help me

Yesterday, I ate this junk food:

strawberry cupcake at work
1 bite of another wonderful dessert (chocolate/caramel/salt brownie thing)
5 Chips Ahoy cookies (chewy) at home after Cora went to sleep
most of 2 Steel City Pops thanks to Halley at band practice (she didn’t like hers, so I got it)
5 more Chips Ahoy cookies before bed

On top of that, I had large amount of fruit while Cora was eating fruit, and I made an awesome juice concoction to drink with dinner.

I need help!


I got ’em, y’all! They aren’t in my hair. They’re on my blog about my weekend! Tricked ya.

dinner at Bottega Cafe with Brains – we dropped Corita off and went out! I got exactly the same dish as I got with the girls, and it was excellent. Also, I could fully taste the food this time. We didn’t get dessert, but we got the baked feta we’d heard about. It was good, but it wasn’t what I had envisioned. Dinner took longer than we thought it would, so instead of going to Urban Standard afterward, we stopped by O’Henry’s before picking Cora up. After she went to bed, we watched 3 episodes of Arrested Development. I really wanted to take a picture of us together, but we just didn’t. We looked hot!

We went to Homestead Hollow with our friends, Charlie & Maddy and their kids, Lucy & Frank. It was better than I thought it would be. 

After that, we took naps. Dinner was at Newk’s, and it was grand. Cora loves their little breadstick cracker things.

Mother’s Day! It’s been a fun day spending time with my little one. Brian made me biscuits for breakfast, and I had flowers on the table waiting for me. Church was good. Cora looked super adorable in her dress that she chose to wear today. 
She was so sleepy that we had to skip lunch, so we went to eat Five Guys after she woke up at the random time of 3 PM or so. It was great! My gift was a new swing for the backyard since ours needs to be thrown away! The new one isn’t wood and can’t rot or be ruined by carpenter bees. I love it! Brian also made me brownies this evening, and I got the cutest card ever.

Now, I’m going to watch some Parks & Rec and probably Arrested Development! (Casey, I like it now. I’m not sure why I didn’t before!)


You know what sucks about always being busy? You don’t have enough memory left to remember for 2 days what you wanted to blog about. I had a whole list of things to talk about regarding what I did Tuesday and how good and accomplished I felt, but it’s almost all gone from my head. You lose.

GOOD THING: This day is almost over.
BAD THING: I still have to make a bracelet tonight that I find really annoying to make.
