In A Tizzy

by Courtney on May 19, 2011

As I was buzzing around this morning throwing myself into a tizzy, I realized that there’s actually a couple things that I have been meaning to mention to you guys but just haven’t gotten around to it. First up…why am I in a tizzy and why did I mention this morning that I was packing? […]


Change of Plans

by Courtney on May 13, 2011


Well, after all my excitement for 5:00 to come yesterday, it turns out there was a change of plans. Jay got home a little late, we got some discouraging news from the IRS (aka, expected money not coming…), and then, our TV blew up… Not exactly how I was planning on spending my evening, to […]


A Hard Day’s Work

by Courtney on May 2, 2011


I’ll bet you can’t guess what I did all day today…mwahahaha. I’ll get to that in a second, but first, let’s talk lunch. I chomped on some carrots & hommus, alongside this fantastic sandwich. Last night while prepping dinner, I roasted up an extra batch of zucchini and yellow squash to have for during the […]

It’s All About the Cheese

by Courtney on September 28, 2010


Tonight, Jay and I have a fun, yummy dinner planned, but it doesn’t involve one stitch of veggies, so I wanted to make sure I could get in a good amount of ‘em at lunch. Celery + Carrot Sticks Paired with my favorite Tomato & Basil Hommus. I also prepared a simple turkey + veggie […]

by Courtney on September 26, 2010

Wow, where did my Sunday go??? Seriously! It’s now 8:45, and it’s the first I’ve been home since about 10:30 this morning. Sheesh. I started my Sunday off on the right foot by getting my bootayy to the gym for a good sweat sesh, which looked a little somethin’ like this: 30 minutes total body […]


Nerves On The Rise

by Courtney on September 23, 2010


This morning, I am now (once again) rushing around like a mad woman. I decided to forego a morning workout, and instead got a nice long extra hour of sleep. I’m so glad I got that extra hour, BUT, now my schedule is paying for it. Eeeek! Time to make this post QUICK! Breakfast Thanks […]
