Fat Tuesday Tidbits

Yesterday as a pretty darn good day for a Monday! Whoulda thunk it?  The first thing that made it good was a got a present package in the mail. I recently won a giveaway from Jo over at The Tortoise (formerly 282.5) I was SO excited to win! I got to pick out what I wanted from Cathe.com and I chose a pink yoga mat and 2 lb. hand weights.

I had a yoga mat that I got with my Wii accessories but Dave took that one over so now I have my "own" mat. I don't think he will be inclined to use my pink mat ;-) It also matches my pink gym bag so it will be good for taking to the gym for Yoga/Pilates classes if I ever went.  The hand weights will come in handy for walking. Once the weather improves a little, I want to resume our morning walks. I wanted to try out my new mat so I did some stretching on it. I can only do Yoga in the morning (empty tummy) I ended up doing some dancing to the Just Dance DVD. 

We had a nice dinner too. Steak, oven roasted red potatoes and green beans. I don't eat red meat much anymore, maybe twice a month, so Dave looks forward to our beef meals. It isn't that I don't like it but I have basically weaned it from my meal selections.  While I was preparing dinner, I discovered my little green peppers had sprouted! Hard to tell from the picture but there are 8 sprouts! Speaking of pictures, what size do you think works the best on posts? Should I vary it with the subject or should I just do a standard size. I do know that I need to make my progress pictures standard AND larger. 

The icing on the proverbial cake was that my SIL finished my taxes and I am getting a good refund back! Woohoo!! No plans for spending the funds except for my Smilestone treats like a new Vera Bradley purse and a Spa day but I better get my butt in gear if I plan on getting to any of those goals! Until next time...


  1. Yoga on Wii = awesome idea. Go you! :)

  2. Awesome gifts. :) Smart to pick pink... lol

  3. Oooh look at your sprouts! I hope you are able to get them to grow into mature plants - there's nothing like a fresh pepper.

  4. You asked about the font. I think yours is fine. I've grown to appreciate bloggers who keep their posts on the short side. Your length is perfect. There are so many great blogs out there - you always get to the point and grab my attention. I want to read everybody's!

  5. Enjoy! Glad you like your loot. ;-)

    I told hubby I want to reduce beef consumption at lunch today and he about hit the roof. I told him he didn't need to, but I do. lol

  6. Congrats on your win. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person :)

  7. What an awesome prize! lucky you!
    Have a pretty day!!!!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
