Tomorrow I’m going on a short road trip with my parents!
I was trying to think of the last time I went on a long car trip with just my parents.
I can’t even remember.
Before my sister maybe?
If that’s the case, I’m thinking it’s been 25 years.
Regardless, I’ve got my “fun bag” of magazines, books, podcasts, and music to sing aloud to (no barbies or coloring books like in the old days), so I should keep myself occupied in the backseat.
I will also try my best not to repeatedly ask, “Are we there yet?” Or continually tell them I’m hungry.
Considering I still do all those annoying things on road trips with Will, they’re in for quite a treat.
Dogs get hangry too.
And it’s a little scary.
So Teddy, our beloved, happy-go-lucky lab, has grown into quite a chunk.
Labs are often predisposed to weight gain, but our Teddy takes the cake.
Sooo, Teddy is on a doggy weight loss plan and diet food.
Sounds awful, right?
What’s hilarious, though, are the parallels between her diet and anytime I’ve dieted in my life.
Just as I bark and squak around mealtime when I haven’t eaten as much as I normally do, Teddy’s right on target at 5:30 AM and PM.
Just like I ravenously attack my dinner and feel “so totally thrilled” with salad AGAIN, Teddy also dives into her diet friendly food and immediately returns to the door to make sure I didn’t forget her real food.
As if her dinner was just a snack.
I get it, totally. A woman after my own heart.
She’s a dear, but she’s not nearly as active anymore. Just as I (occasionally) loathe intense exercise, Teddy Tutu isn’t so much into increased activity these days ether.
Our Teddy. God help us all.
Two Words: Lime Basil
Did you know that’s a thing?
Like a real life type of basil?
I had no idea.
I bought a lime basil pod for my latest aerogarden and was so surprised to find just how lime-y it is!
Lime-y in the best way possible.
My green monsters taste like fragrant citrus frozen treats.
Thankfully, I was blessed to have perfectly straight teeth.
My parents were very thankful, considering they had to put two sets on poor P.
Every dentist appointment they make note of my nice, straight teeth… Which I’m sure they do to flatter you, right?
Anyway, I had a checkup earlier this week and as the doctor finished his exam he said, “Have you ever thought about braces?”
I honestly looked at him like he had four heads and said, “Are you being serious?!”
Anyway, apparently I have a gap between my upper and lower teeth that could be fixed by braces “if I wanted.”
Considering I’m not entirely keen on wearing braces for a year, oh and the thousands of dollars I just so happen to have lying around for that sort of thing I kindly declined.
But remained a little self-conscious the rest of the day.
Boomer Sooner Season
Guys, football kicks off in a month.
How is this even possible!?
I’m debating whether I’ll go to the first game. I always like to, but it is usually so dang hot and I want to die, and Will wants to die because of what a pleasure I am to be around when I want to die.
So yeah. Heat. Football. Bah.
Regardless, I’m excited it’s here!
Lets discuss mini cupcakes
Layla and my mom brought Will over a cupcake for his birthday earlier this week. So sweet! Layla also kindly picked out a teeny vanilla cupcake for her aunt Brittny to accompany Will’s treat.
It was divine.
But it got me thinking.
What are your thoughts on mini cupcakes?
I decided my opinion really depends.
It was a fantastic surprise earlier this week.
It was a tiny bite to enjoy without any guilt. I felt like I got the best of both worlds!
However, today I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed and hangry. I did a hard workout and would probably welcome a big fat cupcake if it nicely wedged itself into today’s macro count.
A mini cupcake would probably just annoy me.
So yeah. I think it probably just depends on the person...and their mood.
That’s all for today! Check in tomorrow! 💗
