  • Getting Back in the Groove…Recent Eats + Bacon Brussels Sprouts Love


    I have been so out of the regular blogging groove lately that it's been almost two weeks since I've posted a weekly workout recap or a recent eats post.

  • Morning Baking


    My strawberries from last week were on their last leg so I decided to make some mini Strawberry Muffins before work this morning (I know, I'm weird. I like to bake before work.) I made a few changes to my original recipe but they still turned out nicely. I crumbled one of the mini muffins [...]
