Hey and Happy Friday!  I hope the weekend has something fun in store for ya!

I can’t start the weekend quite yet because of a test I need to complete tonight, some job shadowing during the day, and a few other assignments I need to hit the submit button on before officially calling it the weekend.  After that, Brian and I are skiing tomorrow.  The weather here in Denver has been warm and very sunny, so it’s kind of hard for me to believe that just 2 hours away we will be in a winter wonderland.  Hoping for good skiing, though!! 🙂

OK, let’s get right into Five Things Friday!

Five Things Friday from Treble in the Kitchen

Five Things I Ate:

  • Oats cooked in Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice Tea

I simply made a concentrated version of the tea and then cooked my oats in that instead of water.  It was so delicious and added a nice spice and sweetness to the oats without any added sugar.


I feel like I have these at LEAST once a week.  Topped with peanut butter of course 😉


OK, I may have a new favorite Kombucha brand!! Rowdy mermaid is local to Boulder, CO and the flavors (while they may look a bit intimidating if you are just reading the label) are so smooth and delicious with no vinegary flavor.  Brian and his mom even enjoyed it!


  • Simple Crockpot Soup

This soup was kind of a no-recipe-throw-it-in-the-crock-pot soup 🙂  It has kale, chicken, parsnips, rutabaga, turnip, thyme, and lots of turmeric.  It turned out really tasty, so I’m thinking I need to make it again to document how I made it.


I know I mentioned this tasty meal earlier this week, but in my books it was so good it was worth mentioning again!

Five Workouts I Did:

  • Taught Bodypump
  • Ran with Bernie
  • Total Strength Group Fitness Class
  • Tabata (this morning!)
  • CorePower Yoga’s CoreCardio Circuit

It’s like a circuit boot camp class, so it VERY different from anything that they currently offer.  The class was totally up my ally and a great workout!  I can’t wait to go back again so I can write up a full review for all of you.

Five Things Making Me Happy:

  • The weather!!! Guys it was 74 degrees here yesterday.  I have been making a point to get outside a little bit each day and it has been wonderful 🙂

Walking Bernie

  • Skiing tomorrow.  Tomorrow I am taking my 3rd and final lesson of the year, so I’m hoping to leave feeling very confident and ready to go out on my own! (I’m a very timid skier!!)
  • Friends are in town! We have a couple of friends visiting from Indiana, so I’m looking forward to kicking back and relaxing with them after I get all my school stuff done today.
  • Running season!! This week I signed up for a half marathon in May and a 10k for Brian and I to run together in May.  With all of the nice weather here, I’m really looking forward to training for these races with Bernie.
  • Job shadowing.  I am loving getting out of my apartment and getting some practical experience under my belt.

Posts I Have Loved:

Alright, friends! That’s all I have for today.  Have a stellar weekend and I’ll catch ya next week!
