Beautiful Ballerina

Well... it was our 3rd ballet recital in the life of Goosie. It was wonderful! She smiles/No, BEAMS on stage. I love watching every second of her life. I love her excitement, curiosity, and beauty. I'm so fortunate to have resilient children!

Cake... YUM!

Our sweet neighbor had a birthday this past weekend. I was so lucky to celebrate it with her and another dear friend. I have to say... I have GREAT neighbors! We sat on the patio with Mai Tai's, snacks and cake and sun! Mrs. Tricia loves the sun and fun so I had an excuse to make the "flip flop" cake! Happy Birthday, Mrs. Tricia!

We're baking again...

Pizza that is... a weekly tradition to yank that heavy baking stone from the cabinet and warm it in a cold oven.
I'm totally addicted and the Mr. swears there is no other pizza for him.
The kid's version: pepperoni and mozzerella
The adult version: chicken, basil, and goat cheese
I'll be back after I find a napkin!

Sweet donation!

This tutu is going for a very special cause!!! I'm so excited to donate a tutu set for dear friends of ours that we admire so very much! Our friend Jay is a 3+ year survivor of cancer. He and his wife, Jessica, recently completed a marathon in San Diego!!!! To help support their endeavor they are having a "Trivia Night" so here is the latest tutu that is going to be auctioned to support all their hard work!!!

Food Journal

Well... I have decided that it's time to start the food journal, again. I need some accountability so I'm writing down everything I eat and drink. I've lost 3.5 pounds this week so far. Plus, I'm tracking my exercise. I have been a bit lazy in that department as well.
We are looking into the Mediterranean diet. It is supposed to help RA patients. I have noticed an increase in "flares" when I eat carbs so let's hope this transition works.
Last nights dinner was so yummy!!! Sauteed chicken and mushrooms over a bed of lettuce and couscous surrounded by fresh cucumbers. I could eat like this everyday!

Bounced Back!

I bounced back rather quickly from this week's dose of methotrexate. I believe the reason why is because the Mr. was home and I gave in and simply rested. I have a tutu to finish for a wonderful auction/trivia night we are attending soon! I hope it sells as well as the one I did for Goosie's school!! It goes for a great cause and great people!!!

We did tons of landscaping this week. I get the weekend off since the Mr. is working the entire weekend... never thought I'd be happy that he's working and the projects are delayed :).
It's Friday and I get to clean the three toilets and a few tubs and showers... and... fulfill a tutu order. Which means, making fun for a little girl!
