A Case of the Monday’s

A case of the Monday’s is actually one thing I DO NOT have today! I had an awesomely productive day today. It was filled with cardio class, meetings, yoga class and lots of planning. Some good stuff going on in my life right about now, lots to be excited about!

Here is what my Monday evening is shaping up to look like –


I enjoyed a lovely green drink in a fancy margarita glass.


It’s my own little version of Margarita Monday!


I also had a serious craving for cupcakes today, so I went to the store, bought a little box and now I can calm my craving!


Carrot cake cupcakes with butter cream icing. That’s how I roll.


I make cupcakes because they are easier to portion control! Got to keep Operation: Hot Bride going strong!


I enjoyed my green monster margarita and my carrot cupcake (not in the same sitting!) with a side of roses!


Don’t worry – they are Jackson approved!

Fiancé surprised me with roses because I have been dealing with some wedding stress lately. These last 2.5 months are going to be crazy with planning all the final details of the big day – it’s a lot to handle!


We are currently struggling with trying to pick out our wedding song – which is a lot harder than it sounds!


We both want something that isn’t obviously a wedding song, but its hard to discover a song like that. We are sorting through some soft and classic rock options along with a country song or too. We are having a hard time picking it out and we need to finalize one soon so we can schedule our dancing lessons!


Do you have any wedding song suggestions? What was your wedding song or what will it be? Any thoughts or suggestions will be appreciated!


Now I am off to cuddle up with this guy –


It’s Bachelor and Gossip Girl time!


Got Green?

I make green monsters look good! 🙂


This morning I started off my day with my new standard green juice mix – kale, apples, celery, cucumber – all the good stuff you saw in my Juicing 101 video.


I enjoy drinking my green monsters, juices and smoothies out of big fun glasses – check out the size of the wine glass I used today – It’s almost as big as my Vita-Mix!


Mmm…frothy and glorious!

No better way to start the day than with a big ‘ol green drink! I am sure Kris Carr would agree!


I was inspired by my big green beverage so I decided to have a little photo shoot with it ( I really just wanted to prance around the apartment holding the big wine glass at 7 in the morning…I felt fancy.)


I think we should replace the ‘Got Milk?’ adds with ‘Got Green?’


Let’s face it, we all need some more green in our lives!


Wouldn’t you agree?


I am off to start my week with some kickboxing, yoga and work!

Happy Green Drinking!


It’s (Bridal) Shower Time!

I am so excited because this weekend I picked up my mail and received invitations to TWO different bridal showers – both FOR ME!


I am so lucky to have such great people in my life. The first shower is in two weeks and that is in Virginia with family and friends down South.


The second show is in a month in Pennsylvania which is being given to me by Fiancé’s two aunts. I am so lucky to have 2 separate showers so my family and friends from both areas can be a part of celebrating with me.


This is how I feel about my two showers:


I am so excited for my showers in March I can barely contain myself! Getting the shower invites makes the fast approaching wedding so real.

(Side Note: Addresses and phone numbers covered up for privacy)


Is it March 12th and March 26th yet?!?


Was your weekend as exciting as mine?


Congrats to everyone running the Disney Princess Half Marathon today! I had a blast running it last year (and even RE-PR’d – to the second!) – it was a fun race with lots of pink, what’s not to love about that?

Favorite Things Friday

Favorite Things Fridayyyyyy time! My work schedule (and what I am doing for for my job) has completely changed for the better so I am currently operating at a little different schedule than normal. Lots of exciting things going on in my little world – can’t wait to fill you in on more!

But first things first – my favorite’s for the week!

I am loving my new notebook for work. I picked it up from Target- I love all the colors, it’s so festive and it makes me happy!


It’s from the French Bulldog line by Jackie Shapiro.


Next up is a little random, but I had to share. I recently picked up the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel and wand. I know some friends who have used it and had good experiences.


In Philly, our water is super hard so that leaves our toilet with gross rings around it all the time, no matter how much I clean it, they are always there! I have been using this gel for the past 2 weeks and it has been amazing!


You stick the gel that comes out of the wand in the toilet by the top and the gel works with each flush to keep the toilet bowl super clean. No more toilet rings in our apartment!

Might be a little random and off topic, but this thing totally works and it definitely earned a space as one of my favorite things for the week!


My latest hair care obsession is from the Wen line of hair care.  It is a  5-in-1 formula, that takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner.


It cleanses your hair without lathering and it doesn’t strip your hair and scalp of its natural oils. It feels like a lotion that you put on your hair. I am a serious lover of conditioners, I can’t get out of the shower without conditioning, but this bad boy really does work fabulously as a conditioner too!


Did I mention the scents are amazing? I have Pomegranate and Sweet Almond Mint. I sort of want to lick the bottles because they smell that good.

Happy hair makes me happy!


The newest book on my bookshelf this week is Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet: A Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight and Saving the Planet.


I ordered this book because I  was very interested in Alicia’s vegetarian options, I had heard great things about them!


Everything in the book looks very yummy!


And who doesn’t love Alicia Silverstone? She rocked it out in Clueless!


My last favorite thing for the week is my flower headband. I wore it all weekend in Vermont a few weeks ago and am obsessed. It has been the perfect weather for it too!


I own it in cream and grey. What a fabulous purchase from a mall kiosk!


What are some of your favorite things for the week?


This week I have a BONUS Favorite Things Friday for you! I usually share 5 things on Friday so consider this a little extra! 🙂

I was recently introduced to a pretty awesome online site – Ebates! Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online Cash Back Shopping. All you do is sign up (for free) and then shop online – Ebates has over 1,200 stores and coupons online and you get a % cash back for your entire purchase at each store.

It sounds like a scam, but I can attest that you actually get money for shopping – they will send you a check or you can transfer the $ to your paypal account. It is a pretty sweet deal! I believe you get $5 just for signing up too!
