WIAW: Recycled

Ok, seriously. Is there something in the air the past couple of days? Because I feel like my allergies are suddenly all out of whack. Itchy throat, tingly nose, water eyes…the whole nine. Blahhhh.


Luckily, there are much worse things in life to complain about so I’m gonna just leave it at that. Winking smile Instead, let’s move right on to today’s WIAW post (aka, What I Ate Tuesday).


A whole wheat sandwich thin with peanut butter & banana + …umm…another cookie dough iced coffee.


Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

Mid-Morning Snack

Surprisingly enough, I wasn’t really even all that hungry but wanted to eat something more just for the sake of eating so I snacked on a package of belVita biscuits.

Lunchtime salads are pretty much my favorite way to work on reaching my daily veggie intake goal. This one had all the usuals, but I was pumped to finally get some avocados that were actually good (I’ve had horrible luck the past few weeks…AND they’re like, $2.00 a piece. SO not cool).


More exciting than that salad there, however, is the note sitting right next to it. Deep tissue massage for this mama on Saturday! Woot woot!

Mid-Afternoon Snack

After work this afternoon, I headed out to BJ’s for a few items to stock up on, and a few new items for summer, and snacked on a cookie dough Quest bar on the way.

BJ’s recently sent me a gift card to check out some of their in-club items for easy and affordable summer entertaining. (And just a heads up…BJ’s is currently  providing a free 60-day trial membership through July 8 so everyone can shop, even if you aren’t currently a member!).

One of the items I already knew I wanted to get my hands on was one of these beverage dispensers.


I know this will come in handy next month for Lucas’s birthday, and I’m sure it’ll get a ton of use throughout the rest of the summer, too. I’m envisioning a big ol’ thing of homemade sangria up in there. Winking smile

Knowing that our pool will (hopefully!) be back up and running soon with a new liner, I figured I’d see if they had any pool floats…


And they sure did! I decided to snag this jumbo mattress float and have totally “tagged” this is MY float for the season.


I even told Jay…what you see on the package is what you’ll see in our pool. Mwahaha.

Amongst some other food items I needed to get (and didn’t necessarily “need” but wanted…aka, the chocolates you can see below), I also found an adorable little pair of water shoes for Lucas and some new sunscreen.


Thanks again for the gift card, BJ’s!


Jay and I had pizza on Friday night and for whatever reason, I wound up ordering a 12-cut for just the two of us. Umm, we have lots of leftovers. Or, had.

We decided to heat up a couple of slices for each of us (topped with sausage, peppers, and onions, mmmmm!) and I had some leftover steamed broccoli on the side.


The other dish hiding out in the corner there wasn’t mine…that belonged to this babe and included a little “baby” omelet (aka, egg yolk + cheese) and sweet potatoes.


Side note: I absolutely love the way he’s always crossing his feet. Too. Stinkin. Cute.


Because I can’t go a night without dessert…


That is, once again, another recycled photo right there, but it is one of the most amazing desserts ever. A must-try, if ya ask me.

And that’s that! Another WIAW in the books…and now it’s time to get this work day started (although I am working from home on Wednesdays for the next couple of months which I’m certainly not complaining about!). Hope you guys have a great one! Smile

    Lilly from Complexions is my absolutely favorite massage therapist! I see her every month for a deep tissue massage. If you haven’t had her before you will love her!

    The chocolate chip cookie dough Quest bar is one of my favs! I actually just bought a box of the cookies n’ cream. I can’t wait to try that flavor out!

    BJ’s is the best! We have a membership there and go all the time. In fact, I think I need to make a trip there this week!

    I was looking at his little crossed feet before I even read your sidenote about them and was thinking the exact same thing. He is such a cutie Courtney :)

    I am NOT loving how much avocados are costing lately either. So sad! I feel like I have to ration them out when I really just want to eat the whole thing. Ha!

    Hunter crosses his feet all the time too! It cracks me up. He’ll do it in his high chair, in the car seat, sitting on the couch, you name it. Hilarious.

    I have yet to try that yogurt concoction! Need to get on that one.

    Have you tried OTC eye allergy drops (NOT the decongestant type otherwise you can experience a nasty rebound effect when you discontinue), just the antihistamine type? I noticed that my allergies, all around, were much better, even when I forgot to take Claritin (which I take year-round). My dentist said it’s because the eye drops get absorbed by the sinuses. By the way, my allergies have been out of control since the birth of my daughter four years ago. Not sure if the two are related or not, but I’ve heard about this before from other women.
