Brooke has a constant look of surprise on her face. She loves having her eyes wide open so she can take in as much of her surroundings at one time as possible. We have also decided that she has the most active toes in the world, they are constantly wiggling around like crazy.
Last night Brooke got to hang out with her favorites: 2 cousins, my aunt and my uncle.
They always have the best food starting with this amazing drink.
These are my two favorite appetizers in the whole wide world.
The salad had a ranch-chipotle dressing that I am going to have to go buy today and the salmon was absolutely perfect.
After dinner my aunt and I went on a walk while Billy and my cousin played ping-pong, who would have thought our Sundays would be so similar to the ones we used to have in Utah… I love it.
I have never actually been inside a Whole Foods (I should be kicked out of the blog world for that) but I have tried different foods from there… including this ice cream that my aunt gets from Whole Foods (does that mean it is healthy if you buy it there?). By far the best cookies & cream ice cream ever and you know you can take my opinion on ice cream seriously because I have tried every ice cream the world has to offer.
My cousin and uncle are really into amazing quality chocolate so we had a little testing session too. I am more of a Milky Way girl (remember I have the taste buds of a 3rd grader) but Billy loves all of these fancy chocolates.
And last but not least I finally had a chance to try out the Garmin 10 (I can’t believe it took me a full 36 hours to tell you about this because I usually tell you everything the second it happens because we are close like that).
I would like to personally thank Jillian Michaels for giving me a slight muscle in my arm… this is a first. And yes I am flexing my hardest for the picture.
I REALLY liked:
-The small size, it is really comfortable and the fact that it looks awesome (you can wear it as a normal watch too).
-It gathers all of the information that I want to know about my runs.
-It is crazy easy to use.
-The price is too good to pass up.
Parts I didn’t love so much…. (To be expected because it is so much cheaper than other GPS watches. I wouldn’t call these flaws because it is such a small watch and so cheap that these things are to be expected)
-The battery wears out quick when you are using it. It does last for a long time when on standby.
-No menu customization, you can’t choose what you are looking at on the screen and I like to see pace, time, MPH and distance all on the same screen because I am OCD like that.
Great GREAT watch for casual runners and easy days but I will wear my garmin 305 for speed work and races.
Do you ever shop at Whole Foods? What do you buy there?
Do you like dark chocolate? Fancy chocolates?
Tell me about a new running product that you recently tried (new shoes, watch, fuel, clothing) and tell me what you think about it! I am always looking for more ways to spend all of our money on running gear.
Did the weekend make you more tired or more rested?
