Happy Wednesday! I have nothing but randoms for this little blog today!

I have this dress coming my way from the lovely Hope's. Perhaps for one of the weddings we have.

 I made this recipe last night for Stovetop mac and cheese (I omitted the mustard - gross). It was ok - the taste was good but there was something about the texture of the sauce that Justin and I both noticed.
On Sunday at the watering hole Mom had stew which made me realized I have never made stew! So I found this recipe (omitted mustard and honey - added celery) on the lovely Jenn's blog (The Fit Housewife) and it is waiting for us in the crock pot for tonight.

I tried this new DVD by Jillian last week - there are 3 workouts. 
The first is more arms, second is more legs and 3rd is more core. I liked it. It's not killer hard but there are cardio intervals between the kickboxing and some weight work.
I have also been enjoying the workouts Jess posts over on the Blond Ponytail...like this guy:
{tabata = 8 sets - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest = 4 minutes}
She uses Kettlebells a lot which I love and I like quick workouts to do after a run.

And after said workout please eat this. You will thank me.
That's all.

Love that dress! So pretty. Too bad it's not in a size for petite girls.

Cute dress! I've made a similar recipe to that stovetop mac & cheese, but it was just pasta, milk and shredded cheddar cheese. It was yummy!

I love that dress! It's going to look great on you!

Is it weird that I prefer KD white cheddar to homemade Mac and cheese? I'm also so disappointed when I have homemade stuff that it doesn't taste like KD!

We make stew a lot in the winter. We had leftover stew last night! I'm going to try this recipe you posted (as long as you say it's good!)
