I made a monster coffee to keep me warm and off we went. I don’t know that I’ve mentioned this on the blog, but the past 3 times DS has been on the ice it has been for Triple A Rep tryouts for his division, which is Tyke. Well, the coaches made their final decisions after today’s ice time and DS made the team!!! WOOT! You’re looking (well, you know what I mean) at one proud mama bear today! This is basically a competitive travel team so there are 5-6 different city’s that the team will be playing against. I’m excited for the season to officially begin on September 26.
After hockey I picked up one TIRED DD from her slumber party at the hotel. She had a wicked good time. I’m not surprised a bit! They had the movie “theatre” room reserved and had the pool to themselves. The room was an ensuite so the 6 girls had their own room, bathroom and flat screen TV. They enjoyed a waffle bar for b-fast, as well. Not too shabby at all.
I was pretty hungry by the time we got home so I ate a zucchini nut muffin to tie me over until it was lunch time.
These are some seriously tasty muffins. I highly recommend the recipe. Like I mentioned yesterday, I always leave the Splenda out of the Hungry Girl recipes and use agave instead. This has always worked well for me.
When lunch rolled around I was feeling some pizza so I topped a Stonemill English muffin with a piece of pepper jack cheese, a tomato and a few sliced olives and popped it under the broiler for a bit.
Not sure that I tasted any of the fruit mentioned, but it was pretty good none the less.
As you can see from the above sign, it’s a bit pricey to go in. When the kids were small we gladly paid the fee because they enjoyed the petting zoo and the play area. These days we’re content to just browse the store and load up bags of pre picked apples. Today I bought Ginger Gold;
As I was putting these away, I realized that I have A LOT of jam in the pantry. I won’t be buying anymore for quite a while! As soon as we got home, DD and I left again to get the grocery shopping done. Nothing exciting there…just a hefty bill. Eeek! September is such an expensive month.
The photo came out dark because we lost our sun for a bit later in the day. I was not very impressed with this SOL burger. I liked the Spicy Black Bean ones much, much better. This wasn’t horrible by any means, just not great. I’ll likely not buy these again.
After we were done with dinner, the kids and I took KC for a walk. My hubby is at hockey tonight and I needed to get both the kids out of the house to occupy them. Upon our return I ate a chocolate brownie Z-Bar;
And then we left the house again to hit Walmart for more back to school crap. Both the kids needed indoor shoes, hand sanitizer and DS needed a pencil sharpener and a ruler, not to mention body wash. I got suckered into a t-shirt for one and a hat for the other and left the place $75 poorer. Ugh…
Now the kids are showered, watching Hannah Montana and we are not going anywhere else tonight. I’m enjoyed a dark cocoa Camino hot chocolate as I type this out and then I’ll be reading all the blogs that I missed so far today. Then I’m not cat litter duty. Fun times. Hehe!
Bye for now!
