on the wagon

Hi 🙂 How’s your Dine-In December going? I’ve been thankful for copious veggie soup leftovers to keep me on the wagon this week… (also brought a bag of Skinny Pop to share with my work friends-  the pre-popped kind doesn’t make the resort smell like a movie theatre)  and also for an awesome girls’ night…

Smack in the middle

Most of the time, I love to cook.  I can’t wait for a chance to try out a new recipe or make an old favorite for dinner (all while singing “Bringing home a baby bumblebee,” doing a ridiculous dance or orchestrating a Tupperware drum solo). Other times, I want my food delicately placed on the…

Cheesy Broccoli Egg Muffins

This little guy was the highlight of our night last night.  I saw the huge wagon of pumpkins outside Trader Joe’s, and tried to restrain myself because I feel like the overexcitement of pumpkin-flavored-everything taints the specialness of it. I felt like I should wait, similar to the Christmas decoration overload in October. I get…

8/17: Friday Faves

-Wedding weekend! Our anniversary is tomorrow- I can’t believe so much has happened in the past 5 years. 3 military moves, 3 deployments, a house, a baby, traveling, adventures with the pups, hard times, amazing times, shenanigans. It feels like yesterday I was checking him out in between glances at my accounting book in Starbucks…

Welcome to the s’more side

It’s a stormy night over here- perfect for a rainy day workout, eh? (Thank you so much to those of you who already did the workout and left your feedback! So glad you’re loving it so far) My friend Lisa spent the afternoon over here hanging out with Oliv and myself. Lisa is from Australia…

Saucy

Two pro chefs in our kitchen?  Not a bad place to be…. While Meg, Liv and I hung out, my Uncle E and Kyle were busy whipping up an amazing feast. As soon as he got home from work, we made a Pilot sandwich… Sleepy girl went up to bed, and then the rest of…

Au not natural

As you guys know, I’m pretty big on products that don’t have a lot of extra stuff added to them and try to buy organic whenever possible. When it comes to food, usually if they have organic, I buy organic. As much as I would like to live in a world where everything is pure…

Iced

Look! Ice cubes in my coffee: Thank you for all of the amazing iced coffee suggestions! I can’t wait to try Pioneer Woman’s recipe and make some coffee or almond milk ice cubes, too. For this morning, I just made the coffee and put it in the freezer to let it chill  while I fed…

‘Cado love

Brought back something I haven’t had consistently in quite a while: the morning cup o’ Joe. Since I’ve been breastfeeding, I was worried that caffeine would give Liv an extra dose of energy -a scary thought when you’re already partying all night and sleep-deprived- but when I found out that it’s processed the same as…

Sparkling Lemonade Iced Tea

Sparkling lemonade iced tea is a refreshing drink to cool off with as we head into these warmer months. It’s sweetened with Stevia, so you can enjoy a sweet drink without the sugar rush.  I had an amazing weekend with amazing people, and I’m also wicked sore from teaching on Saturday. My biceps are killing me!…

Bring it back

Just when I thought it would be an uneventful morning, we had a massive power outage in Tucson. Livi and I were just about to head somewhere air conditioned when it magically turned back on. Thank goodness we both had breakfast before everything went out. Since I’ve been enjoying oats for a snack lately, it’s…
