3 months and going strong…

3. 3 whole months. It may seem so short, but 3 months is a large enough victory that it has made this Monday so wonderful. I was so excited that I had a hard time falling asleep last night. I was thinking about what I wanted to share with you all in my blog today.Read More »


Product of the Week

My product of this week is, of course, another Trader Joe’s gem. I do most of my grocery shopping at Costco, Trader Joe’s, and actually, Amazon; so, that is where most of my goods will come from, y’all. But without further ado: Read More »

Product of the Week

So, I’ve recently become semi-obsessed with some of the things that I use in the kitchen on the reg, and I feel like if I don’t tell you guys about them, it’s just not fair. So I’m going to try to do a Product of the Week every once in a while so I can share the amazing-ness with y’all, because these goodies are just that awesome.


Today’s feature comes from, of course, Trader Joe’s. Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend is literally Read More »

Purple Pumpkin Project

Halloween is a pretty special holiday because it has so many fun traditions – trick or treating, dressing up, carving pumpkins, costume parties, and even more. When Kevin and I were dating,  my favorite Halloween tradition was carving pumpkins together. I would, of course, always try to carve mine better than his, because isn’t that just what you do when two naturally competitive people are in love??

But this year I won’t be carving my cute little pumpkin to compete with Kev’s; this Halloween I will be painting my pumpkin purple to raise awareness about epilepsy for the nearly 3 million people Read More »

Back to the Grind…

So if you follow me on Insta or Facebook, you know that I’ve been cruising around the Gulf of Mexico these past few days because my older brother got married on Saturday! Yayyy…Congratulations Patrick and Chris!! The wedding was so beautiful and we had so much fun.

As I was planning for the cruise, I told myself that I was going to be responsible with my meals. I mean, I wasn’t unrealistic; I knew I wouldn’t be able to stay on Whole30, so I just planned to stay semi-healthy, and not go totally bonkers. Well, I am here to tell you that I was not responsible. Like, that plan went out the metaphorical window. (Wah, insert cry face emoji, please). That 24/7 soft serve ice cream was calling my name, and the chocolate melting cake was just too good to pass up at dinner.   Y’all, I ordered two freaking desserts one night. I mean, who am I to decide between crème brûlée and chocolate melting cake…. um both, please! And I mean, I knew what I was doing. It’s basically self sabotage because uh yeah, I have a dairy sensitivity. Um, ice cream = dairy, hellooo?Read More »

He Just Loves Me Hard…

If you don’t like love, don’t read this one guys. I have to take some time to give a spotlight to my amazing hubs today. While I was working on my website I heard our wedding song and I knew that it was my sign that I needed to write about him today. I’m not usually that person to gush about how awesome he is on social media and stuff, but he is basically the bomb.com (oh yes I did say that). And it does annoy me sometimes when he asks me EVERYDAY if I took my medicine, and alwaaaays reminds me to be careful when I’m driving to the grocery down the street, but when I hear our song and I think about everything that we have been through together, its just a little reminder from God that he does it because he really, really loves me.
