Celebrating Cookie Friday with a New Friend

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

This afternoon, I got to celebrate Cookie Friday with a new friend: Jenny! :mrgreen: Jenny is a student at Harvard and she’s been reading Carrots ‘N’ Cake from almost the very beginning. We met near the John Harvard statue before heading to Hi-Rise Bakery to enjoy a couple of cookies.


Hi-Rise was pretty busy today, but we managed to score a table outside, where we chatted for almost an hour! Jenny and I had a lot in common.


As usual, selecting a cookie at Hi-Rise was tough work! I ended up picking an Oatmeal Coconut Pecan cookie, while Jenny chose a Chocolate Chunk cookie. Delish! 😀


After work today, I’m headed to Newport for the weekend with my hubby. Unfortunately, Murphy isn’t allowed at my in-law’s timeshare, so Auntie Sister is on pug duty for the weekend. She is SO EXCITED for Murphy to come stay with her! I’m going to miss M.P. (Murphy Pug/Piranha) sooooo much, but I know he’ll be in good hands.

Murphy actually has a busy weekend ahead of him– including two family parties and a long walk around the lake. I wonder if he’ll even miss Mom and Dad?

A BIG Thank You

With all of the craziness surrounding my recent West coast trip to BlogHer Food 09, I failed to thank my wonderful sponsor for their support. So, here’s a BIG thank you to NASOYA for sponsoring me! I truly appreciate Nasoya’s support of my foodie/blogger endeavors! The trip couldn’t have been possible without it! :mrgreen:

  1. Have so much fun in Newport. That is my hometown, I miss it! We are stationed in Florida (panhandle) with the Air Force. Have a Dels Lemonade for me =)

  2. I hate spending weekends away from my pups. Don’t worry though, adorable little Murphy will DEFINITELY miss you! Expect major kisses when you see him next!

  3. oh, Murphy is going to have a blast! Every time we go out of town I feel bad leaving my dog but she doesn’t miss us one bit, haha. She is always happy to see us when we get back though 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  4. I always think that we miss our animals more than they miss us when the Husband and I are on vacation – but then we pick them up from whoever is babysitting and they are so excited to see us! It’s great. I’m sure Murphy will miss both of you – though it sounds like his first night back home will be a tired one!


  5. Happy Cookie Friday!!! I participated for the first time officially today with a Gingerbread man from the bakery near my gym…. BEST idea ever! I’m making sure to celebrate every week from now on 🙂 Your cookie choice looks awesomeee
