My Lovely Mom + Early Mother's Day Celebrations

I'm so excited (!!) because my mom is in town (dad too) for Mother's Day weekend.  I have planned a whirlwind of a day for us to celebrate.  By the time you're reading this, she and I will be perusing the Denver Botanic Gardens, taking beautiful pictures of flowers, sipping mimosas, and RELAXING.  Then we'll be heading to lunch in the chic Denver Highlands, followed by hour massages and facials at a local spa!!  I really am giddy just thinking about our day.  :) You've heard that you can tell ...

Blend Part 2 - Oh how I love thee

Blend.  Do you really have to be over?  Do I really have to wait a WHOLE 'nother year for you?  Oh how I love thee!  At the intro session the three gals who envisioned, dreamed, created, and made this thing a reality: Lindsay, Janetha, and Katie said that this wasn't really a weekend about becoming a better blogger.  ...

Blend Part 1 + {From Obese to Healthy}

As many of you know, this weekend was the Blend Retreat in Boulder, CO:  a retreat for healhy living bloggers to meet in person, and enjoy good food, exercise, and conversation.  It was everything I'd hoped it'd be...and more!  I met some amazing women, learned a thing or two about blogging (since almost all of them have been doing this a lot longer than I have!), and got a well-needed break from the craziness of "normal life."  The retreat couldn't have been in a more beautiful spot - Chauta ...

Greek Yogurt Orange Cranberry Clove Bread...DELISH!

This is a bit of an anticipated recipe post - as I made this delicious bread like 3 days ago.  But life has gotten in the way a bit.  Like I said yesterday, when I said "no," work has been absolutely crazy: the hardest most stressful week in 3 years.  Even tonight I found myself working on my laptop rather than blogging.  Yuck!!  On top of that I picked up a sick Babycakes from school today.  When it rains, it pours.   ...

I said no

I took advice from a fellow healthy living blogger, Lindsay (who I am going to meet this weekend!!!) and "said no."  And it felt really good.  This has been the busiest week at work for me in the last three 3 years.  I am working a ton of hours and just trying not to drown daily.  I am constantly having to reprioritize - and honestly, it's DRAINING.  For the couple of hours that I do have before I start again tomorrow, I ...
