Yoga Challenge, Week 1 Recap

by Courtney on October 8, 2012


Good morning. My name is Courtney, and I’m addicted to carbs. Especially when they’re in the form of homemade pizza and bagels. For the past two days, it’s been a bagel kinda morning, thanks to these. I just can’t help it. They’re SO good. And sometimes, a big, puffy, chewy (geez, here I go again […]


The Amount of Pumpkin In This Post Is Ridiculous

by Courtney on October 4, 2012


Mannnn, it is a gloomy day out there today. (Notice the closed up pool, changing leaves, and leaves in the yard…fall is definitely here!) Luckily, the rain didn’t really start up until after I got home this afternoon, which was much appreciated. After a quick stop at the post office to mail out some LOVE […]


People To See

by Courtney on May 3, 2012


Mornin’ folks! I’ve got places to go and people to see this morning (see below) so let’s zip through breakfast first, shall we? Actually, first, I know some of you may have noticed that some of my usual posting times are a bit thrown off (like last night’s). As it turns out, I’m still having […]


A Workout Date

by Courtney on April 26, 2012


So this, my friends, is what you call a dinner on the fly. Jay and I only had a short amount of time to eat dinner last night because we had a special 91st birthday celebration to head to for his grandma. At first I wanted cereal, then I wanted pb&j, but then I saw […]


So Much Happening on Sunday

by Courtney on April 15, 2012


Holy moly…lots going on today! Despite the fact that I had plans to do pretty much nothing all day except grocery shopping, I’d say that today turned out to be pretty darn busy and productive. First, I baked. And let me tell you…it is quite delicious. I’ll be sharing this with you all early this […]


Just Call Me Debbie…

by Courtney on December 7, 2010


Just a friendly reminder: If you haven’t yet checked out the “Bring SnackJoy to Life Personality Contest,” make sure you take a peek! I’ve got my fingers crossed and am really hoping my slogan for The Laughing Cow’s Light Blue Cheese will win the coveted personality. To check out the goods and (hopefully) give me […]


I Hoard Gourmet English Muffins…So What?

by Courtney on November 30, 2010


Boy I’ll tell ya…this gym decision is very difficult! You’ve all got so many great reasons that support BOTH sides that I’m now stuck at a stand-still. Hmphh. Well, here’s my plan for now: Tomorrow, I’m going to attend a BodyPump class after work. Perhaps actually being back inside the gym will help me determine […]


A Lame Day of Eats…Aww Shucks

by Courtney on November 1, 2010


Happy Monday everyone! I hope ya’ll got your workweek off to a great start. I got my workweek off to a great start with a little exercise action this morning: Jackie Warner’s Total Body Power Circuit from Exercise on Demand. I was really pleased with how much my muscles felt worked from when I did […]


Awesome Friday Workout, Donuts, & Indian Food

by Courtney on October 30, 2010


I don’t think I can remember the last Saturday morning I was able to spend sleeping in without an alarm and lounging around in my PJ’s. I am LOVING today! So far it’s been spent doing both of the above, enjoying some delicious coffee, (I love the reflection of the leaves) and a little baking. […]


Dinner at Lanie’s Cafe

by Courtney on October 25, 2010


It’s always nice to have something to look forward to after a long day of work…especially when it’s on a Monday! Knowing that I had a nice dinner out planned for this evening definitely seemed to make my Monday go a whole heck of a lot smoother. I think I just may have to plan […]
