Confessional Friday!

Well ladies, we FINALLY made it to Friday!  Is it just me or do you feel like you've been put through the ringer this week!?  What I do know is that I'm ready for a nice cold margarita!

Yep!  I'll be stopping by the liquor store this afternoon to pick up a bottle of this...
This is a WIN, WIN!  De-Lish & Skinny!?  YEP!

Moving right along here...

Today, I'm linking up with Leslie @ A Blonde Ambition to confess my little heart out!

I CONFESS....

1) I've been a little confused with the Drop 10 challenge.  I'm not really sure what part is confusing to me but, it is sort of.  However, I have worked out everyday this week except for Tuesday - & that was all thanks to Mother Nature.  :)  & I'll be hitting the gym this afternoon as well!

2) Remember last week when I said I had never been to Sephora?  Well, I went, I saw & I bought... Only the two items I was going for.  Matt was with me & you know how weird & whiny guys get when you take them to department store... & to be in a large section full of make-up!?  He was about to pop!  We had to leave, stat!

3) I HAVE NOT had a McDonald's sweet tea OR breakfast burritos one time this week!  THIS is an accomplishment y'all!  I LOVE their sweet tea & with it being only $1, who can pass that up!?  This girl has & I've been on straight H2O this week & feeling great about it!

4) I was soooo against The Hunger Games when I first saw the movie pre-view.  First of all, I don't like scary or creepy movies & just seeing the pre-view freaked me out!  But, with all the talk of how great the movie was, even for those who haven't read the books, & how if you take out the fact that they are children who are fighting to the death, it's really a great movie.  So, I may or may not be crossing over... I'll keep you posted on my decision though!
 

5) Friday's are jean day at work... & I'm wearing my skinny jeans!  :)  (For those who don't know, these are a recent purchase & I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!)

That's all I've got for today lovely ladies!  Don't forget to hop on over to Leslie's & spill your confessions!

We're participating in a charity motorcycle ride tomorrow!  Please pray for lots of money to be raised for this sweet family!

I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!

XOXO,

{Skinny} Meatloaf & Enchiladas {Recipes}

Since Matt & I both are getting back on track with hitting the gym & eating right, I've been in search of some delicious recipes that are healthy.  Yes, that's right, I said healthy & skinny!

Thanks to Miss Lindsey, I discovered the Skinny Taste blog!

Last week, we made the Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting.  The meatloaf was to die for!  But, we used too much Thyme in our potatoes & it totally ruined them - lesson learned.  So, in a hurry I ran to the store & grabbed a box of instant potatoes.  So, since dinner was such a cluster there's no proof of pictures that I actually made it.  But, I did, I promise.  Next time I most likely won't use Thyme at all.

Last night, we made the Skinny Chicken Enchiladas.  I'm used to sour cream enchiladas & was a little sketchy about these but, they did NOT disappoint!  I was so full but, Matt went back for seconds!  The recipe calls for 2 large chicken breast but, I think next time we will use 3 to fill the enchiladas more.  OH & the best part about these Enchiladas... each one is only 160 calories!!!  Make 'em!




Have you heard of Skinny Taste before?  What are some of your favorite "skinny" recipes?

I got in 3 miles of cardio at a resistance of 6 yesterday at the gym.  I'll do another 3 miles and the Drop 10 Challenge workout this afternoon.  Today's Drop 10 Challenge workout is here... 
8 simple toning moves!

Hope y'all have a great day!

Weekend Rundown!

Hey y'all!  I hope this finds you coming off of a great weekend & jumping feet first into Monday!

As I mentioned Friday, Matt & I both cut out of work early & hit the back roads on the motorcycle.  We had no plans on exactly where we were going & didn't really care.  I just wanted to get out of town & see the countryside from the back of the bike!

We rode for about 4 1/2 hours that afternoon covering about 200 miles.
It was exactly what I needed!



Saturday morning we took a walk & since the Blue Bonnets are out, I HAD to take the opportunity for a quick photo shoot with Bingham!


