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 😉

Workout like an addict

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!

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 !

5.  Ava Anderson Non Toxic Products

Ava product for the body.

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?

Good Morning!

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!

crossfit fight gone bad

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. 

CF 32

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.

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!
