Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend! Saturday included working, finishing up some homework, and a workout.  On Sunday my mom and I went to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Anthropologie, and Chicos to make a return for her.  My mom found these amazing boots at Anthropologie .. she is in love with them!




Blogger Survey

March 7th, 2014

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday I was catching up on Julie from Peanut Butter Fingers latest blog posts and came across this survey she did. I thought it would be fun to tag along and do the survey too!

What was your go-to food or snack as a child?

It’s probably a tie between fruit rollups, gushers, cereal, and cookies. Super healthy, right?!

What got you interest in health/fitness?

I played volleyball and basketball all throughout my childhood. Once, I stopped playing sports I really wasn’t active at all.  I started gaining weight (about 20 lbs <– eek!) and immediately immersed myself in the world of healthy living!

You’re stuck on an island for a month and can only eat three foods? What would they be?

french fries, hamburgers, and Suja Juice

Favorite and least favorite body part to train?

Favorite – legs

Least Favorite – abs (which probably means I should strengthen my core more so I like them)

Favorite and least favorite health or fitness fads?

Favorite – Cold pressed juice, Suja to be exact!

Least Favorite – low carb / no sugar / fat free crap

What is the hardest workout you have ever done?

Running a 5k, which I know probably sounds pathetic haha ..  I am not a runner by any means.

What is the first movie that made me cry?

I don’t think I’ve cried over a movie?

Your #1 pet peeve?


Dream Job?

Author or Fashion Designer

Hairy arms or hairy legs?

Neither, but I’d rather have hairy arms than legs.


Let me know if you do this survey, I would love to read it!


Oatmeal + Coffee

March 5th, 2014

Hi Everyone! I’ve missed you guys! I’ve been super busy with work (<–tax season!!), school, baby showers for my best friends sister (post coming up on “what to wear to a baby shower”), and trying to keep my life organized! Today was my first day in a while to be able to sleep in and get organized.  I started off the morning with a little almond milk iced coffee and oatmeal. We were all out of berries this morning, so I used half a banana and added some cinnamon & maple syrup to my oatmeal.  It was delicious! I’m already thinking about this for tomorrow’s breakfast.BreakfastcollageMy plans for today include school, homework, blog, workout, laundry, pick out/buy an outfit (online shopping is seriously the best) for my co-workers baby shower later this month, and go to bed early! Let’s see how many of those things I actually accomplish! Hope your Wednesday is off to a great start =)


Walk in the Orchard

February 24th, 2014

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Saturday included working all day, running errands (target, gas, & the carwash) in the late afternoon, coming home and doing some homework.  On Sunday I was able to sleep in a little, 6:30 vs. my normal 4:45, which was nice.  I headed into work for a few hours and then came home and prepped some food for the week. I prepped chicken in the crockpot with fresh parsley & chives, artichokes, brown rice, and broccoli. After that I took the dogs on an afternoon walk in one of our orchards. The almond trees just budded out so everything is so pretty around here! Happy Monday!

Quiet Morning

February 13th, 2014

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you’re all having a nice week. This morning I got up before everyone and had a nice quiet breakfast. I’d been craving oatmeal and knew that’s what was for breakfast this morning. oatmeal

I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats, Original Blue Diamond Almond Breeze, real sea salt, blueberries, banana, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

I read this article on Cosmpolitan’s website about “23 Problems Only Gluten-Free People Understand” it was pretty funny and I agreed with just about everything. There is wheat in the weirdest things, things you would never think of, it’s like why does there need to be wheat in makeup?

Have a great day!
