Super Easy Trader Joe’s Dish

Last minute, I ran to Trader Joe’s for an emergency grocery haul – we’ve gotten stuck in a cycle of missing our normal grocery day and then ended up scraaaaaping the bottom of the fridge barrel for meals.  Anyway, when I was there, I headed to the back for some free food samples and discovered [...]


The Fitness Craze I’m Dying To Try

We spontaneously went to the zoo this morning.  It was fun!  Here were the highlights: “Awww, look, the turtles are hugging!”   This weekend, I found out that my gym is going to start offering PiYo classes!  I am so pumped.  I am DYING to try PiYo. Does it feel like PiYo is everywhere right [...]


Our Weekend Snapshots

The Husband made me this delicious breakfast. When I sat down at the table, I said, “Ohhh! This is totally blog-worthy!” and ran to get a camera.  Hah. THREE CHEERS for peach season! Can you believe it’s upon us?   I was planning to make this awesome Vegan Peach Baked Oatmeal from the Fitnessista, but [...]



I bribed the dogs for direct eye contact with carrots.  Hah. How’s your Friday going? We are having an easy, breezy day so far – but now I’m sitting at the computer, preparing to bang out some work.   We spent the morning at the mall.  Not to buy anything, but just to walk around [...]


Yoga Poses I Love and Hate

Good afternoon! I read this quote this morning and really loved it…   You cannot see what I see because you see what you see. You cannot know what I know because you know what you know. What I see and what I know cannot be added to what you see and what you know [...]


House Tour: Lived In

I’ve showed bits and pieces of our house over the years and written my thoughts on whether I regret our home purchase.  I go through stages where I love and then hate our house.  I’m currently in a liking it phase, so I thought it was a good time for a house tour!   When [...]


Stuff I Did Today

Encountered a major traffic jam at the top of the stairs. This happens every single morning.  The dogs are afraid to walk past Ferguson, who knows it and goes super slowly to screw with their heads.    Made a cup of coffee using my teapot and strainer. Because I broke my coffee maker. Very sad. [...]


Last Week’s Workouts (Namaste!)

Good morning! Look, it’s a breakfast of Healthy Tipping Point days past.  I woke up this morning thinking, “I really want a yogurt mess!” so that’s what I made.  I used to eat this for breakfast all of the time, but I’m on a pretty firm egg kick these days.   In the mix:   [...]


Saturday Hike

Happy weekend! We spent Friday running errands – lots of car time.  By the end of the day, my child was going nuts from lack of energy expenditure.  He is definitely the type of kid that NEEDS exercise to be happy and calm… Sound familiar because I am exactly the same way, too!   To [...]
