1. My square foot garden is going gangbusters! I've had tons of salads and a few cherry tomatoes. Soon, I should have a ton of tomatoes ... all from a raised garden bed that's only 4x10 feet.
2. After reading about Monica's weigh-loss challenge on Run Eat Repeat, I decided to host my own DietBet challenge. You can join the game now and starting Aug. 1, the challenge will be to lose 4 percent of your body weight in four weeks. If you do, you'll win the pot or split it with anyone else who reaches the goal. The buy-in is $20 and if 20 people participate, I'll add a Bonus Stake ... it'll be a good one, too.
3. Tim and I have an exciting date tonight. We're attending a VIP sneak preview of The Dark Night Rising in a few short hours. I've seen all these movies, but I'm not nearly as excited about this as my sisters are. Mandy told me today I am not worthy because I don't appreciate how tough these tickets are to score. This will be my first movie since we took Napoleon to the drive in.
