Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

I never heard that about the fruit/veggies, but it makes sense. I usually do that anyway - right after dinner I always go for the fruit.


I didnt know that about raw produce! Interesting! Your dinner looks fabulous, Im especially loving the appetizer! :D

We are camera-loving-junkies! LOL So my suggestion might perhaps be a far fetch, but an investment at that.. we have a Sony Alpa SLR... I adore it beyond words!! They have different models...more $$$$ to less $ but all SLR.

Have a GREAT Wednesday!:)


Thanks for the tip on eating fiber after a heavy meal. :)


Canon PowerShot SD850 IS
is a great, high quality point and shoot.
I've had mine for a little over a year and love it. Reviews on all sites are high, too.


You know I'd give my camera an A+. the Canon 1100 SD is also cheaper and highly rated.

These friends you enjoyed so much, could they be our friends too!?


I have a book called 'Eat this not that' and it's basically a guide to eating wisely and simply lowering calorie intake when you're eating out. It tells you the calories, fat and sodium for instance, a BK Big Fish compared to McDs Filet o Fish. Basically we can eat more 'healthy' by choosing an alternative meal or restaurant!

Anyway, my point is, I think the WORSE meals come from Macaroni Grill, when comparing chain restaurants. And if I remember correctly, the artichoke appetizer is horrendous in calories! Other interesting facts: Chick Fil A has the lowest calorie count per meal (less than 500 cals) and Panera bread was listed as one of the worst fast food chains! Outback Cheese Fries has like, 2100 cals (I remember that because when I read that I went OMG!). Also the Atlantic Salmon dish from Outback is super loaded with calories and fat (another dish I always ordered but not anymore!).

Food for thought! :)


I'll email you with the camera that I use for all the travels and "covert shots". I can't remember the name of it for the life of me today.

I adore Macaroni Grill and I hear ya re: tying up a waiter's station too long. If we stay over and beyond, the waiters are WELL compensated (and 9 times out of 10, my crew somehow includes them in the mix *LOL* Gotta love Philly)


Looks like you guys did an awesome job with portion sizes at Mac Grill! I LOVE those mugs and that pumpernickel bagel looks delish! what a yummy day :)

I have a casio exilim model s880 that i got last year for my birthday. So far, so good!
