Starting Easter weekend

I have some serious catching up to do. Especially with food pictures. Because I eat a lot of food. A lot.

Last nights dinner was quick as painless.

Chicken strips with broccoli and quinoa. For the chicken, I cut the breasts into strips, dipped them in egg, coated in cornmeal and baked at 350 for 15 minutes. Yum.

It was obviously a great meal, because Layla wanted every bite.


Then, Tyler and I sampled quite a few of those cookies I mentioned yesterday. They were all-too tasty. And I love them.

Mmm, chocolate never goes wrong in my eyes


We watched the third Harry Potter movie and were off to bed. I finally finished Fifty Shades of Grey and have moved on to Loce the One You’re With by Emily Giffin

Thank goodness for Facebook, I got some great suggestions on what to read next!

Oh, and I finally changed my dang nail polish

Easter festive!

Speaking of Easter, I gave Tyler his basket early. 1) because I suck at holding on to presents because I love giving them, and 2) because some of the candy in that basket was for me and I wanted it!


This morning’s breakfast was nice and hearty because we were going for a hike with joe, Twyla, and all the doggies. I had oats mixed with 1/2 mashed banana, raisins, cinnamon, honey, almond milk and almond butter.


We drove to the mountains for our hike and I was able to get some b-e-a-utiful pics.


And my water dog..






Tyler had put some chicken in the crockpot before leaving, so dinner was practically made when we got home (and finished painting the living room!!!!!!! Yay, no more painting for a LONG while!!!! Jen is happyyyyy!)

On to Harry Potter movie nĂșmero cuatro, some brewskis, and of course…. Easter candy 😉

Thursday Sharefest

Lots of random things to share with you tonight:

First off. Read this article and then give it a round of applause (or if you are in a public place, mentally golf clap). Honest to God, first thing I did was to go online and check for any wine specials at our local liquor store.

Second, this article gives sound advice at what not to do while working out (Spoiler alert: Donuts and free hugs are mentioned). Sadly, his last pointer is probably something I should do. Regardless if I am working out or not.

Third, I just made these cookies. And ohmygawd are they good. And I feel slightly less guilty for eating them because there is no flour. Did you hear that, mom? No flour. Click on the link for the recipe. If you can’t figure it out, call me and I’ll show you. Honestly, they’re super good. Bring a batch over to Sheila’s. I expect a thank you card in the next 7-10 business days. (I made mine with almond butter, because Costco sells that shizz for 6 bucks a pop. Hells yes)

If you eat too many of those delicious cookies, try this workout. I did it when I was home for Christmas, and I loved it. She explains each move on her site if you have any questions. These are my results from when I did it in December

Hmmm, now that I’ve dug this up, I think I’m going to have to do it again tomorrow to compare results! (This altitude change/baking-a-lot situation might have hindered my ‘scores’. I’ll let you know tomorrow.)


To Sum Up: Don’t be at the gym while you drink wine and eat flourless cookies. And squat a few times after.
