Thoughtless Thursday

Cause Im a Maniac...MAAAANIAC

So I am on a roll lovelies! I have worked out everyday this week. I mean hard workouts (At least to moi).

Sunday - 2.73 mile run - Sprint for 60 seconds, walk for 60 seconds, sprint for 60 seconds, walk for 60 seconds, etc.
Monday- Shred & Biggest Loser Bootcamp
Tuesday - Shred & Biggest Loser Bootcamp
Wednesday - Shred Level 3
Thursday - Shred Level 3 & Bootcamp

I also downloaded myfitnesspal App on my iphone. I've heard so many great things about this app for tracking calories and calories burned and so far, it's! Super easy and a great eye opener. I need to work on upping my calories. I don't want to send my body in starvation mode.

Still packing (Insert barf sound effect here) this week. Today Im heading to the paint store with my mom to look at paint swatches and get some quotes. I believe next week we get the keys and get to start moving in. Then let the fun begin!!

Workout today - 30 Day Shred Level 3

So ladies. I must confess. I have been making this Taco Bake recipe I found on for a couple weeks now. I said "couple weeks" because it's a hit in the California Dreamin Casa. It's amazing. 'Nuff said.

what you need
1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
1 lb. ground beef - I modified this with EXTRA LEAN GROUND TURKEY
1-1/2 cups KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided - I MODIFIED USING LOW FAT & I ONLY USE ABOUT 3/4 CUP OF CHEESE
1 cup TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa

How to make it

HEAT oven to 400°F.

PREPARE Dinner as directed on package. While Macaroni is cooking, cook meat with taco seasoning as directed on package.

STIR sour cream into prepared Dinner; spoon half the Dinner mixture into 8-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Top with layers of meat mixture, 1 cup shredded cheese and remaining Dinner mixture; cover.

BAKE 15 min.; top with salsa and remaining shredded cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

I'm telling you girls, TRY IT! Your man will be VERY happy. Pair it with a salad, and VOILA! You got a good healthy(ish) meal!

Today I met a couple of mommies in my mommy group and had some lunch and went to see Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz.
Of course those are margaritas at noon. It was "Mommies Day Out". Time to celebrate

So my beef with Miss Diaz - I think she is a horrible actress. GASP! I know, I know, she makes some good chick flicks, but honestly the only movie I liked with her in it is The Sweetest Thing. Plus her appearance bugs me. I don't think she is this sexy little vixen that men say she is. Hubbs agrees with me on this one. It was a cute movie though. Some funny parts, but mostly the funny parts you can also see on the previews. I'd give it a 6/10. Personally, I don't recommend paying $10 a ticket to see it - wait till it's released on DVD. Unless your a die hard Cameron Diaz fan.

They see me rollin...

Workout Today - 30 day Shred & Biggest Loser Boot camp. Not having a gym sorta sucks, but I make it work.

My Monday has consisted of driving around Safeway's and Winco trying to find empty boxes. For some reason or other, I haven't found any but 2. TWO! When we moved from CA to NC, I got ALL my moving boxes from behind grocery stores. So I called it good after 2 and took my defeated butt home to use the two I had.

After having a photo shoot and a walk with T Money,

"And dis is meye serweus face"
"ha ha! Only kidding mama"
I headed back to la casa to clean. Speaking of "la casa", I cant stop driving by our soon to be house. Even though, I can't really see it from the road, I like to pretend I'm going home. This week I really need to get on he whole picking out the paint colors. That's the very first thing we're doing and if we are moving in in about 1.5 weeks, I need to put the pedle to the metal. In our bedroom right now we have 1 red wall that our bed is against, so I plan on doing the same in our new house.
Please excuse the unmade bed at 1:20 in the afternoon

I am also wanting to get a soft mocha color for Troy's room, and depending on the condition of the rest of the house ( I just can't remember the paint right now), I might get something similar for the rest of the house.

Hope ya'll are having a great day!

My infant is smarter than your honor student

Day of Rest? I Don't Think So!

Happy Sunday ladies! Started my day off with a pretty easy peasy 2.73 mile run according to Runkeeper app. I was surprised it was so easy since I am finishing up this cold (HALLELUJAH!) and I hadn't worked out all week. I was able to keep a steady running pace throughout the whole thing and only stopped to tie my shoes twice. I'm glad I went out and hit the pavement early before it got too hot. It's supposed to be 91 today. Not as bad as the 106 we had last week, so I'll take 91 with no problem. With grocery shopping out of the way (also done this morning), Nick, Troy and I will be heading up the hill to my parentals house for a BBQ before my sister leaves to North Carolina tonight. So pool/tan time for moi is in the cards, maybe some of this as well?

