111 – Beagles, Budgets, Burgers

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives!

In this week’s episode, we talk about:

BREW Beagle Adoption Event
Tini’s been pretty sad since her big brother Tater Tot passed, so we took her to a BREW Beagle adoption event to see if she’d be happy to hang out with other beagles. She ignored the dogs and decided to go shopping for treats and bully sticks instead.

Are Budgets like Diets?
We sat down to figure out our budget and found we might be savoring a little too much in the Restaurants & Bars category! Awareness is key to finances/budgeting. It’s important to sit down and take a look at your finances so you know where you are and can determine where you’re going.

Industrial Revolution
Chad had a client in Indiana and was intrigued by Industrial Revolution Eatery & Grille.  It looked cool, so he stopped in for dinner. They offer a featured burger for their weekly salute to an innovator.

108 – Meditation, Tini, and Alton Brown

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives!

In this week’s episode, we talk about:

100 days of meditation.
Ruth’s using the Insight Timer meditation app. She started by reading 10% Happier by Dan Harris. Chad talked about DEFCON radio by SomaFM.

First lunch on the patio!
We enjoyed a Blue Apron recipe for lunch and ate outside for the first time in 2017. We find out that Chad dislikes cardinals.

Tini’s 6th anniversary.
Today is Tini’s birthday or as some people call it, “Gotcha Day.” We adopted her through BREW Beagles (Beagle Rescue, Education, and Welfare). You can visit their website and see adoptable beagles at gotbeagles.org.

Seeing Alton Brown live again.
We got to see Alton Brown’s “Eat Your Science” tour. It’s food! It’s science! It’s so us! We previously saw his “Edible Inevitable” tour in 2014. He puts on a fun show and is so good with impromptu audience interaction. You can find him on Twitter at @altonbrown.
