Hey, friends! Right now, I’m most likely getting ready to celebrate and have lots of fun at Kathryn & Paul’s wedding. WOO HOO! But in the meantime, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes for you to try out for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Whether you’re heading to a party, have unexpected […]


First It Was Me

by Courtney on August 30, 2012


Finished! Just before noon today, I finished up all of the cupcakes and they’re all packed up and ready to go. I did two dozen chocolate pb cup, one dozen triple lemon (lemon cake with lemon mousse filling and lemon frosting, which turned out AWESOME – I’ll have to share soon!), and one dozen vanilla […]


THE Thing To Do

by Courtney on August 30, 2012


Howdy howdy! Happy Thursday! How’s everyone’s day starting off so far? So last night was a wonderful evening – I got away from the computer and out of the house for a bit. Jay and I had to make a trip to the mall, so we headed out after eating a quick dinner of random […]


What Are the Odds?

by Courtney on August 29, 2012


I always appreciate having a buddy with me in the kitchen while I’m working…even if he is of the feline variety. Cody spent most of his morning along with me in the kitchen today, usually not too far away from my feet. Yep, I’m pretty sure I almost plowed into him at least half a […]


Determined To Get Up

by Courtney on August 29, 2012


I was absolutely determined to get up and moving nice and early today. I know I’ve mentioned it to you all a few times recently, but I have been having the hardest time getting up with my alarm. Snoozes of 30-45 minutes have been the norm…so not cool. Apparently, I was quite motivated to get […]


Does This Ever Happen To You Guys?

by Courtney on August 28, 2012


I’m so, so thankful for the fact that we have friends. Specifically, today, I’m thankful for our male friends who offered to give up some of their Tuesday evening to come and help Jay out with our back deck. Because if it wasn’t them out there, it’d be me…and that would just be bad for […]

Roasted Green Beans and Steak Fajita Wraps

by Courtney on August 28, 2012


Goooooood morning! How are things shakin’ for everyone this morning? We’ve got a little bit of rain that just finished up over here, which would normally make things feel quite cozy and comfy, but it’s so darn muggy! I don’t know what happened? Humidity always makes me feel just so…icky. Last Night’s Dinner Ooooo baby, […]


An Update on My Exercise Routine With HA

by Courtney on August 27, 2012


Sometimes, a simple salad does the trick. Other times? A big, beautiful, complex salad full of delicious and surprising flavors is just what the doctor ordered. Today happened to be the latter. As I was rummaging through my fridge this afternoon, I knew I was in the mood for a salad, but kept coming across […]


Actually Matching

by Courtney on August 27, 2012


Well here we are…already in to the last week in August. It’s definitely been a great month so far, and I have a feeling it’s going to end on a super positive note, with Kathryn & Paul’s wedding this Friday. Ohhhh, I’m so excited! I’ve got a busy week leading up to it, so I […]
