Looking Ahead!

What a busy week it's been. On top of my 5 regular classes, I ended up subbing 2 extra Body Pump classes for an instructor who is out of town. So today after I taught, I needed an epsom salt bath like woah. I think I did the hardest lunge track ever, two days in a row!

I made some Valentine's Day cupcakes to bring to work, and I had so much left-over hot pink frosting that I made some heart-shaped sugar cookies with a new pack of cookie cutters I picked up at The Chopping Block in Lincoln Square. The set of 5 cookie cutters was just about $6, and they come in a great little tin to keep them together.

Looking forward to a new episode of "Once Upon A Time" tonight, I think! They've had a bit of a hiatus the past few weeks and I'm hitting withdrawal mode.

And guess what!? I JUST discovered Downton Abbey! Can you believe it's taken so long? I'm on season 1, and I'm hooked. I've been watching it in the kitchen while chopping veggies for the week. I need to get me some cute dainty gloves and a hat, STAT.

Did anyone check out the Prabal Gurung for Target line? It came out this morning, and from browsing online, there area quite a few great pieces.

I really love this dress on the left. Not sure if it'd work for me, but super cute. 

These shoes are only $29.99. Size 7, please!

And quite a few others worth a try-on. I didn't stop by today, trying to resist the urge to spend money. But if I'm not too busy tomorrow at work, maybe I'll take a little lunch-time walk and see what's left. 

On the menu this week: 
Monday - Spaghetti, simple, easy, cheap. I'm planning on a slightly hectic day at work. 

Tuesday - Chicken Coconut Curry from TJs - they were sampling a new frozen dinner, and this one was delish. I never feel bad about a frozen dish from Trader Joe's because they're usually not crazy with the sodium and on the healthier side. Not your typical frozen meal, for sure!

Wednesday - Turkey and Pesto Paninis - keeping it simple this week is key! PLUS, I have to keep dinner tonight quick because guess what premieres...Season 4 of "My Strange Addiction" on TLC. Outside of teaching group fitness, I work in documentary/reality television, and I did the casting for this series. It's weird, I wouldn't suggest it for your kids, but please tune in!

Thursday - Valentines Day, but because of boyfriend's class schedule, we're staying in with this mushroom, leek and fontina frittata

Friday - We'll see how we feel!

I hope you're all able to finish up your weekend with some time to relax

I "found" Downton Abbey a few weeks ago and devoured season 1 over a weekend. It's totally addicting!
