Boy, do I have a dinner recipe for you guys tonight! And do you want to know the best part?? I didn’t lift a finger to prepare it. That’s right! Jay struck again with his off-the-charts cooking skills. I mean, I knew he could cook, but tonight was seriously impressive. We sat down (in the […]


Another Year Older

Winking smile

Another year older? Yes. Another year wiser? One would beg to differ. I spent the majority of the day lounging around at home, keeping things pretty low key. Of course there was some cake eating involved, and at one point, I actually decided to go on to Jay’s PS3 and download Tetris. I used to […]

by Courtney on January 28, 2011

Thank goodness today was Friday! After having a little bit of fun last night at our Double Date Night, we’ll just say I woke up feeling a little, well…let’s just call it tired. I almost felt like I was channeling my inner Jack Black from School of Rock… source You all know which part I’m […]


They’re Baaaaack

by Courtney on January 26, 2011

Another reason I love Birthday Week?… source I return home from a great session of BodyPump at the gym, only to have my entire dinner cooked and ready for me…all courtesy of the hubby. As soon as I walked through the door, I was welcomed with the amazing aromas of barbeque and garlic. Does it […]

Guess What I Found Out Today?

by Courtney on January 24, 2011


Well, yesterday was a bit of a bummer… Unfortunately, my Jets didn’t win their game last night, but I was at least happy to see them put up a good fight. The beginning of the game was lookin’ iffy! Fortunately, I was in good company, with plenty of good food to go ‘round… (FYI: One […]
