Last Friday of July

by Heather on July 30, 2010

Good morning and happy Friday! How are y’all this fine last Friday of July?

Hold the phone…

Last Friday of July?!?!?!

Wasn’t it just January?!

I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun!  Yesterday’s breakfast was another SIAB (smoothie in a bowl).  The smoothie part is 1.5 cups of almond milk, 1 cup frozen strawberries, and 1 cup frozen pineapple:

And that cereal on top is AMAZING!  A week or so ago I was contacted by Attune Foods to see if I would like to test out their new Uncle Sam cereal (this is not my photo…I accidentally ripped the box!  Click on the photo for the source).

Now, I’m not much of a cereal gal, but I figured it never hurts to TRY so I said yes!  I am so glad that I did…this cereal is incredibly tasty, SUPER crunchy, not too sweet, and it packs a great nutritional punch too! Check out the stats from the Attune website:

You get all of that, plus flavor.  AND I’ve seen quite a few bloggers making savory dishes with it as well, which makes me really excited to start cooking with it too!  And so, in conclusion I believe that I have now become an Uncle Sam cereal girl :)  Thanks Annelies and Attune!

Lunch was great and free yesterday! Our landlord at work held a tenant appreciation BBQ lunch…but, since it was with the rest of my company, I did not do the food papparazzi thing.  I also ate way too much, which resulted in a crazy stomachache!  Bad choice, Heather, bad choice. I was feeling pretty gross the rest of the day, so when we got home I did the WillPower Method workout, and then made a healthy pizza for dinner:

This is half of a ball of Whole Foods pizza dough, 1/4 cup of Roasted Garlic marinara, chopped broccoli, sliced mushrooms, sliced zucchini, 1 piece of chicken sausage, and about 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella.  I had half, and it was completely delicious!  Hurray for lunch today! :)


Today’s Marriage Ref isn’t really a referee situation, but I thought I’d see what you guys think!  A couple weeks ago I was talking to my good friend Cherise, who has 4 kiddos.  She was telling me that in a family with kids, there is usually someone who is the “picker,” meaning that person is usually the one who cleans up the boogers, the sleep in kids’ eyes, clips the fingernails and toenails, etc.  Basically this person is usually the one who takes care of all the nastiness that comes with kids.  This cracked me up because in our marriage I KNOW that I will be the “picker”…there’s no way that Nate would voluntarily do all of that stuff (although I know he would to help me out)!

And so, my question is this:  Do you agree that there is typically one “picker”?  And do you think that it would be YOU or your significant other?  If you already have kids make sure you weigh in…I’m super curious to find out what your perspective is!
