A Great Way to Start the Week – Ice Cream, Nature Walk, and Zombies! Oh My!

Variety is the soul of pleasure.
– Aphra Behn

This just about sums up my life. I NEED variety in my life…I don’t like to eat the same foods everyday, I prefer to run different routes every week, I like to rotate clothes so I don’t have to wear the same outfits all the time, etc., etc.  Are you this way too? Please tell me I’m not the only one 🙂

For a Monday, today was a pretty darn good day.

Started the day off with some tasty yogurt and fruit – half an apple diced, vanilla Greek yogurt, a few walnuts and pecans chopped, a few raisins, some flax seed, cinnamon, and top it all off with some shredded coconut.

After work, came home and whipped up some tasty Italian Sausage Fried Rice – recipe coming soon.  Someone wanted to be in the food shot!

After dinner we went for ice cream! Dairy Queen on the south side of Lansing is open again for the season so we swung by so I could get the oh so fabulous, Pecan Mudslide – my favorite!

It was such a nice day – got all the way up to 62 degrees! Spring is on its way here in MI so we couldn’t let it pass us by and we decided to go to Fenner Nature Center in Lansing for a walk.

And so Noah could snap some photos – he’s been itching to get out lately and we just haven’t been able to make it happen.

A lot of the trails were still icy and a bit snow covered, but it was nice to be in the out of doors anyway.

And we made a cool discovery – a totem pole that I had never seen before.

On our way out we did get surprised by 4 deer just hanging out.  It was a short walk, but so worth it after we saw these guys.

And finally to top off a great day – we watched the season finale of The Walking Dead. Crazy!  Does anyone else watch this show?!? I’m not big on horror movies/shows, but this show is awesome! Can’t wait to see what will happen next season!

Have a great night!
