Friday Fun

Hey guys &Β Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a great day! I had the day off yesterday and today in order to gear up for the next 3 weeks of night shifts that I’ve got coming up on Sunday night and I have to say, it’s been a great…and much needed.

Before I show you guys what I’ve been up to, I just have to share my delicious little snack I had today:

1/2 cup Greek yogurt mixed with 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder + a crumbled Clif Peppermint Stick bar

The perfect snack to help me power through a workout and tide me over until dinner!


Oh, and speaking of workouts, I went to BodyPump for the first time in about a month yesterday and it was AWESOME…so awesome in fact that I woke up this morning unable to raise my arms! Haha!

I wanted to get in some kind of workout today, but I’m holding out for some sunshine for an outdoor run tomorrow morning (fingers crossed the weatherman is on my side) so I headed to the gym this afternoon for a little cardio mix!

30 minutes on the arc trainer and 30 minutes on the bike.

I was POOPED after the 8 miles on the bike…but I forgot all about that once I got home and made some lunch…

C’mon, how can you not smile at that?!

I promise this wasn’t on purpose…I plopped two fried eggs on top of a plate of spaghetti squash (this was actually my dinner last night…told you I was obsessed) and couldn’t help but notice the eyes and nose…

I named him Steve.

And then I ate him! Muhaha!

Before my evil little shenanigans (that word always makes me think of the movie Super Troopers), I did a little shopping and if you can believe it, I did NOT buy anything food-related…I know, total shocker!

I kid you not, I originally bought this jacket at Dick’s thinking I was getting a pretty good deal…$35 marked down from $50.

But then…

I spotted the SAME jacket at TJ Maxx for $25!

You better believe the first one went back to the store! πŸ˜‰

Other TJ Maxx goodies:

The ca-utest little Christmas mugs and a stylish newΒ purse lunchbox!

And then I found this coffee mug holder at a little kitchen store in the mall.

I LOVE the modern look to it…and we all know I have plenty of mugs to fill it! πŸ˜‰

After that, it was off to the craft store:

All on sale for 30% off!

I’m tired of Jenn having all the fun!

This may not be Broccoli & Crayons, but dangit, this weekend, I’m getting to know my inner artist a little better! πŸ˜‰

I’ll keep ya posted!

Before I go, there’s one more thing…

It’s time to announce the winner of the Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter Giveaway!

May I have a drumroll, please! πŸ˜‰

Congratulations Beth! Email me with your address and your jar of Coconut Peanut Butter will be on it’s way! And by the way, we need to meet up soon, Miss Local Lady! πŸ˜‰

Got any big plans this weekend? Do tell!

Have you ever tried any DIY art projects of your own? What did you make?

  3. They don’t have any peppermint clif bars at my grocers! But they have every other kind πŸ™ bum!

    What are you making with your artistic skills? Look forward to seeing the finished product.

    And thanks for reminding me I have yogurt in my fridge that needs to be used. Thinking a smoothie in the morning…

    Cute…that was real cute with the egg plate. πŸ˜‰

  4. Haha! I am loving your lunch! πŸ™‚

  5. You know what’s super funny? I def had a dream that my mom bought me a giant box of holiday themed clif bars last night. And also I was looking at that picture and trying to make the clif bar into a peppermint stick luna bar (which is cocoa coloured). not happening. Looks like a tasty snack though. Love clif bars.
    Such a cute face!! I can’t believe you didn’t do that on purpose. and I’m totally jealous that you get to go to TJMaxx. They’ve got TKMaxx here which is sort of the same thing, only I don’t know whether it has the same bargains. By which I obviously mean the foodie and kitchen things πŸ™‚
    Can’t wait to see what you make with the mod podge!
