Feels Like Home

Quick - relate this blog title to a special event in our life?  Andddddd.....go......  
I'll give you the answer on Monday.

Anyway~ the blog title means I am SO HAPPY to be HOME!  I had a short 3 day training trip for work, but I'm always so happy to get back home.
Here's a quick rundown of what I miss most when I'm gone:
This guy.
Bought me Autumn Flowers :)
This girl.
And this furball too.
My coupons.
My Garmin.
Healthy cooking.

Today was busy, but I was so overwhelmed with "I'm so thankful to be in my own house" feelings that it didn't matter.
I have an exam tomorrow that I need to go study for (difference between denaturation and coagulation anyone?) but I did get time to grocery shop.  Saved $80, spent $92. Are you guys out there still couponing?  I used 12 Yoplait coupons, 6 Met-Rx bar coupons, and 4 V8 coupons! :)

I also got in some wonderful interval sprints.
-1 mile warm up
-6 x 30 second sprint, 60 second recovery
-3 minute cool down

I also fixed a healthy dinner full of nutrients!  Lemon caper chicken sauteed in coconut oil with roasted red potatoes and zucchini.  And a dessert of Quaker Rice Cakes blueberry pomegrante. They were on sale! $1! 
I used BirdsEye Chef's Favorites for the potatoes.  I recieved them a while back as part of the FoodBuzz Tastemaker program.  Kyle really enjoyed them and they had a good parmesan flavor.
What do you miss most when you're away from home?

Love and sparkly red shoes,
Carissa & Kyle
