312 – Shopping


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Pulled Pork Totchos

Ate a lot of tater tots
For date night, we visited 42 Ale House in St. Francis. They offer a lot of board games as well as food and beverages! In addition to ordering tots with each of our entrees, we had the pulled pork tot-chos. It was a LOT of tots!

Went clothes shopping
Ruth had to buy a new winter coat because the zipper on her coat broke. Then we headed to Torrid to find jeans. She had no idea they had real clothes that didn’t feature Jack Skellington or Hello Kitty and was pleasantly surprised by the nice looking offerings. We took a break in between and stopped for some wine and apps at Pizza Man. The wine was a C5 Ranch Cabernet and the apps included sausage stuffed olives and mozzarella sticks.

Visited the Emergency Vet
Abby was running along the fence with the neighbor dog and ended up tearing a nail on her back foot. After mild sedation and pain relievers, the emergency vet “ripped” the nail out and bandaged her up. The nail will grow back and she’ll be fine. In the meantime, she gets to wear the cone of shame.

Started tracking our food again
Chad is using the Day One Journal app and taking photos of his food. Ruth is using LoseIt. Any bets on how long we’ll last?

Chad celebrated Lady Ada Lovelace’s birthday
Lady Ada was the world’s first programmer in the 1800s. Another woman who’s online handle is Lady Ada created a website called AdaFruit.com which offers insight into technology. He recently ran across an article about Hollywood star Hedy Lamar and her engineering background.
