My Obligatory Blog of Randomness

This is my obligatory weekly blog. As a member of the Community Team, Iím supposed to post a blog every week. I enjoy blogging, so itís not a big deal. Thing is, Audrey and I had planned on shooting a vlog about choosing an adult-sized hula hoop--you know, show you all the tubing and stuff. But...we got rained out and then her social schedule got busy, so thatíll have to wait until next time.

So, this is my obligatory blog of randomness, since my planned blog went kaput. Um. Yeah, so...letís see--

Oh, Iím feeling so much better! Still not quite up to hooping, but this mandatory rest time is starting to pay off. Iíve been able to keep walking on the elliptical and take a couple of short walks in the neighborhood. I did the grocery shopping and was back in the kitchen this week. It was SO good eating healthy again! I wasnít even exasperated about cooking (I often am) because it felt so good to eat fresh, healthy, whole foods. I tried a bunch of new Spark recipes this week, from Spark Solution, Spark Cookbook and SparkRecipes. We ate some goooood stuff!

This was my version of Easy Steamed Fish Packets from Sparkís grill recipes.

This was my husbandís version of the same fish. LOL

Breakfast of the Champions!

Pancakes!!! Spark Solution has completely ruined regular old pancakes for us now. These are amazing; so are the protein pancakes. I kid you not. They taste like funnel cakes from the State Fair. Bliss, I tell ya.

Side note: Iíve been looking for a really good washboard for over a year now. My BFF finally found one for me. Iím SO excited! Iím gonna put all kinds of fun stuff on it and turn it into an amazing percussion instrument. Iím sure this will appear in a SparkWorthy vlog someday. :)

My awesome SparkBuddy REEBADABEEBOOS sent me the most fantabulous, guineapigeriffic cards and stickers Iíve ever seen. I just had to share one of them with you.

Is this not the best card ever?? All itís missing is a guinea pig hula hooping in the background. I taped this up on my Shelf of Awesomeness and I guarantee itís gonna make me smile every day. Thank you, Courtney!!

And last, I will leave you with this random piece of artwork we saw in a department store the other night.

Go do something astonishing! Bet you can surprise yourself.
