If you know me you know I am the LAST person you will catch on a camping trip. I mean, don't get me wrong I love the idea of camping: the great outdoors, fresh air, exploring nature, picturesque views, campfire s'mores...but sleeping on the ground? No thanks. #queenofcomfort

Enter Getaway House.  It is the perfect place for those of us who like to be outdoorsy but not "campy." About two hours outside of Atlanta in Georgia's Blue Ridge mountains the drive in and of itself is simply stunning: windi...

I saw a great post from The Baker Mama on how to use up some of that halloween candy in some yummy freezer cookie dough and decided to put my own spin on the recipe!  These are great for making ahead and freezing for whenever you have a bunch of kiddos over or just feel the need for something sweet :)

I used my perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe for these and they turned out great.  Here's how I did it:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Follow directions for The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies and omit th...

   Before FWTFL |  8 weeks after starting program (March)  |  8 months after starting (September)

About six months after having my second baby I found myself in a rut.  We've all been there.  Doing all the things that we've been told to do in order to lose the fat and feel good.  As a lifelong athlete who was raised by a professional athlete being "healthy" has always been a way of life for me.  So when I hit that stall out six months post partum I went back to my old phi...

We finally caught a break from the never ending heat here in Atlanta so I took full advantage and whipped up some of this DELISH white chicken chili!  I started with a base recipe that I thought I was going to use and ended up winging it most of the way.  The end result was the best chicken chili I have ever put in my mouth!  It's a healthy, filling meal that goes a long way and is packed full of nutrients so you can feel good about what you're eating too!

Here's what you'll n...

One of my favorite things to do with the kids is to decorate cookies during the holidays.  I came up with a super easy way to make some fun monster cookies & ice cream sandwiches for Halloween using Voortman's new fall flavor - Pumpkin Spice! They are baked with real pumpkin and made with no artificial colors or flavors AND no high-fructose corn syrup so they taste super yummy! 

I also love these because they are pretty fool proof.  No pinterest fails here!  

Here's what you'll...

Hey guys! I love the #nsale because of all the great deals for fall, winter, gifts and beauty. I'm going to give you all the things I normally look for in this sale.  There are MANY good deals but I aim for the things that:

1) are fall/winter staples that won't be on sale this fall/winter and

2) things that normally never go on sale

Here's my round up of women's clothes and shoes!

WOMENS TOPS AND BOTTOMS:

I am a big fan of reusable cups over here.  I love that they are easy to wash, keep my beverages hot/cold for a long time, help me get all the H2O I need each day and prevent me from doing more dishes than I already do! I have them for pretty much everything: coffee, water (home & gym), wine, etc.  I've also started using reusable stainless steel & silicone straws over the last couple of years and will never go back.  The thing about sustainable drinkware is that it's not one size fits all.  Som...

Cinco de Mayo has come and gone but SUMMER IS COMING and the season's favorite vegetable is ready for some lovin'.  I decided I wanted to add a little oomph to our grilled corn on the cobb the other night and being that it was Cinco de Mayo, Mexican street corn just felt right.  Typically Mexican street corn calls for mayo, sour cream and cheese. To lighten things up, I swapped out regular mayo for Chosen Foods avocado oil mayo and replaced the sour cream with Siggi's non fat plain yogurt (you c...

A lot has changed since our Chloe girl has come into the world.  One of those things has been the amount of free time I have!  I wanted to throw our little girl the sweetest first birthday but truly just didn't have the time to spend coordinating it all.  I also didn't want to drop a ton of moola hiring out other people to do it for me. So I decided to keep it simple yet beautiful.  First up: the location. 

We are lucky enough to live near a cute old historic park in Atlanta s...

Raise your hand if you made a New Year’s resolution to take better care of yourself *raises hand*. We spent the better part of 2018 knee deep in all things newborn and then all of a sudden it was winter (aka cold and flu season). While the holidays were wonderfully full of sweets and lazy mornings, it’s time to hit the reset button.
