Goodbye Summer!

I realized I haven’t posted a blog in a while… I definitely go through phases of wanting to blog all the time, and then being lazy about it. Plus, I don’t think my life is that interesting a lot of the time… But I thought I would go ahead and do an “update” post about…

Creamy Chipotle Stuffed Peppers

Good Morning! And Happy Hump Day! I’ve finally gotten some work done around the house that I’ve been avoiding… It feels good to check some things off your list! But, I wanted to take a break and come on here and share a new recipe I came up with last night.  I absolutely LOVE Mexican food,…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel …

11 School Days until the Summer Break!……….I think I can… I think I can… Day 4 and 5 of my Real Food Challenge were awesome. I had a smoothie for breakfast Tuesday morning… I was surprised that it kept me full until lunch. I used frozen blueberries, a banana, a cup of spinach, milk and…

A Pretty Good Day…

Tuesdays are usually my least favorite day of the week. I don’t know why, but for some reasons I dislike them more than Mondays. I guess with a Monday, you have the promise of a new week, but Tuesday is just further away from the past weekend and it doesn’t feel any closer to the…

Monday FunDay

Oh, Monday… Back to the grind. I woke up earlier than usual, which is very unlike me. My alarm hadn’t even gone off yet, but I couldn’t fall back asleep, so I took advantage of that time to do my quiet time and just get focused before the work week began. I even got to…
