New Finds FTW

Hello all!

Last I left you I was about to enjoy this yummy thang…

That would be 2 ounces Pinnacle Whipped vodka, 1 ounce orange juice and 1 ounce club soda. Yum. I don’t think I could do more than one of these at a time. It is sweet, and definitely tastes a lot like a creamsicle! But may be a bit too sweet for a second round.

And WOW do they have a lot of recipes on their website!

Saturday night we took it easy.

Wine was poured…

And crab cakes were served!

I LOVE crab cakes, and was so happy when the guy suggested them for dinner šŸ™‚ That and pasta salad made a great Saturday dinner.

Sunday I had a work event at a Rays game. I never realized how much went on in the Rotunda before a game! So many booths, music and activities. I was there during lunchtime and wasn’t in the mood for the typical ballpark fare. Luckily Tropicana Field has added many new food vendors that offer a variety of options. I chose a Boar’s Head deli sandwich.

Roasted chicken, pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato and Dijon mustard on pumpernickel. It was $10(!) But was definitely a hefty size and hey, Boar’s Head is quality meat!

And, um, this is kinda funny.

Saw this on the way back from my car…

Yay for Murals for Mutts! If you haven’t heard of them before, check them out. It’s a great organization combining art, community and awareness.

Yesterday I did my weekly grocery shopping at Earth Origins. My goods included this baby.

I plan to use it for dry brushing, which is a new concept I just learned about. So many different benefits!

I joined my friend for a quick workout sesh at her building’s gym. Then we headed out for dinner to Central Avenue Oyster Bar.

She ordered the Oysters Trio and a caprese salad. Oysters are not my thing and I ended up with the Shrimp and Crawfish Pasta.

It was flavorful and creamy, but the pasta was a bit overcooked and the shrimp were a bit chewier than I prefer. Probably not the best dish to choose at this place, but overall you can’t go too wrong with a creamy pasta dish šŸ™‚

After dinner we were in the need of a sweet treat. Off to Yogurtology!

That would be oatmeal cookie with graham cracker crumbs, white chocolate chips and drizzles of caramel…mmm…perfection. It’s so hard to not fill up those huge containers they give you, but we did a good job of not letting our eyes grow bigger than our stomachs.

Today I came home to this.

If you haven’t heard of Open Sky, check it out! Most things are out of my price range, but it’s a neat site. I got this SunWarrior Protein Powder when Gina Harney (a.k.a. Fitnessista) had a sale on it. It took them 2 weeks to ship it ( šŸ˜¦ ) but I’m excited to finally try it. I’ve never tried a protein powder, but Gina raves about this stuff. Going to hop on the smoothie train!

Update: I did not realize at first that this was the “natural” flavor instead of the “vanilla” I was supposed to get until I got an email from Open Sky. They explained that they sent the wrong one, but would be sending me the correct one free of charge. In other words I got two of these huge bags for the price of one (which was $42 on sale). AND they were going to give me a $5 credit on my Open Sky account. Talk about great customer service!

Conversation Starter: Do you have new products you’re excited to try this week? Any great customer service stories?
