Generosity

Good morning!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  I did a lot of running around – shopping and a make-up trial at the Dior counter with one of my bridesmaids (loved their airbrush foundation, but I’m too poor that), spin class, strength training, lots of muching on my low cal peanut butter cookie bites, and a second wedding shower.

This post is a random recap from this weekend – more food focused posts to come later in the week! 😉

Pre-spin class fuel: light wheat toast topped with cocoa bliss (free sample from Artisana) and banana slices.  With a bite out of it, of course.  I swear it will be my trademark.

Remember how I told you guys about the free yogurt coupon?  I picked mine up early last week but finally got around to eating it after a workout.

At 190 calories (and 29 grams of sugar), this is not a yogurt I would buy on a regular basis.  Some of those 29 grams come from the natural milk sugar (lactose) in the product, but the third and fourth ingredients on the label are also responsible.    It tasted okay but was not as thick as the greek yogurts I typically enjoy.  As an RD I can appreciate the active cultures, but many yogurts (not just Activia) contain them. 

Get your own free sample!

If you haven’t grabbed your freebie yet, get to the store today – it’s your last chance!

Thanks to the generous people at Dannon for the opportunity to try the product.  Has anyone tried the French variety?

Speaking of generosity, my wonderful neighbors all pitched in and threw Adam and I a second shower (you can read about the one hosted by my bridesmaids here).  They all contributed to purchase this for our new home: Zoomed: Master Forge 4-Burner Green LP Gas Grill

Next summer will be filled with grilled eats for sure!  It’s one of the largest grills I’ve ever seen.  They picked it based on a bunch of research and the fact that the one burner is separated – perfect for making sure my veggies don’t co-mingle with whatever meat I might be preparing! 😉

We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family – 19 days until we’re husband and wife!

    Awesome grill! You guys are going to love having that.

    I’ve been lucky to experience a lot of generosity… friends sharing good meals, fellow bloggers sharing tips and products. People constantly amaze me. 🙂

    That is such a nice gift for the both of you! I just started a new job and I feel like everyone has been very generous with their time and patience with teaching me what I need to know to succeed. I feel very good about that.

    Awesome grill! That’s so nice of them all to purchase a new grill for you guys. It will definitely come in handy next summer 🙂
    Yesterday my mom picked up what I needed at the store! She didn’t have to but it saved me a trip 🙂

    That’s a bummer about the Activia yogurt stats. I like their regular yogurt, but also noticed it has a lot of sugar. That’s so exciting that your wedding is just around the corner. You’re going to be a stunning bride!

    I’m a huge fan of thick tangy greek yogurt!!!

    What awesome neighbors you have! That gave me warm fuzzies reading about that!
