No Internal Memory?

by Meghann on October 16, 2009

I learned a very important fact about my camera this afternoon.

Let’s say if by chance I accidentally leave my memory card plugged in my computer then head out the door. Well, my camera is then rendered useless. Apparently the Canon Powershot SD1200 has NO internal memory; which means no memory card, no pictures. Bummer.

I didn’t discover this little unknown fact until I was trying to photograph my afternoon snack. I debated purchasing a cheap memory card to fill the void, but instead settled with an awkward fuzzy shot from my camera phone and the intention to retrieve my card later.


In case you can’t tell from the photo my afternoon snack was the Endure Glo Bar.

This is my 4th (5th?) Glo Bar I’ve sampled thus far and I am happy to say each one seems to be getting better then the last. The Endure Glo Bar had great big chunks of dried cranberry and apricot that really stepped this particular bar up a notch. It also was extra sweet and gooey. Good thing I have a big sweet tooth that didn’t mind! πŸ˜‰

With no big plans to fill my time this afternoon or evening I headed to Seminole Town Center to check out the new H&M.


I was pretty surprised they picked Seminole Town Center as one of the premier Orlando locations for H&M. The mall is pretty tiny without much going on. In fact, I was anticipating large crowds due to the fact the store had just opened yesterday, but in truth the store wasn’t crowded at all.


I had fun trying on random dresses and sweaters, but its really hard to get into the winter clothes shopping spirit when it’s still so hot out.

Sadly, I left empty handed, but I promise I’ll be back!

Dinner this evening started out with good intentions, but ended up being kind of bland.


Steamed Yuca with Onion and Broccoli topped with Black Beans and Goat Cheese.


This sounded good in my head, but was missing something. Maybe salsa? Or maybe I should have ate it separately instead of layered on a bowl? Oh well. It was edible and I ate it. πŸ™‚

To make up for my lackluster dinner I made sure I had an unforgettable dessert.


Pumpkin Pie Gelati from Jeremiahs (full review of Jeremiahs here )


OMG! Words could not describe how good this was. Pumpkin and vanilla ice cream? How could this be bad? Yum!

Maddie was even treat with a small puppy vanilla ice cream.


She gave her dessert two paws up.


The best part? Maddie was so distracted eating her treat, that I was able to enjoy my gelati in utter peace. There was no pulling on the leash or attempts to jump in my lap. It was amazing.

Now I am back home, in my pjs and ready to sit back with a good book and a hot cup of tea. I have a run planned in the morning then spending the rest of the day with my Mommy. Relaxation i the theme for this weekend and I plan to stick to it!

Good night all my lovelies!

Oh! I almost forgot! I was quoted in the November issue of Self!!! Woo hoo!! You can check out the article online here or in the actual magazine when it hits you mailbox or local magazine racks.

Big congrats to Tanya, Gina, Jenna and Angela who were featured as well! And even more thanks to Erin for taking the time to interview us all and put the article together. πŸ™‚

Pumpkin gelato!! Congrats on your brush with fame. That’s really cool. Did they just contact you for that, or did they put out a request for submissions?

3 Nicci@NiftyEats October 16, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Hello! I just happened upon your blog, however I am loving it!!! I am also from Florida and I agree it is difficult to shop for Fall clothing. However, you look great in that red dress.

8 greensandjeans October 16, 2009 at 10:21 pm

Pumpkin gelatto puts my slow churned pumpkin pie ice cream to shame! Also, I completely ditto everyone else on that red dress being smokin hot on you!

9 Jessica October 16, 2009 at 10:25 pm

Pumkin and ice cream looks amazing!

15 chasingthenow October 16, 2009 at 11:21 pm

That’s awesome that you were featured in SELF. I think I would feel like I have “arrived” if SELF featured me. Haha. Big dreams, right?

16 J @ Whole Body Love October 16, 2009 at 11:34 pm

I love the tips from each of you! I don’t love that you were referred to as “diet bloggers” . I don’t think the word “diet” does you any justice. You are so much more than that! I would call you health and wellness bloggers or something along those lines. But, congrats on the recognition!

