weekly phone dump {january week three}

From left to right:
1.  Can this photo be any cuter??  Just little Bella waiting for me to throw her ball.  This is the ritual EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT...throw the ball, she brings it back, throw the ball, repeat a million times.
2.  Since I have been eating clean and mostly gluten free, I have felt so much better, and so does my tummy!!  I do eat Ezekiel bread that is made with sprouted wheat (not gluten free), but easy to digest.  I was craving PB&J, so I made toast (since I keep it in the freezer) and topped it with organic PNB and some of THIS that my mom sent to us.  YUMMERS!!
3.  Mike had a remote starter put in my truck.  Can I just say, I LOVE IT!!!  I didn't think I would need one, and didn't want to spend the $$ on it, but this is the BEST thing ever!!  Especially when you live in ND. He made sure to get me the best one (starts from a up to a mile away), so when I am shopping at Walmart, I start her up when I am getting ready to check out, and my truck is nice and toasty warm.
4.  I have been trying to get caught up at work for a while.  I was able to get most of my November scanning done on Saturday.  It is the most boring task EVER!!  But made me so happy that it is done!!  I think I might be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel soon!!
5.  Both pups got a long overdue bath on Saturday night.  Sophie likes getting a bath (that is why she is pictured, LOL!), Bella is not really a fan of the bathtub (so weird, since she loves to swim).
6.  I have been preoccupied with work and trying to get situated in our town house, that my mail pile has gotten out of control!!  Sunday I paid everything and filed it away.
7.  Sunday Selfie...I am visiting my kids in about a week, and while I am in AZ I am getting my haircut (I still have not found a place here).  I am ready to take the scissors to my hair...but I will wait to see my girlie Theresa!!
8.  I Made some more of my favorite snack, while Mike was watching his football game last night.  Recipe is HERE.
9.  The corner of my office is a HOT MESS!!  It is driving me CRA CRA!!  Next weekend, I am figuring out where to put this  junk stuff.

Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump ~ january week {two}

From left to right:
1.  Sometimes I just think my food is photo worthy.  One of my favorite snacks/lunch is plain Greek yogurt with berries, walnuts and a drizzle of raw honey.
2.  I am having the hardest time finding a sweater for Bella. This one was size large and said it could fit a German Shepherd (Bella is small, for a pittie, she only weighs 48 pounds, but she is like a body builder on top, LOL).  We are making it work, but it looks like she is wearing a half shirt, LOL!
3.  Mike and I went to the Japanese Steak House again, it is so yummy!!
4.  Saturday morning:  I did a little online shopping (I am seriously addicted to Amazon now), and then logged into work to try and get caught up on a few things.
5.  Walmart had my size in yoga pants (woo hoo) so I bought a few pairs and got some shirts.  I seriously live in this stuff~so comfy!!
6.  Just a Sunday morning selfie after I washed my hair.
7.  Even though it is freezing here in ND, I still enjoy my protein shake for breakfast.  Today was vanilla, strawberry and banana.
8.  I am slowly but surely getting things organized around here.  Sunday I tackled the coat closet and laundry closet (more pictures to come on that, hopefully).  Luckily I did a lot of purging while packing, so it is pretty much just organizing now.  I love THIS blog, and she is doing an organizing challenge, which helped get me motivated (want to play along?)
9.  Just some snuggle time with this snugly girl on Sunday afternoon.  Sophie is right next to me (not pictured).  I love my pups!!

Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump ~ January 2015 week {one}

Happy New Year!

From left to right:
1.  Just crazy Pete on some of the boxes in my office that still need to be unpacked (I have been super busy at work, so these have gone untouched and it is driving me CRAZY!).
2.  I lost the blade to my Ninja blender in the move, I have looked high and low for that thing and think I may have tossed it by mistake.  Luckily they make replacement parts!!  I have missed my protein shakes!!  I will probably find the other blade, now that I have purchased another, LOL!
3.  I am a list maker!  I just love them!  Groceries, things I want to get accomplished, to-do, work lists.  Crossing things off makes me even happier!
4.  Here is princess Soph, she loves sleeping on pillows.  She is so cute!
5.  Sunday the temp was -17 (with a wind chill of -29).  Mike was nice enough to come along with me to do the grocery shopping.  I am not going to lie, it was FRIGID!
6.  After our trip to Walmart, we warmed up with some cocoa.  Mike likes a lot of whipped cream in his.  
7.  These girls follow me everywhere.  I am lucky to work at home and this is pretty much where they are all day long.  Right next to my feet (notice Bella guarding her ball in her sleep).
8.  Mike and I finally upgraded our phones.  We both got the iPhone 6 Plus.  So far I am loving it!!  I think it will be really nice to use on my Project Life App!

