Halloween and Hash

Breakfast hash! Don’t get too excited. But first, Halloween!

Halloween might just be my favorite holiday. I have dressed up every year for as long as I can remember. That’s not true, the last two years, I didn’t. I guess I thought because I have kids that I’m done with dress up? This year, for […]

We Eat Bear!..and Other Adventures

We are officially mountain people. People of the mountain, indeed. My husband brought home bear meat, and we’ve been eatin’ it up.

Let me preface this by saying, I’m from Scottsdale, Arizona. The ‘dale, if you will. We don’t eat bear meat too often. My husband seems to think bear meat is a normal thing. […]

Pumpkin Protein Shake and an Outdoor Workout

I realize most of the country still feels like summer so maybe my pumpkin shakes are a little premature, but here in Colorado, the leaves are straight up yellow. It’s been in the 60’s, leaves changing more and more each day, and temps dropping to the 30’s at night (oh my gawwwwwd). **We live at […]

This post is going to be short and sweet with no pictures. Aren’t you excited to read it? Ha! I’m writing this in my iPad which is basically a first world form of torture so I can only handle short and sweet :).

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about our grocery budget recently because I […]

Blackberry Chia Jam *Recipe*

I’m really holding on to summer over here!!

I was driving home today and actually saw some yellow leaves. What are you doing here yellow leaves? Get lost!! It is NOT fall yet so you simmer down.

Healthier Pork Fried Rice *Recipe*

Hey guys! What’s goin’ on?

First and foremost, I’m watching Fear the Walking Dead. Man..intense.

Anyway, we’ve been taking it easy over here and just trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer. The mornings are starting to get colder so I know fall, and then of course winter, will be here before I […]

California Trip and Jamie Eason’s Lemon Protein Bars

Hey ya’ll! How are things?

So, we are officially out of beach life and back into the real world. Ugh..sigh. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some real world, but I was really enjoying the beach.


We had a great trip!! There were a few bumps and hiccups with the kiddos…but aren’t […]

Using a Rotisserie Chicken, Giveaway Winner, and Recent Workouts

I am so, so guilty of buying rotisserie chickens from the store like, several times a week. Does anyone else do this? They’re just so awesome to have around (in my opinion). My husband, on the other hand, rolls his eyes every time I bring one home. God bless those rotisserie chickens. My family would […]

Horse Rides, Can-It-Forward Day, and a *Giveaway*

Hey ya’ll! I think that’s an appropriate greeting given my recent adventures in the mountains. We have been crazy busy over here with family. All of my husband’s family have been in town over the past two weeks. We also celebrated a big birthday!

My little baby Willow turned 1! She is officially the […]
