Day 6 from Burbank: Oh yeah,
and I had some fries.

Hubby and I just spent 2 hours in bed.
Not sleeping!
That's 7 years in "people with no kids" time.

Suddenly my husband's biting sarcasm turns into witty humor.
And wow! He's still totally hot!
I've never had to change a light bulb.
I should be nicer to him.
I serve him coffee in bed with a baguette, cream cheese and sliced apple.
We pretend we're in France and have just spent 50 bucks for this room service breakfast.
I look coquettishly at him and say something insulting.
For the next few hours he speaks with a really bad French accent.

Our kid was off playing with our French Au Pair (Dora the Explorer).
Judge me or not. Everyone is smiling and we just don't care.

I didn't do the stairs today.
Who cares?
(That's totally French)

Oh yeah, and I had some fries.

I didn't make the fries from scratch.
They are frozen sweet potato fries from Trader Joe's.

We had some veggies with that and a little bit of baguette.

Laura requested the recipe for

  1. 7 years?!?! wow. you must have dropped down to a size 8 by now. i'm jealous. sounds like a terrific day!

  2. This "diet" just keeps getting better and better...

  3. Since I'm single, now I've got to learn how to make crepes AND get laid every day...great...now just one more thing to add to my list! (By that I mean crepes of course...)

  4. Of course! But believe me I've been married for 12 years, I kind of felt the same way. But don't tell anyone.

  5. Coming over here is like a little aphrodisiac.

  6. do you mean i have to be married to have sex for 2 hours? oh wait, i am... and well, i am ... uh... blushing! love the diet :)

  7. I've got to get my wife on this crazy sexed up, bread eating miracle diet. I'll be happy to provide the baguette (in more ways than one) : )

  8. Oooo La La! Husbands of the world unite!

  9. well.. seeing as im 15, i shall not be taking part in the "getting laid" part of this expedition. but i am however going to be jogging every morning for about an hour..
    oh boy...

  10. Good Girl Madzie!!! Jogging is good. Lot's of jogging! And if you do stairs, remember to walk up them not run. You don't want to hurt your knees. Lot's of stairs.
