Overnight Chia Oats w/ Fresh Fruit

Happy Sunday Funday!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend…some of you might even be lucky enough to have President’s day off!! woohooo :] This weekend was filled with TRX workouts, healthy food, and lots & lots of Game of Thrones & Downton Abbey. haha my #1 and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones, and I’m a new fan of the series Downton Abbey. (you guys should watch them)… they are good, great, grand!

I’ve been looking forward to this week for quite some time because I am helping my best friend at the Magic tradeshow in Las Vegas. She is soo talented and I am so excited to help her showcase her amazing jewelry line. Check her site out here Jaeci – her stuff is killer. love.

Soo because I’m going to be on the go this week, I decided to plan ahead and make my breakfast beforehand–plus overnight oats are soo tasty, filling, & energizing.

My Overnight Chia Oats:

1/3 cup almond or flax milk

1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats

1/4 cup greek yogurt

1 1/2 tsp chia seeds

1 tsp honey or agave nectar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup applesauce

topped with organic coconut flakes, sliced almonds, strawberries, & chopped kiwi!

** put first 6 ingredients into jar. Secure lid & shake to combine. Remove lid, add applesauce and stir well. Top with coconut, almonds, and fruit. Refrigerate overnight, or up to 3 days! Enjoy

Just for happy thoughts here is Nala bear after her bath tonight — haha puppy eyes & all. Love her.

Fab Friday

Hey lovelies!

I hope you all are having a great start to you fab friday–today I switched up my workout with a killer TRX class, and let me tell you it was a killer. My muscles are def. feeling it. I love switching up my work outs to make sure I’m working all of my muscles-muscle confusion is key.Plus TRX is one of my favorite workouts. It is based around suspension body weight exercises which builds all body strength, flexibility, and your core all at once. Plus it’s fun! I’m really debating on buying one of these for my house — it’s that good! Learn more about TRX here, or find a gym in your area that offers this 3-D workout! If you are in the Las Vegas Area, Inferno Pilates offers this class at 9:00 M-F, it’s a great way to start your day. love.

I burned 363 calories in the 45 min. TRX class — and the great thing is, the calorie burn keeps on going long after the workout.

A heart of giving is a admirable thing to have. Yesterday, I went to an annual luncheon held by Catholic Charities of Las Vegas where they honored some lovely people with the Heart of Hope award. An award that is given to some of the most generous, kind, and inspirational people–who help change & give hope to other peoples lives. This statement, “We make a living with what we get, but we make a life by what we give” is what I strive to live by, because I truly believe that a giving heart is what will bring you more joy than anything else. I’m so blessed to be surrounded by such loving, caring, genuine, and selfless people in this world. My family & friends are the best!

Words to live by.

be happy peeps, and enjoy the moment.

I’m loving this lip gloss — if you live in a dry place or if you have constantly chapped lips like I do, this stuff is literally the greatest!!

you can find this little jar of heaven here.

and of course, it wouldn’t be a fab. friday without a BABY NALA update–she is 10 weeks today and you guys she really is the sweetest girl. She loves to be loved on & held like a little baby. She is a curious little bugger though, sniffing everything, chewing on sticks, her toys & sleeping a bunch! She is a growing girl & I have to be honest, she’s a daddy’s girl — I don’t blame her — he is the best!!

Nala likes driving on moms lap :] too cute.

Another thing I love about Friday is the fact that the new movies come out — and I can’t even tell you how excited I am to see Identity Thief tonight!! Review to come — I think that’s enough for my fab. friday round-up! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend & remember think happy & be happy!

Do you have any exciting plans this weekend?

Have you tried TRX, and what are your fav. type of workouts?

Meet Nala – our new baby!

There is no mistake that GOD and DOG are palindromes. Dogs love unconditionally – no matter what we do – just like  God. That’s why my husband and I loveee all dogs – they bring so much love & joy into peoples lives. I’ve never raised a big dog so I am so excited that my husband and I finally decided to get one. We got a Goldendoodle :] not only are these dogs smart, loving, family-oriented dogs, but they don’t shed–which is a great quality to have! We couldn’t be happier with our newest addition – she is already a lover and we couldn’t be more excited to have her in our lives. I know she is going to bring so much joy into our worlds and ours into hers :] There truly isn’t anything better than puppies!

Meet NALA (named after the Lion King of course – my fav. disney movie)