Who knows though. I drank last night with the girlies at dinner, and I'm really trying to cut calories where I can. So it may just be some mouth watering H20 for me today.

The dinner last night was SO much fun. Seriously, there is never a dull moment with those girls. We bounce from topic to topic and talk about the most random things, which is my kinda party. We've actually planned a old fashioned slumber party for next month like we used to do back in the days. I'm talking sleeping bags on the living room floor, 90's movies, pizza, adult beverages (of course that's not what we had back in the day, but we're of age now thanks very much).

Off to enjoy the sun, have a great Sunday!!

Hey ladies! Yeah, soooooo I'm still working the sexy frog voice with my cold. This friggin sucks! I want to workout, I want to feel good, I want to breathe through my nose. Ya know, the basic things in life. So I have been laying low and jacking myself up with Zicam and DayQuil. Oh and I've totally taken full advantage of this cold to eat soup & crap. Seriously, Nick brought me home 2 macadamia cookies from work (One of those babies was polished off as a pre breakfast appetizer with my coffee), and I had spaghetti (with white pasta...I know, the horror!) *I NEVER EAT WHITE PASTA. YA KNOW, THE WHOLE GOING TO WHOLE WHEAT CAUSE IT'S HEALTHIER, DEAL* So I really need to knock all that off.
So guess who is 5 months old today? Obviously I am talking about this little gangsta'

I feel like such a grown up. I have grown up things going on this weekend. Nick and I will be signing some MORE disclosures and forms for our new house (EEK!), then a trip to Home Depot to look at what else? Home stuff - new ceiling fans, maybe some rugs, looking at a new front door, that sorta stuff. Then later Saturday night I will be meeting these lovely girls for some dinner and adult beverages.

These ladies and I grew up together. From Elementary all through High School and we try to get together every other month or so.
Have a great Friday and weekend ladies! I hope to report I'm over my stupid cold come Monday

Oh Man!

So for some reason or other I have a cold. It started as a sore throat for the past 2 days, but now Im just feeling blah and I can't stop blowing my nose. But since ya'll don't wanna see a picture of moi with toilet paper up my nose, here is something a little more delish
Leo al la Titanic days

Please Pray for Her

I am taking this from Miss Life in the Fulmer Lane. This breaks my heart as a mom, I cannot even begin to imagine this feeling. Please visit the blog and pray for this baby girl...

Bachelorette Stuff

Okay lets talk Bachelotette - Ashley is STUPID. Honestly, I don't like her at all and this episode just sent it home for me how stupid she really is. So, they are all in Thailand. Ashley had a group date with a bunch of the guys doing Muay Tai. She thought it'd be a "bonding experience" and "fun". Okay Ashley, do you know ANYTHING about guys? Put them in the ring and they are competitive. Especially when there is a chick in front of them that they are trying to impress. THey aren't going to do little love taps. They are going to go for HUGE blows! Long story short - one of the guys, Ames, had NEVER been in a fight in his life. So he got worked. Oh and a concussion. Poor guy could barely focus once he got out of the hospital.

Oh and if I hear Ashley cry about Bentley 1 more time? I will FREAAAAAAAK. Get over him girl!

Weekend Recap

Workout: 30 minute run outside (1 minute sprint, 1 minute walk, 1 minute sprint, 1 minute walk, etc.) & Shred Level 2

So now that we've got that out of the way, how was your weekend?! I hope everyone had a FAB Fathers Day. I got to spend it with these 3 gents
Troy and Nick way back in the day

My dad and the best grandpa, holding his 1st and only grandson who was just an hour old at the time

After my morning run, I made Nick bfast, we went for a walk, and literally just layed around all day. Such a lazy day, but those are the best right? For din din we met the fam for some wings and burgers (salad for moi) at Buffalo Wild Wings. Sorta disappointed with the salad and service last night tho. Maybe I just wasn't feeling the salad and should have gone for something I REALLY wanted
But then I'd have to pull a Pippa Middleton and run 20 miles and bike 30

Lets Discuss, Shall We?

