CURRENTLY, I AM....


Reading: My planner for a list of things going on/to-do's for this week. On the plus side, it's one more week that we are closer to spring! Cha-ching.

Watching: Nothing right now, but tonight you better believe I will be tuned in for the Bachelor, RHOBH, and Pump Rules (addicted to this show). It's the one night I actually look forward to watching t.v (and that I have time for) especially since it's right after my favorite spin class. 


This weekend, I had a night out with my girlfriends and we went and saw Safe Haven. The movie was so cute! I never read the book (wish I would have!), but two of my girlfriends did. We all really enjoyed it, but agreed it wasn't quite to the level of The Notebook. ;) 


Loving: that we got our taxes done over the weekend. Not loving? the 4 hours it took us to do them.

Also, loving these tasty treats I found in the frozen section at the grocery store that I posted to instagram last night.... {follow me on instagram at: katiewkrysh}


100 cals? Yes please. Sign me up.

Looking Forward To: Our trip to Texas that is in 2.5 weeks! So excited about ALL of it-going to the rodeo for the first time, the warmer weather, meeting new blog friends (cheers to THAT!), oh and to see this girl...


 Wondering: when I will start feeling better! Unfortunately, this weekend I caught the bug and got really sick. Saturday I woke up feeling terrible and ended up sleeping for over 16 hours! I was only up for a couple hours during the day and when I was, I just wanted to go back to sleep. When I woke up on Sunday, I felt a little bit better, but I'm still not feeling 100% and a cough has formed. I'm taking my vitamins, doubling up on the water, and juicing like crazy.... hoping this works! Being sick is for the birds.

Cooking/Baking: Still making lots of chili (this recipe. Usually on Sunday's so it will last me all week) Another favorite of ours are the baked southwestern egg rolls (vegetarian + husband approved!) We had them for dinner last night!




Disliking: that my favorite spin instructor has been MIA for the past week and a half! He is by far the best instructor at our gym and so I'm hoping he's back this week. It's crazy how much difference a really good instructor makes on the class! (side note: if you are looking to burn a whole bunch of calories and haven't tried spin-go try it now!)

Making Me Happy: my husband and Rocky were saints this weekend. Billy ran errands for me and went grocery shopping, while Rocky was such a cuddle bug and didn't leave my side. 



Wishing you: a happy Monday and rest of the week! If you're new around here-please speak up and say hi! :) I'm so happy to have you here! Link up your weekend shenanigans here!

How was your weekend?

  7. Feel better pretty lady! There is some type of bug floatingaround these parts. At least you have a fun trip to look forward to! xoxo, Lindsay

  8. Hope you feel better soon... and that your favorite spin instructor returns soon. I hate that. I have a spin instructor I actively avoid, I'll rearrange my entire schedule to make sure I don't have her class and about a week ago she subbed for my favorite teacher at the last minute. I almost cried. (Granted, I wasn't feeling well already and was uber emotional) but messing with a girl's spin schedule is a dangerous thing!

  9. Feel better, lady! I haven't decided on whether to see Safe Haven or not. I read the book... and you know the movie is just never as good!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hope you feel better, girl! As for me, I'm probably off taking a trip to the store to get me some banana dippers! YUM.

  13. Yay I'm so glad Safe Haven was good. We have been talking about going to watch it but hadn't heard anyone talk about it yet. And seriously that cup is the cutest ever. Where in the world did you find that beaut?

    No fun on being sick. Hope you get to feeling better!

  18. Monday's are the only night I really watch TV, there's so many good shows on!

    Having the right spin instructor makes all the difference in the class. Luckily I've only found one bad one at my gym!

  19. I got the book to the movie in my popsugar box this month, so I really don't have an excuse not to read it. And those banana slices look fantastic. I saw chocolate covered frozen banana slices at Trader Joe's when I made the trip, but I'm going to have to look for them in my regular grocery store now.

  20. Ok now I'm craving those banana dippers! yummm!

  21. I totally agree on the instructor thing! Last Tuesday, the usual instructor decided to be lazy and we had another guy that I'm not as fond of. I couldn't believe that a spin instructor was being lazy! Hopefully he is back this week!

  22. Those eggrolls sound so good and the chili looks amazing. Hope you feel better! I'm glad your husband and Rocky are taking good care of you! :)

  31. Im new here! Thanks for the welcome.

    Watch out with this cold. Mine started just like yours, I felt better after a few days and went back to work. The cough developed and then I was right back to being sick with bronchitis. Yuck!

    Two weeks later and Im still hacking but feeling much better! Hope you do too. :)

  32. I hate being sick! Worst ever.
    I am a HUGE Nicholas Sparks fan and Safe Haven is one of my favorites! I can't wait to see the movie - and even without seeing it is def. not the Notebook!

  35. Isn't Pump Rules the BEST?! Love that show! Oh...and being a tax accountant...just imagine doing taxes for 60+ hours a week....ahhhhhh! Be happy you only have to do it for four hours a year :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh hey friend. Mondays are totally my favorite nights of TV now too! I'm obsessed. And pretty sure I'm doing the chili route this week too! We made an awesome chili a week ago and I was so sad it ran out. Haha. Good thing I picked up more ingredients for the rest of the week! Woohoo!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Okay seriously, those banana and chocolate bites... look... delish! Oh man. Are they good? I need to know where I can get some. Also that "I love my dog" mug is totally fitting with Rocky in the background. Love it.

  38. My girlfriends and I went to see Safe Haven this weekend as well! Except, while we loved it and all, one of them commented "I signed up for a romantic comedy!!!!!!" hahahaha, it was a bit dramatic...

    Are you heading to Houston by any chance?? I'm from there and the Rodeo is SO MUCH FUN!!!
