Bring on the madness

March Madness is officially heeeeeeere. I look forward to this all year, and it always go by so quickly! Trying to savor it. I’ve spent some time this morning working on my bracket, and do this every time a Sportscenter announcer says they believe Arizona will make it to the Final Four.   (This is…

Hi friends! FRIDAY DANCE! What are you up to this weekend? We have some fun events to look forward to: a birthday party, night out with friends, and farmer’s market/relaxing.  Last night, the Pilot met up with some of the guys, so Livi and I got ready for a little mama-daughter date at Ranchos (<—…

working on my mussels

Lots of seafood ahead… But first, these bunnies! I picked them up at Home Goods as an effort to add some Easter-ish decor and they look just like the foil-covered chocolate bunnies.

Hiiii. How’s your Monday going? We’ve had a lovely morning. Still tons of rain, a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and Livi’s gymnastics class, which is one of my favorite things ever.  So, there are a few customs I wish the US would adopt. #1: the siesta. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A NATIONAL SIESTA? My family is…

Back in the (spin) saddle + a CORE40 giveaway

Hope my friends up in the northeast are staying warm. <3 After traveling, it always feels nice to get back into the routine, and teaching is a huge part of that.

Savory Goat Cheese Veggie Dip

Hi! How’s the afternoon going? It’s been a great day with my little sidekick. 🙂 This morning involved playing birthday fairy, which involved a solo trip to the mall. It was luxurious to smell candles with both hands, and I loved picking up a couple of birthday surprises for the little lady. (PS all she…

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars

This is just ridiculous. Before we talk protein bars, let’s talk about The Bachelor. DID YOU WATCH IT?! Are they really trying for ratings this season or what? The tupperware joke. I’m still cringing bahaha. I loved that they saved the normal people for the last round, for the most part. Good TV.  So, yesterday…
