strawberries and a summer wishlist

When I'm bored at home with Mason and know that he's due for a nice long nap, I strap him into the car seat and head to Target.  Although this is definitely a good time killer, I usually end up spending money on unnecessary things.  I did, however, get a good deal on some strawberries,  $1.79 for a pound!
After my run with Mason today (2.37 miles) I made myself a strawberry smoothie.  Into the blender went 4 strawberries, 1 cup of vanilla soy milk, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and about 1 tablespoon of agave nectar to sweeten things up.
Cool and delicious it was definitely what my body was craving after the run.  And don't worry, I didn't drink it (and then subsequently spill it) in our bedroom.  Next time I'll add a few more strawberries for an even more berry taste.

Yesterday we received the Crate and Barrel catalog in the mail and I already found a bunch of things I want ... although most are unattainable there are some summer entertaining items that I would like.

Set of 6 Ice Pop Molds

Corn Griller Basket
Set of 8 Corn Picks

Bodum Fyrkat Barbeque Basting Brush

Anyone want to buy me these items?  Maybe my next "I'm bored with Mason" trip will lead us to Crate & Barrel.

Day #10 of my work out streak!

  1. I have the ice pop molds and have been making really good chobani yogurt based pops. Perfect for a hot afternoon!
