Weekending. . . surviving the cold

Hello there. Happy Monday. Smile 

I really really hope that it’s warmer there than it is in MN this morning. –11 when I headed to BODYPUMP and currently –6 as I drink my smoothie in front of the fire. . . .


This weekend was short and sweet. I had to work on Saturday and Sunday, but was able to sneak in a few treadmill runs and some fun in between.

Luke and I checked out a new juice place in town – WYSIWYG Juice Co.



OMG it was amazing. And this almond milk. the best I’ve ever had!


And I came home to this beautiful sight. . . I am super excited to start checking out some new to me performance elite products – starting with mass impact and arginine extreme. Spoiler alert – used them both this morning with pump and I definitely noticed a difference. . . full report after I’ve been using them for a few weeks.


Getting pictures at work of Scott and Luke running errands. . . seriously, who’s kid is that?!


And then rest of the weekend was spent like this. . . hot chocolate + Scandal <—newest obsession. SO good!!


And Sunday night was dinner with friends. . . no pictures, just a great time catching up, laughing and eating dessert pizza.

And that was my weekend. . .

I’m spending the day hanging out with this guy. . .


And getting ready for Florida! Thankfully, Luke packed himself and is ready to go! Winking smile 


Hope you had a great one. . . what were you up to? Please tell me it’s warmer where you are!

I am linking up with Katie (and Erin) for Marvelous in my Monday!

  1. Sounds like the perfect time to get away to Florida!! I miss my smoothies in the Winter, but I find myself favoring hot cocoa far more often 🙂 It’s a bit warmer here today than what you’re currently experiencing, but I wore 2 coats on our walk, so not much 😉 Hope you have a great week, Katie!

  2. Ahh how have you never jumped on the Scandal bandwagon until now!! SO GOOD. I almost wish I could watch the first few seasons over and NOT know what’s going to happen because they’re THAT good!

  5. It’s SO cold out and I am not okay with it 🙁 and I LOVE Scandal so much! I always feel the need to drink out of my biggest red wine glass while watching 😉

  7. Seriously, I have lived in the Midwest my whole life, but it is just too cold! I barely want to leave my house! I’m glad you got to enjoy hot chocolate, dessert pizza and Scandal!

    My mom and stepdad came for a visit this weekend and the girls had a birthday party last night where I got to meet a bunch of new neighbors.

  8. I’ve been trying to book my FL trip for this winter — I’m a little behind the eight ball on that one, but with the weather getting colder I’m feeling more motivated!
