The correct answers to the rest of the questions are relative and depend heavily on what season of life you are in. However, if you answered that you went for a run this morning and threw away the leftover birthday cake, you might have taken a wrong turn in the blogosphere when you really meant to read the daily inspirational musings of someone a bit crunchier than I. Feel free to stick around, though. I'm working on that crunchy part. I can grow my own food and hang my laundry out to dry with the best of 'em.


  1. Normally, I would eat some cake for breakfast, than run extra hard out of guilt, but my stomach would feel terrible from the cake while running, so then I would throw away the rest of the cake and mope the rest of the day. Haha!

    In reality, I slept in a half-hour, ate a good breakfast and ran. And, if I had cake, I'd probably peek at it for lunch. ;)

  2. The majority of our sweet chunk o'change went in to a savings account for a new car. But I did go shopping yesterday and spent more money on clothes for myself than I have in at least 5 years! And I like one pair of pants so much that I'm thinking about going back to get another pair! :-)

  3. Cute post! I would take a picture of the cake, post it to my blog. Eat it and THEN take the nap - No dusting in dreamland.

    Don't judge me... It just stopped being February.

  4. Jess, you are way ahead of me in the crunchy department! All that running ... I admire you for it!

    Camille, I'm thinking some money needs to be set aside for the spring/summer wardrobe here, too. My closet is seriously lacking.

    Thanks, Candy! No judging here. You know I think we were sisters in another life. ;)
