Mocha Cappuccino

She probably doesn't remember this, but years ago my sister Karen introduced me to the Mocha Cappuccino drink by Bolthouse Farms. I absolutely love it! They make fruity drinks too, but the mocha is my favorite by far. I usually buy it at Wal-Mart but it's available at other grocery stores too. It does not have a strong coffee taste (which is good because I only like sweetened coffee drinks) actually seems more like creamy chocolate milk. It's so smooth going down!

It has no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no gluten and no genetically modified ingredients. It provides 18 Amino Acids which are essential building blocks required to grow, repair and maintain your body. SOME of the nutritional info is as follows:

Per 8 oz serving:
10g protein
150% Vitamin C
150% Vitamin B12
150% Vitamin B6
45% Calcium
20% Vitamin D
20% Magnesium
20% Zinc
10% Iron
8% Vitamin A

The label on the bottle says "Our Perfectly Protein Mocha Cappuccino is a smooth blend of 100% Arabica coffee and low-fat milk. We then add premium cocoa and a touch of Madagascar vanilla extract to round out the flavors." Now doesn't that sound delicious?

Best Sno Cone

On our way back to Tulsa from Colorado, we stopped in Norman, OK and spent the weekend visiting my brother Greg and his wife Chelsea. They took us to an Eskimo Sno stand which was right down the street from them. I got a Strawberry Chocolate sno cone and Craig got a Margarita Swirl sno cone. I wasn't sure if I'd like the chocolate part of mine but it was very delicious (the thin chocolate syrup tasted a lot like the thicker Hershey's chocolate syrup). The next day, we stopped and got a large Margarita Swirl sno cone to split. It was sooooo good--it had fresh squeezed lime juice on top and was served with a sour straw. I'd say it was the best sno cone I've ever had!

Boy, oh boy I wish I had an Eskimo Sno just down the street from us in Florida! You think they'd have plenty of sno cone stands in town since the weather is warm most of the year but I have never seen one. They had some in Tulsa, for crying out loud.

Face Mask

I finally went and bought a face mask so I could limit my sneezing when I dust the house. It's not fun to wear but it works and is better than sneezing literally 50 times, blowing my nose half that much and feeling miserable for the rest of the day.

Knitting Project - Hat

I finished another knitting project! The pattern was called "Awesome Toboggan (Worsted)" and I chose the option for the turn-up brim. I got the pattern from my friend Rebecca who took the class last summer (I had to miss that class because I was out of town). There weren't any stitches in the pattern that were new to me so it was a pretty simple project. I used circular needles for most of it and then double pointed needles to gradually close it off at the top. The yarn I used is 100% Baby Llama from Peru because it's so soft. It is hand wash or dry clean only.

Hat with brim turned up:

Alisa loves her new hat. She wore it much of the day (indoors, because it's hot outside). She can maybe wear it in the evenings in Colorado this summer, but other than that we will have to put it away for fall/winter. It fits her and there is plenty of room for her to grow in it. Hooray!
