It’s the best meal of the year: Thanksgiving Dinner. I’m getting excited right now just thinking about it. The turkey, the mashed potatoes, the stuffing…it’s all so wonderful. I remember my first Thanksgiving after getting married. There were only four of us celebrating in a tiny apartment, but the table was loaded with food. We […]
Last week I hosted a Noonday Collection trunk show. My friend Sarah drove up from Tucson so we could have fun trying on all the beautiful jewelry Noonday has to offer. I only added a few fifteen things to my Christmas wishlist. I set out a few simple appetizers for the guests. We had popcorn, antipasto bites, […]
My favorite part of Halloween is probably the annual “make-the-face-of-your-pumpkin” photo. That never gets old. What does get old? The heat. I know, we choose to live here, but can’t I just wear a scarf once in the month of October? No? Ok fine. I’ll just take my whiny self into the air-conditioned house and curl […]
The first time Joe took a bit of hummus, he proudly exclaimed, “I love this humpus!” Yes, humpus. We laughed so hard that the name stuck. So if you come over and I put out a tray of veggies and humpus, please make sure to refer to it accordingly. For October entertaining, I love to […]
It’s almost Halloween, so it’s time to start thinking about ALL THE CANDY. If you’re gluten-free like me, you’ll want to make sure any candy you eat is safe. Click here or on the image below to find this year’s list of gluten-free Halloween candy. But just because it’s gluten-free, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. So what should […]
Pain comes and goes in my life, but when it comes, it sets up camp for a good while. Weeks at a time when my whole life revolves around pain. Sometimes chronic pain has a name, most of the time it doesn’t. Sometimes that is the hardest part of all. Sometimes people think it’s all […]
We are a few days into homeschooling and the Whole 30. At first I thought we were crazy to start both at once, but I am appreciating the extra energy from the boost of whole foods. We are eating tons of vegetables, good protein, and healthy fats. I don’t think I could have made it […]
We are finishing up our three month stay in Missoula, Montana this week. If you follow me on Instagram, you know how sad I am to leave this beautiful place. The weather, the people, the active lifestyle, and of course the gorgeous scenery has won us over big time. In case you’re ever in the […]
Exercise used to be something that just happened for me. A side-effect of joining various sports teams and growing more competitive at each level. I didn’t have to think about going to the gym, I was just part of the team. And as a team, we practiced. We pushed each other. We worked our butts […]
This week I bought the GIANT bag of carrots at Costco and brought them home only to remember that we didn’t bring our BlendTec to Montana. Hmm, what to do with all the carrots? Then I remembered making garlicky pickled carrots a few years ago and instantly had a craving for them. I whipped these […]
