Good morning!!!!! It’s SOOO cold outside! Nate said it was -2 out!

Recap of yesterday afternoon….

I can’t believe it was 2 degrees yesterday and today!! After cleaning and baking all day, I was pretty cooped up and wanted to get out of the house, but the roads were kind of bad so I didn’t want to travel down to Denver. So what do you do in Evergreen to get out of the house when it’s freezing out? Go to Starbucks, Home Depot and Wal-Mart.

mmmm…a Chai Tea Latte never tasted so good on such a blustery, cold Tuesday afternoon!


I saw a commercial a little while ago for Vaseline Spray&Go lotion–and ever since, I’ve wanted to try it! I have this weird thing that I hate putting on lotion, but then my skin turns dry and I kick myself not putting the stupid lotion on. So needless to say, when I saw this cool spray lotion, I had to try it! I’ll let you know how it works!

Of course when I go to Wal-mart, it’s like going to Target.. but not as bad…I can’t buy just one thing. Here are my fun purchases of the day! The spray lotion, a plastic mason jar water bottle kind-of thing…super cute, and “I lilac you” nail polish! It’s the little things in life that sometimes bring a smile to my face–especially on a cold day!:) New things!


Isn’t the nail polish a pretty color? And a fun name! Perfect for spring!


For dinner we made delicious Spaghetti Squash again! I guess the squash was on sale at the store–we have made a lot with squash lately, but it’s so good and it’s so good for you and it’s so easy to make! Much better than using pasta for Spaghetti!


And then it was time to catch up on recorded guilty pleasure Kim & Kourtney take on Miami and the remainder of the ACM’s that we fell asleep to the other night. Telli must have been cold after coming in from outside because all she wanted was to snuggle with her daddy….and when I say snuggle, I mean sit on his lap! 🙂 Love her….and him!


And now for the workout this morning…..


I did a circuit workout off of Jillian Michaels 30-day shred video! I like to mix it up between workouts I make for myself, and someone telling me what to do. Jillian is able to motivate me through the TV, I couldn’t even imagine having her in my face during a workout! I love this 30 minute shred, it’s a great circuit workout. I did 3 sets of — 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, 1 minute abs. And Jillian doesn’t let you break–which I love!

Well hope you all have a great day, and if your in line of this cold and crazy weather-stay safe and warm!

Next up–WIAW (What I ate Wednesday)

Finish the sentence: It is freezing outside, so I am going to……..

❤ God Bless


Good MONDAY morning!

I was so excited going to bed last night. After a fabulous weekend, Nate and I went to a new gym to checkout their fitness facility. We wanted to give it a try this morning to see how crowded it gets before purchasing a membership. Well we had full intentions of waking up early. Nate was up, ready to go! I on the other hand just wanted to sleep. I think I was too excited because I couldn’t fall asleep last night! Despite being in bed by 9:30, I remember looking at my clock at 2:38….

Needless to say… workout for me this morning, and I’m feeling pretty bummed about it..but I’m glad I was able to get an extra 1.5 hrs of sleep so I wasn’t completely exhausted all day….and all week!

I am running a little late so to get you caught up on the weekend, here is a photo post!

In reverse order:


For breakfast I made some eggs with leftover hash browns and a banana with Almond Butter! (Our first time buying it, and I must say it tastes pretty darn good!)


I made overnight oats last night for lunch today. I used the remaining peanut butter, so I gave the jar to Telli as a special treat to lick!

I think the peanut butter gave her a sugar high! She was crazy on the couch doing somersaults and just playing! She was pretty cute!


We tried another 1st! Spaghetti Squash! It was SOOO good, I don’t know if we will ever make regular pasta again! We mixed it with tomatoes, feta cheese, onion and garlic!


I took Telli to the dog park. She was pretty sad that there were no dogs to play with, but we were able to go for a short hike!

Telli girl LOVES the snow!


Nate made me a Chai Tea latte, and it was DELISH!!!


Telli loves to play with her ropes!


The guys at work ordered Pizza Hut for lunch on Saturday and ordered chocolate dippers along with it! I had never had any before and I must admit Chocolate covered breadsticks that you dip again in chocolate….mmm…mmmmm…good!


For lunch on Saturday I ate some delicious Minestrone soup!

I hope this post finds you well and you all have a better Monday morning start than I did. Time to get ready for work!
