I managed to go to bed at 10:45 (only 30 minutes later than my goal!), but when I woke up at 6:30, all I could do was stare blankly at the kitchen counter. I KNEW I had thought of a really fun breakfast, but I couldn’t remember what it was! It was so frustrating.
I decided to make myself a regular old bowl of oatmeal (1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 skim milk, 1 sliced banana, and 1/8 cup of Grape nuts, sprinkled on top). JUST as my oats begun to bowl, I remember the fun breakfast idea! Oh well, it will have to wait until tomorrow.
Last night on my run, I had a great idea (well, maybe). I tend to have a lot of ideas on runs, but sometimes I reconsider them and they just seem lame. Maybe the endorphins make my ideas sound better on runs? 🙂
Anyways, we’re trying to think of favors to give away to our guests, but I don’t want them to be (1) lame or (2) a waste of money. As in, I don’t want to spend a lot of cash on something people would throw away (I hate waste!). So, I was thinking of personalized water bottles filled with candy. It would be earth-friendly, speak to our mutual love of fitness, and hopefully be something that people could use and enjoy for a long time. (Don’t worry, I won’t get anything with the evil #3 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC); #6 Polystyrene (PS); or #7 Polycarbonate stamped on the bottom!) What do you think?
Speaking of water bottles, did you know that between 25 and 40 percent of bottled water comes from the U.S. municipal water supplies. (Bottling companies buy the water and filter it, and some add minerals.) That’s not really a bad thing: The Environmental Protection Agency oversees municipal water quality, while the Food and Drug Administration monitors bottled water; in some cases, EPA codes are more stringent. So, when water bottles boast their water comes from pristine springs or streams on top of mountains, THINK TWICE! 🙂
