I know, I barely post anymore and when I do it’s about something boring like yogurt. Maybe yogurt is boring to you, but I, for one, love it and whenever I see a new type of yogurt, I want to try it. My main yogurt buying criteria is that it doesn’t have splenda in it. Other than that, I’ll try whatever, though higher protein, lower sugar ones are more appealing to me.
Dannon Oikos Triple Zero Coconut Creme. What does Oikos even mean? Because isn’t there a Stonyfield Oikos yogurt too? And also, the NFL has an official yogurt?
This yogurt had 120 calories, 7 grams of sugar and 15 grams of protein. It was sweetened with stevia. I thought it was… fine? I mean, I wasn’t like, “OMG this is the best thing ever” but it was good enough. I’d buy it again, I guess.
This yoplait greek whipped yogurt has 100 calories, 12 grams of sugar and 9 grams of protein. I guess it’s sweetened with fructose. I loved it! It wasn’t filling in the slightest and I’m sure lactic acid esters of mono diglyercides aren’t the best for you, but it tasted like a delicious fruity dessert.
We celebrated Alexander’s birthday this past Saturday. All of his grandparents (my mom, my dad and stepmother and Jason’s parents) came down for the occasion. In addition, we had about 25 other guests, mostly our friends, some with kids and some without.
I took Friday off to party plan. The theme of the party was “birthday party.” Eff these fancy Pinterest parties! (Though you know I pinned a bunch of them!) We got a bunch of appetizers from Costco and decorations and balloons from Party City.
That brown stuff is Brownie Brittle and I think it has crack in it. The cake was from Publix. If you order a first birthday cake from them (it has to actually say 1st birthday in the icing), they give you a free smash cake for the baby. The smash cake was actually really big. I thought they’d just give him a cupcake or something.
He didn’t know what to do at first, but quickly put his hands into the cake. Not sure how much of it he actually ate but he got it all over himself and had a good time.
So this might seem sort of like a cop out picture of winter, but my baby was born during the winter time, so in addition to cold weather and warm drinks, his birthday also signifies winter. Okay, fine, I was too busy this weekend to think of anything else.
More birthday pictures to come!
