How was your St. Patrick’s Day?

We didn’t exactly “celebrate” it, but we did eat pork loin and roasted vegetables at Sonya’s house last night.  Not exactly the traditional Irish meal of corned beef and cabbage, but delicious and shared with good friends.  Perfect.

My nieces celebrated by wearing green, enjoying Shamrock shakes and just being adorable.  Irish girlsSaturday night Michael and I babysat while Olivia and Ella’s mom and dad enjoyed a date night.  Ella pizza“Uncle Mike” always brings the best food, and Saturday night it was cute little personal pizzas from Papa Murphy’s that the girls got to make themselves.  What a brilliant idea.

We also had shamrock-themed cookies from “The Bake Shoppe”.  If you’ve never enjoyed treats from this place, you’ve got to put it on your list.  If you’re looking for Easter goodies they make amazing mini Easter Egg cakes.  Yum!


Friday was a full “Workout of the Week” day for me and Sonya and photojournalist Joel Girdner.  We started with some awesome interval training in Sonya’s living room with personal trainer Amy Drefke.  We ended the day with a Power Sculpt class with my friend Caryn Lee.  We’ll be highlighting both of these wonderful women and the workouts they provide in the coming weeks.  Remember – if you miss the “WOW” segment on Tuesday at five o’clock, you can always find what we’ve done on the Channel 13 website under the “Sports” tab.
