MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!!

But, first today Sam and I went to Philly to visit Ikea and get shelves for our movie/Eagles room. We got 3 book cases for books and DVD’s. I can’t wait to put them together and organize the DVD’s in ABC order (I’m and little OCD about that). While at Ikea Sam reminded me that when we were watching Parking Wars in the background you could see Ikea. So I was on a mission to find it. As we drove in we looked all around and then got busy looking for a space to park, so no luck. As we were walking in I looked over to check for cars and BAM there it was! It was beautiful! If you have never seen Parking Wars it is a TV show about parking officers in Philly who write tickets, boot cars, and have them toed. This is what I do in the summer and I wish I could boot too. This show is AMAZING!

When we ate lunch Sam made sure I had a beautiful view of the PPA

No Lines, but lots of cars in the impound lot. I was in my glory!

Ikea was definitely worth the trip and just what I needed it got us out of the house, spent quality time with each other alone, and saw the PPA building. If you don’t know this is where all the pissed off people come to get there cars after they have been towed.

YAYYYY…Soda Stream!!!

What a great start to the first day of October. Happy October everyone! So I finally made Christina’s pumpkin flavored oatmeal this morning and it was soooo GOOD!1001090812

I saved the rest for lunch which everyone loved the smell of. Once again they were jealous of my lunch…heehee!1001091156

When I got home I started right away to making chicken broth from scratch (which I have never done) to make chicken noodle soup. Sam came home early and was yelling for me to look and see that I had a package. It was Soda Stream and I quickly stopped what I was doing to take lots of pictures. It was like a Soda Stream photo shoot.10010915431001091545new package1001091549a1001091550

Erin O’Connor and the really nice people at Soda Stream sent me not only the machine, but 9 different flavors and tiny flavors to add to water. Let me just tell you how cool and amazing this machine is:

  • It is really light weight
  • Easy to assemble
  • Don’t have to plug anything in
  • Takes up very little counter space (which is so valuable)
  • Comes with 2 great/big bottles with lids
  • Fun to use
  • Tastes amazing plain or with flavoring
  • Earth Friendly
  • You can make seltzer water plain or with flavors
  • You can make your very own soda with many different flavors

How to use (so easy):

  • First take off the back and insert the CO2 cartridge from the the bottom. Just screws in the top.
  • Put the back cover on
  • Fill bottle with cold water and screw into the front of the unit
  • Push the button on the top 3 times (push hard)

Check out my YouTube video of me trying it for the first time!

  • Fill bottle with cold water. I used the purified water and then put the bottle in the fridge to get cold.

WORKOUT

I was so pleased with myself because I made homemade chicken noodle soup and went to kettlebells. Also, I did laundry and cleaned up the house a bit. I did not sit down all afternoon so my feet are sooo tired. Kettlebells kicked my butt tonight, but it was so nice because it was the first time I used 26lbs. and one of the other instructors was really impressed about how much I am going to yoga and kettlebells. She said, “you can really tell we are kicking your butt and you are doing and awesome job.” I was so HAPPY!

DINNER

Chicken Noodle Soup with lots of noodles. I made a huge pot so I will be eating this for a while.

Chicken, noddles, carrots, garlic, celery, onion, spinach, oregeno, and salt and pepper,

PAMPERING

After dinner and cleaning up the big mess I made. I treated myself by doing my nails with the new nail polish I got today. They are two different shades of purple. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted so I got both. My finger nails are a little lighter.1001092022
