15-Minute Easy Summer Skillet

15-Minute Easy Summer Skillet

It’s suuummmer. Officailly in my book. Who cares if the calendar says it’s still 15 days away…I don’t. I know this girl agrees. But seriously, who waits until June 20th (or 21st) to start summer celebrating?! Hanging out at the pool, farmer’s markets, gardens, sunscreen, swimsuits, the windows down, babies in cute hats, grilling, and sunshine…it’s all … Continue reading

Embrace the Mess

Embrace the Mess

This whole grieving process is a wild ride. Some days I’ll feel perfectly normal and sane. Other days, the tears won’t stop. Actually, I hadn’t really cried much since the week my mama died. We had two funerals for her (one in Colorado, one in Texas), and I didn’t cry at either. It was kind … Continue reading

Cereal Cookies

Cereal Cookies

Sometimes you just need a cookie, you know? Oh, and I’ve been meaning to tell you guys, fitmixer has recently sponsored me to be part of their bootcamp – which is going really well. Not that I need to lose much weight, but I have gotten a little lazy in the food department (ahem, ice … Continue reading

Look Alikes

Look Alikes

My husband, or my baby? Meek found this picture of himself at one year old, and we are flipping over  the similarities. Seriously, if the above didn’t look like it was from 1986 and there wasn’t a basketball sitting next to that blue-clad-baby…I’m not sure I could tell the difference. I obviously had to re-create … Continue reading

Yogurt Berry Tarts with Graham Cracker Crust

It feels like summer, doesn’t it?! If you’ve been reading this little old blog for a year, you will know that summer is my all-time, hands-down, by-far-and-away, no-contest favorite season. I wait all year just to feel those first drops of summer sunshine. I used to think it had a lot to do with the … Continue reading

Garden Couscous Salad

Garden Couscous Salad

Oh hey there! I’ve really missed you guys. I’ve missed making food, taking pictures of it, and having you all tell me it looks delicious. I’ve missed you inviting yourself over for dinner. I’ve missed you all telling me that you want to nibble on my baby’s cheeks.  That’s not weird, right? Oh and speaking … Continue reading

Guest Post: Yes, I Want a Casserole.

My guest post today is from Janeeetha. No, she doesn’t really spell her name like that, but I picture it that way in my head. And when I picture Janetha in my head, I imagine her standing in my front yard being drowned by boxes of swag. Because that actually happened. I got to meet … Continue reading

Gratitude

Gratitude

Whenever I was sad, or in a bad mood as a kiddo, my mom always suggested that we write down as many things as we could think of to be grateful for. Usually, we’d get a big yellow legal pad out, and she’d start. I was always huffing and rolling my eyes when we started, … Continue reading

Guest Post: Lindsay’s How To Series Kickoff

My guest post today comes from Lindsay, one of my very best friends. Or BLENDS. (yeah…we planned the BLEND Retreat together.) Actually, she twisted my arm into planning the BLEND Retreat with her. I’m so glad she did. And I’m so glad she wrote this post for me. I’m back from Texas, and officially back … Continue reading

Guest Post: Ashley’s Edible Perspective

Guest Post: Ashley’s Edible Perspective

My guest poster today, Ashley, doesn’t really need an introduction. You’re probably already in love with her blog, her breakfasts, her photography, and her sweet face, like I am. She introduced me to IKEA in Denver. We hiked the Flatirons in Boulder together. We’ve taken more self- portrait iphone pictures than I can count. We … Continue reading
