For those 5 people out there that actually read this blog, I apologize that it’s been a month since we’ve posted. We’ve been busy with life, but basically nothing life altering or even super interesting has been going on. Here’s a recap for anyone who wants to know what we’ve been up to in the last month:
- We watched the movie "Super Size Me". We both really liked it but recommend that you watch it at least an hour after you’ve eaten (preferably a fairly healthy meal). For anyone who doesn't know, it's basically a documentary about the disguistingness that is fast food. This previously extremely healthy guy eats nothing but McDonald's for 30 days and the documentary shows you the effects that it has on his body and his life. It's pretty alarming. I (Kristin) think all people, especially those with children, need to watch this film. I haven’t eaten McDonald’s in probably at least 3 years simply because I think it’s gross, but after watching this I vow never to eat at the following fast food restaurants: McDonald’s, Jack-in-the-Box, Whataburger, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Wendy’s, Long John Silver’s (does anyone even eat this anymore EVER?!?), Popeyes, Churches, Sonic (not including drinks) & Taco Cabana. There might be more but these are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head. I originally thought about boycotting Chick-fil-A and Chicken Express but have since come to my senses. If you are riding in my car and ask me to stop at one of the above places, you will get thrown out of the car. So don’t even try it :)
- We took a weekend trip to Canyon Lake with our dearest friends, the Simpson’s. It was such a fun time of fellowship and relaxing. We stayed in the presidential section of the condo complex - it was really nice! Here are some photos from playing miniature golf on Saturday afternoon and making smores on Saturday night:
- I am slowly becoming less of a fish loather. We have been trying to eat healthier in the last few weeks and since I know fish is great for you (and because I feel guilty about never cooking it for Collin), we split Atlantic Cedar Planked Salmon at Papadeaux a few weeks ago. I loved it! It's not real fishy tasting, which is what I don't like about fish. So, now I can add salmon to the list of foods that I like!
