Rollercoasters and fields of weeds....

Ok, I'm starting this post with a motivational picture for myself. I'm posting it first so that when I open my blog every morning to listen to my playlist as we clean, i can be reminded of what I wanna look like by the fall.....my girl Latetia...she's been my image idol since I was 18! Ok, and now my reason for coming in here to blog...other than the fact that my true desire right now is to go jump on the trampoline but it's too windy. Nigella Lawson! I know I have to have a few Food Network junkies like myself. There are 154 that view my blog...please, PLEASE say that one of you is an addict. ok, so I think thanks to facebook, i really only have 3 viewers, but still, someone. My subject is Nigella today simply because, she's hot. She always makes something with chocolate (unlike that alcholic Sandra Lee) and she always licks her fingers, and shows herself sneaking into her fridge late at night. I mean come on...she's pretty much ALL of us, but just willing to show it on TV! I do think however, that she's packed on a good 30 or so in the last few years. She's always been vulumptious, but she's seeming a bit pudgy....but still incredibly HOT. I just watched her make rocky road bars for her kid's (and their friend's) picnic that was at some beautiful pasture in England I'm sure. But my gosh, not sure if I wanted to go eat a bar of chocolate or call Jase home for a minute...IYKWIM (is that right?) . Anyway, just thought since I gave a blog shout out to my girl Ina, I'd also mention my other kitchen mentor, Nigella....
Top is now, bottom is a few years ago.

I ditched church this week. There, it's out there. Ditched. no REAL reason, I just was really tired ( baby doesn't sleep through the night) and well, it's a special time for me IYKWIM (right?). Plus Jase had an early morning meeting that didn't end til 25 minutes before church time, so i spent my time getting the 4 litle ones ready and there really wasn't enough time for me to get ready....justification done.
So when church was over, i wanted to take pictures of the kids in their Easter best....but i didn't want to wait til good lighting because, well, you know, their outfits would be brown. And i'm too lazy to take em off and put em back on....so this is what we got with noon day sun.....


Needless to say, we'll be doing a reshoot with better lighting. haha. notice the chicky being squeezed in the bottom picture and the other chicky running away as fast as he can. haha.

I love the easter outfits! So darn cute!
Do you really have 154 readers on your blog? I can't send out more than 96 invites. How did you get more than 100? Maybe mines just retarded. Or maybe I'm the retard. Ha.

Kristal, Ina and Nigella are my two favorite too!!!! And I also cannot stand Sandra Lee. Her tablescapes are just completely unrealistic if you have 4 kids.

And not to be mean, but have you seen Nigella's husband? Just wondering how he ended up with her.....I know I know, I'm mean.

Are you guys coming to Dallas for Wicked??

Adorable kiddos as always!

I love the Easter outfits...I have to say Pearce (spelling right?) is a friggin cute baby. I love those cheeks and that smile.

Oh holy cow Kristal, I am dying LOL'ing at your Sandra Lee comment. She's totally an alkie! Who does that? And if anyone does, they don't make "tablescapes" like that at the same time! Anyway.
Um, your kids' Easter pics are so adorable, they look awesome. Killin' me! I haven't even dressed my kids up in their Easter outfits yet to take pictures, so I'm feeling so lame now. Love them!
