  • 1 Thing I’m Looking Forward to Trying:

Crossfit!  After hearing so many mixed reviews about this workout, I am excited that a Crossfit Box has finally opened up in my hood.  As they’re running free trial sessions all through January, I will definitely be giving it a shot sooner rather than later…stay tuned for my opinion about it!

What’s your favorite chocolate?

What’s the last movie you see (or the next you plan on seeing)?

and WAIT a minute..wait a miiiiiiiiiiiinute…I must try those new kitkats?!?!!?


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:03 am

I’ll definitely post about my experience at Crossfit :)!


Parita @ myinnershakti January 18, 2013 at 6:35 pm

All of this pins made me laugh! Thanks for that!

And my favorite chocolate of all time has to be peanut M&Ms. But nowadays I stick to 85% dark chocolate…the perfect after dinner treat!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:05 am

85%?? You are my hero- 72% is just about the most I can handle before it stop beings enjoyable!


Sam @ Better With Sprinkles January 18, 2013 at 7:08 pm

That last pin = 100% true! And I pretty much want everything listed in regards to the chocolate…I don’t even know how to pick a favourite chocolate. Pretzel M&Ms, Reese’s PB cups, dark chocolate. chocolate truffles…it just depends on my mood! (Yes, my mood dictates not if I eat chocolate, but what kind of chocolate I eat. Addicted).


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:06 am

Hahah looks like we share many favorites! Another one to add to the list is chocolate-covered pretzels!


Meghan @ After the Ivy League January 18, 2013 at 7:25 pm

I had a terrible day at the office yesterday, so I watched Office Space to cheer me up. Always does the trick!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:06 am

Hope you had a better Friday 🙂 !


Liz @ I Heart Vegetables January 18, 2013 at 7:56 pm

Ohh have fun trying crossfit! I tried it once! It was definitely different from my regular workout, but really cool!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:06 am

It sounds a bit scary but I guess every workout deserves a fair chance ;)!


Amanda @ .running with spoons. January 18, 2013 at 9:06 pm

!!! What!? Cookies and cream KitKat?! Where can I find this gem? KitKat seriously has to be one of my favorite chocolate bars and I’d love to try that new flavor; I just hope it doesn’t contain traces of peanuts. Oh, and being stocked with chocolate is never a bad thing 😉 Neither was the last movie I watched! I saw Silver Linings Playbook in theaters and really enjoyed it, but I have to agree that sometimes the old-school ones are best. Center Stage, Save the Last Dance, and Coyote Ugly? Guilty pleasures for sure.

Happy Friday, Khushboo!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:08 am

Haha that was my reaction too- we found them in London! And thank you for reminding me about Save the Last Dance & Coyote Ugly- both never get old either :)!


Alex @ therunwithin January 18, 2013 at 9:32 pm

I having been digging super dark chocolate, one of my favorite things


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:08 am

Dark choc is the best!


Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table January 18, 2013 at 10:45 pm

That first pin is SO TRUE. I still have no idea why I had to take Calculus or Geometry.


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:09 am

Nerd alert but I actually loved Geometry and Calculus haha *insert embarrassed smiley*


Brittany January 18, 2013 at 11:29 pm

Bahah to the FB pic, so true!! I always hope that I will have hundreds of updates! Never happens! Never Been Kissed was one of my favorites, I had the biggest crush on the man teacher! He was hot..haha.


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:10 am

I would never date a teacher but if any of them looked like him, I would definitely have to rethink that ;)!


Ameena January 19, 2013 at 3:37 am

This one girl at work kept sneezing and after #4 I was thinking, “Wow, she really needs to stop now. This is getting ridiculous.”

So funny.

Have a great weekend!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:18 am

Haha I start to feel awkward because I don’t know whether I’m expected to keeping “blessing” the other person ha!


Miss Polkadot January 19, 2013 at 5:04 am

Haha, agreed with all pins! Does it make anybody else feel better, too, when they notice they’re not the only one doing/thinking these things? Seriously, all of these e-cards have made me feel a lot more normal already ;).

