blueberry lemon

So I’ve been a bit scattered as of late.  I just can’t seem to get into a schedule pattern that I can maintain.

Why you ask?

Well, I’ll tell you since you seem insistent on an answer.

I’ve joined a roller derby league!  It is so much fun.

Don’t get me wrong, right now I stink.  I thought I knew how to roller skate, wrong.  I stink but that’s okay.

As Adam says, I’m learning.  So wise that one, I think I’ll keep him.

Down side, it’s two hours away. Boo!  So that means I have a marathon day once a week where I work for 10 hours, drive two hours to practice, practice for two hours, drive home for two hours and then tell Adam all about my day.  Oh this isn’t a complaint, as long as it’s fun I’ll keep doing it but I’m afraid I haven’t balanced out the rest of my week.  Things keep getting pushed back.

I don’t do all of my other exercises, meal planning is a bit off and I haven’t been able to tell you all about this cake I made.  Well bear with me.  I’m getting there. I don’t like when I don’t have a regular schedule so this little disorder should be temporary.

Meanwhile I made you this cake.  It’s lemony. It’s blueberry-ey.  I used this icing.  You should make this, it should get you in the spring state of mind.

newton & blueberry lemon cake

Hi friends!

I’ve missed you.

I’ve been busy, sort of.

I’ve had a bit of a change to my schedule that I’m still working out and that has made me a bit out of sorts.

It’s all worth it..I think.  I’m being bold and brave.  The whole purpose of this blog so I’m sure you understand.

But I have missed you.

I made you (and my husband who is my biggest supporter..swoon!) a cake.

As you can tell it is beagle approved.  I’ll post the recipe real soon.

Do you see him?

Just waiting for his moment to pounce…bad beagle.

Thanks for all the kindness.

Have a fantastic day!

kale walnut salad 2

I don’t know about you guys but when I get home from work I am hard-wired to eat.

I’m not ready for dinner per say.  In fact we are late eaters but I do need something.

I try to be proactive and have something good for me waiting.

kale walnut salad

You know, like this.  Something good and delicious and easy to get at so I don’t just jam handfuls of cheez-its and jelly beans into my face.  It happens, it’s not pretty looking.

Well that’s where this salad came about. I prepped it on a Sunday and thought it should get me through Wednesday.  You are one smart cookie Jennifer.  You got this adult thing figured out.

What you don’t have figured out is how not to keep “taste-testing” this amazing salad on Sunday and then eat all of it on Monday!

Happy Friday Folks!

We did it.  We made it to March.

Soon it will be Spring and things will be fresh and new.

Warm and bright.  Longer days and not so frigid nights.

But for now we still have snow and shoveling and cold feet and chapped lips.

Lets embrace these waning days of winter because I’m sure come the heat of summer I will be lamenting for them.

That’s just the way I roll!

Have a great weekend all!
