Hmm… what would MK and Ashley do?

30 Jun

 Nous sommes tous beaux In other words we are all beautiful

              Today is the day, the most important pics of your high school career  SENIOR PICTURES! Yikes there are so many nerves going on. Our pictures are not clear till 5PM. Ahh, talk about dragging on time…Right? With all of this great motivation for morning workouts lately, we got up at 7 AM with the older sis, and totally killed another HIIT workout with our inspiring buddy Chalene Johnson.

Today’s workout was HIIT 15 along with P90X Ab Ripper X. Talk about intense! Whew, it was great 🙂

Lemon Water has always been a favorite morning regimen for us, but finally got put to good use this morning. Usually we add a sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper to give it a little more of a kick, and to clear out everything in the throat, but this morning just Fresh simple Lemon Water was all we needed. We just took our kiddie Vitamins, and cooled off with a glass of this while thinking what sounded ideal for breakfast. If you have never been one to know the benefits of Lemon Water, I looked it up this morning, along with some other popular trends I had been questioning like having a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar.

Benefits of Lemon Water:

**Lemon and water both have clarifying actions in your body. Both lemon and water help flush out toxins in your system. Your skin can’t look healthy if your body is holding onto toxins! When you get rid of toxic waste in your system, your skin will show it first! Your skin will be the first thing you notice cause it looks clear and not sallow and full of acne.**

**Lemon can help relieve many digestion problems when mixed with hot water. These include nausea, heartburn, constipation and parasites. It is even known to help relieve hiccups when consumed as a juice. Lemon juice acts as a liver tonic and helps you digest your food by helping your liver produce more bile.**

**Because of its high Vitamin C content, it is used to prevent and treat many infections, hasten wound healing, and diminish allergies. Lemon juice also relieves symptoms of asthma, tonsillitis, and sore throats.**

Info was found Here.

This morning I had real bad allergies, and this stuff totally cleared them out. No more sneezing or runny nose, gotta love it 😉

 Maple Coffee Oats are amazing, and if you haven’t tried them yet, YOU GOTTA! This time only a 1/3 cup of oats was used just so the addition of Cinna-Apples could be added.

 In the Mix:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup coffee
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/6 cup egg whites (1/2 of a third of egg whites)

*Blend in blender, then pour in pan


  • Maple Extract
  • Stevia

*Toppings include:

  • PB
  • Plain greek yogurt
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar-Free Syrup
  • Apple slices

 You remember how we were telling you about the clothing line we began designing, and what the brand would look like. Here is one of the designs I came up with for Cohitney.

 Our mom’s b-day is coming this Friday June 2nd, and Court and I are going to make her cake just like we’ve done the past couple of years. We love to come up with a theme, then pick a flavor, and create an awesome cake. But this year were kinda stumped. What kinda cake design/ Flavor should we go for?

Here are some pictures of cakes we have created:


The Bikini Cake!!

Classic Ice-Cream Cupcakes

Casino Gambling Machine

 Pretty soon it’s time to eat some lunch, then Start getting ready. The showers have already been taken, brows were plucked, and toenails painted. We’re getting some pictures together, and would love someday, if we could take some cute pictures together in fashionista skirts or dresses and pose like the wonderful MK&Ash.

This picture is totally one of our faves of them two!

>Update: Lunch was a tuna salad pita with frozen grapes(OMFG, taste like sorbet), and an Keebler Apple Sauce baked cookie.

  • 1 pita
  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 2 carrots
  • 5 grape tomatoes
  • spinach
  • 1 spoonful of plain greek yogurt
  • A ton of Spike to season

Serves 2

After lunch we got ready for pics, and that took some time considering we got the thickest hair known to man. Seriously it takes a lot of product and time to curl this head of hair.

My room is green, black, and white with the theme of peace and polka dots!

Here’s court taking all of our clothes out to the car, yay it was almost time to finally leave. lol

Before we left though, we had to load up on a snack to hold us over till dinner, so Jay Robb Protein bars came to the rescue.

