I feel like a post-a-holic today. What is this, my fourth post? …And it’s not even dinnertime! Goodness. I’m setting a PBF record! ūüėČ

Today has been dubbed “Sweet Day” at my work.

Aside from my red velvet cake brownies, other goodies that made it into the office today included doughnuts, chocolate chip cookies and a big bag of M&Ms (thankfully they were not peanut butter M&Ms or I would’ve been in trouble!).

In my old job, I was faced with delicious treats daily. It seemed like we would get an office email daily informing us about the latest delicious treat that could be found in the break room. In my current job, junk food usually only makes its way into the office once a week or so.

Do you encounter a lot of junk food at your work?

Do you have any tips for avoiding office food temptations?

Though I often enjoy whatever the treat of the day is in my current job, in my old job, where junk food was a daily (sometimes hourly) occurrence, I knew indulging constantly was not a good idea. I had a hard time resisting the food, but found that it was a lot easier when I had my own tasty (but healthy!) food to enjoy.

Today my office junk food indulgences included one of my red velvet brownies and half of a chocolate-filled doughnut that I split with a coworker. My sweet tooth was satisfied and I didn’t enter a sugar-coma. ūüôā

After the parade of sweets, it was time for lunch!

Today I had a big salad which included grilled chicken salad (made with sweet corn, portobello mushrooms, light Miracle Whip and dijon mustard) and canned beets.

It felt good to get some nutritious food in my belly after eating a couple of sugary treats.

Back to work!!!

Break Begins

I woke up today feeling icky. I guess my tummy ache decided to stick around for a bit.

My mom gave me some medicine and by mid morning I was feeling much better. It looks like my Thanksgiving break is officially on!

With my appetite back, I enjoyed a late breakfast of Honey Nut Cheerios with milk and blueberries before heading to a Jazzercise class with my mom and my sister, Leslie. My mom is a regular Jazzerciser and Leslie and I love to go with her when we get a chance. The music is fun and the aerobic workout is always entertaining.

The Ladies


We had a great time and worked up a nice sweat.

Afterward we¬†stopped off at T.J. Maxx¬†to find Leslie a planner for the upcoming year. Of course we left with some other fun purchases (namely black Paper Denim and Cloth skinny jeans for $25!). I felt bad that Ryan was hanging out at home alone (my dad is working today), so we swung by Dunkin’ Donuts to pick up a treat for him

Wanna know what Ryan’s favorite doughnut is? A glazed doughnut with pink icing and sprinkles. Manly, huh?

Needless to say he was quite excited for his surprise treat!

What a happy boy.

Our day’s plans include taking Sadie to the dog park

Sadie Girl!

…and dropping off our wedding contract at the Vinoy!!! It’s 100 percent official… we’re getting married at the end of October at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in St. Petersburg.


Hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday!

“This is like the Discovery Channel… for REAL!”

Our family fun day on the boat was jam-packed with wildlife!



We all felt like we were part of an episode on the Discovery Channel! It must be dolphin mating season or something because we saw so many and they were all extremely active. Hubba, hubba!

Flipper and friends were jumping out of the water and everything but my camera timing was subpar and I didn’t capture any of the amazing jumps. Ah well!

Next up on the wildlife tour…



Ahhh! Shark! We saw a hammerhead shark. Yikes! Luckily it was a little baby shark (smaller than Sadie), but we were still a little freaked (well me, my mom and sister were anyway… Ryan & my dad jumped in to try and snorkle with the man-killer).

Fortunately we all survived the shark encounter and enjoyed our time on Beer Can Island (the island where we anchored the boat and explored).

When we arrived back we made sandwiches, ate ice cream and even had some fresh doughnuts that I picked up after dropping my car off for an oil change.
