Insanity Recap

Whew, I’m getting behind on posting! Here’s an Insanity recap: Day 2 looked much like Day 1. I was less sore that morning, but again I waited until the 11th hour to do Insanity. Bleh. I definitely need to get going earlier! Day 3 was Cardio Power and Resistance - it seemed to go by much [...]

All In

I’ve never been much of an athlete. Sweating doesn’t rank high on my list of favorite things. PE was the most stressful class of the day. But it’s time for that to change. With 279 days until our wedding (nobody’s counting), J and I are determined to look our very best and start our lives [...]

Sometimes when I’m feeling particularly uninspired and not sure what to make for dinner, I stop by the cooking aisle at the grocery store and see what tasty combinations McCormick has available.

I am a sucker for Dunkin’ Donuts coffee (Strawberry Shortcake anyone?!), so when I saw this seasonal specialty, [...]

What’s a better end to a long day than milk and cookies? I personally can’t think of much of anything. That’s why these little guys make a regular appearance at our house. My friend Becky brought them over once, and J and I have been hooked ever since. The recipe is from the blogSkinnyTaste where delicious [...]

CHRISTMAS! A huge Pottery Barn box arrived today. Getting always mail always feels a bit like Christmas morning, and today was no execption. In fact, my latest loot from Pottery Barn had the holidays in mind. I’ll give you a sneak peek, but the final reveal will just have to wait until after Thanksgiving… Look at [...]
