MIMM 2/10/14 + Arctic Zero Giveaway Winners!

Happy Monday! This weekend was a slow one for me, as Steven is pretty much couch/bed-ridden still from his surgery. We spent Friday and Saturday just hanging out together, and yesterday I got to do some shopping with the girls which was fun :) However, I felt pretty guilty about the amount of money I spent. In my 12months12changes post I talked about budgeting in March I believe, but I think that's going to start sooner. I also saw Rachael's post on her no-spend January project and thought that was a good idea. So starting today I am going to go 4 weeks without spending anything on myself outside of groceries. I don't know that you know how tough this is going to be for me. I really need to do it though! So for 2 paychecks I won't spend any extra on myself. This means I have to stop looking at clothes online. Seriously. It's a problem. I think I can do it though! 

Here are some pictures from this marvelous weekend! Thanks Katie for the link up!

Beautiful sunset from the hot tub Friday night

I'm trying to get my butt back in gear with some full body workouts! I did Saturday and then refueled with an egg white omelet, blueberries and dark chocolate almonds.

If I could marry PB&J I would. In a heartbeat.

Made Perfect Fit protein pancakes Saturday night for dinner! I used the new chocolate flavor (forgot to take a picture so I used the vanilla for this) and it was DELICIOUS! Love Perfect Fit.

LOVE this tea tin from World Market! It was 1.99 and perfection. I already filled it up!

Also got this Valentine's Pasta for Friday night's dinner for me and Steven :) Too cute.

AND of course picked up these plates. I have been lusting over them for a week now and I'm literally obsessed....

And have already used them :) Also, this omelet is seriously awesome....egg whites with cinnamon, topped with PB&J. It's fine.

I am also SO excited to announce the two winners for the Arctic Zero giveaway!!! 

Bee Hare & Liz Bierly!!!

Winners, I just emailed you; be sure to respond with your addresses in 24 hours or I will have to pick new winners :)  Congratulations! Thank you all for participating!!

Have a great start to the week and I will have some recipes, workouts, and motivation tips for you this week. See ya!


  1. OHhhh I think I'm doing no spend February but only because I really can't spend haha. I think if you put a chunk of your paycheck into your savings account then you can trick yourself to believe you literally don't have enough money in your checking account to spend. Maybe not but this usually works for me!

    1. True dat on the "Accidental 'No Spending Project'". Broke-as-a-spoke is the way to be, geez! :)

  2. I am in L-O-V-E with those plates! Oh my gosh! What a wonderful week you have lined up, even if you did check away some cash. ;) And that pasta! Good grief. You're definitely one of those people who can find everything I want and can never think to try to find. Lol!

    Healing thoughts to Steven!

  3. You picked me up a couple extra plates right?!?! LOL. I forgive you ;) That pasta is too cute!

  4. Super duper excited about winning the giveaway! Hopping on email as soon as i get home :D

  5. I love all those household items you got! World Market is a great find and has good deals sometimes.
