Saturday Highlights

Hey everyone! How’s your Saturday been?

Although mine has been fairly low-key compared to last Saturday, I’ve still totally been enjoying what’s turned out to be a lovely day. Some of the highlights…

An early morning trip to the Farmers Market


Which was certainly hustlin’ and bustlin’ with tons of people.


A cup of my favorite iced coffee ever, to tote with me while walking the market.

Some new finds from the market: tomato and pesto flavored pasta + a new peanut butter.


For the locals out there, this may or may not be old news to you now, but The Peanut Principle makes their own nut butters…and A LOT of ‘em, too! After sampling just about each and every one of them this morning, I finally decided on “Raisin the Roof” – cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Yes, please!


Trying out the new 10lb. Slimdown Xtreme Total Body video.

I really enjoyed this workout! I’m looking forward to trying the more targeted videos (upper, lower, core) but I’m bummed that my On Demand channel isn’t yet offering the cardio kickboxing and/or the yoga videos. Hopefully soon?

Leftovers for lunch…just as delicious the second time around.


Trashy TV – I got totally sucked into a Keeping Up with the Kardashians marathon of sorts on E! while doing some studying this afternoon.


And finally, an awesome package that came in the mail…


Do you guys remember last Fashion Friday when I featured the Urbandillo Classic Hobo? Well this afternoon I received a package from the amazingly generous Amanda, from The Nutritionist Reviews.


She wrote me a letter saying how she had seen my feature on the bag, had just received it from the company, and thought that I might enjoy it. Amanda, I still cannot get over this incredibly considerate gesture. Thank you SO MUCH! Smile


The purse is the most beautiful shade of purple, has tons of little compartments and pockets, and is absolutely HUGE. I feel like I could probably fit about three Codys in there.


I love it!

Now, I’m off to go relax for the evening on the couch with what will most likely be some more trashy TV and maybe a dish of this. Sounds perfect to me. Smile

Question for the Evening:

What are your Saturday highlights?

    Yum, that peanut butter sounds great! My Saturday has been really low key. I did a circuit workout this morning, some reading for my classes this afternoon, and now I’m being lazy and watching tv :). I love it. And that is so awesome that Amanda sent you that purse! What an incredibly nice thing to do!!

    How thoughtful of Amanda! My Saturday involved a fab workout followed by half a day at work, hanging out with friends, having the most delicious salad @CPK and then watching Friends With Benefits- loved it! I haven’t enjoyed a movie like that in so long!

    Highlights of Saturday included taking hubby’s gma out for her birthday, and then watching lots of college football while eating the buffalo chicken sandwiches I made. :) The downside was that our hot water tank has a leak. Annndd now we have cold water. 😛

    But let’s focus on the fun football watching, shall we?! :)

    Wow, that was so sweet, that purse is beautiful!!

    I made $50 on a yard sale! Then I went out to dinner with a girlfriend for what will most likely be our last al fresco ocean side dinner of the year (it was a bit chilly!). There was a great cover band making all of the songs they played unique – lots of fun!

    Love the purse
    my saturday consisted of early 5 a.m. run
    then off to the dirt race track where it ended up pouring/storming, races canceled and I played in rain in my rubber purple rain boots!
    Went out to dinner w/friends
    Came home and worked from midnight-2 a.m.
    now I want p.b. so I”m outta here :)
