Keurig Karma

  Never insult your favorite appliance on the internet. I have woken up to a broken Keurig machine. Although this specific Keurig machine has served me well for over seven years, to die on me first thing in the morning is cruel and can only be because I insulted it’s flashing blue light just a couple of […]

Birthday Dinner Preparations And Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday. I thought about sending him an Edible Arrangement knowing he would offer to share it with me but I decided not to go with a completely selfish birthday gift. I don’t even think he likes chocolate dipped fruit, or really any fruit besides an apple. Instead, I decided to prepare and host a […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Skinny Menus?

  I have a confession. Remember those Snackin’ Muffins from yesterday? Well, I kind of sort of gave one to my dad, AKA the pickiest eater alive….and purposely failed to mention that bananas were among the ingredients. He didn’t ask what was in them, which shocked me, yet I knew he would find out once he […]

Thinking Out Loud Link-Up With Running With Spoons!

  Happy Thursday! I am super excited this morning because Amanda decided to host a link up today to her Thursday “Thinking Out Loud” posts. I am always thinking something so this gives me the perfect opportunity to let you in on my thoughts of the moment. I know you are excited. Before we get […]

Frozen Yogurt Happy Hour

    How do you define happy hour? I am such a child, aren’t I?  I mean, most adults (is that what I am, an adult?) go for the hard stuff to unwind. My version of the hard stuff is actually soft. And frozen. Covered in hot fudge. I needed a happy hour last night. This week […]

Panera Bread Hot Chocolate With Chocolate Chip Marshmallows – A Tutorial

  Oh yes. Your computer screen is not deceiving you. That is indeed Panera Bread’s new hot chocolate topped with chocolate chip marshmallows. Looks like a serious dessert. It is. Let’s start at the beginning. I decided the other day that it just wouldn’t be right to sample such a unique form of a marshmallow […]

Peer Pressure, Cool and Can’t Buy Me Love

Would you consider yourself a leader or a follower? I think I would say I am more of a leader than a follower, yet really, I am more of the type of person who doesn’t care much about leading or following. I always have and always will do my own thing and not care what others […]

Possible Shin Splints, Uggs Slippers As Shoes And A Sweet Little Treat

Just because I haven’t mentioned my runs this week, certainly doesn’t mean they haven’t been happening. As you can see, my path is still very much under construction but I am slowly getting used to the new route that I created for myself. Slowly is the keyword here. My pace has been a bit off for easily the […]

Three Tip Tuesday- Hungry Girl

I have been spending a few extra dollars lately at Trader Joes. $2.99 more to be exact. See this vegetable tray? I have developed a new habit where I grab this tray when I walk into the store and snack my way through to check out and  continue the snacking during the car ride home. I have a […]

10 Mile Run, Famous Pizza and Slime

So yesterday morning I did something I rarely do on a random weekday – I ran 10 miles. My long run routine naturally fell on Saturday mornings because that was the day I had the most time to devote to a run lasting longer than 45- 60 minutes. Not to mention, when I first started incorporating the […]
