Lots to Talk About

Catching Up

I seem to be getting busier and busier as the days go by. I guess that's ok- it means I'm getting somewhere. We had a great weekend doing some gardening (I did the project management), going grocery shopping, and watching a How I Met Your Mother marathon. I frieken love that show. It's...wait for it....AWESOME! The rest of the days since then have been spent in my dungeon (work) coming in early and leaving late. Oh well- at least they let me leave :)

Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt Review

Now I have to say- this stuff was amazing! I have always been a fan of greek yogurt, but this has truly been one of my best experiences with it. I have tried all of the flavors and they were all good. Here is my quick overview of each one:

You can also read more about the yogurt on their website:

Plain Greek Yogurt:

This yogurt was perfectly tangy and thick. It was perfect mixed in with fruit and had a great consistency. Plain yogurt was my favorite since I am not much of a flavored yogurt girl.

Vanilla Greek Yogurt:

Though the vanilla was very subtle, it was a nice, natural vanilla flavor. I have probably gotten too used to fake vanilla products. This one was my second favorite.
Blueberry Greek Yogurt:

I was pleasantly surprised by the real blueberries as I mixed this yogurt. The taste was like real blueberries but it was a little too sweet for my taste. I stretched this yogurt out over 2 servings and even topped my toast with it one morning.
Honey Greek Yogurt:

I mixed this in with my yogurt cereal mess this morning and it was amazing- perfectly creaming and the honey was decadent. I am not a huge fan of putting honey in Greek yogurt, but I would definitely buy this flavor again.

And there ya have it. I enjoyed this amazing yogurt over the last few days and will definitely be using the coupone Kristina sent me as well as the cute lunch tote. Thanks again!

In Her Fridge

Maybe I'm a stalker, but I always like to see what people have in their fridge, just like MTV Cribs! Here is what we have in our fridge this week:


Almond butter, better n' pb, juices, and more canned things:

Juice and yogurt for the boy's smoothies:

Lots of spinach and brussel sprouts:

Finally, here are some of my more exciting meals over the last few days:

Lunches (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday):


And my only presentable dinner:

Otherwise, dinner is eaten in this fashion (yogurt mixed with strawberries, protein powder and almond butter)

We also went on a walk tonight because sometimes I just have too much energy and need to be walked. We took pictures of us and the view was pretty too.

If you have finished reading this post, I shall offer you a finisher's medal. This is why people post daily, huh?

Have a great rest of your week! We are almost at Friday!

P.S. I think I officially quit the Drab to Fab Challenge. It wasn't for me- I heart my coffee!

I personally like the plain yogurts the best. I like to flavor them myself with REAL fruits. I'm a snob that way,haha.
I love that fat egg sandwich! yum! eggs are one of my fav foods!
