Foodie Friday! ~ 3-Way Cookies

Chocolate_Chip_Cookies-stacked-580I’ve been busy prepping for Superbowl Sunday (Must.   Get off.   Pinterest.  NOW!!), and I’m feeling really behind….  Tomorrow will be my major day of cooking, baking, cleaning, decorating, and rearranging furniture….  So far, all that I have accomplished is grocery shopping and baking this batch of cookies!  Lucky, these are a no brainer for me though.  A tried, tested, and true fav that is the basic chocolate chip cookie…but with a 3-way twist.  Whip up a batch and enjoy them during your Superbowl weekend…or just because!  You never need a “REAL” reason to eat cookie dough!!

40-40-40-40 for February

Hey Lovelies!

Have I got a proposition for you!? And all it is going to require is a little bit of time and some muscle…for the next 28 days.

The 40-40-40-40 Challenge!


Yep….I’m excited, too.

Feeling Good in de Neighborhood!

So here’s the deal my friends.  Starting tomorrow, and for the next 28 glorious days, you need to do the following:

40 push ups

40 crunches/sit ups

40 air squats and

40 jumping jacks

You can do them however, wherever and whenever you like–all at once, during commercial breaks of your favourite reality show, half in the morning and half at bed time.  I have done mine at work in the past…though I do it when nobody is around.  I have also been known to do air squats while I wait for the kettle to boil….but I digress.

Wanna join me in my February call to action?  Tweet #40404040 to @PrincessRunners (and give me and Lins a follow while you are at it).  I hope to see a few of you rocking out your 40s this month!  Plus, what better month to do it than February?!  After all, it is only 28 days long!

Take care and Happy February Eve!

Friday Five

It’s that special time again ladies and gentlemen.  It is FRIDAY!  YAY!

Here’s a random list of the five things I’m loving/lusting after right now…..ready?  Here we go!

canvas1. This coin purse from Kate Spade…and yes, $48 USD plus tax, shipping and for us Canadians, duty, is a LOT for a coin purse..but it’s so flipping cute, no?

2.  The newest Bad Lip Reading in the NFL video and just in time for the Super Bowl!  The first time I watched it, I laughed so hard I cried.  The only bummer is that Adrian Peterson, my favourite Viking next to Aleksander Skarsgaard, doesn’t make an appearance like he did last year.

3. Red Lips. Nothing better to brighten up a dull, frozen January day (the last January day in fact) than a bold, bright, glossy red lip!  Kisses for all! Mwa!  The colour in the photo is Brave Red with a touch of Russian Red lip glass over top.



Still. Love. This. Photo.

Still. Love. This. Photo.

4. Being able to run again.  It’s only been five minutes at a time…and a slow five minutes at that…but holy heck does it feel good to move…almost as good as I felt when this picture was taken!  Oh and sorry not sorry for using this photo for the umpteenth time.  It just makes me so darn happy every time I see it.

5. True Detective.  It’s now part of my Sunday night ritual.  This show is so good (so far anyway) and very creepy and features some occult style crime.  The fact that it has Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, who are both rather good actors, definitely helps.  If you are faint of heart, however, you may wish to watch with the lights on!

What are you loving this week?  Let me know in the comments!
