Where’s all the Fro-Yo?

Hi again!

I can’t believe it’s Friday again.  Time flies when … you’re doing absolutely nothing. Smile with tongue out

I don’t think I’ve shared too much on the blog about what I’ve been doing since the move to Atlanta.  As most of you know, we moved for Brandon’s job.  I quit my job as a school psychologist in Ohio so that I could move with him (because, call me crazy, I want to be living with my husband Winking smile).  However, trying to find a job with a school district in the middle of the school year is pretty much impossible.

The good news?  I am going to start doing some contract work with a district … which means I’ll just be helping out on an “as needed” basis.  But other than that, I don’t have a whole lot to do!

I am by no means complaining.  Having a little time off can be nice, especially because it frees me up to look at houses whenever my realtor is available … since at some point, we’re going to have to move out of this hotel! Smile with tongue out

But it also means that I have a lot of time on my hands.  A lot.

bored baby


So what have I been doing?

Other than looking at houses, I’ve been doing a lot of working out, Bible study, blogging, and (let’s be honest) TV watching.  I haven’t done too much exploring of the area because I’ve been trying to save money (because FYI, houses aren’t cheap!).

But on Wednesday, I had to get out of the house hotel.  So I decided it wouldn’t hurt to do a little “window shopping” at the Mall of Georgia!


Of course, temptation got the best of me, and window shopping turned into … well … real shopping. Angel


In my defense, I found some great deals!  Those Express shorts were buy one pair, get the other pair at a discounted price … PLUS I found a $15 coupon on their website!

And FYI, Old Navy currently has a “buy one, get one free” deal on a ton of solid-colored tanks and tees!  So all 4 of those tops cost me less than $16! Thumbs up

On the way home from the mall, I had a serious hankering for some frozen yogurt.  But my (very unreliable) GPS couldn’t come up with any frozen yogurt stores in the area … even though I knew there was one around somewhere!

So instead, I ended up heading to Chick-Fil-A.


You can get a monstrous cup of ice cream there for less than $2.00 and less than 300 calories!  Sounds like a winner to me! Winking smile


So I’m finally jumping on the bandwagon today and completing the survey that the lovely Janetha started and every blogger I know has completed!

(I’m always late on trends. Smile with tongue out)

A is for age: 28, but I look about 12 (or so I’ve been told.)

B is for breakfast today: Peanut butter and banana on a toasted English muffin, sliced pineapple on the side, coffee, and water.

C is for currently craving: I’m still really wanting some frozen yogurt!  (Hint, hint, Brandon! Winking smile)

D is for dinner tonight: I’m making a Mexican chicken dish.  It’s the first time I’m using the burners in the hotel room.  Fingers crossed I don’t set off the fire alarm!


E is for favorite type of exercise: Running.  I have a love-hate relationship with running, but it’s still my favorite form of exercise.  Even when it’s hard, I feel amazing when I’m done!


F is for an irrational fear: Currently, it’s that we won’t find and close on a house before our 90 days in the hotel are up.  It’s totally irrational, but there it is.  No worries … I’m praying through it. Winking smile

G is for gross food: Cottage cheese, feta cheese, blue cheese … and olives.  Bleck.

H is for hometown: Great question!  I don’t even know!  I spent most of my childhood/teen years in Ellwood City, PA, so I guess that would be considered my “hometown?”  But I also consider Sarasota, Florida my hometown because my mom still lives there and I spent several years there … hmmm … Thinking smile

I is for something important: My relationship with Christ first, and my relationship with my husband, friends, and family. Red heart

J is for current favorite jam: I just got the Passion 2012 CD, and I’ve been listening to it non-stop.  This is just one of songs I love:

K is for kids: None yet, but someday!

L is for current location: Outside of Atlanta, Georgia in my lovely hotel room. Winking smile


M is for the most recent way you spent money: Shopping … see above!!

N is for something you need: Hmm a job would be nice.  And a house. Winking smile

O is for occupation: Normally … school psychologist.  Currently … desperate househotel wife!

P is for pet peeve: There are several I could think of … all revolving around people being inconsiderate.

Q is for a quote: Philippians 4:13 and 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.

R is for random fact about you: I’m left-handed.  And I write funny … evidently I wasn’t taught to correctly write left-handed as a child.  My OT (occupational therapy) friend, Lynn, once told me I have an “awkward, immature pencil grip.”  Awesome!

S is for favorite healthy snack: Peanut butter and banana on … anything, really. Winking smile  And Greek yogurt with granola and fresh fruit.

T is for favorite treat: Anything sweet … cookies, cupcakes, ice cream, you name it!


U is for something that makes you unique: Isn’t this similar to “R??” Geez, I don’t know … ask my husband. Smile with tongue out

V is for favorite vegetable: Carrots, spinach, broccoli, zucchini … but let me tell ya, you won’t see me caressing any veggie like I’m caressing that candy bar!

W is for today’s workout: I have a long(er) run planned … hopefully 9 miles!

