A Time To Bee Happy

by Nicci on 12/21/2009

This time a year, I”m drinking my Emergen-c and downing cough drops, while training in the cold for this Half-Marathon.  My cousin texted me earlier tonight, about a contest he entered.  I’ve never heard of these organic cough drops, but I’m heading to the store Tuesday to find them and review them asap!  Check out this video contest Bee M.D. is hosting!!

This is my cousins video:

”Isaiah’s BFF” (he’s not aware of my blog, but I’d love for him to win this contest)

Monday’s Adventures included:

Having  a ”great” Monday…this is not normal, but  I do enjoy a good first day of the week.  I mean Christmas is 4 days away, and I’m excited to be around family and friends. Who can’t love 4 days off for Christmas and then 4 more days for New Years.


Juicy Orange + Emergen-C

Half PB sandwich (I couldn’t resist eating the other half before lunch time), grapefruit, cantaloupe.

Apple and Peanut butter


Chris speaks of pizza!  So I’m thinking (2) large slices of veggie pizza tonight from Roman’s Pizza.

(We did order pizza after I posted this: pineapple, mushroom, bell peppers, black olives)


I’d love to go run today in this nice weather, but training calls for stretching and strength.  I will be doing my Iron Yoga dvd tonight.  I actually bought this dvd back in the summer for a $1,courtesy of the Dollar Tree and never opened it, so I’m excited to try it.

TV Land:

We are hooked on Dexter Season II right now.  Happy the first two seasons are instant download from netflix but we’ll have to order Season III and have it delivered.

What’s your favorite crime show to watch?

Whose ready for Christmas, any special plans?

I can’t wait to hear how you like iron yoga! My local Lululemon store is going to be offer free iron yoga classes beginning in January.

I actually don’t watch any crime shows. I’m ready for Christmas! Just hanging out with the husband. Have a Merry Christmas!

I hope you’re feeling much better, Nikki! I can’t believe you’re training in the cold!! I couldn’t do it! I have a 10k coming up in January and I have not been able to train well.
I’m in Houston for Christmas, spending it with the in-laws! a cold front came in last night and it’s coooooold here!!! Makes Christmas perfect! :)

Haha that’s funny about the peanut butter sandwich.. I do the same thing! if I pack a sandwich I always end up busting into it early :D

Going to be a low-key Christmas this year. The boy and I are just hanging out with our cats. I need it! Happy Holidays!

Melissa December 23, 2009 at 8:44 pm

I am ready for Christmas!! I can’t wait, LOL.. I’m like a little kid :-)

By the way, I’ve never tried popchips? I’ll have to check those out.

Kristen @ Simply Savor December 23, 2009 at 8:18 pm

Emily December 23, 2009 at 9:33 am

Hope you feel better soon! Looks like you’ve got some good sources of vit C. :-)

Love Larabars. I think they are my absolute fave brand of bars.

Diana @ frontyardfoodie December 23, 2009 at 9:13 am

Oh my goodness my husband and I are ADDICTED to Dexter. We watched the first three seasons this summer but had to go through and download each episode for season four and waiting a week for them was torture! Season 4 ending is a total shocker!

Katie December 23, 2009 at 8:45 am

We just got a whole bunch of Pop Chips, too!

I like to watch Law & Order… my mom has been obsessed with it for years!

Becca December 22, 2009 at 6:39 pm

I was pretty sure we watched the first III seasons on Instant view and then/currently waiting for season IV to come in the mail.
Anywho, I KNEW you’d love it.

Ok, so what did ou think about the coconut creme Larabar? That is the only one I haven’t tried! It sounds suspect…

Mari December 22, 2009 at 6:19 pm

Yums I want pop chips, I have not seen them around…

you and my dad would get along great, he looooooves Dexter lol

Peanut Butter Bliss December 22, 2009 at 3:54 pm

I hope you feel better asap so you can train :D

Katie December 22, 2009 at 1:27 pm

I love Criminal Minds!


I love workout dvds!

Happy Tuesday,

I love Dexter! Season 4 was a TRIP! Hope your cousin wins, cause his video gave me goosebumps.

Melinda December 22, 2009 at 9:38 am

I am thinking about getting into dexter maybe. We are watching It’s always sunny in Philadelphia right now and have 2 seasons to go before we are caught up.

Dawn (HealthySDLiving) December 22, 2009 at 9:21 am

Mmm I’ve never had the coconut larabar but it sounds delicious!
I’ve yet to see an episode of Dexter…I need to get on that!

fittingbackin December 22, 2009 at 9:08 am

I still haven’t tried those popchips – they look so good though!!

Love the video – great editing! I like the transitions from b/w to color to close up and different angles – good stuff, and what a sweet story! Best of luck to him!

Crime show?! Law & Order SVU – I heart Olivia and Benson! (and munch and tutuola… however its spelled…. :) )

I love Dexter season 2 and I haven’t even seen the first season. I’m loving Criminal Minds and NCIS at the moment.

Pen December 22, 2009 at 7:55 am

That is my fav lara bar flavor! And, I LOVE Dexter! Season 3 is the best season (although, I’ve missed most of season 4, so I can’t vouch for that season…)

diana(mymarblerye) December 22, 2009 at 7:32 am

I’m so behind on dexter it’s sick! BTW I love that flavor of lara bar! Veggie pizza is too good…especially with pineapple. Enjoy your 8 days off these next 2 weeks..JEALOUS!

Morgan December 22, 2009 at 6:38 am

I LOVE Castle, it’s so funny!
I have Iron Yoga too, but I haven’t done it in awhile, I think you’ve inspired me!

Lee December 22, 2009 at 6:23 am

Don’t get sick! Take care of yourself, girl.

I just finished Season 3 of Dexter. It started a little slow, but got really good.

katie December 21, 2009 at 11:31 pm
