Look who went back to bed this morning!
Murphy and I went for a 30 minute walk around the neighborhood this morning and now he’s totally spent. He’s actually still sleeping in our bed. I’m telling ya, Murphy lives a very nice pug life.
I really wanted to curl up in bed with Murph, but work calls this morning. I didn’t get much done yesterday because I was running around all day, so today is all about catching up.
I started my day with a big bowl of oatmeal, which was half Mad Hectic oatmeal and half old-fashioned oats. As much as I love the Mad Hectic oatmeal, I find that if I mix it with regular oats, it holds off my hunger for much longer.
I also added chia seeds and two scoops of peanut butter to the mix.
No iced coffee with breakfast because we’re all out. 😕 I’m brewing some hot coffee right now though. I wonder if I can make the switch for today?
So, guess what?! One of my recipes is featured in a new downloadable ebook put out by Nick at Macheesemo! So cool! 😀
The 200-page book is a compilation of stories, recipes, and tips from 55 food bloggers. Each of us has a chapter and a story included. Mine is about my husband and one of his favorite recipes. The book is priced at $19, but this week, it’s only $14 (until June 1st).
Here’s where you can learn more and purchase the ebook: 55 Knives. Nick also includes some interesting FAQs about the project.

How is it that animals always make sleeping look like so much fun?! Whenever I foster a cat for the MSPCA I always end up taking more naps (lol).
Murphy is so freaking cute!
And I am the kind of person who is committed to living the best life possible. 🙂
i’m the kind of person who always tries to see the positive side of things. worrying, stressing out and getting angry is too overwhelming to me! i find it exhausting and life is much more pleasant when you’re happy! 🙂 your blog brings me a daily dose of happiness (especially w/ the adorable murphy pics).
Let’s see … I’m the kind of person who always struggles with eating the right thing … who always looks for the funny side of life … can’t think of a third.
Congratulations on being a part of the book!

That must be why I’m a librarian. 😀

Murphy looks so comfy, I wish my pug was snoozin’ instead of terrozing my apartment!
Awww little Murphy!
I’m the kind of person who goes after what I want in life!

hey tina i love your blog!! when u don’t post dinner does that mean u were taking a blogging break or u don’t eat dinner? thanks!
@Jen: I never skips meals, so if I don’t post it’s because I’m taking a break or don’t have time.
I’m the type of person who always…enjoys a good book and a glass of red wine.
I am the kind of person who can always put myself in the other person’s shoes and see their side. I guess I am trying to say I have the gift of empathy. It makes me too emotional and sensitive sometimes but I try to remember it is a gift.
I’m the kind of person who is always working. I don’t stop because my job doesn’t get done in just my office hours. And I work weekends too. I enjoy it though so I don’t mind.
… can’t slow down and rest. Even with a 103 degree fever yesterday, I was still thinking about how to cross things off of my never ending To Do List!
I’m the kind of person who… (echoing what others have said)
-can never sit down, take a rest, just do nothing
-never skips a meal
-always notices how other react to a situation/conversation bc I’m worried about everyone’s feelings
….who plans out what to eat at every meal! it’s kinda weird to most people 🙂
goes with the flow and enjoys life.
I’m the kind of person who always thinks about the worst possible thing that could happen.
I love all your pictures of Murphy. He brightens up my day.. so adorable. I can’t wait for the day I get my own little pup! I’m the kind of person who always rather laugh than cry.
I’m the kind of person who always plans out her whole week ahead of time. I put my stack together for each day, lay out my workout clothes and work clothes for every day. I’m OCD.
I’m the kind of person who always enjoys a hot bowl of of oatmeal in the morning with my CnC.
Murphy is adorable. My dogs do the same thing its crazy how sleepy they always seem. Your bed looks super comfortable as well.
I’m the kind of person who over analyzes everything – BAD TRAIT
