Boredom strikes.

Okay. Usually my nights are filled with watching TOO MANY shows that we've got saved up in the DVR but tonight is different. Fish went out with a guy he used to work with to have some drinks and watch the game. So here I sit.. bored.  I haven't really made any friends since we moved here (which is bad because we've only been here over a year now!) or I could be out doing the same.. or something.

But that's a story for another time.

Here's some randomness..

- I have never EVER liked the taste of guacamole but I've recently been craving some homemade guac. What's up with that? For some reason I think it's going to taste different if I make it myself.

- Now that I've discovered Whole Foods I'm pretty much on a health, organic, natural kick. That place is A-MAZING! They have sooo many things that look SOOO good. I want to try all of it!

- Because of my Whole Foods addiction I've become addicted to Emeril's new show Emeril Green. It's filmed at the Whole Foods right next to my house. I walked in one day to find a huge film crew.. and of course EMERIL! I've always loved him. I've learned so much from his show, it's ridiculous. I can't wait to try all my new tricks. :)

- And just so you know.. Acai juice is not very tasty, Snapea Crisps are pretty much amazing, and Metromint water is the absolute BEST flavored water available. And really, I love that water so much, I think it's gonna have to have it's own post one day.

Okay, I think that's it.

I'm gonna go enjoy some blue tortilla chips and hummus. Then I'm going to bed EARLY for a change!

I've been on vacation since last Wednesday.
My (really, Fish's) niece's birthday was Saturday and mine was Sunday.
So we went down to visit our families and celebrate birthdays.
It was sooo much fun.
We both managed to get the whole week off which was VERY nice.
That rarely happens. Ya know, the joys of working retail..

Maybe I'll post some pics soon?
We got a TON!

I go back to work tomorrow and REALLY don't want to.
The only good thing is that my weird, random, no longer set, retail schedule starts tomorrow.
Which means I actually get to sleep in!! I don't have to be at work till 9.
I'm pretty excited about that.

On another note..
I'm not very happy that my giveaway only got 17 entries.
I suppose I didn't post on as many sites as I should have..
But in any case, I'll be updating with the winners tomorrow.

Well, Fish is sick so we're headin to bed early tonight.
Buenas Noches, amigos.

Fiber One Giveaway!!

YAY! It's time for my first giveaway!!

Before I get into the prize pack I want to talk about the Fiber One yogurt.
And I want to start by saying that I've never been a fan of yogurt. At all.
It always looks so good.. so I always buy it.. but it always goes bad.
I've never finished a container. Ever!
There's just something about the texture and the yogurt flavor that I can't handle.
Well, today I tried the Fiber One Strawberry Yogurt.
I finished the whole thing!
It was so good. I got the strawberry flavor because they were all out of the peach flavor.
It was very sweet but not overly so.
And it wasn't as thick as other yogurts I've tried.
This yogurt will definitely NOT be going bad!!

On top of being delicious..
One container of the yogurt is only 80 calories!
And it has 20% of your daily value of fiber.
It also comes in four different flavors.
Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla, and Key Lime Pie.

In case you missed my last post about Fiber One, fiber is extremely important when trying to lose weight. It keeps you fuller longer. Which means less snacks, less food, less calories.

Alright, onto the giveaway!
Fiber One has been generous enough to offer THREE lucky readers a prize pack that consists of:

- coupon for a FREE 4 pack of Fiber One yogurt
- sport water bottle

Director of Fandemonium

So, not too long ago, NFL and Monster sponsored a contest where you could win a "job" (Broadcaster, Photographer, etc.) in the NFL during this upcoming season. Well, since I'm totally addicted to sweepstakes, I entered. I got an email tonight saying I was chosen as an alternate! That if one of the actual winners that was chosen is not really eligible then I will become a winner! How cool is that??! I really thought it was some sort of scam at first. Then I went to the site. It seems pretty legit to me!

*crosses fingers*

I neeeed someone to be disqualified!!

Oh yeah.
If I win, I'll get..
2 tickets to all 8 home games of the team of my choice.
a merchandise bag
a custom jersey
and a 3 day stay in NY during the "selection process" (auditioning to be the grand prize winner)

Time to Face-Off!

I've come across this pretty cool website by Fiber One. It's the Fiber Friend Face-Off!

It's an addicting little game where you create your own Fiber Friend and challenge other Fiber Friends to your knowledge of, what else.. FIBER! You compete to see who can pick the items with the highest Fiber content. Then after your game is over you can take a quiz where you learn all kinds of neat facts about Fiber. I never knew it was such an important part of weight loss. Getting the recommended 25g per day will help you stay fuller longer since it helps your body digest your food slower. Yep, you really do learn something new every day!

Oh, I almost forgot! Every day that you Face-Off with your Fiber Friends is another entry into their sweepstakes.

Grand Prize: Luxury Spa Trip in AZ
Weekly Prizes: Flip Video Camcorders
Daily Prizes: $50 Cash Cards

They'll also be offering a new Fiber One coupon each week. This week's coupon is for $1 off any Fiber One cereal.

You should definitely check it out. It's fun AND there's coupons and sweepstakes (2 of my favorite things) involved!
