{G}adgets: #AtoZChallenge 2016

I have a confession to make.  I am a gadget junky!  Not a luv’er of  all gadgets tho’.  If it’s electronic,  book-related or kitchen related, I go ‘ coo coo for CoCo Puffs’ over it!  *you do remember this tag line for the cereal,  don’t you? * 

The gadgets that get my attention had to meet only two criteria.  It must:

☆ be cute but functional

☆ and have the ‘ahhhhhhhhhhh!’ factor!

That’s it!  If it has those two things,  it has me at the letter ‘G’!

So I confessed about my luv for spices.  Gadgets are easily a close second in the area of vices!  And,  for the purpose of this post,  kitchen gadgets fit the bill nicely *flashing a big cheesy grin*

Here’s just a few of these little Luv-lies:

Friday Food Porn … Your Beer has A Loft

Heyyyyy!!!!  It’s Friiiiiiiday!!!!!  Luv-lies,

Got through yet another Rain/Sleet/Snow storm.     How’d you do?

The day before the storm, I joined my neighbors and stocked up on the non-necessities.  The necessities?  Got those before the last storm.  So that just leaves stopping to get, what I call, ‘the goodie’.

I bought some popcorn, quac dip, chips and a few other ‘comfort bites’.  Of the low/no fat kind.  Of course.  Picked up, what turned out to be, too many over-sized bottles of O.J. and half-half iced tea.

It took me some time to rearrange the stuff in the fridge – so that the oversized bottles would fit.  Can you say … ‘work out’!

Now.

If I had one of these little babies,  I might not have bruised all of my delicious fruit.

 

bottleLoft-1-570x400

The peeps over at  Strong Like Bull Magnets call this the ‘bottleloft’.

Taking advantage of the under used ‘head room’ in the fridge, frees up shelve space for those left-overs.

And.

You can hang more than beer….

bottleLoft-2-570x400 or your favorite iced coffee

bottleLoft-3

If it has a metal lid, you can hang it.

How’s all this magic work?

There’s a super-duper-extra-magnificent-ginormous magnet that makes it all work!

Do you need more space in your fridge?

It’s been the {Very Special} Birthday of  #TheBestDaughterInTheWorld!…. Mine!!!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY

Yeaaaaahhh!!!!!

*Throwing Confetti in The Air.  And doing my Happy Dance!!!*

So.  In addition to celebrating, I spent the later part of my weekend relaxing and surfing the ‘net.

One thing I love about surfing is finding something uniquely crazy.

This gadget fits the bill.  Nicely.

Perfect for today’s {Man Day} Monday feature

If you look closely,  you’ll notice that these two are actually walking!  That’s right! You do not see them pedaling!

This clever little ditty is the mastermind of Holland native- Bruin Bergmeester.

You see, it seems that he spends a good deal of his day sitting.  And when he’s not, he’s home on the treadmill.  As the story goes,

“One day it was lovely outside and Bruin did not fancy spending time on a bicycle, which meant sitting again, so he thought to himself: “Why not bring the treadmill outdoors?”

And this is what he came up with… he calls if the Lopifit.

He describes it as ‘not an electric bike, it’s not a scooter, it’s not a treadmill’

So what is it!  Why it’s all three.  Of Course.

Okay.  Now you know you want to be the first one of your friends have one.  Admit it.

This is too clever for me.  Sign me up.  I want one!

The only question is  ‘Where can I order one of these?’.

Spoiler Alert!

… it’s only a prototype … *bummer*   *big bummer*

I’ll keep my eye on this one.  When it comes to market, you’ll be the first ones to know!

What unique craziness is going on in your life?

Blog Trolling Thursday ….

Hey Luv-lies

Happy Thursday!

It’s triple dare cold outside!  And the good thing for me is that I don’t have to go trekking around in weather fit only for a penguin.

  What it does let me do is spend some time blog trolling.

I {heart} blog trolling and I’d like to take you along.   I’ve grabbed one of my biggest cups of coffee.

Because who doesn’t start their day with a mega size cup of   ‘jo’?  Go ahead.

Go get yours.  I’ll wait……

Back?  Okay.

Put your feet up and take a stroll with me…..

activelinkandjawboneupHappy Sunday Luv-lies,

Had an okay weigh-in….1 pound up {not an woo-hoo!} – but I plan to have a better week. I’ll keep you posted….

Immediately after my morning weigh-in, my routine is to do a cardio class – two doors down! This morning was no exception. :-). Zumba seems to get me going these days, so off to an hour class. It was very energizing.

Then it’s on to a return to my WW Meeting (where I’ve saved time by weighing in before my cardio class. Our meeting focused on moving your body as a strategy for ’emotional eating’ (but I plan to post later on today about that…and another issue that came up at today’s meeting).

I am proud to say that I am an ActiveLink fanatic! My other ‘move my body’ gadget is my Jawbone UP. Both of these little trinkets inconspicuously collect data about how much I move my body and reward me with feedback that helps to keep me motivated in getting in cardio, daily sleep requirements, meals/meal planning and much, much more.

Hey Luv-lies,
What’s your ‘move your body’ gadget?

Do share…..
