no photos, plenty of nonsense, and also sears

Call the cops! Something is up; I am actually doing it.  I am blogging.  Just be prepared.  There will be no photos.  But there will be nonsense.

My camera broke; my camera which I paid $14 for on the clearance (or CLRX as I refer to it in my head) at Sears.  Oh I used to find the most amazing deals there when I worked there for 6 years.  6 YEARS! In retail! And I lived to tell about.  I cannot shop at Sears anymore, when I go there everything seems too expensive.

This is how shopping used to work when I lived, and died, and breathed, the Sears.

Step 1. See an item you LOVE.
Step 2.  Visit it, about once a week checking for it to go on sale.
Step 3.  Watch it, do other people love it?  Is it selling? Will it last until clearance time?
Step 4.  Constantly refigure the price in your mind including the employee discount and tax, until you find a price that suits you.
Step 5. Buy it for an absurd discount.

(On two separate occasions, I bought the most lovely 500 thread count sheets for something ridiculous like $15!)

Oh, I loved shopping at Sears when I had a discount and visited my items to say hello.  Even though I have an amazing job, sometimes I weirdly miss working at that stupid retail store.  Maybe it's just so tender to my heart because I met my husband there.

I do know this.  The last year I worked there, I was so done; I think I might have hung myself eventually, with a vacuum cord.  So I will never go back there (to work).

Back in the day, when I was looking for my first teaching job and I had seven job interviews and no job, I thought to myself, if I don't get a job by X date, I will just give up and follow this inevitable course my life path is on.  I will apply to be a department manager at Sears.  Let's just say I am so very, very happy I am a teacher and not working 60 hour thankless work weeks during Christmas, even though I would be making more money and even though I sometimes feel like I work long thankless weeks, but it's for so much a better cause.

Money isn't everything, people.  Now what is the post even about?  Apparently, Sears.  Which is not what I had in mind when I began.  Life is so strange like that.  I love making plans, but plans often seem to be tossed out the window.

Today I have plans to put away my groceries that are still sitting on the counter, make prepackaged soup to take the ward Christmas party (and pretend I made it), and finally, finally decorate my Christmas tree.

We'll see what the day truly has in store.

dreaming of a white.....

I am dreaming of a white Christmas, but I am also dreaming of a white couch. 

Yes, a lovely white loveseat for my formal living room which I like to call a parlor, because why not?

This is the white couch I want... lovely and cheap from the IKEA.  Just trying to keep it classy.

I have this puppy though, with black fur.  He doesn't shed much, although he does think he's the king of the castle and he is usually allowed on things like couches and beds.   After all, we are horrible dog owners and our dog doesn't think he's a dog.  He thinks he's people.  Not only do I have this silly puppy, but, one day I might actually have small children running around this place (running around with small smudgy fingers) but who knows about these things really?

So.. white couches.

Please discuss.  In the comments.   Pros and Cons.

the latest and greatest

What's going on at your place lately?

We are enjoying a little bit of puppy snuggles

 and A LOT of packing.

Whilst packing yesterday I came across this:

it can't be

guess what time of year it is? 

I swear, it can't be here already.

Here's my financial tip for the day, if you ever want to buy a notebook, crayons, markers, or other school/office supplies, whether you are a teacher or not, you should buy them like you are a freakin' hoarder in August because this stuff is cheap baby.

You don't want to miss the fire dancers.

Let's go back in time.

Picture it.  Sicily. 1925.

Hold up, Sofia Patrillo.  I'm telling the story here.  Don't go back that far.

Picture it.  Hawaii. 2008.

We are actually standing in line to go to the luau I speak of in the story.

Lee and I had just spent a lovely day on the beach in Maui and had plans to go to a luau later that day.  The master is going to take a nap and I am in charge of important stuff like calling to pay for tickets to the luau and watching synchronized swimming in the 08' Olympics.

I am on the phone with the travel agent lady and I ask her about paying for the tickets.  She informs me of different prices for different seating areas.  There is a cheaper price for your basic seats and a higher price for some "upgraded" seats.  As I contemplate, a la Rebecca Black, (Which seat should I take? and all that) I ask the agent if she thinks it's worth it for the better seats.  Are they that much better?  Why should I pay more?

And she says, "I would sit up closer, You don't want to miss the fire dancers!"

