Hey there lovely people!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I feel a little spoiled because the weather here is resembling spring, while those of you on the east coast are having to run in freezing temperatures. I took my furry friends out for a walk today and didn’t even have to wear a coat! Crazy… I know! I’ll stop now though before you east coasters officially start to hate me!
This weekend got off to a rocky start with lots of head pains that kept me on the couch and in pajamas for most of Friday. At least I had Bella to keep me company! (In case you’re wondering, the monkey is a neck pillow 🙂
Soup is usually always my go to food when I’m not feeling well, but I decided to take it up a notch this time and add some hemp hearts to my soup to up its nutritional value.
Friday evening I met up with my friend, Callie, for dinner and of course cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory. After dinner, we shared a piece of raspberry white chocolate cheesecake. YUM!
Then we headed over to the movie theater to see McFarland, USA. When a friend agrees to see a running movie even though they themselves don’t enjoy running, they are a good friend. If you haven’t seen this movie already, I’d definitely check it out!
On Saturday morning, I went on a baking rampage and made cake mix caramel chocolate chip cookies…
which I will be posting a recipe for later this week. They were delicious!
Then I made these Apple Oat Pre Workout Bars from Run, Eat, Repeat. I had one for breakfast yesterday morning and they were delicious! I forgot to take a photo of them once they were done baking, but you get the point with this pre baked photo.
I received this fun package from Lauryn at The Skinny Confidential on Saturday that was full of fun goodies I couldn’t wait to check out. (Aren’t her business cards adorable?!?!)
My favorite thing so far is this yummy smelling perfume. Isn’t the bottle adorable? I’ve worn it every day since I got it!
After mail time, I continued with my baking rampage at my aunt and uncles house for a Taken & Taken 2 movie marathon so the movies were fresh in our minds when we went to see Taken 3 in the theater on Sunday afternoon. I made these banana chocolate chip muffins with whipped peanut butter frosting and hemp hearts or coconut flakes on top for some of our movie treats.
On Sunday, I took my two favorite fluffy friends for a walk. Well actually they were beyond excited to go for a walk, so it was more like they were walking me! Between all the sniff stops we had to take every five seconds, that is!
I took a little bit of a break from my normal workout routine this weekend because my head has been bothering me a little so I decided to spend the weekend resting up a little.
On Sunday night, I met up with my mom, aunt and uncle for the grand finale of our Taken marathon. Eeeekkk! It was a good one! They definitely left it hanging at the end, so I have a feeling there’s a Taken 4 in the works!
I’m really excited for The Longest Ride, the newest Nicholas Sparks book turned movie to come out in April. I saw a preview for it and it looks like it’s going to be a good one! Plus, it’s about ponies and cowboys, so what’s not to like?!!? 🙂
