Welcome to the day for all the things I review..
Living, Eating and Running...
Alpha and Omega:
Muscle Man was out of town for a night, to get a much needed SAHD break.. This meant I had the Little Studs Solo...we were upstairs watching "Over the Hedge" when I thought up an idea..it would be FUN to get a NEW movie.. We went to Great Wolf Lodge over the Christmas Break and they had clips for "Alpha and Omega," so off to Target we went.
TALL MOM THOUGHTS:
LOVE LOVE! The character development and mix of kid and adult friendly dialogue is great. The Little Studs were entertained (well LS #2 departed about 3/4 of the way through but he is 3). I highly recommend this movie as a rental or purchase. Our kids have already watched it several times..
TLC Extreme Couponing:
Tall Sister came over and we happened upon this show. The premise is Shopaholics who have mastered the art of Coupons getting item upon item for pennies. I got hooked. The first lady gave me ANXIETY, she appeared to have no reason for her purchases and no place to store them. She stacked 200 boxes of pasta on her futon. The lady pictured above was uber-organized and had a supply for 3 months, which is the coupon cycle. Then there was a guy who bought a crate of Total cereal and donated to Charity..
TALL MOM THOUGHTS:
-TLC totally staged this, no store has that much inventory on hand.
-I feel bad for the general public who could use a good deal, get to the store and cannot buy 10 for $10 because they were after these food hoarders.
-Wow these people have too much time on their hands, 7 hours in a store, and countless hours researching deals.
-I wish that our grocery bill could be $6 :)
Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches:
At Target the Little Studs wanted Ice Cream, well I am trying to get down to my best Running weight so I had to pass...but I did pick up a pack of my old 140 calorie FRIENDS the Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. I made the mistake of giving LS#2 a bite and ended up sharing most of my sandwich with the kiddos, so I probably only had 100 calories. Tastes so GOOD you will feel like you are cheating on your diet.
Smart Wool Socks HERE:
This time of year proper gear is so important and to me that starts with socks. Running socks are $$$$...but for good socks it may be worth the coin. Although it does not get too chilly in Washington when the chill comes I make sure to have my Smart Wool socks on for running. I even wear them around the house. These socks are AWESOME keeping my feet toasty and blister free.
Drymax socks HERE:
What I do know being a Washington runner is RAIN. I am constantly trying to avoid puddles, soggy socks are not fun. The solution I have found is Drymax socks, these are MAGIC! In the wettest conditions the water is pulled away from the skin leaving my toes dry. I have 3 pairs and this time of year one pair is always in my running bag.