Lindt 90 % is my favourite chocolate and their Chili variety is a nice treat every now and then, too.

I’m excited to go to the cinema with my friends on Monday and I picked Silver Linings. Luckily, nobody disagreed with my choice – fingers crossed it’s a good one!

Enjoy your weekend, girl!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:22 am

Enjoy Silver Linings- I’ve heard great things about the movie!


Honey What's Cooking January 19, 2013 at 11:10 am

Couldn’t stop laughing at the Facebook image… totally ME! it sucks. 🙂 Last new movie I saw was jab tak hai jaan. Hoping to see a new one in the theater tomorrow. Favorite chocolate… I eat the healthier kinds, but my all time favorite is probably almond joy, and gertrude hawk nut clusters.
Have a great weekend K.


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 11:29 am

I’ve never tried Almond Joy but given it’s a combo of almonds & chocolate, I’m almost certain I’d love it 🙂


Shreya @ rushofendorphins January 19, 2013 at 1:47 pm

Kit kat cookies and cream?! Must be crazy good!!

I love the classic kitkat and snickers, but lately I’ve tried dagoba’s chai chocolate and it is to die for!

Have a great weekend love!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Chai chocolate sounds awesome- love the combo of choc & cinnamon!


Katy January 19, 2013 at 2:39 pm

You should definitely try Crossfit! It’s so much fun! I go occasionally but not that often because it’s super expensive. I do similar workouts on my own though!


Khushboo January 19, 2013 at 4:11 pm

I’m loving the efficiency aspect of Crossfit- quick yet effective!


Sara @ Nourish and Flourish January 20, 2013 at 12:31 pm

I almost fell out of my chair when I scrolled past the new Toblerone bar!!! I’m a HUGE fan of all things Toblerone (especially the cute minis!), and don’t think I can wait another day to try this. I sure hope it’s available in the U.S., because my search officially begins tomorrow. 😉 As for my favorite chocolate? There’s no way I can pick just one, but a few of my stand-by’s include: Lindt sea salt/dark, Lindt Lindor truffles, Ghiradhelli Sea Salt Soiree, and Reece’s peanut butter cups. Give me any chocolate, though, and I’m a happy girl. 🙂

Do I spy a slice of cheesecake in the Sundance Cafe pic? Yum! The three throwback movies you watched last week are a few of my favorites–especially Never Been Kissed. What ever happened to Drew Barrymore? She was going strong in the 90’s, but I haven’t seen her in a movie in years.

I’m excited to hear about your Crossfit adventures. I’ve been wanting to try it for a year or so, but keep chickening out. I think 2013 is the year it will happen, though!

Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! <3 xoxo


Khushboo January 20, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Looove Drew Barrymore too- she seems like someone who would be equally fun in real life! And that is a slice of raspberry cheesecake- I’m tempted to called it the best cheesecake I’ve ever eaten :)!


Tara @ Sweat like a Pig January 20, 2013 at 5:46 pm

YUM! Everything looks delicious! I looove 10 Things. Heath Ledger is from my hometown so I am biased, but I just think he is adorable in that movie.

Crossfit??? Uh oh, soon you will be in the Paleo cult 😉 Haha


Khushboo January 20, 2013 at 9:31 pm

Hahah I will not go to Dark Side (=Paleo)…I will not ;)!


Tessa @ Amazing Asset January 20, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Ahahahhaa so many of these pins are GREAT! I loved the “k” one, so so true! I do not like when people text it to me, I feel so insulted for some reason, like I am wasting their time when that is in fact 100% absurd lol.
The bless you one is hilarious too, after awhile I am just like… stop please ha.
Some of these dishes are looking mighty tasty woman, as always! I hope you are enjoying the weekend love!


Khushboo January 20, 2013 at 9:33 pm

My mom is guilty of using “k”- it drives me NUTS! 😀


P January 21, 2013 at 5:44 am

Those are so the definitions of Nutella and study. Although Peanut Butter could probably have the same definition 😛


Khushboo January 21, 2013 at 8:52 am

Hahah agreed….carbs were made for peanut butter ;)!
