Tall Mom Test Lab Tuesday

Last night I opened the computer to post a Giveaway and get Test Lab Tuesday Ready... Just then Little Stud #2, who is almost 2 1/2 walked up and put his chubby baby hand on the keyboard and said "No Mommy. Close computer. I want you to play." WOW!! Where are my priorities? Really? I used to get up a little earlier and stay up a little later to get in Blogging, but lately I have not. So I shut the screen, read books, played toss the buzz lightyear and LAUGHED!!
This is an OLD picture but a preview to the Next Giveaway... I will get to it when I can. BALANCE and PRIORITIES!!

  • This is the day I dedicate to all things I review.

LIVING, EATING and RUNNING

LIVING

Toy Story 3:
We took the Little Studs to see Toy Story 3 on Saturday. I am PROUD to say our kids were the only ones in the Theatre with Buzz Lightyear costumes on :) The other kids looked and smiled, Thanks Tall Grandma. Pictures soon. The movie was GREAT! I think it is my favorite of the series, I LOVE LOVE that Ken and Barbie made an appearance. If you have kids take them to see it, if you don't go see it anyway. Funny, well made and a wonderful story.

EATING
I have read some Bloggy reviews of Greek Yogurt, so when it was on SALE, I grabbed a few. WOW oh WOW and I now a Chobani addict. Yum with a side of Yummy! Other than the sugar content this little snack packs a protein punch and is very refreshing post workout. Add granola or fruit and it gets even better. Check out the nutritional content below and TASTE it for yourself.
RUNNING:
Brooks Host of Rock N Roll Seattle HERE:

Brooks is doing some GREAT things as the host of the Rock N Roll Seattle Race. The expo should be a hoot with the Carnival theme, a chance to purchase our way into VIP porta potties and MORE. I am very excited since Brooks is one of my favorite brands.
HAPPY TUESDAY!

My 2 year old has been wanting to see that movie but I wasnt sure if it would be ok for his age. Thanks for the review!

I agree with your priorities. I have been a total blogging slacker and it simply is a matter of spending a little more time with famiy while we are "stay-cationing" at the VA house. I don't like that I am missing news from people I have come to think of as friends but I will catch back up. Right now there are cars to play with.

We saw Toy Story...well LMB and I saw 3/4 of it and then he was done. Hubbs and s'ghetti girl watched it all and enjoyed it.

Your little man is adorable! My monkeys have been wanting to run with me lately which is adorable because at the end of the street thay ask if we are done:)

Took my stepdad to see Toy Story 3 on Sunday. By the end, all of the kids were enraptured, and all the adults were crying. Including my me & the stepdad. Oh Pixar, how we love you.

Can't wait to see the movie. They are my faves of all the kid movies. It's brilliant with someone can make a movie that appeals equally to kids and adults. And I'm a tough audience!!

J said...

I so want to see Toy Story 3 this weekend!! I heard it was really good!!

Alison said...

Way to go Mom, shutting the computer, too many parents would not.

You so don't need little ones to enjoy Toy Story 3. My husband and I went Saturday night and had a blast, awesome movie, very fun. (I cried at the end, OMG I can't believe I admitted that, but I did)

I love that you listened to your litle guys. It can't get so hard to cram everything into your day. And, you did the right thing. I've been there and sometimes do the "wait a minute" game that goes on for fifteen minutes. Thanks for reminding me to log off the computer and log on to playtime with the kids!!!

Marlene said...

VIP porta-potties??!?! whichever race organizer came up with that one deserves a raise.

A Runner's Mind said...

Toy Story 3 rocks! A father's day event- dad, wife and 3 of their 4 kids (age 19yrs.-23 yrs!). As good as the first Toy Story.

Oz Runner said...

way to have the right priorities and shut that laptop ( ;
we took the kids to see toy story 3 over the weekend too....i think it was the best one yet....

Lisa said...

Yeah, I am addicted to Chobani too! Fage is my backup. So good. Regular yogurt just doesn't compare anymore (it's a distant 3rd)!

The Horton's said...

I took my daughter to this (LittleMan would not sit that long) and I LOVED IT, she tought it was good (5yrs old). I LAUGHED my butt off, and teared a little. GREAT MOVIE!
