Unpacking pains

After an uneventful plane ride home from Baltimore with Ali and Julie, I faced my worst nightmare: Unpacking!  (Borrowed this gorgeous airport shot from Ali!  Picnic lunch, yay!)

Oh my Omega!

I made a smoothie for breakfast with a sample of Barlean’s Organic Oils Pomegranate Blueberry Total Omega Swirl.  It’s a complete and balanced source of Omega-3, 6 and 9.  It is 100% vegan because it’s plant based.  No fish oil that makes me squeamish!  This smoothie contained: 2 ice cubes 1/2 cup of orange juice [...]

This Cat…