17 lisa October 16, 2009 at 11:39 pm

You look so great in that red dress!!

Congrats on the article!

20 Emily October 17, 2009 at 12:05 am

I’ll have to check out the magazine – congrats!
I love the race photos. I was looking on line at my first triathlon race pictures – I look miserable or happy/ridiculous in all of them…
Also – I have to try those muffins from this morning. Mmmmm.

21 trustingmyintuition October 17, 2009 at 1:08 am

+1 on buying the red dress! You look great in it!
Congrats on being featured in Self, and enjoy that run in the morning!!

22 Julie @savvyeats October 17, 2009 at 1:37 am

I also vote for you getting the red dress!!

23 Simply Fabulous October 17, 2009 at 1:57 am

I rarely comment due to being so uber busy, though I read your blog daily. However, I feel compelled to say that the red dress is SO sassy and you must get it. And pull your hair back when your hair it. Seriously!

24 broccolihut October 17, 2009 at 2:14 am

Yeah, I learned that little fact about the Canon SD1200 the hard way…Boo.
Pumpkin and broccoli all in the same post–love it!

Congrats on being in Self!

You need to get that red dress!!!

32 Clay October 17, 2009 at 8:48 am

I like my yuca roasted and seasoned with a little braggs as opposed to steaming. Either was I think Yuca cannot function without some braggs, or lime juice (YUM). Also… maybe some Mrs. Dash chipotle spice. I dont think there isnt something i put this on… its like my crack, what can I say.

Great… now im gonna have to go out and buy some yuca.

33 Sarah (from See Sarah Eat) October 17, 2009 at 8:53 am

I left my camera at home yesterday so I was stuck with cell phone pics too!

That red dress is HOOOOOOT. You should go back and get it πŸ™‚

At first I thought the yuca was banana, haha, I need some more coffee. Have fun today!

34 Jenna October 17, 2009 at 8:59 am

37 Peanut Butter Bliss October 17, 2009 at 9:47 am

38 Allison October 17, 2009 at 10:38 am

Pumpkin Gelatooo gimme gimme! LOVE that red dress on you!! H&M is tough.. when I went there a week ago all I wanted to do was still try on dresses too! And it’s already 40 degrees and below here .. ugh. πŸ™ But they have some realyyy cute sweaters & even shoes once it gets cooler out near you!

39 Allison (Venus and Mars Bars) October 17, 2009 at 12:43 pm

You MUST go back and buy the red dress! You are a saucy little number in that, and who doesn’t want to be saucy?

Congrats on the Self article!

40 Stacey October 17, 2009 at 1:24 pm

I hate when I leave my memory card in the comp!! It sucks. And OMG, go back and get that red dress girl! You were totally rockin it! πŸ™‚ And I’m spending the day with my mommie too! I’m so excited, I haven’t seen her in 3 months!!!
Enjoy your Saturday πŸ™‚

41 shiningeyes October 17, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Have to agree about the red dress – you look so great!!! I’m from Florida (but lived for a while in Boston & DC) and as happy as I am that H&M finally made down to FL… I have to admit that they don’t make as much sense down here as they do up there. Florida style is much more casual and beachy.

42 Kat October 17, 2009 at 4:11 pm

I think you look cute in both dresses!

43 Nancy October 17, 2009 at 6:27 pm

You look so pretty!!! get the red!!

44 Madelin October 18, 2009 at 7:26 am

Totally agree the dresses look great! It looks like you have lost some weight recently? Yummy dessert – Maddie is so cute with her little doggie icecream πŸ™‚

45 gretchen October 18, 2009 at 7:40 am

girl, that red dress HAS to happen! +1 to all related comments above πŸ™‚

46 Rachel October 18, 2009 at 7:04 pm

I think with most Canons you can connect it to your computer with a mini-USB cord and then you’ll never have to remove your memory card, ever – no chance to forget!

47 Whit October 19, 2009 at 1:28 pm

You need to go back and get that red dress! HAWT!
