Disney Princess for a Day

I felt like a Disney Princess today! Disney lets you into the park for FREE on your birthday, plus you get a fun pin that says "It's My Birthday!" and all the cast members wish you a happy birthday.  :)  We got hooked up with fast entrances to all the rides as well, and we [...]


Breakfast in Bed

A better birthday cake: First Green Monster of the 25th Year!   The Husband has a traditional of making me breakfast in bed every year for my birthday. :)  Usually, I wake up first and am in charge of breakfast, so it's a really sweet change, and I appreciate the effort it takes: Two eggs [...]


One Last Day of Being 24

We went to the Relax Grille at downtown Orlando tonight.  The best part of the outside lakeside cafe is the awesome atmosphere. I had two of these Key West wheat beers (yea, I'm drogging (= drunk blogging). The table (me, Husband, our friend Harry, and my brother in law Nick) split these nachos: And my [...]


Shopping is My Cardio

I'm glad I gave 1/2 my lunch wrap to the Husband because not 10 minutes after I posted, there was a knock at the door and this was delivered: An edible bouquet from my BFF Sarah! She knows me SO well.  I had a few pieces of fruit and several of these chocolate strawberries: I [...]


Productive Saturday Morning

Good morning!  I've been up since 5 AM preparing for a series of meetings I had this morning about the holistic clinic and online shop.   I started with coffee (and Meghann's blog): And after about an hour of prep work, I ate a delightful breakfast: Including the same Green Monster as yesterday.... I'm in [...]


I pretty much put every fruit I could think of into the Excalibur Dehydrator this afternoon.  Below are strawberries, apples, pineapples, and plums. And here are kiwi slices and bananas.  Yum! It takes hours for stuff to dehydrate, so I'll check on everything in the morning.   In other news (man, I've been getting some [...]


Look how I found Maggie sleeping this afternoon: Haha! Her body was jammed into the crack of the couch.  Don't worry, I freed her!   Lunch was AMAZING today!  Of course, I had to dig into the special shipment of Amy's Kitchen products I received this morning.  Although all the products look tasty, I wanted [...]


Dehydrator Help!

Look what came in the mail for me today:   Squeeeeeeeeeeal!  An Excalibur Dehydrator! THANK YOU, Excalibur!  I know these babies are the top of the line dehydrators, and I cannot wait to try it out!   It even came with a "dehydrator cookbook!" I flipped through the book and it is filled with great [...]


Woof Into My Office, Please.

Good morning!  I have Fridays off from my full-time job, and that means the entire day is dedicated to the online holistic store.  But I refused to be stuck inside unnecessarily, so on Fridays I move to my favorite "office": The dog park!  :)   My interns: (Yes, my dogs are so pampered that I [...]


Ditching Class

Evening! I am so relieved that its Thursday.  Aren't you? :)   Running Hiatus Workout #7   I decided to rush to a 6:45 spin class.  One of the things I miss about running is that sweaty, gross, smelly feeling.  Sweat = hard work in my mind! :)    I stayed for 45 minutes of [...]
