House Dreaming

Woohoo for no work today!

Even though I didn’t have to wake up at 5:30 a.m. to hit the gym before work, Ryan and I did get a good workout in around 8 a.m.

Today’s workout went a lil’ somethin’ like this:

  • 15 min. warm up on the elliptical

Three sets of 15 reps of the following:

  • Leg extension
  • Prone leg curl
  • Leg press
  • Deadlifts
  • Incline bicep curls
  • Shoulder raises
  • Tricep extensions
  • Bridges
  • Crunches

After our workout, I ate a quick breakfast that included a juicy nectarine and a cheesy quesadilla prepared on a whole wheat tortilla.

It was a super-fast which was perfect since I wanted to get out the door quickly to join Ryan and Sadie on a walk.

We opped in the car with Sadie for our morning walk today to head to Winter Park to complete about 2 miles around a large lake. We like driving to new areas for our walks with the dog sometimes because it’s fun to explore different parts of Orlando and check out ridiculously huge houses we could never afford. 😀

For example…


Good news! They just knocked $200,000 off the asking price of this home, so this cozy cottage could be yours for only $2.3 million. Get it while it’s hot! 😉

Once we were done house dreaming, we headed home.

I prepared quite the unusual snack.

I made tofu yogurt pudding by combining half of a pack of Nasoya light firm tofu and 3/4 of a box of instant chocolate pudding mix in the food processor.

It was pretty strange, but oddly delicious! It’s definitely not a snack for everyone, but I downed my entire bowl and loved every bite. 😀

I’m off to change into my bathing suit and meet my friend Laurel for some pool time before I head to the mall to make some returns.

Happy Labor Day!

  1. I LOVED looking at houses around Orlando!

    Super jealous you can still go to the pool! I had to wear a long sleeve shirt on my walk with the dogs this morning! Have a great Labor Day!

  2. That house is gorgeous! 2.3 million that is not ALOT at all. Just kidding! Thats ridiculous!

    Pudding looks good have to try it out! =) Have a great labor day!

  3. Yea not too sure about that snack. LOL Although I do love the look of that house. Peter & I can easily swing 2.3 mil…now we can be neighbors! 😉 If only….

  4. That house is GORGEOUS!

  5. At least it’s 2.3 mil for a HOUSE. In NYC that gets you a nice two-bedroom apartment in a doorman building. Nutso!!

    That snack actually sounds pretty tasty!! Love me some tofu 🙂 Enjoy your day off!

  6. Maybe we can all pitch in and buy the house together. 😉

  7. That house is amazing!!! When we were in Naples, I loved looking at the real estate! Florida has some gorgeous houses!

  8. I wish I had a house like that, aah 🙂
    Enjoy your time in the pool, I would so enjoy some pool time now…

  9. Ah, that house looks so pretty.

    The pudding does look quite odd but it’s a very pretty color haha.

  10. Wow what a pretty house! True story, I was going to work out this morning too, but then I remembered my gym was closed on Labor Day…. so I slept in. Haha.

  11. We drive around and look at pretty houses all the time. It’s one of our fav activities!

  12. My husband and I love driving around in the really nice neighborhoods. There are some BEAUTIFUL homes out there! We’ll never have one like that, but it’s fun to pretend!

  13. I have an app on my i-phone that brings up all of the houses for sale in whatever neighborhood you’re in. I love doing it in ritzy neighborhoods– some of the house are amazing!! I did it when we were in Seattle a few weeks ago, and was in awe of some of the houses…and PRICES, ha!

  14. we drive to different neighborhoods to run and our favorite one to go in is the one with the million dollar an up homes. Its fun but depressing at the same time!

  15. nice house! i’ll totally go in on it with you guys, haha. yeah i have 2 million sitting around..psssh.

  16. I love looking at houses like that! You can dream, right?

  17. Wow, that house is expensive! We have some houses like that around here.

  18. Unless you have like 20 kids, why would anyone ever need a house that enormous!?!? They’re still fun to look at though. 😉

  19. I used to live in Celebration and I was amazed at the size of the houses! By the way I’m having a Barney Butter giveaway on my blog and I’d love for you to enter!

  20. I love House Dreaming! It cracks me up to think about how some people think that $2.3 million for a house is a bargain! LOL! 🙂 PS – That tofu pudding is quite the combo – I don’t think I am brave enough to try THAT. 😉

  21. Id kill for some pool action right now! Enjoy!

  22. that house is crazy cool! but yeah i doubt i’ll ever be living in a place like that… fun to look though!

  23. Man! House shopping can be so frustrating with how the house market is going right now. Everything is so expensive these days it’s ridiculous!! Have fun at the pool!

  24. i totally do the house dreaming thing…probably not the best idea for me, but it can be fun 🙂 enjoy the pool time!

  25. My husband and I loved to drive through WP when we lived in Orlando. Now we live by the beach and take turns ogling the beach houses we can’t afford 🙂

  26. Hey,
    lately I’ve had a lot of sweet tofu desserts. I usually blend tofu with banana and a tsp of cashew butter and a hint of sweetener…delicious and probably something one yould do with peanut butter too….I’ve only tried it with cocoa powder and that works great too.
    I figured that might also be something you’d like!

  27. […] something new! haha! i was inspired to make this after reading PBFingers‘ blog. this is basically just wheat tortilla, grated cheese plus diced tomatoes. i put them […]
