And...A Few More Favorites

I'm working on going through approximately one million photos so I can finally actually post about something crafty (did you know this is supposed to be a craft blog?) In the meantime, to keep this blog a-rollin', I'm going to share a few more favorites. I know you like it.

1) I just finished this book and I LOOOVED it. Read it. Did that convince you?

2) The summer heat is not a favorite. The summer produce is a favorite. The next many months are going to be a fiery furnace, but if it means we get delicious veggies out of the deal then it'll be worth the general misery.

3) My kickboxing and boot camp classes! I have never liked exercising. Actually, that's not accurate -- I've always DETESTED exercising. The feeling of my heart beating fast, being out of breath and sweating was my worst nightmare. But something has changed. Maybe it's the motivation I'm getting from seeing and feeling my body getting stronger. Maybe it's because I have so much more energy during the day. Maybe I've brainwashed myself. Whatever it is, I love it and I'm stoked. I actually look forward to my classes and that, my dears, is truly saying something.

4) Any and all news relating to this:

5) The Greek Style Fig Yogurt from Trader Joe's has been a passion of mine for about the past year. I had it for breakfast every single morning for months. And then when I got a little tired of that, I just had it for a snack or dessert at least a few times per week. It's been a good old stand-by and we had some really great times together.

Recently, however, I have not been able to find it in TJs. They had the honey and the apricot-mango but there was no sign of either the fig nor the strawberry (another favorite). I feared the worst.


I finally asked the dude at the desk and he confirmed that it has indeed been discontinued. I'm so distraught. How could TJ do this to me?

I feel so betrayed.

I've been wanting to read Life of Pi for a long time now! I think you convinced me! You're just so persuasive. :)

WHAT? I was wondering why I couldn't find it. AAAAAAaaaack! What the heck? That was the best flavor!

I swear, TJ's always discontinues the best stuff. Bah. I guess those of us with superb taste are just the minority.

And I'm glad you like Life of Pi.

And I"m glad you posted the New Moon pic. Sooooo excited.

I too have been wanting to read that book... my Aunt recommended it to me 2 years ago. Needless to say, it's still on my ever-growing reading list. Maybe now that I'll have a babe to nurse, I'll have some "down time" to read a little :) ahhhh.

I never read New Moon, but I am anxious to see the movie. It has caught my curiosity.

Your beautiful produce looks so delicious!
