Dancin' A Jig

by Courtney on June 7, 2010

Good Morning!  How are you all doing on this lovely Monday?…(wait, lovely + Monday usually don’t belong in the same sentence) ;)

Well, if you remember from last night, Jay and I planned a relaxing movie night on the couch.  After about 20 “I don’t care, you pick”‘s back and forth (typical), I finally made the decision to go with 500 Days of Summer.  Super cute movie!!  I was in the mood for something a little more light and comical, and this was a perfect choice!  We both really enjoyed it.

Not only did I enjoy my movie, but I also enjoyed this little dish :-P

Friendly’s slow churned vanilla with a drizzle of sugar-free caramel & about 2/3 of my pretzel M&M’s.  It was HEAVEN!  And the pretzel M&M’s……that’s all I will say ;)

Cody also had fun watching the movie from his “new bed”.

“Peek-a-Boo!  I see you Mom!”

This morning, I set my alarm nice and early to start the day of with a good workout.  I did my 45 minute treadmill interval run, which kicked my butt wonderfully…if there is such a thing. ;)

After showering and getting ready, my rumbly tummy was telling me it was time to be fed!  So let me just warn you quickly: today’s breakfast was so good, I think it almost had me dancing a jig in the kitchen…

Overnight Oats in a Jar!!!

Last night before heading to bed, I added 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup light vanilla soy milk, golden raisins, & cinnamon to the last of my Plain Jane Chunky PB jar.  And this morning, literally all I had to do was open the fridge, give it a stir, and it was ALL SET! 

Mornings + Easy, Mindless Breakfast = Happy Courtney :-D

Just for a little extra “oomph”, I decided to add 1/2 of a mashed ripe banana to the mix this morning.  It was fantabulous…like I said, dancing a jig kinda good. ;)

Even better, hubby said I couldn’t get a new jar of PB until I finished off one of the four jars already open in our pantry right now…looks like Courtney’s getting some more Blizzard Butter on Saturday! :mrgreen:

Oh, I almost forgot!  You may or may not remember a few weeks back when I was trying to decide on which perfume to get from my Sephora Fragrance Sampler?  Well, over the weekend, I finally made a decision…

Viva La Juicy!

I’m REALLY happy with my decision!  The scents of wild berries, Jasmine, and Vanilla are very dominant and perfect for me! Jay approves too. ;)

Question for the morning:

What’s your “signature scent”?  Do you change fragrances with the seasons?

I’ve always liked to have some variety with my fragrances!  Some of my favorites are:

-Lucky You by Lucky You Brand

-Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana

-Stella by Stella McCartney

-Fancy Love by Jessica Simpson

-Burberry Brit by Burberry

-Sensual Amber from Bath & Body Works (one of my winter faves!)

i’ve been wanting to try those pretzel m&ms! glad they are as tasty as they sound.


3 Amy @ Second City Randomness June 7, 2010 at 9:42 am

I just got a craving for ice cream. And it’s not even 9:00 in the morning yet… no good! :p

My favorite scent is “Blue” by Ralph Lauren. I’ve switched it up before, but always go back to it…

I need to try a different scent of perfume. Right now, I’m loving Bat Body Works Vanilla body spray, and perfume. Though I’ve notcied the spray is really just a watered down version of the actual frangrance.

I LOVE pretzel M&Ms too!! And the peanut butter ones are quite delicious too :)
Cody is a doll- his cute little sneaky self!
I have YET to make Overnight Oats in a jar…partly because I buy the monsterous peanut butter jars from BJs & it would be kind of hard to eat out of those- lol! I could have overnight oats in a jar for a WEEK if I made it in that container- lol!!
I brought a piece of your bread with me to work today!! Can’t wait to have it for my afternoon snack. Awesome recipe!


6 Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life June 7, 2010 at 11:24 am

Oh my gosh, that would be one heck of an overnight OIAJ!! :-O
So glad you like the bread!!

Glad you like the M & M’s! I thought they were SO tasty!

I’m actually not on a perfume kick right now. Everything I put on seems so overpowering so Ive just been rockin my natural scent lately.

OMG I have so many scents that I love. I switch them up all the time

– Marc Jacobs Daisy (I’m starting to get sick of this though…)
– Vera Wang Princess (this for some reason reminds me of my Ex, since I started wearing it while we were together, so I don’t really use it anymore haha
– Abercrombie 8 (started wearing this when I was 18 and still like it!)
– I love all of the Juicy Couture fragrances, but don’t own any YET. It will be my next purchase!
– Burberry Brit Sheer
– Cherry Blossom by Bath and Body Works (reminds me of when I lived in D.C. for college)


9 Kelly June 7, 2010 at 12:31 pm

I have been wanting to try that perfume so badly! As soon as I finish my current bottle (It is a Vera Wang scent) I am going to try this one!


10 cardiopizza June 7, 2010 at 2:32 pm

I don’t wear scents often…the only one I have currently is Clinique Happy which i’ll use when going out :)


11 amy June 7, 2010 at 4:18 pm

I love anything vanilla or very clean scents, nothing overpowering!

I liked Burberry, THE BEAT and my bf bought it for me. One day I had one drop left of THE ONE and I put that on and he said, OMG that reminds me of you. I said, “it IS me, silly.” We both agreed that I’m going back to DG when this bottle of Burberry is done.

Perfume, how I love thee. My fav is Juicy (by Juicy Couture).
