Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode we:
Got our taxes done We braced for the worst again this year, but amazingly we have refunds coming this year instead of owing a lot of money! We celebrated with margaritas.
Worked on eating less beef
We had home runs and base hits this year. Sunday we made a Shakshuka with Feta and it was delicious. Definitely a home run! Then we made some Turkey-Hummus Sliders and they were just a base hit.
Celebrated Chad’s sixth match anniversary
Chad is part of Big Brother Big Sisters and they threw a party for all the Bigs and Littles. Chad and Elijah have been matched for six years already.
Attended a Spring Wine and Chocolate pairing
We visited Indulgence Chocolatiers for their spring wine pairing. We tried five different wines and chocolates which were all very floral (think: spring). And we ran into one of Chad’s former colleagues and his wife.
Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode:
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.
