Pure randomness … just because.

Happy Friday, my friends!  Here’s some random thoughts to spice up your day … from me, to you. Winking smile

1. I have found a new favorite afternoon snack:


I found this instant oatmeal at Whole Foods.  And check out their genius idea … they include a measuring line on the individual packages, so that you can add your liquid to the bag, rather than dirtying up a measuring cup! Thumbs up


The nutrition facts look pretty good …


… and it’s just really tasty!  If you have a Whole Foods around you, try it out!

2. When I was home last week, I was going through some old boxes.  One box included several things from my bedroom in high school.

Would you like to see what treasures I had hanging on my wall back in the year 2000?


Oh boy. Who me?

The first person to guess my favorite BSB member gets a super-cool prize.

(OK, not really.)

3. Jessica never fails to have the most drool-worthy recipes I’ve ever seen.  This week’s temptation?  Blueberry Bacon Breakfast Cake.  Seriously, check it out.  And then go eat a carrot, because just looking at those pictures will make you gain 5 pounds.

4. Speaking of temptations, Julie shared about Tax Day Freebies on Tuesday … including a coupon for Chili’s that promised a free appetizer or dessert with the purchase of an entrée.

Far be it for me to pass up free dessert. Angel


That would be an Oreo Molten Cake.  With warm, oozy Oreo crème in the middle.  Oh. my. word.

5. I have learned something since moving to Atlanta.  Actually, I learned it on Day 1.

Atlanta drivers are CRAZY.

No, really.  Like … crazy.

And they like to use their horns … a lot.  For no apparent reason. 



And evidently grass, sidewalks, and median barriers are meant to be driven upon. Disappointed smile



(OK now stairs I haven’t actually seen … yet.)

6. Anyone else watch “Biggest Loser” on Tuesday?

biggest loser


Brandon and I couldn’t figure out why the contestants were so shocked and outraged by the most recent twist.  Didn’t the show do the same thing last year?  I’m still scratching my head, trying to figure out what the BIG problem was …

7. Brandon and I completely missed the memo that Jesus Culture was in town this past Monday.  But since we missed their live concert, I thought I’d share a Youtube video of one of my favorite songs that they play!  Enjoy! Thumbs up



And that is it for today!  Have an amazing weekend!


Question for ya …

What’s on the agenda for this weekend?

Brandon and I are doing some volunteer work tomorrow with our church.  Other than that, no major plans!

What are drivers like where you live?

Have you tried the Oreo molten cake??  Have you ever had Chili’s original molten cake? 

Both are incredibly delicious.


I always thought ‘NSYNC was better, but I had a thing for Nick Carter.  Don’t ask.

    Love that song :)

    I have so many things to say, so I’m bulleting!
    1. Nick Carter was my favorite BSB too!!! I liked him ALMOST as much as I liked Justin Timberlake ;)
    2. Atlanta driving sounds a lot like Miami driving– it is HORRIBLE down there. People cut you off like it’s no big deal.
    3. I think my roommate eats that oatmeal!! And call me crazy, but I thiiiiink they sell it at Target too!

      Hahaha what on earth were we thinking with Nick Carter?? I needed to get my head checked back then! ;)

  2. Alyssa

    I always had a thing for Lance Bass. That worked out really well for me. Not. :)

    • notsodomesticated

      Hahaha! ;)

    I Have heard Atlanta drivers are insane!! I was there for work a few times and was always so happy I didn’t have to brave the roads! Pittsburgh isn’t too bad, but I can’t navigat anywhere but a few places. When we lived in cleveland, it was great. Except for all the snow.

      Oh yeah, these drivers don’t care about anyone but themselves. It’s like they all have tunnel vision!

  4. Tessa @ Amazing Asset

    Nick was my favvvv :) And yeah what was with the Biggest Loser on Tuesday? I decided to tune into it after missing it for the previous two weeks and was rather confused on why they were so pissed, I though I missed something that had happened! Guess not…
    On that cake… oh dear lord does it look glorious! Anything involving oreos and cake is most likely a WIN :)
    Enjoy your weekend!

      The cake tasted even better than it looks! ;) I didn’t get a good shot of the gooey creme filling!

