Making a List


Heyyyyyy πŸ˜€ Holy macaroons!!! Keep those giveaway entries coming- the winner will be announced tomorrow AM.


That little sassafrass will never know the taste of a fresh macaroon. Sorry, Bell πŸ˜‰

This morning, I met up with my friends from work for a bootcamp class. It was such a blast! Reminded me a little too much of Shaun T.’s style… minus the hawtness, obviously.

After my workout, I was stoked for some Perfect Protein Pancakes.


(using Bob’s Red Mill GF Baking mix, Sun Warrior, the usual suspects, topped with almond butter and organic frozen blueberries)

Lunch was a la Bento Box:


Balsamic and hummus salad (aka the foodgasm face combo), TJs eggplant dip and zucchini, two slices of brown rice toast (not pictured) and two small apples (not pictured).

In Christmas shopping news, I’m finally making some headway.


I made a list.

When I say β€œlast minute”, I mean last minute. It’s a rush, really πŸ˜‰

Off to run some errands and a little bird told me the madre has fresh tamales for dinner. <3

See ya in the morning!



Today’s workout jam: β€œQuixote” by Bond (my favorite workout music group). To ROCK OUT any cardio or weights workout πŸ™‚

Something to read: A guest post on holiday workouts at I Made Dinner <3

    Your list is Gina Shorthand style..only you can decipher that one πŸ™‚ Good thing in case your recipients read your bloggie…they still have no idea what they’re getting!

    Bento Box…I have a pink one with purple compartments! I love that thing!

    And your protein pancakes, DO look perfect! yum! πŸ™‚

    She is so freaking adorable! How do you keep the staining out of her eye area? Do you use Angel Eyes?

    Off to enter the contest… πŸ™‚

    your list is so confusing!

  7. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on December 22, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    I love the Bento box!!!

    I think I can understand your list. I’m guessing it goes by family. Like “UE” is Uncle E and “AJ” is Aunt J and “A” and “C” are cousins?! Thats a TON of presents!

    I LOVE Tj’s eggplant spread!

  9. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on December 22, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    I love your reviews of different types of workouts. I always feel like I have tried them all but your reviews keep my mind open!

    I wish I would have remembered to ask for a Bento Box for Christmas!!! I want one so bad. Maybe I’ll just have to get one for myself πŸ™‚

    Have fun with your last minute shopping. Sometimes the challenge makes it more fun. My sisters, father and I always go out on a last minute excursion to shop for my mom (my dad isn’t the best shopper, so he’s made an annual event out of getting us to help him out in the end). We always have a blast beating the clock and fighting our way through the crowds. It’s like Black Friday all over again. The best part is taking some time out for a meal together. Make sure you get some good eats while your out.

    I am THE WORST PROCRASTINATOR when it comes to gift shopping. Each year around the Thanksgiving I vow that I won’t put it off and inevitably I am scrambling around the last few days before Christmas. Ahhh well. haha Good luck with the rest of your shopping! πŸ™‚

  21. Heather (Heather's Dish) on December 23, 2010 at 10:22 am

    oh, that song sounds awesome! i know what i’m downloading next πŸ™‚

  22. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on December 23, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    I still have some last minute gifts to buy too. You’re not the only one who leaves things til the last minute. πŸ˜‰

  23. Ali on December 23, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Any kind of last minute shopping makes me anxious, but I couldn’t imagine not even being started. You’re a brave soul πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
