The birthday boy!

Monday was my grandfather's 89th birthday!  What an amazing age - to live 89 years and have the stories to tell!  Can you imagine??

Anyway - we went over for an impromptu dinner to celebrate with my sister, Anna, her two kids my grandfather and our family friend Marion.

In other news... I've been pretty busy this week.  I've missed a few workouts but I'm ok with that.... I need to jump back on the bandwagon but right now I feel good about where I'm at and what I'm doing.  I need to get through a test next week and then I will feel much better.

 I mentioned on twitter that I'm going vegetarian starting Monday June 13, for one week - I've tried this is something that I've wanted to do and it's on my 30 before 30 list.  I need to put together recipes for 7 days of a meat free diet... I plan on blogging along the way as well.  Any ideas or recipes you want to share you can email me at allie0662 {at} yahoo {dot} com.

Thank you for the sweet notes on Monday's post... June 4 is never an easy day and I'm thankful I have a forum that I can openly express my feelings... you guys are truly TRULY the best.

Don't forget tomorrow JUNE 10 is MRS. ADVENTURE'S DAY OF GIVEAWAYS.... Go visit her for a new giveaway at different intervals throughout the day. 

AND - I lost a follower....booooooo. 



  1. While skeptical, I tried tempehah based on Jason recommendation, made tacos, same way I always do, except swapping the meat for tempehah, and I will admit, I liked it

  2. Seriously.....looking for recipes? I am broken-hearted right now.

    Thanks to BDD for lifting my spirits right there.

  3. Oooh I love that you are going Veg for a week I'll do it with you so lets recipe share. My go-to recipes are Overnight Oats, Ezekial Pizzas and Ratatouille all recipes are on my blog :o)
