16 Weeks

So, technically I’m 17 weeks along but since I’m behind, this will be more like, a reflection on my 16th week. It’s kinda crazy that I’m almost halfway done…I still don’t feel very pregnant! I thought for sure I’d be way bigger by this point but then again, this is my first time so I […]

Grocery Budget Update

I think I need to restart my grocery budget. I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately but I have a serious problem with impulse buys. I think part of it is since I’m pregnant, I buy things and have the mindset of, “oh it’s okay…I’m preggo..I’m supposed to gain some weight…” That is not […]

Random Wednesday

Honestly, I have nothing to blog about today. Usually, I have a plan the day or even days before I blog, but today kinda slipped through the cracks.

I recently started working everyday-as in, a real job that pays in money- which is great! It’s definitely a relief to get more money coming in now. […]

Healthy Brownie “Batter”

A couple weeks ago I came across a recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog…well, I come across a recipe on her blog like, everyday but this one in particular really caught my eye. I’ve made a couple of her recipes before and they’ve always turned out really great. I love how she creatively uses healthy […]

20 Miler.

It’s officially taper time!!! Yep, that means the 20 mile run was a success…a success as in, I finished it! That’s all I wanted to do was finish. I set out for my run Saturday afternoon and came back almost 4 hours later, so it was quite a day. Here were my stats:

Time: 3:47:16 […]

Roasted Peppers and 15 Weeks

I bought a huge bag of peppers from Costco the other day and last night was thinking I’d better use them or they’ll soon be trash. Since going to the Local Food Expo the other day, I haven’t been able to keep roasted red peppers out of my mind; they’re so good! I never really […]

Peanut Butter Goodies

If you’re a frequent blog reader, you’ve probably noticed a lot of blogs have giveaways. Some giveaway food items, some kitchen products, some even workout gear. Obviously the best giveaways are foods :). I read quite a few blogs, therefore enter into a number of giveaways but never win…it’s really sad :(.

I finally won […]

Local Food Expo

The hubs and I went to a local food expo last night in a nearby town. I didn’t really know what to expect…if it was primarily for distributors, restaurants, whoever…all I knew as it was free and advertised in the paper so I assumed regular old folks like us could go too.


Chia Overnight Oats

I’ve tried overnight oats once before, right when we moved into a new place in Dallas (no microwave yet). I remember them being pretty good and wanting to try them again but honestly, kind of forgot about their existence.

In the spirit of Spring and warmer weather, I decided to try them again (even though […]

Running While Pregnant

I had everything planned out in my head: I would stop taking birth control in November (sorry, TMI), take a couple months to get back to normal, then take a couple more months or a year to get pregnant. Yep, that was the plan. During that time I’d also train for the Boston marathon (baby-free), […]
