What’s up with Nap time and other musings!

15 Oct

Today Camden was an absolute BEAST! He takes 2 naps a day, today however he woke up at 7am was insane at work all day until we had to leave because he was over tired (his first nap is always around 10:30-11am)! We got home around 2 and he was FINALLY asleep, thank you car rides! He was in fact so tired I was able to change his clothes and diaper without his eyes even opening. This all leads me to question what is it about naps?!?!?! When we are little and supposed to take them we don’t want to and fight them really hard. When we are older (or pregnant) it is all we want to do! Well unless you’re Dan who cannot take a nap!!

While this photo isnt from today it is a classic Camden sleep photo. He’s big into sleeping with his butt in the air!

Also today I started what I said I would yesterday! I woke up early got ready for work made breakfast for Camden and packed our lunches for the day. While I know my blog isnt weight watchers or a food journal it is still mine so I can put whatever I want in here.

So here is what I ate today:

Breakfast: A chobani yogurt with pomegrante granola (I need more dairy in my life)

Snack 1: Apple (apples, lemons, and cheeseburger WHAT, have been my cravings) this was a much healthier snack than a cheeseburger. No I don’t think they are snacks just to clarify!

Lunch: 2 cups of romaine lettuce with grilled chicken and caesar dressing.

Snack 2: a handful of triscuits and some sharp cheddar cheese.

Dinner tonight is at my Grandma’s its family dinner and my Mom’s bday celebration so I was glad to have a healthy day! I know you are probably really surprised to see there are not photos of my food, no sorry I forgot to take them.

I will leave you with photos from our anniversary dinner which was on October 10th and not Septmeber 24th which is our actual anniversary. But hey we are rebels!!! So we went to Foxwoods Casino and ate at Alta Strada delicious!!!

We had some bread with olive oil infused with basil, parsley and mint it was really good! Then we shared crispy veal meatballs and caesar salads. Dan had chicken parm with roasted potatoes and I had homemade pasta with bolognese. That is my go to Italian meal and if they do it right it is¬†phenomenal! Let’s just say between Dan and I there was nothing left of my dish. If you are local I suggest you try it.

Im going to relax and get some stuff done while Camden continues to nap and then head to the party! Thanks for reading!!

Iphone photo drop and why my Aunt Kim will be proud of Me!

8 Feb

My Aunt Kim is a cool lady! She has done some pretty cool things in her life. She is also one of my heroes for doing something I would NEVER have had the courage to do when I was 18. She left her home and went into the Navy. She lived in California for a while and then was stationed in Italy! She is really cool, she plays video games with us, and is up on most of the latest trends.

Me, my Aunt Tamarra, Uncle Bob and Aunt Kim at the Color Me Rad Race!

I am pretty glad they all did it with me!

So when I found this recipe in Family Circle (whoever started sending that to me I thank you!) I knew I should make it in homage to her!!!

Yum Pasta Carbonara! Aunt Kim has her own recipe that is super close to this so I was glad to find an authentic recipe in a magazine with a lighter twist! It was really good!!!

With that I made a salad and had to try my new Trader Joe’s dressing which I loved so much!

The boys weren’t into trying it.
