{Mango Cured Bacon Goat Cheese Burgers}

If you missed yesterday's guest post by the lovely Corrie Anne, please go back and check it out.  She beautifully illustrated her 5 essentials for a happy healthy life, and did it all with alliteration :)  I don't know about you, but this has been the longest 4 day week in history...ha!  The memories of Memorial Day weekend: a bbq with the extended family, ladderball in the backyard, and beers on the patio seem soooooooooo far away.  But ...

The 5 H's: Humor, Habits, Hugs, Hope, & Haydn

I mentioned awhile back that I wanted to do a couple new fun things with the blog - and one of those is to bring some outside perspectives (every once in awhile) on what others believe to be the essentials for a happy healthy life.  Afterall, that's the goal of this blog!!  I am soooooo excited to bring the next post in the series to you, from my blogger friend Corrie, a fellow Coloradan.  She is one of the first bloggers I started following when I was starting out.  I was immediately d ...

100th Post + {Prosciutto & Fig Goat Cheese Pizza}

Today we are celebrating something special - this is my 100th blog post!  Thank you again for joining me in this journey! I am excited to share a fabulous pizza recipe, originally inspired by my lovely mom.  Hers was covered in carmelized onions, which I'm sure would be good.  But dear hubby HATES onions.  Really, hate is a nice term for his overwhelming loathing of the sometimes smelly vegetable.  Dear hubby and I have been married for almost 8 years, but each time we're at my parents' house I have to remind them of his dislike hate of onions. 

Running, Playground Strength Training & Lunges, oh my!

I started off my long weekend right with some serious exercise!  Afterall, I have some new goals to hit.  And in order to hit them, I need to focus on healthy clean eating and moving MORE! Since I was by myself with Babycakes, I didn't get many pictures of ME doing the exercises, but I did get a lot of cute shots of Babycakes copycatting mommy :)  Here she is trying slightly elevated pushu ...

I feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty...{Reward Photoshoot}!
