by Courtney on August 31, 2010


Today was full of delicious eats, especially the dinner you see in that title above…BUT, since I’m a little behind on posting today, let’s get all caught up, shall we? Breakfast Simple, yet always satisfying: A combo cereal bowl with Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Kashi Go Lean, & Kashi Go Lean Crunch. All topped off with […]


Gettin’ My Veggies Back

by Courtney on August 30, 2010


I think it’s safe to say that throughout my entire week in Vegas last week, I probably consumed less than 4 servings of vegetables. As much as I enjoyed all of the delicious food that I ate, I was definitely missing all those extra nutrients! Enter: A Big ‘Ol Grilled Chicken Salad I took care […]


And The Diagnosis Is…

by Courtney on August 30, 2010


Well, the good news is…nothing is broken! The bad news is…I’m supposed to hobble around in this hot getup… Fortunately, Cody doesn’t seem to mind it. After getting x-rayed, the doctor said that I just had some severe bruising and swelling, which I’ll have to treat with RICE: Rest Ice Compress Elevate I was very […]


A Little “Courtney Time”

by Courtney on August 30, 2010


Sometimes, you just need some “ME” time, and this weekend, that’s exactly what I did. After posting on Saturday afternoon, I decided to take the rest of the weekend off from blogging to just relax and enjoy life. I didn’t want to be cooped up in front of my computer screen, because once I sit […]


It Just Didn’t Compare

by Courtney on August 28, 2010


I was SO HAPPY to be home in my own bed, with my own bathroom, with my little Cody last night. As much as I love going away on vacation, it’s always so nice to be back to the coziness of my own home. And apparently, it was cozy enough to end up sleeping until […]


An Evening In Italy

by Courtney on August 27, 2010


I am obsessed. Italy has long been on my list of places to travel to someday. Everything about just strikes me as beyond gorgeous; so until I get my opportunity to travel there for real, I will use yesterday’s travels to hold me over for now. Last night, Jay and I decided to spend part […]


It Was No “Hangover” But It Sure Was Fun!

by Courtney on August 26, 2010


Las Vegas has been such a BLAST! What a great place to be with all of your closest friends! Yesterday, Jay and I took a little walk up the street to Planet Hollywood to check out a spot for lunch that had been recommended to me by numerous people: Earl of Sandwich.   When we […]


Sushi To Swoon For

by Courtney on August 25, 2010


Last night, after a long day of fun in the sun, our crew got together to have a few drinks at Octane, which is one of the bars located right in our hotel. I was totally diggin’ the atmosphere and cool vibe of Octane. Even though it was small and wide open, it still felt […]


Viva Las Vegas!!

by Courtney on August 24, 2010


We have arrived!!   After a much smoother, yet long day of traveling, we finally arrived in Vegas. WOOO HOOO! Our flight went very smoothly (thank goodness) and our hotel was a super quick drive away from the airport, so we were able to get settled right away. Here’s the view from our room: After […]


T-Minus 3 Hours!

by Courtney on August 23, 2010


The bags are packed…   After some chaotic last minute packing…  A sweaty half hour run was taken, and a healthy breakfast was had…   Banana oats topped with a small piece of Fruit & Nut Manna Bread, some blueberries, & some PB. Cody isn’t quite sure what’s going on… (I’m certainly gonna miss my […]
