They say you can't change a man...


...but I beg to differ.  I've made a breakthrough.  
All my life my parents made us eat green vegetables, wheat bread, no soda, etc.  They were great examples of eating good, whole foods.  Some of this has rubbed off on me a bit.  I make an effort to eat lots of greens every day, good fruits, lots of water, and of course, always whole wheat bread.  I can't remember the last time I bought white bread.  I always prefer wheat to white.  
So Dave and I don't exactly share all of the same eating habits, which is OK.  I'm fine with that.  But I try to sneak good things in.  He knows I won't budge on a few things, including eating hot dogs, drinking soda late at night or early in the morning, and eating Ho-Hos (which my mom always seems to provide.  Shame on her!)  So we were at the grocery store one night, and Dave wanted hot dogs.  Despite my aversion to this questionable meat, I said whatever and let him get what he wanted.  Cue breakthrough.  He bought WHEAT buns to eat with the nasty hot dogs -- ahah!!!  He can be taught!  So, so proud.

Hey I got your comment on the hills and just had to tell you that I am definitely on team Lauren and I really don't like Spencer, he is kind of a dirt bag! Glad we're on the same page. :)

Kate enjoys her morning whole wheat English muffin. She must be a Waterfall baby.
