Saturday morning, the one morning of the week where I don't have to be out of bed at 6:00am and you guessed it...I was awake at 6:00am.

Just me and my cat.

(ok...even she was sleeping. sigh.)


Together, my cat and I watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show (yes, I admit it. I watch. Even worse? I like.) and caught up on Big Love.

Quality television at it's best.


Bodies of males slowly started to wake up and breakfast was made...eggs scrambled two ways: one pan with sausage and ham and cheddar, another with sausage, peppers, onions, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and a dollop of pesto.

One pan exciting. Another not.

Both yummy, nonetheless.


The two younger boys (just learned my oldest is in Arizona for the weekend...this college thing still takes getting used to. Matteo, update your facebook and make your mama happy!!) went out to play basketball and that guy that I like so much tackled the backyard.

(Me? I took pictures. Cleaned the kitchen. Made a bracelet. Brushed my teeth.)

Let's see...cup o' noodles? Check. Punching bag? Check. Skateboard? Check. Lots of other junk? Check!

First up...the top of the lemon tree walked away.

See ya!

She does look much happier after her haircut, doesn't she?

I was tempted to plant some tomatoes's been in the high 70's (sorry, Chicago peeps...send me some snow!) and even the low 80's, but I am sure winter is not done with us.

But I am still tempted.

As for the rest of today...a trip to Trader Joe's is necessary (we. need. wine.) and I need to figure out dinner. Yesterday I took out a big package of stew meat and put it in the sink to thaw for a bit...and left it there all night long.


So plan B...who knows.

Want to invite us over?



  1. AAAAAA!!!!what did you think of the reunion show? I was a little disappointed. Not as dramatic as I thought it would be. It looks like the second part is going to be much better.
    I want your lemon tree!!!! Mine died last year out on the deck (Maybe because someone forgot to water it in the middle of July/August heat wave)
    You could have gone and had dinner with us--we went out for steak to celebrate our 17th anniversary then we shared bread pudding---yum, yum, and yum!!!!!

  2. We would've had you over!!! We need to see you! xoxo

  3. I would love to hear your Uncle John's comments on your breakfast. They look great to me!!! :-)

  4. We'll send some snow later this week. We'll see if a possible big storm will hit us or not. I'm really hoping for one snow day this year.
