Ninja kicks + your pics

– Weekly Mexican feast with my favorite people. We dined at Blanco, I had the usual shrimp tacos, and the server also brought out two new salsas + guacamole. Be still, my chip and salsa loving heart. -Took the new pantalones for a test drive, and a big flowery headband for my little love. I’ve…

Baby smoothies

I’ve heard it said that babies will usually want to eat what the parents are eating. It made a lot of sense, but I got a glimpse the first time Liv made a grab for my salmon salad. Like the swiftest salad ninja, one second I was taking a bite, and the next, my plate…

Chili Mango Slushy

Hi friends! I apologize for the blog down time that many of you experienced yesterday. We switched my blog to a new host and server so everything will be GTG when the revamp is up next week. If you missed it, I put up a new booty burner -thank you for the awesome feedback from…

Meg: Sock Bun

As much as I love rocking a top-knot, it’s not always polished enough for dressy occasions. Here’s a simple and lovely upgrade that looks much more put together. The biggest tip I can give when trying the sock bun is to practice. You probably won’t get it perfect it the first time you try, but…

Humpday Booty Burner

Sometimes, late at night, the Pilot and I will look each other in the eyes and we know. Froyo. “Do you want to go, or you want me to?” Thank goodness BTO is open late, aaaaand they have an awesome variety of dairy-free flavors and tons of toppings. I think we’ve mastered the art of…

Focus On: Dance Trance

With all of the Focus On posts in the sea, I CAN’T BELIEVE I haven’t written one about Dance Trance. I have no idea how I skipped it- Dance Trance is one of my favorite cardio workouts!  I used to own the license to teach here in Tucson (the info on why I stopped is here).…

Healthy Baked Zucchini Sticks

Steps for trying on bridesmaid dresses: 1. Shop with the bride (of course), but also bring a friend who has a keen eye for fashion and tells you like it is. 2. Try on something that makes you feel like a cast member of Grease or West Side Story, just because you have to. (You…

Meg: Long hair. DO care.

When I’m in the chair gearing up for a haircut, the first thing I say is, “Leave the length, and trim the ends”. My hairstylist is as amazing as they come and she does a great job taking off the dried out ends and leaving as much length as she can. Back in 2009, I…

Quick shrimp and quinoa stir fry

I took about 30 minutes yesterday to prep some goodies for the week: Ballz Steamed eggs and quinoa and dinner was one of those one-pot wonders where everything came together to make a delicious, quick and satisfying meal. I just threw some ingredients into the pot, said a silent prayer to the cooking gods, and…

8/26: Video of the day

For us, the perfect Sunday is an equal mix of productive and lazy. I feel like we accomplished so much and did nothing at the same time. I didn’t take a ton of pics, but did take a video I’d love to share. I think it sums up the day perfectly: spent with the people…

8/26: Meals and Fitness for the week

Sweaty and triumphant. It wasn’t the practice 10k I had planned for, but considering I had some odds (aka excuses) working against me, I’m really happy about it. The Pilot said he’s wake up with Liv so I could go run, and when I woke up, it was 8:30. I figured since it was already…

Gina: Recent finds

I’ve been getting a little better at putting outfits together, instead of buying something just because I like it and never knowing what to wear with it (I’m looking at you, ankle boots). When I went into HM the other night, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and get some printed things,…
