On a Whim

According to FreeDictionary.Com the definition of "on a whim" is 1. A sudden or capricious idea; a fancy. 2. Arbitrary thought or impulse. And that's exactly how the day went!

On a whim the hubs decided to race THIS RACE on Saturday and left at 4:30am this morning! (which means I was up late booking all this accommodations)- 4hrs sleep not good. eek!


 On a whim I decided to more than just get highlights at my hair appointment today......BANGS! Do I look 5 years old? haha.
hello bangs?!?!

bye bye roots

On a whim I bought these even though I don't eat tofu.


On a whim I craved Pad Thai and combined my recently bought noodles with peanut flour, coconut PB, and Red chili flakes. Creamy goodness with kick!


looks horrible, taste delicous!

On a whim I opened up my bottle of Rose from Truett Hurst Winery (our favorite vineyard we visited in CA). I poured a glass and sat in my big comfy chair to blog.


On a whim I decided to do the Coconut Peanut Butter giveaway from Tropical Traditions.

To win:
1. leave a comment telling me anything you've done "on a whim."
2. Follow Tropical Traditions on Twitter (@troptraditions)
3. Tell me what you use the Coconut PB for?

Well, it looks like a solo weekend for me again, this calls for lots of baking!

Happy almost Friday!
Cheers,
LC

Love the hair.. you look darling! And your hair is so healthy too!

I want that recipe for those noodles! I have had some sitting in my fridge forever!

P.S. you don't have to enter me in the contest since I already have one and I'd like for someone else to win!

Steelhead!! That's only a few hours away from me! :) It's my friend's favourite 70.3,

YUM! Not so sure about the tofu noodles but the sauce sounds delish! and wine & blogging...perfect!

On a whim I signed up for a 10k race last year! (and I'm thinking about doing it again soon!!)

Kassi said...

Followed on twitter!

Kassi said...

I think I would use it first in a stir-fry, too! That looks really tasty.

Kassi said...

Aaand... I subscribed to their newsletter. Also, I like your hair too! It's cute :)

Kelly said...

On a whim I've chopped all my hair off and decided to run a half marathon the night before the race (I was already training for one several weeks later). I want to win so I can try this stuff. It looks amazing!

Woman! Making us work for that Coconut PB! ;) I'm game...

1) On a whim two years ago, I woke up feeling the need to get away from Atlanta for a vacation. Randomly chose Denver and went by myself for a week. Changed my life...the trip convinced me to move there!

2) Follow @troptraditions on twitter.... check

3) Uses: What couldn't I use this stuff for? Spreads on some rice cakes, making protein bites, granola, you name it!

4) Subscribe to TT's website newsletter... check

There! I toss my hat into this ring! :)

on a whim, I took the kids out to Stinson Beach for the nite last nite. and glad i did;-)

Alisa said...

You look great with bangs, so cute!

And those noodles look good to me! Anything peanut and noodles is perfect in my book.

YOur hair is fabulous!! Beautiful! Well, on a whim I cut my very long hair up to my chin about nine months ago. It was my attempt to grow out some of the henna I had done. Oh, how I regret that oh the whim decision of mine! Oh well..it is growing. I'm a long hair kind of lady, for sure!

Shannon said...

i'm not on twitter, but i would totally love to try this stuff! thai would be my first move, but i'm sure it would end up anywhere :) ooh, i bet it would be awesome in granola!

Kelly @StrawberriesandFreckles said...

Kelly @StrawberriesandFreckles said...

I would use the coconut peanut butter for baking raw desserts or simply put it in sandwiches..oh the possibilities are endless!

Mo said...

I was thinking I'd use the coconut PB on toast, but first, I think I'd copy your Pad Thai recipe! Also, it would make a heck of a peanut sauce.

Jenn said...

Coconut peanut butter!!! Yum!

Your bangs look great. You wear them much better than I do. ;-)

On a whim a week and a half ago we decided to go camping.

Megan D said...

Cute hair!!
Something I've done on a whim was to cut my hair super short... I ended up not liking it actually so now I'm letting it grow :)

Megan D said...

And I would use this on top of oatmeal or maybe to make some delicious granola bars/cookies!

Eden said...

Earlier this year, on a whim, I decided to take part in a cancer fundraiser where I shaved my head bald. Raised around $1200 though, so it was worth it!

Fit Chick in the City said...

The bang are super cute!

Thanks for the great giveaway! 10 years ago, I decided to sell my car on a whim and move to NYC.Three days later my car was sold and by the end of the week NYC was my new home.

Coconut Peanut butter would be the perfect addition to my post run coconut water/peanut butter smoothie.

I'm following Tropical Traditions and subscribed to their newsletter.

Dorry said...

Your haircut and color looks great! Such a great feeling to have a new do. :)

We do a lot of traveling on a whim - in Tahoe now because we found cheap airfare and we are staying with friends.

The bangs are so cute! I went really dark with my hair last week on a whim. It's still weird to look in the mirror.

Lindsay @ http://pancakesnpajamas.blogspot.com/ said...

I'd use coconut peanut butter in granola. I bet that would rock!

Sue said...

I've done that - cut off my hair on a whim. Yours is way cuter than mine was! I have driven to Arizona to visit my sister and her family on a whim...

Thanks for the giveaway.

On a whim, I ended up cutting my hair, and later regretted it. I can't stand my hair short.

On a whim I decided to take my Beau, 6 kids and the dog camping and trail running in the mountains. Whew was I tired. May not do that whim again. Would rather have done Steelehead. ;)

Kristina said...

yummy shirataki! And the bangs are cute! I told you this before- yer gorgeous, gal!!!!

Protein Girl said...

Hi! I love your hair color! It is so vibrant; you look stunning! I make "Thai inspired" dishes ALL THE TIME using Davinci Sugar Free Coconut Syrup, chili flakes and any veggie I have! Love it! Love 'miracle noodles' or the house Tofu ones as well! So healthy! I use them for everything- quiche, kugel,latkes, spaghetti, fettucini, primavera, sweet desserts etc! Currently would love to sautee them with some chicken breast strips, chili flakes, low sodium soy, Walden Farms SF coconut, a splash of cottage cheese and spices! YUM!
