Morning! I’ve got to make this snappy because the fish are already bitin’ and I don’t want to miss it! πŸ™‚


We went bowling last night, which always leads to pitchers of beer.  For Sarah, here is one of the circa-1980 murals:


Do you know how many times I’ve bowled before realizing that mural is a galaxy of pins and balls? Weird.


As mentioned, the beer was in full force.  We ordered a few pitchers of Yuengling.


Times two.  Yes, I have to write my name on my cup.  Our cups always get confused while bowling and I really hate drinking after other people (ewww, beer backwash!).


The beer weakened my defenses to this:


‘The five of us shared this, but I’m pretty sure I ate most of it.  I refused to flip it over and look at the nutritionals…. sometimes, you just need to enjoy some crappy candy.  Know what I mean?


I bowled horribly — a 70, and 85, and a 98!  Bletch.


So, obviously I’m not feeling *my best* this morning.  Nothing that a bowl of oatmeal and coffee can’t cure!


My oatmeal contained:


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 sliced banana
  • Toppings:  granola and coconut


I haven’t done today’s 30 Day Shred yet.  I’m saving it until we get back from fishing…. wait til you see the spot we go fishing at!  It’s so beautiful, like a Florida postcard!


Have a great morning.


We’re always discussing healthy food, so let’s talk CANDY.  I love me some good candy every now and then…. but I think my favorite is Dove Dark ChocolateWhat’s your favorite candy treat?

    this is really weird but i have an obsession with old fashioned candy, like neccos,skybarrs, and bb bats I just love it! Dark chcolate is definetly a favorite!

  • Yasmin March 7, 2009, 6:17 am

    I would go with any typed of Godiva chocolate but I also love the flavored jelly bellies Toasted Marshmallow and Buttered Popcorn are my faves.

  • VeggieGirl March 7, 2009, 6:20 am

  • Mica March 7, 2009, 6:29 am

    I cannot wait to see the pictures! Florida sights make me so happy. πŸ™‚

    Have a great day!

  • Lisa March 7, 2009, 6:30 am

    Hi, I’ve been following your blog for a while now. It is so cute and your race weekend looked like sooooo much fun! In response to your question I don’t know if I could pick just one favorite candy. But at those bulk bin candy stores they have these blue coke bottle shaped sour candies. And I do love them. Look forward to these beautiful Florida pictures you promise. I live up in Boston. And maybe we’ll see your first catch later too!-Lisa D.

  • greendogwine March 7, 2009, 6:36 am

    I love Yuenling! It’s not sold most places in Cleveland – we are lucky if we can find it on draft somewhere!

  • Michelle March 7, 2009, 6:43 am

    Hey Caitlin! Sounds like you had a great time last night! πŸ™‚ Bowling is a lotta fun!

    Well my favorite splurge candies are either Resces Peanut Butter Cups or M&Ms (preferably peanut, but I don't discriminate haha) I loooove chocolate, especially dark!

    Happy Saturday!


  • Lindsay March 7, 2009, 6:50 am

    My favorite candy is green and blacks dark chocolate. I love fishing!!

  • Matt March 7, 2009, 6:57 am

    Gonna have to go with Snickers! Mmmm…

  • Julie March 7, 2009, 7:00 am

    I love fruity candy…skittles, starburst, sweedish fish and life savers. I like the tropical flavors, it makes me feel exotic while stuffing my face.

    I love yuenling! My ex’s roommate was from PA and brought home cases whenever he visited. Sadly, they do not sell it in Boston. Unless another Bostonian knows of a place where I can get some…anyone??

  • jenngirl March 7, 2009, 7:17 am

    Oats are the BEST hangover cure πŸ™‚

    I LOVE dark chocolate, but when it comes to candy, any type of Reese’s can’t be beat!

  • emilydh211 March 7, 2009, 7:19 am

    I love Dove Dark Chocolate too…especially because they have a little fortune inside of them! haha

  • Colleen March 7, 2009, 7:32 am

    I love the Reese’s eggs that are out for Easter and Cadbury ANYTHING!

  • Nicole March 7, 2009, 7:34 am

    Hmmm… my favorite candy.. chocolate covered anything, peanut butter cups, and I used to LOVE snickers! I have got to make a vegan version soon..

