It’s hard to believe Kimm and I have been together for 10 years.
And today we just took time to celebrate and reminisce 🙂
Out to lunch at Uno’s–we decided to try somewhere different this year due to running into rude/inconsiderate people at Olive Garden every year–can you believe we got seated next to some doozies at this place too! I think they are ATTRACTED to us!! First there was a table of four imbibing women who were VERY loud…I guess getting drunk in the middle of the day makes you annoying like that….then we were seated with a crying baby behind us and the husband was on his cell phone, loudly, NON-STOP and even managed to lean in over OUR booth while talking on his cell phone to try to soothe his baby crying…really…I can’t make this stuff up people!
Well, we tried really hard to block all that out and enjoy our meal which I think we did a pretty good job. But we did decide that next year, no Uno’s…maybe we’ll just order out somewhere 🙂
We took an unexpected trip to Target, to purchase an exercise ball because I was researching online and found out that by bouncing 5 minutes/day it can help circulation to bulging discs, speeding the healing process. Well, we got the exercise ball and a whole bunch more! I scored with a new pair of jeans ($10 on clearance!) and a new t-shirt ($5 on clearance!).
Dinner we ordered out…veggie grinder that we split since we were still so full from lunch!
It was a very relaxing day and one of the best parts is that I didn’t do dishes all day 🙂
Here’s to another 10 years!
Enjoy my finds from around the web this week…there were a BUNCH!!

And on that note…my favorite article explaining WHY I am vegetarian…
In the May+June 2012 issue of VegNews, law student Cody Carlson shared his experience working as an undercover investigator for Mercy For Animals. Readers were so moved by his first-hand account of the horrors of factory farming, and asked that we post the piece on VegNews.com so that Cody’s story can be told to even more people. The article is presented here in its entirety.
