*The other day I discovered something that Chris loves, Lavash Bread.  It's AWESOME!  They are huge rectangular wraps.  The great part is that they are full of protein, flaxseed, fiber...and only 100 calories per huge wrap!!  Lately I've filled Chris' lunch wrap with chicken, BBQ sauce, sweet corn, green onion, and cheese.

*I'm realizing finding a Boxer dog might be harder than I thought.  I've inquired about several Craig's List postings and have yet to have any success. We'll keep trying!

*When I was young we had a Slip 'N Slide.  When the neighbors came over to join, I would charge them 10 cents but then give them back their dime at the end if they helped me clean it up. :)

*I love the show "Hungry Girl".  There are tons of cooking shows that claim to be all about healthy recipes.  And while they are, I never end up learning much new from them.  Hungry Girl has the best, most unusual tips for eating healthy in each episode.  

*Last night I made some meatballs but decided to cook them completely in the skillet so I didn't heat up the house with the oven.  They were sooo yummy and Cameron devoured them.  The sauce I used was simply ketchup, brown sugar, and Worcestershire.

Not sure what exactly you are looking for in a Boxer, but a friend of mine works with West Coast Boxer Rescue.

I know that same lady who works for the rescue :-)

I love lavash bread!

For some reason I never think about making meatballs.

I've never seen that cooking show, what channel is it on?

So fun when you discover something new like that! Kelly - give us some of the best tips from that show every once in awhile. That slip n slide thing is THE BEST EVER!!!!!!

Thanks Patty and Jessica. I also know a friend who works with them...but they are still about $300 to adopt, which is more than we want to spend. :)

Have you advertised that you want a boxer with your specifications--like how old, "free" :)--and said that you're a family who will treat a dog with love? Let me know if you want me to put the word out to my email friends.

Oh, yes, you were quite the little business woman with that Slip n Slide. You got so tired of being left with the clean-up, you started charging the neighbor kids that "deposit"--to be refunded only if they helped you clean it up.
