10 Photos of Foods/Beverages I Don't Enjoy & Why

(none of these photos are mine. I Googled them.)

The idea for this post wasn't actually mine at all. It was my daughter Elena's. She suggested I take last weeks post and just flip it. 


Honestly, I'd like to think of myself as a person that is not picky, but alas I am. This post may not be too hard for me to complete. I'll let ya know if it was. 

1. 

So the first item would have to be tomatoes. At least, tomatoes that are uncooked. I can't stand the squishy & wet texture of a slice of tomato. I can totally dig them roasted, sauce and even thinly sliced and baked on a pizza or focaccia, but I can't handle the taste of a tomato when it is uncooked and fresh off the vine. It's just texturally wrong for me. *shudder*. Just giving a thought to the texture in my mouth gives me the heebie-jeebies.

2. 

Sweet Tea is one of those drinks you either love or hate. Personally I can't stand it. I managed to learn how to make a pretty good Sweet Tea while living in Georgia, but I cannot handle drinking it. It's just gross. I don't get drinking tea cold and sweetened with sugar. I've always associated tea as a comforting drink that I consume while sick with a cold. Sweetened with honey and a little bit of lemon  while I am wrapped in blankets. Cold Tea in a glass with ice on a sunny day? The idea of drinking tea isn't he most "thirst-quenching" thing for me. I know a lot of you Southerners are thinking I'm insane, but I just can't stand Sweet Tea.

3. 

Iceberg Lettuce. 
This stuff frustrates me. I mean, I will eat it on a burger, but I'd rather have arugula or even spinach. If you've never had these greens on a burger before, try it! You'll thank me. Anyway, iceberg lettuce is disappointing. It's just water and doesn't have much going for it. 

4. 

Cucumbers aren't my favorite for some of the same reasons as iceberg. It's just not very tasty to me. I can't get into them. 

5.


Cilantro 
Ugh.... This stuff is nasty. It tastes bad and smells worse. I cannot stand it. That is all.

6.

White Chocolate 
This stuff is gross. It's sugary and has no dimension in its flavor profile. It's too heavy and leaves a funky film in my mouth.

7.

Sparkling Cider
I will never be able to get into this stuff. I know it's a typical go-to for New Year, but. I don't enjoy it. Again, the sweetness factor is a bit much for me. I tend to toast in New Year with water or something else. If I am given a glass of it I have a small sip and just hand it over to my hubby.

8.

Chocolate with fruit flavoring.
Gross. I can't understand why chocolate should be infused with fruity notes. Icky. It's not for me. 

9.

Pickles have never been a friend. I just don't enjoy an overly briny experience on my palate. Add to that the fact that they are Cucumbers and I just can't deal. 

10.
Any hot peppers. Yup. I do not tolerate heat well. Nope. I'm a wimp. Nuff said. 

Well, that's todays post. Wasn't too hard to put together. 

What foods do you dislike?

Welp....See you next Saturday!!

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.
My main squeeze with a new little friend. The penguin looks like …

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…
