This guy of course. Two is actually a really fun age!

 I have to say, it’s been nice having my in-laws stay with us this past week (probably why two is seeming ok at the moment ;) ). Noah is literally in heaven and he’s had lots of time with his cousins too!

Between parties, movies, cupcakes, and dinosaur museums it’s going to be hard for him to go back to just mommy…

Other things I’m loving, yesterday I did something that was highly therapeutic (hint, hint: try it!). I (alone) went to Sephora to pick up a bottle of perfume and ended up spending about 45 minutes in the cosmetic section trying on all sorts of things I would never buy. It was such a blast honestly, and out of character for me since most days I wear no makeup whatsoever :-) I felt like a whole new person after I left with my lone purchase.

A few foodie items? These two bars! The pro bar is actually a meal replacement bar I first tried at ERC as a snack and it’s full of wholesome ingredients, nuts, and dried fruit. I’m finding it’s hard to eat a lot at one sitting so grazing works better for me!

And a few indulgences :-)

I know you’re sick of me saying it but also YOGA! I’ve gone several days in a row now and I already notice a difference in my flexibility. Then again I had my work cut out for me ;-) Either way, it’s awesome. 

I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!!! Don’t forget to enter my Healthy Bites Giveaway that ends Friday!

Tell me some things you’re loving lately!!!!

Oh that chcoloate bar and the almond butter look SO good. I have never had the vanilla, but I love the maple!

Right now I am loving my running, but not my running socks. Time to find some sales!

Maple is next on my list! The sea salt in the dark chocolate makes all the difference! It’s amazing!

I used to loveee going into Sephora and trying on a bunch of things for a long time. Good for you for taking the time to do that for yourself!
I’ve been loving big yogurt bowls for breakfast, banana soft serve with peanut butter, and checking things off my to-do list!

Justin’sssssss!! I literally just scraped my last jar clean to make my breakfast, and I’m already panicking. We can’t get it up here in Canada, so I’m thinking a trip down south has to happen real soon…

And you get the added bonus of it being warm here :-) Loved your muffin recipe today!!!


7 Heather @fitncookies January 21, 2014 at 8:04 am

Aww, Noah is adorable! Too cute for words! I’m sure he’s been enjoying having gramma and grampa time, and giving you a break! I actually need to get to Sephora and that sounds like a brilliant idea to do while there!

I could spend hours at Sephora! I usually leave with swatch marks all over my arm. Right now I’m loving the way my toddler pronounces Sushi…it’s the cutest thing ever!

Hahahaha that’s super cute! I need to take Noah for some sushi and see how he says it! Too funny!


10 Heidi @ Idlehide January 21, 2014 at 10:14 am

I love roaming around Sephora. I usually leave with a perfume sample:D
Right now I’m loving my down time before the baby arrives, which was due yesterday! I’m definitely nesting, but loving being able to freely go here and there before he arrives. He can come anytime now though….:)

Sending lots of prayers and healthy labor vibes your way! He will be here before you know it!!!


12 Katie @ running4cupcakes January 21, 2014 at 10:25 am

I have tried Justin’s maple almond butter – but I NEED to try the vanilla version ASAP. So much fun having family around and doing all those fun things together – the museum sounds awesome. :)

I have just tried the Pro Bars as well and really like them! I love the ingredient list!
I just bought some of that Godiva chocolate for my husband and I have ate more of it than he has! I would have to say those are the things that I am loving lately!

Whenever I am on vacay in NYC, I swing through sephora in between day time sight seeing and night time plans to ‘freshen up’. It’s a habit I started in college while visiting my BFF and we’ve kept it up all this time.

LOVE that vanilla almond butter! My husband bought a bar of dark chocolate over the weekend, but it was 90 (or 92%) cacao- so bitter! I’ve browsed Sephora many times, but I’m so cheap that I also leave empty handed, haha.

Wow that’s DARK! I also got an 85% one and I’m just not on that level yet haha.


18 Hollie January 21, 2014 at 12:19 pm

He is just so cute!

Right now I’m loving anything and everything warm. I’m a fair weathered runner and this snow is killing me so anything to keep me warm in the other hours I’m not running.

Things I’m always loving include running and dark chocolate pomegranate. I’m also loving my crock pot. And guacamole.

Mmmm Justin’s nut butter is the BEST! I just wish it weren’t so darn pricey.

P.S. LOVE the larger photos!

It looks like Noah had a great time :) Lately I have been loving making soups and salads for my hubby and me. So yummy! I am also loving getting everything ready for my baby girl to get here! 3 weeks and 3 days until my due date!!!

I am loving yoga too as the moment! I love feeling my body get stronger and more flexible each week!

Try the Godiva dark chocolate squares with the salted caramel filling-divine!

Sephora is my all time favorite. I’m trying to use the last of my mascara right now. Scraping the sides! Two is a really fun age. Scarlet went through a fit throwing not listening phase but I honestly haven’t found an age I haven’t loved. And I already have baby fever again!

I got that same perfume from my mom for Christmas! Isn’t it wonderful? Currently I am loving marathon training! It has been going really well so far and I’m really enjoying having a race to train for again!
