Do you Neti?


I have had ENOUGH of this congestion, so this morning i brought out all the stops….THE NETTI!  Do any of you Netti-pot?  I find it always helps to get rid of nasal congestion once and for all.  According to WebMD, using a Netti pot is a form of nasal “irrigation…”

a therapy that uses a salt and water solution to flush out the nasal cavity.   Although several methods of nasal irrigation exist, one of the most popular is the Neti pot — a ceramic pot that looks like a cross between a small teapot and Aladdin’s magic lamp. Although nasal irrigation using the Neti pot has been around for centuries, its use is on the rise in the U.S., thanks to an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show and a fair amount of news coverage. The Neti pot originally comes from the Ayurvedic/yoga medical tradition.

Anyway, I used it this morning and am feeling a bit better…do you Neti?

I-HOP, You Hop, we all hop for I-HOP (and Golden Puppies)

Helloooooo!  So this morning my mum came down for a lil’ brunch action.  We hit up the ole’ I-HOP and boy was it hopping!  They said it would be a THIRTY minuted wait!  So we put in our name and off to Monster Pets we went to get Oscar his chew toys…ok fine.   They are pig ears. There I said it.  Gross, but he loves them. We also got him a cute bone toy with a squeaker in it for him to rip out like he always does play with it.

Ok, so while I was at Monster Pets, I fell in love…(and I was in a golden mood to begin with)

No joke, a lil’ tear might have dropped from my eye as we left.

Anyway, back to IHOP we went and got our meals in NO time!  That place is great and they even have a nice healthy menu that tells you all of the nutritional information and gives healthier alternatives (think egg substitute, turkey bacon and whole wheat pancakes).  Anyway, there are a LOT of menus menu options.

I went with the healthy option 2X2X2 (2 egg beater substitutes, two pancakes and two strips of turkey bacon).  I got thru one pancake, 1.5 turkey bacons and one bite of the egg substitute.  I SWEAR that place puts many fillers in their food because I was completely full after one pancake!  It was yum anyway…

But what was NOT yum was the scrapple Husband got with his “all you can eat pancakes.”  Yes you read that right- they do have all you can eat pancakes right now, and yes, he got scrapple.

And a close-up…

Anyway, the BEST thing I saw at IHOP was this sign….

It’s great- THIS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, IHOP IS GIVING AWAY PANCAKES in the hopes that you will donate to Make-A-Wish Foundation.  I think that is great-so great I might need some pancakes Tuesday 😉  OK, bye for now!  Toodles!

Super Shopper Saturday


Haha!  The shopper-pro is baaaaack!

After a long hiatus from the shopping world, I finally got my game on again yesterday.  Yes, it took an “occasion” to get my super-savings rear in gear 😉 but we prevailed!  I went with a friend to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets in Sanatoga, PA to outfit him for a new gig- Congrats on the promo, Eamon 🙂  These outlets DO NOT disappoint!  They are amazing-great stuff and great buys!  While we did get A LOT done, we also had A LOT of ridonk fun…

Like my hat?  LOL…

Also ridonk is the size of this dude’s feet…UNREAL!  I am making my Buddy Eamon train with me for Broad Street so of course he had to get some new sneakers and I was appaled to find out that he is a size 15!  yup 15!  How crazy right?!?!?  Check this out…

Crazy, no!?!?  Anyway, on the way back, we stopped over his parents’ house and got to play with two of the cutest dogs ever!  (Oscar, if you are reading this, of COURSE you are the most cute) hehe.  Their names are Bodhi and Joplin (love those names) and they were making out with each other- it was sooooo cute!

Anyway, that was the cuteness for the day.  How is your weekend going?  Have you done anything interesting?  Toodles!
