Carrot Cake Buckwheat Bowl

by Courtney on March 26, 2011


Hello, Saturday. So nice to see you! After waking up and taking care of a little clean-up around the house, I was more than ready for a nice, delicious breakfast. Today, buckwheat was the name of the game! Oh yes, and of course, some coffee. I used the same base for today’s buckwheat as I […]


Worth The Wait

It’s Friday…and I’m in total granny mode. No surprise there! As soon as I got home from work today, I was happily surprised to see that Jay had gotten out of work early and was already home to greet me. We spent about an hour just hanging out on the couch playing with Cody and […]

Happy, Happy Wednesday! How are we all doin’ today?? I’ve been a little on the tired side all day, which has me confused because I actually got a decent amount of sleep last night. Who knows…?

Fulfilling A Craving

by Courtney on March 22, 2011


It’s no secret…I take a lot of pictures of food. So it should come as no surprise that even when I’m looking through pictures of past vacations, I will inevitably come across some of my favorite eats. Well, that’s exactly what happened to me last week as I was browsing through some pictures of my […]


When There’s No Plan

At 5:10 this morning, my iPod alarm went off with the tunes of “Baby Got Back” blaring from its speakers. (Not the ideal song to wake up to in the morning, but I do like kickin’ it old school when I’m running!) This proceeded to happen approximately 5 more times, for about 5 seconds each, […]
