Spooks, Celebrations, & First Time Shopping!

by Courtney on October 23, 2010

G’Mornin’ Folks! It’s the weekend!!!! WOOT WOOT! Can I just tell you how psyched I was about my Friday evening? You may or may not be aware of the fact that I am obsessed with scary movies. Give me suspense, blood, gore, horror, terror…I love ‘em all. So it should be no surprise that I […]


Fashion Friday: Leopard Prints

by Courtney on October 22, 2010


Happy Fashion Friday!! Yesterday evening, while browsing through some old magazines, I came across a section of Fall Fashion Trends that quickly caught my attention. Some of them were pretty typical, but one immediately made me think of Fashion Friday, and had me wondering what everyone else’s opinion on the trend is. Ok, so what’s […]


Build Your Own Bootcamp

by Courtney on October 21, 2010

Confession: I was a super bad blogger today. I did not pick up my camera once to take a photo of any of my eats. Fortunately, you guys didn’t miss much… breakfast was a simple Chobani + Quaker Oatmeal Squares; lunch included some leftover Minestrone Soup, Kashi crackers, & the crust off a corner piece […]


Part of the Group

I did it. I created one of the most wonderful bowls of oatmeal. Ever. And it’s all thanks to a generous dollop of my leftover Pumpkin Mousse with Pecan Streusel Topping!! You guys convinced me…I guess I really wasn’t crazy! I brought my oats to work with me (a base of oats, skim milk, 1/2 […]

Insane Incline Run

Happy Tuesday evening my friends! I just got home from a fabulous trip to the gym, AND I have a new workout to share with you. Aren’t you psyched? You may remember, a few weeks back, when I attempted a couple new cardio workouts out of an old Self magazine that I have? Well, today […]

Yesterday, I shared my yummy Fall Funfetti Cookies with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting… Has anyone gone and tried to find the festive Fall Funfetti cake mix yet??? Well, today, I share with you […]


Comfort Food Back Home

by Courtney on October 18, 2010


After a long hard day of work, (especially being a Monday), there are certain things that just totally appeal to my senses: My big cozy couch Changing into my sweats as quickly as possible A nice chilled glass of wine Or, depending on the day, a nice cold beer Coming home to my boys Turning […]



I’m such a sucker for fall-related food and candy items. While grocery shopping a couple weeks ago, I came across this festive Betty Crocker box… and didn’t even think twice about tossing it into my cart! I had a feeling it would come in quite handy for this past weekend’s Fall Festival festivities, and it […]


Our 2nd Annual Fall Festival!

by Courtney on October 17, 2010


Today was a day I’ve been looking forward to for months… Fall Festival! Last year, a small group of us got together to start what we later deemed as our “First Annual Fall Festival Weekend.” Last year’s FF included lots of fun things, like apple picking, pumpkin carving, and other fun festivities.       […]

This afternoon, Jay and I met up with some of our friends for one of our favorite, local, fall events: Troy Chowderfest! Despite it being a little very windy, the rain held off…thank goodness! There was chowder to be had! Guests could buy as many tickets as you want. Each ticket cost $1.00, which would […]
