Hopefully….it’s a payday for you!


If you have xm/sirius radio, you may know what i’m talking about. There is a morning show called the Morning Mashup (channel 20) and every Friday they say that and it always makes me smile because I know that in about 10 hours I’ll be starting my weekend and that’s the best feeling!

How is everyone doing on their brackets? I’m doing eh..but I’m happy BYU won and St. John’s didn’t, which means BYU v. Gonzanga aka I think BYU could go far!

Who are you rooting for?

Confession: I ate candy last night and didn’t realize till I woke up this am that I totally screwed up on my lenten challenge!

While watching the game last night I participated in the #wwchat tweet chat, and I’m so happy I did not only was everyone chatting super awesome but Chobani was participating and there were alot of people talking about how it was hard to find the amazing lemon and mango flavors they have and their customer service was fantastic, they told us to e-mail them and they’d help us out! I’m happy to report that I got a prompt e-mail response and I hoping they can help me locate the lemon and mango flavors around here!

I love companies that have great customer service via twitter, I think that makes their brand stand out, i’d rather buy something knowing that if something is wrong or I just want to praise their product I can via twitter and I know they’re listening!

❤ twitter

After work today I’m going to my first spin class at this new place and I am WAY too excited! I’ll def be blogging about the experience!

Happy Friday!!!

Live from Starbucks

I’m not going to lie, my title makes me feel like the female version of Anderson Cooper.

I had to make my way to starbucks because of the free petite treat deal…I mean come on who can pass on a birthday cake pop and a skinny vanilla latte…Not me.

P.S. You have till 5pm today to get your free petite treat 

I watched Morning Glory last night and I have to say it was your typical rom-com but it made me laugh so I was happy with it, my dad totally zonked out minute 5 of the movie.



I was able to sleep until 9am this morning, I was talking with a co-worker yesterday saying that I could only sleep till 7am but alas I made it to 9 which made me feel super refreshed.

I finally made it to the gym around noon, I explained to my mom how I found it to be quiet around that time, well I guess today was opposite day, it was jam packed!

I finished my first week of speed training. I’m not using any fancy schmancy training program, I’m actually using the C25k training plan but kicking it up major regarding speed. If anyone has any suggestions for better training plans feel free to share :). If you’re new to the running scene I highly suggest this training plan, it’s not overwhelming and it’s amazing how you feel after week one alone.

After the gym I spent my 10 minute car ride home thinking about what I wanted to eat for lunch, I was so close to going to subway but in a last minute decision I went straight home with the lovely idea of a panini!

The panini is stuffed with basil + red pepper grilled chicken, with zucchini and a slice of pepper jack cheese, I used Arnold something-grain for the bread. 

I paired the panini with a sodastream seltzer with a slice of lemon and my take on the farro salad I had last night. I made a chickpea salad with cucumbers and let it sit in some balsamic. 

The whole meal was delish if I do say so myself. 

I ❤ the weekends because it’s my time to relax, get a good workout, and to actually cook!

March Madness is upon us and BYU aka Jimmer Fredette aka hometown hero around here…is playing tonight and I think i’ll be going out to watch the game and down casually drink a blue moon 🙂

who are you rooting for during March Madness?

I for one am a HUGE Michigan State bball fan, so I’ll be rooting for them and good ol’ BYU because who doesn’t like boasting about the leading scorer, talked about on espn all the time, most likely player of the year who came from the next town over bball star…I mean come on you would too!

Any fun plans for your Saturday?!

Welp i’m off to do some actual work and sip on skinny vanilla latte…
