HAPPY DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS!! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your family and friends and puppies and ponies and whatever or whoever else you spent your holiday with :) I most definitely had a non-traditional Christmas in my eyes. Typically,I spend the morning sipping coffee then sweating in my garage on my dreadmill, followed by breakfast and present with the hubs. This year was quite different though, and I must admit, it was a pleasant surprise! 1. Does any one else get super depressed after Christmas? I must admit…I do. The whole taking down the ...

T-Minus two days and counting…. Who’s excited? I am!! I am also so completely ready for the holiday madness to die down. I literally cannot leave my house right now. The mass amount of people everywhere gives me an anxiety attack, I’m not even kidding. Holidays in LA don’t really equal relaxation….at all…. As I mentioned in my last post, I spent the better part of my Saturday (ok, almost all of it) in the kitchen prepping my foodie gift baskets for my friends at church. I always get a tiny bit nervous when I’m baking for other people, but I’ve gotten nothing but rave ... Continue Reading...

Christmas Survey

LAST DAY OF WORK!! Can I get a Hallelujah?! I may or may not have celebrated that fact this morning by having about 80 cups of coffee. Alright, I exaggerate slightly, but I had two at home and then my boss (aka father in law) brought me Starbucks at work, so I’ve been caffeinated for most of the day! Not a bad way to get through my last day of work in 2013. Wow…that’s weird to say… Got this little gem from Amanda. Clearly, I’m her stalker seeing as how I steal every survey she does, but she’s got such good taste, it really isn’t my fault! Before Christmas… Do you ... Continue Reading...

Man I was so not a happy camper when my alarm went off this morning, but it’s Monday whether I like it or not, so I better just roll with it right?! We had a party every night this weekend, so I guess my body is a bit exhausted from all the foods and excitement! I’m really looking forward to a relaxing day of work. NOT. Weekends Best BreakfastWhole wheat toast with PB + Amanda’s homemade applesauce  Warm melty peanut butter along with some warm cinnamon applesauce? Yep, I’m addicted. I literally ate 2 big mugs of this applesauce warmed up each morning. Who needs ... Continue Reading...

Chocolate Fudge Cookies

I had every intention of posting yesterday, but the tragedy that struck Connecticut left me so heartbroken, that I really had no words left to share with you guys. I will never understand why people take their anger and hatred out on innocent children, but we live in a sinful world and unfortunately things like this are going to happen. All we can do is prepare and try our hardest to prevent it. With that being said, please remember the families. There are 20 families who now are going to be without their children on Christmas, and that simply breaks my heart. ... Continue Reading...
