random Wednesday brain dump

Last week we had quite a bit of sunny weather.  While I was working from home one morning, I left the back door open and the puppies went out and laid around in the sunshine.
After realizing how happy they were, we decided to put in a dog door.  We can gate them into the kitchen/back part of the house so they can't get into too much trouble, and they can go outside whenever they want to.  As soon as they figure out how to get through the door...
Completely unrelated, I've been worried that I have a bit of a sugar addiction lately.  Not so much candy and crap, but more the evil secret sugars that everybody hates on for sneaking into all of your food.  This weekend, I discovered how to break that addiction.  I made this for Easter (no, my hair was not combed but at least it was clean, thanks).
I had less than one slice and three days later, still have absolutely no interest in eating any sugar or a peep or really anything but green vegetables.  Maybe ever again.

In other random shit that really doesn't matter, the poet has returned to running after the five-month break he took following his big marathon PR.  We did our long runs together Sunday morning.  For the first time since he started running, I get to be faster than him.  I'm sure it won't last longer than another week or so while he gets his heart rate back under control but it's nice to not be smoked by my tall, lanky, runs-with-perfect-form-and-never-gets-injured husband for once.
Oh, and we painted the living room.
Happy Wednesday!


  1. that peep cake is diabetes on a plate! Wow, yea I think I'd be done with sugar for a while too. lol. and dog doors are the best thing ever. We used a sliding glass door insert that let the dog come and go as she pleased, and that made everyone happy.

  2. I like that your living room color is almost the same as your living room color in VA =)

  3. Happy Wednesday! That cake looks deadly! :-) I'm loving our weather here lately too, but wind is coming...

  4. I need more photos of the casa please. You look like you lost weight. Is this true?

  5. Ooooh, is that a blue-gray? Does it have a name? I am stalking paint colors for our hallway right now.

  6. That cake is awesome looking!

    Horray for the sunny weather!

  7. The color turned out great! And I'm so jelly of your tank top running weather. WHYYYY didn't I wait another weekend? I should just move there. And eat at Mod Market everyday. And snuggle Molly.


    C'mon May!

  8. Hahaha, that video is adorable!

  9. Love the Graham video. He reminds me so much of my Delilah in their personalities.
    I would also like to know which paint color you went with!! Your living room looks so calming.

  10. Great video. And nice living room!

  11. I am faster than my pretty darn old husband ... in distance of 400 yards or less, if I sprint the last piece.

  12. I can taste the sugar in that cake from here. ;-)
    Awesome color in the room! What did you use? We're getting ready to paint and I've got six samples of grey on the walls... some more blue than grey... one actually turned out lavender. Hmmm... want grey.

  13. Katie! I assure you that though I've been silent and distracted, I've been diligently following you through IM training, moving across the country and life with your beautiful pups. So good to hear from you :)

    LOVE the color you chose. So calm and relaxing. My hubby also has the perfect feet/stride for running and yet refuses to get into the sport. It kills me!