Fire dancers? This is pretty exciting stuff.  I think about waking Lee up for a second opinion, but decide against it since he is the grumpiest person on the planet for about 15 minutes after waking up.
I buy the upgraded tickets. You know, YOLO!

Lee wakes up, I tell him the story, and the ever-budget-minded man/voice of reason is disappointed with my choice.  I soothe his irritation by telling him it will all be worth it for those wonderful fire dancers.

We drive to the luau.  We wait in line.  We get inside.  We find our seats. Our more expensive, premiere, up close and personal seats, only to discover every seat in the house is basically equal.  There is nowhere that you can see better than anywhere else.  Thanks a lot. Lady.

Herein lies where I was wrong.  Lee was right.  And a tradition is born.  

Every time I am offered something to buy that is upgraded or seems unnecessary, Lee gives me the same sage financial advice and I will share it with you now, for you and your children to benefit from.

"Don't forget.  You don't want to miss the fire dancers."

mo money mo problems

This is what it looks like when Biff tries to tell me to stop blogging and take him for a walk.
I try to remind him that it's 90 degrees out and he will just lay down in the shade after a while and pant for at least a half an hour following it, but he just doesn't understand reasoning and logic?

Whatever happened to cooking for two tuesdays? Nobody knows.  My computer has a few files with pics of dinners waiting to be shared, but somehow it just never happens.  So what does any good procrastinator do when in the middle of a project and you have been stalled? Obviously, any good procrastinator knows you should start a new project.  Am I right?

So, a new feature/theme is about to enter this blog.

Wait. For. It....


And it will be fun. shockingly. mostly just little anecdotes about funny experiences related to budgeting, reading a plethora of finance novels, and some pretty common sense crap that you should already know like: don't spend money you don't have. you know really deep stuff like that. maybe even some Suze Orman. Where did those capitals come from? I thought they were on strike for this paragraph? Weird!

Did you know I almost changed my major from elementary education to accounting at the last second, but somehow I decided against the change.  It was a close call, that one.  Sometimes I dream of crunching numbers all day in a cubicle while actually secretly playing tetris a la Office Space, but then I realize there wouldn't be any ten year olds to say really awesome things to me like,

"It looks like you had a hole in your skirt and tried to sew it up yourself?" (maybe because I did)


"What is that on your chin?" (a pimple)


"I think you should bring Biff to school." (me too)


"What is a romantic movie to go see in the theater" (What?! Why?!)

Needless to say I love my job.   And I am not an expert on money, but for some reason I feel like telling you some funny stories about money, lattes, living in trailers, and fire dancers. It will all make sense later.  I'm just trying to reel you in.

it can't always be a PR

Today I ran the Hobbler Half Marathon.  I ran it last year and had a great race; one thing I have always loved about Run13 events is the Magleby's Fresh French Toast at the end of the race, but somewhere along the road I became one of those runners who gets sick from eating too soon after running.  I used to be ready to chow down the second I crossed the finish line, but not anymore.  It's actually pretty tragic since I was so looking forward to it. Plus, post script:  I am a foodie, so, you know, frown.

Last year my time was 1:52:53.
I had a VERY ambitious goal to run this race in 1:45 or at least 1:49:59.

Needless to say, after about 3.5 miles with the 1:45 pacer I was keeping up, but it was rough going, I knew that a 1:45 half not going to happen for me today (but it will happen someday)! I just wasn't ready yet.

I thought going into this race it would be easy for me since I just ran the full marathon 4-5 weeks ago (which I know, I know I need to post about it, and I will, I even have some very funny stories to share).  Teaser: Some stories include the importance of wearing your wedding ring to a race ;)

Unfortunately, it seems like the marathon held me back more than anything since I feel like my training already "peaked" and I am in more of a recovery mode right now? Just go with it.   And just to be really annoying and make up more excuses,  we have been so busy that the gym got skipped a good 5 times in the past 2 weeks, (which we NEVER do) including one day that was supposed to be a long run.  Needless to say, it wasn't my best race, but I am satisfied with it because I came to a pretty obvious and yet profound conclusion today...

Every race can't be a PR.

Sounds pretty obvious, but whatever.  I think in my mind I expect to get better every time, not just better, but a lot better.  If every race was a PR, we would all be a bunch of super human athletes and someone would have beaten the 2 hour marathon mark by now.  Am I right?

