Paleo Baby Meal + around the weekend

Hi friends! Happy Monday! How’s your morning going? Anything exciting happening this week? I can’t help but already feel excited because we’re headed to Tucson next week. I’ve missed the fam so much, and am definitely ready for some desert summer. (Even though the heat will burn you in the face, that’s what eegee’s are for. I’m hoping we can catch some magical monsoons, hit up some Tucson faves, and enjoy swimming with the fam.)

I had my ultrasound Friday morning. I’ll post an update on the Family page in a little while, but it was a day of mixed emotions, I’m feeling much better now (I don’t want to leave you guys hanging. We found out that the baby has a small heart defect which shook me up quite a bit. This happened on the same day we were waiting to hear results on a biopsy from Bella. Bella’s results came back Saturday, and she is likely going to be ok(!), but with these two events, I was worried sick all morning.). Earlier during the week, I’d asked Whitney if I could take dinner over Friday evening, and it ended up being a welcome distraction. It was helpful for me to step away from Dr. Google, blast some Gipsy Kings, and make delicious food with my little sous chef. 

Whitters eats mostly Paleo, so we made her a grain-free, dairy-free feast:

Welcome back, Cobb

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had a wonderful day! It’s been a bit of a busy week already. Yesterday, I went to go to see the doc for some heart palpitations I’d been experiencing. I’ve had them on and off for a couple days along with some extreme nausea and fatigue. They wanted me to go […]

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 […]

Traveling misadventures + Hi from Arkansas

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

(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 […]


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 […]
