Happy St. Patty's Day!

Today, I'll be putting this:

and this:

inside this:
along with potatoes & carrots & letting it simmer all day long while I'm out of the house so I don't have to smell it!!! Every year on St. Patty's Day, Jim has to have his Corned Beef & Cabbage & every year, I have to leave the house while it's cooking because I just cannot stand the smell of it! I don't eat it, either. YUCK!

So while it's cooking, I'll be out doing some shopping. I'm going back to the place where I purchased the Elliptical at to check out a treadmill that they have on sale now. It's the same price as the Elliptical, too so that's a plus. Jim & I went to check out Great Lakes Athletic Club on Friday & while we really do like it, we just can't afford it right now :( But one day, hopefully soon, we'll be able to join it. In the meantime, though, I want a treadmill & I want a treadmill BAD! I know a treadmill is something that I'll use as I really loved my old one (until it stopped working, that is). And now that the weather is finally starting to get nicer, Jim & I have started taking walks again as well. 4 more days until Spring arrives.....WOOO-HOOO!!! Can you tell I'm just a little bit excited for Spring to get here? :)

That's all for now.....hope you have a wonderful St. Patty's Day!

Wow! what a great crockpot. I'm with you on that whole cornbeef and cabbage thing. I can't stand the smell and won't eat it. I just don't like it. It almost smells like stinky feet.

Good luck getting the treadmill. I'm not a fan of the ellipical either.

Have a great St. Patty's Day

We had our Corned Beef on Saturday and without the cabbage. I am not a cabbage fan! We had potatoes!

I should have gotten some. My mind was in other places I guess!
I didn't even know they made a Nascar crock pot. Too funny!
