Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends!!

Let’s appreciate this day and share in the excitement of knowing that it’s now okay to sing Christmas songs out loud!

I’m going to keep this post extremely short because it’s all about being surrounded by friends and family, I plan to shut off from the online world as soon as I hit the Publish button. And I hope that you’re able to do the same.

With that, I am leaving with just a few things I’m thankful for:

  • I’m healthy and so are my friends and family!
  • I get to wake up and do something I love every day!
  • We’re having a blended Thanksgiving! My parents + Dan’s family = the first combined holiday!
  • My amazing husband.
  • YOU! I have the best real life and virtual friends a gal could ask for. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Gingerbread Recipe

When we were in the mountains last week, I had the best piece of pumpkin bread of my life. It rocked my world. One of the volunteers dates a chef, she was kind enough to make all the food for the weekend. I enjoyed that chunk of bread at the half way mark (water station) […]

November 24, 2014

This is the week where we all look in the mirror and thank God (or whoever) for what we’re grateful for. It’s the time where we realize how much we take for granted and how truly special/blessed we all are. According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs all we really require, in order, is: Physiological needs […]

Thanksgiving kettlebell workout

Next week will be a week of overindulgences for most of us. Yes? Thanksgiving in the states means we will wake up and not only stuff a turkey, but ourselves. The average American will consume roughly 4,500 calories on Thursday alone. That’s insane! It’s over 2 days worth for most of us. I don’t think […]

If your grandmother’s apple pie had a heated love affair with a carton of melted vanilla ice cream, this shake would be their love baby. I’m not kidding. It’s that good. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

mustache you

Good-bye Charleston! We are headed to the mountains. And possibly some snow. But let’s not talk about that as we’re a bit nervous about driving a stick shift Mazda 3 into a blizzard. Just keep your fingers crossed and perhaps say a little prayer. This is the big weekend! I can’t wait to share our […]

kettlebell butt workout

Can we talk about my tush for a moment? When I was a teenager, I nicknamed my own butt “Flatty Patty”. My parents used to joke that my entire rear end was smaller than one of their hands. Yea, yea. Small butt, I get it. Over the past year, I have seen some awesome changes […]

The fun part about signing up for events at the last minute is that you don’t really have a lot of time to freak out. It was just a week ago when Dan and I decided to embark on this crazy 2-day trail run. Instead of focusing on the fear of being under trained, we’ve […]
