A few weeks ago, it hit me: our sun porch was ugly. BEFORE: Ok, it wasn’t horrible to look at, but it wasn’t reflective of our style or the rest of our house. And what style it did have was just plain old boring. Clearly, our sun porch lacked style, but it was also a space that we never used because it wasn’t welcoming or comfortable. Basically, our sun porch needed a redesign, so here’s…

The other day, Mal and I were both in bad moods (oh, Gemini mood swings), which, of course, is never a good time. Usually, when one of us is in a crappy mood, the other person helps them snap out of it, but Mal and I kept annoying each other and making little snide comments. We both knew we were being crankypants for no reason, but we just couldn’t get ourselves out of it. Eventually,…

Good morning! Happy Monday! It’s Mal last day of school today, so summer begins for us at 2:05 PM when the last bell of the year rings. I know the official first day of summer is Wednesday, but summer starts for me as soon as Mal is out of school. I love having him around during the day; we have a lot of fun together. With summer finally here, I decided to create a Summer…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MAL!!! [Image by my very talented friend Jon, who meets celebrities like Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. He actually hung out with them over the weekend. No big deal.] I’m not sure who’s more excited about Mal’s 30th birthday today””him or me!

Noun 1. snacker – someone who eats lightly or eats snacks between meals Confession: I don’t show all of the snacks I eat on Carrots ”˜N’ Cake. I try to photograph most of what goes into my mouth, but it’s not always possible. Sometimes my camera isn’t handy, sometimes I’m enjoying the moment and don’t want to ruin it with a photo, and sometimes I’m just lazy. So, what you see on CNC isn’t always…

No More Excuses! Motivational Quotes to Get Your Butt In Gear! I had a little pity party for myself this morning. I got pissed. I cried. And then I got over it. Life’s not fair. Accept and adjust. My goal was to return to CrossFit today to do WOD 12.2, but, sadly, I’m still in no condition to do any sort of strenuous exercise, which means I’ll probably take a DNF on this workout. Obviously, I’m bummed, but I’m…
