Brace Yourselves

by Courtney on September 11, 2012

I came across one of the best photos last night. After dinner, Jay and I were spending some QT on the couch…errr, actually, it was more like I was watching TV while he was browsing through his favorite site. I happened to glance over at one point, which turned out to be perfect timing because […]


Pumpkin Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

by Courtney on November 2, 2011


About a month ago, I was over at our friends Brian & Mal’s apartment for a Sunday afternoon of football, beer, Mal’s Chili, and friends. On this particular Sunday, Mal didn’t just make her chili; she also made a batch of Oatmeal Carmelita bars that totally knocked my socks off. Literally, they were just amazing, […]


I’m Back In The Game

by Courtney on January 7, 2011


I am very happy to report that I slept like a baby last night and did not need to get up once for a inhaler rescue! Waking up with a clear set of lungs is definitely a great way to set the day right. So I continued on the right foot, and footed it right […]


Waffle Sandwiches Are Heaven

Monday Morning. Has never been one of my favorite parts to the week, but I try my best to stay open minded to it. Usually, starting it off with a great workout is one way to battle those Monday Morning Blues. Too bad Monday morning’s workout never happened today… After three hits of the snooze […]

by Courtney on September 25, 2010


So how’s everybody’s Saturday going?? My Saturday turned out to be pretty fantastic, despite a less-than-stellar turnout for our garage sale today. Even though we only ended up making $15.00 (a full $100 LESS than yesterday!), we still have a way to get rid of almost ALL of our leftovers, thanks to Jay’s mom. Thank […]


Pumpkin Addicts Anonymous?

by Courtney on September 22, 2010


In honor of it being the official first day of FALL, I saw no other choice but to continue to incorporate some pumpkin into today’s mid-day meal. I may be lacking in variety today, but certainly not in flavor! My pumpkin-licious bowl includes: 3/4 cup 1% cottage cheese 1/2 cup pumpkin 1/4 cup (?) unsweetened […]


Nap Time, Please?

by Courtney on September 17, 2010

Can I get a WOOT WOOT for Friday?!?! I don’t know about you, but I’m doin’ my Happy Dance. source Unfortunately, a lack of preparation last night, meant for a pretty hectic morning. I hate when I do that to myself. Luckily, the day turned out to be much smoother than its start. Here’s some […]


Dear Pumpkin…

by Courtney on September 3, 2010


Oh Dear Pumpkin, I know you’ve been sitting so patiently in that lazy susan, just waiting for a little attention. Don’t you worry. Even though it’s been a while since we last met, it doesn’t mean that I have thought of you any less. But now, after long months of waiting, it is now time […]
