Fitness. Diet. Pregnancy Take 2.

Pregnancy is a wild journey. And for me, it's not without lots of fatigue, nausea, and heartburn. How people put themselves through this 5 times or more is beyond me. Babies are tight and all... but my goodness. My cap is 2. I'm 20 weeks along and baby is kicking and squirming in its home. … Continue reading Fitness. Diet. Pregnancy Take 2.

That time I was a sh***y friend

Sometimes I'm a good friend. Sometimes I'm not. This past Tuesday I was a really sh***y friend to my best friend. My husband's birthday was Tuesday and guys... I forgot about it. It was in the back of my mind but for some reason it was not a priority. I didn't make it a priority. … Continue reading That time I was a sh***y friend

Ready or not: pregnancy round 2

Farmhouse living has been kind to us. We started a garden, our orchard is growing delicious fruits, and our chickens will start laying delicious eggs soon. Lots of bounty abound!

Examples include, but are not limited to: "I'm going to learn to juggle" or "I'm going to garden" or "I'm going to drink less wine" or my favorite, "I'm … Continue reading 2,016 miles in 2016 and Matcha Chia Pudding

Happy New Year!

This is the first blog post of 2016! I thought long and hard about what the blog post should be about but the longer I thought, the longer it took to write. I realized I could be thinking about it forever and never actually write anything (which I've been guilty of doing in the past). … Continue reading Happy New Year!

Why Paleo and what a week of Paleo eating looks like

A few months ago, my brother in law inspired me to try the paleo lifestyle with him. I decided to give it a try because I figured I didn't have anything to lose besides weight. On my frame, a few extra pounds is pretty noticeable. Besides for the change in how clothes fit, I notice it … Continue reading Why Paleo and what a week of Paleo eating looks like

The journey never ends: self reflection

A couple of years ago, yoga found me, I felt inspired, shaved my head, signed up  for yoga teacher training and went to India. I stopped drinking, made a promise to stop gossiping, and made goals to better myself and to live authentically true. Two years ago never felt so far. I have since then … Continue reading The journey never ends: self reflection

Thrifty Thursdays

“Champagne taste on a beer budget” is basically my motto for everything in my life. I like the finer things but don’t necessarily have a budget to afford the finer things. Which is why I proudly frequent thrift stores. A lot. Every once in a while, I am lucky and find something that needs to … Continue reading Thrifty Thursdays