 (Watch out, 2012 Olympics it's gonna happen.  I've got a feeling. I can't wait. ) 

Just like many things in life what is the sweet without the bitter?  If you have to work really hard to get a certain time, you are going to appreciate it more than if it comes easily.  That's why we crazy running people do it, because it's hard, because we want to accomplish something difficult, because we want to fight for it with blood, sweat, and tears.

Subject change coming... now. 

The funniest part of this race was how none of my family/friends came to see me at the end.  I promise, I am not complaining at all. I run for me, not to get attention or recognition from others and I signed up for this race a little over a week ago,  so that's pretty short notice.  So here's the funny part: At the finish line: Everyone is hugging and talking to their families and what not and I am just kind of like this weird little orphan since most people don't go to a race alone.  Even if their family doesn't come people usually have a running partner or something.  I definitely saw people I know there and chatted a bit, but still I'm just kind of a loner.  Not that funny yet, but here it is...

An old ex-boyfriend of mine saw me from a few yards away and waved.  First, I didn't even recognize him, but then I did, and then I thought,  "I should probably go say hi to be polite, but it's kind of awkward that I'm just this weird little orphan here?"  I can't even remember if I waved back or if I just gave him a weird look.  I was tired/out of it!  Mostly I just didn't want to talk to this guy and his cute wife because I didn't want them to feel bad for me that I was alone, because I didn't feel bad about being alone.

The other funny part is that right before I saw him I was about to walk over to this wet grassy hill (next to where they were sitting) and flop down on the grass like a dead body, but then I saw him and unfortunately that wasn't an option anymore.  Something about pride?

Since I was an orphan there I took some photos of myself afterwards, myspace style in the bathroom.  Whatever, it's for posterity. Or something. 

PS: If you're into race times, the clock read 1:58:something, official time unknown as of yet. 

P.P.S: If you read this entire long post, you probably deserve an award for being such an awesome friend who listens to my ramblings.

Friday, July 6, 2012


The husband was sitting next to me on the couch e-mailing our real estate agent at 10:00 PM because we are pretty much best friends with her or something, when I thought it would be fun to sneakily take a picture of Biff who snuck up onto the couch to cuddle.

Only the best part was...
Lee looked over in shock to discover me taking a photo of him.
The quality is horrible.
The expression is priceless.
I. Can't. Stop. Laughing.

Me: I'm posting this on the internet.
Lee: You get your kicks from some weird stuff.

Thursday, July 5, 2012


Sometimes you just sit on the couch in a stripey top and yoga pants pondering over those really deep thoughts in life like....

  • If I leave in 5 minutes can I make it to spin class or shall I just drive to the gas station (where they know my name by the way) and buy a DDP?  Either way I really hope that, the dead dragon fly can somehow find it's way off of my windshield wiper without my assistance, but if not, what shall I do?
  • Is it worth it to buy a house with a creepy crawl space that I will always imagine dead bodies are buried in, to have 2, count them TWO  walk in closets in the master bedroom?
  • Stinky puppies are really nice to have around your house sometimes; like when they come sit next to you on the couch and act like you are really something special. Other times it is not so nice, like when their dog breath stinks up your car when you take them for a ride.
  • Reading this blog always makes me feel poetic and makes me wish I could write with the same openness, femininity, and strength.  I really love this post.  I feel the same; that I am in the Tuesday of my life.
  • Do other people look at me and think my life is strange?  I bet they do.
  • Why do I always feel the need to use so many commas....
  • Also this song and the rain are making me really happy today.  I pretty much melt when the temps go over 80.

I am going to open the windows, let the fresh air in, and bake something.  It's just that kind of day.

eating produce: yes, you can!

It seems I am always hearing people say, they can't get their kids/family/self/great aunt marge/husband/brother/daughter to eat fruits & veggies or that they don't like them.

I don't get it.

Have you ever seen that commercial for V8 juice that says, "Do you ever wish vegetables didn't taste so vegetable-y?"

That commercial makes my blood boil...

No! I don't wish vegetables tasted different because they taste awesome.

That said, I know not everyone likes produce and a lot of people with good intentions buy produce, which can be expensive, and it goes to waste before it is eaten. 

