Will Do Taxes For FroYo

I spent a few hours doing our 2008 income tax returns today. But I told myself that I can go out for frozen yogurt after three hours of taxes. Remember that me = lab rat? Food incentives work for me? We had salads for lunch, with leftover steak from last night: Around 5:00 PM we headed to Yogurt World. I don't know if the rest of you have these frozen yogurt stores where you live, but they're huge in California. And in order to be authentic, they have to have the Asian tart yogurts. This craze was started by Pinkberry and has spun off many knock-offs, including the cheaper and better (in my opinion) Yogurt World. Todd's: Mine: I added a tiny little bit of sweet taro (the purple stuff) to my original tart flavor. Look who likes froyo? (Look who didn't do taxes and still got froyo? :) Digi Dare #126 is up! This week we are scrapping our quirks! Come join us and get a chance to win $50 (not $40, but $50!) in gift cards to our April sponsors! You'll need to link up your layout in the comments section of this week's Dare at the Dare site by Thursday 4/2 @ 11:59 PM Eastern time. Here's my layout for the Dare: Full credits at the Dare site. On a serious note, I just got an email update from my friend Barbara's husband Mike. He said Barbara is in her last days/hours now and will be going home to the Lord very soon. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2007. She's 33 and they have three young children. She's our sister in Christ and we shared with each other for many years in the same Bible study group. I'm sad, even though I know she's going to be with the Lord in heaven, where there's no pain and suffering. I'm sad because it's yet another passing of someone in which I don't understand God's purpose and intent. Please pray for Barbara's family and they go through this transition.


  1. Great shots and a great layout. Love the Kermit shirt!

    I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I will keep her and her family in my prayers.

  2. My children and I will pray for your friend and her family, breast cancer has taken many of our loved ones, friends and family, and I don't understand either :(

    Someday I will join that challenge...I just have to get more motivated...

  3. Doing the tax isn´t funny!! You needed a brake and frozen yoghurt is great therefore.

    We love frozen yoghurt!

    The salad looks so yummy and make me hungry.

    I´ll pray for Barbara and her family

  4. I am so sorry about your friend Barbara. I hate breast cancer--it is horrible. I will definitely be praying for her and the family over the next couple of days--I know that it will be very difficult for them to watch. What comfort to know that she is going where there will be no more pain!

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend Barbara...she's so young and will leave behind so many. I love Yogurt World -- especially when I remember to take a Lactaid ahead of time.

  6. Sorry for your friend and her family. I wish them all the strength and love they need!

    Great pictures! The taxes-thing does looks heavy. Here we get a paper home, and then we log into a web-page to confirm that the paper had the correct figures. It has become so easy over the last couple of years with the Internet and all.

  7. Taxes..yuck.

    Yogurt..looks great!

    Your T-shirt..very cute!

    I'm so sorry to hear about Barbara. I will be praying for her and her family.

  8. Love that tax photo!! And your food looks YUMMY as usual!

    I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I will remember her and her family in my prayers as she finishes her battle and goes home to the Lord.

  9. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend - I'll keep her family in my thoughts.

    That yogurt looks totally delicious - yours looks like a better combo overall but I'd love to try "sweet taro".

  10. I love your layout for the dares...and YUM for the froyo!

    I'll definitely be keeping your friend in my prayers!

  11. This is hilarious! I just posted my Fro You day today!!!

    Taxes is how Rick spent the day yesterday, but he just had to get it all ready for the CPA. We need to call him tonight and set up an appointment.

    I am SO with you on the email vs the phone thing. I have family who don't check their emails but once a month, and I have to text message one of them and tell her to check her email. The other one doesn't have texting on her phone, but she'll check her email every few days, so it's not as bad.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Barbara. I will be praying for her husband and children.

  12. Oh yes, the tax return, which is probably all over the world, unloved!

    I'm so sorry to hear about Barbara. I will be praying for her husband and children. All the Love!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
