What I'm Lovin' Right Now

First and foremost--the glorious fall weather...and the gorgeous red and orange trees. My yard looks it's best in the fall and that's saying something.

Second, Kneaders artichoke portabello soup--pure comfort food. Enjoy with a turkey, bacon, avocado on focaccia and a diet coke. Get a cream cheese brownie for dessert. Clearly, I will be packing on the L Bs for the winter.


Third, impactfitnesswear.com. Seriously folks--the best work out clothes I have ever worn, hands down. Plus they are dang cute. If you live in the greater SL area, I beg you to make an appointment with Megan and go to her studio at her home. She was down to earth, helpful, and non intimidating and I am in love with my new stuff. I am a big believer in buying nice workout clothes that you love--then you will love to work out.




Fourth, The tv show Glee. Maybe it's just because it's new and different. But I can't get enough. I love the songs, I love the dancing. The cheerleading coach steals the show and I love Will's wife too--all great, all hilarious.


Fifth and Finally, Snapfish Christmas Cards. I love the look of nice stationary quality Christmas cards from Tiny Prints. I was all geared up to order mine from there when I got an email from Snapfish announcing that they now carry stationary photo cards--and guess what--They are half the price of Tiny Prints! I downloaded my pictures and ordered mine in about 10 minutes. They already came and I love them.
Come December, I will be sitting on the sofa, drinking a cup of hot cho and patting myself on the back for my discriminating taste and exceptional forethought in ordering early. Go check it out. Use coupon code Fall2009 for a 35% discount (expires Nov 2.) The best part is, there is no additional fee to have pictures on the back of the card--I have six small pictures of my family. You can also personalize the card with your family names, etc.

I love that sandwich at Kneaders!

I can't comment on workout wear, I'm in a dormant period right now and it shows.

I love Glee!

How awesome that you already have your Christmas cards in hand! We are always scrambling to get them done around the 22nd of December!

I adore Glee, too. I just can't get Jimmy to watch it with me:(


Are you being paid for this post?

Mandee said...

Is that why I can't get to the gym- because I have ugly workout clothes? I'm calling that girl, because Kneaders is making me chubby, too.

p.s. I am on the hunt for Christmas cards, so thanks for the tidbit.

Denise--that's funny you should ask because after I wrote this post, I thought, I should get a kick-back for the advertising.

No, sadly, I just want everyone to love their workout clothes and have great Christmas cards and fine television and get chubby at Kneaders so I'm not the only one.

Loving Glee....Bill is totally into as well. I hate that there is a girl cheerleader named Quinn, though. That sucks for my Quinn.

We at Tiny Prints really appreciate the post! Please let me know if you or your readers have any questions about our company.

Good tip. I was thinking of ordering a template on etsy to escape the Costco card everyone has or the pricey tinyprints.

Amy M. said...

Wait, did someone from tinyprints REALLY just comment or is he a friend?

Rick Bucich said...

I'm with Tiny Prints. Even though we're mentioned as being too expensive, I'm glad we still come to mind. I'm not here to be promotional but we have addressed the price issue and have launched the following lower priced cards: http://www.tinyprints.com/shop/discount_christmas_photo_cards.htm. Thanks again!

HILARIOUS that you really have someone from Tiny Prints commenting! I do love their stuff, but have to agree about the prices! So, Rick, keep the lower priced(but just as cute)items coming!!!

Kimmie said...

who's it gonna be next....Oprah?

Ashley said...

Whoa--Tiny Prints is commenting? Awesome. Rick, if you come back a third time, I'll have you know I got my baby announcements from Tiny Prints and they were great. I'm going to go check out his discount Christmas cards.

The rest of the post was good too!

Brooke! I've missed you and needed to have a nice fat post/dose of Brooke. I am def skeptical about replacing Tiny Prints with Snapfish... Hmmm. I'll have to do some in-depth searching, cuz I heart tiny prints.

Also wanted to tell you I had a dream about you. Nothing wonky. You've just been on my mind.

Jaime said...

I thought you might ask and I wish I could say it was something super exciting and original alas, we were just playing with all of our kids in your backyard and at some point, Sam and Mark showed up to join the fun.

I must have been reading your blog right before I went to bed, whatever it was, it stuck in my subconscious.

Thanks for the kind words! I didn't mean to hijack the thread (really). However, since price of Tiny Prints does come into play, I encourage anyone interested to reach out and ask for my personal discount code (I can't post it publicly).

I need to get my hands on those workout pants! Love them!
