Just Your Average April Snowstorm

Oh yes, the snow is coming down like crazy here in Wisconsin. Down jacket?  Check!  I’m hoping the snow won’t stick around since it’s above 30*F, but it’s still just breaks every law of nature to have snow in April… whatever happened to April showers bringing May flowers?

Even so, I guess snow just comes with the territory.  I’ll deal with it! 😉


This morning, I started out my day with a new cereal – Nature’s Path Optimum Banana Almond.


Topped with unsweetened almond milk and an organic banana on the side.



Fabulous cereal!  Crunchy, very lightly sweet, and perfectly dense.  My only complaint was that I would have like a little more dried fruit than was in the mix… no biggie though!


Later this morning I headed to the local grocery store to pick up a few staples:


  • GTS Kombucha and Synergy
  • Organic spinach
  • Organic bananas
  • Smartwater


  • Food for Life Millet Bread (Matt’s recommendation)
  • Kangaroo Whole Wheat with Honey Pita Pocket Bread
  • Athenos Black Olive Hummus
  • Sesmark Brown Rice Thins
  • Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas


I went to a fabulous Power Yoga class this afternoon at the studio – it’s good to have alternative options for afternoon exercise when it’s a blizzard outside. ;) 

On that same topic, thank you all for you sweet comments and compliments on my Yoga Playlist post!  I have so much fun putting my playlists together, and I’m happy I could share a couple of my favorites with everyone.  Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and, as a side-note, don’t forget to “like” Health, Happiness, and Hope on it’s new Facebook Page

    We got a little teeny bit of snow in New Hampshire last night, but it quickly turned to rain because it was 36 degrees outside. Jealous of your Kombucha buys! I love it, but it’s so expensive!
