Have you met

O-REX (aka-t-rex)
If you haven't met him, come to our house anytime and he will amaze you with his dinosaur strut and dinosoar growl. In this case, we are headed to the dinosoar museum today.
Happy weekend.

A healthy you

Since i want to be a dietician someday, i thought once and awhile i should do a little health twist on my posts. It would help me keep learning about health and such and hopefully jump start ya'll out there to eat healthy-
So... i will start with the

8 FOOD YOU SHOULD EAT EVERYDAY- (thanks to msn health)

1-SPINACH- rich in omega 3's which helps prevent heart disease and stroke. It also helps build muscle.
hint- throw some spinach in a salad or in a fruit smoothie and you won't even know the difference.

2- Yogurt- helps boost immune system and fight off cancer.
I throw this is my smoothies too.

3- Tomatoes- Helps prevent all sorts of cancers (lung, prostate, skin and stomach)
hint- bright red are best and most nutritious

4- Carrots- enhances eye sight (not a myth), boosts immunity and fights cancer. Also, can reduce the risk of arthritis and asthma
hint- yet another thing i throw in a smoothie....or just eat with ranch.mmmm

5- Blueberries- good for your brain and your heart! Prevents cancer and helps prevent age related memory loss.
HInt- bet you can't guess...yes, i get these frozen adn throw them in my smoothie...also fresh ones are delicous on cereal or oatmeal

6- black beans (but i bet any bean will do. i actually LOVE soy beans)- these suckers help build muscle, stimulate the brain and are healthy for your heart.

7- walnuts or almonds- rich in omega 3's. essential fatty acids- (good fat). also fight cancer, build immunity and muscle.
hint- go to costco, buy a big bag of fresh ones (not sugar coated or cooked), and eat a handful a day for a snack. That is all you need.

8- oats- packed with soluble fiber which helps prevents heart disease. although its filled with carbs, but the release of the sugar is slowed by the fiber.
hint- eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and you are full for hours and cleaned out for the day (if you know what i mean).

Flat Tires

Im ready to throw in the towel.
I need some happy enlightenment...

I wish i were here...

There is something about BOSTON that holds a special place in my heart...

could it be the amazingly cute old buildings that have so much history behing them?
Could it be how nice and sophisticated and helpful and fashionable (in a very polo shirt and glasses kind of way) the people on harvard campus are?

Could it be the exciting sounds of the "T" (subway) and feeling super cool and city-ish while riding them?
Is it the rain boots that we picked up at marshalls next to our hotel that i look at and reminis of the nor-eastern storm we braved while there?

Or could it be that just ONE year ago this week i achieved a goal and a dream came true for me in the very place of Boston? Was it the support from the town folks that came out in the rain-sleet & hail just to cheer on the marathoners? Or was it the hugs i got from my family after crossing the finishing line with a huge lump in my throat...and then eating vegetable soup in a warm cafe?
Either way, Boston holds a special place in my heart!

Paint your kitchen "meditation blue". (Don't worry...kids were sleeping to avoid a whole house of meditation blue.)

Too many more cold spring days and i might remodel our whole house and go bankrupt!

Every year my mom and sis like to do a little girls weekend up in the big city (salt lake). We spend the night up in salt lake, eat whatever we want (literally...WHATEVER we want), go watch "let it be" perform by "shut up and dance." Then we complain about how limber and awesome it would be to be a dancer. (definately NOT in our genes). We practice their moves in our hotel room later that night and confirm that dancing is NOT IN OUR GENES. We wake up and head out and hit every consignment shop in salt lake. Abode, Emily Jane, Secondhand Chic are to name a few. Haley usually picks up a few props for photography and i end up with a few random antique items myself. Needless to say, it is a 100% girls weekend (although this year Reggie tagged along...and by the way didn't make a peep the whole weekend). Looking forward to next year girls...and thank you mom!!
