Mom's vs. Kids meal

So, way back in the day when I considered getting pregnant; I told Heavenly father "if u send me a girl, I'll most likely send her back. May I please have boys?"  Some of this stemmed from not getting along with my little sister. Not the case anymore, SHE ROCKS! But I'm thinking cause I always thought of my self as the ugly duckling & more of a Tom boy, I'd get along with boys better. I'd know what to do with them :).
Well, now I spend my days being surrounded by the cutes boys on the planet. Really they are. Plus all their crazy & cute little friends.
 Like the other day they wanna dress in morph suits & want me to take them to Wally mart so they can make videos. Sooooo crazy silly. I love these kids. But them one friend acts a little too crazy & some old fart yells at them to take their masks off, turn off their camera & get out of the store. Some people just don't know how to enjoy life. So sad:(
 Next they con me into taking then to the out door mall. Which actually worked better. Now they are on their way to...snapping pics with cute girls, high fiving strangers,  and showing off their 2 gun point & wink, (but you couldn't see the wink because of the masks). It was adorable. They got a good 15 min of video before being ousted by the most polite Mall cop ever.
What adventure will they think I next??

Food adventure...No you dont' have to eat what the kids eat or eat their left over french fries off their plate either.  Time to shake it up a bit...add some spinach to the taco fixings, add avocado to your burger & skip the bun or white tortilla.  Here I steamed up some of my favorite veggies.
2 TBS water with a dash of seasoning.
1 Cup of shopped sweet onion & peppers.
2 Eggs.

Now tell me what your Moms vs. kids meal is????

Buy Local & Fresh...Stay in your "Bubble"!

At a San Diego airport, I'm standing in line for about 15 plus minutes waiting to get through security.  Then, suddenly, from out of nowere this lady is at my side. Her boobs & stomach rubbing my backside.  What the freak?  It's totally creeping me out. I'm wondering if she thinks I cut in front of her, she kind of appeared out of know where at my side. As I stepped forward, there she was.  I guess I should say there "they" where. LOL.  I would move forward & be sure to give lots of place to the people I was behind. And to kind of show a "healthy distance". Like I'm trying  to be some kind of "example". But the lady behind me wasn't catching a clue. I guess I shouldn't say behind...I should say the Lady on me.  I wondered if I should tell her to back off or ask her if he had a problem. Now we have moved forward in line about 10 feet in another 10 minutes.  Her large womenly parts are not giving my back a rest iether.  REALLY? CAN YOU NOT FEEL ME? I want to yell, "Back off chick"!
Them my mouth opened and out came. "So, you have a small bubble?" With a smile I chuckle to smoooooooth the moment. 
She smiles back in surprise & remarks. "I have small kids who are always on me, so I guess I don't realiznge I don't have a bubble anymore." We laugh together. I comment back on how my kids are always hanging on me too.  Though, in my head I'm thinking, My kids all over me is ok, but strangers is a whole other story.  I certainly have a bigger bubble. So, I proceed to my business with smile in my heart. 

We never know someone elses thoughts, feelings, or circumstance. 

So before you get your undies in a bunch... Smile, ask, talk politely & learn something new about the person near you:)

And when you get home, order a box of local fresh produce from any of these great sites below.

Then tell or show me what you make with your yummy fresh finds.
