401 – Lasagna Fail


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

Killed a lasagna
We attempted to make this Motherf$cking Lasagna by fitness blogger James Fell. The recipe actually includes a warning to get a deep enough pan and not let the lasagna boil over. We did not follow directions and everything started burning. So we pulled the rip cord and ordered pizza.

The nephews at laser tag

Enjoyed Christmas fun with people
Chad got together with his Little Brother to work on an electronics project. It inspired Chad that Elijah really took pride in his craftsmanship. And then we took our three nephews to play laser tag at Lasertag Adventure. The youngest had a lot of fun continually shooting Ruth. She’s busy formulating a plan to retaliate for next year.

Ice Cream Drinks

Indulged in ice cream drinks
We visited Joey Gerard’s Supper Club with Ruth’s family. After dinner, we decided to indulge in ice cream drinks at the bar. The perfect ending to a really great day. In fact, Ruth said, “Today is the best day ever. And tomorrow will be, too,” and it was super inspiring.

311 – Dining on Mondays


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

Made a Movie War list
We went through Netflix and watched trailers for old, bad movies. We now have a good list for Movie War and will offer some reviews in future episodes – because The Ice Pirates needs some internet love.

Wine and Small Plates at La Merenda

Found an open restaurant on Monday
Apparently restaurants being closed on Mondays is still a thing. We were going to head out and realized half our list of date night restaurants are closed on Mondays. But in good news, we found La Merenda was open and they were thrilled to see us!

Chad was in Minneapolis
And learned that one Mai Tai is plenty!

Ruth had a work event
It was the 29th Annual Christmas in the Ward on Friday, so wineza was a little late!

Thought about keeping in touch
Our friend Phil shared a graphic from Crustacean Singles about reaching out to others. Ruth admitted to still having a hard time reaching out while Chad is inspired.
