Wordless Wednesday: Dog Camouflage

The other day I was getting ready to pick up my son from school. I had our dogs running around in the front yard, so I went to get them. My one dog, Bruiser was happy and wagging his tail at the front door. My other dog, Wolfie was missing. I was panicing a little. I started looking around our front yard. I finally heard some rustling in the bushes. She was hiding out under some bushes. Because of her coloring, and the bushes, she was camouflaged.

I thought my dog somehow escaped from our front yard. I then found her in the planter. Dog camouflage!

Totally Rad Running Songs

So you are probably already thinking, “oh great another running post, yawn”. But really this is more of a “really awesome music” type of post. And ya, maybe, you could even run or workout to it!

I could not run without music, or my Garmin. I do not run Amish! Seriously, I’m not sure if I could go a mile without stalking my pace, or loud music paving my way. I also don’t run with headphones or earbuds, unless I’m at the gym. I usually put my iPhone in my fuel belt and blast the music at it’s loudest. I may wince a little with the songs with the explicit lyrics come on though.

I’ve compiled a list of some of the raddest songs that I have on my iPhone currently. Some are old songs, some are new. But they work for me, and maybe they could work for you?

Hasbro zAPPed Games

My 7-year old son has been an avid iPad user since he received his as a Christmas gift almost two years ago.  We don’t spend a ton of money and games and apps for the iPad because he usually plays free games.

Although he loves play games on his iPad, he also likes playing traditional board games too.  I was excited to hear about Hasbro’s zAPPed games, which are iPad games with interactive games pieces that you move around on the screen of the iPad.  The games are free online through the App store and the game pieces are purchased for $17.99 and up, depending ont the game.

Just received these fun @HasbroGameNight Spellshot and Battleship zAPPed Edition Games for our iPads. Can't wait to try them out!
I was sent to zAPPed edtion games which were Battleship zAPPed Movie Edition and Spellshot zAPPed Edition.

With the Battleship zAPPed Movie Edition, players use their iPad screen as the playing surface when waging battles. Using proprietary technology, the iPad will recognize which ship pawns are in play and when they are moved.

All of the elements-Earth, Air, Fire, and Water are combined in the mesmerizing and magical game of Spellshot zAPPed Edition.  Once again, using proprietary technology, the iPad recognizes which of the four wizard pawn figures are placed on the screen as players use strategy and skill to “cast spells” with touch-screen gestures.

My son loved playing both of these games on his iPad. It gave him something new and different to play rather than the games that he usually plays which have him “growing something” or “trying to earn more coins”.  I’m really getting tired of the in-app purchases also. Luckily I have restrictions set on all of those but the gamemakers really get tricky with those.  I think my son’s favorite game was the Battleship zAPPed Edition because we own the board game and he also saw the movie recently.  He loved moving all of the ships around on the screen of his iPad. And the best part, he could play the game by himself rather than the board game where it takes two players.

Both games are an approximate retail price of $17.99. They are recommended for ages 8 and up.

Disclosure: I was provided copies of Battleshop zAPPed Movie Edition and Spellshot zAPPed Edition for review purposes. I was not given any cash. All opinions and photographs are my own.

A recap of my week via my iPhone. Just add in a busy work week, a migraine headache, and shuttling my son back and forth to his last week of summer camp.

Miracles do happen! I made ribs and mashed potatoes for dinner. The kid likes it! Ok, I outsourced the meal to Costco but I did heat everything up, and put it on plates.

Craft cabinet was also cleaned out. Everything in it’s place. A day later, I saw that my husband and kid attacked this cabinet looking for “something”.

As seen on my run tonight. Pretty sky! Four miles added to my monthly total. 34/42 miles #42milesinAugust

Beautiful sunset while I was running four miles the other night.

The bane of my existence. Putting in these contact lenses.

Wordless Wednesday: Making Bento Boxes

I went to a preview of the new Whole Foods Market opening up in Laguna Niguel this morning.  The store is still under construction and it is in the process of being stocked. Their grand store opening in on May 16th.  Everything looks so pretty.  We learned how they use local vendors for their produce and how they only buy the best quality meats, cheeses, and other items.  Just going on the tour made me hungry.  The store is beautiful.

After we took our tour we went to a adjacent restaurant and there were different stations to assemble a Bento.  I’m not creative at all so I pretty much slammed my food into the little compartments in the box.  Some of the other attendees got more creative with theirs.  I guess that I will never win that mom award, you know, “prettiest lunch”.

Wordless Wednesday: Splash

I had a busy weekend and my parents took Angry Kid overnight on Saturday.  My parents ended up meeting friends at Legoland on Sunday, and then ended the day at their friend’s house.  Angry Kid was diving into their pool at 6pm Sunday night. He was having a blast. You would have thought it was summer.
