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!

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.   Sh ...
