All yesterday afternoon, this morning, and some of this afternoon, I have been hard at work on the ‘ol bloggy! I’ve been working so hard that I haven’t really been able to give Cody the attention that he’s so used to. Apparently, he was annoyed enough with me to come up onto the kitchen table […]

We Earned It

I guess you could say that the extra $47.00 I earned yesterday afternoon was burning a serious hole in my pocket. Unexpected cash? I mean, sure, we could have put it towards the grocery shopping I still have yet to do this week, OR… We could make it a low-key dinner + movie date night. […]

…and a quick trip to Plato’s Closet… I’m $47.00 richer! Woahhh baby! Because a good amount of my clothes were “too professional,” they couldn’t take them, (too bad I ran out of all my old teeny bopper clothes a long time ago) but they’ll still donate them to Goodwill so I’m cool with that. However, […]

Would you believe that I actually had nothing to blog about last night? Nothing. I know, talk about a shocker! But as I sat down yesterday evening after eating dinner I realized, “Wow, I really have nothing to talk about at all tonight.” I thought about reaching to come up with something but then I […]

On Sunday, I was spending some time browsing through my favorite blogs, as I typically do on a Sunday. Before I knew it, I found myself staring face to face with an amazing photo of The Fitnessista’s Perfect Protein Pancakes. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen Gina make these before; but now that I have […]

Finally Making Progress

This afternoon has been pretty productive around here in the Horan household! When we look at it, it really doesn’t look like we’ve made much progress but trust me…if I had taken “before” pictures, you’d see the difference! Once Jay got home from his golf outing, the two of us started to tackle our spare […]

Three Thoughts

Surprisingly, it didn’t take much effort…but my convincing paid off last night! And I was so engrossed in my amazing cup of fro yo that the camera wasn’t even thought of until after I finished. Woops. I will say, however, that it looked pretty darn similar to the cup I created at Sweet Frog’s in […]

Pool Intervals

by Courtney on July 23, 2011

Let’s see… First, I headed out and completed some “intervals” at the pool; and by “intervals,” I mean: -Read one chapter in my book while sweating my face off… -Spend 10 minutes lounging on my pretty pink float […]
