  • Favorite Whole Foods Snacks + Weekend Recap


    Happy Monday! A few scenes from the weekend to share… I did a little Whole Foods trip and loved opening one of my bags to find they’d bagged all the best stuff together. – Sweet Potato Pop Chips (these are seriously addictive…I’m sorry for telling you about them! :) ) – Glutino Sea Salt Crackers [...]

  • Easy & Healthy Homemade Granola Bars


    Today I had the great honor of giving a presentation about healthy eating to a group of nearly 40 young local gymnasts. These girls are on the competitive team at International Gymnastics and they train over 20 hours a week, including 4 hours after school every day. We talked about fueling their bodies for their [...]

  • From Student To Teacher


    My day of rest and meds helped. I feel much better today! I think that I’ll be able to avoid this turning into cold/sinus infection and I am so thankful for that. I mentioned this in my last post but I haven’t been sick in a very long time (knock on wood). I think that’s [...]

  • New, Different, Challening

  • Fa-Fa-Fa-Freezing

I have pretty much been living in a perpetual state of cold since Christmas. I just cannot warm up. Waking up to this yesterday at my grandmother’s did not [...]

  • Our 2nd Anniversary Recap


    Tuesday was our second anniversary. Two years ago we were married in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina at Alhambra Hall. And because it’s fun to look at wedding pictures for all the special memories, I’m sharing a few with you! We lived in Mount Pleasant (Charleston area) for a year after college. After we moved to [...]

  • Busy Bee


    Well, yoga was a bit of a disappointment Sunday evening. My favorite instructor Suzanne ended up needing a sub at the last minute. I have to admit that I was a bit upset when I found out she wasn’t there but as a group ex instructor I know how much it stinks to be a [...]
