The Whole Crew Gets Together

Yesterday’s barbecue was such a blast! It’s always a great time when I get together with the girls, but it’s not very often that we’re able to coordinate schedules to get both the girls AND the guys together on the same day. I think the last time that happened was either the Halloween Party or […]


Better To Be Safe Than Sorry

Jay and I are totally ninja kicking our to-do list today. All of the pool furniture has been picked up and stored in the shed (I’m hoping it will make its way back out again before then end of summer but I have doubts…). All of the patio furniture has either been put in the […]


He Makes A Mean Breakfast

Today had to be the first Saturday in weeks where both Jay and I did not have any other commitments and were able to just relax. Lately, it seems like one, or both, of us has one thing or another going on and we haven’t been able to just enjoy each others’ company. It felt […]


The Fashion Friday Archives

by Courtney on August 26, 2011

I totally blame it on the pumpkin coffee. Because ever since, I have been completely and utterly in “fall” mode. I’m itching to take out my decorations, and even found myself peeking through the closet yesterday afternoon in search of my ugglies. So my plan for you all this afternoon was to put together a […]


Rising Above The Negativity

HLS Panel (600x401)

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! How are we all doing this morning? Rising Above the Negativity So this morning, I sat down and planned on writing out a long outline for all of you from the panel that I spoke on with three fellow bloggers at the Healthy Living Summit this past weekend. I […]


Ice Cream, For The Win

I think somebody was trying to play a mean trick on me tonight… I was on my own for dinner since hubby had to work late. I already knew this from this morning and had planned on just winging it whenever hunger struck. Sandwiches for dinner are definitely not out of the norm for me […]


The Rumors Are True

by Courtney on August 25, 2011


So this morning, I was reading through the comments on last night’s Tangents post and saw that Karen had mentioned Dunkin Donuts already having their Pumpkin Spice coffee available. So then I even put out a call on Twitter to find out if the rumors were true, and many of you were just as excited […]


Music Makes The Workout

by Courtney on August 25, 2011

After spending the last three mornings lollygagging around the house, waiting to get my workout in for the day, I must say that today’s 5am wake-up call was not only welcomed, but it was enjoyed. Go ahead, you can say it. I’m a little crazy. I started my morning off with a quick 2 mile […]


Full Of Tangents, Take 4

Guess what? I’ve got a softball game that I’m headed out to tonight, so you know what that means… It’s Tangent Time! And we, my friends, are up to Take 4. (In case you missed ‘em, here’s Take 1, Take 2, and Take 3) So now, let’s DO this! -Tonight’s softball game could potentially be […]


Missing Motivation

by Courtney on August 24, 2011


Since I was feeling hungry pretty much right after I woke up this morning, I figured I would just make some breakfast and then take care of the workout once everything digested. Really, I should know by now that this plan of attack is usually not in my best interest because if the workout doesn’t […]
