And So the Marketing Deluge Begins…

 Target Baby Book

Last year I received one of these the day BEFORE I found out I was pregnant!  

This time, I managed to evade their detection for 3 months – probably due to wearing a parka hood and/or sunglasses when entering the store.  I know it wasn’t due to purchase patterns because I haven’t made any changes or bought anything baby-related besides my usual California Baby Calendula Cream.  It still irks me that the booklet states: “Thank you for being a Targt Baby registrant”, as I have NOT registered since 2004 when my son was born!

This time around, I am much better educated about health and safety, and therefore plan to minimize the plastics and all-around over-consumption of baby goods.  Simple is better – especially in light of our Paleo lifestyle!

Any product recommendations from other Paleo Moms out there?

Celebrating 13 Years with My Kitties

My kitties turned 13 years old this past weekend on March 29th.  Time sure flies!

Highlights from the first 12 years

To celebrate, we got the girls some new Cat Faeries nip toys and fed them raw egg yolks in addition to their grain-free kitty kibbles and freeze-dried raw food.  These Paleo Puddies love their raw egg yolks!!  They slurked them up lickety-split!

When presented with their gifts, Panda sniffed each one, clawed and swiped her choice away to play.  She chose the oyster – so Raven got the fried egg.  (Snooze and you lose!)  Some of their most “well-loved” toys include the shrimp sushi roll, birds and the oyster.  The catnip in Cat Faeries Legendary Cat Toys is especially potent.  There’s nothing else quite like it.

Some of their most “well-loved” toys! Rabbit recently bit the dust – they actually shredded and unstuffed it!

Happy Birthday Kittens!  Looking forward to many more years together.  <3

New FAVORITE Treat!

OMG – these are SO good!  Where have they been?!

cherry fruit bites

Seriously – are they new or did I just miss the boat?  Wow.  Found these at the co-op today. Gluten-free, all-fruit snacks that taste like Twizzlers!  And no tapioca, either.  Love the Annie’s Bunny Fruits to bits, but the tapioca can be bothersome for me.  The cherry are my faves, but the strawberry and grape are nummy too.

Ooh, I’m in trouble now…

Like Walking a Tightrope… or Trampoline?

Found this on Clearance at JM Cremps, Mall of America. Score!!

Look what I found at the Mall of America yesterday.  Yowsa!

Our backyard is “heavily wooded”, so we have lots of trees to choose from for this new summertime activity.  We could all use a little more balance – and FUN!

Mark Sisson is a HUGE fan of slacklines!  (Where else would I see such a thing?!)

Too bad it’s -14F today and we’re blanketed in snow and ice.  Can’t wait until Spring to try it!

Here’s how the Pros do it:

Downton Abbey Premiere (Season 4) Tonight!

Downton Abbey Season 4 premiers tonight on PBS Masterpiece!  

Yippee!

I was so lucky to be invited to see it early at the MN PBS showing in December with my friend Emma (she’s British!)  at the St. Paul Landmark Center, complete with tea samplings.
That was one of the quickest hours I’ve spent in a while!  [Thanks Again, Emma!]

Landmark Center

I’m a huge fan of both the show and tea, so when I saw this, I just had to get it for Christmas!
It was challenging to reserve it for Christmas morning, but worth the wait.

Downton Abbey Tea

Both of these teas are excellent, by the way!

Why am I writing about Downton Abbey here, besides the fact that I love it and have already pre-ordered the Season 4 DVD?  Well, according to my friend Alison Golden of PaleoNonPaleo.com (who is also British!) Downton Abbey is 7/10 Paleo!  Who Knew?!

Read here to find out who the most “Paleo” character is!

And tune in to PBS tonight and enjoy – the season premier is awesome as always,
even without our beloved Matthew Crawley!
