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 ...

{Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes}

Remember Lauren, from Oatmeal after Spinning, who shared this week about 3 essentials to a happy healthy life?  Well, I had the honor of doing a post for her blog which went live yesterday!  By the time you read this, she and I will have had many an hour to chat in real life, photograph our food together (ha!), and just relax at the Blend Retreat in beautiful Boulder, CO.   This weekend, this break, is really exac ...

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 ...

Guest Post - Oatmeal After Spinning!

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 this first post in the series to you, from my blogger friend Lauren.  I haven't been in this "blogosphere" very long, but from the first moment I "met" Lauren, she was such an encouraging ...

Almost {Wordless Weekend}

This weekend was jam-packed full of of living: Hanging out with the fam, creating yummy meals, exploring the mountains, etc...  It was soooooooo jam-packed, that I just got home after 10PM, ran a load of dishes, quickly cleaned out the car, and am trying to get a quick blog post up.  I may be paying for this tomorrow!!  Oh.My.Goodness - you wouldn't believe the mess we can make in just a half day excursion!!  The joys of toddler parenthood I suppose.  Our trip did include cra ...
