Double Post!! Swap it out and Sunday Fundayish

So yesterday brought some unfortunate events for me and when I got home I forgot to post my Swap it out Sunday.  So first thing is first…



This is an easy swap if you drink coffee every morning.  Swapping out reduced fat milk for creamer can mean huge savings over a year.  I have recently taken the swap one step further by swapping my milk for almond milk.  I can’t get away from this stuff, I even got chocolate almond milk frozen yogurt last night at TCBY!  These swaps can save you anywhere form 20-50 calories a day depending on how much you use which adds up to 140-350 calories a week!!  How easy is that!


I was so excited to go stand up paddling yesterday with Casey, our new roommate, his brother and a few other people they knew.  I had been begging Casey to do this with me for a while and I was so stoked we were actually going.

We were having such a great time, we paddled down the creek and once we hit the open water wandered around a bit before hooking to the boat and hanging out for a bit.

I had kept my phone in my bathing suit top the whole time we were paddling, snapping pictures along the way and decided to put it on the boat while we were just sitting and hanging out so I could do some swimming.  Before I knew it, one of the straps hooking the boards to the boat swung around and my phone went PLOP right in the water.  The worst part, I have a lifeproof case so it is still working sitting in the bottom of Shem Creek with nothing I can do about it.  WOMP WOMP!!  Live and learn right.

We paddled back and I was a bit grumpy after that but I was trying not to let it ruin the trip.  When we made it home I went for a run which always has a way of making things better, right?

Today I went to the AT&T store where they told me I could pay $350 for a new phone or wait until February, again WOMP WOMP!  However, my mom has her old phone and they said they can activate it for me.  Thank goodness!!

So until then, I will try to convince myself that it is actually nice to be liberated from my phone and try to have the best attitude I can about it.  Such is life!!

Hope you had a slightly less eventful Sunday than I did!
