Just a few odds and ends that I need to share - Fridays are good for that, right?

I have no idea where she gets this from. 
Clover Lane - Walking Drama  - I have really fallen in love with this blog.  I think she has such neat ideas and I've gotten caught up in reading her plan for her 40 Bags in 40 Days.  Of course my husband was thrilled to hear about the idea (because he thinks I'm a know because I pack away off-season clothes and nice things I don't want the girls to break...sigh...) and me actually throwing things away.  Anyway, here she is talking about walking daily to a movie on the treadmill and asking for other ideas.  Her readers provide a pretty substantial list and I know I have some treadmill walkers here so they may be right up your alley!

Just what I {squeeze} in - Granola Goodness - OH.MY.YUM.  Thank you, Tomiannie for this awesome recipe.  I was just thinking about buying coconut oil but thought, what would I use it for?  Hello!!  Too bad I can't count this as a fruit or vegetable...although I LOVE it in yogurt!  

Once a Month Mom - Tacos in a Sleeping Bag - I'm wondering if Elizabeth will go for these.  She is skeptical of all things meat - except for chicken nuggets.  But I'm thinking if it looks like this, she might try it.  Oh yes, I know what you're thinking.  She won't eat meat, vegetables or some fruit...which leaves goldfish and french fries and cheese.  I'm so proud. 

And I need to give a couple shout outs  - 

Stephanie at Stories of My Life - Posted an update to her impressive weight-loss pictures on her blog and announced that her mile time is down to 13:38.  She's doing the Couch to 5K program and has agreed to write a review for me when she's done.  Keep working hard, Stephanie!!

Also, Amy from May all Beings Be Well - Completed her first 10 K last week and finished 53/202 females and 10/46 in her age group - finishing in 54:58.  So proud of you, Amy!!

Ok, enough randomness for today.  Have a great weekend!!
