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.
Hi Everyone! Yes, this blog still exists. I think this may be the longest I have gone without posting. Life has been pretty crazy/stressful, but hoping that I'll have some clarity in the next few weeks that can help me get back to a normal routine. I wanted to share all about my adventures so… Continue reading Bikini Challenge!
I am PUMPED that I have a four day workweek this week. I feel like I have been non-stop the last few weekends, and I can't wait to have some extra time off. Two weekends ago was my little brother's wedding. It was so much fun to catch up with family and the weather was… Continue reading Fun Eats & Treats

Happy Pre-Friday friends! This is my last slow week at work before all the students arrive. 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!
Ok, I know it's July, but I'm already itching for my favorite season to arrive. Since I'll probably have to wait 3 more months for cooler temps to arrive, I decided to bust out some pumpkin goodies that are both yummy, but also really healthy. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber and vitamins.… Continue reading Gluten Free Pumpkin Protein Doughnuts & Muffins!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I took it easy this weekend, spent a lot of time at home relaxing, and did some serious deep cleaning! On Friday night, Nick and I headed to the Ranger's game. We usually try to go to at least once a season. They are so fun, and… Continue reading Weekend Recap: Baseball, Cleaning, & Snap Kitchen!
