My Coffee Maker Exploded

My how time flies. Harry is already coming up on his 3 month celebration and I can’t believe it. He has changed so much during his short time here and I fall more in love with him every day. Trying to get all the snuggles and kisses in before heading back to work in 2 weeks. I’ve finally accepted the fact that I will be going back to work but am a ton more stressed knowing we have the best nanny in the world (Aunt Alex, you are the best).

Harry met Santa again on Sunday and it was so fun. He asked for milk, books, and a couple new outfits because he is growing like a weed and all his outfits are too short.

My little baby ❤

So, I was trying to clean our coffee maker Monday with water and vinegar. As I was dusting some shelves I heard a loud pop. I looked at the counter and the vinegar water was spewing out everywhere. Not sure what happened but the coffee maker is kaput. It was like 12 million years old though so it had a good life. Maybe Santa will bring us a new one hehe.

Now that it’s been a few weeks I pretty much feel back to normal. I have been working out consistently and even getting in a few runs. Last weekend I met up with my pal Katie and we got in almost 6 miles before the sun came up. It was cold but so worth it. It really felt great to get out and get some miles in. Spring trail races, we are coming for you!

Running early means getting lattes. One of my fave lattes is from Alma in Northeast MSP. SO tasty. I got the large because duh and drank it all by the time I got home. No shame here. Sam says I have no self control lately. He’s right. But I’m enjoying myself.

Love lattes

As for the gym, I’ve been going about 3-5 times a week. For sure on the weekends but Sam has been a champ and lets me go at night when he gets home from work. Here’s a fun workout I’m doing Sunday. Join me.

1 mile as fast as possible

100 Box Jumps

100 Thrusters

100 Squat Throws

1 mile as fast as possible

Can’t wait to get crushed…wahoo!

Also, have I told you how obsessed I am with my instant pot. Best invention ever. And you can use it for everything. Last weekend I made barbacoa beef and it literally just fell apart when I touched it with a fork. So tender. So juicy. Better and cheaper than Chipotle. I have been eating it in taco salads but yesterday I got creative and put it over mashed potatoes with cheddar cheese and sour cream. LOL. It was fantastic.

Now lastly, I know people are obsessed with Halo Top ice cream but I’m not willing to pay like $7 for a pint of the stuff. Funny, while shopping at Aldi Saturday night, I came across the ice cream section and saw Aldi’s brand of Halo Top. I believe it was about $3  and they had a ton of flavors. I got mint chocolate chip and it tasted just like a grasshopper! I did have to let it thaw a bit cuz it was so frozen and I like my ice cream soft but heck, I’ll take it. Can’t wait to try more flavas. I’m all about saving that $$$$.

Get it.

Harry and I are off to Gma and Gpa’s today to make some truffles and candy for Sam’s sides Christmas this weekend. Yay. Harry will also be having a sleepover there Friday so Sam and I can celebrate our (4 year!!!!!) anniversary. I can’t believe it’s already been 4 years. I love him more every day 🙂

Okay, have a fab Wednesday. Love ya, bye!