Isn't he sooo cute!?  I'm partial, I know!

& then we celebrated a very special 3 year olds birthday!
It was the best super hero birthday ever!



Happy Birthday Tyler, we love you so much!

Sunday we made it to church & it felt so good to be there!  Getting the week started off right!
Got my gym bag ready for the gym this afternoon & then the Monday Drop 10 challenge!
How was your weekend?  Did you sign up for the Drop 10 Challenge!?  If not, join me!
E-mail me  OR follow me on Twitter & tweet me your workouts!  I would LOVE to hear what & how you are doing!  Having a good support system is one of the keys to sticking with your workouts!

Happy Monday!

XOXO,

Hey y'all!  Happy Friday!!!

Since it's Friday, you KNOW what that means... 
I'm linking up with Leslie for
 

I Confess....

1) I'll be making my very first trip to Sephora this weekend!  I know! I know!  This is insane to some of you that I've NEVER been but, honestly y'all, I've always been a Cover Girl girl!  Nothing fancy, just simple.
However, thanks to Hilary & our Glitz & Glam swap back at Christmas time... I'm HOOKED & need more products!  Here's the two things I'm mainly going for

Shadow Insurance Candlelight Softly Illuminating Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
via
Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara

2)  It's been a little difficult for me to get back in the swing of things since we've been home from Red River.  BUT, thank goodness for the Tone It Up girls & SELF magazine, I'm participating in the DROP 10 challenge!  I haven't worked out everyday but, this weekend I plan on getting everything lined up, ie: gym bag, meal plan, etc & getting back on track & in a full swing routine!

If you want to participate in the DROP 10 challenge, there's still time!  Go here to enter!

3)  I'm excited that I've found my motivation!  I'm not only motivated to get in shape & live a healthier life... Promise this time I'm FOR REAL!  But, Matt & I have set some major goals for ourselves to be DEBT FREE within the next year to year & a half!  The latter is a big goal but, we're determined to do it!

4) I'M BUSTING OUT OF THE OFFICE EARLY TODAY!  Matt & I have great boss' & we decided since the weather is SO nice today, we're taking a motorcycle cruise!  2 o'clock can't get her fast enough!!!


That's all I've got for today lovely people!  Go link-up with Leslie & confess yourself!
We've got a slow-paced weekend ahead & excited about it!
Hope y'all have a great weekend!!!

Hey y'all!  First of all, Happy Hump Day!!!  Second, if you have commented on my blog in the last couple of weeks & I haven't replied back to you - my apologies.  I try VERY VERY hard to reply back to everyone who has taken the time out of their day to 1, read what I wrote & 2, comment on my blog.  It means a lot to me that y'all take that time & I try to return it.  I've been a little behind but, you should have an e-mail in you inbox now!  :)

Spring Ski Trip - Red River, NM

Hey y'all!  As many of you know Matt & I went skiing for a few days last week with a group of friends.

This being my second ski trip ever, I had quite a bit of fun!  Last year & this year we went to Red River, NM.  It's a super small town that I absolutely fell in love with last year but, it's perfect for new skiers like myself & families too!  OR those of us who don't have families yet!

Here's a recap of our trip in pictures! 

If you recall, we went to my best friend's wedding first on Saturday evening & from there we started our journey to Red River!
After driving until about 3:30am Texas time we decided to stop in Tucumcari, NM & stay the night.  The next morning we made a stop at a Big K-Mart - haven't been there in YEARS!  HAHA!

Historical Route 66 runs right through town... I HAD to snap some pics!


I'm a sucker for old timey signs like this one!

93 mile stretch of road... a long, long ways!

Goodbye New Mexico!

Hello Texas!

Well, that was our trip!  We had SO much fun & I cannot wait to go back!  Kim & I decided that we'll be taking on more blue slopes next year so we can keep up with the rest of the gang!  No more baby slopes for us!

Do you enjoy skiing?  Are you one who does tricks off the black diamonds or one who enjoys taking it easy on the greens?  (Like me!)

XOXO,
      Shayna
