Spring cleaning

First of all, thank you so much to everyone who left feedback for me! I really appreciate your honesty.
After thinking about it all day, here's where I stand with it.

First of all, I absolutely love blogging, and I rarely find that I don't have the time for it, so I apologize if my last post made it sound that way. Usually what happens is on a mundane, run of the mill sort of day, I sit on the couch with blogger open, and blank on what to write. Then the minutes pass by, and before I know it it's 11pm and I need to get to bed with no post written. That's when I stress about the time!
However, it sounds like the majority of you like to read that I too have mundane days where I go to work, go to the gym, make dinner, watch some tv, and go to bed. If that's what you're cool with reading, then I'm going to keep posting on even those boring days! And it sounds like you enjoy seeing what I have for dinner because it gives you some ideas. 
As far as giveaways and product reviews, we're pretty much in the same opinion there. I'm not fond of them, and it sounds like you all would read my blog regardless. And I don't need to bring readers here who only read for free stuff. If I find products I love and believe in, I'll continue to share them. And if say, Stonyfield Farms wanted to do a giveaway, I'd be all for that... but I'll continue to turn down giveaways for things I don't personally use. 

Lastly, I just want to say how much I appreciate all of you. I have a hard time walking the line between blogging for myself, and blogging for an audience.... but everyone that reads and comments is so kind, supportive, and friendly. And when you tell me that you take what I write and use it as motivation, it really touches me. I'll say it until I'm blue in the face, the bloggosphere is really a wonderful place! 

Ok, enough of the logistics... and mushy stuff... onto my day!

As I said, tonight was a Bite Club event. It was really fun, great company, and the food was wonderful. I don't like seafood, but I tried a few bites here and there. I didn't eat much, and wanted so badly to stop on my way home and grab some fast food, but I knew even if I had good intentions I'd falter and order something bad, so I waited until I got home and had yogurt, pineapple, and some snap peas. I have no clue what my calories were like for the evening, but I don't feel full, so that's probably a good sign! 
I didn't get to go to Body Pump, sad, but tomorrow is spinning and I'm excited for that! 

Our carpets were steam cleaned today, and they look fantastic. Hopefully Char and Belle can keep their accidents to a minimum :) I'm going to really focus on some spring cleaning this weekend, from the ground up, so the carpets were #1 on the list! 

ok, I'm spent, time for bed, but first here's some Bite Club....
The oyster bar... eek! 
Lou and his/my friends
Pumpkin, Charlotte and Belle's babysitter, Fawn, came to the event! (right)

My favorite part of the evening, key lime meringue pie and key lime cheesecake. 


  1. My husband and I had appetizers on the patio at The Fish Co last night. I saw your group in the back.

  2. i loved all 3 comments. haha. also regarding yesterdays post, guess i should be commenting there, but i am not cuz well too late... blog daily, love reading about your life, it's more exciting than mine. haha. I might try to do these daily updates too, I am realizing life is slipping from me and I don't even remember what I am doing day to day. it's kinda ridiculous.

  3. Mmmmm...looks good!
