Yoga or Wine?

I am convinced that the only thing better than a glass of wine after a long day of work is a nice yoga sesh.

Tonight, I tried a new to me routine, a 20 minute deep stretch routine by Hilaria Baldwin.

Not only did it get me out of my post-work grump, but it also help to stretch out body parts that were a little sore after this mornings WOD.

Double win for Yoga!

Just Call Me Mrs. Jara

Look what came in the mail today guys!


It’s official. . . new social security card and all.  I am Ashley Abbett Jara, or Ashley Nichole Jara, depending on what you’re looking at.  Uppsy.

But either way, this was SUCH a relief after what felt like months of trying to get this name change process rolling.  Mini celebration for this girl!  Break out the sparkling water . . . we’re gettin’ fancy tonight.

And speaking of tonight

Breaking Out the Crock Pot


I broke out the crock pot for the first time tonight.  In hopes that Zach will have a healthy, warm meal, and amazing smelling home when he gets back tomorrow (about 6ish), I brought out the big guns.


If you follow me on Pinterest  (which you totally should…I’m totally becoming a pro guys ;), you saw that I’ve been searching for soup inspiration and dinner ideas the past few days.

Well I took what I found and made quite a good lookin’ meal for tomorrow.  Now it just has to sit in the fridge and I’ll let it cook on low all day tomorrow.

I’ll have the recipe for you tomorrow after we try and and can verify it’s tastiness!

Dinner Rut

You guys — I’m having the SAME EXACT dinner I had last night. . .

That’s right, Panera.  Just another reason it’s a good thing Zach comes home tomorrow.

So if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to heat up my soup and relax with some Kendra on Top.

Don’t judge, I gotta fit in my last bit of single time…going out in style here.

Question of the night: What is your routine after a particularly stressful day at work?

  1. Few things:
    1) I love Kendra and I’ve heard of that show. If I could watch that it would definitely be my guilty pleasure. 🙂
    2) LOVE the crockpot, that meal looks awesome! I made some crockpot black beans last night which I then used in my lunch today. Tonight I will be doing a crockpot oatmeal!
    3) How do you post the link for people to follow you on Pinterest? For some reason that doesn’t seem to be working for me.

    My routine after a stressful day at work is silence at home, snuggling with the cat (when she lets me), and taking a bath. It’s wonderful.

  2. I love Kendra! Also I vote yoga AND wine. Tonight I’m going to yoga at a brewery, so if there’s gluten free, it’ll be yoga and beer for me 🙂

  3. There’s nothing wrong with eating the same thing two days in a row! Or else there’s something wrong with me because I make crock pot meals that last a whole week!
    After a stressful day at work I try to get in a work out which always seems to help. On the REALLY bad days I tend to be too upset to exercise, in which case I get a glass of wine and watch Hulu or Netflix. 🙂
