Twenty Years From Now…

by Courtney on June 27, 2011


Alright, I have seriously reached my quota for weed pulling this season… I don’t know what has gotten into me. Maybe I’m subconsciously trying to earn some “Wifey Points,” seeing as how my contribution to the yard work up until yesterday has been pretty slim. Either way, I was so happy to see that Jay […]

It’s ok, I am too…here’s what you may have missed: Something I’ve Never Done Before Party on the Agenda At the Request of the Birthday Girl Mom’s Birthday Party No Lazy Sunday For Me ****** Last night as I was getting ready for bed (i.e., brewing the iced coffee for […]


No Lazy Sunday For Me

by Courtney on June 26, 2011


I’m going to be totally honest with you all. I was planning on making today one of the laziest Sundays on record. Nothing sounded better than sitting on the couch all day, catching up on my DVR, and finding movies on FX. No, I’m not hung over, in case you’re curious! But out of the […]


Mom’s Birthday Party

by Courtney on June 26, 2011


Yesterday’s party with such a blast! One more “Happy Birthday” to my momma! Thankfully, we only had one brief stint of rain, which was right around dinner time, so everyone was able to load up on the massive amount of goods that my parents prepared. I honestly didn’t realize how stuffed my plate looked until […]


At the Request of the Birthday Girl

by Courtney on June 25, 2011


Since the last time I chatted with you all, I have been a busy bee…in the kitchen! One batch of Dark Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. One batch of Raspberry Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Raspberry Almond Buttercream (at the request of the Birthday Girl) And, ummm….oh yeah…some of these too. Yes, that […]


Party On The Agenda

by Courtney on June 25, 2011


I think somebody must have gotten into the iced coffee… because he has been WACKY all morning! Running around like a maniac, playing fetch in all areas of the house… It’s certainly been some fun entertainment. He even kept it going the entire time I was working through my killer workout this morning: 6.1 miles […]


Something I’ve Never Done Before

by Courtney on June 24, 2011


This afternoon, I made a successful trip to Target and picked up a birthday present for a very special someone. I also did something I’ve never done before… I went to see a movie all by myself. And when I say by myself, I mean it quite literally…the theater was empty! So I hunkered down […]


Rest Day Guilt and Comparisons

by Courtney on June 24, 2011


Before going to bed last night, I made the decision to make today a rest day. I have sore muscles all over (in a good way, but still) and my entire body just felt run down. So today, my sneaks and exercise equipment have all been getting a little break. I was feeling totally okay […]


Coffee Friday At Home

by Courtney on June 24, 2011


While we were away last week, you know I spent a lot of time in a certain Dunkin Donuts using their Wi-Fi and sipping iced coffees. Well on one of those occasions, I ended up splurging and ordering myself one of their Caramel Mocha Iced Coffees. I mean, I had been perched underneath the promotional […]


Burger For Him, Salmon For Her

by Courtney on June 23, 2011


I often get asked whether or not Jay and I eat the same meals. Tonight was not one of those nights. I’d say that probably 85% of the time, we will eat the same meals, or at least similar versions of the same meal. I can often vary my sources of protein at dinner, but […]
