July 2011 Archives – 2/4 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


So rumor has it, there’s a pretty darn crazy heat wave gripping many parts of the U.S. Not that I’d know from experience, cause it’s not even breaking 70 here. Seriously. A guy actually added up the minutes over 80 degrees we’ve had this year, and it’s 78 minutes. Yes folks, Seattle has had 78 […]

We’ve all heard it time and time again:  Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day.  In fact, some people say (Hey Ryan!) it’s THE most important meal of the day because, among other things, it stokes and fuels the metabolism for the entire day.  This is especially important if one is […]

How funny is it that I am finding myself writing this post today? Or is it just cruel? 😉 I *just* finished writing this post on my current state of mind, which pretty much clues you in to how I’ve been doing lately. Confession: I’m lost. Not the good kind of lost. Each day begins […]

This has been a busy summer. No doubt about it. We haven’t had a free weekend since the middle of May and we don’t have one till the middle of August. I got up this morning and starting thinking about the day and what had to be done. We are going to the air show. […]

I’m taking a review of sorts, a review of me.  You see, I have become complacent these last few months, especially the last month.  There has been a beach vacation and then a lake vacation and lots of Summer activities.  I have the three kiddos home with me and my husband has been traveling for […]

It’s one thing for me to be bored, popping a squat on the couch and sticking my fingers into a bag of chips nice bag of measured out healthy almonds while chomping away mindlessly. (Of course it’s not a good habit to be mindlessly eating anything, but at least it’s me.) It’s quite another thing, […]

For years and years, I struggled with the stupid snooze button. I was a slave to it.  I never hit it just once. It was always more like 3 or 4 times, at least. I would end up setting my alarm for 30 minutes before  I needed to get up just so I could go […]

Good morning, all! It’s Wednesday, and not only is it hump day (am I the only one who giggles like a ten year old boy at that saying?) – it’s also the day where we say hello to our friend the scale. How did it go? Are you still on speaking terms with Ms. Scale? […]
