A Repeat Offender…

Happy Tuesday!  I am so excited that 90210 comes back tonight as well as the new show starts called The Ringer!  I love Fall television as long as the shows are good!  The past two days the weather has been beautiful!  It’s nice to see the sun again.  Although, I think it’s supposed to rain tomorrow and be chilly for the next couple of days.  Yesterday was so busy at work!  I think I only got up from my desk like two times the entire day.  I still didn’t get everything done that I needed to.  I felt somewhat productive.  I’m hoping that today I can get a lot more work done.

When I came home from work, all I kept thinking about was that recipe that I made for dinner last week.  It was so delicious and I just kept thinking about how I wanted to make it again.  I asked Mike what his thoughts were and he said he really liked it. He wouldn’t mind having it again for dinner.  Wahoo!  Luckily, I still had the ingredients that I needed and I made sure to pick up some spinach when I was at the supermarket on Sunday.  So I was ready to go!

This was even better than the first time that I made because I think I knew what to expect when making it.  I’m so happy that I have leftovers today for lunch!  I always have the worst time trying to figure out what to eat for lunch everyday.  The best is when dinner leaves leftovers and I can bring them to work with me.  What do you typically bring to work for lunch?  Have any ideas for me?

So last night I was watching one of my new favorite shows, The Lying Game.  I really have to say that I love it!  If you don’t watch it, it’s about two twin sisters who recently found each other because they were separated at birth.  They were adopted and they are trying to find out what happened to their birth parents, more specifically their mother.  The one twin, Sutton, lives with a wealthy family and the other twin Emma was being bounced around in foster care.  Once they found each other, Sutton asked Emma to come and pretend to be her while she went to search for their birth mother.  I like the concept of the show.  It’s similar to Pretty Little Liars, if any of you watch that.  Anyway, the reason I am bringing this up is the concept of twins!

Have you ever wanted to be a twin?  I know when I was younger I always wanted a twin or to have a twin in my family.  I thought it would be cool to have someone who looks like you, acts like you and is the same age as you.  I guess I was always stuck on this idea because I was obsessed with the movie, The Parent Trap and with Full House.  The more and more I think about it now, I don’t know if I would have wanted to be a twin.  I’m happy the way things panned out with me being a big sister to Melissa.

Mike’s family has two sets of twins them!  I think that is pretty cool!  They say that twins skip a generation, which if that is correct, could mean that Mike and I could have twins in the future.  I always wanted to have twins, a boy and a girl.  Thinking though about how much work that would be and how much money it would cost, I’m not so sure anymore.  However, if it happened I would be happy.  I would be happy no matter what as long as it was a healthy baby!  What do you think?  Would you want twins? 

Alright, time to get back to work now.  Have a good day!  :)

  1. I need to make that cheese sauce! My Dad’s Half sister has twins…hope it runs on my side of the family. I’d like to have twins to get the whole birth thing over in one shot, hehe.

  2. I love leftovers for lunch, too! Otherwise, when I know I’m really swamped, I make one big thing on sunday – a pot of soup, bbq pull chicken, chicken salad, etc – and just portion it out on Sunday night and voila! Lunches are done for the week. I don’t mind eating the same thing every day, and this is mindlessly easy.

    My cousin has 2 sets of twins (she went through IVF), three boys and a girl. Things were obviously crazy when she had 4 kids under 3 years old, but they’re big kids now and the oldest are in middle school. Somehow she makes it work! Another cousin is expecting twin boys this fall (also IVF).

    My dream family was always : boy, twin girls, another boy. Don’t ask me why.

    • That is such a good idea! I’ve always wanted to prepare my lunches or meals for the week on Sunday. I should start doing that. Same here! I would probably eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch everyday and not get sick of it ;)

      Wow, that is awesome!! I think that is the perfect dream! Little boys are so cute! :)
