Sweetener Saturday/Sunday

Don't hate me, I know I missed Saturday...and I promised, a post EVERYDAY!! But this Saturday work kinda snuck up... as in, I was hanging out with the Chinook half the day. At any rate. 

I have this crazy question about, you guessed it, artificial sweeteners. I sorta have an addiction to diet soda, which equals an addiction to artificial sweeteners. But then this crazy, juice-blending lady at Costco said that artificial sweeteners are the worst thing we can put in our bodies. She emphasized "WORST" several times, and I started to feel guilty about my sweetener addiction. I looked down in shame (even though she had no idea I was A-to-the-DDICTED) and politely took her "all natural" juice. It was delicious, and oh so juicy, as in it did a number to my numbers (roger, Roger). 

Am I alone in wanting to experience soda without the carbohydrates? Am I killing myself with Crystal Light and sugar-free Jello? What do you guys think? 


And to clarify, I would say "addicted" to diet soda = one diet soda a day. 

On a side note: I hate that pesky Daylight Savings Time. I appreciate Arizona even more when I am standing around adjusting all my darn clocks! And yes Holly, I changed my lancet today ;-)

  1. Haha, good good. Lancet-changing is always a good thing. So is clock-changing when it equals an extra hour of sleep.

    My general attitude towards everything is "everything in moderation". And I certainly wouldn't say that one diet soda a day is out of moderation (in fact, George Simmons a.k.a. "Ninjabetic" would call you a light weight). That being said, I prefer Splenda when making my own drink, but that's not readily available in all diet sodas. My favs are Diet Mtn. Dew and Diet Dr. Pepper.

  2. Please... one a day is addicted?

    I can't even fathom the things I do/eat/drink atleast once a day... I feel like I should go to rehab! Honestly I wouldn't worry about that lady I think she was a bit looney, and I'm not just sayin' that! I mean it! I really mean that! although... the 20 calorie cup of faux icecream was pretty freakin good...

    Holly, I love the diet dew too....

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

'Subtle Nerdy' Home Decor

In our house you won't hear "Alexa...play country radio..." for two reasons. (1) We are not that into country music and (2) our "Alexa" is named "Computer" just like the interactive onboard computer on the Starship Enterprise. That's how I like my home decor too - it's a style I've nicknamed "subtle nerdy".  #subtlenerdy

Apparently 'subtle nerdy' doesn't have quite the following that 'farmhouse chic' does...yet! So, that means I have to get creative and DIY many of my nerdy touches. And, while you may not be super onboard with the 'subtle nerdy' trend sweeping the home decor world this hole-in-the-wall-internet-spot, I bet you have your own ideas just waiting to be manifested on a blank wall! So, let's jump in, starting in our master bedroom!

The showpiece of this room is that gorgeous four poster bed and amazingly detailed hand-made quilt. Confession number one: I did not DIY the bed (it was an ex…
