Randomness Involving Pie

Randomness Involving Pie 


A mish-mash of randomness comin' atcha!



We ran it. We rocked it.

We run with our local chapter of MyTeam Triumph. I've never finished an entire 5K without walking at least a little.  But last Saturday, with the exception of stopping really quick to adjust my son's head in the jogging stroller, we ran the whole race! And we finished in 35 minutes!

Then I got really pissed at my lap top on Wednesday and wasted a lot of time on a blog post I was determined to publish. I was about ready to punch my computer screen in the face when I decided I had wasted enough time. So I got up and went for a morning run.

Finished two miles in 20:30. Thanks, stupid laptop. I hate you but that was my best time ever.

{We're moving.}

I have had house envy FOREVER. What's house envy? It's when I see pictures of everyone's amazing homes on facebook and I get envious.

Well, now I get to move into a new (to me) house! It's a little bigger and we desperately need the space. But it has a brick fireplace and I can't wait to cover it with Pinterest  crafty mantle stuff. Already envisioning it.

It's the calm before the storm. Storm comes next week. And by storm I mean the whole moving thing. I should be packing. But I'm not.

{Hair color.}

Goodbye bleach blond. I will miss you. I went a little too blond over last summer and my hair hasn't forgiven me. So I decided to go back to my original color, or at least what my roots were showing. It happened today. My hair stylist said she gets sad every time a bleached hair goes away. Me, too.

Bye bye, blond. (And dark roots).

Now it's just my drabby blond. Unexciting. Bland. No fault of the stylist. I asked her to do it. I think it's that I'm so used to having drastic color - platinum stripes, bright red chunks, two toned - that now it just looks boring. I'd show you a picture but I don't want to bore you.

{It's National Pi Day.}

So we made a pie. Lola took a long nap this afternoon and anytime that happens I feel like I just hit the jackpot. Who cares if she'll now be awake until midnight?! It's a mid day break! But it always comes back around to bite me.

The result - she's up late. So we made a chocolate chip pie in celebration of Pi day. Or because it's Thursday. Whatev.

And, by the way, chocolate chip pie tastes just like chocolate chip cookie in pie form. All kinds of awesome is what that is. And ridiculously easy.

You can find the recipe here.

I made it with graham cracker crust, which makes it better.


It's a blogger date! Tomorrow I'm meeting up with Lauren from Life.Love.Lauren and Alli from Allena Mistral.

I'm so excited and I can't believe we all live in the same small city.

Big weekend ahead! Enjoy your own randomness.
