Good Deals & Bad Wheels

August 9, 2010

This morning I rotated between lifting weights, washing dishes, and reading various blogs.

Here are some blogs I follow regularly:

Carrots ‘n’ Cake

Eat, Live, Run

Healthy Tipping Point

The Innerworkings of a College Graduate

Iowa Girl Eats

Kath Eats Real Food

Peanut Butter Fingers

Skinny Runner

I also spent some time on Craig’s List because our friend Lindsey needs a place to live. Any locals know of a 2 bedroom rental in a quiet, safe neighborhood in Anchorage?

I had a light lunch before running some errands because breakfast held me over quite well.

The last apple in the house–time to get some more!

A quick, easy lunch but some of my favorites!!

Multigrain bread, toasted, with almond butter.

While getting groceries, I had this Mango Macadamia Kind bar. I should have known lunch wouldn’t hold me over long enough! What a great tropical treat though–very flavorful and not dry at all like many granola/energy bars are.

After shopping in Costo, I came back to see this!!

Not cool people, not cool!! Especially since they didn’t leave any contact or insurance information.

My poor car that I’m getting ready to sell. Now I have to stick even more money into it before trading it in. 🙁

After calls to my husband, insurance agent, polic department, and my parents, I finally made it home with these purchases.
