Good afternoon! It’s a beautiful, sunny Saturday here in Southeastern Wisconsin. Probably nothing like the weather they are experiencing on the East Coast right now.
After clocking out of work at 12:05 a.m. and not getting to sleep until about 1 a.m., I slept in this morning, meditated, and went for a long walk with Craig. My legs were really sore from walking about 5 miles at work last night, but I think the walk actually helped a lot.
I really wanted to make it to the Eat Local Resource Fair at the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee, but walking around at a fair and being so tired after work last night didn’t sound like it would mix too well. Plus, I didn’t want to feel so rushed today.
So instead, I painted my nails this morning.
Eek, my nails/cuticles look like they need a proper manicure. Hmm…maybe on my b-day on Wednesday?
Got excited to check out the package I received yesterday.
I won some Cascal fermented soda from Jessica at Healthy Living in America’s Dairyland. Never tried it before, but I will definitely let you all know how it is or you can head over to Jessica’s site to check out her opinion.
The sodas came in this adorable lunch bag!
Lots of yummy flavors to try out!
Then we went to Barnes and Noble to get my nephew a gift card. I’m glad he is getting into reading and I want to encourage it with this gift card. I definitely was very into reading at his age (going into 2nd grade) and now I am a lifelong reader. It also helped my spelling skills!
And to the grocery store to pick up some good deals.
I picked up two Protein Plus PowerBars that ended up being totally free with coupons I found in Women’s Health magazine.
I used a $1.50 off coupon for some Seattle’s Best coffee.
And I used one of my free Chobani coupons the company sent after I had a bad experience with a raspberry flavored yogurt a couple of weeks ago. Great customer service on Chobani’s part–I was impressed. Now I get to have one of my favorite flavors, pomegranate, for lunch this week.
I’m quickly writing this post while watching America’s Test Kitchen. It’s an episode focused on chicken, which is sort of grossing me out. I still like learning things from the show though, even when it is very meat based cooking featured most of the time.
We’re off to a cookout for my nephew’s 8th b-day party this afternoon! Can’t wait to sit outside and enjoy a hamburger. I think this flexitarian is actually going to have a burger and hope it doesn’t affect my stomach. I have been craving meat all week.
Hope your weekend has been relaxing and fun so far!