X is for X-rays you’ve had: A young boy with autism stepped on my foot once (unintentionally!) and I had to get x-rays on my pinky toe haha.  Don’t worry, folks, I survived.

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Um … the piece of German chocolate cake I ate after dinner? Angel

Z is for your time zone: Eastern .. hasn’t ever changed, despite living in 4 different states!


Whew, OK, if you actually read all of that, you are a trooper!  We will now be BFF forever, mmm-k? Winking smile


Question for ya …

Whatcha doing this weekend?

Brandon and I are hopefully visiting a winery.  Fingers crossed the weather cooperates!

Answer letters: C (Craving), H (Hometown), and Y (Yesterday’s highlight) for me!!

  2. Northern Girl_Southern Wife (Alissa)

    Glad things are going well! The winery sounds really fun – we’ve always wanted to do something like that but never want to make the two hour drive to one!

    As far as the “C” “H” and “Y”:
    C: Cream cheese (odd, I know)
    H: The big EC!
    Y: The bet my husband and I made on our March Madness brackets! If I win I get a whole Saturday of him doing anything I want! And of course, vice verse :)

    We stayed at a Residence Inn on Wed. night–exactly like your pics! It was nice and big, way better than a typical room. Girl, don’t complain! Enjoy it! Someday you’ll be stuck at home with 2 screaming kids and desperately dream of a night alone with your hubby in a hotel room! LOL! :)

      I’m not complaining … I guess I just feel a little guilty sitting around haha. I actually have applied for jobs at Lifetime Fitness and Starbucks, but I don’t even know if they’ll want me when they see I’m a school psych! They might think I’m nuts! ;)

    • Jen B

      I second that about the two screaming kids part! They’re fun and id never trade them for anyhing, but wow, the grass is always greener! Hah.

    I’m craving ice cream/froyo too! I must get it in this weekend before that new eating plan starts on Monday. :)

    Daniel and I are going out to eat sushi with some friends tonight and then going to see Fiddler on the Roof, which is being put on by the kids from my school at a local theater. Tomorrow, I have a zumbathon from 9:30-11:30 then no other real plans. Sunday is busy with church, food prep and grocery shopping, and two bridal showers to attend. Whew! Good thing we’re on spring break next week!

      The North Pole?? How did I miss that? That’s so cool!!

  11. Cinnamon @ eatpraytri

    I am looking forward to having some time off as well when we have to move. It can’t get here soon enough! You need to find a fro-yo place stat. I need to know where the closest one is at all times just in case the urge hits me.
    I just got some of those Old Navy bogo shirts too!!
    I have my ABC’s post waiting in the wings, so don’t worry you aren’t the last one to post it yet!!

  13. Yellow Haired Girl

    I am incredibly impressed by the wide range of colors you purchased … and so incredibly unimpressed by the food you consider gross. HOW can you hate feta cheese?! And olives?! You really narrow down a menu at a Greek restaurant, hey? :)
    Yellow Haired Girl recently posted..By The NumbersMy Profile

    • notsodomesticated

      Haha yes, I rarely eat at Greek restaurants. ;)

  14. Corinne

    Love the survey! C – craving the veggie pizza in the oven right now, H – bergen county, new jersey! and Y – yesterday’s highlight was trying on my wedding dress for the first time! Fitting 1 complete! So excited only 100 days left!
    Oh and FYI – the chicken curry turned out horrible!! I was right but will try a different recipe next time. Happy Friday!

      Awww Corinne! I feel your pain, girl! Sorry it didn’t turn out well!! :(

  15. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance

    Yes! That Corinthians verse is one of my favorites!

    And WHAT!? NO OLIVES OR COTTAGE CHEESE!?! I guess when we eventually do meet in person, I can’t make you that olive cottage cheese pie that I was banking on.

    Gosh darn.

      Is it really your favorite?? That’s MY favorite! It’s one of the first I memorized when I started walking with Him. So cool! :)

  16. Melody

    Hope you find a house soon! Dustin and I are with you on the G section! (G is for gross food: Cottage cheese, feta cheese, blue cheese … and olives.)….couldn’t agree more!

    • notsodomesticated

      Thanks, Melody!! I hope you guys are doing well. :) Glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like those foods. I know a lot of people think I’m crazy! ;)

  17. Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy

    I’m left-handed too! I love feta cheese and olives though…they’re so good on Greek salad!

  19. Avery @ YoungAspirations

    Hi Kristen! I just found your blog and I’ve already enjoyed it so much! Seems like we have a lot in common. My fiance and I are (almost college graduates) from Clemson, so not too far from Atlanta! Sounds like that was a big change from Ohio. Hope you are enjoying it! Looking forward to reading in the future! :)

    • notsodomesticated

      Hi Avery! Thanks for writing! I definitely look forward to getting to know you better! :)

    • notsodomesticated

      I don’t know if it’s “fro yo” from Chick Fil A … they call it “ice dream.” I have no idea what that means. But it was really good! ;)
