  • Carb Me


    Y'all...I don't know what's been up with me but I have been craving carbs something fierce over the last couple of weeks. Tomato sandwiches... Sliders... Cookies...(and one AMAZING carrot cake whoopie pie from Whole Foods on Saturday night which I devoured it its entirety while watching Mad Men). Grilled cheese with avocado and a fried [...]

  • Hungry, Hungry!


    Thursday was one of those days where I was hungry all day long. Nothing satisfied me and I was hungry again an hour after eating a meal. I find the fluctuations in my appetite really interesting.   Breakfast was another "Nutty Fruity" smoothie from Berrybrook Farm. I couldn't stop thinking about how delicious the one [...]

  • I RX’d my first double under WOD…and it took FOREVER!


    Exciting news on the CrossFit front. Today I RX'd my first WOD with double unders ever! It took me forever and I was the last one to finish by 5 minutes but I did it! I was really looking forward to doing this WOD. I love chippers and this looked like a great workout to [...]

  • What I’m Reading + The Best Summer Lunch


    Hi there. I'm back in Charlotte where it seems that things are exactly as I left them. I had to get away because I missed my parents and also because I needed a step back. I find that I have to get out of my day-to-day reality sometimes to gain clarity on the big picture. [...]

  • Trouble


    Last time I visited my grandmother she sent me home with this. Yes, a Costco-sized container of chocolate covered raisins - one of my biggest candy weaknesses. I tucked them away in the back of a cabinet and where they stayed unopened for months. Well, I spotted them last weekend and thought I'd just have [...]

  • Finally Kipping


    Thanks for all of the input on my hair color and recipe blog dilemma. The consensus was to go for the ombre trend (eek!!!) and to combine PBR and Bakin' and Eggs. So, I have some work to do! I'm not sure how long it will take for me to figure out how to get [...]

  • Pinterest Finds, Sock Buns, Should I Color My Hair? Random!


    Happy Monday! I hope that your week is off to a great start. Mine certainly is after reading your incredible comments on yesterday's post about finding happiness in the little things and everyday moments. I have said this so many times but one of my favorite things about blogging is the opportunity to connect with [...]

  • Welcome September


    I hope the first day of September was great for everyone! September seems to signal the end of summer and bring the start of football, fall foods (hold on to your seats...pumpkin madness forthcoming!) and the promise of cooler days to come. It feels like a breath of fresh air. Personally, I am excited for [...]

  • I’m Still Full


    Good morning. First, thank you so much for your comments on yesterday's post. I know that Brittney's family and friends so appreciate your thoughts and prayers and I am overwhelmed by the responses and positive feedback on taking responsibility for your life. I've said this so many times and I'm going to keep saying it [...]

  • The Things You Don’t See


    Recently I have received quite a few questions through email and comments on posts about my daily eats. The questions mainly focus on what I eat throughout the day, when I snack and if I show everything I eat on the blog. I most definitely think this is worth addressing for everyone. First and foremost, [...]

  • One of Those Days


    It's been one of those days...but I kind of just have to laugh about it. It culminated with my iPod dying 10 minutes before my yoga class started this evening and Brandon throwing his back out at his bowling league.  Yes,  you read that right. My husband is in a bowling league and he threw [...]

  • Monday positivity…and dress details!


    Did you survive Monday? I find that Monday sets the tone for my week so I always try to go into it with a positive attitude and think about all the good things I have to look forward to during the week. My Monday started out wonderfully – I slept until 7:30 a.m.! I am [...]
