Wednesday Randoms: V-Day & B-Day Sweets & Treats + They're in on this too + Olympic Addictions

Hey guys!! I want to wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day!! I hope our day is filled with all things love, kindness and happiness! If you aren’t a big fan of the whole “LOVE DAY” celebration in a “couple” way, I’d encourage you to just take today as a day of self-love and do some things that bring YOU all the joy! Nick and I aren’t overly huge Valentine’s Day celebrators in the “date” sense, but I’m all about the sweet treats and spreading love around! Anyways, when a holiday revolves around sweets, you know I’m all for it! πŸ˜‰ Today’s post is definitely filled with a little extra sugar, and I’m more than okay with that!

I also want to start off and say a quick thank you SO much for all of your encouragement and support of our renovation project that we FINALLY got to share the past few days! It’s been so much fun sharing the before and afters of this house, and your kind words and support mean so much to us! You guys are the absolute best and I love having this space to share all of those things with you! I know running hasn’t been going down near as much, as house reno life has been a complete take over lately, but I promise I’ll be back with more running posts really soon!

In true Wednesday Random’s fashion, I’ve got a healthy dose of randomness to share with you today! Get ready for ALL THE random things! πŸ˜‰ As always, thank you for stopping for the blog today! I hope your day is just as amazing as you are!!


The Olympics have us highly addicted. Anyone else feel like their work should come to a complete stop for the entire 2 weeks of the Olympics? I feel like we should all get to spend our days glued to the TV screens watching it all day every day! We have loved tuning in each night, but last night was extra good! Did you see Shaun White?! His celebration at the end totally made me tear up, like I know him or something! HA! I was so proud!!! You can see his drive and passion for his sport is bigger than life and he earned that medal big time, last night!


Besides the Olympics going on, we celebrated Nick’s birthday last week! His mom always does the cutest decorations for our birthdays and this year was just as cute as ever. She hangs streamers and all! I kind of think she bought the cupcakes and cute dog cake as a treat for me, but we’ll pretend they were for Nick. πŸ˜‰

As if we didn’t have enough sweets around the house, we had to continue the celebration fun with a few muffins from our favorite bakery, Whole Foods! These two, (the blueberry and chocolate) are our favorites and never disappoint.

I’ll take one of each please! πŸ™‚


Apparently, the dogs are trying to tell us that they’re totally in on this whole “home renovation” gig with us! We should probably try to find them some hard hats to wear around the house next go-around. Always good to keep a saw handy when you’re playing with your toys….How that got in there, I have no idea.

When he’s not busy building things, he loves lounging in our new reading “nook” in the master bedroom.


We were cleaning out the garage the other day and put together our last little bit of samples left to put in storage. We realized we mayyyyyy have half of a paint store with the amount of samples we purchased with this house. To think this is only a small portion of it all though is crazy to me!

We named this “The Leaning Tower of Paint Samples”…;)


Peanut butter + Banana + Honey + Toast= WINNING combination!


I tried out a “frothy protein coffee” recipe the other day and loved it! I’ve been wanting to try out “bullet proof coffee” for a while now but haven’t ever gotten around to it! But, I had a few similar ingredients around the other day and decided to give it a try. With my one cup of brewed coffee, I added a tiny amount of coconut oil and a small scoop of chocolate protein powder to the blender. It came out extra frothy and delicious! I’ll definitely be making it more often! I may try to add some cinnamon and vanilla next time!
