- old navy. cute kids clothes, right??!! but why is it that either:
#1. everytime i buy something on sale, i go to the register and it doesn't ring up on sale and i have to tell the cash register girl and she changes it or she says nope, you must have been looking at the wrong sign (even though the outfit was literally sitting on top of the sign).
#2. so i go ahead and buy the kids clothes and then 24-48 hours later, everything is on-sale...a good 30-40% off (yes i know i can take my receipt back and get the difference, but another trip...). anyways, it leaves me confused and hatin.
man, i get in these phases where i am a rock-star...trying new recipes (mostly only those who have been successfully attempted & made by my fabulous sisters or sister-in-laws) and even making a few recipes ahead of the game and freezing them in the freezer. but then it just gets buggin sometimes and i get in a rut...you have to BUY it and PREPARE it and SERVE it and CLEAN it up and so on and so forth. it's literallytiring thinking about it and i mean if someone asked me what is the most annoying question you can think of, my answer just might be:
"what is for dinner?" AHHHHHHHHHHH. help me.
but then j. cam's skills are minimal and i can only survive on a few nights of eggs & cinnamon toast or frozen pizza, so back to the kitchen i go because i really do luv to cook, the way you feel after you serve a yummy meal, and to have fun convo at the dinner table.
- cell phones.
i luv my cell phone, um lUv. it saved me in san diego when i could talk endlessly to my sisters and mom when i was going through a hard time & not able to travel home much. it allows us to keep updated so easily and quickly with one another. it's fun. the apps, let's not even start right...they are ridiculously cool and creative and unbelievable.
but last week when i was coaching a young women's basketball game and when the girls subbed in and out of the game, they went right to their cell phones when they were on the sidelines, my eyes started opening a little. i thought, what are they doing?...but then, mostly, i started asking myself the same question...what am I doing? how much am i "into" my phone. how many days of the week do i check that phone first thing in the morning, before i do anything else. it can be consuming. then, a couple nights ago i watched extreme makeover: home addition and i took this pledge...im embarrassed to say that i have texted while driving, ive entered an address into a gps while driving. sometimes the things we luv can become the very things we hate if we let them consume us.
- people watching at the gym
...it's fun...it's sometimes funny...it's interesting...it's sometimes inspiring...i feel lucky to have one so close to my house, i got a super slick deal on my membership & it includes daycare (holla!), it's an adequate alternative to the great outdoors in the dreary winter months...BUT
im freaking out lately...it's like i go to the gym and i must be going at the wrong times because there are hardly any open treadmills, workout equipment in general (except for the lame stuff nobody wants, you know what i mean) and then i look at the peeps on the treadmills and they are on their cell phones (*see luv / hate comment above...), laughing and chit chatting to their neighbor at 2.5 speed, continuously putting their hair (and by hair, i mean extensions) up and down from a pony tail...i want to yell "hello people, either start kicking your trash or get off the machine so i can start kicking my own...its called a workout & time is precious." okay that was kinda harsh and slightly rude but don't worry because it bites me in the hiney everytime i think those things because i usually end up right next to the person with ripe b.o.
i'd LUV to hear about your luv / hate relationships...or can you relate to any of mine...
do you text when you drive?
i don't anymore. i even talked to my girls about it, so they will help by also not bothering me so much when i drive (with changing dvds, treats, yelling, etc).

what's your favorite recipe right now?
lately i have been obsessed with soups (they are easy andi can throw them in the crock pot...my sister lindsey has a killer white chicken chili recipe, let me know if you are interested).
where do you like to shop for kids clothes?
i usually shop at target & old navy. i always hear people getting great deals at macy's (yes, you nachelle), where do you get the best deals?
do you usually end up next to the person with b.o.?
yes, 50% of the time.
