  • Weekend: Parties, Pups, Tiki Bars and Treats


    It seems like every blog post has been heavy on the moving talk but it's taken over my life these last few weeks. For whatever reason I didn't expect it to be this big of a deal but it's been a steady stream of both work and emotions. My weekend was a mix of moving [...]

  • Recent Eats: Give Me The Christmas Chocolate


    Happy Monday! It was semi-back to normal for me this morning with a 6:30 a.m. training client at the gym. I usually have four in a row on Monday mornings so only having one client was kind of weird! This week will be a little slow for me as a lot of my clients wrap [...]

  • What A Week of Food Shopping Looks Like for Me


    Good morning. I hope everyone is staying warm and safe. Many of my friends in Atlanta and Birmingham have endured really scary situations with this winter weather...like having to spend the night in offices, 12-hour commutes to go just a few miles, being stranded in gridlock overnight, problems getting to their children and so on. [...]

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies {Recipe}


    Watch out...I've got a delicious, easy, slightly addictive and crowd pleasing recipe for you today. Say hello to these Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies. My friends lovingly refer to them as my "chocolate balls" and I get asked all the time if I'm bringing them to get togethers. They are relatively "clean" as far as [...]

    One of the members of Metro CrossFit is a blogger and Paleo chef. Meet Heather Connell of Multiply Delicious! I blogged about and gave away a copy of her e-cookbook back in February and today I'm here to tell you about her new print cookbook, Paleo Sweets & Treats: Seasonally Inspired Desserts that Let You Have [...]

  • My Five Year BodyPump Anniversary + Wine Wednesday & Erin McDermott Fabulousness


    It was so interesting to read everyone's take on introvert v. extrovert. Reader Laurie encouraged me to check out Susan Cain's book, "Quiet" and also to listen to her TED talk about the power of introverts. I will definitely be using one of my Audible credits for Quiet and I'll let you all know what [...]

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies


    Baking is my favorite. Baking with peanut butter is even better. Baking with peanut butter AND chocolate is over the top heavenly. Some of my all-time favorite peanut butter and chocolate recipes are these peanut butter chocolate chip bars and these flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Today, I have a new peanut butter and [...]

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Layer Bars


    I think many of us have heard of Ann Byrn, better known as "The Cake Mix Doctor." She's published multiple cookbooks sharing how to turn a traditional boxed cake mix into something special. Since cake mix is the cornerstone of most of Ann's recipes it seems only logical that she would create her own brand [...]

  • Friday at 5 & 10


    Happy weekend! I mentioned in my Friday post that I was traveling this weekend. I've been a little all over in the last 24 hours but here's my final destination. I'm at my parents house! I arrived exhausted and sweaty around 3:30 p.m. and was immediately sent off to shower. I then painted my nails [...]

I read every.single.one of the comments and loved hearing about your best birthdays! There were some common themes… It’s fun to celebrate your birthday in [...]
