10 Random Tidbits 2.26.15

Tidbit 1: I’m starting to love these tidbit posts. They’re a great way for me to dump all of my random thoughts without trying to come up with a catchy, cohesive story.
Tidbit 2: This morning we woke up to another {thin} blanket of snow. I loved snow days as a kid because I didn’t have to go to school. I loved snow days as a teacher because I didn’t have to go to work. And now I love snow days as a mom because Little Miss is completely enamored by the magical white fluff. She could watch it fall all day.
Tidbit 3: I can’t remember the last time I made a smoothie and to be honest, the last few times we used our blender was to make milkshakes and margaritas {not at the same time}. But after clicking on all of the links in this article, 9 High-Protein Smoothies That Taste Like a Milkshake, I feel the need to buy all of the ingredients to make all of the smoothies. ASAP.

Tidbit 4: I mentioned last week that we’ve started to look at houses. I’ve watched House Hunters for years and always got a good laugh at the buyers with the unrealistic list of expectations… But I’ve realized that I am that person, too.
Tidbit 5: I’ve also realized that an ugly kitchen is a deal-breaker. The house could have {almost} everything on our list, but if the kitchen needs a lot of TLC I’m moving onto the next property. Kitchens are wicked expensive to remodel and I really don’t want to live through months of construction without a working kitchen, especially with an infant.
Tidbit 6: I tried a LUNA Protein Lemon Vanilla bar for the first time yesterday and I’ll give it a thumbs up… Unlike the chips I ate yesterday which get two thumbs down. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Peanut Butter are still my favorite flavors because they remind me of a candy bar without the guilt.

Tidbit 7: I popped a few potatoes into the oven for dinner and between feeding Little Miss, cleaning up her, lunch mess, a dog that needed to go outside, and making lunch for myself, I totally forgot about them. Thank goodness sweet potatoes smell so delicious when they’re roasting, otherwise, there’s a good chance that I would have forgotten them until dinner.
Tidbit 8: I’ve been doing an awesome job with sticking to my half marathon training plan this week, today being an exception. Little Miss refused to nap so I wore her in the carrier for the majority of the day so today’s run is being pushed to tomorrow. Maybe I’ll sneak it in before she even wakes up… That’s ambitious.
Tidbit 9: Ryan and I are hosting a St. Patty’s Day Potluck where everyone is asked to bring a dish and their favorite 6-pack of beer to share. What’s your favorite Irish-inspired dish?
