Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!
I had a pretty relaxing weekend, how about you guys? Nothing too crazy happened except for I watched a lot of Breaking Bad. I have to admit I have been a blog slacker lately, and I am blaming it on my new obsession with that show! My husband and I are catching up on Netflix and we are on Season 3! We watch at least one episode per night (sometimes up to 3 or 4!) so if I miss a day of blogging that is why! We have the new seasons on DVR for when we are all caught up.
1. Because of my new obsession I saw this fun game on a “Blood Sweat and Cheers”. What a great way to spend a Sunday night….I could have some really sweaty, or drunk nights if I played this throughout all the seasons on Netflix 😉
2. My sister-in-law just announced recently that her and my brother are expecting their first child!! Yay, I am going to be an aunt!
3. Sarah Kay Hoffman aka: A gutsy girl has a fun Summer eats, treats & dessert ebook that is now available for purchase. The good news is that as a very special bonus, she is giving a complimentary sample (1.5 ounces) of my brand new nut butters to anyone who purchases the ebook!
I jumped right on this deal! All of her recipes in the book are soy, gluten, and grain free! Many of them are dairy, egg, and sugar free as well. I can’t wait to receive mine in the mail.
If you would like to purchase the ebook, it only costs ($6.99)
If you would like to purchase the ebook and have one (1) complimentary nut butter sent to you it is only ($10.99)
If you would like to purchase the ebook and have two (2) complimentary nut butters sent to you it is only ($11.99)
Jump on this deal 🙂
4. Nikki’s Coconut Butter is having their one year anniversary sale! Save 10% on 2 or more jars by entering the code “oneyear” at checkout! PS. Today is the last day to save so hurry up and order !
I get an itchy rash type thing on my legs, and it is usually after I shave. The dermatologist has classified it as “folliculitis- or inflammation of the hair follicle. This has been going on for years and I always have to buy expensive lotions, only use disposable razors a couple of times and get shaving cream for sensitive skin.
The most recent product I have tried and LOVE is the Ava Anderson hand and body lotion. This stuff is the bomb!
The ingredients are awesome too. Here are some of them: organic aloe vera gel, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, sweet almond oil, etc etc.
I hope you try some of these fun finds 🙂
Do you watch Breaking Bad?
On Friday Eric’s Nanny and Papa gave us some oranges and grapefruit straight from Florida!
I had one of the oranges with my breakfast:
I also started my morning off right with a hard core crossfit workout!
This WOD was very deceiving!
The numbers stand for the weight for guys and girls so the Wall Balls are 20# for guys and 14# for girls.
24″ and 20″ is the height of the box for the box jumps.
My total was 200 RX. RX= As prescribed
Crossfit is the type of workout that you hate during the WOD, but you love it after!
You feel like you might die during that 15-30 minutes or however long the WOD is, but after I am always glad I did it!
After crossfit I took my mom to Bonbonerie for birthday lunch.
We each got our own pot of hot tea with cute little tea cups.
I got Jocelyn’s Quiche du Jour: Spinach & Asiago (my favorite dish from there) with a side salad.
Mom got The BonBonerie’s Famous Tea Lunch:
(Assorted finger sandwiches are served with a cup of soup or fresh fruit and a BonBonerie pastry)
It was all so amazing. Then we went to the bakery to get some sweets to take home 🙂
I got an Opera cream cupcake for Alec, a lemon square, a white chocolate macadamia brownie, and a blueberry tort!! WOW.
Also another Quiche to make for breakfast or lunch.
Trader Joe’s came next. I am in LOVE with TJ’s!
These are some of my favorite items that I got:
Crunchy Almond Butter
I’ll be out of this in about a week!
Mixed Nuts and Organic High Fiber O’s (Great for topping overnite oats to keep me full longer!)
Organic Chicken Broth and Coconut Milk
Hummus Dressing and Ready to Eat Edamama
I love ready to eat edamame just for snacking, or to put on salads. And I can’t wait to try this dressing!
Organic Coconut Oil and Sea Salt
Plus a few other things 🙂
Dinner was Wildtree Chicken Fajitas
Mine was more like a fajita burrito since I used a low carb wrap.
Fajita veggies, lettuce, cheese, tomato, avocado
And then a Pear Chobani. I love this new flavor!
Hope you had a great weekend!
