Tuesday’s Treats — and an early morning!

Tuesday’s Treats — and an early morning!

This week is Thanksgiving week!!! So the food based treats are flowing!   Breakfast at a greasy spoon Even though my break has technically begun, hubby’s hasn’t — but we had to get his car in for a estimate before the holidays kicked off for real.  That meant we had to wake up early and go one morning and today was that day.  We woke up super early and drove in for an estimate — only to be early and…

New sofa!

New sofa!

This week’s treat is one for the whole family to enjoy — A new Sofa!!   Hubby and I have been making the hodge podge of furniture leftover from college work for the past 8 years.  None of it matched.  None of it was super high quality — except a bold blue suede couch that was purchased brand new 10 years ago — on clearance.  That couch’s frame broke about 5 years ago — and we’ve had it rigged to…

Tuesday’s Treats — Tiramisu!

Tuesday’s Treats — Tiramisu!

This week’s treat is homemade Tiramisu from the Abs Diet Cookbook! Here’s the recipe: All I did was follow the instructions — omitting the raw egg yolk (because I didn’t want to die of Salmonella) and the raw egg whites (instead I used whipped cream! YUM!)   It was AMAZING tasting! Much better after a night or two — the longer it set, the yummier it became!   Other food type treats this week include: Dove Dark Chocolate with Almond…

Tuesday’s Treats — What treats??

Tuesday’s Treats — What treats??

  Happy Halloween All!   Though today is technically my “treat day” — I donated my day to make hundreds of Preschoolers’ day better!   So I’ll keep my post short and sweet!       How did your day go? Did you dress up for Halloween? What is your favorite way to treat yourself on a busy work day?

Tuesday’s Treats

Yesterday was a bad mood day.  For whatever reason, probably because I’m a week away from my period or because I was tired and run down for a Monday, I was just a crabby and mean lady! As I was doing normal chores — as I’m trying to keep a clean house — I grew resentful at the person who made the mess (poor sweet hubby).  He doesn’t really know when to pick up after himself — he’s swears he…

Tuesday’s Treats!

It’s 47 degrees here this morning!  That’s a treat in and of itself! To take advantage of it, I’m planning a few fun things for the day! Get moving Originally, I planned to run a few miles — but my Garmin died and needs to charge up first.  Looks like that’ll have to wait until later… maybe it’ll charge super fast and I can still go a bit later this morning (or later this week?) Last night’s Crossfit workout was…

Tuesday’s Treats — 10/10/17

Time with friends This week’s most favorite-est treat is going shopping with my friend!  We have to pick out gifts for a few of our mutual friends, so we’re taking an afternoon and making it happen.  I’m always so grateful for time with friends — as I feel that it helps me take off my Negative Nelly hat for a while.   It’s been really crummy here lately — as far as the weather goes — and something about life…

Tuesday’s treats — 10/3/17

How is it already October? Does anyone else feel ambushed by Fall? I just know that as soon as I start writing “10” for the month, I’ll look up and Christmas will be here.  Going to VOW to make the most of my October and this whole Fall season before it’s too late!  As much as I love winter and all the family fun that holidays bring, I just don’t want to rush it. This week’s treats are geared totally…

Tuesday’s Treats!

Tuesday’s Treats!

There’s no shortage of food related treats around my house this week: Zesty Ranch Cream Cheese dip Pumpkin muffins leftover donuts and even a few of those 100 calorie Wholly Guacamole packs floating around.   That means I’m going to need to really focus on my non-food related treats this week, otherwise it’ll be hard to balance my macros!     Knitting Cooler weather always makes me want to dig into a yarn craft.  I can knit and crochet with…

Tuesday’s treats! 9/19/17

Tuesday’s treats! 9/19/17

Pumpkins, Pumpkins– everywhere! This week’s treats are somewhat pumpkin themed, but not intentionally.  I’m trying to embrace fall even though the temperature outside says it’s still very much summer.  Can’t let 90 degree weather stop me from enjoying all things pumpkin spice! First treat is for my house — a new tablecloth. It’s a small investment (this was a $3 Walmart special!), but it certainly does the job of bringing the “fall feel” into my kitchen.   Pumpkin Muffins! Once…
