Frizz Alert

The last few days have not been good hair days in Nashville!!! Ever since last Friday it's been gloomy and rainy.

We're in the process of bidding out a new roof on our house, and one of our prospects came out Saturday and walked around on the roof with Brent. He was really great, so hopefully when we get his quote he will be in the neighborhood. Other than that we spent a relaxing day Saturday NOT WORKING ON ANYTHING!! We ran to the library, picked up a pizza and watched some TV. We ran some errands and picked up the fabric for our curtains and even stopped at Publix. Any week we don't have to shop at Ghetto Kroger is a good week.

Sunday was an AWESOME day! We had "cheap seat" tickets to see Rent and it was great!! The guy who played Roger (who was some sort of South African Idol winner) could REALLY sing. They had a very strict "no camera" policy and Hitler himself was patroling our area, so no pics of the show, boo!

While we were at the show Pippin managed to amuse himself by somehow getting a pizza box off our kitchen island (we think he somehow managed to catapoult himself to grab it by using the stool....somehow) and absolutely shredding it. Niiiiice.

Sunday evening we went out to our fave Indian restaurant with friends S & her hubby N. We used to work together and still keep in touch daily with email, but we don't get the chance to see each other as often as we'd like to. They'd never had Indian before so we ordered tons of stuff and shared it all and had a GREAT time.

So now it's back to work and it's been pretty rainy all week. Yesterday afternoon was nice and sunny though so we took Pippin for a nice long walk and then did it all over again today.

So, one thing we've really been thinking about lately is eating more organic. So what do you do??? We've started buying more organic products, and I've requested several books from the library to read up on it. We've swapped over to organic eggs, and I'm telling you they are SO much more flavorful and fluffy. And we've also changed over to organic chicken and it's been so much more tender and flavorful. The tough thing about it has been the price - it's pretty rough to pay $2 more per gallon of milk when milk has already gotten more expensive. But on the flip side, if it's so much better for you what's more important than your health and that of your family? Anyway....any thoughts and suggestions you have on organic versus not would be greatly appreciated!

Today was a big day - the last day the gym will be open for a week and a half - UGH! I feel like one of the Biggest Loser teams being kicked out of the gym and being told to completely refigure their whole routine! Lunchtime workouts have really saved me the past year when home has been so full of projects. Tomorrow I think I'll check out Uptown Y and see how crazy it is, or if the weather is great I'll just head out for a run from work and change in the bathroom.

Have a great night!

Rent is my favorite musical and the last time I saw it, the same South African guy played Roger...and he was awesome! It's such a good show!!

I have to admit organic milk tastes different than regular milk. Still, I usually buy what's on sale and S. buys whatever she can find that's organic.

Organic meat and dairy taste SOOOOO much better. Organic, seasonal fruit and veg inspire me to cook with them instead of tolerating them. But I'm inherently lazy and cheap. My solution has been an Urban Organics-like system, where they deliver a box every week, and I have to use it because I've already paid for it. It's a little more money, but I think the extra deliciousness, nutrition, and health of the planet are worth it. Besides, I find I eat less when it's good stuff - it's hard to mindlessly eat carrots the way you can do cheez doodles.

LOL at Pippin's "entertainment..." It reminds me of the time Mugsy got ahold of a phone book while we were out! :)

We're trying to do the organic thing, too. I definitely notice a taste difference. Yeah, the price is NOT fun! But you're right--a small price to pay for a lack of chemicals and stuff.

That's one cute picture of Pippin.

I never have a good hair day - you should be happy. And, funny about Pippin and the shread-fest. Dogs do weird things eh.

Thanks for the offer but hopefully everything is ok now with the Ramada. :)

The organics craze is starting to turn into the low-carb fad, where everything is getting smacked with an "organic" label. If you've read The Omnivore's Dilemma then you know many products aren't really organic in the true sense of the word. But if they are more tasty, and you can afford the prices, then they certainly do no harm, either.

When did Kroger turn ghetto????
