Bringin’ Back An Old Favorite

by Courtney on July 26, 2010


By the time 12:00 rolled around, I was more than ready for some lunch. I did have a small snack of Manna Bread mid-morning, but it didn’t tide my appetite over very long. I guess that’s what 1-1/2 hours of mowing the lawn will do to ya! (That’s right Jay, it’s ALL DONE!) Whew, what […]


Why I’m a Happy Camper

by Courtney on July 26, 2010


Happy Monday! I’m quite a happy camper this morning, for a few reasons… 1.) My Workout I started my morning off with a nice, refreshing workout of some run/walk intervals. I was totally in the mood to workout, but just didn’t feel like pushing myself too hard. You know what I mean? Hey, a workout […]


Grilled Potato Salad with Parsley Pesto

by Courtney on July 25, 2010


Grilled Potato Salad with Parsley Pesto (see recipe below!) Nothin’ beats a relaxing Sunday. Jay and I were able to take care of a few things around the house, and I was finally able to finish my book, The End of Overeating. Considering I started reading it almost 3 months ago, it was about time! […]


Little Did He Know…

by Courtney on July 25, 2010


Last night on our way home from Date Night, Jay and I got to talking a little bit about running. Our friend Joey is going to be running in a 5K race on Labor Day weekend, and asked us both if we’d want to join. Well, I immediately said “SURE!” but the hubby was quick […]


I Think I’m In Love, With…

by Courtney on July 24, 2010


As you know, Date Nights are one of my favorite things in the whole entire world. But impromptu Date Nights – well I think they just may be 1000 times better! As I mentioned earlier today, I was having high hopes for a potential fro-yo outing at a new place in Saratoga that I’ve been […]


Fresh Is Best

by Courtney on July 24, 2010


I love it when a Saturday rolls around when I don’t have a commitment to run to. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes those commitments can be super fun, such as last weekend’s Blogger Brunch. But for those mornings when I’m free, nothing beats a trip to the Farmers Market. Before leaving the house, I snacked […]


Fashion Friday: A New Diet Craze?

by Courtney on July 23, 2010


IT’S FASHION FRIDAY!!! I have a pretty interesting topic up ahead, so let’s whiz through the afternoon eats quickly. As planned, I enjoyed some Carrot Raisin Manna Bread mid-morning, spread with some PB2. I started off with one piece…but I may have possibly gone back for another.   I had a couple of questions on […]


Success All Around!

by Courtney on July 23, 2010


It’s official: my Chocolate PB Cup Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting were a success! Mom & Dad liked them… Kate & Justin liked them… Zenia & Meg were lovin’ ‘em… And Derrick & Jim…well…I guess you could say they were really enjoying them. It’s a good thing I saved a few of these puppies at […]



Chocolate + Peanut Butter  The rich, silky, sweetness of chocolate combined with the smooth, creamy, subtly sweet & nutty peanut butter: well, it’s simply, a match made in heaven. Try to tell me any other combination that is more delicious and I’ll call you crazy (unless, that is, you say chocolate + caramel – then […]


Target Ain’t Got Nothin’ On Me

by Courtney on July 22, 2010


Today is a date that must me marked on the calendar: I walked out the doors of Target today and only spent $21.00! YES, isn’t that wild?!? Who would have thought such a thing would be possible! I conquered the demon. mwaahahaha Considering I am still only human, I did wind up grabbing a couple […]