Confession #1: I have noticed that in our family (just me and the hubster) we used to let our produce go bad a lot. 
Confession #2: In fact, for the first year we were married I only even cooked with canned veggies, frozen veggies, and packets of mashed potatoes because I knew they would go bad. (DISGUSTING RIGHT?!)

Well I have found some magical tricks for putting your produce to good use.  Getting it and all of its wonderful nutrients in your belly.  They seem like common sense, but these days common sense just isn't so common.

There are two rules:

1. Plan your meals ahead of time AND make using produce your #1 priority in meal planning.
  •  If you have corn, plan a dish that goes with corn, if you have bell peppers plan to make fajitas, if you have potatoes, plan a dish that goes with mashed potatoes/baked potatoes.  Sounds pretty easy and it is.  You have to be flexible and can't just make what sounds good at the time, plan to use your produce and you will.

2. Prepare the produce that you want eaten first (AKA it's ripe/ready to be eaten/can't last much longer) and display it where you and other people will quickly notice it when hungry.
  •  You know that feeling of being hungry and you have got to eat something NOW or you are going to throw something through the window? Okay, maybe you don't ever get like that, but if you do, you know that when that happens you are going to eat something that takes zero time to prepare like an entire family size bag of doritos BUT if you have a clear dish of clean apples on the kitchen counter you are going to be more likely to eat it than if they are hidden away in the fridge.  If you have a cantaloupe cut up into pieces, in a clear (clear is important so people can see it) dish, placed at eye level in the fridge, people will be more likely to eat it than if it is tucked away uncut in the produce drawer.
Bananas & Apples ready to go! 
Pineapple isn't ready yet, but getting it eaten isn't my top priority, when it is, I'll cut it up and put it in the fridge.

Cherries, Salad, and Strawberries, front and center.

Peppers and tomatoes, they look very yummy and colorful and there's no question of what they are or if you would need to take time to ready them.

I hope you enjoyed this little rant.  I think I'll go eat some doritos now.

 Just because the produce is there doesn't mean it will be chosen every time, but at least it's a quick option.

twas the night before

twas the night before my marathon and all through the house, not a creature could sleep since we have to wake up at something crazy like 3 in the flappin' morning to get me to the starting line.

eating some carbs

Looking at my race packet:

Doubting if I will really 'enjoy' the pain I have signed up for...

Put in any last minute suggestions for my playlist which I am compiling right now! Go!

epic fail

Lee really hates when people say epic fail.
But I have to tell you, me + photo challenge = epic fail

That's all...

The more days passed, the more I procrastinated posting, because there were too many days to make up for.  I even failed the cooking posts.

Just for a photo, here's a photo I've never posted of a project I did last year.
No, I did not make it up, yes I copied it.  Feel free to be offended.  Directions Here. 

Instead of blogging I've been...
  1. Running miles and miles and miles (my marathon is in ONE WEEK)!
  2. Teaching children (who are our future) obviously this is very time consuming and important.
  3. Watching The Bachelorette, Modern Family, and New Girl on Hulu ---obviously time consuming and unimportant.
  4. Going to lots of girl/date/lunches/and bridal shower things.
  5. Having our family photos with Lee's family rescheduled three times.
  6. Going to an annual 5th grade hoe down (pretty much Lee's favorite night of the year, I drag him out of the house and make him dance with me in front of a bunch of ten year old kids).
  7.  Upon receiving golf clubs for my birthday from Lee, we've gone out to practice my swing at the driving range; after realizing there is a strong correlation between proper swing form and Vanna White's Jeopardy poses I have greatly improved.
 Any tid bits of advice for my marathon next week?

 These are my goals:
  1. Don't Die.
  2. Don't want to die during it.
  3. Finish the race.
  4. Don't faint.
  5. Don't puke.  (I'm on a ten year vomit free streak)
  6. Don't hate it at the end.
  7. Enjoy the day.

DIY & couch time

"Something you made" 

Well, I didn't really "make" this,
 but I painted the frame, 
got rid of the backing,
 and put the "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON" vinyl on it.
Personally,  I love it. 
Picture is not that great; I think you can even kinda see my reflection in the glass. Ha!

"a favourite place"

Since I ran my first and only 20 miler today, my favorite place right now is the couch.
Especially with my tired feet elevated.
They feel like they are made of lead, but I lived through it.

reading material & snacks

What you are reading...

