Miscellany Monday

{1} How much is that doggy in the window?

{2} I went to the dentist this morning and left with a small victory -- I only had 1 cavity. Yes. I called that a victory. I have the worst teeth in the world.

{3} This is old, but I just discovered it -- Jan. 2010 Southern Living ranked my neighborhood #9 best comeback community in the U.S. Pretty Awesome.
I love the east side!

{4} Last week I asked about fish oil, this week... calcium... someone told me that thin people who gray early are likely to have osteoporosis when then get older. Well, this thin 26-year-old has a head full of grays. Have you heard this? Is it a wives' tale? Do any of you eat those chocolate calcium chews?

{5} I love having Jessica in town! We played tourists yesterday with David and had a blast.

  7. What a cute puppy (and the striped sweater in the window is very cute too).
    I've never had a cavity...which I find odd 'cause everyone in my family has lots and lots of them (and they're supposed to be genetic).
    I think that people think that thin people are getting less calcium in their diet (like they eat less), and maybe that's why they think they will get osteoporosis?

  12. Yay for Nashville!
    I lived there for 4 years before moving to Chicago (originally from East TN). How fun to play tourist - I never get tired of that!

    P.S. Thanks for the birthday wishes!!

  14. I haven't heard of calcium chews and the connection between osteoporosis and grays, but then again you learn something new every day. Can't see why the extra calcium would hurt though! So neat that you live in Nashville. I've always wanted to visit! Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you'll come by again!

  19. Thanks for stopping by my blog! It sounds like you live in a great neighborhood! Makes me miss living in a city. I know smaller women are more prone to osteoporosis- I think because we're also smaller boned. Asian and Caucasian women are at highest risk, and genetics are involved too. I have all the risk factors but am terrible at taking vitamins... thanks for the reminder.

  20. Cute dog. Great pix. Just wanted to drop by and say hello on Miscellany Monday. Take care, PAtrice

  21. I eat those chocolate calcium chews twice a day. I buy the sugar free ones from Costco. I started about 9 months ago and my nails are definitely healthier and stronger, but I think my hair is shinier and healthier too??? Don't know if that is from the calcium chews or all the other vitamins I take now.

  22. A friend of mine has the exact same puppy!

  23. Cute blog! Glad you stopped by so I was able to find my way to yours :)

    Hmmm...my mom is super thin, grayed early and has terrible osteoporosis so maybe there's something to it. I'm 30 with tons of gray but I guess I'm happy to not be too thin if this is true!

  26. I love random Mondays! That dog is too cute.

    As for the calcium/osteo question... Thin, light-skinned women are at a higher risk for osteoporosis b/c lighter skin absorbs less vitamin D. Calcium & vitamin D work together to help keep your bones strong. Smaller frames (petite women) will have less bone density just b/c they are smaller. Also, if any women in your family have osteoporosis, you are at a higher risk.
    I take Citrical daily b/c it has both calcium and vitamin D. Also, recent studies have shown that most of America isn't getting enough vitamin D as we are wearing sunscreen regularly, spending more time indoors, and not getting it from our diet.

    As for the gray hair, not sure about that... maybe a wive's tale?


    Sorry for the long comment. As an (almost) pharmacist, I felt like I should try and help ease the confusion!
