Friday has finally arrived

16 Apr

What a week ladies and possibly gents!

HW was out of hand, only one nap was taken, and senioritis is already kicking in a year early.  This final quarter is it, then we are free for three months! I swear teachers just love to pile on every last-minute assignment that they can, so a million projects and assignments were thrown at us this week. Last night after I finished my hand felt numb from writing so much. Apparently they don’t know kids want to get away from school when we come home. Well, it is official, we can say week two of school is crossed off, let the countdown continue. 🙂 Our go to breakfast this morning, was a Cinnamon Roll Breakfast cookie.

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup of oats
  •  1 tsp of Vanilla Whey protein
  • 1 tsp of chia
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tbs of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 2 chopped walnuts
  • 1 chopped pitted date
  • 2 tbs of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 pkt of stevia

*refrigerate overnight*

 

Then, in the morning you top with the icing! 

 -Icing-

  • A few spoonfuls of Cinnamon roll yogurt
  • 1 tsp of reduced fat cream cheese
  • Drizzle of agave

**Heat in microwave for 30 sec, then whisk**

 Then even more cinnamon♥

 And to go with this lovely we made a cinnamon dolce latte:

  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of hot water
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnut coffee
  • 1 pkt of stevia
  • 1 tbs of fat-free Cinnamon vanilla creamer
  • 1/2 tbs of cappuccino mix

~Fun Fact Friday~

Has anyone ever watched the movie Max Keeble’s Big move? Well if you have, do you recall Robe boy? His robe wearing obsession is just like Courtney and I lol.

 Every morning we wear our robes, and even if the house is freezing, we will wear them all day. No one else in our family does this but us, and they all joke about it. lol We wear our robes in the morning, when its cold, and right out of the shower until we go to bed.

Mine is this Green one

 And Court’s is this Red one

 Along with our Robes, we are the Slipper Queens. Comfy is the key when you’re at home. So we both have a pair of cute little slipper boots!

For lunch today, we met up with our Mom and Chick-fil-a for a Chargrilled and Cookie Parfait, and now the rest of the day is all ours. What to do what to do 😉

I’m really thinking about experimenting with bar making this weekend, because Court and I have got some good recipes up our sleeves. There could possibly be a good giveaway next week, so be on the lookout. But speaking of giveaways, you still have till Sunday evening to enter our Chobani Giveaway.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

XOXO Whit & Court♥

So its sunday…

22 Mar

SUNDAY

Since we got to bed so late last night, Court and I decided to wake up 15 min early to prep lunch, and make our breakfast. We usually do that stuff the night before, but there was just no time. Edward Cullen and Jacob black stole our time. lol That movie was so freakin good.  We both agreed we liked it way more than the first one. And we heard that the next one comes out in June or July. Right now the movie we are most looking forward to though is The Last Song. It looks so cute! Anything Nicholas Sparks writes has to be good=)

 Breakfast: Court and Whit’s Classic Go to Oats

  • 1 pkt of Quaker Instant Brown Sugar Oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup of Light Vanilla soy milk, 1/3 water
  • Mash half banana in oats, other half sliced on top
  • 4 crushed Walnuts
  • Drizzle of Honey

 

Lunch:

  • humus bell pepper sandwich on Flax seed bread
  • Strawberries/Peaches
  • 1 Pecan bar out of two pack

For some reason we were sent on break at 10:30AM! Not good, that meant we were gonna be super hungry when we got off of work at 3:30PM which we were.

When we got home from work, we threw together a yogurt parfait, and looked at the ads in the newspaper today. That is always relaxing on Sundays. After that we layed around in my room(Whit) and watched 16 and pregnant on MTV.

When dinner was finally ready, we ate Pork Tenderloin, Brown rice, and Carrots.

Dessert was a thrown together idea with some leftover B-day cake, and Banana soft serve. It was a delicious and perfect pairing.

There is so much to look forward to this week:

  • “A” week, only two long school days
  • last week till Spring Break
  • the start of month 2 of Insanity

What do you have to look forward to this week?