Okay girls, WTF is up with Kristen Cavallari? She just put out an interview complaining it was hard after she gained weight on The Hills. I mean, seriously Kristen - SHUT the frick up! You gained weight when you were on The Hills? Really, you looked fat in your bikini? I must have missed these pictures where she looked fat.
Was it this picture?

OOOOO or is this the one you were talking about?

Oh I found it, here is the fatty of all fat pictures

Sorry for the rant ladies, but it's kinda silly to me that these obviously GORGEOUS girls and in pretty bangin shape that my husband can only DREAM of me being, complain ***side note - just kidding on that last part - Nickmeister is quite pleased with ma' boda'y :) ***

Wordless Wednesday

Well Crap...

So today was the first time and last time I took Troy to the gym. It wasn't their fault, but come to find out they will charge me a FULL MEMBERSHIP just to bring my infant. What.the.EFF?! And since my hubbs works during the day, there really isn't anyone close by who can watch Troy while I run to the gym. Since we are most likely (still in escrow and don't wanna be counting chickens before they hatch) getting a house up the hill, I'm going to be going to a gym closer to home. So, I will be canceling my fancy shmancy gym membership at the end of the month and sticking to working out at home and running outside. One of the things that sucks is since it's getting so warm, I will be sweating a gallon a minute. So I'm going to have to reevaluate my workouts, but basically what Im going to be doing for awhile is the Shred and run about 3 miles my normal workout days.

In other Troy news, we have broken the needing the swaddle dealio. Boy was getting too big for it & he also has been rolling over and it made me nervous knowing he could roll over and if his arms weren't free, it just wouldn't be good.

Have a great evening ladies, I'm off to make some of this Taco Bake recipe

Weekend Review

Hey girls! So I've been a busy busy bee for sure which explains the lack of posts. So lets start with the house- We are currently in escrow on a house we LOVE and it couldn't be more perfect, so we've been trying hard not to get our hopes up until closing day :) It's been a lot of back and forth with our lender and underwriters and our realtor and the seller. But things are coming along, and if all goes well, by the end of this month, we should be homeowners, EEK! So excited. Tell me this garden isn't adorable?! My mamacita will have to show me how to do roses- I have NEVER gardened, but have always wanted a little garden

This weekend was my dear friend Lisa's wedding. I left Troy with Nick and got plenty of text pics of my little man being what he is good at being - ADORABLE! I missed them both so much. Call me lame, but I don't like being away from my hubbs for more than a night. It was so much fun being with just girls for the weekend though. I saw 2 of my really good friends that Lisa and I grew up with and crashed with them in their hotel room on Saturday night after the wedding. So much fun!

The Bride and I
She's gettin gorgeous
Me, Shannon, Lisa (the bride) and Lisa B.
3 of the 7 beautiful Bridesmaids: Emily, Becky (my twin), and I
Kristen, me, and Becky
All the bridesmaids and the bride poppin' a squat

I think I did a major number on my liver this weekend, so I will be skipping the adult beverages for oh say, a week or two. And I will be back at the gym :) I'm testing out the little daycare there while I workout.

Bachelorette BS

So lets discuss Mr. Bentley from the Bachelorette, shall we? What the heck is up with this dude?! All his smug comments on how he was never attracted to Ashley and how he was hoping it was going to be "the breaktaking Emily". All I have to say is thank God Emily wasn't the Bachelorette because if he was the douche he's being now to my St. Emily, I would really be upset.

So yeah, he told Ashley he's leaving and he left. He was PLAYING her! And she fell for it! I'm sorry, but this is showing that girls are so easy to play....okay, okay, sometimes we ARE puddy in guys hands, but this McDouchster was ridiclous. He was constantly teling the camera how he doesn't care about Ashley. Oh and the kicker? How he says at the end that he's gonna make Ashley cry, but he hopes his hair looks okay.

And whats up with him telling Ashley it was all his daughter that made him want to come home, when he told the cameras it has NOTHING to do with him missing his daughter. I can't wait till the reunion when we get to hear what Ashley says. OMG, and what the heck was up with the hornball hugging Ashley and saying they were in a perfect position to " start something"?! EWWWWW what a slime ball. Ugh, I want to get in the octagon with this mo fo.
On a side note - St. Emily is on the market again. Her and Bachelor Brad are dunzo. From what I hear, he had a MAYJA anger issue and it made her hesitant to move to Texas. I want HER to be on the next Bachelorette.

On another side note - I am really digging JP. He seems the most genuine and Im happy he got some one on one time with her
