Staycation Time and What We’re Baking For Valentine’s Day

Staycation Time and What We’re Baking For Valentine’s Day


Happy Valentine’s Day!

I don’t even have any really great Valentine’s pictures to share, but here’s one from last year with pretty much the best card ever.

Ha ha ha.

We’re avoiding Target today at all costs, but this just makes me laugh.


I’ve been mixing up my morning workouts this week and practicing some of the new releases of KettleWorx.

I love the class formats because they’re about 30 minutes long and they mix up a lot of core work with cardio.

Here’s a good airplane plank with the opposite arm and opposite foot off the ground.

My hand is not that scary in real life. It’s scary, but not as bad as this picture. Just had to put that out there.


Here are some random things that have happened over the past few days.

I’ve been experimenting with a little egg white flatbread creation lately for breakfast.

2015-02-12 08.00.19 HDR2015-02-12 07.59.58

So far so good, but I need to get the recipe down before actually sharing it.


The other afternoon the boys finally got haircuts.

WE were really close to the Arctic Zero offices so we were fortunate enough to get a little special delivery.

2015-02-12 16.04.34

How awesome is that? Frozen goodness and haircuts all in one stop.

2015-02-12 16.26.25

Thursday night I had a reunion with the stairmaster at the gym after my spin class.

2015-02-12 18.45.452015-02-12 18.49.12

The other night I made homemade pizzas for dinner and we all ate leftovers the next night. I really need to be better about making dinners that give us leftovers. I rarely do. My leftovers went down a little like this.

2015-02-12 20.34.12

I’ve had a couple of really long days lately, but yesterday’s long day didn’t bother me because it’s now officially staycation time.

2015-02-11 09.23.18

Heck yes. I saw that bright blue sky yesterday morning and am so ready for this little week off it’s not even funny.

We celebrated Valentine’s Day last night with a date night. I found this cheap bubbly pink moscato at Trader Joe’s (I think).

2015-02-13 19.59.43

We paired it with a little take out on the couch and some Modern Family.

2015-02-13 20.04.39

It was perfection and we were sound asleep by 10 pm.

This morning I did a little incline walking on the treadmill and then hopped on the elliptical before heading out to teach boot camp.

2015-02-14 06.58.57

I did 40 minutes on each. I feel like the elliptical is a better workout. I do 3 minutes at a level 5 and then 2 minutes at a level 7. Just trying to get creative and make my own intervals. Ha.

I’m obsessed with this new Silk cashewmilk and just about two hours after I posted this picture on instagram, I went to Vons and found the unsweetened kind on sale.

2015-01-31 09.13.15-1

I saw this message on my phone this morning and can’t remember the last time I saw it.

2015-02-14 09.32.10

Not the temperature one, but the not having any events scheduled for tomorrow one. That is just so freaking exciting.

WE have no plans for tomorrow, but we do have a family Valentine’s party scheduled for tonight after church and some special baking and deliveries to do.

On the menu tonight is taco pie.


Heck yes I’m all about impressing the hubs tonight.

The baking that’s about to go down is some low fat red velvet cupcakes or some red velvet cookies.

The boys haven’t quite decided yet.

If we’re really motivated we’re making these NuttZo Doughtzel Balls too. Mmmmm hmm…

It’s been way too long.


Sky’s the Limit Blue is the Handful Bra color of the day.

2015-02-14 09.56.38

I’ve sported it from boot camp to the grocery store so far today.

I’ll save my new red one for church and our family party. He he.

So, I’m off to get a kick start on the staycation. I have a really long list of things to do just around the house to help me feel more organized and I’m getting really ambitious and hoping to get our taxes done. That would be a miracle.

Okay, I’m off to do a little baking.

There’s only a few more hours left to enter the Handful Bra GIVEAWAY and to use the code “loveyourself” for 10% off and free shipping!

    So funny, I saw your phone and the “I can’t remember the last time I saw this”, and I immediately thought you meant the temperature. It’s 5 degrees here, I can’t remember the last time I saw 68 either, hahaha! 😉

    The boyfriend is out of town, so my valentine’s day consists of hanging out with our dog, eating too many skittles and watching bad tv. It’s not so bad 😉

    I might make something red velvety for when he comes home though, if I haven’t died from skittles consumption.

    I’m planning on baking some banana bread muffins and possibly some no bake cookie dough truffles this weekend. I’m so excited to try them both out! I hope you enjoy your time off!

    I worked yesterday and came home to a Mango-Rita…..yum! Happy Sunday to you!

    Do the stair machines bother your hip at all? I use it frequently as cross training for running too, and I also have a hip issue ( chronic upslip). My injury is different, but just wondering if you are able to do stairs pain free?
