I was so excited to come home from work yesterday and find that Ina's new toy - her Jumperoo - had been delivered and was on the front porch.  

However, after I opened the box I quickly became un-excited.

As I was muttering through the assembly directions, and trying to keep my words under my breath, I thought, This thing should come with a bottle of wine.

About half-way through I gave up and went to investigate the other box that had been delivered today.

It was a box from SmarteRita, a "healthier" margarita the company sent me to try.

You might say so, but I say it was divine intervention.

The delicious margarita was just what I needed to finish the job.  (The company also sent me the SkinnyGirl margarita to compare - I will post a review of that soon.)


Ina's schedule allowed me to run 4 treadmill miles yesterday.  Ahhh, the exhaustion between 4 and 3 miles is huge, but it hurt so good.


Breakfast - overnight oats

Lunch - another loaded sweet potato (with black beans, corn, carne asada, FF sour cream, salsa, and cilantro)- what have I done without these my entire life?

Snacks - hard boiled eggs, popcorn, and bran flakes

Dinner - cheeseburger casserole following *this recipe* and steamed broccoli

Thought for the day

If you haven't seen the Dove Beauty Sketches Video you need to watch it.  Now.  Thanks Sarah for putting it on your blog!


  1. Adore this post! Pinning the cheeseburger casserole, too. Sounds right up my husband's alley! Cheers!

  2. Pork in a sweet potato is a delicious find. I'll have to try mixing in the rest of the ingredients you have been. Sounds excellent. Glad you didn't find my soap box too soap boxy. -S
