WIAW…On The Go

WIAW…On The Go

Morning!! It’s Hump Day and we are half way through the week already. I’ve been a little MIA as I wanted to take the weekend and beginning of the week away from the computer. Keely was at my parents for the weekend and it was a nice little break for us all. I love spending everyday with my little munchkin but I think it’s good for her and I to get a little break from each other plus I know she LOVES being with Gaga & Papa! I think Hanker loved the undivided attention from his “momma” as well. I’ll give you a little glimpse of my weekend in tomorrow’s post for today, it’s all about linking up to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for a little WIAW session…

Peas and Crayons

Breakfast – egg scramble, strawberries, Thomas English Muffin – Cinnamon Vanilla (OMG, AMAZING) topped with Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter & Coffee with a little side of Beautiful Bombshell!!


Mid-Morning Snack – KindBar (half of it)


Lunch – (ON THE GO) Banana & Chocolate Muffin (made by my momma)


Dinner – Chicken & Pineapple BBQ Quesadilla & Salad


What was your favorite meal of the day?!?!

Side note: have you all heard the “new” John Legend song, it’s AWESOME!!

Good Morning, Friends! It’s FRIDAY…can I get a “heck ya!!”

I am linking up today to Heather @ Housewife Glamour for another addition of Friday Favorites. I have to be honest as it’s going to be a short & sweet post as I’ve got things to do…so let’s get to it…

Favorite Outfits

Grey Tee and a blazer

I must get a red blazer because this outfit is just too cute!! I love the cobalt purse as well. I was at TJ Maxx the other day and could’ve gone CRAY-CRAY in their purse section…where’s my money tree?!?!

stripes & army green

I will be wearing this outfit (or something similar) today!! I heart olive jeans!!

Favorite “Pin”

Books similar to Fifty Shades of Grey. Awesome list!!!!  I would read Collide Series after Crossfire. I like that besides "This Man Series" there really isn't much bdsm if any.  Haven't  read the Stark Trilogy yet...May have to add that to my list.

I found this “pin” the other day. I liked Fifty (loved Beautiful Bastard) so thinking it’s time to check out these fine reads!!

Favorite Idea for the Summer (w/Keely)

LOVE THIS!  daily summer activity chart!

I know we will be spending LOTS of time at the beach this summer plus we have My Gym once a week and will be starting a new play group but this is a super cute summer schedule for tots!!

Favorite Cuteness

cute bunnies

OMG, bunnies are so cute and I kinda want one…LOL

Favorite Quote

Although I'm passionately loyal. I'm ready to let go whoever is okay with letting me go.

Great quote for a Friday morning!! Cheers to the WEEKEND!! XOXO

Quote of the Day


A repeat because it’s so good!! XOXO

Go Green…It’s Earth Day

Go Green…It’s Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!! Someone once told me, go out and hug a tree on Earth Day because it’s kinda like the tree’s birthday…so that’s what I’ll be doing today…hugging trees and “toning up”. To celebrate Earth Day, I wanted to give you 5 ways to stay “green” today…

Twitter / Happy Earth Day! ...

1. Unplug appliances when you’re not using them – I try to do this as much as possible.

2. Wash your clothes in cold water…this is a MUST for me.

3. Make your own cleaning supplies – Pinterest is great for this one.

4. If you live close to work, bike or walk to work….perks about living in the city…walking to EVERYTHING!

5. Take shorter showers to reduce water usage.


Now onto my workouts for the week…join me!!

Keely is so lucky because the Easter Bunny left another basket at Gaga & Papa’s house. When my parents arrived, we had brunch and made our way to the beach. I have to say that it was the BEST Easter we’ve had over here.

This is SO true and can be so difficult as it could be your “closet friend” or a member of your own family but until you stop letting it control you, it will just keep happening. Always remember, YOU make your life what it is and YOU are amazing!!

Have an wonderful Monday and week and see you tomorrow for a little “tone-up Tuesday”. Cheers!! XOXO

Love - Carrie Bradshaw

Just a shot in the dark that you just might be the one I've been waiting for my whole life, so baby I'm alright. With just a kiss goodnight.

Well that’s all from me this week!! I hope you have an amazing weekend. Cheers!! XOXO

Thursday Thoughts….

Thursday Thoughts….

Happy TGIT to you all!! Today, I thought why not do a little Thursday Thoughts!!  It’s been some time since my last one and let me tell you…I got some THOUGHTS!! 🙂

1. Why did it snow on April 15th? This has been the longest winter I have ever seen.

2. I can’t believe Easter is on Sunday…where is this year going?!?!

3. How old is too old to join in on the Easter Egg Hunt?!?! I love finding chocolate eggs!!

4. Serious thought: why do people feel the need to blame others for situations that THEY have caused themselves? Two words: GROW UP (or three words: grow some balls).

5. What’s better than friends?!?! Well, besides your children and parents…NOTHING!! I heart my friends (and Keely and my parents…Bobby too)

6. Why do 2 year molars suck so much?!?! Keely is cutting three at once and usually doesn’t get bothered by teeth but these are sucking the life out of her…luckily she’s still sleeping but rather cranky which isn’t her style.

7. Random thought: I think I as a cat in my past life. That’s it!! 🙂

8. Lastly, I hope you all have a great Thursday and see you tomorrow for Friday Favorites!
