Like alot of others, we were snowed in yesterday.


I love the snow. See how pretty?

So – how long do we think it will take before my hubby gets sick from shoveling snow in a long sleeve shirt and shorts, after his run + workout in which he was drenched with sweat?

At least he had on a hat, right?



I spent the entire day inside, with 3 of my best friends.

I couldn’t ask for a better time or more fabulous conversation.



After shopping all today, I wanted to make a few more treats before Christmas. Actually, I need to do something to take my mind off babies after shopping in the infant section this afternoon.


I took a hint from 2 of my favorite bloggers – Sabrina & Erica.


I made a huge batch of chocolate covered pretzels. They were so fun to make!


Some covered in sprinkles:

And pecans + sea salt (my fave!):

I also made some chocolate covered Oreos.

    I just found your blog and I’m really excited. I was looking into personal training about a year ago and some things happened and life changed a little bit so i’ve been out of the swing of things. But it’s awesome that you put a little workout schedule on your page so if any of us don’t know what to do, we can look at that and feel the burn! Haha. Your pretzels look too good! I say that because I’m going to be in my car in 10 minutes driving to the store to get ingredients for them. They should be for christmas gifts but I know a couple of them won’t be going there! Thanks for the post!
