We are very lucky in terms of proximity where we live.  It is only one of the many things we love about our home.  We a live ONE BLOCK from Whole Foods, Superfresh, and CVS!  Only TWO BLOCKS away are a pet store (so useful), a self-serve fro-yo bar, an amazing pizza place, a yummy bbq restaurant, a good fancy restaurant and a liquor store.  Gotta love it.  Anyway, I was thinking today about my usage of this places, primarily the Whole Foods vs. Superfresh scenario.  Here are the basics:  I used to go to Superfresh for almost EVERYTHING (including meat, dairy and produce) and Whole Foods for true specialty items (certain sauces, breads, prepared foods).  NOW though, I have been using Whole Foods for about 70% of my groceries, including meat, dairy (except Lactaid and my Coffee Mate Hazelnut Creamer), etc.

There are still some staples though that I NEED to get at Superfresh…for instance:

"Staples" ya know?

What are your thoughts on the super market situation?

Beat it! Beat it beat it! Just beat it beat it beat it!

Hahaha you get the point (of the song)!  OK, so this post is actually about TWO different items I finally pulled out of storage.

No...not the sunglasses- I just kinda like to take pics of myself 😉 hehe

Two years ago, Husband and I wed.  With this, we had a lovely registry that resulted in beautiful gifts…some of which I have not yet used… like this baby:

Get this title now?

Based on this recipe for (organic) white chocolate coconut cookies.  Organic because I was at Whole Foods and didn’t feel like going to the Superfresh…Across the street.  I actually got the initial idea from one of my favorite new bloggers, CatasTROPHYwife.  Hehe.  She is hilarious.  Anyway, let the baking begin!

Recipe called for coconut creme pudding but the store only had vanilla...oh well. I forgot until I saw this picture, they were so delish.

Um, can I say HOLY YUM.  Hope’s Cookies has NOTHING on me!

I used parchment paper as suggested in the recipe, and the cookies were baked better than I've ever seen. Only problem is it is pricey. Can you reuse it?

Note: the ones on the right are for my Dad who likes 'em burned

So, I wanted to let you in on a little secret clean-up trick I sometimes use…

Don’t judge.  OK, so the second thing I dragged out from the cobwebs was a Jewel Jet that I begged Husband to buy me and never used (typical)

Again, don’t judge.

Pre-treatment soaking in a fizzy bath

After the steaming…All clean!

OK, so tell me:  what item did you buy and never use?

PS:  Other examples of mine are:

1. A case of Fuse drink from Costco that the Husband still kids me about.  Only one was drunk…by my father-in-law.  Haha.

2.  A waterproof mp3 player.  I get on these kicks where  I NEED something, usually it pertains to a particular activity. In this instance I wanted to start swimming…I STILL DO…so I got this.

Haha!  I bet that title got ya!  Hehe.  So my WORKOUTS lately have been consisting of a lot of two-timing lately.

Two timing my running with the Elliptical of bike.

Two-timing my gym for the great outdoors (or vice versa) or splitting the time between (ex: 4 miles inside, 3 miles outside)

Two-timing Dr. Phil with the Phillies game in the background (three cheers for personal cardio tvs + “public” gym tvs!)

Note: this was YESTERDAY

Dr Phils wins EVERY time 😉  Haha.  Today I devoted my FULL workout to just him.

Two-timing my stretching by taking pics of myself…doesn’t everyone do that?!

Are you a two-timer?! Toodles!
