Sunday + Monday

Good Morning!  Sorry my posts have been a little sparse the past several days. Just not much to post about when I am laid up with my heating pad all weekend.

I’m not sure why I didn’t post yesterday, though. Here’s a quick recap of Sunday.


I made this breakfast casserole for everyone on Sunday morning.  It’s hashbrowns, eggs, canadian bacon, and spinach with cheddar cheese on top.  You pretty much throw everything in a baking dish and bake at 350 until the eggs are set and edges start to turn brown. I think I cooked ours around 45 minutes, then topped it with cheese and stuck it back in until the cheese was melted.

It was beautiful out, so we spent quite a bit of time outside.

Sunday evening we had family dinner with my Mom and Stepdad’s side and I cooked two whole chickens with potatoes and carrots.

I did one batch in the crockpot and one in the oven.  The crockpot batch was much better.  I’m bummed I forgot to get pictures.  My Mom brought green bean casserole and my sister brought dessert. It was a great evening.


Yesterday morning started with Title Boxing. Evidently I had some left over mascara on my eyes and when I got in my car to go home, I had black streaks running down my cheeks. Nice.


Love seeing the sunshine on my way home in the morning.

As soon as I got home, it was time to eat!  Oats with chocolate protein powder and a banana.

After getting everyone up and ready for the day, I had an appointment with one of our clients and then we did some furniture shopping for our downstairs.

First up though, lunch.  We ate at Yard House and I had a greek salad with sweet potato fries.  The fries came with a maple, bacon dipping sauce. Oh my, it was good for a couple of fries but way too sweet.  I just like plain sweet potato fries.


Our furniture shopping was a success and we’ll making a purchase very soon for some new stuff for our downstairs living room!

I finally received my iPhone cover I ordered over a week ago. I designed it at zazzle.com.  I wanted it to be something that reminded me of Justin and I and also made me smile every time I picked it up!

That is pretty much a picture of Justin and I in the form of frozen yogurt (in case you are new to the blog, I’m the one on the right!)

Neither of us felt like cooking last night, so we went for a quick meal out of the freezer. Dinner was coconut shrimp with sweet chili dipping sauce.

I know, not a veggie to be seen anywhere.  We baked them in the oven and they were super crispy and perfect.

I ended the evening with playing Words with Friends and watching The Voice. I can not get enough of that show!

Time to lace up my shoes for some steady state cardio!  See you tomorrow!


  1. Hi there, and I've done the black mascara tears before too... lol..even worse self tanner! Question for you - do you have anything pre-workout in the morning, or is your oats and protein the first meal of the day? Just curious


    1. No, I don't eat anything before morning cardio. I have tried eating before and I don't feel well. Two cups of coffee, that's it. I do eat before I lift weights though.

    2. Wow I have a new respect for you ! I would die without a little fuel - but I'm with you with coffee being fuel. And funny thing.....yesterday i was wearing new eye liner and went to a meeting and looked in the mirror later and it was half way down my face LOL - stop calling it waterproof when it's NOT! LOL

  2. YARDHOUSE!!! :) You went back! :)

    play words with friends w/ me! my user name is pinkpaintr
    and i LOVE your iphone cover, it is hilarious!

    1. Yes, I went back. Justin hadn't been there yet. I didn't know you played Words with Friends!
