Friday Randomness

My mind is all over the place today so most likely this post will be, too.
  • I haven't had fast food all week, and it's been surprisingly easy! Sure, a couple of nights I've had cereal for dinner, but I have NOT had anything from a drive thru.
  • Subway totally doesn't count as fast food, beeteedubs. No drive thru and MUCH healthier than McD's and the like. Hubster agrees with me.
  • To celebrate my successful No Fast Food week we had Subway for lunch today.
  • I just noticed that the first three items on my list are regarding food. I should also mention that I have joined Weight Watchers. My relationship with food is ridiculous.
  • I'm going to choreograph a musical for a high school, tonight is the first night I'll be working with the kiddos. Looking forward to it! My creativity has been feeling stifled lately so this outlet is much needed.
  • Ronan visited with the Easter Bunny last weekend. Take a gander at this cuteness!
    Gah, I could just eat him!
  • A blogger whose writing I enjoy so much has a new book out. Kelle Hampton of Enjoying the Small Things wrote her memoir, titled Bloom, and it is beautiful. Can't put it down.
  • This is going to be a tough weekend, with a memorial for my sister-in-law and an estate sale for my dad. Having a tough time moving past some of this grief because I haven't been able to truly move on. I have had it easy, though. My uncle has been amazing, organizing the entire estate sale (with help from some other family members) and taking on so much responsibility. If it weren't for him I'm sure I'd be much worse off.
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are still a craving. Wonder how many points those are... 
Happy Friday!

Would you like fries with that?

Over the past couple of months, this Little Home Family has been through quite a bit of shiz. To be honest, I still have a tough time wrapping my mind around all that has happened.

My daddy died.

My sister in law died.

Cancer is a bitch.

While each of these events deserve their own posts, I'm not really in a place (mentally) where I can talk without turning into a crying, snotty, splotchy-faced mess. Those posts will come soon enough, though.

The majority of my time in the past two months has been spent away from home, either in my car driving up and down I-5 or sitting in a hospital/hospice room. This means that there has been very little use of the stove in our little abode. In fact, fast food has become a staple, to the point that meal time isn't fun. Very often we're both saying "Ugh, I'm so sick of fast food!", and we are.

Starting Monday, NO MORE FAST FOOD. I mean it. I'm going to see if I can avoid the siren call of the drive-thru window for a month, save for the occasional diet coke (those totally don't count).

Other than benefiting my health and my bank account, I need incentive for this to happen. So I'm totally going to reward myself when I make it a month without succumbing to fast food. My reward shall be...

A pedicure. I haven't had one since I was pregnant and DESPERATELY need one. So, come May 6th, this little lady will be soaking her tootsies and picking out the perfect color.

What color best compliments pasty white legs, I wonder...
