Things I’m Loving

March 12, 2012

Hello from Colorado Springs! I hope you all had a great weekend, I sure did!

Sorry I was completely MIA, but I had no wifi service while I was in South Carolina for my friend’s wedding, and honestly, it was pretty nice! I had a great time just relaxing and hanging out with my friends. Yesterday was a pretty long day with my flights being delayed 3 and a half hours and then getting to our house in Colorado after midnight, but I’m glad to finally be here!

I’ll get a re-cap of the weekend, my long run and Best Body Bootcamp to you tomorrow, but I thought today I would leave you with my favorite things on pinterest! Haha don’t worry, I don’t spend TOO much time on the site. I just love sharing some of the things I see!



Love this


Germany, somewhere I’d love to go!

Happy… Half Birthday to me?

Avocado-Free Guacamole: for everyone who loves guacamole but wishes there were a lighter version without the avocado... now there is!

Asparagus guacamole from Chocolate Covered Katie! I love asparagus…

For easy pancake designs..... also for storing pancake batter so you can make only a few pancakes at a time. Brilliant!

All the pancake shapes I could make…


I’d also love to go to Philadelphia!



protein thin mints (making asap)

Yes, please.


I love this last quote. Sometimes the bad things come to remind us of all the amazing things we should be grateful for in our lives!

I am grateful for:

  • My family and how nice they are to fly me to CO to spend the week with them, or to take care of Neville!
  • My friends and the ability to travel all the way to SC to celebrate with some of them!
  • The fact that I can go to law school without working a job as well.
  • The fact that I can run, despite my stupid foot.
  • The Internet! and all the amazing ideas I get, people I stay connected with, and people that I meet through this blog! Thank you for reading!


What are you grateful for?

Where is somewhere that you’d love to visit?

    I’d love love lovvvvvve to go to Italy, but more realistic upcoming travel ventures may consist of a road trip to Vancouver, or just throughout BC..

      Haha yea I have to keep my travel plans realistic too! I’d love to see Vancouver, I bet it’s just gorgeous!

    I’m so grateful for so much it’s hard to choose! My amazing husband and the health of all those that I love takes the cake though! I’m also very grateful for this springtime weather though. 😉

    Gosh, I have so much in my life to be grateful for! Mostly though, I value that my family and myself are healthy as could be! I would love to visit Germany, as well!

      It does, I saw it on your pinterest page! And I agree, I love fun weekends but it’s nice to go back to a routine after.

    Those thin mint protein cookies look awesome!
    I am so thankful for my close family! And it’s not such a big deal, but I would love to go to New York one day!

    • March 12, 2012 9:56 pm

      New York is definitely a big deal! There are so many things to see and do you could go over and over and never have the same experience!

    The destroying obstacles one and the last quote are my FAV!! Totally awesome. Completely agree with the “if your dreams don’t scare you….” one too. LOVE!!

    Have fun in CO springs! My sister is moving to Denver, right this minute with her cute fam! I want to move there eventually….one day!
