Cheater cinnamon Rolls

Best idea ever. Take day old rolls, cut them up with scissors, sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar, drizzle with powdered sugar/milk frosting, microwave 10 seconds, and then eat the most delicious breakfast ever. #betterthancinnamonrolls

Austin, TX pool

It's state swimming and diving season. I went with my friend Camille to support her daughter who is a diver! It seemed weird to not be watching water polo.

Beautiful sunset

We've had an incredibly mild winter.  Only a couple of freezes and no snow or ice (so far).  And lots of 60-70 degree days.  This is what texas winter's are all about.

Indoor soccer

Catherine had her first indoor soccer game of the season this morning. I really like the fast pace and off the wall play. These are fun games to watch.

Baseball coaches clinic

Me and 75 men attended the baseball coaching clinic. Then we had to pick up our equipment. When I got to the front of the line, the guy said loudly "Do you have any balls?" I replied, "No, I was not at the coach look to pick up my bucket . . . and I'm a girl" ha ha!
Then I got home and my boxes of supposed baseballs, ended up being tee balls. ugh!!!

A new bigger waffle maker

After nearly 20 years, I had to buy a new waffle maker. 4 at a time really speeds up the morning routine.

Taking Catherine lunch at school

She wanted Jamba juice. I took lunch to all the girls today, but Catherine was the only one I saw-- the other two weren't at lunch yet so I just dropped it at the pick up table.

The adulting award

This week I had a physical, did an annual gynecology exam, scheduled a mammogram, and more. Somehow, I felt like I deserved an award. So I gave myself one!

Poor Owen --

He looked up with big eyes and said he was the only person without an alarm clock in the whole family. So, I was a sucker and took him to get one.

An evening out

To celebrate a friend's birthday we went to a vegetarian indian restaurant called "cosmic cafe" and also did a yoga class and then went to the cupcake ATM. Yummy!
