Current Marvelousness and an Albion Giveaway

Howdy, friends! It’s going to be tough, but I’m really trying to be positive today. It’s supposed to be the coldest day of the year here in Texas (low of 18 and yes, I know that doesn’t even begin to compare to what my northern friends are experiencing) and after a two week winter break, it’s back to work for me. So, I’m linking up with The Healthy Diva to bring you all of the little things getting me through a less than fun Monday.

Marvelous is having brand new riding boots to wear back to work!!! Still doesn’t make it okay I have to go back to work, though….


Marvelous is Landslide! This is an oldie, but I love this song so much and the version by Smashing Pumpkins just might be my favorite. This came on yesterday while I was enjoying my last quiet morning; (my favorite time) drinking coffee and listening to satellite radio…. the 90’s.

Marvelous is getting the house ready to sell…. one step at a time. Out with the pink and in with a little more mature bedroom! Alexis and Brad spent a good part of Monday painting her bedroom.


Marvelous is a mani/pedi! Taking off the holiday sparkle and going with a dark winter blue. Something different!


Marvelous is homemade granola bars for the kids’ after-school snacks. With M&M’s! Recipe will be up on the blog later this week.


Marvelous is signing up for the Conscious Cleanse and getting ready to healthify life a little more, after the holiday splurging and those granola bars above. I’m more than ready to renew and refresh with this “real food” detox.

Marvelous is Albion Fit. Love this brand! They have such cute, comfortable and flirty fitness and active wear. They contacted me with the opportunity to review the Retreat Tee and host a giveaway, so that one of my lucky readers could also experience the awesomeness of Albion Fit with a $50 gift card.

You can dress the tee up or down and of course, I love the thumb holes. The shirt is so comfy. Not only does it make a great shirt for going out, but it’s also comfy enough for sleep or fitness. Head on over to the Albion Fit website and checkout all of the loveliness! {Scroll to the bottom of the post for the giveaway.}

  1. Those boots rock!!– we have a bonus day tomorrow– the temp is going to be a high of -11 with wind chill of -45 BRRRRR

    • Thanks, Laura! Lucky you with the bonus day, but not so lucky with the SUPER cold weather. Thank goodness for treadmills, right?

  2. I would have to agree that marvelous in my life today is enjoying a glass of wine and watching the Bachelor! I live on the West Coast so it hasn’t aired yet… One Hour…Can’t wait!

  3. I am super excited about the Bachelor this year! Lately, I haven’t gotten too into the seasons, but I have a feeling that this one is going to be good!

  4. I think, the last amazing things in my life was to find Father Frost’s photo on my phone ;) (I am such child, I know :D) Father Frost is the Russian Santa, and quite recently it came from the hometown to mine…. It was wonderful!

  5. I’m kind of sort of obsessed w/ those boots. I absolutely love the color & length. The apple, celery & carrot fresh juice I just had @ the Dubai Airport was pretty marvelous. I’m definitely gonna have to make some at home.

  6. I had to go back to work today too – I feel ya! We are lucky with the weather so far, but I guess we will get some of the cold now too. Not amused.
    The boots are so nice!! Love them!

  7. Don’t hate me… but I’m kind of looking forward to going back to work/school today. The holidays were nice, but I definitely need a little bit of routine back in my life. Although I could do without the cold for sure… Time to start looking up vacation spots, I think :D

    PS – those boots are gorgeous! I’m such a sucker for a good riding boot.

    • Thanks, Amanda! Now I’m on the search for a great black pair. Hope you had a great day back to the ‘ol grind.

  8. Love those boots! It’s back to school for me today too (we had school Thursday last week, but a snow day on Friday), and it’s a little rough getting up this early again. It’s all good though :)
    Marvelous is my bowl of hot oats on this chilly morning! Hope you have a great Monday, Kim!

  10. those granola bars look like such a fun and healthy eat! i’ve never even heard of Albion Fit — have to check them out. my friend’s sister was a Bachelorette so i got hooked for a few seasons but missed most of the last one… he’s adorable, however, so that might have to change this time. :)

  11. Ahh I just took off my glittery holiday nail polish too in exchange for a dark purple. So sad. :(
    Those granola bars look scrumptious! Also I can’t wait for the Bachelor tonight either! Woohoo!

  12. I’ve never owned anything from AlbionFit but I love this top!

  13. I love your boots! And this giveway. good luck with the cold, I’m sending you some warmth from California!

  14. Watching the Bachelor right now! Love your boots! I need a new pair so bad! Trying to wait it out until they go on sale :-)

  15. Those boots! I love them!!
