Busy Little Bee…

Hello my loves! I need to get back into my blogging groove…I can’t believe that it has been a week since I last posted…oops!

I have been having a great week which included spending time with my family…helped my niece and little sister with homework…little sis had to use the word RUN in a sentence…Too cute!


And of course resisting temptation while I was at my dad’s house. You guys might remember that his wife owns a cake/cupcake business….

Okay okay…I did enjoy a couple of bites of THIS one since it WAS a rainbow cookie cupcake!


I also reunites with an old friend…YUP they FOUND my car! but I didn’t take it back…I got used to not having a car and really don’t want the hassle. I already made my peace with not having a car 6 months ago when she was stolen but it IS nice to know that she is okay.


I also had some yummy fruit…LIMONSILLO! These are very popular in Dominican Republic. “Limoncillo or kenepas are small and green skin with a large pit and the meat like that of a grape, the size of a limonsillo is like a large grape and they are not related to citrus or limes or taste nothing like it.”


I have enjoyed some yummy eats too…here are some highlights

Apple cooked in cinnamon and splenda over 1% cottage cheese with my usual cafe con leche


Oat Bran with Blueberries and Peanut Butter


Spicy PB whole wheat pasta with veggies…


Blueberry Pancakes with PB and Lite Syrup


My dad made the most amazing spicy shrimp!!!! IT WAS DEELISH!!!!!


Have I mentioned that they opened a Subway Restaurant, 2 blocks from my house???? I am one happy girl! Veggie Delight Sammie…


My workouts have been going great! I started week 9 of Turbo Fire this morning, I am making some modifications since my race is on Sunday and I don’t want to over do it. This morning I did the HIIT 15 workout and I Want Those Arms Chapter 1 and 2. I took it easy on my lower body since my legs are a tad tight from my run ayer…the hills are killing me but you gotta do what you gotta do!

Have a great day loves!!!!!



  1. Wow I can't believe they found your car after all this time! I'm glad she is okay. Those cupcakes look amazing!

  2. I can't believe they found your car! Your little sis is adorable! I know what you mean about blogging. I took a few days off, and while it was nice, I feel like I need to get back into the swing of things!

  3. I was wondering if you were going to take her back or not.

    I love the sentence your little sister wrote, too cute!

  4. aww i love kid's sentances they write! so cute

  5. yum yum yum! hope you have a fabulous week!

  6. We are within walking distance of a Subway, and it's fabulous. Whenever I don't want to cook, we walk there (not often, but still, it happens!).

    I'm glad they found your car, and good for you for continuing to go without it. I mean, if you don't need one, why have one?! I'll be riding my bike to work starting in October so my little Civic will have a nice hibernation.

    THanks for informing me about the limonsillo. I've heard chefs talk about it before but never knew what it was!

  7. Thats great news on your car! Where did they find it? When I come up can your dad make that shrimp for me along with cupcakes for dessers? Just saying.....

    I wish I could like Subway but think I went into too many gas stations that had Subway when I was younger and the smell still lingers with me.

  8. rainbow cookie cupcake!?!? oh man!!

    they found your girl?? glad she is ok, so what happens, can you sell it and make some money?

  9. ahh I am so glad you are still liking and doing turbo fire!!! thats so amazing, I love chalene still even tough I am not doing the workouts!

  10. holy crap they found your car! haha that's friggn awesome though :)

    your family are quiteeee the chefs! the rainbow cake cupcake sounds to dieee forrrrrrr

  11. I am in shock that they found your car after all this time! But kind of proud of you for not taking it back. That takes a lot of guts chica.

    You are the best aunt/sister ever! Have I mentioned that recently?

    Rainbow cookie cupcake. I am drooling.

  12. I can't believe they found your car! That is amazing!

    I'm so excited for your RACE!!! Can you believe it's only your third one? Your like an old pro now.

  13. Hey doll! You're back!! Little lady is so cute- of course Mariette runs ;)

    I want to try some of those fruits- get a few ready for me in a month, OK?

  14. Duh- I mean little sister, but I always type little lady. Oy- it's late!

  15. Wow Im out of touch, i didn't realize your car was stolen. I would have given it back sooner :) :P

    Those shrimps look amazing! But hey, what what what, no Roman Beans. Whats going on?

  16. Yay for finding your car!

  17. So what did you end up doing with the car? Did insurance already pay you for it?

    That is so weird that it turned up after six months!

    Hope you had a great weekend!

  18. I can't believe they found your car. Def wasn't expecting that. I can't believe someone stole it in the first place. Parking in the city is awful so I would have given it up too!