This should really be labeled what you are trying to read because frankly I haven't had the time for reading lately.  I am so glad my last reeeeaaallly long run is this Saturday (20 miles) after that I'll be into that magical stage of tapering (running less and less until the day of the race).

Spending 3 hours running on your only non-Sabbath-day-off-of-work (aka the day for doing all your errands)  has been mentally exhausting.  Luckily, Lee has really helped me pick up the slack with the cleaning and trips to Walmart around here.

Now I just need some tips on how to get him to give me nightly foot massages...

Let's talk about something really interesting...

9 AM mini snickers
 3:30 PM banana & pink lady apple
3:45 PM Cheetos & DDP

8:30 PM...

Mini Cheese Cake

Do you eat as many snacks as I do?
I already know that.  
It's a rhetorical question.

PS: I only ate 1/4 of that mini cheesecake so don't be judging me.  Unless it makes you feel better about yourself then by all means do it, but just don't be telling me what a cow of an eater I am.  I am pretty sure I got that enough growing up. Every time my grandpa came over for dinner he'd say, "She sure has a healthy appetite!" Thanks gramps... I'll pretend that's a compliment.

grass, love, & lasagna

This photo challenge is getting old. I hope I make it to the end of the month!



And now for the cooking...

This week I made lasagna.  It's a bit of a harder dish, but we went to Olive Garden last Thursday and Lee ordered lasagna.  Afterward he said that the lasagna I make is better, so I wanted to make it.

I got this recipe from my mom, but I don't think she made it up or anything.  Most recipes started somewhere, just not sure where.

Here's what you need for a basic lasagna...

1 lb of beef
Lasagna noodles
1 can of tomato sauce
2 cans of tomato paste
1 1/2 cups of water
1/4 cup onion
2 cups Monterrey Jack Cheese
Cottage Cheese

First thing you would do is to boil a pot of water to cook your noodles (you will need 9-12 depending on how many layers you want to do)

Then you will brown your beef, I usually sautee the onions in a bit of butter and then put the beef in with the onion. (Original recipe calls for a full onion, but I don't think anything needs a full onion).  I also salt and pepper the meat as it cooks, but you could add other spices as well.

Add the water, tomato sauce, & paste to the beef.

Mix the cheeses (grate the Monterrey) together in a bowl.

Put a little sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan, layer three noodles, then layer sauce, then layer cheese, repeat until you run out of ingredients.  Lastly put some extra Monterrey Jack Cheese on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. ENJOY!

We also had green salad and garlic bread.

happiness & mums

"Something that makes you happy... "

Going out for a girls' lunch and getting a pedicure. 

I got these mums from one of my student's for teacher appreciation week.
I hope you had a great day celebrating another kind of mums.

Friday, May 11, 2012


I usually love spending time in the kitchen.

BUT, I don't think the kitchen is, "a woman's place."  I do most of the cooking at our house for two reasons:

1. I love food, so I want my food to taste delicious.

2. I enjoy cooking; maybe one reason I enjoy it is because I like to feel like I am taking care of/serving those I love.

"something you do every day"

I don't teach every day, but I don't do much every day besides eat and sleep. I run a lot, but I take rest days. 

What do you do every day?

no cooking Tuesday

I am sorry to say,  I have no cooking post this week!
 What our dinners looked like (aka why no cooking post this week)...

1. sharing a totino's pizza with a side of salad (lame)
2. pot roast (already been featured)
3. left over pot roast
4. cafe rio (not cooking)
5. steak and potatoes (at my MIL's house)
6. take out chinese food (not cooking)
7. oatmeal for me and lee ate at work b/c of working late

We do not usually eat out even once a week, let alone twice.

Next week, I hope to do better.  We will see.

Anyway,  today I am supposed to share a photo of "a smell you adore"

Before you think I am ingesting chemicals or making meth, this picture is supposed to represent what my house smells like when it is clean.  Not that I always use harsh chemicals, sometimes I use vinegar and baking soda and other natural substances, but sometimes you just need a little bleach to feel like it is really, really, really,  clean.  You know what I mean?

Yesterday I was supposed to share a photo of, "someone that inspires you."

