Start Somewhere: Cheating a Bit

August 17, 2015

Hello Monday! While I certainly enjoy the weekend, I also never hate when Monday hits. The worst thing about it is that Nate goes back to work, but I so enjoy a fresh start too. We’ve got a fun week this week, and I’m going to be B U S Y planning out my sessions […]

Y’all. SO THANKFUL IT’S FRIDAY. Another great week, but I’m always down with more family time whenever I can get it! We don’t really have major plans this weekend, just enjoying some slightly cooler weather and time outside. And honestly? I’m kind of praying for some naps for the grown-ups in this house. Lord knows […]

Vanilla Bean Almond Cake

August 12, 2015

CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE.   I’m interrupting our regularly scheduled Whole30 programming to let you know that this cake? Is LEGIT.   I never really thought that a gluten free cake could taste as good as regular ol’ flour-filled cake, let alone better, but I was wrong. This cake is amazing! It’s dense and sweet, and is reminiscent […]

Whole30 Coconut Latte

August 11, 2015

In some ways I feel like I’m cheating y’all with this “recipe” because honestly? It’s just coffee, coconut milk, a smidge of coconut oil whirred to submission with an immersion blender. But heaven help me if this little concoction hasn’t been getting me through the transition from super sweet coffee to now being able actually […]

Start Somewhere: Whole30 Update and Workout Love

August 10, 2015

I feel like a lot of my struggles lately (and by lately I mean my whole entire life) have centered around food. Eating too much, eating too much of one thing, allowing bad habits to take over, etc. That being said, a lot of this “Start Somewhere” series has been focused on food – what […]

Mustard Chicken Marinade

August 5, 2015

I can’t tell you how many times over the past months I’ve just wished for fall to get here already so that I could start enjoying the cool mornings, dry – but warm – days, and the chilly evenings. While I live in shorts and T-shirts almost year-round, I can’t help but be a little […]

Stacks.   Y’all, I’m just popping in real fast today because I am focusing all of my work energy this week on creating a rocking presentation for the Arkansas Women Bloggers conference….but I couldn’t let another day go by without sharing these insane stacks with you guys. They work for literally […]

Start Somewhere: Starting Whole30

August 3, 2015

I feel so completely unqualified to write about Whole30 right now y’all. Despite doing weeks of research and planning, we’re only 3 days in (as of this morning), which means that my experience with it so far hasn’t reached the hard part. Yet. Regardless, here we are – we’ve started this thing! – and I’m […]

First of all, can I just teletransport myself to Positano already? Is teletransport even a word? Good gravy. I’ve been watching Giada in Italy lately and have been re-watching almost every episode just to feel like I’m on vacation in Europe. Can you even imagine what it must be like to have a family home […]
