Random Wednesday. {I thought it was Thursday...}

I'm linking up with Shanna {btw, if you aren't reading her blog - shame on you. Sadly, I just discovered it but it's quickly turning into one of my favorites. She's so sweet and so real.} for Random Wednesday... and here I was thinking it was Thursday. Nope. Still Wednesday. How is it that some weeks seem to last for months whereas some seem to fly by in the blink of an eye? 

My lessons in food this week... cream cheese is not a good substitute for ricotta cheese in lasagna. Especially if you don't like cream cheese. {why I thought that was a good idea is beyond me} Ground chicken is weird. I really love blueberries - they taste like fruit snacks, kinda. And bean sprouts - in my salad. Pretty dang yummy... they look kinda weird, but I think I like them. Oh... and balsamic vinegar DOES go bad. Even before it's exp date. And when it does... it solidifies. And it's gross.

Sometimes I struggle with not letting the small things get to me. I know I can't be alone on this one - but it's been really plaguing me lately. It's like I'm constantly telling myself to take a deep breath and just let it go. And sometimes, no matter how many times I tell myself that or how many times someone else does. I just can't... I always want to make things right, sometimes giving my pride a swift kick in the bum as a result. And at almost 30 I'm still trying to figure out where my energy is worth putting and where it isn't... I would have thought by now that wouldn't be a question. *sigh*




I'm so ready for spring or just for there to be no snow on the ground that I can barely stand it. I just want to wear cute shoes again... I'm getting tired of my practical snow shoes. Oh, the woes of a shoe obsessed girl.

Let's discuss The Bachelor for a minute, shall we? Why is he keeping Tierra? How can he not see the crazy oozing out of her pores???? I usually have a couple favorites by this point in the show. I like Des. Other than that... no one has really stood out. Dad {yes, my Dad - he's watched the show since season one. ;)} and I were having a serious discussion about Sean's terrible decisions the other night. Just file it under another thing I don't understand these days.... He's so cute, but so dumb.

What are your thoughts on letting go, spring, The Bachelor?!

Happy hump day... although I'm still thinking it's Thursday and someone's pulling a mean trick over me.

hah! If your looking for a sub for ricotta try low fat cottage cheese - I know sounds weird but if you drain it first so it doesn't get your laz too wet it works great - good texture, plus more protein/less fat :)

Loved the post :) thanks for making me smile!

I have actually tried the cottage cheese - and it worked well. But I didn't have any on hand. I only had cream cheese. Lesson learned. ;)

And thank you for stopping by and I'm glad I could make ya smile!

Haha!! SO funny! I popped over from the HelloHue link up and I just have to say I TOTALLY agree - WHY is he keeping Tierra around? Why don't men see crazy like that? Poor guy. ;) Happy weekend!
