Three months ago. That was the last time I blogged. Before that, 2017 blogging was sporadic at best. It was a rough year of change for me. I quit my job, started a new one, moved to a new city, lost my grandmother, and struggled to find routine. But it was also a year filled… Continue reading Hello Blog? It’s Me, Ashley.
Happy Wednesday! A real life cold front came through two nights ago! That means fall temps where I can finally wear a sweater to work without having to change by the end of the day. Over the weekend I spent some time decorating the house for fall and Halloween, baking pumpkin goodies, and prepping for… Continue reading All About Fall: Pumpkin Oat Muffins & a Fall Fitness Challenge
Happy Monday! It has been almost 2 months since my last post, and it feels strange!

Welcome 2017! I for one am happy that 2016 has come and gone. It was a busy year full of some really great memories, but also some really trying times.

I can't wait to share pictures… Continue reading Happy New Year!- Christmas Recap, Goals, and 6 Weeks of Fitness and Clean Eating!

It's been hard with all of the delicious… Continue reading Christmas & Vacation Prep!
It's been rainy and cool the last few days. Perfect for staying in, cuddling up on the couch with some snacks, and watching a good movie. I've been craving Cheez-its recently. Before Celiac, they were definitely one of my go to snacks. Salty, cheesy, crunchy, what's not to love?!? While contemplating how to make these… Continue reading Homemade Gluten Free Cheez-its!
Happy November Everyone! This year is flying by. I can't believe Halloween has come and gone. October was definitely the a month that disappeared quickly. Before diving in to holiday prep and recipes, I wanted to recap all about my Halloween traditions. Mondays are rough. Coffee makes it so much better! I started my day… Continue reading Halloween Traditions!
Happy Monday Friends! The weather has finally provided us some fall temps here in Dallas. Mid 60's, rainy, and perfect for enjoying my coffee and gluten free pumpkin bread this morning.

I've done all I can to prep: the house is clean and organized, I'll be meal prepping this weekend, and I did some pampering with a mani-pedi. Now we wait... I spent this past weekend doing some last minute… Continue reading Lazy Weekend: Coffee, Walks, & Waffles!
I had off work this past Friday. My only plans were to mow the lawn, maybe do some cleaning, and relax. It started pouring about 9am, right as I had just finished mowing the front yard. I gave in to not mowing the back in the rain and came inside. I quickly showered and… Continue reading Weekend Recap: Farmer’s Market, Meal Prep, and Organizing Part 2!
