Monday love……. on Tuesday….

A Quote: Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. ~Henry Ford

Something Personal: I know, it’s Tuesday.  Where was the Monday Love?  Well, in the culmination of two CRAZY weeks, I decided to sit with my husband and catch up on some American Idol and Parenthood instead of working.  And it was so nice.  :)  Jeff has been traveling and we have had family in town, so the two of us have barely been able to have a complete conversation recently.  Not that sitting in front of the TV is a conversation, but we do enjoy watching our favorite shows once in a while.  I think we are only behind by about 6 or 7 episodes of American Idol now, and I haven’t watched Desperate Housewives in months.

So, the quote about failure is referring to the horrible week I had with my eating choices.  The food won.  I ate whatever suited me, didn’t track anything, felt like crap, and gained a couple pounds.  I think it’s always important to figure out what DOESN’T work, in addition to what DOES work.  So, a new week begins, and I’m making much better choices all around.  I made a wonderful dinner last night – Italian Turkey Sausage and Pepper Pasta (I forgot to take a picture though) and tonight we are having this recipe again – Shrimp, tomato and zucchini over Brown Rice (instead of pasta this time).  I added the mushrooms because I LOVE mushrooms – and I get to eat all of Jeff’s mushrooms too!   Yummy!

Shop, Sip & Savor: Did you save the date for our event at the Shoppe of Vinings on Tuesday, April 19th, 6-8pm?  It is going to be so much fun!  We have great reps coming to help us shop for new SwitchFlops, Vera Bradley bags, John Madeiros jewelry, Troll Beads — and more!  The Shoppe is donating 20% of total sales to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America on behalf of the James Gang for the annual walk on May 15th.  You can visit our page for more details: The James Gang Team Page. We would love to have you join us for the event on the 19th or the walk on the 15th – or BOTH!   This is our 5th year fundraising and attending the walk.  Here’s a picture of the “gang” from 2009.  Unfortunately, we don’t have a picture from last year because our kids were really sick and we spent most of the day at Children’s Urgent Care.  :(

Happy Monday TUESDAY!!!
