Crazy Busy Beautiful June!

Salutations! June is here and brings some craziness into my life! I have many adventures planned for the next few weeks and I am greatly looking forward to sharing them with you all! During the month of June I will only be sending out a few posts so that I can enjoy my time and […]

  There is nothing better than a big fat bowl of ice cream on a summer day. Amiright?! Unfortunately the older I get the less ice cream I can handle. I found smoothie bowls a few years ago and y’all already know that I’m utterly addicted to them. I know I post a lot of […]

YOU MATTER. Wanderlust 108 Festival.

  I’m not a girl that’s afraid to venture out on my own. It took me years to get to this point in my life but I can say that I’m finally there. I LOVE LOVE LOVE going on little personal adventures; just me, myself and I. This past weekend I went to a yoga […]

Changing your morning routine to maximize your time.

    Photo Credit: Suzanna McGarrah Photography (KCMO) I am a completely self-motivated person. I don’t need a friend to workout with or to set new goals, I work best alone. BUT, I CANNOT seem to get myself out of bed early enough to create any sort of morning routine – let alone getting a […]

Tandoori chicken and homemade naan flatbread

Middle Eastern food has got to be one of my all-time favorite things in the world. Now, I haven’t been overseas to have an authentic Hindu meal (YET) but I can dream and drool about it. Last night Eric and I got completely sucked into a show called Chef’s Abroad. It’s a show about different […]

Feeling like a million bucks!

Wow! What a weekend! This was one of the best weekends I’ve had in my adult life. It was full of good food, so many laughs and a lot of miles!   My son, who is three, ran his first 5K on Saturday. I was planning on just having a little 3 mile walk with […]

This is it! This is the moment…

21 hours 36 minutes. 106.47 miles. Total time and distance spent in training. This is it. The moment that I’ve been training for. I run my half on Sunday and I am feeling ready and prepared! I’ve been training for 7 weeks. 7 weeks of blood, sweat and tears. Maybe not blood but it has […]

Weekend shenanigans!

What a full weekend we had! There was so much to do but we decided to just have fun instead of adulting on 100. Training for my half has taken up some large chunks from my Saturdays but I’m loving it so I don’t really mind. I spent the majority of Saturday running and teaching […]

Pineapple smoothies and half marathon training!

Most of you know that I am training to run my first half marathon. I’ve been training for 4 weeks and the race is 3 weeks away! I didn’t realize when I signed up for it that I only had 7 weeks to prepare but by golly I’m doing it! For the first few weeks […]

Creating a minimal home.

I am stressed and overwhelmed by clutter and unfortunately I have accumulated a lot of it. I didn’t even realize just how much clutter I actually had until I started my de-cluttering process. In the past month I have watched the Minimalism documentary 5 times and finished Joshua Becker’s book The More of Less for […]
