Coming up for air...

I just looked back at my last post and it was a recipe... in February. HOW BORING.

I've been slammed with work - in a great way - but by the time I finish with work at night, my eyes are burning from staring at the computer for so long that I can't even fathom doing something fun on it... like updating my blog. As you can imagine, most of my updates are going to be work-related, since it's taken up at least 12 hours of my days for the past few weeks. Lucky for you (and me!), my job is pretty bad ass. Helping end childhood hunger in America? Win-win-win.

Shall we begin? (This will be pretty painless, because I'm already tired of writing.... which is sad.)

Adam thought he broke his foot at baseball practice. How, you ask? He was tamping the dirt into the pitcher's mound and forgot to move his foot out of the way. So typical. Only my husband gets injured while coaching baseball. By the time to Urgent Care saw us (after two glorious hours of waiting...) I wasn't convinced Adam was even hurt. Regardless, we were happy to hear it was just badly bruised.

How do I ever take this guy seriously? Most of the time I don't, which is why we have so much fun.

Ruthie and I walked our first 5K together (with Debbie, Maddux and Avery). Somehow we didn't even place. I think it was rigged, because we had a super fast time of 52 minutes.

Cousin Amy came to town! We went shopping (Baker/Causey/Vinyard style) and dyed hair. So much fun!

Adam and I went to the Atlanta Chef's Expo, which was (in all honesty) pretty terrible. The layout of the event was poorly planned - there were long lines for everything, but there was no telling which line was which and where it ended/began. Also, the trashcans were overflowing around 2pm. The event was 1:30 - 6pm. I could probably do an entire post on it. Yikes. Needless to say, we didn't stay long.

The weather was gorgeous on the day of the above event, so we got home and spent some time on the porch.

We had our annual chef photo shoot for Taste of the Nation Atlanta, but this year the chefs were encouraged to bring their kids (we are working to end childhood hunger). We also had some of the children living at the Genesis Shelter in the group shot. It was amazing and my heart was so full. I LOVE MY JOB.

The anchors of CBS Better Mornings did a "decorate off" to promote the Baking Contest. It was so fun to watch - and contrary to my previous beliefs, a newsroom is the most calm place I've ever been. I felt like I could do yoga (not that I'm into yoga...). Click here to watch the segment.

Adam and I decided to paint our bathroom last weekend (more on that later), which called for a trip to Home Depot. How do I have any room to speak about him being weird?

Tuesday night was the very first event I was fully responsible for - the 6th Annual Baking Contest for No Kid Hungry. It went so well, and I had so much fun! Our goal was $9,000 total rev, and as of last night we're at $16,100 total rev! HOLLA!! There are obviously some things I will change next year to make sure it goes smoother, but overall I'm very proud. I had to make a quick welcome/thank you speech, and it didn't go quite how I had practiced in the car. Luckily, Jenn Hobby took over and rocked it.

On top of all that, we're still eating paleo. We did decide to take advantage of the built-in cheat on Sundays, so that's something we look forward to all week - ha! I do feel "cleaner" and it's getting easier, but I still want my salty foods, damnit! Adam also decided that we try Cross Fit starting yesterday. I'm not kidding when I say I almost threw up on the treadmill. The workout lasted all of 12 minutes, and it totally kicked my ass.

Ok - I'm done here, for now.
