Lily, Pinky, and a Chobani Winner!

Our kids are loved spoiled rotten.  Well, Lily is spoiled. If you recall last week, Lily had a little toenail operation (requiring morphine, it was no small boo-boo!). Today I was opening the mail and found this…

Mail addressed to "Miss Lily M." -- a Get Well Soon card from Grandma H
Mail for “Miss Lily M.” — a Get Well Soon card from Grandma H
a hand-written get well note for Lil…

What a little princess, huh? I miss that little booger…can’t wait to see her this afternoon!

Thank you, Grandma H!

Can you tell what these are???
Can you tell what these are???

Pinky had a feeding last night as we’ll be gone for 10 days…2 mice for the big guy!

One down and one to go…

I would’ve gotten a shot of him actually EATING the mouse (super cool!), but I really wanted him to eat since he won’t get another opportunity for 10 days. And he eats best in the dark and in peace (he’s very finicky about his eating conditions!).

Aren’t you glad you 1) don’t eat mice, and 2) eat more than once every 10-14 days?!

Me too!

And the 2 lucky winners of Chobani yogurt are……..

1. Randomly selected: Michelle of Lucky Taste Buds

As an aspiring dentist (going to dental school next year!! wahoo!!) I voted for Doctors without Borders!!! :)

Info: Doctors Without Borders is an international emergency medical organization that provides lifesaving medical care to those who are victims of war and disaster regardless of race, religion, or politics, in more than 60 countries.

2. Most insightful, nutrition-related post goes to Ashley of Food, Fotos, and Fun!

For #3, greek yogurt is more healthy for many reasons. First it has twice the protein of regular yogurts, which is good for recovery after exercise and also for satiety. Chobani yogurt is also all natural with no preservatives or artificial flavors. This is great because why would you want artificial anything? This yogurt has REAL fruit! Their yogurt also includes 5 live & active cultures, including 3 probiotics. This is great for your digestive system, and I should know – I suffer from irritable bowl syndrome! And who can forget the importance of bone-building calcium! This is a great way to get your calcium even if you don’t like milk, etc. Calcium is especially important for kids building bones and older women who tend to loose bone mass. So pass me some greek yogurt please!!

Congratulations!!! Please send me your mailing addresses to [email protected] ASAP and I will get them over the Shari at Chobani. Enjoy!!!!!!!!

Thank you ALL for participating! If you didn’t win the Chobani, please consider submitting a recipe to the Prevention Cookbook for a chance to win THIS prize giveaway! All recipe submissions can be emailed to [email protected] and must be received by the 1st of January!

One lucky winner will win the giveaway and ALL participants will receive an electronic copy of the cookbook…at which time there are over 70 recipes!!!!

I am Chicago-bound in just a few here….

While I hope to remain blogolicious through the holidays, please bear with me in both posting and catching up with all you lovely writers! I have a more insightful post for tomorrow, but being kitchen-less and traveling may create some blog block…we shall see!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Safe travels, and thank you for bringing me so much joy this holiday season, and I do mean that!

Merry Christmas!

    Yeah, my blogging is definitely taking a bit of a break over the holidays, although I’m going to try REALLY hard to keep up!

    I can’t BELIEVE those are mice. EWWWW. When I saw that picture I was so confused…..yuck! I’m not going to lie though, I think I would kind of like to see the snake eat the mouse. Does that mean I’m weird…??

    I used turkey pepperoni turkey on the pepperoni bread last year, by the way, and NO ONE NOTICED!! This year my mom bought the pepperoni and she bought regular, bummer. But at least you know turkey pepperoni CAN be used!

    Have a VERY Merry Christmas!
