So much rain today. The good news is that everything is starting to look mighty green. But the bad news is that there is so much rain.


This was the only chance I got to step outside today without getting drenched…I think it was about 6:30am. Adrienne woke up bright and early today. Like 4am early. However, the cheery bowl of fresh pineapple for breakfast helped make the wee morning hour substantially more tolerable. I ate it as the little one napped on my lap.

This face makes everything more tolerable.

What a snuggle bug.

I also had some toast later in the morning.


a heck-of-a sandwich: multigrain bread, avocado, spinach, bean sprouts, turkey muenster cheese, Dijon mustard

(Sidenote: I really like the heels of the bread. It makes a sandwich feel heartier. Anyone out there in agreement??)


roasted sweet potato rounds with bbq sauce

This bbq sauce…which is delicious.

Dinner was on the light side, but dessert was not. As part of Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker Program, I received a coupon for free a box of free Magnum Ice Cream bars a few weeks ago. (Actually, I’m embarrassed to say it’s been almost a month.) But I did get to the store today (despite the rain!) and picked myself up a box.

Oh my word. Delicious. And at 380 calories a pop…they better be.

decadent, rich, and oh-so-chocolaty – I kind of wanted to inhale the entire box.

And as a non-food highlight to my day, I got this card in the mail today from Holly – The Healthy Everythingtarian.

Who doesn’t love getting real mail?? Thanks, Holly!
