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 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!
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!
I'm finally settling back in the the swing of things... The drive back from Ruidoso, New Mexico took 9 full hours, and with a panting dog in the back seat, I was ready to be home! Nick and I spent the rest of our time on the trip exploring hiking trails around the mountains. Peanut… Continue reading Gluten Free Adventures: New Mexico Part 2!

This is the last week in March (can you believe how fast it has gone by?!), so it's time to really get into a strong pattern before summer hits. The weather was gorgeous this weekend, so I spent… Continue reading Workouts, Sushi, and Easter!
It feels weird talking about last weekend when we are getting so close to the next one, but I wanted to share a couple of great places Nick and I checked out over last weekend in the Dallas area. Spring is definitely here! The weather has been gorgeous and all of the flowers are blooming. Saturday… Continue reading Weekend Recap: Porch Drinks & Soft Serve
No offense to Indianapolis... It seems nice enough, but I wish I was traveling somewhere else for my upcoming work trip. I was just there at the beginning of February and will be staying in the same area for a conference.If I have time, my goal is to branch out and find more GF friendly… Continue reading Packing for Indianapolis and Week Recap
I feel like it's been forever since I have posted. Work has been intense, but now the students are off for spring break and I'm looking forward to a more low-key week ahead! (even if I do have to work). This weekend I'll be heading to visit a friend in Austin, TX. I'm looking forward… Continue reading Week Recap: Nature, Pizza, and Packing
I survived the longest, tiring, and most challenging week of work I have all year. I worked straight through for 12 days and for many days in a row I worked 18+ hours. Definitely a rough way to start out the year after vacation! It also made sticking to all of my new goals impossible.… Continue reading I’m Alive!
