I’ve seriously been slacking on my Par’s Picks posts. I was travelling last week and just didn’t have time to compile a good list of sharable links. And Vishnu’s parents were visiting this weekend so there was no time to blog. I guess I suck at sharing a lot!
Anyways, we had a wonderful time – eating at a number of different restaurants, visiting a couple of malls, and seeing the sights of Miami via a boat tour. We all agreed that the weekend flew by. I would by lying if I said I wasn’t super tired. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I feel exhausted. Really, really, really hoping that I’m not getting sick!
A few pictures from the weekend…
Pretty sure the tour guide said this is George Clooney’s house!
On to Par’s Picks…
7 Things We Can Learn From Making Mistakes – #7 is one I work on often.
Letter to an 18-year-old on the Career Path Less Traveled – I wish someone…anyone…had said something like this to me back when I was 18.

The Power of a Daily Bout of Exercise – Just MOVE!
12 Weight Loss Resolutions You Shouldn’t Make – Like with any goals we set in life, weight loss related resolutions should be realistic and S.M.A.R.T.
What Is the Real Cost of Healthful Food? – So many factors to consider when looking at the costs of eating healthy, but I think we can all agree that the long term benefits outweigh…well, everything!
What We Learned About Weight Loss in 2013 – WOO HOO for #2!
Creamy Corn and Quinoa Chowder – I made this for dinner last week and really enjoyed it! A great alternative to regular chowder for those looking to cut back on calories.
Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins – I’m a huge fan of Lindsay’s Sweet Potato Banana Bites and can’t wait to try this recipe too.
Which “Friends” Character Are You? – So the first time I took this I got Mike (as in Phoebe’s husband). Vishnu was baffled by the result so he made me retake the quiz in front of him. Apparently, I misread one of the questions. I’m really Rachel. Huh? Word to the wise, while this quiz is fun, it does not make sense!!

Cute picture of your parents :). And those picture of Miami are gorgeous! About a month ago I was discussing being healthy with my boyfriend, and we were talking about the cost. We are convinced that they charge a lot for the food, and for gyms because they won’t be getting much money from us at the Hospital or Doctor’s office hahaha
this is so funny, I got Mike too. I will have to check out that chowder. I am so glad you had a wonderful time with the parents-in laws 🙂
I love the view of the Miama skyline! We’ve done a couple of boat tours (generally also when family visits) and I love how it’s such a new view of the same city you see every day! Hope you guys have some relaxing days coming up 🙂
Your parents are so cute. Loving George Clooney’s house… wow! I took your friends quiz, i’m Rachel too. 🙂
So glad you are njoying some quality time – don’t worry we will be here when you are back 🙂
