So we celebrated my brother’s birthday this past Tuesday at our house. My parents were supposed to bring dinner and I decided to make him this Double Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake. I already had all the ingredients I needed in my fridge and pantry (well, except for the sour cream; I substituted vanilla yogurt for that) and it seemed relatively easy since all the ingredients get mixed in the food processor. I even had some leftover salted caramel sauce that I was planning on drizzling over the top of it.
All my life I had always avoided exercising and working out. Although I knew that the health benefits were great, I had neither the motivation nor the desire to do it. Organized sports? Ha, yeah right. The only running I might have done would probably have been because I was trying to catch up with the ice cream man.
I love to volunteer. Giving back is always a reward in itself. But this is pretty cool. This video was taken by my husband Marcus at the Kokua Hawaii Foundation volunteer appreciation picnic. Yes, the guy singing is Jack Johnson.
