Don’t Leave Me Home Alone

I think my father secretly likes being referred to as the daddykins on the blog.  It makes him feel so famous.  I think he also gets tired of me rambling off about my blog in true life but I’m wearing real girl clothing so there is only so much I can do.

Hmm, Thursday was a big day for me.  I became-Hollie-ultra domesticated female.  I did some baking (peanut butter cookies), cleaning, and even laundry.

I really do believe if I wasn’t so sassy, I could just go major in professional housewife blogging, running, swimming woman.  I feel that is a pretty standard degree at most colleges.

I’m glad you guys enjoy the new header.  I actually hated the other one but never got around to changing it.  It is my summery and joyous, kinda ,like me.  Now I suppose I can look at my own blog once in a while (like déjà voo?).


Today was not too exciting of a day sadly.  I made a waffle before heading off to the pool which is where I spent the majority of my day.

I'm not sure why my blueberry jam looks redish. Either way it was still nomtastic.

I hate eating on the run but when I do 99% of the time, it is a tuna fish sandwich.  It’s kinda like my staple lunch at the moment.  Between helping new guards and eating, I managed to get a tempo run of 8 miles in there somewhere.  VA weather was glorious today as it wasn’t too humid or hot.

I do feel the need to share with you the most delicious dinner that I made last night.  I got it of all places off the back of the cheese package.  I’m kinda in love with cheese with mozzarella, cheddar and feta and parmesan being my favorites.  Oh wait-crumbly bleu cheese.  No and goat cheese.

Okay yes-cheese is good.

Anywho without further ado (and you know all my recipes take cerca de 15 minutes or less to prepare…).


2 cups cooked pasta

½ pound Italian sausage

1 package spinach leaves

1 can diced tomatoes

1 cup mozzarella cheese


2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

Mass amounts of garlic


  1. Crumble sausage into large deep skillet and cook on medium heat for 10-12 minutes.  Stir occasionally.
  2. Drain sausage then add spinach and tomatoes and cook until spinach has wilted.
  3. Add in the cook pasta followed by cheese and garlic.
  4. Then eat (99% of it like I did…actually my brothers were home, I can’t take all the credit)


Questions for you:

  1. 1.       Staple lunch?
  2. 2.       What are your plans this weekend? (Are you racing?)

Blerg-I’m doing a triathlon.  I”m more nervous then god knows what but we can chit chat about that tomorrow.  Oh and aDuBs is doing a 5k so go wish her luck.

  1. Oh yeah. I do love your new header. It’s awesome.

    My staple lunch is peanut butter and Greek yogurt mixed all up with protein powder.

  2. yea triathlon!! so excited for you!! so did you have a good break? Is everything ok? (ps Ive just being thinkinga bout ya)

  3. Not a cheese fan unless it’s cream cheese!! I used to like cottage cheese but I can’t remember what it tastes like? I do love goats cheese though. Again, haven’t had that in forever. Need to buy some soon!

    My staple lunch lately has been a fried egg sandwich with avocado and hummus and mustard. YUMMM.

  4. No racing – I’m injured. 🙁 I had a race scheduled for Sunday, but it’s a no go.

    I love a couple of different lunches: tomato basil soup (Costco!) is one of my favorites. Other choices: veggie/hummus sandwich on wheat bread. And, I love pretty much any lunch with edamame and cottage cheese (not together).

  5. Good luck with your triathlon- you will ROCK it- you are a FAN.COM TASTIC athlete. I believe in you- believe in yourself!
    Tuna wraps/sandwiches are def my staple lunch too- I had one today actually.
    Mmmmmmm, cookies

  6. I want to get a degree in housewife blogging and running. I could definitely make a career out of that.
    My staple lunch for when I don’t feel like cooking anything is a frozen green giant vegetable medeley (potato, sugar snap pea, and red pepper variety) with a veggie burger and a luna bar or something. Usually I have to pack lunch for school and I basically live off of this overly processed meal during track season.

  7. When I’m feeling especially uninspired, my staple lunch tends to be a sandwich or a salad with wheat crackers. Wayyyyy exciting.

    P.S. I like the new header 🙂

  8. TOTES thought that was tuna. Wow good job Katelyn. Slash I just noticed the new look of the blog since I usually read from my phone — I love it!!! Yellow is so sunshiney happy beautiful:)

  9. LOVE the new header!!!! SO funny being lost in the peak (sounds right) and I immediately think to tweet you to save me from my troubles LOL. You need to come down to the beach!! Teach me how to swim! HAHAHAHA xo

  10. Good luckkkk in the triathlon!! I have a lamb show tomorrow. I love the new header! 🙂 I just saw it today because I don’t normally read your blog on my actual computer. My staple lunch is peanut butter and jelly and apple sandwiches. PB&J will never get old. Or almond butter and J… but same concept. 😉

  11. My staple lunch…hmm..since becoming a vegetarian I don’t think I’ve nailed down a staple lunch. I just sort of eat whatever I am feeling like that day weather it be a second breakfast or some leftovers and recently i’ve been eating lunch out way more than dinner! My plans this weekend include watching my 9 and 3 year old cousins-so a lot of time will be spent at the swimming pool since it is god awful hot in Birmingham!

  12. Your pasta looks great! We made a similar thing last night for dinner with about 8tbsp of garlic! YUM!!!

    Weekend plans include getting organized, working out, doing a little shopping and relaxing a little! : )

  13. Good luck on your tri! I would major in housewifery if I could, too. Staple lunch is probably just a sandwich lol. lame, I know.

    What kind of bike are you using for your tri?

    weekend ummm go to the zoo, work out, and ride my new bike 😀
