And 20 days for my youngest....Wow so today I was very happy with my buys I went to the GAP and got 5 tee shirts a pair of Jeans, a pair of Shoes and a light Jacket for fall....All for $80 seems good to me. Still need to do some more but that will come when we go into the city in a few weeks. I have never seen two kids so excited to go Backpack shopping. WOW they both pick out really great ones to..I am not ready for school to start I am going to miss my kidos.

Yummy Salsa Recipe

So I have been looking for a salsa recipe and could not find one anywhere......Well a friend of mine gave me a recipe that was good but not great so I tweaked it and not I have a super good one (I think).

I double or triple....


1 Cup Diced Tomato
1/4 Cup Diced Onion
1/4 Cup Chopped Cilantro
2 Jalapenos, Steamed Seeded and Diced
1/2 a Green Chile, Steamed Seeded and Diced
1 Garlic Clove Chopped
1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 Cumin
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice

I throw it all in the blender and puray
You can keep chopped if you like chunky salsa

Hope you all enjoy........

missing the gym

So I have been going to the gym and it is nice noticing some changes...Well about a month and a half ago I had to go do some Soccer drills because I told both my boys I would coach there teams. One is U6 and the other is U8. So I must have rolled my ankle one of the days I have to go do drills....(I also got stung by a be the 2nd day of drills). So I kept going to the gym in the mean while not knowing anything was wrong with me ankle. Over the last month it started to swell and hurt. Me thinking it would be OK and just get better it didn't it got worse....So I took a few weeks off iced and wrapped my ankle and this morning was my first day back at the gym. I never thought I would say it but I missed it and it felt so good to be back today..I really never thought I would find the love that you hear about...Guess i did.
