512 – Vegetarian-ish

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

Resolved Our Lawnmower Drama
Our 10-year old Black and Decker electric lawnmower was on its last legs but then we got a new battery and voila! life (and our lawn) is so much better!

Kinda, Sorta Tried Vegetarianism
Ruth’s second cousin Sydnee challenged her to try being vegetarian for a week. We didn’t do it 100%, but we made some really good recipes like the Spinach Lasagna Rollups.

BBQ Chicken Salad at The Thirsty Duck

Ate Salads at The Thirsty Duck
This restaurant features duck pin (or mini) bowling. We need to reserve a lane and bring some friends along. Being vegetarian-ish, we had salads (with chicken).

Ate Sushi at Wasabi
We generally visit Wasabi Sushi Lounge for their holiday buffet, but we decided to visit for dinner and order off the menu.

Looked Up #gallstones On Instagram
Ruth is battling her gallbladder being out of sorts and had an ultrasound (insider tip: don’t look up #gallstones on Instagram) and now she needs a CT scan with contrast.

Borrowed Some Macs for Camp
Chad asked a recent client to borrow five laptops for Camp One Step. The company gave him a dozen because they thought it was an amazing opportunity to help.

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.
