A carrot slushie?

Last night as we were falling asleep Meeker turned to me and said: Do you want to come to the gym with me early tomorrow morning so I can run you through a workout? Uh…heck yes. I love having a personal trainer husband. So this morning, I started off with some water and a snack … Continue reading

Just following cravings

Like Melissa pointed out, I killed all my junk food cravings yesterday. From French fries to cake…I did it all. Which left me with a need for green when I woke up this morning. My body is pretty dang good at telling me what it needs. Breakfast number one was some serious green. 1 cup … Continue reading

No Rhyme or Reason

Early Bird Special

It’s like tiny tapioca that’s not quite so dense. Have you tried it yet? I was hungry early, so at 11:15 I had lunch, a … Continue reading

Some Housekeeping Items

Hello!! I missed you all while I was speaking Spanish down in Mexico. On the plane ride back I actually considered writing my vacation recap post all in espanol just to keep the vacation mentality alive¸ pero, yo no sé si alguien lo entendería. The first item of business is this: Please bear with me … Continue reading


I’m back from Mexico! We went to Playa del Carmen with Meeker’s family and some family friends of theirs. The trip was short, but refreshing, relaxing, and rejuvenating (RRR). Look at the color of that ocean! When I wasn’t swimming (which was often because the water was the PERFECT temperature), I was sunning/reading… Or jumping … Continue reading
