All Grown Up

in All Posts

This morning, I snacked on a Fruition bar.  I really like these!

And for lunch, I made a bean, kale, and cheese wrap:

A side of dried apples:

And one of the vegan chocolate chip and nut cookies that Nina baked for the Team in Training Bake Sale at the Healthy Living Summit.

I haven’t had a chance to deposit the cash raised from the event to my TNT fund, but we raised more than $650 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!

Again – thanks to everyone who baked for the sale AND everyone who donated the LLS!   It blows me away that other bloggers and readers are so generous.  LLS and Team in Training are great organizations, and I really appreciate your help with fundraising!

 

In other news….

 

Maggie turned 5 on Saturday.  Doesn’t she look older and wiser?

James is still 3.  His birthday is on January 15.

When is your birthday and how old are you?  I was born on April 26 and I’m 25.  Let’s see if we can find some birthday twins!

    Those fruition bars look delish! And I love your little doggies….they remind me so much of our pup — but she's rescued so i have no idea on her breed!
    I'm a February 24th bday, and I'm 27 šŸ™‚

  • Sugar & Spice August 17, 2009, 10:14 am

  • Katelyn August 17, 2009, 10:15 am

    Hey Caitlin – this was too weird to pass by. I, too, am named Katelyn and my birthday is April 26! Even weirder, my husband's birthay is also April 26. We're older than you, though – I hit 30 this year and Steve celebrated his 33rd. I came here from Jenna's blog and love your philosophies – keep up the great work!

  • Shannon (The Daily Balance) August 17, 2009, 10:15 am

  • Bernadette August 17, 2009, 10:16 am

    Well Nina and I are almost twins…(but I'm just a 'few' years older) I'm March 12th and am 44 years old. I have to tell you that I discovered your blog a couple weeks ago and am completely addicted!! I check it numerous times throughout the day and am getting so much good info from it. I'm what you'd call a late bloomer-and think of myself as delayed onset athlete!! Keep up the good work and when I visit the east coast next month (from california) I'll be posting operation beautiful notes along the way!!! xoxo

  • Whitney@whitsgettingfit August 17, 2009, 10:16 am
