PBF in 2010

As I’m sure you’ve already ascertained, I’m a nut lovin’ girl. (Go ahead and giggle you filthy-minded readers! šŸ˜€ )

I obviously love peanuts and peanut butter, but my all-time favorite nut is pecans (candied preferably).

Well, lately I’ve been falling hard for another nut.

Hello, Pistachio


I love this green little nut. For someone who has a very hard time exercising portion control around nuts, the pistachio shells help me to slow down a bit and feel like I’m eating more. The little extra effort its worth it sometimes.

My breakfast today included a mini bowl of pistachios for some healthy fat along with a toasted whole wheat bagel thin.

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

I topped the bagel thin with a smear of cream cheese and spread homemade cranberry sauce on one half.

Berry Good

It’s pretty and deliciois!

This breakfast tasted great after a quality workout at the gym. Today I took a BodyPump class that completely rocked my arms. I loved it. My arms still feel fatigued a couple hours later.

I also learned that my gym will no longer be offering BodyPump on Friday mornings. It is still a very popular class, but the instructor who typically taught on Friday mornings is injured and can no longer teach. Bummer! I guess I have no choice to stick with my plan of changing up my routine!

And now for some 2010 fun!

PBF in 2010

    I’ll never forget this year and I’m torn as to whether it was good or bad, on Jan. 1st we had a chimney fire ( no major damage) and we are still in the remodeling fase because my hubby is all go big or go home:) We lost our cat which was my first pet as a grownup living on my own ( my husband brought home the kids and I 2 kittens for Christmas). And I won a refrigerator from All you magazine. I’m ready for 2011!

    2010 was great since we took a vacation to Australia and New Zealand. I’m excited to see what 2011 brings for you, Ryan and Sadie. Best wishes and Happy New Years!

    I do believe I single handedly pushed the Pumpkin Spice Cookies blog into the number 1 spot because I kept showing everyone…OH M GEE you have to see these cookies, I made them, they’re delish, you should make them too! Like how I force other people’s recipes onto OTHER PEOPLE? I do haha go team!

    The “How to Freak Out Your Wife” reminded me of the time my other half tried to attack our mattress while I was sleeping. Since he is 6’4″ and 300 lbs this was absolutely terrifying! He was sleepwalking (sleepattacking?) and had no idea what he was doing. By the way, our mattress lost. Great Post!

    I loved Ryan’s guest post! He’s quite witty, and he’s got quite some writing chops!

    And unfortunately, I could totally see my boyfriend doing “How to Freak Out Your Wife,” but be consciously aware of exactly what he was doing. šŸ™‚
