This week seemed to really fly by quicker than expected. We were quite busy with activities and such which always make time go by quickly.
The Bob-I am really enjoying the new do especially in this 100+ heat we are having right now.
Vox article-If your wondering why you’ve lost friends into adulthood. Let’s just say it has to do with prioritizing those you want to be close with among other things…The Golden Rule!
Señor Veggie-This place is a little gem a friend of Miss K and I introduced us to. I am not vegan and I love me some meat, but let me tell you this place was delicious! I should have taken a photo of the jackfruit mole tacos I ordered, but this one from their Facebook looks identical. This experience has inspired me to start experimenting with jackfruit as I had NEVER had it before and was blown away! Anyway if you are in San Antonio this is a GREAT vegan Mexican restaurant.
30 Day Plank Challenge App-I decided to do 30 day challenge that would help strengthen my core and back and stumbled across this app. It’s a FREE app and has reminders as well as programs for all skill level! I started on Monday at the intermediate level 1 which seems to be a good fit for my current strength and fitness level.
Moen Fixtures-THIS IS WINNING HERE, most Moen sink faucets, bath tub fixtures etc have a lifetime parts warranty on them so if the hose springs a leak or a seal breaks, you just call (1-800-BUY-MOEN) and they send the part needed out to you FREE! I had two faucets that had leaks in the pullout hose this week that needed repair so I called customer service up Monday and had the two hoses Wednesday to fix the faucets! Now that’s what I call EXCEPTIONAL Customer Service.
I wanted to start off today’s favorites with a neat/uplifting/inspiring story of selflessness/compassion/generosity of one young mans huge heart and a pig named Roo….this tugged at my heart for so many reasons (I raised pigs for 13 yrs as a young girl, cancer, toddlers, and compassion of others in this world). Click here to read it.
Now for the Friday Favorites
Fuse Lenses-I have to admit I am a frugal gal and when it comes to sunglasses, I like nice ones, but only buy a pair every 5-10 yrs so when I came across this company I was stoked! They make lenses for name brand glasses and have FREE shipping, polarized/non lenses as well as prescription lenses. The quality is awesome and they arrive within 3-5 days of ordering. My Ralph Lauren aviator glasses are about 5 years old and Miss K has had a field day with them so I was peaking through scratches but didn’t want to spend the $$ on a new pair so I ordered in the fuse lenses and they are like new again!
