This is what I did: I unpeeled a banana and put it in a bowl with balsamic vinegar then I covered the bowl with plastic wrap and poked holes in it. The fruitflies go in but they are too dumb to get out. OMG this morning there were a bagillion fruitflies stuck in the bowl! It was soooo gross! I took the bowl outside. Now I'm not sure what to do with them though! I guess I'll let them go; far far away from the house so that they won't come back in! There were still a couple fruitflies that didn't fall for my evil plot so I'll have to set up another trap today. I don't want any eggs being laid in my kitchen! Yuck yuck!

This is what happens when:
That's one way to do it!
Of course, after knocking the doorknob off, the door still wouldn't open. I called my parents and my dad came to the rescue! Poor Zoe, she didn't understand why I wasn't coming in to get her. Henry may have locked the door but he kept me sane during the whole ordeal. First he made me laugh by saying "you need to get your keys!" "mommy get your keys and unlock the door" then he got a spoon to help me get the doorknob off. While waiting for my dad to get to the house he told me "mommy, you need to sit down and relax, let's sit down and relax a minute". I love that boy, even though he locked his sister in her room!

I went to Walmart last night to pick up a few items and while I was there I decided to try on some bathing suits. Bad idea. Did you realize that the mirrors in Walmart dressing rooms add about 30 pounds and make you look pastier than you really are, oh they also make you look 5 inches shorter too. (how do they sell any clothes in that store? haven't they heard of "skinny mirrors"?) Obviously I didn't buy a bathing suit and I was embarrassed enough by how I looked that at 8:15 last night I popped in an hour long workout video!
I am doing the slim in 6 workout tapes. I bought these a long time ago (probably 6 or 7 years ago now) and I'm dusting them off to try again. My wonderful husband is doing the tapes with me. It's great to have a workout buddy! I need to take a "before" picture so that in 6 weeks I can take an after pic and show them side by side. I would post the before now but I don't want to scare little children.

We have made this recipe several times at the Hawkins' house and after we finished eating it last night I was reminded that I wanted to share this recipe the first time we ate it. It is really yummy and, as long as you use lean beef, healthy too. At first I thought, "pasta with taco meat?" but it really works well together!
1 box rotini pasta
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup water
1 package taco seasoning
1 green bell pepper diced
1 red bell pepper diced (I added this part)
Prepare the pasta (you can use whole wheat to make this even more healthy).
While the pasta is cooking brown the meat in a skillet until no longer pink. Drain the beef of excess fat and return to the skillet.
Add water, taco seasoning and bell pepper to ground beef; simmer until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally
Plating: place a portion of pasta on your plate, top with the ground beef mixture, top it off with sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, or whatever else you think would be good.

Matt shared this video with me and I think it's great. Matt did this song in church a couple weeks ago and this is the writer/singer of the song telling the story of the song. I ♥ the song but the story makes it that much greater. If you have the time to watch it please do! If you are like me, you will watch it and think that was neat and then a few hours later you will find yourself thinking about it and want to watch it again because you can't get it out of your mind.
