The Unedible & Edible

I have no idea if I spelled that word correctly or not..Ha! I sometimes think of myself as a pretty decent writer, but there are some words in the English language I CAN'T PRONOUNCE. OR SPELL for the LIFE of me!
Some examples: Preliminary. Specific. Receiving. Niche. Yeaaaaaaaaa... anyone else feel like English is like a second language??

Well nothing too much as been up lately for us.. we have just been hanging out! I did get a pretty decent tan laying outside by the pool! It was nice! I know, I shouldn't be in the sun, but something about the lawn just calls to me..

Tonight I spent some time on the yoga mat and in the kitchen! Shocking, I know! But I have been practicing my hard yoga poses which are getting REALLY easy with all the Pilates I've been doing, so it's pretty cool! Here's what I made in the kitchen-

Mexican Casserole! It was a mix I bought a while back - and I've been wanting to try it, now here's my chance! It was pretty cool! I'll let the pics do the talking!




As you can see it was pretty simple to make! And it was a little bit on the spicy side which I loved! I packed up the rest of it for leftovers for the week too. Yay! No more wondering what to eat for lunch or dinner : )

I also made something that WASN'T tasty at all! I wanted to whip up Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter cookies. What I ended up with was lumps of clumpy sticky burnt balls of crap. Look!


These ended up in the trash. So sad! I won't share what I did with the recipe, just so you guys don't end up trying to make them :(

Well- I also did my hard yoga right? Yea! Here are a couple of the poses I did- I know you all want to see pictures of me in my sweatpants on my yoga mat... even better that I am in the TV room. Which is completely ghetto! Haha! You'll even see that hanging on the wall is my little sister throughout the years. My mom did that for all of our high school graduations- and even though she graduated 5 years ago... it's STILL hanging on the wall. Go figure!



Interesting no??? Not too shabby I think! I have to admit, I do really like my shoulders in that last picture! I LIKE my shoulders! They look pretty strong!

Well, I'm off to bed now! I'm wiped!

What do you like about yourself?? And what words do you not know how to spell/ pronounce??

  1. Nice move! Impressive!

    The pasta looks awesome, I never use those noodles but they look cool!

    I can't say statistics or gift certificate. Both of those I have to say very slowly or it just doesn't come out right. I talk very fast too so that doesn't help!

  3. Ground turkey is the truth! I use it to cook everything from spaghetti to meat loaf. Some people think it's nasty but I grew up on it and it's much better for your health so.

  7. I am so jealous of your yoga moves! I used to be able to do things like that when I did a daily practice in high school, but after I graduated it all went out the window. My university days were stressful and busy and I neglected yoga and now I'm back to doing it a few times a week, but definitely not able to do the things I used to. I miss it. You are pretty amazing.

    I'm sorry about your cookies! That's too bad. I hate when things don't turn out the way I want them to.

    I do feel like English is a second language sometimes...I am actually not bad with my vocab and spelling, I was always okay with English...I wanted to be a writer...but sometimes really pretentious people use big words and I feel stupid. Which is silly..but it happens!

  8. When I grow up (it doesn't matter I am way older than you!) I hope to be as flexible as you!

    Hope you and peanut had a great weekend!

  9. I'm a yoga instructor and I cant even do those poses! All my years over exercise gave me a very tight body, I cant even reach my toes!
    I think I'm pretty funny, I know I hate people that say that about themselves and they usually ARENT funny, but i'm shameless. Maybe its kind of dark humor, but I think I'm funnier than the average twenty something year old woman.
    I know how to pronounce it, but I think its funny the way people pronounce that Greek yogurt, Fage, and they call it "Fag" when its pronounce "Fah-yeh". a fag is a cigarette, not a yogurt! I call it "Fay-j" simply cause I dont like saying "Fah-yeh". I know, I m so awkward.
