Here’s another ridiculous pug costume for you!

Miley Cyrus? Wrecking ball? AMAZING.

I got back from Bethlehem last night. (What a weekend! I have SO MUCH to tell you guys!) I ended up snagging an earlier flight on standby, so I was home around 7:00 PM. Yay! Mal and Murphy were excited to see me when I got home and, of course, I was so happy to see them.

Mal was basically Super Husband while I was away. Listen to this”¦ He cleaned the entire house from top to bottom. He even washed the windows in the living room””who is he?! He mowed both the back and front yards and raked up all of the leaves. He also drove out to Funny Farm, split wood, and hauled it back to our house for future fires.

And Mal meal planned and went grocery shopping for the week. Best husband ever. I am one lucky gal!

Speaking of meal planning, last night’s dinner was a good one. We had grilled chicken with roasted broccoli, rice, and steamed spinach. Delish!

And, for dessert, Mal and I dug into some Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food. We didn’t finish the entire pint, but we came really close!

This morning, I slept in until 7:30 (I was exhausted after this past weekend) and then made myself breakfast, which was a toasted bagel with whipped cream cheese and a banana with peanut butter spread on top.

I also drank a big glass of pineapple orange banana juice with breakfast.

Question of the Day

What do you think of Miley Cyrus?

I actually like her. I used to just roll my eyes at her ridiculous antics, but I saw an interview with her on Ellen, and she made me change my opinion about her. She’s definitely an adventurous 20-year-old, but she seems like a great business woman too.

What’s your favorite kind of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream?

Half Baked!

What’s on your agenda for workouts this week?

CrossFit and running, but today is definitely a rest day. My legs are smoked!

P.S. CrossFit peeps: I thought you guys might like this post from Talayna Fortunato, so I’m just passing it along: Top 10 Mistakes CrossFitters Make.



  1. I kinda feel bad for Miley, she hasn’t gotten a chance to grow and mature in a normal environment. Anytime she makes a poor decision she gets way too much attention. That said, I find her attempts to be street and bad girl are completely silly and unconvincing.

    I love me some Chubby Hubby…mmm.

    Hitting up HIIT and fight fitness this week. I should also make a point to get some yoga in too.

  2. I feel the same way about Miley! I thought at first that it was all very horrible and crazy but then I realized that she has a plan and is doing it purposefully.
    SMORES is the best Ben & Jerry’s!!!

  3. I’ve always been a fan and have stuck by her through and through. After seeing the same episode of Ellen, I had more respect for her and found her to be inspiring in my own life. Being that she is the same age as me, it makes me want to live for what makes me happy instead of focusing on others.

  4. Oh man, I love Phish Food. My mom and I used to eat it all the time growing up 🙂

    That’s really sweet that Mal was Super Husband! I know if my guy put together our meal plan, it would be Tacos, Tacos, Pizza, More Tacos, and Mac & Cheese. -.- haha
