The Salad Case: Birki's

Workout: 20 min Strengthen and Tone Your Entire Body Yoga

Sorry if you get this twice, I accidentally deleted the pics :( Blogger fail!

My reading habit strikes again! This time it led to another missed alarm in the AM, but I was able to try this little 20 minute gem! I'm normally intimidated by level 3 classes, so I'm glad I tried it. Yes, there were some advanced poses, but you can always work towards those that you can't get.

The flow packed a punch in a short time and got me going. I also tried to go on some 10 minute quick walks because every little thing counts!

In the Salad Case Today, drum roll please...

  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 2 c roasted veggies: brussel sprouts, broccoli, squash, carrots, red onions (amazing)
  • 1/4 c roasted almonds
  • 1/4 c cranberries
Talk about cruciferous! This was such a "meaty" salad minus the meat!

Guess what I got in the mail last week? That's right, I got a case of the Birki's!

I love Birkenstock sandal's even though they are kind of pricey. The multi-colored ones are my faves and these bubble ones did not disappoint!

Shhh, RC hasn't seen these yet so let's try to keep this between us ;)

Are Birki's even cool now? I know they were the rage about 15 years ago - yikes (I'm old), but they are so comfy that I'm addicted to them!

They were half-off and I just couldn't resist! After all, everyone knows that half-off really means you can get more than one ;)
Do you guys follow this golden rule of shopping?

I'll leave you with this cute Labrador ornament that my friend Michelle got for us - she's awesome and knows that we'd go k-crazy over it. We did - isn't it the cutest? Thanks Michelle!

ADios :)

I remember when Birkis were the coolest thing ever and I bought fake ones at Kmart. So I'm old and uncool ;) I also believe that when things are such a good deal like that it is imperative to buy more. It's all to help the economy. Right? Right!

Great job getting in a workout!

Thanks and don't tell anyone, but my Birki's in high school were from Mervyn's! Boy I miss that store!
