One of my favorite things about blogging is getting ideas for new foods to eat, exercises to try, and things to do in general. That's why I especially like when Sues does her favorite things posts on We Are Not Martha. It's the perfect way to get new ideas for things to love. I decided today I'll do my own, and hopefully you'll get an idea or two. Enjoy :)
The Carrot and Grape Combination
Yes, I realize I just started with a pretty random one. I've been taking carrots and grapes to work for my morning snack and I just love this combination. First of all it's practical for me right now because both carrots and grapes can be out of the fridge for a few hours and I don't have access to one as I run around to different tutoring houses. Also, I love that it's very crunchy- something about eating crunchy foods makes me feel like I'm really eating something. Finally, the combination of the really sweet/sour grape with the less sweet carrots is just perfect. Plus, they are good for you.
Summer Country Music
I think I've now liked country music for about 12 years, so that's nothing new. But I do have some new songs I love including:
Take a Back Road, Rodney Atkins
Dirt Road Anthem, Jason Aldean
Without You, Keith Urban
Crazy Girl, Eli Young Band
If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away, Justin Moore
Barefoot Blue Jean Night, Jake Owen
Just a Kiss, Lady Antebellum
Knee Deep, Zac Brown Band
Seriously, all good. Download them all. If you don't like country, then reconsider that and download them all :)
Peter Christian's Honey Mustard
Remember a few weeks ago Eric and I went to one of my all time favorite restaurants in New London, NH? Well, they also happen to have the BEST honey mustard ever. I really don't even like mustard, but I somehow love this. I was really hoping to tell you guys you could buy it online (also cuz I need more) but sadly, they don't sell it online. So, obviously you need to make a trip to New Hampshire. And so do I.
Lol, the name cracks me up. Basically, it's a huge avocado with less fat than a normal avocado, fabulous. I love taste so when I'm not smearing honey mustard all over my sandwiches, I am spreading avocado across the bread. Yum.
Reading, Reading, Reading
Summer isn't all about teaching the kiddos how to read, it's also about catching up on my own reading. For a list of the books I have read and loved recently, visit my New Meaning of Summer Reading post.
Iphone Auto Correct
Truth be told, I don't have an iphone, but I can definitely appreciate a good laugh over the absolute HILARIOUS auto corrects that people have experienced. I was literally dying while I was reading the conversations on this website to Eric, it was hard to read I was laughing so hard. I will warn you, they aren't exactly G rated, but hilarious anyway! When I get an iphone the FIRST thing I am going to do is turn autocorrect OFF!
Erin Condren Life Planner
Okay fine, so I don't love this life planner yet because I haven't got it. But ever since Amber blogged about it last November, I've been waiting for the 2011-2012 life planner to come out (I had a new planner at the time) so I could get it. I just ordered mine last night and I could not be more excited for it to arrive in a couple of weeks. I'll show you it when it does :)
