Day 293 - Surprise, Surprise!

We got randomly picked for an extensive foster home review by the state governing board that monitors foster care agencies.  Lucky us!!  Nothing too hard, but completely unrealistic.  This lock is on our DOUBLE locked medicines with the prescription ones in their own little locked box within this one, then the over-the-counter ones THEN on top in the tray are the topical meds.  Oh, don't forget the locked bag in the fridge for psychotropic medications.....of we have none.  Fun times.  We passed with flying colors.

Day 287 - Breath of Fresh Air

Anywhere but Texas people usually opened their windows in summer to get some fresh air.  Our summer was soooo hot as has been all of September and most of October, however this week has proven that fall, is in deed, here.....or at least on its way with highs in the 60's.  Heaven.

Day 286 - Fall Gathering

Had some Bible Study girls over for dinner and made this Gingerbread Cake & Pumpkin Trifle.  So fall-ish.

Day 287 - Let's Get Physical

PP thought this would be cute for me.  He and PG are into Lego Mini-figs (short for mini-figurines) and buy them every now and then.  They aren't cheap for the small amount of plastic that comes out of the package.  This morning PP told me that he thought I'd appreciate this and to remind me the 80's. I also love it because when I was in elementary school I wanted to grow up and be an aerobics instructor so I could wear cute tights, leg warmers and those white Reeboks* with the double velcro straps.  Pretty lofty goal since I was the most un-athletic child known to man.  Seems as though that goal didn't work out. ; )

I remember when Olivia Newton John came up with her song "Let's Get Physical" and all the moms were in an uproar not letting us listen to it.  The video was of fat guys all decked out in workout clothes along with Miss O in her get up and they were supposed to be talking about exercise.

Yeah, right.

The whole song was about getting physical with your love interest.....if you know what I mean.

Day 283 - New Found Goodness!!

PP and I have gained so much yucky weight and are going to be doing a juicing reboot this week to kick-start our clean eating again.  Can't buy the juicer until tomorrow so this morning we headed out to Jamba*Juice with the girls since they were out of school for Columbus Day (do we really need them home for that? Just askin'. ).  We fell in love with this place that we pass multiple times a week yet have never been through the doors!! Super healthy and yummy.  Tried steel-cut oats and will not ever want regular flattened oatmeal again.  I've read about how much healthier steel-cut oats are than oatmeal, but have not made the effort to buy and cook them.  Totally different texture and I really liked them.  Seemed like I was having rice or tapioca instead of oatmeal.  I could eat rice daily and be happy so this is a great new discovery along with the super healthy smoothie I had complete with spirulina and all!

Isn't that jack-o-lantern planter just the CUTEST???!!! My sister-in-law got that for us and it is just so flippin' adorable and perfect in THAT particular spot in our coming-back-to-life-from-the-dead-summer flower beds!

Day 280 - Poppin' Hot Pink

This pic is actually from last night, but all PG's hot pink gifts were way too cute to not include at least one on the 365.

Day 277 - Good for Another Year

I had every intention of making some cute new frame or something great like I've seen on Pinterest*, but alas, I'm using the same wreath from the past few years.  It's still pretty.

Day 276 - Oh How This Pic Has a Story

I'll post on this little baby in a few days.  Maybe tomorrow.  It's a beautiful fall color.  We have a three year old in the house.  Who doesn't obey. And thinks she's 23.

Day 275 - Lose Your Pearly Whites?

This is just a suggestion from my photo editing experience......go buy some kind of tooth whitener.  They are cheap now.  Do it.  You'll feel better about yourself and your pictures will be prettier.  We all need it.  There has not been one picture of an adult that I have not had to tweak the white level on the teeth.  Do it.  It'll be good for you. Cheese. ; )
