• More Happiness

    March 22, 2012

    Hello! :mrgreen:

    Here’s another happy post for ya! In the past 24 hours, these three things put the biggest smile on my face. I hope they bring you some happiness, too!

    For the Pug Lovers

    OMG, pug puppies. I just can’t. The cuteness in this video is overwhelming. All I have to say is pug puppies are the cutest! Thanks for sending me this video, Nick!

    One of These Things Is Not Like The Others

    Draw Something Free

    Draw Something Free is the best game. It provided hours of entertainment and insane amounts of laughter for Mal and me last night. We were almost peeing our pants we were laughing so hard!

    To play, you get a choice of three words and then you draw the word you pick on your iPhone. The person you’re playing against then guesses what it is, but (this is the best part) you get to watch, via replay on your iPhone, how the other person created their drawing, which Mal and I thought was especially hilarious. 

    Ok, maybe we’re are 5 years old, but we find this type of stuff really funny. 

    2k Row

    At CrossFit last night, I achieved a new PR on my 2k row! 8:29! Woohoo! My previous row time was just over 9 minutes, so I’ve made some progress. I also didn’t feel like death when I was rowing, so I think I’m getting the hang of it!
     

    Dinner

    We were supposed to have Mexican Turkey Burgers for dinner last night, but when I got to Whole Foods yesterday, I bought a chicken breast and deli ham, and the turkey burgers never even crossed my mind. (We shop at two different stores each week.) Oops! So much for this week’s meal plan. I guess we’ll have Mexican Turkey Burgers for dinner next week.

    On the menu: salad with grilled chicken, truffle oil, and balsamic vinegar.

    For dessert: a couple of handfuls of butterscotch morsels. Mmm!

     

    Be back soon with breakfast and NRT stuff!

    I have heard that draw something is hilarious! I love silly games like that and think it is definitely a game that I would really like. Now I just have to give it a try! :-) Great job on your rows Tina!

    My friend just introduced me to Draw Something Free and you’re right about it being addictive…I gotta say, drawing P. Diddy isn’t the easiest!

    How cute are the pugs! I love Draw Something… but I go through highs and lows… where I want to play allthe time and get angry when people take to long… to being the person that never plays and likely pisses other people off!

    I’ll have to check out Draw Something, it looks totally fun! I love Words with Friends, but this looks like a good break from that

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scrapped a dinner menu that was planned for a snap decision about what sounded better or easier once I was in the kitchen.

    I downloaded Draw Something last week and I’m addicted! SO FUN[NY] :P Although, I have noticed after “upgrading” there are more words, less repeats, in the $.99 version…

    I cant keep butterscotch chips in the house. One small handful turns into two, and before I know it, I have eaten a whole bag in three days. Ugh.

    Mexican Turkey Burgers sound delicious, but sometimes my body will crave something the instant i see it at the store and I just have to go with it…i.e. crab cakes we found at the market this weekend that looked out of this world! they were so I am really glad we switched it up from the chicken we had planned :-)
    hope you have another very happy day!

    I LOVE draw something! I just played a game a few minutes ago. I got my friend into it and we played something like 20 rounds sitting right next to each other. Quality entertainment right there! I wish the words didn’t repeat so often though…

    Little known fact about me- I was a rower in high school! Therefore, I LOVE seeing this note about your 2k time! I grew a hatred for the erg after many indoor erg competitions and more. Therefore, I avoid it like the plague but have recently hopped back on for the first time in almost 6 years! My goal is to get back down to my HS range of a 7:45 2k!
