Stonyfield Rocks

The stray cat Mitch (I think his new name is Laser) was adopted by Megan’s BFF Debbie and her boyfriend.

Bye Mitch!  I’ll miss you!  šŸ™‚

 

I got home super early today from work and made the conscious decision NOT to do any more work.  It feels so good to just do nothing and watch So You Think You Can Dance.  Woo hoo!

 

Afternoon snacks included a Kashi TLC bar:

Grapes:

And Pop Chips!

I went to the store of my way home to stock up on Oikos yogurt and was pleasantly surprised to see Stonyfield Organic Milk!  I snatched it right up — I’ve never bought organic milk before but I’m pretty obsessed with Stonyfield so I thought I’d give it a try (and I’m not just saying that because of the Summit!)

For dinner, I used some Oikos to make "mashed sweet potatoes."

And on the side, I had two cups of Vegetable soup from Wolfgang Puck.  I wasn’t feeling very hungry and I have a tummy ache, so this was just what I was craving!  But I only ate half of the potatoes in the end.

Plus, cherries for dessert.

Off to go enjoy "me time"!  šŸ™‚ I’m pretty pumped TO DO NOTHING AT ALL!  Somewhere, pigs are flying….

FYI for those of you who are attending the Summit:  we have posted a tentative schedule to help you with travel plans (a more detailed schedule is forthcoming).  The Cocktail Party and Conference are ticket-only events, but we would love to see other people for the Saturday evening and Sunday events!

    awww I'm so glad the kitty was adopted! That is very exciting šŸ™‚ I LOVE stonyfield's organic milk! I wish it wasn't so darn expensive. I can get a gallon of regular publix milk for less money than a half of stonyfield's šŸ™ I try to mix it up and get one week of regular and one week or organic.

    Good for you! I am so thrilled to see that you have a "ME" night. It makes my heart happy to see that you are taking a break! šŸ™‚

    I love Stoneyfeild. The Oikos yogurt has changed my life and complete take on yogurt! I will NEVER go back to dannon ever! šŸ™‚

    Have a fabulous evening my dear.

    Love the happy ending for Mitch/Laser! Enjoy the rest of your "me" night.

    Organic milk tastes SO MUCH BETTER!

    So glad the kitty got adopted!

    I honestly don't think I've ever had organic milk, which is kind of surprising. I guess the cost has just always kept me away. I'll have to look out for it on sale or splurge!

    Yay! I'm glad that kitty found a home!

    I'm definitely buying some stonyfield's milk. They sent me coupons to try Oikos about a month ago and now I'm hooked.

    I hope the cat really was a stray, our cat disappeared once for two weeks, we didnt see one sight of her. The people up above us had her, thought she was a stray! Even though we had her for many years!

    I'm surprised you don't buy organic milk, since it's one of the few animal products you eat now. Regular milk comes from cows that are shot with numerous hormones and antibiotics, and going organic makes a huge difference in the taste of milk as well. I encourage you to go with organic milk from now on! It's worth the extra expense for your body!

    Well done on finding Mitch a home so quickly! Never thought of having yoghurt in mashed sweet potato – yum!

  • Paige@ Running Around Normal July 17, 2009, 3:41 am

    That's great you're getting in some "me time." I've gotta have at least a few minutes every day or I'd go insane! So so happy Mitch was adopted, too!

    sandy – agreed – i've put up notes to just be sure and posted an ad on craigslist.

    anon – totally agree!

    I'm so glad Mitch found a home!!

    That's so wonderful that the kitty was adopted! Wow, you've never had organic milk before? You're going to love it! I did a taste test as part of a nutrition class in college once . . . we compared organic to regular milk, and it's so much creamier and sweeter and just better! Enjoy!

  • Jess July 17, 2009, 8:17 am

    Good for you Caitlin! Yay for SYTYCD. Love it! Kayla is my current fave!

  • seesaraheat July 17, 2009, 11:20 am

    Yummy mashed sweet potatoes! I've wanted to try that organic milk but my Whole Foods does not have it yet, I even have a coupon! Sarah from Stonyfield told me where to get it but I can't remember now, going to have to check my Twitter šŸ˜‰
