Hurricane Ida-who?!

Happppy humppppday 🙂

First things first, I must give a major shout out and sincere thank you to all those individuals who have and are serving in our military.  Even though many of us have the day off work, we must remember that this day is meant for remembrance of all those who have served to protect us & our country.

I will say that this day off is a much welcomed mid-week break however, even though Hurricane Ida decided to put a major rain on my parade….


We’re supposed to get 3-7″ of rain over the next 24 hours, 15-25 mph winds and a flood watch is in effect.  Needless to say I don’t think I’ll be spending much of today outside – grrrr rainnnnn!!!

So I trekked to the gym this morning for one of my fave classes ever – Cardio3!  One hour of pure cardio, different routines are built upon and repeated for a fantastic all over body workout.  Love love love.  Also, the instructor that we had today is like my fave lady evah, she is NUTSSSSSSSSS and I adore it 🙂

When I got home I started on the crockpot adventure for tonight’s dinner.  I have to admit I was a bit nervous bc I have never done anything like this before…..


More to come on that later….. 😉

Lunch included some leftover stir fry from last night yummm.  I had worked up quite the appetite at Cardio class!


And since I ate all the carrot/pear/raisin bread already (yea, that happened haha) I had to find another form of dessert obvi 🙂

Laura’s red velvet cupcakes stored in the freezer to the rescue!


No, I didn’t eat 3… although I may have secretly wanted too bc they are just sooooooo good!

Lovin’ having my lunch at home today.  It is pourrringggggggggggg out there p.s. gahhhh sounds like some is dumping buckets of water on our sky lights!

Before I get outta here, wanted to send a shout out over to Bonnie @Salad Craze for passing along this guy


Thanks so much Bonnie!  I’ll refer you friends to when I filled this Q&A a few weeks back 🙂 

 Alrighty, gotta run.  Not much planned today besides relaxing and probably some reading/napping.  May go out to get some new glasses (woah exciting, I know) but that’s about it.  I’m really taking this “day off” thing seriously peeps 😉

Dinner tonight will include more of the crockpot chicken action + butternut squash (first time too!) 🙂  See you friends soon!
