it all started with whey…

For some really stupid reason that I do not understand I decided to put some protein powder in my smoothie today. I knew it was whey protein. But I knew I needed some protein. But I am allergic to whey. This was a bad decision that then catapulted every other decision I made today into crazy town.
I went to an appointment and then decided to skip my next 3 stops and go to the car dealer to see about turning my leased car in sooner than August, which I can’t do without a metric sh*t ton of fees.
I checked my voicemail and heard that my office heads were having a pizza lunch for all our admin today at noon, so obvi, I decided to skip my noon appointment and go eat pizza, oh and of course I should bring cake. 3 cakes to be exact. Cause one would certainly not be enough. And I ate 3 slices of pizza and a slice of each cake. Yup. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting, lemon creme and strawberry shortcake. What’s that about being allergic to whey? Oh nothing, never mind, I’m fine, I got this. Insert stomach gurgle and carb crash here…
I came home to do some work and my sister in law stopped over and I decided hanging out with her was more fun than working. It was. But I should have been working.
I started a mini-fight with Big Dude. Rectified and all is well, but unnecessary.
Had dinner with the neighbors. Pizza and cheesecake. 2 pieces of pizza and 3 pieces of cheesecake.
And now I sit watching The Vampire Diaries with a gurgly stomach wondering where it all went wrong and realize its all the smoothies fault for not being bacon.


Mountains and Molehills

I have a new listing coming up.  I can’t tell you about it, but I’ll show you the view.  It’s CRAZY amazing.  My family is from Stowe and I’ve been going there my entire life.  But this view, THIS VIEW, is the most redonkulous view I’ve ever gotten of the mountain.  And I get to sell it.



This is the view from the driveway and I took the photo with my phone in one hand and trail mix in the other.  So you know its way better than this.  Really.

Previously in life, one of the ways I have dealt with stress was to bake.  That may or may not have had anything to do with my crazy sweet tooth and chocolate addiction, but that’s neither here nor there…  Now that we’ve gone Paleo-esque in our dining fashion, my baking has become more of a quest for deliciously healthy(ish) substitutes for cookies, cakes, brownies, and all other sweet and wonderful things.    Today I’ve got a hankering for a cookie.  I attempted a chocolate chip cookie with almond floor on Superbowl Sunday, but failed miserably.  So today I’m looking at an Apple Banana cookie that looks interesting on the same site that I found an incredible banana bread recipe that I’ve shared with all my new found Paleo enthusiasts, and so I’m hopeful for these cookies.  My son, however has no hope for them based on the failed cookies from Sunday.
