Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one} I have had to temper my obsession with McDonald's mocha frappes.  A little research revealed that a medium mocha frappe contains 500 Calories. Considering that I suck one of those things down in about five minutes and could easily drink three or four a week - I had to make a change.  So McDonald's fruit smoothies are a new favorite - at half the calories it's a splurge I can live with!

{two} For those of you who were wondering, Steven *did* take out the whip cream on Friday.  (Although I think he may have done it out of spite after reading Wednesday's post - either way - it was done!)  :)

{three} I have a new toy - and I'm in love.  At the suggestion of Chloe I purchased the Nike + iPod Sports Kit to help track my distance, speed and time during my morning runs and I am thoroughly impressed.  It is the best $30 I have spent in a long time!  It's a great motivation to be able to track your progress during your runs and know whether or not you are hitting your goals. 

{four} I just feel good these days.  I'm at peace.  I wish I could say that I've found some miracle method to handling stress or that I'm just so great at managing difficult circumstances - but that would be untrue.  I know it's just that God has granted me a peace over the past few weeks that I haven't felt in a very long time. It's so amazing to sleep easy at night....

{five} I forgot my cell phone at home today.  Grr...I feel completely lost without it!  Seriously considering driving home on my lunch break to pick it up. 

{six} It's been a week since I began the Oil Cleansing Method and I am impressed.  I think I may adopt this as my every day method of cleansing.  Check back tomorrow for a full review if you would like to know more.

{seven} I am married to an incredible man.  I'm so in love with him.  Truly - there is no one who makes me feel more happy than Steven.  We just laugh, and play and cut up together.  Every day is a gift when I'm with him.  Married life is GOOD.  :)

{eight} I've teamed up with Brittney at Sue Bell Blog Designs to host a giveaway for a free blog makeover.  Check it out here and be sure to enter!

{nine} I noticed that one of the prongs on my wedding ring had broken last Thursday.  Almost had a small panic attack - what if my diamond had fallen out?  I took it to the jewelers and it is being fixed.  But I have been walking around with no ring on my finger since Thursday - and I kind of feel like a tramp.  At least I have a glaring tan line on my ring finger as a symbol of my commitment.  So ready to get my ring back!

{ten} HAVE A BLESSED AND PRODUCTIVE WEEK!!!!  Happy Miscellany Monday!

I LOVE the Nike + stuff!!

And I don't know about the follow!! Usually, it's at the top, but I have to add manually a lot too ... like copying the link and sticking it in the "add" part on Dashboard. Woof.

Arg. That makes me sad. I looked at it, and it should be up top with "Share." *fingers crossed*

Chloë said...

So excited you got the sports band! Don't you just love it?! :]

And your no. four makes me happy. There's nothing better than the peace God grants us just when we need it.

Happy Monday! :]

Great list! I've never had the McD's fruit or frappe, who knew there was somewhere besides Jamba Juice or Starbucks!? :)

Angela Noelle said...

I've wondered about those McD's smoothies. They make them look delicious on the billboard! I'm just worried I'll go in for a fruit smoothie and leave with a double cheeseburger, large fries and a milkshake ;)

I'm totally the same way when my ring is getting fixed/cleaned. I hate that feeling!!!! Yeah, and it's crazy when you don't realize how many calories are in a certain drink you love.... serious sad face!!

capperson said...

I've been really wanting a smoothie and been wondering about McD's! I really need to try them :)

Joanne@ Blessed... said...

You have such a great blog. (I'm herer from Carissa's)

Thanks for letting me know about the Mcd's frappe. I had no idea! My husband and I have sucked down five in the last month.

...could be why my scale is up two pounds, eh?

Mateya said...

OMG I LOVE McDonalds frappes (caramel)...500 calories is ridiculous! They need to make a light or skinny version like Starbucks!

I hate not having my ring either...it's been away at the jeweler for a month already getting the wedding band made for it, so I had to buy a fake ring to wear because I hate not having one on!

Ms. Emily Ann said...

Those McDonalds smoothies look delicious! I have been dying to try one! And I hate when I forget my cell phone, but after a few hours it kind of feels peaceful :) Glad you caught the broken prong before you lost your diamond, that would have been awful!

Barbie said...

Everyone's been talking about the McDonald's Frapps, but after finding out how many calories are in them, I think I will pass!

I have forgotten my cell phone at home and rushed home at lunch to get it.

So thankful you are feeling at peace. God is so good!

Happy Monday!

Brittney said...

I just sent the hubs out to get me a McD's smoothie! :) I have yet to try one - I have heard they are really good!

PS. I'm loving the entries for the giveaway so far - I got an order already! :) Thanks again!

I thought about buying the Nike + stuff but decided to wait until I was actually out and running for a month, it lasted 2 days! LOL - I've got to get back in shape so I joined a dance class, nothing like watching a 35 year old woman doing leaps jumps and turns to motivate you into loosing weight!

{five} i HATE that i forgot my phone today also, that is SO rare, but i blame it on the fact that i was up way to early and the hubby was getting ready to bug bomb the basement as we left for the work day, ugh...

Lindsey said...

You have a tan line? Mine has turned into a little divet the ring has been there so long. Heh. :)

Mrs. Pick said...

I've been wondering what the McD's fruit smoothies were like! I might have to give one a try!

Brittany said...

I hate forgetting my cell phone! I completely feel lost without it too.

Thank goodness I don't like frapps! Those things sound dangerous! I'll have to try the smoothies though.

Hope you had a good day!
