Manic Monday

First off, I want to wish my mom a very Happy Birthday! She's my best friend and she's the most amazing woman I have ever met! I hope to be as great of a wife and mother as she has been. She's definitely my hero. I love you, Mommy!
So, did you all have a good weekend? We did. Saturday, we dropped my parents off at the airport and went to eat breakfast at Brothers Juniper's. Yummy! We spent most of the day relaxing. It was so nice. Yesterday, we took my grandfather to Cracker Barrel and had another relaxing day. After eating two delicious meals for breakfast over the weekend, I didn't want any cereal this morning. So, I decided to make the Hungry Girl Muffin Lovin. Click here for recipe. The muffin was wonderful and tasted just like McDonald's Egg McMuffin. I used liquid egg whites. I will definitely make this again.

Fred and I also purchased some interesting looking shoes. They're Vibram FiveFingers Shoes. Your toes fit right into the toe slots. It takes some getting used to, but it feels like you're barefoot. I wanted a neutral color so they didn't stand out more than they already do. Supposedly they are also good for running, fitness training, yoga, pilates, boating, etc.. I am nervous about trying them, but I am going to give them a try at Jazzercise today. Have you seen these?

Speaking of Jazzercise, they're having a ONE day sale TODAY ONLY! You get 10 months for $20 a month plus enrollment fee. Click here to find a class in your area.
You'd think with all of these advertisements in my blog today that I was getting paid, but I'm not. I just wanted to share a couple of great things I've found to make your 2010 a better year. Happy Monday, all!

My best friend's husband wears these all the time when he runs. I laughed so hard when I saw them! They are funny looking but I have heard they are great running shoes.

**For some weird reason it won't let me post a comment under an open ID (it keeps saying open ID error)so it will show up as Tim and not Lindsey!

Those shoes are crazy looking but I have seen so many people wearing them. Let us know how they work out for you!

My husband has been looking at those shoes for awhile now (for running). You'll have to let us know how they do!

Today is my mom's birthday too. Happy Birthday to your mom!

Those shoes are very interesting...personally I prefer being barefoot to sneakers so maybe I should check them out!
