Airplane Breakfast & Baby Love

{Random Friday Facts, a la Katie}

I played soccer for about 12 years, from kindergarten through high school. The only thing that means now is that I love being on a team, and at one point in my life I could kick a ball really far.

I signed up for my first half-marathon only because my roommate, LB, had run a Full a few months earlier. She wasn’t a “runner” before that, but she certainly seemed to be afterward. I was curious. And I convinced her to sign up with me.

I’ve only lived by myself twice, during two summers in college. Lesson learned: I am not meant to be the lone-ranger. I prefer company & conversation. And someone to enjoy What Not to Wear with me.

I brought a mini LARABAR, banana & a pack of LOVE GROWN granola on the plane with me; they served “100-calorie pack” Nabisco cookies & peanuts. My breakfast tasted much better.

There are some songs that I just never seem to get sick of. On that list, for now:

Uprising, The Muse
Bad Romance, Lady Gaga
You are the Best Thing, Ray LaMontagne
Harder to Breathe, Maroon 5
Wonderwall, Oasis
Empire State of Mind, Jay-Z & Alicia Keys
She’s My Winona, Fall Out Boy
Back to Black, Amy Winehouse
The Show Goes On, Lupe Fiasco

….just to name a few.

I had 60 pages left in The Help before I left for Texas. I obviously had to bring it with me, and finish the book. Then I had to carry around a 450 pg book for 3 flights. I see you, Kindle, and I get your appeal. But I won’t do it; you won’t take me as your victim!

There are two artists that I’d pay anything to see in concert: Ray LaMontagne & Lady Gaga. Preferably not at the same time, though.

Once I read that Dean Karnazes “keeps things interesting” by never running the exact same route twice. Since then, I’ve only ever run the exact same route, more than once, on a few occasions. Dean knows everything, right?! RIGHT.


On another note, I’ve spent the past two days with these girls and I’m not really ready for vacation{play-time}-mode to be over. This photo-shoot play-mate was too much fun:










Because we’d rather play with the baby all day than menu plan, we did an easy Frittata for dinner. When I say “easy” I mean delicious, and simple.

Asparagus Potato Frittata

1 medium sized potato, peeled & diced
1/2 c onion, diced
~3/4 c Asparagus, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
7 eggs
~2 tbsp white cheddar (or mozzarella), shredded
1 tbsp Olive oil

Heat the oil over medium; preheat the oven to 375*. Add potato & onion, s/p, saute until soft. Add asparagus.

Whisk the eggs together with a splash of milk; pour over vegetable mixture and cook over low/medium. When the edges begin to cook, sprinkle cheese on the top. Put the pan in the oven & bake for 5-10 minutes, watching carefully until the top is cooked through. {Clearly we paid close attention to all measurements & times. Uh-huh.}

Serve with a side of salad, and a glass of vino – Heather, Mike & Emily approved!

    She is SO adorable!! Glad you finally got to meet her. 🙂

  2. holy CRAP is that a cute baby!

    i am anti e-reader. and i hated living alone!

  3. Your breakfast sounds a million times better than the handouts on the plane! 🙂 The KIndle sound so great for travel and being on the go but there is something about a real book that is so refreshing. It feels like being unplugged! I used to love living alone until I lived with the manfriend for a year but now that he moved to do his student teaching I hate it so much!

  4. CUTIES!

    I don’t like living alone either. It’s too lonely!

    If you ever become “victim” to the e-reader…. the Barnes and Noble Nook is better then the kindle……..i love mine and so does consumer reports 🙂
    the help is an awesome book and i am almost done reading it!

  6. I love Ray too. I could and have listened to him all day. I would love to see him in concert. Now that I think about it I think I will listen to him today while I clean house. Thanks!

  7. OMG is she not the cutest thing ever??? LOVE it!!

    L is so cute!!!! Please bring more pics next weekend and let’s make a frittata, sit on the deck and drink vino. Okay we have a plan. Also I really think you would enjoy a Kindle once you tried one. Maybe I will let you read a book on mine in November while we sit on the beach. Love, Mamacita