Well shoot.  
That's kind of tough. 
There are so many people who do.
I am kind of crabby today.
and yesterday.
and the day before. 
Therefore, I decided not to take this one too seriously.

Monday, May 7, 2012


I am behind so I am going to have to post twice today. Yikes!
This is for yesterday... a picture of you.

I drew this self portrait while I was teaching my students how to draw their own. I should probably become a professional art teacher instead of an elementary teacher who has to teach art sometimes because that drawing is pretty much an exact likeness, right?

here's my photo for...


Do you have a planner?

Some people use a blackberry, their iphone, or electronic devices.  Personally, I just really like an old fashioned paper planner.  There is something great about writing it down, with a pen, in your own handwriting.

Lately I have seen quite a few ladies at the grocery store using their ipad for a grocery list.  And for some reason it bugs me.  I could see the convenience of having it on their iphone, but an ipad is pretty big to lug around the grocery store?  I would be worried I was going to drop it!

How do you keep track of all the plans in your life?

Friday, May 4, 2012


When I first started thinking, "what will I take a photo of today that is fun?" I automatically thought of running, but I talk about that enough. Then I thought of my birthday lunch celebration with my BFF coworkers today, but I didn't want to ask them if I could post a picture of them on my blog. Then I thought about how much fun I have teaching every day, but I can't post photos of that because of my students.

I was stumped.

 I almost took a photo of the "Fun." CD I bought a few weeks ago, but when I walked through the door after getting home from work and my dog grunted, whined, jumped around, jumped on me, wagged his tail, and was generally acting like a lunatic from excitement to see me I realized I didn't have to be the one having fun in the photo.

The best (and most fun) part of my dog's day is...

going for a walk.

He loves walks so much that we can't even say the word, "walk" in our house without him going insane thinking he gets to go on one. Lee and I spell it to each other if we are discussing it.

Me: Should we take Biff for a W-A-L-K?
If we decide to go we then say, "go for a walk?" and Biff runs around like a maniac jumping on and off couches and circling the house.

We have recently tried to replace the word "walk" with "disneyland" to try to get Biff to respond with excitement when we say, "go to disneyland?" just because we think it would be a riot, but so far no luck.

I hope you had some fun today.

Something I wore today...

Today was our annual "fun run" at the school where I teach.  The fun part comes in when the really athletic kids don't want to let me pass them.  They keep sprinting and then getting too tired to go on, but what I can I say? Slow and steady wins the race.

Wednesday, May 2, 2012


I saw a lot of beautiful skylines as I went on my 7 mile run earlier tonight, but taking a camera on a run isn't very practical.  During the last half mile I was lucky enough to have a fluffy little piece of nature float into my eye and attack! 

This skyline was not as good as some of the sights I saw on my run, but it was just a few steps away from my door.

cooking for two tuesday & challenge

This week I cheated; I am running out of new ideas for dinners that haven't been featured.  Yikes! Our featured dinner came from a box.  This box:

It costs somewhere between 2-3 dollars and is easy.  It doesn't taste half bad either.  You pour a can of soup (it's all there in the box, I imagine it's cream of chicken, but it also has carrots, peas, and potatoes) into a pan. Then you add 1/2 cup of water to the powder packet for the biscuits and drop balls of dough onto the top and bake for 35 minutes.

Better than eating out if you ask me.

We also had steamed broccoli, carrots, tomato slices, and apple slices. 

Don't you love lace?
Me too, as featured in a new shirt I wore today.

I'm trying to mix it up here and be more creative so I am going to try
(keyword being try) to complete a photo-a-day challenge during May.

today's photo...

I wanted to take a photo during yoga class tonight, but I didn't think anyone there would appreciate it.

If you're interested in the photo a day challenge click here.

lightening up

Well, since I was such downer in my last post, I thought I could lighten up a bit.

I thought I could take a leaf out of Amy's book who often posts "friday funnies" and post some of my favorite meme/pictures from pinterest.

Hope you love this post...

I heard you like, "ridiculously photogenic guy," well this one takes the cake.
 I don't even know what the funniest part of this is.

DIY projects: Nailed it.

Last night, I looked up old Nsync* videos on youtube; wow, that was NOT a mistake.
Their acting was so, so, so bad, and yet their dancing was so good ;)

The best part about watching old Nsync videos and laughing at them is realizing Justin Timberlake still has a legitimate career.
