Tortilla Bun

by Meghann on February 15, 2012

Introducing my latest guilty pleasure (and I totally blame Rock n Roll for this).


Snickers Marathon is one of the major sponsors of the Rock ‘n’ Roll race series. I’ve only seen them at the expos or the finisher chutes of the races I’ve run with them. Their bars are full of sugar and have little nutritional value (besides the 13g of protein), but they taste exactly like a Snickers candy bar (I <3 Snickers!) and I find myself grabbing handfuls of them at the end of every race. I wouldn’t eat one everyday, but they’re a fun treat when I’m craving a Snickers. Like this afternoon. Yum.

Full of sugar or not, the bar did a great job at holding me over until dinner. (The 13g of protein was good for something after all ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) On the menu tonight? chicken sausage and veggies.


When I was in college my roommates and I forgot to purchase buns for our italian sausages and improvised with tortillas. The tortillas were the perfect substitute-buns and sort of stuck with us the rest of the school year. Even today I still enjoy a a tortilla wrapped chicken sausage. ๐Ÿ™‚


On the side I sauteed the last of our zucchini and yellow squash and heated up some frozen green beans.


Valentine’s Godiva chocolates for dessert.


Derek and I are going through the box of chocolates way too fast. Either that or there are too many raspberry/cherry filled ones and neither of us or touching them – darn.

Verizon Ambassador

I have a little announcement to make. ๐Ÿ™‚

Earlier this month I signed on to be a Verizon Ambassador. Basically all that means is Verizon sent me a new Droid Razr to test out and review over the next couple of months.


Which is perfect because I’m a Droid girl (whoop! whoop!) and am happy to talk up the Android system with anyone (including my Android hating/ iPhone loving fiance). Yes, we’re a split household. I’m thinking of having ‘we agree to disagree on who has the better cellphone’ written into our vows. It’s been the source of many heated arguments – don’t ask.


My first impression of the Droid Razr is how BIG it is – like a mini tablet. Some people aren’t fans of giant phones – but I LOVE them. My personal phone is an Evo and I’ve always been a fan of the bigger screen and find it hard to type when I use anyone else’s phone. To me, the large screen is perfect, especially for tweeting, Facebooking, and emailing.

Another thing was how thin it is.


Yes, the screen is nice and large, but it’s thin enough to slip in my back pocket and not create a crazy bulge. It’s the perfect slip-in-the-back-pocket size.

This phone and I are just getting started. If you have any questions about it, please let me know in the comments. Personally, I’m excited about the ability to turn this baby into a mobile hot spot.


Every blogger’s dream come true. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What about you? Droid or iPhone? Or another phone system?

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassadorsโ€™ Program and have been provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. All opinions are my own.

The Class of Shakes

February 15, 2012

Last month I took my first class at Barre Fitness Tampa and loved it. I loved it so much that I was somehow talked into one of the new student package deals. It sounded like a great deal at the time (3 classes for $30), but the location (a 20+ minute drive my house) mixed more ยป
