Nini's protect the bald eagle sign
The temporary residents of Montreal Club: So, it's not really an official club, but as everyone in the photo above is from different parts of the world, I thought it sounded clever! LeAnne on the left is from Australia and is here for the next three years. Kristen, in the middle is from Vegas and is here for probably another 12 months. She's expecting her fourth baby in June! We've started an informal gathering at least once a week to eat or talk. Today, I we were headed over to Kristen's to make crepes. When she came to pick the girls up for our carpool run to school she chimes that instead of crepes, let's wash our cars. I quickly replied timidly, OK? Anyway, I wasn't sure of the whole let's wash our own car thing, but it turned out to be a lot of fun, with three cars in her driveway, and each of us washing our car, and scrubbing it inside. I brought over our shop vac and we all took turns vacuuming it out. They weren't sure about the whole self-portrait thing, but they'll get used to it!
Ice Cream Sandwiches: These sandwiches turned out to be yumm-a-licsious! They are made from pillsbury chocolate cookie dough and vanilla ice cream. Simply put the cookies on the cookie sheet, bake, and freeze for about 10 minutes. Once the cookies are slightly hard, take a 1/4 cup or less of ice cream and push it on one of the cookies. Finish by sandwiching another cookie on top of the ice cream and eat! I actually liked them better the second day - so perhaps freezing them for an hour might make them taste even yummier! Calorie count on these is about 250, you can use light ice cream and it will be less; as each cookie is 100 calories. They were really easy to make!
Running shoes and weight goals: I decided to hit a few more stores and ended up finding a nice pair of Nike running shoes that work really well. I've managed to run everyday, three of the days for 30 minutes and one of the days 40 and today I walked with the double stroller ( the girls are the same weight just a bit taller than last year) for a half an hour and when Craig came home I ran for 25 minutes. I've lost three pounds and fit into a pair of jeans that I couldn't button a month ago! Yeah!
