It was a reminder that spring is not too far away. I really need to get moving on Easter prep -- it is early this year so don't let it sneak up on you!
There is a reason that the arsenal where The Engineer and I work is named Redstone. It was named for the red rock and soil of North Alabama which while striking, is also a struggle to get out of clothes when you have two ballplayers in the family. When I purchased my Ford Edge five years ago, I knew that the beige floor mats were going to be a problem during ball season. So I bought my first set of Weathertech floor mats. I was hooked. It was so much easier to wash off the mats rather than shampoo and vacuum. So when we traded the Edge for my new Honda CRV in January, one of the first things I did was buy a new set. I think that I like the new ones even more, they are deceptively cushy. If you have kids, these are essential.
Enjoying: My new Keurig.
My old Keurig went boom yesterday and I made it through two coffee-free mornings before enough was enough. I thought about going smaller than our current machine (70 ounces) to save counter space but the Engineer talked me into going bigger. I am so glad he did, because the new one holds 80 ounces and is just really friggin nice. It has a touch screen. #thejetsons
Eating: I made the mistake of going to Costco hungry and I walked out with a shepherd's pie. Don't get me wrong, it is absolutely delicious but probably not the healthiest choice considering it is crunch time (literally) in my quest to be in shape by our upcoming cruise.
Writing: Our Engineers Week special issue of the paper is out! Check it:
It was my favorite EW issue yet and not as much of a bear as previous ones, thankfully.
Thanks for popping in!
