It's raining, but I've got sunshine in a bowl with Acai..

Yes, I'm eating my Acai bowl. The picture above is not my bowl (it's the only one I could find online that is similar.. Imagine a bowl of pineapple, mango and bananas with acai, and granola... Yummy.. Acai, like I explained before is a little like yogurt, but not as thick. It's good for you, and it tastes best when it's cold. The only thing I really don't like about is that it tends to stick on your lips, so I have to remind myself to look in the mirror before leaving the office. I'm the kind of person that gets Kool-Aid moustaches after drinking too much of it. IF this is you as well---you will need to check the mirror as well.

It is in fact raining outside, but the past week up until now, we've been experiencing AWESOME weather. It's been beautiful! I spent my birthday weekend planting Spring flowers, and just enjoying the sun, and my family. Between my friends at work, and at home, I've been feeling like a princess-or rather a queen lately. :)

My youngest is on Spring vacation, and I'm taking a few days off to be with him-it's raining today, but I don't mind-I'm working today. It might as well snow. Yesterday was beautiful, and I'm hoping Friday will be nice again because I'm taking it off.

I'm on a new health kick now. Eating Acai, and walking laps at the high school next to my house. A mile a day--for the next 30 days. Wish me luck-I need to lose 10 pounds of winter blues.

That bowl does look good. I love all the ingredients. I'm going to have to try it.

Have a good evening.

Julie, your weather and Accaiae sounds great. I would like to try some of each. I guess it would get into my beard and I hate when that happens.
Good weight on the weight loss. My daughter started on Herbslife, I think it is called and has lost 19 pounds and 4 inches on the waist, in a month. She is happy and hasn't eaten any junk food in that time.
You women and your weight. I am at 170 and was 160,60 years ago. Om me the ten pounds looks cute.

The acai bowl looks great.I have been wanting to try acai for a while now.
Any yes, the weather has been beautiful. I didn't mind the rain today, either. We need it, and it has been so nice for the last week or so, so I couldn't really complain. My boys are off next week so I am actually hoping it will be nice for them.

I still haven't tried Acai (but at least I know how to pronounce it!).
