Spoiler Alert: Spaghetti Sauce All Over the Floor

How was your Monday?  Mine was good.  I just walked in the door from a successful Lowe's trip.  I finally chose a paint color and I had to pick up some stain and varnish.  I had hoped to be done with the piano by now, but it was a full weekend, and I just didn't get to it.  Hopefully, I can get to it this week.  I can't wait to get it in the house and out of the garage!  Rosie is beside herself with excitement.  She asks me everyday about when the piano will be ready!  Soon, Rosie, soon!

I went to Zumba on Sunday and tonight.  It's feeling really good to get back to it, but, it's also a huge reminder of how long it's been.  Whew, it is HARD!   I have also started doing a video that my friend, Shelley, recommended.  Well, she didn't recommend the video, she recommended the class, but we don't have it around these parts.  It's called Pure Barre.  It's a mix of ballet, pilates and yoga.  It's very hard and is supposed to be one of the most effective exercises to change your body.  I've only done it a hand full of times, but so far, so good.  I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm pretty excited about my Creative Pay it Forward Challenge!  Thanks to everyone who commented. The girls who I will be making things for over the next year are Tracy, Cheryl, Courtney, Tasha and Melissa!  I can't wait to get get started!  I also find the task a little bit nerve wracking!  What if you ladies hate what I make you?!!!  Please know that whatever comes, it came from my heart!  I hope you have fun doing your own, as well!

I've been really trying to get back into doing the bento lunches for the girls.  I forgot to take pictures today, but Rosie helped me make bagel pizzas and she had a blast.  She kept saying, "I am a wonderful cooker!"  I found the greatest website for healthy recipes for kids of all ages called Weelicious.  I got so inspired from it.  We have a lot of different snacks planned for this week.  The recipe I'm most excited to try out is the one for homemade soft pretzels.  I love me some pretzels!  I would definitely recommend the website.

Mark has had a horrible accident over at the refrigerator that may or may not have caused him to curse (which NEVER happens).  I probably should help.  Poor guy!

Have a great night!
