Weekend Wrap-Up in Pictures

in Other

With the Christmas season in full-swing I have been busy lately, and this weekend was no different.  My brain has pretty much turned to mush after being on the go for the past 48 hours so let’s keep this simple for the sake of both of us.  Sometimes I just do not feel like being super wordy, and I am sure that sometimes you just don’t feel like reading a novel.  But do you know what I do like?  Pictures!  Can we all agree that pictures are good?  Yes?  Okay, great because following is a wrap-up of my weekend in pictures courtesy of my non-iPhone camera phone ;).

Cardio workouts Friday and Saturday.

    Looks like your December is off to a great start!! I have been so busy lately too – I love the holiday season but there’s so many things to do! lol I need to try to get in more workouts – I feel like that’s what keeps getting cut out of my day which is bad!

      It is so tough to get everything on our “to do” lists done during this busy time..but all we can do is our best! :)

  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies December 9, 2013, 6:40 am

    sounds like a great weekend! Mine was lazy, like all my weekends tend to be :) I woke up a to a LOT of snow today, so I guess there’s no denying it’s winter.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 1:47 pm

      Yes, we got our first snowfall here and it was a very rude awakening for me when I walked out to my car this morning and had to spend 5 minutes brushing my car off :(.

  • Jackie December 9, 2013, 7:36 am

    I cleaned out my pantry and loved it! I feel so much more organized!

      Isn’t it amazing how great being organized can make us feel? I found SO much stuff in my freezer that I didn’t even realize I had! ;)

  • Marie @ Little Kitchie December 9, 2013, 8:51 am

    Now all I can think about is that beet burger – that sauce on it sounds incredible!

      It was SO good!! I cannot wait to eat it again!

  • Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie December 9, 2013, 8:51 am

      It was good! I grew up taking dance so I absolutely loved it :).

  • Dixya @ Food, Pleasure, and Health December 9, 2013, 9:02 am

    that burger looks so good. We had a huge snow storm this weekend so my weekend involves basically eating and sleeping.

      Snow storms really know how to force you to catch up on eating and sleeping don’t they? Granted it also forced me to come up with A LOT of new recipes!! ;)

  • Ang @ Nutty for Life December 9, 2013, 9:07 am

    Wait… you like nut butters?
    Just kidding :) That beet burger looks omgamazing. I would love to see you try to recreate that! I have never thought to use beets as a burger base.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:10 pm

      I definitely SHOULD try to recreate the burger! It was SO good. And yes, I am slightly obsessed with nut butters ;).

  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl December 9, 2013, 9:40 am

    Looks like a great weekend! Love the Nutcracker… we’ve been the past couple of years, so we’re taking this year off. I had a beet burger recently at Cheesecake Factory and it was AWESOME!

      Oh, I bet their beet burger is fantastic! I’ll have to check that out. I know how you like your beets! ;)

  • Kim December 9, 2013, 10:33 am

    I love the Nutcracker! That would definitely have to put you in the holiday spirit :) My weekend was pretty mellow, but I did force myself to get out of the house to go to the gym, Target, and the dry-cleaners, haha.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:24 pm

      All of the necessities…especially Target! ;)

  • Katie @ running4cupcakes December 9, 2013, 11:55 am

    awesome weekend – love your window clings – so cute! And super jealous of your Driscolls coupons. ;)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:25 pm

      The window clings in the Target dollar section always get me!! ;) And yes, I am loving the coupons especially now that berries are becoming so costly! :(

  • Becky @ Olives n Wine December 9, 2013, 12:31 pm

    Personally, I love weekend recap posts that are mostly photos. My brain hurts too much to read on Mondays ;) I think you need to post your new breakfast cookie recipe ASAP!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:27 pm

      I hear you. Too much thinking on a Monday is NEVER good!

      And I will try my best to get that up SOON, just for you! ;)

  • Stephanie @ My Freckled Life December 9, 2013, 12:54 pm

    Looks like a great weekend!!! Grocery shopping, blogger meet-ups and the Nutcracker?? Some of my favorite things! But I hope this week is a little less crazy for you – you definitely deserve a break!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:28 pm

      It was a GREAT weekend! And thanks, I sure hope so too! I need a breather ;).

  • Sabrina @ Nutritiously Sweet December 9, 2013, 2:14 pm

    So much yumminess! And wow I could totally use some new body sprays/ scents. I’ve been using the same scent for a while. Haven’t used Victoria Secrets products since last year! Have a good week :)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:28 pm

      I LOVE the VS scents…especially when I get a good deal!!

  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats December 9, 2013, 2:17 pm

    Loving all your weekend snaps! 6 new recipes is impressive! I thought that was your existing breakfast cookie so can’t wait for this new recipe it looks so pretty :)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 9, 2013, 2:29 pm

      It looks similar…but definitely some new, wintery flavors!! :)

  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate December 9, 2013, 9:00 pm

    So jealous you went and saw The Nutcracker! How did you like it?!

      It was great! Now I am even MORE in the spirit for Christmas :).

  • sharsti December 9, 2013, 10:44 pm

    wow I need to be so much better about the produce section, your cart is impressive! I love new lotions and sprays, so lucky!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 10, 2013, 9:10 pm

      I always laugh at my cart when I leave the produce section because it is always half full just from that. It’s great…but pricey!! :/

  • Jessie December 10, 2013, 3:50 am

    6 new recipes – oh girl you spoil us =) Looking forward to hearing all about them.

      Yeah..I was a little ambitious this weekend. Maybe too ambitious! ;)

  • Danica @ It's Progression December 10, 2013, 11:12 am

    I can’t order from Swanson Vitamins without getting a new jar of nut butter – the shelf dedicated to them in my pantry is always full haha

      This was my first time ordering from them and definitely won’t be the last. It was priced a lot cheaper than in the stores!
