Miscellaney Monday

Randomness once a week appears to be my thing right now.... I really am making an effort to be just can't see it yet ;)

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one} sweet tooth.
i've been having a craving for ice cream lately. so the other day when we went grocery shopping i bought now let me introduce you to the best thing since sliced bread: ben & jerry's cheesecake brownie and b&j's cake batter. oh. my. goodness! where have they been all my life??? they took my two favorite desserts on earth and made them into ice cream. geniuses i tell you. p.s. july is national ice cream month - hooray!
{two} ti amo italia.
i've also been eating italian food like there is only a finite amount left and it's up to me to consume it all. i don't know what's come over me but its seriously all i want...lasagna, pasta with pesto, pizza, spaghetti, eggplant parmigania....sooooo gooooood! p.s. thanks giada for all of your great and delicious recipes, i love your show and your creations even more :)
{three} dog days of summer.
i thought dogs were supposed to be slightly more lazy during the summer because of the heat... but apparently not. and if that is true, my dogs have decided not to follow suit. they have been crazy, rambunctions, literally going in circles lately! even super long walks don't slow these guys down...if anyone has any tips on how to create a calmer dog, please let me know :)
{four} out with the old, in with the new...
work out routine that is :) some where, at some point in my twenty-three and a half years i did a doosey on my knee and now it's hard to run longer than 5 miles. so instead of pushing and pushing (and probably hurting it more than helping it) i've decided to do something new. goodbye long runs and hello yoga mixed with low impact cardio and circuit training. i've also found that i enjoy these activities a lot more and don't feel like i'm punishing myself when i work out - which equals a better experience for this girl
{five} out of the loop.
i haven't had cable/satellite tv for almost three months now and i feel very "out of the loop" on the goings on in this country (and in the world) instead of breaking down and getting cable, i'm going to spend a little less time midlessly floating about the internet and a little more getting current on the happenings in the globe. but with so many news sources these days, it's hard to decide which ones are trustworthy and unbiased, so again i pose y'all a question: does anyone have any fave news sites that are awesome? which ones should i stay away from? i appreciate y'alls help! :)
{six} blog friends are real friends.
i have had the opportunity to start forging some really great friendships through blogging. it's something i never expected and it is a very happy surprise. so i want to thank all of you for sharing a little bit of yourself and your friendship with me :) it's been wonderful and a blessing and i am excited to see where these new roads of friendship take me.

Hope everyone has a great week! And as far as big/great/fun/new news that I talked about last week, I know I've put it off again but I want to get it set in stone before I say anything, hopefully by the end of the week!


  1. I crave ice cream all the time! I could probably eat it every day :)

  2. yay I'm excited you got a great new workout routine. Sometimes it's just good to mix it up--even without an injury : )
    I agree about #6-I never thought I would become 'friends' w/ bloggers, but it's so fun : )

  3. I totally crave ice cream...just had some...Its a very rainy day here so blog hopping is the perfect activity. Hope you will visit me...I have a great giveaway that I am drawing for Sunday.
