Have you had one of these? OMG! They're heavenly - for real!! The Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp candy bar = YUMM-O!
I was STARVING as I shopped for items for dinner at the grocery store yesterday, so while waiting in the check out line, I grabbed one of these little bars. I have to admit I was skeptical, because I'm not really that thrilled with Skinny Cow ice cream bars. The Heavenly Crisp candy bar is delicious, however. I got the milk chocolate one and it literally melts in your mouth. And who can beat a candy bar that has 3 grams of fiber in it and is only 110 calories? It's a nice afternoon snack with barely over 100 calories and a candy bar that will actually keep you full thanks to the fiber. LOVE IT!!

Romantic Getaway

My husband and I are planning a very special trip to the Monterey/Carmel area in October. I'm a planner by nature, so I'm starting to think about our itinerary already. Does anyone have suggestions for:
  • hotels
  • restaurants
  • things to see/do
  • a place to get a good cup of coffee
  • any misc. tips

True Colors

My grandma used to say that people will always eventually show you their "true colors." As I continue to get older and (thankfully) wiser, I see just how true that statement is. I have been reminded of this a lot in the last six months as I've been by my best friend's side as she has gone through the motions of ending a five year relationship, gaining insight about the true colors of people who were in her life - against her better judgement, losing the father figure in her life, and gaining inner strength.
So, when I came across a quote I wrote down a long time ago that talks about the measure of one's character, I thought it fitting to share. It reminds me of the hard, cold truth and lesson in life I've had to learn about people....
Via Ann Landers:

"Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good."
