This is just going to be one huge cluster fudge of life-things. I feel my lack of socializing (minus small talk with folks at the dog park) has caused me to bottle up quite a few things-not in a bad way, but hot damn do I need to just chat to beings other than my dogs. And Tyler. Not that I don’t love chatting with him, but I’ve now got him choosing my weekly nail polish. I mean…really? Crazy times.

First off, I wanted to share a quick and sweaty AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) workout I threw together last night and busted through this morning. Consider it this week’s Monday Moves post! Best part is that no equipment is necessary! Ok, maybe a stopwatch.



Last night while Tyler was a football practice, I searched YouTube for a cardio workout to follow. I found a 40 minute Kickboxing video that was pretty decent- yet it cut off with three minutes remaining! So I made up the rest, fell to the floor, and did some abs.

On Sunday, we cleaned the house. By ‘house’ I mean the living room, dining room, hallways, bathrooms and master bedroom. Not even the kitchen or the basement or the guest bedrooms. We managed to go through 2 ENTIRE rolls of paper towels, and a whole dispenser of clorox wipes. I suppose I should mention that I managed to knock over one of the surround sound speakers (and broke it) and knocked over a BRAND NEW full container of laundry detergent…Costco size. So technically, I guess we did clean the basement floor.

We bought our wedding bands this weekend as well. It was easy to pick mine- since it was the matching band with my engagement ring. It took Tyler 5 minutes to pick his.. boys and their jewelry. 5 minutes to pick out something he will wear for the rest of his life?! Craziness.

My puppies are so spoiled. Not only do they take advantage of me and get up about 35209 times a night for pets and kisses and potty breaks and food, but they also get to relax on the leather couches, rather than their little beddies.





Mozz is usually the cheese of choice for pizzas, but guys, I made one this weekend with 1/2 mozz and 1/2 gouda and DANG. That’s all I have to say.



I’m entirely too excited to see this movie:

Don’t Drink and Internet. I can EASILY list a crap-ton of things I’ve internetted while drunk, and it’s pretty scary. However, the best drunk internet thing I did was to randomly book a trip to Calgary for the Stampede where I ended up meeting the man of my life. Bad internet decisions include:, liking random peoples facebook statuses, and well…i’ll stop there.

I need to make these. Ok, I don’t NEED to, but I want to. Only problem is that we hardly ever have bread laying around the house. The only time I ever buy it is for dinner sandwiches and I buy the super small loaves that leave only the ends (which the dogs get).

I want to make these too.

Does anyone watch Kitchen Nightmares? I catch it once in a while, but missed what is probably the most epic episode over. Check out these crazies!

I NEEEEEEED this necklace

Imagecrappy small pic, I know. But BaubleBar is my new favorite jewlery site and I can’t wait to start working so I can buy just about everything they have.

And that’s all for now. I sitting on the floor typing this up, and my feet/legs have officially fallen asleep. Time for a quick yoga session then off to the gym for some cardio!

  1. haha so I used to do Tae Bo kickboxing tapes in my dorm room in college…my roommate thought I was a nutzo! Also just to let you know I have been a good girl getting my strength training in 🙂 and I did this circuit which included burpees on Sunday before my run but my neighbor probably wants to kill me now because I was making so much noise in the apartment!!

    • hahaha i hear ya on the apartment noise. in boston, i used to do some home workouts either super early or super late and it was a really old, squeaky house…so everyone knew i was working out! good job getting all the strength in, yay!

  2. I always meant to ask you how you met your fiance and ended up in Calgary. That is such a cool story!

    The pizza looks delish. I’m going to have to get J to make some pizza soon.

    Whoa those maple muffins looks so good. We usually have bread in the freezer- not quite as good as fresh but a loaf of bread would go moldy before we could use it all up so this is the best solution for us.

    • yeah, I actually came out here with a friend of his from Ottawa and we stayed at his house! So I essentially slept over the day I met him, lol. But we didn’t start ‘talking’ or dating until after I left. Cue the expensive long distance relationship!

  3. Hahaha. I laughed on the part about how it took Tyler 5 minutes to pick his band. I can totally relate, I picked mine right away and my husband just couldn’t decide! 🙂 LOL!
    Your pizza looks so good! Mmmm!
    I watch Kitchen Nightmares! 🙂 I love Gordon Ramsey’s shows.

  4. I was once turned down after THREE interviews, one of which was the vice president. I think it’s the decision I would make under normal circumstances, but I had been a long time out of work.
    You are very fortunate in your Stampede experience. Several of my friends have ended up divorced over an incident, shall we say, at Stampede. The best story is the guy that stumbled out of a port-potty, with a cute girl who was still fixing her skirt, into the eyes of his wife and her friends, who were next in line, who had come to this particular party totally by accident. Yes, the bouncers got involved.

  5. I had a pizza with goats cheese while I was in Ireland and it was actually really good! I was surprised. Anytime you want to go for coffee, I am free 🙂 Well after this weekend because I won’t be running crazy distances anymore!
