Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

by Courtney on October 31, 2012


I just love, love, love quick breads. Like, a lot. I swear, if I could have a loaf in my house at all times, I’d be a super happy camper. Yesterday, I made another attempt at a new banana bread recipe. I actually almost made my pumpkin banana bread, but I know Jay isn’t really […]


Ready and Waiting

by Courtney on October 31, 2012


Happy Halloween! We are now ready and waiting for any trick-or-treaters who most likely will not may come our way. Unfortunately, I don’t think the weather is supposed to be all the great today, so I guess we’ll see how all that goes. Either way, I am stocked up on two of my favorites: 100 […]


New Vacation Clothes…Or Not

by Courtney on October 30, 2012

Funny story to go along with this post. Keep reading…you’ll see why. I have to admit it. I’ve been getting pretty darn excited about our upcoming trip to Mexico in February. I know it’s still a good 3-1/2 months away, but lately I’ve been finding myself looking back at photos from this year’s trip and […]


Back in the Saddle

by Courtney on October 30, 2012


After taking just about three days off from any sort of working out, it felt great to jump back in the saddle today. Gosh, it really is crazy how things can change, isn’t it? I love the fact that I wasn’t going nuts over not getting any workouts in. In fact, I actually enjoyed those […]


Golden Birthday

by Courtney on October 30, 2012


Well, I am very happy to report that, just as I suspected, Sandy did not have much of an effect on us here. In fact, our leaf pile is still fully intact. That’s actually sort of surprising though, since it was pretty windy here most of yesterday evening. Going to bed last night was pretty […]


Call Me a Proud (Cat) Mama

by Courtney on October 29, 2012


Okay, so over the weekend, Cody and I had a pretty great game of fetch going on. We must have gone back and forth with his little fetch toy at least 15 times. Of course, he wound up batting it under the fridge more than half of those rounds. I had my camera right nearby […]

A More Subdued Halloween Party

by Courtney on October 28, 2012


Well, another fun Halloween party is in the books! Unfortunately, I didn’t end up taking too many pictures last night, but I did snag a few. As always, there was plenty of good food – garbage bread, buffalo chicken dip, taco dip, funfetti dip(!!), guacamole, chips, veggies, etc… In addition to my pumpkin keg (which […]

Hey, guess what guys and gals? THIS gal got a little crafty this afternoon. Check it out! Is that not super fun or what? As much as I wish I could take the credit for this fabulous idea, I can not. A few weeks ago, I received a fun little package in the mail from […]


Made An Evening Out Of It

by Courtney on October 27, 2012


WOO HOO! I finally got to see Paranormal Activity 4!! You guys know I loved the second one and the third one, so there was no doubt I had to check out the fourth. Of course, Jay and I couldn’t go see Paranormal Activity without our friend, Joey. And, of course, we can’t see Joey […]
