Surprise Valentine

Hey hey all! How’s your Saturday morning going so far? How about your Friday night?

Mine was pretty awesome!




More on that in a bit 😉

Woke up and had my new obsession:






Cooked like the last batch, it amazed.

Worked until about 11:00, and then came home, did a little cleaning, and nommed on a different sort of wrap:



With the innards being leftovers – squashed acorn squash, black beans, sea salt.


And a couple of these may or may not have been consumed.

I had to be at the gym I’ll be training at to get some more paper work done around noon, so after playing with the pets watching the pets play with themselves, I headed back out (into the snow storm we were having) and headed to the gym.




LOVE the gym I’ll be training clients. All of the equipment is super new, and there aren’t several treadmills out of commission like the gym I’m a member at does. After getting put into the system, I stayed for about an hour to check out all the equipment to make sure I knew what each machine did and how to adjust them. That’d be super embarrassing if I was training a client and didn’t know how to adjust a seat for her, no?

When leaving, I found out my car was dead, and thankfully the owner helped me out. He had a jumper box (don’t know what you call it?) and it started it right up! *phew!* I had a movie to go to with some girlfriends (Dear John!) and I wanted to shower and get ready beforehand.

So I finally got home, pulled in the drive, clicked the garage door clicker, but garage door no go up. Sad face. Apparently the snow storm made thousands of homes go without power. Luckily, I only had a half hour until Shane got home from work, so I chilled in my car (with the radio and engine on this time ;-)) until he got home with the key. And coincidentally he arrived home just as the power decided to turn back on! 😀

Scarffed down a post-workout snack of veggies and hummus:



Showered, dressed, and shortly after my ride was there to take me to the movie. The movie was AWESOME. I had read the book a couple summers ago, and loved it. However, usually movies NEVER live up to the movie that plays in my head when I read. But this one did a very good job. Besides, Channing Tatum is downright gorgeous. It should be illegal. Gah.

Two and a half hours, one bag of home-popped popcorn, and 5 tissues later, I got back home around 7:00 to this on the counter!



Next weekend we won’t be able to celebrate Valentine’s day, so the hubski decided to surprise me with an early celebration!



One of our anniversary wines.



My favorite Pinot Noir EVER. I drank half the bottle. And now I have a headache…oops!

I did, however, get home too late for the reservations he made at my favorite restaurant, so instead, we popped in a couple Amy’s pizza’s –

Spinach pesto and cheese and tomato:

Just as good! Well..maybe not, haha. But still fun! 😀

We finished off the celebration with some Wii bowling and Big Bang Theory watching, and just stayed in on the cold, windy, snowy night.

Woke up this morning, albeit a bit hungover, and had a yummy, stabilizing breakfast!



Weird looking happy face 😀 Millet toast w/ Earth balance and cinnamon on one piece, and Barney Butter (!!!) on the other:


Oh we meet again, you delicious butter, you.

I gotta get outta here because I have a super busy one today!!

-long run (5 miles)

-food shopping for the big game tomorrow 😀

-driving into my hometown for my friend’s two-year old’s birthday and hopefully having time to help Destiny’s mom move into her new house

-come back in time for the hubski to get to a groomsmen’s dinner

-cook for tomorrow!

Phew! That’s a lotta to-do’s! Better get started 😀


What are you doing for Valentine’s Day this year, if anything?

  1. That’s so cute of your husband!!! Sorry about all the dificulties you had!! Wine always makes up for any problem I find!

  2. I LOVE your sectional! How stylish!
    Not sure what our Valentine’s plans are this year. We haven’t gone out on the actual ‘big night’ since our first year together. Maybe Zak will sweep me off my feet with a surprise this year, who knows! 🙂
    Have a great day! I am off to try yoatgurt.

  3. We don’t do holidays, so probably nothing special. When do you start training, like do people just get assigned or do you have to promote yourself? (I don’t know how personal training works) That’s exciting that you’re getting started!

  4. We are running the Mercedes Marathon on Valentine’s Day, should be a great one to remember!


  5. “had a yummy, stabilizing breakfast!”–
    Mine used to come at 4am, waffle house or ihop. Seriously. You did well to wait til morning and in your own house.

    Love pinot too. With an Amy’s. Classic, love it girl!

    And your hubs surprirsing you for Vday a weekend early…aww, that’s soooo sweet!

  6. The pinto noir looks excellent! Sorry about your car dying…but great that the owner was able to jump you!

  7. What a day! I’m glad I stopped by to see you AFTER all that was taken care of, and after your home made biscotti came out of the oven. It is delicious. I had to force myself to save some for Dad.
