Raccoon Eyes

by Courtney on April 26, 2011


Remember this past winter when we remodeled our kitchen? Yeah, that was a blast. Well, for the past few months, Jay and I have been given the daily reminder of our remodel every time we walked out into our garage. And outside to our back yard… But thanks to some major help from my Dad […]


Return to Morning Routines

by Courtney on April 26, 2011


This morning has probably been one of the most productive mornings I’ve had in weeks. Since the whole unemployed thing happened, my regular routine has been fairly nonexistent. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m sleeping the day away…I love mornings to much to do that. But whereas I used to be getting up […]

I’ve got a mouth-watering dinner in store for you all tonight. You’re not gonna want to miss it! Seee? I told ya. A couple of weeks ago, Jay and I were watching one of our favorite shows, Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives on the Food Network. Seriously, we love that show. I have no idea where […]

Easter Eats & Egg Hunt Shenanigans

by Courtney on April 24, 2011


Whew! Talk about a jam-packed day full of lots of delicious food! Late this morning, Jay and I headed over to his Aunt’s house for Easter brunch. I was immediately greeted with a ruby red grapefruit margarita. Nothin’ like startin’ the day off with a little tequila, eh? It tasted light, refreshing, and totally delicious. […]


Cody’s Easter

by Courtney on April 24, 2011


Cody woke up this morning not quite sure what to do with all the bright, colorful “things” around him. “Hmmm, what is this…?” So he started exploring a little more… And a little more… And then he finally got comfortable. But not for long… It was play time! “Maybe if I don’t move, it won’t […]


Two of My Favorites: Shopping and Baking

by Courtney on April 23, 2011


Hey Hey! How’s everyone’s Saturday been so far? Mine has pretty much been split between shopping and baking…two of my favorites! The shopping was more of a “time to stock up” trip to Sam’s Club, but we ended up with some goodies. It’s amazing how much the money adds up when we shop here. But […]


I Gotta Feeling

by Courtney on April 23, 2011


Guess who was up and out the door at 6:30am this morning for the gym??? You guessed it! I know, I shocked myself, too. On the way to the gym this morning, I snacked on a Clif Z Bar to fend off any hunger. I don’t like eating too much before an early morning workout, […]

Do you guys know who drove an extra 10 minutes out of her way just to get her free iced coffee today?? That’s right…this girl. Please excuse my ragamuffin appearance. In honor of Earth […]