  • Erin March 7, 2009, 7:38 am

    I love all chocolate things, like Dove, but for a truly rare candy experience I LOVE something gummy.

  • Amanda @ Fake Ginger March 7, 2009, 7:39 am

    I have been bowling in so long! I hope you had fun!

    My favorite candy… probably Almond Joy. I love the chocolate coconut combination!

  • Megan March 7, 2009, 8:02 am

    I’m terrible at bowling! My favorite candy treat is definitely dark chocolate covered dried cherries!! I can’t have them around my apartment because I would be eating them all the time, but they’re delicious!

  • Emily March 7, 2009, 8:07 am

    Crappy candy is essential sometimes. Personally, I like Bit O Honey. πŸ™‚

    I’m a horrible bowler. My scores would give yours world champion status.

  • katie m March 7, 2009, 8:25 am

    Jelly Belly jelly beans are my weakness! There are only a few flavors that I don’t like (black licorice, cantaloupe), but the caramel apple, wild blackberry, strawberry cheesecake, and pear are my favorites.

  • Kelly March 7, 2009, 8:29 am

    I love that you took your camera to the bowling alley to take pics of the beer and candy. LOL

    My favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. But this time of year they beome irresistable because they make them into big eggs for Easter. Self control? Unlikely.

  • Jewels March 7, 2009, 8:35 am

    haha i love bowling-although i still never broke 100. my fave candy=chocolate or yogurt covered nuts

  • elise March 7, 2009, 8:43 am

    carob covered raisins – OBV!

  • Mara @ What's For Dinner? March 7, 2009, 9:01 am

    98 is higher than I’ve EVER scored in non-bumper bowling!! I’m impressed!
    I’m jealous of that beer… my fiance brought some back from Philly last year and it was awesome, and its not here yet!

  • Elina March 7, 2009, 9:04 am

    MMm, candy. I think my favorite is sneakers king sized bar. I don’t have to eat the whole giganto bar (even though I could and have in the past) but it’s something about how high it is, that is just way better than the regular sized one – it’s more “juicy” or something. Haha. It’s crazy loaded with sugar so it’s definitely an indulgence.

  • Haleigh March 7, 2009, 9:08 am

    My favorite candy is definitely lâsgodis!! Ahh, Swedish candy is just amazing! Swedes sure do love their candy though. They have an aisle full of candy that you can pick out different kinds that you like and pick out exactly how much you want.

  • kilax March 7, 2009, 9:17 am

    I love Dove Dark Chocolate too. I think it’s the best dark chocolate! I like the dove caramels too.

    I always laugh when we go to a bowling alley with the old murals! It reminds me of my middle school days!

  • Rose March 7, 2009, 10:00 am

    I’m a sucker for anything Dove related.

    Looks like bowling was fun πŸ™‚

  • Jen March 7, 2009, 10:02 am

    Mmm, Reeses PB cups, Cadburry Eggs, Hershey’s Kisses with almonds…all things I almost never, ever buy because I don’t want to know what the ingredients in them are! Tis the season for cadburry eggs, though, so I’m sure I’ll break down and have one (or six)

  • Run Saraah March 7, 2009, 10:31 am

    I love any Dark Chocolate…and Smarties and M&Ms…so good!

  • Sarah (lovINmytummy) March 7, 2009, 11:03 am

    I LOVE YOU!!! That mural is awesome. I’m going to come commission someone to paint my house in bitchin’ 80s art!

    Since you asked, I love Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. I think they put crack cocaine in the peanut butter.

  • Thinspired March 7, 2009, 11:26 am

    I’m a sucker for Starbursts, too…but a few times a year I love a good Snickers too πŸ™‚

  • Red Head, Yellow Dog March 7, 2009, 12:37 pm

    I love m&ms! The dark chocolate ones are the best.

  • TinaGirl March 7, 2009, 4:29 pm

    I love love love anything dark chocolate!

  • Dori March 7, 2009, 6:03 pm

    Peanut butter Twix!

  • MyRunningJourney March 9, 2009, 8:50 am

    Tie between snickers and reese’s cups!
