There was a little change in the plan this afternoon due to a doctor appointment that my niece ended up having to go to. I went down to watch my buddy Rocco but ended up having to bring him back to my house so my sis could tend to her other kiddo. He was so excited to get to come over to Auntie’s house. He really digs it here. His birthday is next month and when my sissy asked him where he wants to have his party he said “at Auntie Sammie’s house”. I’m cool, what can I say :)
My little guys had a blast with all of D’s toys. They made a fort using a Lightning McQueen garage.
I snuck in for some photos. These are for you mom.
My mommy reads my blog and is always asking for pictures of her other grandchildren. Unfortunately my niece was not here, sorry Mimi. For all you newbies – my mom lives in Maine (7 hours away) and doesn’t see the kiddies often.
Here are my little goobers.
They wanted to take a picture of me peeking in on their fun.
I had a great day hanging with the guys.
Now on to the food. I ended up eating an apple this afternoon. Yes I did eat the Pure Bar too and it was mighty fudgy. If you haven’t tried them yet you MUST!!!
For dinner I made a salad – lettuce, red pepper, zucchini, cottage cheese, lots of spices (cumin, curry, cardamom, cinnamon, turmeric and coriander) and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. All those flavors really tasted so refreshing.
I was also in the mood for a good old PB & J. I used Trader Joe’s reduced sugar strawberry preserves and Trader Joe's unsalted PB on my gluten free bread.
My dessert included some dark chocolate that my honey bought me from Whole Foods that is SOY FREE. It tasted delicious with my dried fruit combo and raw cashews. The chocolate is a variety that is infused with green tea. I am normally not a fan of green tea but this bar is extremely tasty.
I managed to fit in an hour of Yoga for Runners from Yoga Download this evening after D was is la-la land. Man it has been way too long since I did my favorite class. It felt so good to stretch and warm up my muscles.
Now I am ready to hit the hay. Tomorrow is a babysitting day at the gym so I will see you after lunch. Have a great night.
