Snow day

Davey and I wanted to get some pictures in the snow for Christmas cards.
Twas yet another fail.
Not only was it freakin cold, but this Rexburg wind is oh so not forgiving.
Take a gander

Isn't david just rockin that peacoat? mmm :)


check out my awesome back combing job! yeaah!

I love it when I match slug bugs. 
We did get one that we liked.
If you're special you just might get your very own Olsen Christmas card! 

Happy Monday!

This always happen to me

I ALWAYS get sick during the holidays. 
Boooooo
On the bright side of things, I gave in and started decorating for Christmas early. I couldn't help it. It has looked liked Christmas time here in Rexburg since end of of October! I mean really, it went from this-






to this in like 3 days time.





But really, we are not complaining. This is DEF my fav time of the year. 
As far as our plans for el Dia de Gracias, D-boy and I are chillin here in the berg mostly because as the newest sandwich maker-er I got stuck working the whole week! Lamespice. But it should be fun, we have our whole week planned christmas shopping, baking and a whole lot of catching up on sleep. 
Here is some snap shots of our christmas decorating/shopping. 

Can we just talk about how the wreath just screams JESSICA!?


Wreath, Get on my door!


At K-MART they have this cute crafty-ish tree. Not my style, but really, how adorable?







Oh hay! Look at me posing in my rad pea-coat next to the awesome craft tree!

In the meantime, I will be trying really really hard to enjoy football with the hubby, sip on hot tea (caffeine-free duh) to soothe my sore throat and watch the snow falling beautifully outside my window.

Another perfect Sunday afternoon

De Mudder N’ Law

Is the name of my new FAVORITE sandwich.

 I got a new job couple weeks ago at GATOR JACKS.

The new store opens up in Rexburg December 1.

Y'all should come in and try some gator bites or a yummy sandwich.

Seriously, they're delish, cheap and somewhat healthy.

Check out the menu below (:

300 Spartan Cross-fit Challenge

What is it?

25-Pull ups
50-dead-lifts (135 lb bar)
50-push-ups
50-box jumps
50-floor wipers (135 lb bar)\
50-  One arm Clean and Press 25 reps each arm (35 lb dumb bell)
25- Pull ups


The Challenge? Complete each exercise as FAST as you can! 
David did this workout every other day on his mission and lemme tell ya, he was ripped! 
I wanted to challenge myself and see where my fitness level was so we did this at the gym yesterday.

Just so you know, I cut the weight in half and simplified a few of the exercises. 

For example: 
The pull ups I completed on an assisted pull ups machine.
I used a 60 lb bar for the dead-lifts and the floor wipers.
I did the push ups on my knees and
For the one arm clean and press I used a 15 lb dumb bell

I finished in 22:51 secs. My goal was to finish in at least 30 min. I have NEVER been so wiped out in my entire life after a workout. Hands down one of the toughest workouts I have ever done. 

This morning I woke up in so much "good" pain. I could not even extend my arms my muscles were so tight. 
We're incorporating this bad-A workout it in our new fitness program each week. 

You guys should try it. I dare you!
