Makeup Stuff

So, I have two recent makeup purchases to share with you guys!  I picked up Revlon PhotoReady Foundation at Walgreens today for $8.49 (40% off sale on all Revlon products!)and I received the Rock&Republic lipgloss that I ordered about a week ago, for $1.89 ($25 dollar sign up credit, plus a 10% discount code that…

Asian-Inspired Pot Stickers

If you know me well, it shouldn’t be any secret to you that I LOVE Asian food. Too bad that living in Arkansas severely limits the quantity of reasonably priced cuisine available to me, I find myself experimenting with Asian flavors, hoping to find the magic combination that will allow me to stay away from high fat, MSG-filled buffets forever!

My first experience with pot stickers was (I’m ashamed to say) in a Lean Cuisine Frozen meal, years ago. They were actually pretty awesome, so I knew that if I could find some freshly made, I would be in for a treat! I never did find those fresh pot stickers that I was looking for, so guess what? I made my own! I did a little searching around online and found several recipes, but none that really, really stood out to me. Most called for steaming in water, and then dipping into a “sauce” of soy sauce and rice vinegar. Sounds bland to me! So, I figured I would just wing it, and put it what I felt like putting in. The results were amazing.

(this recipe was originally posted on my food blog, which I am discontinuing.

Potpourri

The mini-gym at my apartment complex has a brand new elliptical machine! I am ALL.OVER.THAT! Izzy’s little teeth are FINALLY cutting through! Two little rice grains, at the bottom! Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii is really, really fun! Hancocks is having a pattern sale, that started yesterday. 0.89 apiece. Oh yes, I will be…

Throwing a Fit

Can someone explain to me how Izzy learned to throw a fit?  She’s like, an expert at it, at 9 months old.  She throws her head back and falls, no matter where she is.  It’s actually pretty funny when she tries to do it when she’s down on her knees, because she can’t bend back…

Being Ms. Jones: Week 39

This week, Izzy was able to spend some time outside, and get down in the grass.  We had rain for about a whole week, so it was nice to have such a beautiful day, and let Izzy have some fun in the sun!

Maniac…

Would you like to know what I’ve realized about myself?  I’m going to tell you, even if you don’t.  I am a social media addict.  I can admit this.  I check my twitter, my email, my facebook, my google reader, you name it, obsessively.  This must stop.  Not now, but like….right now.  I already have…

Mornings

I’ve decide that I need to do something to make my mornings more enjoyable.  As it stands now, I drag myself out of bed whenever Izzy decides she’s ready to be up and about (which is normally about 7am).  Fix her a bottle, change her diaper.  Straighten up the living room.  Fix breakfast while trying…

Cutting the Fluff, week 1

So, last week wasn’t what I would consider “great”  in terms of loosing any extra fluff, but I wouldn’t consider it a fail either.  I worked out 3 times, burning a total of 1425 calories.  Which is good.  But when I think about the additional 1000 calories that I could have burned had I just…

Clothes

This is all of Izzy’s clothes.  On a queen bed, for reference.  This girl has SO MUCH STUFF. I sorted everything out, threw away anything that was too stained to be salvaged.  Put away anything that was too small, but still in good condition.  Going into cooler weather, Izzy has: 13 pairs of pants (5…
