Memorial Day Weekend & turning 35!

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. .. we were at the Lake – it. was. wonderful.

Just thought I’d pop in and share a little life update and weekend recap.

We’ve been enjoying the spring sunshine.


And this stuff is amazing. I love it on avocado toast or hard boiled eggs.


Loving that we live just a few blocks from the boys’ school.


My new favorite flavor!




Luke and Mom movie date.


sometimes you just have to nap. . . in the middle of the house.


Making cookies with my boys.


Luke is such a great big brother.


5 months old!





Feeling the love with a birthday cupcake.


And a Caribou gift card from my favorite girls.


My 35th birthday started out with birthday BODYPUMP.


And dinner with my family and sisters at Red Robin. Yum! Smile


Followed by ice cream!


And then we headed to the Lake for the weekend.



First boat ride.


Time on the dock.


And <love> with #gopackgo


Time to get ready for work! Hope you had a great one. Smile

Happy Wednesday!

HUMP DAY! LOL. That always make me laugh. Yup, I am a 13 year old boy on the inside. Winking smile 

Anyway, I wanted to share some of my recent eats and favs because I love seeing what other people are eating and making to get new ideas!

Fruit punch spark has been my jam lately.


Usually I’m an orange spark while working out, fruit punch in the morning and then sometimes an afternoon grape spark. #sparkproblems but lately, I’ve been loving fruit punch all. the. time. I will say that I am super excited to try the new limade flavor which is on it’s way to my house right now. I’ve heard amazing things about it. 

This smoothie combo from Carrots ‘n’ Cake. I’ve been trying to cut down on my caramel latte addiction and this smoothie is a great way to get a little taste of espresso without spending $5 at Caribou. And anything with almond butter is a winner for me. 

Pick-Me-Up Smoothie

Speaking of almond butter. . . why did it take me so long to jump on the date + almond butter train?


Deliciousness. It *might* be the perfect after dinner snack to satisfy my sweet tooth. 

And thanks to my friend Chris, I finally found a chia seed pudding recipe that rocks. And it’s super easy. 1/4 cup chia + 1 can light coconut milk. Mix well. Sit overnight. The perfect snack with berries. 

You know what is the easiest meal ever? Frittatas. Seriously, why don’t I make them all the time? I have been loving roasted sweet potatoes + veggies sauteed with a little coconut oil. Topped with eggs and finish in the oven for about 10 minutes. Dinner perfection. And it makes great leftovers! 

These. Crunchy. Salty. Perfection.


And you guys, have you tried RXBAR yet?


They are amazing. They are super yummy. I love eating them for an afternoon snack or after my workouts for some extra protein. And no B.S. ingredients. I don’t love how spendy they are, but that’s probably for the best. . . otherwise I might eat 6 per day. Winking smile I would highly recommend the chocolate coconut or chocolate sea salt. 

And carrot juice.


Honestly, I probably wouldn’t drag out the juicer as often as I do if it weren’t for Luke asking to make carrot juice. Seriously, kid wants to make it every day..  . so, I try to make sure we have the ingredients on hand to make it a few times per week. I always have to make 3 juices – one for me, one for Luke and one for Scott. Bonus points if there is extra for Luke to keep him from drinking mine after he drinks all of his. My go to combo is carrots (lots – probably about 1/2 of a big bag) + 2 apples + 1 lemon. 

Ok – your turn! Recent favorite eats??