  5. Amber with Slim Pickin's Kitchen

    Bwahahahaaaa!!! Yeah, I’d say you had a little crush on Nick Carter! No worries though! I was *obsessed* with Jordan Knight from NKOTB when I was growing up. As for Charlestonian drivers, they are just as crazy! Just yesterday, I saw a woman completely back up while she was stopped at a stop light (no one was behind her yet) and instead of switching lanes like I thought she was going to do (and would make sense) she just put her car back into drive and drove forward again in the same lane where she backed up. Weirdos.

      Jordan was my favorite NKOTB member, as well. ;)

      • Amber with Slim Pickin's Kitchen

        I’m pretty sure he was everyone’s! He was my cousins too, and she was so obsessed with him that when Jordan *finally* cut his skank, little rat-tail off, she cut the rat-tail off her little Jordan doll as well! Ha!

    1. I am heading up to Clarion this weekend to celebrate Sigma Sigma Sigma Founder’s Day with some amazing ladies!
    2. I think the drivers are more mellow here, but my mom sure does like to use her horn haha!
    3. I have never tried the molten lava cake but after that picture I might have to locate a Chilis:)
    4. BSB all the way! I had a thing for Nick Carter as well. Some of those posters looked familiar……

    • notsodomesticated

      Hahahaha why did we all like Nick so much??? It must have been the hair. ;)

  7. amy @ fearless homemaker

    that oatmeal sounds great – i’ll have to try it! i personally was an NSync gal, but i liked BSB too. can’t have too many boy bands in your life! =)

      Glad to see you had more taste than I did … looking back, I definitely think Brian was better looking. ;) Love ya girl … hope all is well with you!!

  9. Yellow Haired Girl

    I had the same thoughts watching Biggest Loser this week. I don’t get it! I’m pretty sure this has been done before, and even if it hasn’t … it’s a reality show! And I bet they signed their lives away before the show began. It perplexed me too.

    I’m lovin’ that oatmeal package’s design! Anything that requires less dishes = a win for me.

  10. natalie @ southern fit foodie

    I saw N’Sync and BSB in concert (and Hanson, but we’ll pretend I didn’t mention that) – I loved them all! I’ll be honest – I still like to get out those cd’s and dance around like I’m 16 again.

    Jackson drivers – they aren’t crazy like “big city drivers”, but they can’t drive. Most of them go under the speed limit and it makes me want to pull my hair out! Maybe I’m the crazy driver here…

    This weekend – surprise birthday party for a friend, bachelorette thing (not a party), church, and time with family!

    • notsodomesticated

      I saw BSB twice in concert and N’Sync once. And do you remember BBMack? They opened up for N’Sync, and we actually got to meet them! We took pictures with them and I thought I was pretty much the coolest thing ever after that moment. ;)

      P.S. Where are we meeting next week?? You need to email me your ideas! ;)

      • natalie @ southern fit foodie

        Oh yes, I remember BBMack! I took pictures of them, but not with them.

        I promise promise I’ll email you this weekend! Cheer tryouts are today, so I can have my brain back! :)

      I love JT. ;)

  12. Lauren

    I was lucky enough to see the NKOTB/BSB concert when they were recently on tour. I never heard so many grown women scream when Nick ripped his shirt off LOL.
    Such disappointment that NSYNC won’t go on tour. Come on Justin!

    • notsodomesticated

      Oh that is just too funny. Did you take pictures?? ;)

      • Lauren

        I did but none with their shirts off lol. And who knew Joey Mcintyre became so good looking?

  13. Jana @ Newly Wife Healthy Life

    I was in love with the backstreet boys back in the day! I couldn’t pick just one member to love, so I circulated my flavor of the week between Nick, Brian, and AJ (I guess I had a minor crush on bad boys? Lol)! I just wasn’t feeling it for Kevin or Howie, what a shame. Ha!

  15. Jentry Nielsen

    I live in a college/retirement town, yes I know weird it is both! ha All of our drivers are either crazy, or super slow! It’s horrible! haha

    Nick was my favorite too ;)

    That oatmeal looks great! I love how convenient it looks. My favorite BSB member was Kevin! I thought he was so cute. And obvi, my fav N Sync member was Justin.
    Yes – I am on a first name basis with my boy band crushes!
