Move It Monday + Vegas Pics

Standard

Oh, Monday. You come with a list of things to do, don’t you? For us, grocery shopping is at the top of that list. I know most people aren’t too fond of this chore, but if I’m not in a hurry, I actually enjoy it. It’s a chance to explore new options and brainstorm new meals.

Do you enjoy or dread going to the store? 

Here is a look at my workout line up this week.

Vegas Pictures

Julie and I walked around the Bellagio on Saturday, and stumbled the Jean Philippe Patisserre store. We bought a couple chocolate covered strawberries, which were pretty good (the white chocolate in particular), but the star of the show was this chocolate fountain. Unfortunately it was behind glass, otherwise we would have had our heads under it in a hurry. I can’t remember exactly, but there was something like a TON of chocolate flowing through this 27 foot high fountain!

Also in the Bellagio, there was this ceiling full of blown glass. So pretty.

In between the chocolate shop and the blown glass ceiling, there was an indoor garden. The flowers were so pretty.
