Treat Yourself Tuesday #3


It’s that time of the week again… Another treat yourself tuesday courtesy of Becky at Olivesnwine!!! If you are interested in hearing about how #treatyourselftuesday began check it out here. Becky is a firm supporter of treating ourselves even in the smallest ways. It can be with shopping, working out, sweet treats…. anything that is for you!

Now onto how I treated myself this week 🙂

First I treated myself with a little bit of shopping on HauteLook. If you have never used HauteLook before it is a Nordstrom Company shopping site that hosts different sales online. I got some cute halloween and christmas decorations! They were all around 60% off the original price. You can shop for womens, mens and kids clothing, home decor, kitchen…. ANYTHING!!! It is great…. this is my first time purchasing from HauteLook and I can’t wait to get that package in the mail.

Today is my last day of med-surg clinicals so we are bringing treats for the amazing people who helped us get through out 10 days of clinicals!!!! I of course had to bake 🙂

The first delicious treat I made was my monster cookies!! Oh my are they the best cookie ever! Many people have tried them and they all agree they are amazing! People beg me to make them. I even sent a batch to my friend Cara when she was living in Korea!


They are gooy and chocolaty!!!! I will be posting the recipe later this week…. hope you can wait that long!

Now to be on the healthier side I am bringing Katie’s  Chia Peanut Butter Power Bars.  This bars surprised me… they are relatively healthy and so good. I am really picking about protein bars but these are amazing! Whenever I make them they are gone within a couple of days.

I know the staff on the unit and my classmates will love these.


Maisy is pretending to sleep while I am baking…. she has to be in the prime spot to catch anything that falls! She loves peanut butter!

The last way that I treated myself this week was at Target…. of course…. as you all know I LOVE target!!! I stop by the movie section this morning and pick up The Heat.


I have not seen it yet but I am super excited to watch it!!!! I love Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.

Your turn…

How did you treat yourself this week?


August Pinterest Challenge Recap

WOW August went by really fast…. I think I got a few pinterest things checked off my list 🙂

Spicy Chicken Tortilla Roll Ups

Nikki's Shower 074.1

OMG these are so amazing!!! When I made them I let the mixture sit in the fridge overnight and then the next day I made the roll ups. No matter how you make them they are amazing.

Honey Roasted Chicken Salad


This salad was very delicious! The first batch I made got eaten by my husband within a day. It was really good and I can’t wait to make it again.

Chia Peanut Butter Power Bars


I made these for my Ragnar team to enjoy while we were on our running adventure. I ate a bar before every run. They were so good. I made them for my aunt also. She really loved them.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread


These were a pleasant surprise. They are made with oatmeal instead of flour. They were really good. I highly recommend them.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust


This crust was just ok. It had potential to be better though. I think one of the big problems was we did not use the correct pan. It would have been much better with a pizza stone.

Pasta with Herbs


Who knew something so simple could be so good!!! Noodles, olive oil and herbs!!!

Now I’m not going to lie…… that is all I can think of for now 🙂 I did not make it to 8. It was fun though. I really love cooking and I will continue to cook things from pinterest. I really like making recipes once and then trying to make it my own version the second time. I’m trying to make things healthier and change my lifestyle. One month down many more to go….

Now as for my running….. I’m not able to run for a few days because I have a bum toe 🙂 I got ingrown toenails permanently removed on my right big toe. Back in July I got my left big toe done and it is so much better now. Ingrown toenails can be very painful!! So running is on hold for a few days…..


I’m signed up for the Suds Run 5K next weekend so I will be running by then 🙂

What did you make this August from Pinterest?

When is your next run?
