Thursday Randoms

My week so far...

Crock Pot Week: What did you think of it? Have you tried any of the recipes? Let me know!

Gardening: On Sunday, I planted my garden! Three half whiskey barrels (that smell like Jack Daniels) filled with soil. I planted tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers and tomatillos, as well as cilantro, parsley, basil and green onion. I plan on finding some mint and doing that too. I'll keep you updated as things grow. Check out my early morning gardening outfit - workout clothes.
Blogging: I've gotten into the habit of scheduling posts. I write them as they come to me and schedule them for certain days. All I have to do is make sure they show up, and post them on FB and Twitter. My only issue is when I have a random post that I need to post right then! Sometimes I do double posts, sometimes I just move the scheduled post. In fact, I started writing this post on Monday. Haha.

Sleeping Babies: Anything more cute than this? Check out that chubby squish face.
 Baby Sunglasses: Second cutest thing this week. She rocks them.
Working Out: Yep, it has begun. I started the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred on Monday. Owie, that first day sucked. I took measurements and weighed myself - I'll have a post about this once I'm done at the end of the month. As long as I make it and don't hurt myself in the process like last time...

Baby Hair: Ok, more about Penny. Her hair has gotten LONG. I was checking out newborn photos of her and it was short. I might have to trim the back or something in a month or two so she doesn't grown a baby mullet.

One Month: On Saturday, we'll have been in Alabama for one month! More on that next week.

My Birthday: We went out to a pizza restaurant and it was tasty. Brandon drove me by the spa where I could go get my massage he surprised me with! I have that planned for the weekend. It was a good, relaxing day!
April Photo-a-Day: This is floating around the blogosphere. I decided to give it a whirl and take photos with my phone for a month! Yeah, I know I have a fancy schmancy camera. I still use it for all my nice shots! Check out my Facebook page for the photos every day or wait until the end of the month when I will showcase them all :)


  1. I liked crock-pot week and am excited to try some of the recipes! Nice work on the planting. Tomatillos - I should do some of those..we love them! Good luck with working out!! Have a lovely day!

  2. I loved the crock pot recipes. I'll be trying some next paycheck because we only go grocery shopping once a paycheck. And, I love those whiskey barrels. I pine over them every time I'm in the PX. But, I won't let myself get any until I come up with a plan and actually start gardening. But, the ground is so hard! haha I get side tracked.

  3. The recipes all looked so good. I haven't tried them yet since we've been out of town but I plan on it! Love the crock-pot!

    Those barrels are awesome! What a perfect idea for a garden, it's too hard to grow anything in our soil but that would work perfectly!

    Good luck with the Shred! It's a good workout. And I LOVE Penny's baby cheeks! So cute!

  4. I think I'd die on the Shred.

    Yay for a space! Fantastic.
