Mini Makeover

To celebrate a mini milestone in my journey back to happy, better Beth I decided a major change to my hair was the answer! I haven't done anything drastic in a while so I thought on it for a bit and then scheduled my appointment... cut AND color. After 2 hours I am pretty happy with the final product...

One Down...

Well I have made it one week. And as silly as it might seem, I am choosing to celebrate the little things. My new normal is going alright, for starters I am putting that gym membership to work :) Better to be on an eliptical watching t.v. than sitting at home on the couch doing the same thing. I have been working on my "to do" list and so far it is full of exciting things like cleaning, purging closets of clothes etc. Once these are done I will move on to the next thing, what that is I haven't decided, but it will come soon enough. I think that keeping in motion is best, a nice steady pace. No need to sprint ( I have never been a runner anyways). I want to take my time to make sure my next move is the best one I could make for myself.

In the blink of an eye things can change.  They can go from normal and routine, to up-dumped in a heartbeat! Those have been the feelings this week as my life has gone topsy turvy. After 2 & 1/2 years with one person, my relationship is over. A week ago the light switch got flipped off and everything changed.   Everything has felt so fast, decision made, he looks for a place to live, I start bringing home boxes... he packs... I pack and tomorrow it will be over. I am now officially 30 and single.

Photo Fun

On the recommendation of my friend Ivy I downloaded an app for my iPhone called "Hipstamatic" which, when you take a picture, gives it a cool old school feel/finish. On New Year's Eve I helped celebrate Evan's first birthday with Angie, Steve and family. I brought my nice camera and didn't get any pictures I was crazy about. Wouldn't you know that I pulled out my phone to document the gigantic cupcake that Angie made for Evan's birthday and that one is very cool (and shareable)! Go figure...

So here is a picture of the cake taken with my phone, nothing fancy :)

And here is the same shot taken with the Hipstamatic app!

And on a separate note how classic that I only have pictures of food from the birthday to share, no people pictures, present pictures, candid shots, action shots, sleeping shots, eating shots... NOTHING! Hopefully after I take a class or two to learn how to use my camera that will change. Stay tuned!

One adorable Mini + awesome sheep costume + great friends = a fantastic first Halloween!

A Few Food Adventures

I know, I know another post about food, but at least these were good experiments in cooking.  I read an article on Yahoo about getting kids to eat more vegetables. And since I don't have kids, this seemed like a good way to sneak some past myself! This recipe caught my eye, Potato Nachos. All I could think were, Potato Skins with bacon bits, sour cream, cheese... YUM! Well they were pretty close, but according to the article subbing potato wedges for chips was a healthier option. Angie and I made them one night when I was over hanging out with her and Mini. They were fantastic...

My other mini cooking adventure was courtesy of a recipe from Whole Foods Website. Nothing too "granola" in this one, so I thought I would give it a try. Cheesy Lasagna Rolls souned very safe. I love Lasagna, but the time it has to cook is such a pain! These little guys only have to bake for 25 min! Each roll had ricotta, sauce, mushrooms, olives, sausage and zucchini. Fill it, roll it, bake it, EAT IT. Highly recommend...

Better Late than Never

I have been M.I.A from blogging. Not posting for over a year, does that count as M.I.A??  Part of my lack of posting has been a feeling of not having much to post about.  Haven't taken any trips or vacations, still live in the same place, same job, life is on cruise control right now!! So hopefully in the near future I will have some fun things to post about, an adventure or two that will be "blog worthy". So once again little blog I will try to pay more attention to you and post more often, exciting or not!
