Ha! Not that kind of Peep show, silly…..I’m talkin’ marshmallow critters here! 🙂

"Just Hatched" (Homemade Marshmallow Chick in Nest) Nikon D300, F/5.6, 1/60s, ISO 500

Earlier this week, I tried my hand at homemade marshmallow chicks and I must say, they were pretty easy and oh-so-cute! (Yummy, too).

I’m hoping these little guys will help to keep my spirits up while I wait impatiently for my broken foot to heal. (Sugar heals all wounds, right? 😉 )

Happy Easter, everyone! I wish you all good health and much happiness! 🙂

So, just 10 weeks into my workout commitment and I’ve hit a stumbling block.


Well, more accurately, I’ve stumbled upon some very uneven blocks resulting in a broken foot. A ‘left 5th metatarsal base break’ (aka Jones Break) to be exact.


I’ve never broken a bone before and, judging by the amount of pain, swelling and bruising, I would prefer this to be my first and last time doing so.

Fortunately, no cast or surgery is required but I am now sporting the most lovely black immobilization ‘boot’ accessorized by a pair of aluminum crutches. (Didn’t you hear?? This look was all the rage on the Paris runways…the ‘must haves’ for spring). 😉 ) 

I have to admit the ‘boot’ and crutches are indeed a much better solution than hopping around on one foot – something I did quite a lot of this morning prior to my visit with the very nice orthopedist. 🙂

I don’t plan on being down for long but only time will tell.

If the universe is trying to tell me to ‘slow down’, message received.

Yeah, this sucks.

“Motivation” (Marc Jacobs Swimsuit) Nikon D300, 36mm, F/4.2, 1/20s, ISO 640

Whenever I don’t quite feel like exercising, all I need is this little reminder that summer is a mere 10 weeks away…
