A Chicago Tradition since 1959 . .

Sunday, August 16, 2009

Good Sunday to You All!! For the few of you who don't know, I am a Chicago resident & love my city with its many flaws. Today I am speaking another positive note & that's the 51st Annual Air & Water Show!


I love the excitement of seeing the kids excited & the thrills of all the twist & turns of the planes & boats! I only watch from a distance as I am not a huge fan of tripping over people or being too close. Its something to see!

The Chicago Air & Water Show, originating in 1959, is Chicago's second most popular festival.[1] In 2005, 2,200,000 watched the Chicago Air and Water Show. Strong in tradition and one of the world's premier aviation events, the show also includes a wide array of military and civilian acts. It is the largest free show of its kind.


There are daredevil pilots, parachute teams, and jets flying in formation, as well as a water-skiing and boat-jumping component for additional thrills. The great thing about this festival is that it's visible from almost everywhere along the Chicago lakefront. Grandstand seats for the water show are located at North Avenue Beach, but some of the best viewing points are farther north, at Montrose Harbor and between Belmont and Addison.

Many of the Air Show performers base their operations at Chicago's third airport, the Gary/Chicago International Airport in nearby Gary, Indiana. Each year the U.S. Army Golden Knights and biennially the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds headline the show. The air show features the best civilian and military pilots displaying their flying skills to a delighted spectators. Straight from Wikipedia okay but it gives you the 4-1-1 that I just can't seem to describe!

I LOVE CHICAGO!!

Enjoy everyday!

Blessings,

Dee

SparkMotivator . . .

Friday, August 14, 2009



So when I think of a Spark Motivator I usually think of my team leaders that continue to motivate & push me into directions I would not have gone on my own. I think my FitTv team leader, QuickFire team leaders, 10,000+ team leaders, BBQs team leaders & so on but even though I have the decal to prove that people think of me as motivating. While I on the other hand come here for motivation myself from my fellow team members & Spark Friends! You are the true motivators of the motivatee. . .

Again, thanks to you, I am on my way to a healthier lifestyle!! See you all there in a minute or join the ones already there!

Blessings & emoticonDee

I've Just Been So Sad. . . .

Thursday, August 13, 2009



So I went to the grocery store on Saturday to get my Dannon Blended Fruit Strawberry & Peach 12pk & they weren't there. . They've disappearing from my grocery store shelves. .
Have you seen em?!

I know, I know the calories & carbs alone should make me stop looking but I can't help myself! It took me 3months to finish one cup of yogurt & these helped me immensely.
Wait I have to dry my tears. . .

Look at this face, can you feel my pain?!
So I was in Target the other day & they had a buy 4 12pks for $9 of this:

I had never had blueberry or raspberry so I asked my son to try them with me. Imagine, I was setting myself up to NOT like them but after my son said they tasted pretty good & could he have the raspberry, I tried them. Well they weren't the Blended Fruit but the blueberry actually tasted pretty good. Needless to say I have turned another pivotal corner in my healthier lifestyle cause Lite & Fit very little carbs, sugar & fat & they are 60 calories! Unlike my Blended Fruit which were about 100-120 calories, 24carbs or more & the sugar. I'm getting a toothache right now! So I can now do my happy dance!



Blessings & thanks for listening to my rants!

    emoticonhooray for finding a replacement and that you're doing a happy dance! don't you just love it when things like that happen? emoticon

my favorite yogurt is horizon organic lowfat yogurt. i'm sure it's high in carbs and the calories are about 150 buuuut it doesn't have any high fructose corn syrup which is amazing since just about everything else does nowadays emoticon

    Dee, I'm glad you're happy. I was going to suggest Lite and Fit. We love it. My husband's favorite is vanilla cherry and I like vanilla.

Your blogs are a kick. Love them. emoticon

    Glad you found a sub. I know how it is when you can not find what you want. Sometimes no sub will work. Glad this one did for you.

    Ok Dee here is a suggestion, buy a quart of low fat flavored yogurt and add berries or fruit to them yourself, trust me you will love it. That way you will never run out again. :) Stay healthy! :)
