"Mock" Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Try Mashed Cauliflower rather than Mashed Potatoes... get the recipe here!

Ok don't let the name fool you. By no means are these Mashed Potatoes. It wasn't bad though. If I make it again I will skip the parm. Cheese. I don't think its needed.

Abby loved it.

Jade tried it and gave me a funny look.

Hubby, well whatever. He doesn't try everything I make.

~Sorry no pics~

Hey today is Thursday. Still can't post pictures. So I will tell you a few things. What else can I do?

I biked lastnight! Super proud of myself. I went 6 miles. Well, ok I did not actually go because if I went I would have ran into the tv! So I stayed in one spot and peddled! Yes, peddled 6 miles.

I am keeping track of my calories now instead of count WW points. Here's why. When I get up I want to here oh you can eat 1500. Not you can eat 12 or 36 or whatever my points where. Don't remember because the point system did not work well for me. So for 5 full days now I have tracked my food and exercise. I have been tracking it at It is a great site. There are tons of other people just like you and I. Great place to get advice and share things too.

Maybe just maybe by June 1st when I yes, get ready for it.... turn the big 30 and head out on a family vaction with my husband and 4 children... maybe I will have a bathing suit to take along and feel at least ok about wearing it.... I have not had a suit in well at least the last 7 years.... that means no swimming for me in 7 years.... after we travel our 1400 miles with 4 screaming kids and the heat index is 100 degrees maybe I won't care if I am 30 years old and how I look in a bathing suit. Who knows.

So today my worries of all things are how am I going to find time to bike?!?! I have to attend CPR tonight from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Seriously, do we need to look at  manicans for 3 hours? The trainer is the same Red Cross trainer who trained me the last 5 times. Wonder at what point she will say "Oh I remember you".

Well enough about all that. I am going to go eat Pizza... spendy pizza. I searched the pizza cooler lastnight at Cub Foods trying to get a pizza I would like but also one that was lower in calories than some. It cost so much more to eat healthy and that just frustrates me.

So off I go. Hope this gets you buy until blogger gets their act together and realizes that Life in the Wynn House is not the same without pictures!

Oh and one last thing.... Celery does not taste like Chocolate even if you imagine it does while eating it. Not even with light ranch dressing!

~No pictures~

Blog Issues, Serious issue. I am in a blog I don't know what to do. I am out of room for pictures? Are you kidding me? How can this be possible? What the freakin heck do I do now. Purchase, as in buy more space. Whatever. I can't purchase more space.

So I got blog issues. What good is my blog without pictures. Seriously is there anyone out there? Someone help me please. This is serious!

This can not be the end to Life in the Wynn house... no not yet......

~A birthday party~

Abby's party went great!
We had great family over and great food.
I made chicken and the fixings which was alot of work
but tasted really good!
Abby was very happy with her cakes!

Abby had yummy chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting for her birthday.
They had a cookie in the middle too!
(so not good if you are on a diet)
She got lots of phone calls on her special day.

Tomorrow she is having some family over for supper and cake!

~Kitchen update~

Last winter we did this!
Having the mircowave above the stove is wonderful!
It saved alot of counter space.

Now in the last few weeks we have done some more work!
Took out the old cabinets!

We ended up with this not so pretty space.

So we added these cabinets!

Maddi helped me move the frig!

We had to put up some textured stuff because at some
point someone textured all the walls in the house.
(the textured stuff doesn't look to bad as long as
you use the right paint colors)

Danny had to cut a small hole in the dinning room wall.
This wall is shared with the kitchen.

Then he moved the kitchen light into the dining room.
He had to do some repainting of the wall then.
We had to move our frig over closer to the door way which
blocked the light switch. That's why it had to be moved.

The when I was gone with Jade (for girl scouts) 
Danny allowed Mason to take a 3.5 hour nap.
During Mason's nap Danny painted the walls yellow.
Then Monday night he stained the cabinets.
Wow, does that stain ever give me a headache!

Next on the list is to do the bottom cabinets and pick a counter top!
They will go from the stove to the frig.
I can't wait until we can do them because
I really need to get my things out of totes and organized.

I am also now dreaming of a taller frig.
When we moved into our home we had to buy our appliances.
The frig had to be rather short because of the cabinets that were up.
We were able to save some of the old cabinets for our laundry room!
