Sunday Smiles :)

Lots and lots of things to smile about today...

But, before I forget... big shout out of Congratulations to Rachelle who just passed her NASM certification exam and is now a certified personal trainer!

And another to Suz who just ran her first marathon - so exciting!

I love these Oh! Naturals Flavoured Banana Chips... I was sent several packages in 3 different flavours - Strawberry, Chocolate, and Natural, to sample.  They are awesome. And they are available in Canada!  You can read my full review on my food blog at

And yes, in Canada, we are allowed to put that extra ' u ' in some words... I normally don't, but lots do.

I have used this Simple Hydration bottle on a couple of runs now, tucked in the back of my waistband.  I love it!  At first I thought it felt like it was pulling my capris down in the back... it wasn't, and after I realized that, I forgot all about it.  The only caution I have... don't use COLD water!  Ha!
I am so enamoured of my new Handful GREY tank and bra.  Grey is not normally my color but this is absolutely gorgeous! 
I roasted some red peppers yesterday and made hummus.  Mmmmmm.  Will put the recipe up on my food blog on Monday.  We ate it for lunch with raw veggies on Saturday, and then today I put a heap of it on my lunch salad.  Garlicky and delicious!

I got this box of goodies recently in the mail... from a company called Gfreely... that would be gluten-free.  I won a giveaway at Fitness Fanatic a while back.  So excited about this monthly gluten-free product delivery service... and a chance to sample some things that are not available for sale here in Canada.
I am about to call my older sister and have a nice long chat with her on the phone, while I drink a cup of my favorite Celestial Seasonings tea... I call it Tiger Tea.  So spicy!

What's making you smile today?

  5. Thanks for the shout out Elle! So excited for Suz!! I need to get one of those Handful tanks. They look so cute! Maybe I will put it on my Christmas list:)

  6. I love the grey handfuls too. so pretty. I can't wait for the orange and I am not an orange wearing kind of person. BUT I need that orange bra! HA! and I agree Simple Hydration is so easy to forget about. I love mine
