Hello, blog world.  Between having Monday off and knowing I only have a half day on Friday before I leave to visit Jen, this week is flying by.  I’ve got lots to do between now and then, so let’s hop to it.  Time to discuss some things that I’ve been loving lately!

Favorite Things

Keurig + New Coffee Mug

My parents bought me a Keurig for Christmas this year, and I’m not sure how I ever lived without one before?  I love it!  I don’t use it everyday because my company offers free coffee at work, but it’s perfect for days where I’m working at home and on the weekends.  I remember being torn for a while whether to just get a regular ole coffee maker or the Keurig, but I’m so glad I got the Keurig because I would never need to make a whole pot of coffee – it would just go to waste.

Christmas Day:  Keurig

And an extra accessory I’ve been loving to go along with the Keurig, my new coffee mug that Tim’s grandmother got me for Christmas.  I needed one of these for my desk at work!

The Biggest Loser

I am seriously obsessed with this season of The Biggest Loser.  Between Jillian being back, the focus on fighting childhood obesity, all the talk about being accountable for your health, and Bob Harper’s Deck of Cards workout… I’m so hooked.  Plus, all the mentioning of worksite wellness is getting me fired up!

Nut Butter on Pancakes

The other day, Jen posted about the pancakes she made with Nutella on top.  Feeling inspired, on Monday I scarfed down a similar plate:  blueberry pancakes with Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter on top.  And also a dab of the maple syrup from Dakin Farms that Santa put in my stocking.  So so good.

New Old Navy Shirt

Last week, I totally took advantage of Old Navy’s 40% off their active line sale.  It was a little picked over, but I snagged this bright green long-sleeved GoDRY running top.  I love it and wish I grabbed it in other colors because it was seriously $8.  And it has the holes for my thumbs, which I’m a huge fan of.  Next time!

Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale

New beer discovery!  I ordered one of these Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ales while out to dinner at Amici on Federal Hill this past weekend with Slesh, Bridget, and the guys.  It’s quite possibly a new favorite!

P.S.  I am SO SORE this week… between the two Best Body Bootcamp workouts I’ve done so far this week and teaching Dynamax Bootcamp on Monday night, I’m definitely feeling it.  I’m psyched for a well-deserved rest day today!
