6/29: SSU Faves + Fit Mag

 It’s the weekend! Hope you have some fun things planned <3 I actually made it to Friday without having to buy more eggs, but I only had one sad and lonely egg left in the fridge. (along with protein berry oats, topped with chocolate coconut butter + coffee with coconut milk creamer and Stevia) Thank…

Mite-y

Have you tried this stuff before? Vegemite! It’s huge in Australia, and I’ve become good friends with a girl who is staying in Tucson from Australia for a while. Yesterday, I asked her if she liked Vegemite, and she said, “I have tubes of it in my room! I’ll bring you one.” Today we had…

Meg: Clutches

Clutches I’ve been tempted lately to trade in my oversized handbags to carry a clutch. Purses have always been my favorite accessories, but I’m wondering if their less complex counterpart would give my outfits a little something extra. I especially love how girly they are. What a fun way to add a bright pop of…

6/28: Tabata Thursday

*Or Tabata Wednesday and a half, but I wanted to have this up tonight for the Thursday morning early gym-goers (even though you can totally do it at home!) It was a clumsy day over here. You know, the kinda day where anything you touch seems to spontaneously erupt into flames and crumble into a…

Meg: Winged Tips

I’ve had a few people ask me how I do my eyeliner, so I put together a simple how-to. Winged tips can be an easy way to add a little vintage flare to your look, or just jazz up an overplayed eyeliner routine! What you’ll need: Eye liner- I use Mac’s Fluidline, but you can…

And then it’s over

I did something yesterday that I’ve been freaked out about for quite a few months: (still obsessed with the sweet potato brownies) went to the dentist. In the world of medical professionals, dentists freak me out the most, especially after having a really bad experience (being stabbed with the novocaine shot 8 times !!!!! for…

Reader Request: Is ZIN worth it?

Of the emails I receive, 3 topics are the most popular: -health and wellness -military life (dealing with deployments, moving, making friends, etc) and –ZUMBA! Quite a few people have asked about the Zumba licensing process, if ZIN is worth it and what to expect, so I thought it would be a fun post for…

Sweet Potato Brownies

Add natural sweetness and a boost of nutrients to your dessert when you make these sweet potato brownies. Hey! How’s your day going so far? Lots of sweet potatoes in our house lately. For Livi, for Bell and for us. 100% correct: sweet potato brownies. I’ve seen a lot of recipes for vegetables in desserts…

Calming my fears

While I was pregnant, I tried to keep my worries and stresses to a minimum, because I knew that everything I felt, Liv could feel, too. I wanted her to feel happy and safe, so even when things came up, I did what a could to take deep breaths and take action without getting too…

Make it happen

Hey! How was your weekend? Anything exciting happen? We had an awesome, restful and low-key weekend over here. Yesterday, the Pilot told me to go get a massage (twist my arm, eh?) and it was probably the best I’ve ever  had- my hair is still greasy from the oils, haha. After my experience with prenatal…

6/24: Pics from the day

Hope you all had an amazing weekend, too <3 Head’s up: Summer Shape Up week 3 workout is here! Tomorrow’s challenge: 30 minutes of HIIT! You choose the intervals, but I’ll recommend 1:30 easy, 30 seconds hard (as fast as you can), repeat for 30 minutes total. If you need to adjust the intervals from…

Dr. Seuss Hair

I’ve always thought the Pilot and I make a pretty good team, but it’s even more apparent now with a little one in the house. We don’t have to ask or say anything -we just  help each other out. He stays home with Livi on Saturday while I go to work, I’ll get to see…
