I pretty much was dreaming all day about my juicer, maybe more drooling than dreaming. The juice is so good. While flipping through the pages of the recipe book that came in the box, I saw one for a Salad-In-A-Glass drink. It consisted of lettuce, green/red pepper, carrots, and a little bit of spinach. The recipe called for a tomato too, but I don’t eat those (yuck!) so i nixed that and added some extra pepper. I was a little nervous at first, it smelled like a salad, and looked kinda cool with the different colors layering the glass. I wasn’t sure about the whole drinking my dinner thing, but it actually wasn’t bad. It was kinda good. I will have it again, maybe add a few other veggies like cucumbers, celery, whatever else I can think of. It was a great way to get my veggie fix for the day, and it totally filled me up. Just as good as eating a salad without any dressing!

Here is a little viddy-vid of Jackson with his classic playtime moves. He gets in these moods where he runs around like a crazy man and jumps around like he’s nuts. I am working on uploading some more videos but YouTube seems to be hatin’ on me. Hopefully I will be able to upload the others that I have soon. Until then, please enjoy!
I have been reading all the other bloggie’s posts about all the different kinds of nutrition bars out there and I decided to jump on the band wagon! I have never had a LUNA bar before, and today at around 3:00 when I started to get a little hungry post lunch, I thought this would be a great time to whip one out. I also knew I was going to be working out tonight, so that kinda made me feel better about having one, since they are a little high on the caloric side. I had Chocolate Peppermint Stick and it was really good. I enjoyed it immensely. It cured my chocolate craving for sure. I also liked its consistency. It was a good kind of crunchy. I would buy this flavor again!
Seriously, we are in a recession and that sucks pretty bad, the economy is down the toilet, and everything is really scary right now, I get that. BUT THE SALES ARE AWESOME! I can’t even begin to tell you about the awesome deals I got today, but I will try to share with you some of my excitement. So the two main purchases were: North Face Jacket (!!YAY!!) AND a Jack La Lanne Power Juicer (!!Double YAY!!) I seriously got the BEST deals. I got the jacket for under $150. So awesome, HALF OFF!!! I am going to be so warm! I also got the juicer for about $80, but I had a gift card, and ended up paying only about $30. INCREDIBLE. I already made a juice (3 apples/carrots) and it was so good. I am pumped BEYOND PUMPED! I also picked up this Honey Bee Bath Bomb from Lush and I can’t wait to try that out later too. Had such a good time today!
