Boring breakfast; fun product review!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- Greek yogurt
- Chia seeds
Another yogurt mess might be boring to look it, but it sure tasted yummy. 🙂
Pride Is Forever
It was fun to look back at all my medals, but I was a little sad that they were relegated to a cardboard box in my attic. I asked if anyone had suggestions on how I could display the medals in a classy, organized way.
Erin read about my plight and suggested I check out Allied Steel’s medal displays. I was immediately enthralled! I’ve never seen medal holders so beautiful and sleek. Even though it was a bit pricey (and it turns out delivery took 3 weeks to boot; however, it’s a small American company so it was worth the wait), I ordered the Pride is Forever medal holder (“pain is temporary, quitting is forever!” is one of my mantras).
I hung up my medals in the space between our living room and kitchen.
Very high-quality construction. I like how there’s room to grow on the holder, too. I could squish the ribbons together and probably hang up twice as many medals (baw-hahaha!). Also, I like how the sleek design hides the gap on the steel where you insert the ribbons. Very snazzy. And a fun conversation piece!

All in all – a great product! I think this would be an excellent holiday present (here’s my other gift suggestions) for the active person in your life (or for yourself!).