Enjoy Today!

*Blog Update* 
I really want to get back to blogging on a more regular basis!!  I plan on making that happen once all the year end stuff is done at work and I get caught up.   
I sure do miss posting on a regular basis!

weekly photo dump ~ december {week four}


From left to right:
1. Bella trying out my new pillows for the family room sofa.  She approves!
2.  My vacuum bit the dust on Friday, so Mike got me a new one.  I am probably the only girl who gets excited for a new vacuum cleaner!!  I use them so much they only last me about a year.  Can you say OCD?
3.  My mom got me these slippers for Christmas, and they work AWESOME!  My feet stay toasty warm (my hands and feet are always cold, so if anyone has recommendations for warm gloves, I would love suggestions!!).
4.  I bought my 2015 planner, and this is just as exciting for me as (see #2).  I know, weird!
5.  My mom sent me hand and foot warmers a while back, and I decided to use them when Mike and I went out for dinner on Saturday night (see #6).  They worked great!
6.  Mike and I went out for dinner at Fuddrucker's on Saturday night (this is his dinner pictured, since I had already dug into mine, LOL!).
7.  I bought a new cookbook called "Against All Grain", I am trying to eliminate gluten from my diet, I made the Zucchini Bread on Sunday and it was YUMMY!  Mike even agreed.
8.  New creamer flavor (this is the one item that I allow myself that is not clean eating).
9.  It has gotten cold in North Dakota. brrr!

Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump ~ december week {three}

From left to right:
1.  Mike and I bought booties for the pups.  We tried them out on Bella (it was hilarious), I am hoping she gets used to them, especially since it hasn't even got cold here yet.
2.  My new favorite breakfast is overnight oatmeal.  It is super easy.  1/2 cup oatmeal (I use the old fashion oats), and 1/2 cup milk (I use coconut milk).  Put in a jar and refrigerate overnight, then I just put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds in the morning and add raisins and walnuts.
3.  I am so happy that I can find the items, I used to find in the grocery store in AZ, on Amazon (with free shipping~thank you Amazon Prime!!).  My Way Better chips arrived this week!
4.  Sophie was guarding her antler under her chin.  She always hides her stuff from Bella.
5.  I was up bright and early on Saturday morning.  Hello Coffee!
6.  All the trees/grass were covered in ice on Saturday, it was really pretty.  I guess that the humidity freezes to the grass and trees.  
7.  Here is one of the oil wells that is located right near out townhouse.  Mike explained the entire process to me, which was pretty interesting.
8.  Mike and I went out for breakfast on Saturday morning.  We were going to try to find another breakfast place to try, but after searching my Urbanspoon App, it looks like Grandma Sharon's is the only place that serves breakfast in Willistion (well, other than McDonald's).  I had GIANT pancakes, that were actually pretty yummy!!
9.  I had a visitor this week.  Flat Stanley, came to Willistion for a visit, I am wondering where he will travel next?

Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump ~ december week {two}

From left to right:
1.  The Walmart greeter is so nice, he gives out Twix bars.
2.  North Dakota was actually warmer than CT, but still colder than AZ.
3.  I am addicted to lip balm!!  I had to try this new flavor, and I liked the pink striped package!
4.  This is what main street in Williston looks like, it kinda reminds me of where I grew up.
5.  Mike and I went to a Japanese steak house for lunch on Saturday, it was really YUMMY!!  We had so much food, so we enjoyed it again for lunch on Sunday.
6.  This happens a few times a week.  Hot chocolate and TV.
7.  Mike bought me some new boots to take the dogs out.  They are not the most fashionable (and cost a small fortune), but they are AMAZINGLY warm and have great grip on the ice.  He always takes care of me. 
8.  Made a big batch of stuffed pepper soup for the week.  Recipe is HERE.
9.  This girl is two today.  Happy Birthday Sophie!!

Enjoy Today!
