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.

503 – Cauliflower Crust


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

Had fun in the car
This week we visited Parkside 23 for date night. On the way, Ruth was pretty sure Chad threw a shaka symbol at a Methodist church.

Edie and Chad eating Tamago at Wasabi Sushi Lounge

Enjoyed sushi with friends
As a tradition of our family of friends, we visited Wasabi Sushi Lounge for all-you-can-eat sushi for Easter.

Started getting fit
It’s official: we’re back on the road to fitness. Ruth started walking, the treadmill arrived, and Chad started running. We also had a coaching session with a fitness trainer who suggested another style of eating for us.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust!

Made healthier choices
We were challenged to have a pizza with a cauliflower crust – in an effort to eat more plant-based foods. Chad was apprehensive, but in the end, he admitted to really liking it!

Connected with a friend
We had the opportunity to connect with our friend JJ in real time – on a phone call! It was balm for the soul.
