411 – Plain Cake Donut


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

Bahama Mama & Cafe Au Lait Truffle

Ruth went to a Tiki Cocktails & Chocolate pairing class
Ruth and her friend Sarah visited Indulgence Chocolatiers and enjoyed a class pairing their chocolates with tiki cocktails. It was fun and delicious. The cocktails reminded Chad of the song “Drink To Hawaii” by Richard Cheese.

Chad was eating in Iowa
He was in Iowa training and his clients took him to a BBQ joint, a taco/burrito place, and a place called Saucy Focaccia. And then they brought in donuts from the build-your-own donut shop, The Donut Experiment.

We didn’t close our Activity rings
Ruth’s hour-long yoga class lasted three hours and 48 minutes on her Activity app because she forgot to turn it off after class. Oops! We’re challenging ourselves to move at least three days this week.

Pokemon Go hosted a special event
We were in the middle of a project spring cleaning/rearranging the basement when Chad realized he needed to leave for an hour and catch a bunch of Dratinis.

Visited Mom’s and went through Dad’s tools
Ruth’s mom is in the process of purging her dad’s stuff. We visited to take a look at his stash of tools and see if there was anything we needed.

408 – Air Hockey


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

Air Hockey Showdown

Celebrated National Pizza Day
Chad was on the road this week and had to navigate through a snow storm on Friday, but we still managed to enjoy National Pizza Day!

Played Air Hockey
We visited Romine’s High Pockets – a pool and billiards hall in Milwaukee. It’s kind of a dive restaurant but the food was delicious. On the way out, Ruth noticed an air hockey table, so naturally there was a showdown!

Activity Monitor

Activated the Activity app on our watches
After wading through a foot of snow to retrieve the dogs from barking at the neighbor dogs, we realized we need to increase our fitness. We spent time pairing all our health apps together so we can track our movement each day.

Watched a fun Automan parody
Actor David Hewlett (Stargate Atlantis, etc), a fellow geek, created a parody of 80s TV show, Automan. This was clearly a labor of love – and we LOVED it! Watch it here.
