Well well friends, the snow has finally stopped so now we are dealing with the “aftermath” of the storm…. for some reason the county/state/whomever did not feel that our street needed any plowing thus far, so it’s pretty nasty out there with the 12″ plus that ended up falling! 😛

The Man is busy digging out the SUV so we can head for a quick grocery store trip, but I think it’s safe to say that Lady BMW, with her rear wheel drive, will not be going anywhere for quite some time haha.

But let’s rewind to earlier today, shall we?

After breakfast and some meal planning, I decided that it was a perfect day for one of my fave quick yoga routinesYoga Sculpt with Maura Barclay – really got my blood flowing since I was a wee bit tired today thanks to my 8am wake up call (eh hmmm we won’t go there ok?!)  I also did a quick ab routine with “love-him-or-hate-him” Kendall Hogan 😉

Then I was more than ready for a yummy lunch

We had plenty of leftover homemade chicken noodle soup so that was obviously on the menu 😉

And to go with I made a most intriguing sammich using White Sharp Cheddar + Pumpkin Buttah! 🙂

What does pumpkin buttah not make better, sheesh?!?! 😛

After some serious laundry & other household fun, I woke up sleeping beauty to get the cars cleaned off so we could head out to the store right nearby… def won’t be doing this week’s shopping at my normal “food spots” but I think I still put together a pretty good plan considering (such a food snob, this girl 😉 )

While Mr. Sleep-Forever-And-Then-Some cleaned off the cars, I whipped up a smoothie using this guy:

which I won in a giveaway a while back and had been meaning to try out 🙂   If you haven’t noticed, I’m not a big “smoothie” person – I like to chew?! – but I must say that this product may have swayed me a bit!!

Blended up half the packed with:

  • 1/2 banana
  • few frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk
  • ice

And voila!


Packed full of great things for my body AND delicious… I loved it!

And get this, I brought some out to Mr. Snow-shoveler-extraordinaire to see if I could get him to try some (hey, 50/50 chance I figured :P) and he immediately took me up on the offer (what??) and then proclaimed this to be “just like the smoothies from the store” (haha whatever that means)… I’m taking it as a good thing though?

Little did Mr. Man know that he just had a trick smoothie with (1) almond milk and (2) natural plant-based super food!!  I was (1) shocked and (2) thrilled at his reaction, so shhhh, don’t tell 🙂

Alright friends, well time to see how car dig-out 2010 is going and get on over to the store….

Don’t forget to enter the Chobani Giveaway too ya’ll – you have til this Friday!!!

Have a lovely Sunday friends 🙂

OMG I never thought I’d be so happy to see Thursday friends!!


Lucy Dog wants to know how everyone is doing today?!?!  Ruff-tastic hopefully 😉 

I know that today is going to be a good day since I just realized that only my favorite show ever ever ever premieres tonight (ummm how did I not know this til seriously 5 minutes ago?!)

OC5 Premiere

Grey’s Anatomy & Real Housewives tonight.  Yes please 🙂

On a side note, I am happy to report that my abs are still sore from Tuesday’s P90X Ab RipperX routine — I mean seriously, holy cow!  Def going to tackle that one again this weekend, love it  🙂

And as for all you fabulous friends who left such wonderful comments for The Man (which I read to him obvi, and I think he was blusing 😉 )— please know that both him & I truly appreciate all your well wishes for him yesterday — ya’ll are so sweet for realz!   He is still in some pain & taking meds (which is amusing) but besides that he is back to normal and off to work.  Yea, we’ll see how long that lasts 😛

So guess what happened again this morning…. yes, love at first bite!!


So how cool is this, after my life changing Chobani experience last night I happened to come across this fantastic giveaway over @The Actors Diet!  Go check it out and enter to win an assorted box of their flavors to try for yourself, seriously awesome 🙂

Check this, a girl in my training brought in this cookbook from the 1890’s for me to see, how cool?!?!  It was so fascinating to flip through this work of art, the pages were literally falling apart…. I was in heaven!

I thought that was just the sweetest thing that she would think of me to bring that in (they all know about the food blog obvi)… what a treasure!

Alright, so you probably want to see some lunch eats about now right?!  Yea, SO DO I!   It’s currently after noon and we were just told that lunch won’t be here for another 45 minutes…. cranky-fanatic much?! Usually they give us lunch at 11:20 (ridic) and now today almost 1pm… homie don’t play that.  So I’ll have to update ya’ll with how that turns out on tonight’s post I suppose.

Anywho, after work is going to most definitely be a Yoga night!  I need some Elise in my life 🙂

Dinner is going to be dependent on The Man’s mouth status and his ability to chew real food 🙁  This morning I got an email that went like this:

“Hahaha, cottage cheese and yogurt time!!!!! Whoop whoop”

… which I take to mean that solid foods aren’t an option quite yet 😉  But we shall see!

Have a wonderful day all of you, I can smell Friday right around the corner! 🙂
