Welcome to the craziness....

My current fascinations...

Once again I come to you in numerical order... I blame it on the heat. It's that odd time of the year when I leave the house in jeans and a blazer because it's chilly and then by the time I pick everyone up from school it's 80 degrees and I cannot take the aforementioned blazer off because of the large sweat stains that may or may not be evident on the tshirt I have on underneath. (Why hello run on sentence).

So here is what I'm diggin these days:

1. Chuy's
-This may or may not be something you have experienced...but if you love Mexican and there is one where you live you must check it out. It is all kinds of Mexican delishishness all served is a crazy wacky environment. I think I overheard something about aliens hidden all over the restaurant (no, not real ones) and if you find them all you get a free t-shirt. Honestly, I think I should have gotten a free t-shirt for finishing off the "burrito as big as my head".

2. Pinterest...and more specifically Oreo cheesecake bites.
-Like I have said before I could dedicate a whole post to Pinterest, but I'll save that for a rainy day...or a day I cannot think of anything else to say...which is not very often mind you. Anyhoo, I found this easy and yummy recipe on pinterest for Oreo Cheesecake Bites. Now, I have to be honest I am not a big 'traditional' cheesecake person but I do love a good Oreo...as opposed to a bad one...which by the way I am beginning to think doesn't exist. I made these tasty little morsels to share with friends and I wasn't going to try one but today all that heat got the better of me and I decided to give it a whirl. Well, I'll tell y'all these may have converted me from cheesecake animosity to cheesecake enthusiast. (I had popped them in the freezer to firm them up and I think that made all the difference...or maybe not...nonetheless, it was a tasty cool treat)
(Btw, these aren't mine, they aren't near as pretty...but I wanted you to have a visual)

3. J. Lo
-More specifically J. Lo at Kohls. (J. Lo isn't really at Kohl's. She is probably on some yacht in the middle of the Caribbean. But her clothing is. I mean not her clothing, but the new line she created. Ok, let's be honest, she probably didn't create it, she just put her name on it. Anyway, you get my drift)
And what is even better??? I just got a 30% coupon in the mail for Kohls. Yes mam, this momma will be contributing to J. Lo's Caribbean vacation. I got my eye on a few things.
Like this:

Or this:

Or maybe even these (if I'm feeling extra sassy...and I am not having to walk far...and I have zero of three children with me):

4. The return of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Enough said.

5. Ok...I can't really think of a #5 that I am loving right now.
But can I tell you something I am NOT loving?

You may ask yourself, what is that?
Well that my friends is a soggy wet diaper that came off my 14 month old at 8am this morning.
You may also ask yourself, why isn't it in the trash?
Yeah, I am asking myself the same thing.
Clearly the hubby was in charge this morning while I served my Patriotic duty...or stay-at-home mom duty, whatever suits you, by attending the monthly PTA meeting.
It's 10 feet to the garbage. Come on now. Step up.
(Who am I kidding, this is the man that was convinced the Jesus sandals were mine)
