DIY Bath Bombs

Two things officially turned me into a bath person: our tub, which is much larger than any we’ve had in the past and LUSH bath bombs. It’s a huge deal, as I’ve always preferred showers, but there’s something seriously awesome about sitting in a super hot bathtub with your hair in a messy bun, a…

Mother’s Day gift ideas

Mother’s Day is a little less than two weeks away, and once again, I’m so excited to be able to spend it with the amazing women in my family. Every day I wake up so happy to be in Tucson; we’re making up for holidays and fun memories since we were stationed away for a…

Coconut fail

Coconut flour and I have never really been friends. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, and for some insane reason I keep trying to act like coconut flour can easily replace other flours. It doesn’t work. At all. I’m on a major tortilla kick -well, my whole life is a major…

Kombucha update + NEW Ab burner

I’m not going to say I wasn’t a little freaked out to taste the kombucha.  The scoby looked totally healthy with no signs of mold, but there were definitely more strands of bacteria floating around in there. It’s pretty amazing how much the liquid changes in a course of 10 days, and the new baby…

Quick toddler snacks + packaged finds

I still love making food for Liv, especially since (for now) the little lady has a huge appetite and will try anything. It’s always fun to share different things with her and see what she loves and doesn’t enjoy. As much as I like making her food, I also use some pre-made and packaged food…

Focus On: The Raw Food Diet

Raw food is sexy. [photo source] There’s really no other way to put it. Even though I’ve strayed from my mostly-raw ways of the past, it is a lifestyle that I enjoy and (for the most part) support. In this post, you’ll find more details about a high-raw life and why it didn’t really work…

PRO meals: Smoothie Packs

As I mentioned in my meal planning post, I’ve been feeling a little lackluster with dinners lately. I throw something quick in the slow cooker, or we’ll have the same things over and over again (especially since the Pilot was away). I will say that there was one lovely chicken pasta and wine night at…
