Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Frosting – almond buttercream, to be exact. Check out the recipe below! You’re pretty intrigued by that title, right? Don’t worry…it’s down below! But first…I think it’s time to get new running sneakers. I woke up feeling rather energetic and ready for a run, so I dominated the treadmill with […]


The Best I’ve Ever Had

by Courtney on January 22, 2011


Hey everyone! How’s your Saturday going? I’ve had myself a nice little Saturday, which started off with a fun Starbucks date! Earlier in the week, I made plans to meet up with my friend, Heather. Unfortunately with our busy schedules, we don’t get to see each other nearly as often as we’d like. So we […]


Was It YOU??

by Courtney on January 21, 2011

Let me tell you…last night’s massage was wonderful! I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated afterward. I had actually planned on coming home and heading to bed shortly after, however that darn Jersey Shore sucked me in and I ended up watching that until 11pm. Did anyone else watch last night?? source Pauly D and Vinny […]


Thrown Together in Less Than Three

by Courtney on January 20, 2011

Winking smile

Do you all have superpowers or something? Because I’m feeling SO MUCH BETTER this afternoon and I’m quite tempted to say it’s from all your wonderful get-well wishes. So THANK YOU…I’m on the mend!! Thanks to my later-than-expected-but-still-super-fun-dinner-out last night, I didn’t end up getting anything prepped for today’s meals. Also unfortunately for me…I didn’t […]


You Know You’re Sick When…

by Courtney on January 20, 2011


Darn this darn cold!   Right now, my nose is looking and feeling a whole lot like this: source I know, I know…it’s just a cold. But I just needed to take my five seconds to complain about it. Ok, I’m good. So maybe I’ll blame it on the cold, but I actually did not […]


I’ve Got Goodies Up For Grabs

by Courtney on January 19, 2011

If you read STSL often, then it should be no secret that I love cereal. So when I was contacted from MyBlogSpark asking if I’d be interested in participating in a giveaway involving Multigrain Cheerios cereal, there was really no question! I honestly LOVE Multigrain Cheerios! I don’t know why I don’t think to pick […]


Am I Really Going To Cali?

by Courtney on January 18, 2011

Open-mouthed smile

I think I’m still in shock… I can’t believe that I’m going to California!! All afternoon I’m pretty positive I walked around this place with a huge smile plastered on my face. I was so pumped, I even decided to do a second workout after my morning run. But of course, I also took some […]


A Big Announcement!

by Courtney on January 18, 2011


Could today get any better??? As if I wasn’t already excited enough about having another Snow Day today after having yesterday off… I go ahead and make the first bowl of stovetop oats that I’ve had in months… But these weren’t just any stovetop oats…we’re talkin’ PB & J Oats! In the oats base: 1/3 […]


A Fabulously Fun Day!

by Courtney on January 17, 2011


Guess what I did today???? Well, actually, I did a lot of things today…a lot of fun things, in fact. But, really, guess! …….. I went to BodyPump!! For the first time in a looooong time, I was finally able to make the trip to the gym. I’m a little embarassed to say that I […]

I might be a little excited right now… THE JETS WIN! THE JETS WIN!!!   My parents house is definitely filled with some very happy people right now! We headed over here earlier for an evening of football and food. As always, the food was plentiful… And the Jets gear was definitely out in full […]
