This and That and then some...

I like today's quote from Real Simple:
“Always do what you are afraid to do.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Certainly something I can remember and work on.

Today is National Ugly Truck Contest day. Yep, I do believe the Chevy Avalanche is the ugliest truck to date...well, with exception to the hummer truck. Ick!

Today is also National Lollipop day. Lifesaver lollipops have always been my favorite.

I don't love that our new apartment complex 1) doesn't allow visitors to park in the parking lot, 2) doesn't even assign at least one parking spot per apartment, and 3) has gates all around and offers only the back entrance for you to walk through if you have to park on the street. However...I will say that my trek to the car through the mist on this fine Oregon morning was quite pleasant and a great little extra added exercise bonus before I sat in the car on my 30 minute drive to work.
Thank you Lord for the unassigned parking spots.
You gave me a nice peaceful walk that stretched my muscles and cleared my head for the day.

Sunday night Scott and I did some grocery shopping and brought home a new item to try. Now, I know you may want to judge when you first see the picture...but I'm telling you now: It is not bad, not bad at all. Especially when you realize that it's organic and has no high fructose corn syrup in it. Okay, okay, here is the item we tested out this weekend...Yes, Organic Batter Blaster. Seriously. No joke. We had breakfast for dinner and the pancakes were not too shabby. I tried to stick to the 4 inch size that they mention on the back and actually, they turned out very decent. These by no means will be the pancakes we'll make on a regular basis. I think we'll stick to my personal fave, Fiber One Pancake mix...yum! It is nice to know, thought, that we have options that aren't bad and aren't that bad for you...and that don't create any sort of extra dishes to wash. I sure do love taste testing. Maybe Scott will share with you guys what he thought of the pancakes in the comments.

And look how cute this little dude is...
Okay, look how cute he is now.

Jeff and Dawn's little boy, Brady, and our very sweet, precious nephew.

I think that is all for now. Have a great day everyone!

I've had those before. MrT had them at his house. They are pretty good.
