Rocking My World

by Courtney on March 12, 2013

Alright…is anyone else totally exhausted this morning after staying up to watch the three hour season finale of The Bachelor? I told myself I only going to watch until 10pm, but then I totally got roped in to watching after the rose show and was up past 11pm. I’m getting old…

I won’t say anything about the episode, since I’m sure there are plenty of you smarties out there who recorded it and actually got some sleep last night. But I will say that both the “break up” and the proposal totally had me teary. And after seeing Sean with his final pick, it seems like the definitely made the right choice for himself. Hey, best of luck to the TV romance couple!


So I’ve got to share a couple of yummy snacks with you guys from yesterday because, well, they were yummy. The first one being these delicious little guys…


After seeing them around for so long, last week I finally got in contact with Lindsay and ordered a dozen of her Healthy Bites. If you check out her site (in the link!) you’ll see that she has quite a few awesome sounding flavors, and since I couldn’t decide on just one, she recommended me ordering a sampler pack with all of the flavors…including apple/apricot cinnamon, muddy mocha buddies, goodie bites, recovery bites, and this month’s special, key lime bites(!).

So far I’ve tried almost all of them and I can honestly say that they are all incredibly delicious. Well done, Lindsay. Well done!

Another favorite snack as of late? I know I mentioned this to you guys last week, but they’re still rocking my world…


Fun fact: I bought these while grocery shopping over the weekend and wound up getting hungry while I shopped so I opened up the box right in the middle of the store and ate a pack while waiting in line to check out. I have no shame, my friends. I’m still on the lookout for these so-called yogurt covered fruit snacks that some of you speak of…I MUST find these!


Last Night’s Dinner

Thanks to Sunday’s prep-work, last night’s dinner was only a quick microwave heat-up away.

beef stew and bread

You guys like how we still have yet to throw away the pink plastic tablecloth from the weekend? ;)

We each had ourselves a big bowl of my favorite Burgundy Beef Stew (I actually halved the recipe this time) along with a couple slices of leftover Italian bread.

Apparently, I’m all about the red meat lately – meatballs Sunday, beef stew yesterday, and more plans for red meat during the week. Hey, I guess Baby Tooth wants his fill right now?! Speaking of the little one…


  • The Baby Tooth page was updated this morning!
  • The Baby Tooth page was ALSO updated last night, and is sporting a brand new header! Check it out…and feel free to enter the giveaway while you’re there!
  • And I’ve also gotta give a quick HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out to both my friends Joey and Andrea, who are celebrating birthdays today!

Question for the Morning:

What’s one food rocking your world these days?

I love the baby belly pic with the fruit snacks…you are too cute! There is no shame in having a snack at the grocery store!
Hmm, what’s been rockin’ my world lately? Probably peanut butter. Surprise, surprise!

Love those fruit snacks! I just had my first Girl Scout Cookies of the season, I have a feeling they’ll be rocking my world till they’re all gone!

Awwww, lucky!! I’m still waiting for my order to come in, haha!


5 Claire @ Keeping Up With Claire March 12, 2013 at 9:12 am

Definitely coconut! I don’t know what it is about it, but I’ve been putting it in everything lately-on yogurt, with peanut butter and a banana, even in smoothies. Guess I’m just feelin’ tropical!


6 Courtney March 12, 2013 at 9:22 am

Coconut DOES sound good! However, I’m just anxiously awaiting my coconut coated Samoas girl scout cookies to arrive… ;)


7 Laurie @ Love, Laugh, Laurie March 12, 2013 at 9:19 am

I agree, he and his pick seem perfect! And I’m super excited about the new bachelorette!

Aww, what a cute prego belly!! ;) I am loving your yellow polka dot shirt, too! It is so sunshiney and cheerful :).

And yes, I was one of those who stayed up for the 3 hours for the Bachelor finale. Sometimes I wish they would just shorten it up a bit and make it 2 hours. Three hours seems a bit excessive!

I’ve totally bought snacks before at a grocery store and eaten them in the store. Same with water. Sometimes you’re just hungry and you can’t wait! Starburst jelly beans are in my life these days. I can’t get enough of them.

For some strange reason I’ve been loving eggs lately. I want them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

I loved eating meat when I was pregnant! With my first son, I absolutely craved juicy, red steaks and mashed potatoes. I made sure we had that for dinner every week…my husband loved it! With my second son, I craved buffalo chicken subs, but didn’t eat them as much as I wanted because I had horrible heartburn the second half of the pregnancy.

Oh and don’t believe the old wive’s tale about heartburn meaning the baby has a lot of hair. I had ZERO heartburn with baby one and he had a full head of hair (he even had a faux hawk when he was born). Baby two was practicallty bald and my heartburn was so bad, I had to have Tums with me at all times.

Haha, I am right there with ya! The Bachelor sucked me in to watching the whole thing and I’m regretting it this morning! They are so cute together though. What do you think of the next Bachelorette choice?

16 Elizabeth @ My Neon Running Shoes March 12, 2013 at 10:03 am

I have been rocking spinach lately… kinda lame I know but I put on paninis, wraps, in salads. I can’t get enough! On second thought it might be the TJ salad dressings I can’t get enough of because those usually follow the spinach!

I just saw the proposal and after not watching it for weeks, I was so surprised he chose who he did! But like I said, I haven’t watched the show for weeks so I really had no idea what had happened.

Love your cravings but now you have me craving fruit snacks too! :)


18 Jennifer March 12, 2013 at 10:18 am

Red meat is a good source of iron, def good for the growing boy! COngrats!


19 Ashley @ Life and Fitness March 12, 2013 at 10:28 am

One food that is rocking my world lately is home-made mac&cheese. My boyfriend’s mom made it for me last week & I am eating up all the leftovers lately! Sooooo good. I don’t watch the Bachelor, but a 3 hour finale, that’s crazzzzy!

I’m exhausted from staying up too. Grandma Cotter here.


21 Lisa March 12, 2013 at 10:58 am

I need to order some healthy bites I believe!
I’ve been obsessed with coconut butter, squash, and almond butter lately.


22 Avery @ Southern Belle Living Well March 12, 2013 at 11:33 am

Ooooo going to her link now! Your right, I’ve been rooting for his fiancee the whole time, so I was THRILLED to see that he chose her :)

Lately, Oranges have been my thing. Three in 2 days, whoop whoop!

26 Courtney March 12, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Thanks! I’ll have to double check when I get home, since I honestly have no idea, lol, but here’s the post where I bought it… Maybe you’ll be able to tell? :)


27 Amanda @ .running with spoons. March 12, 2013 at 12:13 pm

I’ve actually gotten a little better at staying up later over the past couple of months, but back in the day I was basically dead on my feet by 9:30. I guess that’s just what comes with waking up at 5 or 6 :D

As for food that’s been rocking my world – definitely bananas. I’ve always loved them, but lately I’ve been eating 2 or 3 a day and it doesn’t look like it’ll be letting up any time soon!

30 Nicole @ FruitNFitness March 12, 2013 at 12:40 pm

The beef stew looks really good! My favorite foods as of recently have been clementines, my yogurt bowls and granola. I have broken into a bag of snacks while grocery shopping before.

That is so funny, at my 20 weeks appnt 2 weeks ago, I found out my girl was 12 ounces and was so worried, like is she going to be normal?! My doctor laughed in my face and said to stop reading books and going on the internet. She said it’s all nonsense at this stage, they are all different. Worry never stops though and I suppose it never will!
