- Wooden Skewers (I am grocery store challenged and after spending 10 min. looking for them in Publix, I gave up and got colorful straws in the Birthday supplies isle - they worked out just as well)
- Nestle semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- Graham Cracker crumbs
- Sprinkles! Lots and lots of sprinkles! (I went through about three small bottles of sprinkles - really depends on how many you want to use.)

Here was Baby Boy at school before Trick or treat
Tuesday, September 25, 2012
- You are a fabulous daddy to our children! You plays with them, snuggles with them, take care of them (even changing diapers!), talk to them, and teach them. They are so blessed to have you as their daddy.
- You are a diligent provider. I know that you will never just decide to quit your job because you are tired of working so hard. You makes sure that our needs are met.
- You spends your free time with me and the kids. You don’t run off to spend all your time with “the guys”. You actually enjoy being with us.
- You ARE supportive! You will encourage me and the kids to try something even if we feel we cannot succeed. You make my dreams and goals feel worthy.
- You are curious and adventurous. you love to try new foods, go new places, learn new things and challenge yourself. I love that you are willing and eager to try new things even if it is purely for my own desire. You will always try something once without hesitation before saying you are not interested.

Today -- 2 workouts ... WHAT! yep that is right 2.
First - BodyRock.tv is starting a 30 day Challenge for May. So I did day 1 - Fit Test. It kicked my Booty. Let me interject here about BodyRock. These women are amazing looking. There is no way I will ever be this fit. I can sure try but I can't picture it.
Not bad. My arms were burning during the push ups and dips. This right here is why I know going to my gym is better than home workouts. I can slack off at home.
Workout 2: B'in Burpees. i only had 15 mins left at lunch so I did 1 Round in 4:43
Now all I need to do is figure out how to get better at Clean Eating. I am trying but I am so easily tempted.
***I started this yesterday but I had a sick lil man so this was put on the back burner.

There was no Case of the Mondays around here yesterday. I lit a fire that will not be put out easily. I have found a new obsession... FitVillains. I love her workouts, her videos she posts, everything. MrM keeps asking me what I am doing on the computer -- umm I am planning my next workout.
So, GOTCT is my first workout.
The kids have been keeping me really busy lately so I have been trying to find other ways to continue my love for Crossfit. This way I can do it at home with my kids or alone, but that never happens. Wanted to share this little workout with all you other busy folk out there.
GOTCT - I was looking for a nickname for Tuesday. I kind of like it! There is already Case of the Mondays, Humpday, TGIF.... Now what to do about that Thursday?

|Our view from our 1st Hotel The Intercontinental|
I am trying to get back to normal - working, taking care of the kids, reading emails, cleaning the house, etc but it is hard. I haven't read a blog in almost a month!! It is a Weird sensation. This is my attempt to get back into the swing of things. I took over 2500 pictures in France. All I need to do is edit them so I can share them. Everyone keeps asking me for pictures, so here are a few Mr M sent me my first day back to work.
|Notre Dame - April 7th - closed for Easter Services|
|The Opera - right next to our Hotel.|
|Me at the Eiffel Tower at midnight|
|The Steps of the Sacre Coeur|
|Je Suis Moi - Marathon de Paris - in 5 years this will be me|
I am happy to be back. I missed the kiddos and baby so much. Nanny and Grampy took good care of them while we were gone. Hoping to be more of a familiar face around here. Now I need to get to the GOOD pics from France.

Holly's listing of 30 Crockpot Paleo Meals!! This week I am going to make Slow Cooked Roast Chicken and Gravy. Yum!! I am also going to make Paleo Bison Burgers. I do not know what Bison is BUT I will figure it out before I get to the grocery store.
Breakfast was a huge challenge for me last week. Stay Tuned as I found a recipe for Blueberry Muffins. I will let you know how they turn out.
Have a great week.

paleo diet day 2 dinner, a photo by AdventureOfShaw on Flickr.
So my gym is having a challenge... a Paleo challenge.
First up -- take a picture of myself in a bikini ...ummmm not yet. I got the email last week with all the details for the 30 day challenege. 30 days -- I can do this right??
Day 1 * had all the best intentions in the world. I will be honest here. I brought ALL Paleo freindly foods. Even researched NON egg related beakfast because I did not want to get them from the cafeteria. But I FAILED... yep I said it....FAILED. I ate girlscout cookies and not just one but MANY. Then my daughter came down with the stomach bug SO .... we had soup. That was not Paleo.
My enntire family loved dinner and I cannot wait for Desert.
Here is too the rest of the week!

Here is my day 1. UP ....
I constantly sit here at my desk looking at a computer screen. I have tried to bring in little pieces to make me smile every once in a while when the day becomes to mundane or overwhelming.
So here are my UP's
What does your UP look like?
|One of our Lacrosse Stars|
post? Well I am almost done!! I have found another blogger out there who is making my same look. I have asked her assistance on the neckline. Hoping mine turns out as well as hers. Thanks Mary. I am doing OK on my goal of only buying patterns / fabric for one project at a time. I did however cheat and order a pattern to make this dress next! I am loving Jamie Christina patterns.
Hello Beautiful where she has made this dress at least twice! I am loving the Navy and Lime jersey knit.
Moving On..... Dana has the best boys tutorials. This Friday is Dr. Seuss Day at school. LilMan needs some new shirts and I wanted to play with the 90 minute shirt tutorial. So I took 120 minutes and made a shirt from on old College Bar T-shirt. Appropriate right? I had already used Dana's tutorial to make him Dr Seuss pants.
