rain rain go away

10 Jun

I hope you all had a good weekend.  Yesterday ended up so nice out finally, we needed it!  I had a family party to go to and it was at an Italian restaurant (<–had to spell check that, haha).  You know what that means, I ate my body weight in bread pasta and drank way too many glasses of wine.


Thanks Katie for hosting

Marvelous is..finally getting my egg eating on friday morning, afternoon, and night. Oh how I missed you


Marvelous is..going to beach Saturday evening after a busy day at work.  Love it


Marvelous is..not that it is flooding outside again, and suppose to til wed.  BOO!  Atleast I got so fresh air Sat and Sun.


Marvelous is..my nieces finally going home and not sleeping over after a week, and waking me up 5x throughout the night.  Sleeping a lot in the near future.


Marvelous is..double chocolate waffles for breakfast Sunday. yum in my tum.


Marvelous is..seeing the movie Now you see me last night.  And by “seeing it” I mean I slept the entire movie.  The BF didn’t believe me when I said I wasn’t going to be able to stay awake lol


I am off to the gym finally, I hope I don’t get weird looks for wearing my rainboots just to walk into the gym. Lol

What makes me happy:  Six flags on Friday! wooo.I use to go literally every weekend during the summer but it got to be just to much.  Cannot wait.

What’s Marvelous in your Monday?

Are you a fan of roller coasters?


MiMM- Much needed relaxation

15 Apr

Happy Monday!  I hope all had a great weekend!  Mine was pretty relaxing and much needed!

Onto a MIMM thanks to Katie!


Marvelous is..all you can eat sushi! I ate 6, yes 6 rolls. Can I get a oink oink (lmao i really did just say that too)

 Marvelous is..getting my bake on with my favorite chicks! It was a really crappy day Friday so we made some of these cookies.  Then the 3 of us split the batch. YUM!

Marvelous is..my long lost love kombucha! Always feel so refreshing after I drink them, as long as none of the little stringyness touches my mouth.


Marvelous is..too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches this weekend.  Never gets old.


Marvelous is..this movie, I swear I am Gigi.


Marvelous is..pancakes!  I made them for the past 3 days.  Can’t get enough.  I been trying to switch up the kinds I make each day for the challenge!


Is it just me that will use the smallest spoonful of batter just to not waste it and make a tiny pancake? PS ignore my hot nails.

Marvelous is..dunkins iced tea!  I was not in the mood for coffee when I went on sunday (I know right) so I decided to broaden my horizon and get the iced tea.  I think the workers almost had a heart attack too.

Marvelous is.. running without having a constant runny nose.  Sorry is that’s TMI but you colder weather runners, do you know what I am talking about?! I won’t even have a stuffy nose but you bet it will be running on any runs, my poor sleeves.  With it being nice out I now enjoy runs runny nose free. HOLLA

What makes me happy: monthly dinner with the salon girls.  I made it a thing to go to the bar/restaurant next door and about 5 of us go after a busy Saturday.  It’s good to just let loose with them and talk since we barely can catch up during work.  We sometimes stay after and just drink all night but I am punishing myself until school ends not to drink because of my crappy grade I got lol.  Especially after my YOLO night, I need a break.

Whats marvelous about your Monday?

Do you like PB (or any nut butter) & J?  What kind of jelly?  Strawberry is my fav ❤

Do you like to have planned girls nights every few weeks?  If so what do you guys usually do?

Monday Shmonday

25 Feb

Hello everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Mine was pretty boring, I went out to a bar Friday night but I was a killjoy since I was dd and was getting annoyed at people. lol.  Then Saturday I skipped the gym because I was too tired from being such a partier the night before and Sunday I did a whole lot of nothing, was perfect.

It was however over 40 degrees all weekend, which means outside runs ! Friday I went out to do a short run, 10.5 miles later I was in my zone and totally missing outdoor runs.  Since I wore my old crappy shoes because they are the only ones that are water proof my legs were killing me so I treated myself.


Best thing ever. Check out my freaky partially webbed toe.  My friends all throughout HS made fun of me for it.  We’d go to the beach and they would tell me I had an advantage at swimming races lol

I been studying for my sociology test all day today.  Most boring class ever.  I did however come across this in my book.


Seriously, how many of these do you use?!? YRYOCC ?! I’d punch someone if they said that to me. Not gonna lie.

I made these delicious protein waffles this weekend.  Best thing! Not gonna lie though, one didn’t do it for me.  I had to have 2 and could of probably easily had 3. Either way, can’t wait to make again!


I started doing livefit today.  I will make a full post about that soon.  After wanting to try it for about a year now but I was to afraid to let go of my cardio for a whole month I finally gave it.  I do however do a 5-10 minute warmup on the elliptical and may do a run outside once a week if my body allows it, otherwise I am giving 100% to this program.  YAY.

I did also do Courtney’s Ab workout which felt great! I was to lazy and tired to go to the gym Sunday so I did a short 2.5 mile run outside again (couldn’t do longer, those sneakers killed me friday!) then came home and did this. Loved it.

Watching the Oscars were pretty boring to me, but I do however love to see what people wear. I think Amanda Seyfred’s dress was my top fav! Also, Jennifer Lawerence made me love her even more.


I just made some quinoa muffins for school for the week, love these things.  Duke isn’t a begging kind of a dog at all.


I am off to go back to the library to do some more of this.


Yes that is a caramel cawfeee.  I am starting to feel it.

What makes me happy: Will Ferrel Posts. Cracks me uppp.


Anyone else have some weird unique stuff about them like my freak toe?

Whose dress did you like the best at the Oscars?

Weekend Musings

29 Jan

Hope you all had a good weekend, mine was cold but a nice relaxing and quiet weekend.  Just what I needed!  Get ready for maddd pictures coming up of my lame weekend.


we ventured out in 20 degree weather to get some sunshine and DD, in costumes.


my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, not really. #loser #missmyschoolfriends


homemade peanutbutter


dinner with the fam & best sesame dressing ever.. seriously!


OH YEAH. you read that right 85 minutes. Coming from the girl who was just bitching last week that I can’t run more then 10 minutes.  Apparently studying for microbiology really makes the treadmill not such a dreadmill. #imsofunny


This beast crawled onto my mat as I’m in yoga class.  I’m not really scared of spiders, but don’t really enjoy them by my face as I’m in downward dog.


So wrong. So true. So funny

What makes me happy: when all my shows are new! best thing ever. I’m a big show person too I just started watching The Carrie Diaries, anyone else?! I’m also a 90210, OTH, Gossip Girl, The Good Wife, Suits, NCIS, Hawaii 5-0, The Hart of Dixie (a new fav, dk why im obsessed) and Survivor, which I am totally trying to go on even if I’d cry within minutes because no-one would want to be my friend hahah. 

Whats your favorite shows?! I always have room for new ones in my dvr! 😉

Marvelous is well this isnt totally marvelous, i tried 3 diff recipes this weekend of cookies and a muffin and they were all absolute fails. the cookies and even the muffins looked amazing but really lacked in taste. my niece is my little foodie and loves to help me in the kitchen, she licked the frosting and sprinkles off the cookies then took a bite (at this point i new the cookie sucked i wanted to see if shed like them) and puts it down and in sweetest way puts it down and says kt i dont want this anymore, i cracked up.
