Around the weekend

Hi guys! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one! 

Usually after a roadtrip, we would come back and straight-up chill the days following. For some reason, we felt super productive this weekend and got quite a bit done around the house. We emptied out and organized the pantries, grocery shopped and meal prepped, and enjoyed playing with Liv and watching the U of A game. Sunday it rained all day, and was perfect for some chicken tortilla soup:

It was a great weekend! <3

Some more pics from our Disney adventures:

Us at disney2Boutique

(Bibbity Bobbity Boutique = something I totally wish they had when I was a kid! I watched intently while they styled her hair so I can copy that bun for her here at home when she asks for “a princess bun.”)


Lights at small world

While we were at Disney, the dogs were enjoying their own vacay. We have an amaaaaazing house/dog sitter, who took them on twice-daily walks, with her to enjoy dinner on the patio at a BBQ restaurant, and lots of playing at the park. She also gave them each a bath. Whaaaaat?!

Bell and caro

(Censoring Bella’s business haha.)

Sunday morning, we stopped by Ritual Juicebox, a new juice spot in Hillcrest before grabbing groceries at Trader Joe’s.


I loved the bright atmosphere with simple white accents and succulent-adorned tables. The menu was pretty thorough, with a variety of juice, smoothie, acai bowls options, and fresh, raw foods (like salads and wraps).


They also had a cute little shop shelf with trail mix, nuts, natural cleaning supplies, books, dry brushes, and lotion.

I’ve noticed that more juice shops are getting into pre-bottling juice, which is more convenient for them, but isn’t my personal fave. The nutrients are still intact if they cold press the juice, but I like juice more room temperature (I know, I’m weird), and I almost always like to ask for mint in my green juice, which I definitely won’t do if it’s pre-bottled. Still, it was very refreshing and delicious! We’ll definitely be back. 

Juice in a bottle

It feels great to be drinking green juice and green smoothies on a regular basis again, and Liv is a huge fan too. ;)

It’s time for BODYPUMP over here! Hope you’re having a great morning. <3

24 rules for being a human being in 2014. <– definitely worth a read These cute votive candles.

Fancy feet {+ a new Zumba video}


Hiiiii Hope you’re enjoying the week so far! Livi and I had a great day yesterday and last night, I met some friends for yoga. It had been forever since I’ve taken a class, and mannnn, did I need it. My tight hips and quads were crying a little, but some namaste time has them […]

Chicken Cordon Bleu-ish


(More like “chicken cordon goat” but that just sounds weird) Hiiii Thank you for all of your wonderful feedback on our new YouTube channel! Thank you to all of our new subscribers — I’m excited to see the channel grow and post more videos. My legs are STILL sore from Saturday night’s dance party… guess […]

Quinoa Pizza Snack Bites


Some things you may not know about the Pilot: -He minored in Italian -He grew up in Arkansas and Alabama -He’s the third generation of military pilots in his family (His dad and grandfather- pretty incredible resemblance, huh?) -He doesn’t like quinoa… or squash. I knew all of the above facts except for the last […]

Cardiac Cats and Pinner Winners

I had a feeling I’d be way too zonked to go to the Wildcats game last night. Thursdays can go one way or the other with my teaching schedule- sometimes they’ll be relaxed and passive classes, and sometimes I’ll get surprised with multiple intense teaches, which ended up being yesterday. I taught buff booty, DJ […]

Sock lopsided


Today was a great day, but I think the fact that I forgot a sock gave it a strange feel. While you’re teaching multiple fitness classes, it’s hard to forget that you’re only wearing one sock with your shoes. Didn’t feel very good. This did, though (coming home to snuggle my favorite girl) And this […]
