Make your own takeout

Hi friends! How’s your day going?

Huge congratulations to my friends who ran the Boston Marathon this morning! Did you, or anyone you know, run today?? I’m so so excited for Sarah, Tina, Janae and Kristin; you are amazing. <3

it’s been an interesting afternoon over here. The Pilot is home sick with food poisoning -I hate that he feels so terrible- and my eyes are bothering me, so I’m in glasses while tears run down my face. Let’s see how spin class goes haha.

At least breakfast was a win,

Pancakes  1 of 1 11

(oat banana blender pancakes!)

BODYPUMP was a beast -a fun beast, but I’m always so sore after a new release!- and Liv and I had a great morning together at her gymnastics class, hitting up Better Buzz and making Play Doh sculptures outside. 

Dinner was pretty glorious last night, too. 😉 

I’ve been really hankering for Chinese food lately, so I added cashew chicken to this week’s meal plan. It’s so easy to make, often using ingredients we already have on-hand, and a healthier version of takeout. While getting takeout is always fun, it is nice to have a say in the ingredients and sodium content of your food. Here’s the quick recipe if you want to give it a try! We also had some not-fried quinoa, which Liv surprisingly LOVED. Note to make it more often!

Traveling misadventures + Hi from Arkansas

livi-at-airport-with-tom.JPG

Hi friends! How’s the morning going?  We are in Little Rock, Arkansas! We came here to visit the Pilot’s family, and meet our new niece, Nylah. We can’t wait to see everyone! It feels so great to be here, and even better after a crazy night of travel. (I’ve always been obsessed with the tall, […]

Twice-baked sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts hash

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Liv and I have been playing nurse to the pups; they’re still moving a little slowly after their dental cleaning yesterday. Poor girls. Hoping they’re back to their spunky selves soon. Instead of a picture of them looking tired and forlorn, here are some succulents: Last night was gloriously […]

“No Place Like Orange” workout

+ Friday Faves!  Hi! Happy Friday! Any fun plans for the weekend? We have lots of holiday cheer on the agenda: zoo lights, cookie decorating party, holiday party, and getting ready for Tucson travel adventures. Here are some faves from the week and around the web! As always, I love to hear your faves, too, […]

Fitness Instructor Cliches

Hi guys! How’s your day going? So happy you liked the pizza/flatbread recipe! Let me know if you give it a try. The past few days have been interesting. I’ve had to avoid the temptation to use my left hand in daily life (or face the stinging consequence). That means avoiding exercises that involve gripping […]

The weirdest breakfast ever

hospital-bed.jpg

(and that one time I had to ride in an ambulance. Please skip this post if you’re squeamish, like yours truly.) Hi Hope you’re all having a wonderful day. I’m typing this with one hand because I had a little incident today. It all started with this weird breakfast I had yesterday. This is going […]

Yoga teacher training

Lots of snuggles and downtime over here:  Even though I hate when Livi is sick, the cuddles and downtime have been amazing. After a frantic week last week, some forced relaxation is much-appreciated, especially when I get to spend it relaxing with noodle. Usually she rarely sits still, but we’ve been camped on the couch […]

Date night and doc

I think the post title pretty much says it all. (jalapeño prickly pear margarita!)  How’s your week going so far? The other night, the Pilot and I had an amazing date night at the Flying V at Loew’s Ventana. We go to Sunday brunch at the resort fairly often -it’s one of our all-time favorite […]

Half marathon playlist

For the half marathon I didn’t run. I’m supposed to be finishing the race as this post goes up, but instead, I’m at home drinking coffee after a nice night of sleep. I’ll never know if I would have crossed the finish line triumphantly, because in my mind, I pictured myself hobbling to a medical […]

Soup-er

soup-1-of-1-8.jpg

Last night reaffirmed an important life lesson: yoga is not like pizza. Ashley had suggested a candlelight hatha class, and I thought it would be good to go stretch, especially after my fall. When we got there, there was a sub, which is usually NBD; subs have helped me to find new instructors that I […]

What the yoga doc ordered + a NEW Zumba video

Last night’s yoga class was everything I needed. Usually when I take class Wednesday night, my body is toasted from teaching all day. I still go, because it’s the one class I like to take each week, just for me, and I haven’t once regretted it. If anything, I think all of the stretching helps […]

A tip for fellow H2O slackers

water-1-of-1.jpg

I’ve been sucking with the whole water thing lately. Despite the fact that Liv is a water drinking machine, and constantly asking for “Agua! Agua!”, I still manage to forget. The kick in the pants was when I had my makeup done on Saturday for the wedding, and the makeup artist told me I was […]
