Today’s Happy Note: I now have a beautiful temporary tattoo of a dolphin on my left arm. My life is complete.
Lazy day again! I did a 30 minute ab/cardio workout video this evening with my mom. It was called “Envy Abs” and was actually pretty good. I hadn’t done a lot of the moves before so it was unpredictable.
Today’s adventure? Visiting my best friend from high school and her family’s seven dogs. There were actually eight there today since an extra dog was visiting.
Eddy (I *think* that’s who this one is) says hello! He was trying to eat my…
…coconut milk green tea ice cream! Seeing as today was supposed to be an adventure at all, when we wound up at the grocery store and wandered past the alternative ice cream aisle, I knew it was fate: it was my time to try the coconut milk ice cream. The verdict? Pretty tasty, but with a slightly odd aftertaste. It honestly tasted like a slightly less creamy version of standard green tea ice cream. I would like to try more of their flavors this summer and will probably eat this one again as well!
I know this was kind of a lame adventure; I didn’t take too many pictures. But trust me, being climbed on by eight rambunctious dogs is no picnic. For some reason they all really liked my feet…
I have always been a cat person but I also love dogs. When I have my own apartment I want to get a cat, since I think it will be easier to take care of. I really do like dogs though. I want to name my cat Stanley. Or Ceaser. Or Miller.
Are you a cat or a dog person? Or neither or both?
It’s been raining cats and dogs here today (pun intended) so adventure options were a bit limited. I desperately wanted to run but it was, quite literally, pouring. And it’s supposed to tomorrow as well! At least the plants will be well-watered.
Okay so this was a smoothie made with plain yogurt, water, frozen blackberries, ice, and chocolate amazing meal. It was disgusting. I didn’t want to waster it so I added loads of stevia to mask the flavor but yeah, it had a distinct, unappealing grassy flavor. And I actually like grassy flavor — but this was a bit extreme. I feel like it’s this kind of food that gives health food a bad name. For your own sake, don’t buy it.
I do, however, love all the Amazing Grass bars!
Frozen fruit in cereal is really delicious. Crunchy and cold but also smooth, sweet and satisfying. You should try it! And yes, that is peanut butter in my bowl. I am obsessed with peanut butter — I might even call it my favorite food — and will add it to pretty much everything.
Blondie bars with lots of secret ingredients including cherries — the fruit Michigan is most famous for! With a glass of milk for dipping. These are being sent to a friend but I had to test one or two for quality control purposes, of course. 🙂
I want to make scones this summer. A lot. With fresh berries and warm butter on top. Nom nom nom.
I may have had the most random dinner I’ve ever consumed tonight: a few unpictured bites of steak with a warm apple with cinnamon and pb. Hey, it was exactly what I wanted!
Lots of links to catch you guys up on!
Averie is giving away Naturally Nutty here.

I have a reader (hi Xenia!) who writes a sporting goods/sporting events blog called Be In The Game. Definitely check it out if you need any equipment or are a traditional sports fan!
That’s all for tonight. Maybe I’ll be more fun tomorrow. This rain needs to go away!