**Verdict: These taste just like a real fudge brownie. They were so good, you could even call it dessert. What it really reminded me of though was little debbie cosmic brownies. Ahh to die for. Yum!

When we got to the Park for the pictures, the wind was blowing like Crazy!!! Not good, esp. when we had to fix our hair every two seconds. It all went well though, and we ended up finishing the whole thing in about an hour. The worst part just had to be wearing Fall clothes(jeans, long sleeves), when it is 90 degrees.

With such a heat wave, nothing sounded better than a cold Cherry Bomb, and rice pecan bread for dinner.

What a great combo it was 🙂 On top of the bread was PB, Plain greek yogurt, Apricot Preserves, coconut, and walnuts.

We finished the season of 90210 we were on last night, so that means a fresh season to start watching tonight. Yay, well Have a relaxing Summer day! You could even give someone a compliment, make their day, flash a smile.

See ya Tom-orr-aw! ~XOXO Cohitney♥♥♥

Yay a real Summer Day :)

I wanted to sleep more, but Court and I like the twins we are ended up meeting in the bathroom at the same time. She couldn’t sleep any longer too.

I’m walking on Sunshine

28 Apr

Tuesday 4/28 

Oats this mornin’ were a real caffeinated EYE Opener. lol We had KBwood’s Maple coffee Oats. And what a fabulous creation it was 🙂 Thanks girl!

Paired with Lipton Caramel Vanilla Truffle Tea 

Swirl it all together and voila! PURE DECADENT OATS 🙂 Who wouldn’t love coffee in their oats right? 


On the way to school, the sun was a shinin’, so we of course listened to “I’m walkin’ on sunshine”!

I enjoyed some random Camera fun while Court Drove the Tink mobile. 

 hahaha smile court your on camera!

 Yeah we have fun on the way to school!

 For a snack during third, the last and final Raw Crunch bar flavor was sampled “Cranberry.”

yum yum, seriously cannot get enough of these babies!

Court had the fabulous idea to marinade tofu with a mapley apple glaze, and then that sparked the idea for a refreshing fruit salad with raspberry Vinaigrette.

 In the mix:

-mixed greens
-diced strawberries
-dried apricots
-pumpkin seeds
-mapley tofu
-dried apple chips crumbled on top 🙂

 Our sides consisted of carrots with pb and April’s low carb bread mmmm.



Well today was a LONG “B” day! It was nothing but ACT prep all day. When we left school, the sun was still shinin’, and Court and I had jam session #2 for the day on the way home. It is the perfect way to turn that frown upside down lol. 🙂


Since the weather was so nice, we vetoed the gym and opted. for a good sweat session outdoors. Before we geared up we decided a mini snack was much needed. We planned to go for a run/walk around on the neighborhood trails, so we needed something to keep our muscles from getting cramps. That happens very easily in Colorado. It just so happened that a package was awaiting for us on the doorstep. Today’s special delivery was from Taste Nirvana. They sent us some of their fabulous coconut water to review. One bottle has only 5o calories and tons of potassium, just what we needed!

Verdict: I have tried coconut milk, but the water is AMAZING. This actually tasted like coconut, instead of like some weird water substance with artificial flavors. 

 Paired with our coconut water was half of a pb & j nanner!


Our run was such an awesome workout. I love the idea of switching up your workouts everyday, because it works different muscles and really make you sweat! This was our first outdoor run since winter and boy was it tough! The sun was shining, but the wind was blowing, and that is when it is the hardest. My lungs definitely got a workout! Our run was a little more than 30 min. and was 3 miles. When we got home we did some ab action and then stretched it out. It felt soo good! I cannot wait for more days like this.


 Whit and I have to get some rest and do a few practice tests before the ACT tomorrow, so we decided on something super quick and easy: split pea soup and a grilled ham and cheese pressed on the panini press w/out the butter.

 I ❤ carbs


Well I need to unplug early tonight because the biggest test in my high school career is tomorrow!

But first here is the QOD: What did you do to prepare yourself for the ACT?
