Fresh and Fruity

Hello! This day was so sweet. It started with a breakfast con Meeker and my parents. I’m always starving immediately upon waking, and my parents were still an hour away, so I had some trail mix to hold me over. Then we headed to a place called Great Beginnings Cafe. When the weather gets warm, … Continue reading

Sunshine Sunday

I just love sunshine. Love, love, love. In order to be outside for as much time as possible today, I decided to plant a flower garden. I’ll show it to you, but you have to promise not to laugh… Promise? I know, it’s kind of sad looking, but geeez…flowers are expensive! I spent a lot … Continue reading

Breakfast of Champions

Good Morning! I hope you all are having lovely long weekends. Anytime that I start my day with cake makes me smiley. Sleeeeepy eyes. Haaaaappy tastebuds. With the breakfast of champions under my belt, I’m off for a run. I’ve been on a green monster kick lately, so I’m sure I’ll have something like this … Continue reading

Yummy, lazy days

I’m stealing Cait’s idea of Noteworthy Nibbles. Mostly because the last two days of my life have been a blur of laziness, and I don’t want to bore you. There has been a little exercise, more sleep than usual, and a ton of yummy food. Ready? I’ve had more than a few of these: spinach, … Continue reading


Weeeee!! It’s official, it’s now summertime. As I typed those words, I could actually feel my shoulders relaxing and my mind clearing. Teaching is an incredibly rewarding profession, but it’s hard work, folks. I can assure you that it’s necessary for teachers to recharge. Otherwise, they’d never come up with any great, new, innovative ideas, … Continue reading


I’m so spent. The end of the year is physically and emotionally exhausting. I of course am beyond grateful for the break, but it’s hard to fathom that another school year has passed, and the little ones with which I have spent 8 hours a day for 10 months are no longer under my care. … Continue reading


Yup. I’m excited. I have ONE day of school left. Let’s get right to it. Breakfast One smoothie: ½ frozen banana, ½ cup blackberries, 1 scoop protein powder, water Lunch – I actually forgot my camera today, but it looked something exactly like this (which I ate a few times this weekend). Pita, cucumber, and … Continue reading

Sunday Tradition

Growing up, my Mama always used to make a big, hot lunch for the family to enjoy after church. Then for dinner, we had to “fend for ourselves” – which meant everyone in the family opted for one of two things: cereal or popcorn. I always went for cereal. Tonight, when dinner rolled around, I … Continue reading

A Cruel Joke

Today was interesting. I stared out with a walk in the cool air with my dog, then returned home for a pilates DVD and some tasty overnight oats. Last night I combined: 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup mashed sweet potato, ½ cup greek yogurt This morning I added: almonds, cinnamon, Kashi Autumn … Continue reading

Veggie Crave

We had our end of the year party from 10:30 – 12:45, and it was extremely fun, extremely tiring, and then I babysat for the next 3 hours. Kids are crazy. I’m exhausted. I had an unbelievable start to the day: 2.5 miles of interval training, and then some weight lifting in our garage gym. … Continue reading
