A Great Gift Idea

I came across this on line today and what a super gift idea!  You have to see the site because they offer a variety of different boxes.  The cool part is that the recipient gets to ultimately choose his/her own gift! 


vivabox I have a few people in mind, but if you recall, I was out most of the day Wednesday and pretty much completed the shopping.  

It is a great idea though…ummm, is that a Joanne hint?

Happy Hour Plans

Ted and I are going to check out Grimaldi’s as they have a happy hour with munchies today. 

We did get a head start at home.  It’s referred to as our “Get Ready and Go Vino”.  happy-hour-001  This is the bottle Jackie and Rock gave us.  It’s very nice. It’s an earthy wine that has a lingering finish. It has good “legs” as well.  It is a blend of 40% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 30% Cabernet Sauvinon. 

It’s time to hit the restaurant road. Recap tomorrow after Shane and I get back from our run.  We’re going for a minimum of 7 miles tomorrow. Depends on the weather of course.  Have a great night!

Wow! What a surprise.  I opened up to do this post and the whole look of the page is different.  Hey Guys! I REALLY like it!

This morning, yes, I did get up and work the missed chest work out from earlier in week.  But instead of doing any  warm up aerobics, I went right to weights for 40 minutes. I have to say it was only actually 30 minutes because I was foolin’ around, looking at books, la-de-da-ing it. Shane and I had a great jog/walk though. We jogged about 2.5 miles and walked 2.25 miles. 

Now for the review on the new oats.  Remember last nights post?   So I talked Ted into trying them with me and made a double batch using 1/3 cup dry per person. They do look a bit thicker and slightly darker than average oats.

breakfast-0012 I added a peeled pear, 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1 TBS organic unsweetened reduced fat coconut.


1 TBS Raisins.  I separated some oats for Ted and then added 2 TBS soy milk and 1 tsp pure maple syrup. The result from both sides:

Good… very tasty.  Not sure the difference is worth the bigger difference in price but we’ll enjoy the 2 boxes I ordered for a while.

To go with the oats, I made a VPX shake with 2 strawberries and 1/4 cup of FUZE.   


That’s the early morning report, except ….did you know…..Today is Walt Disney’s Birthday (1901) and also…..HAPPY BIRTHDAY,SAMMY D!
