Fall is almost here

Fall is almost here

I hate to say goodbye to summer, but I do love fall fashion! A staple to the fall wardrobe is a jacket. What’s your go-to fall jacket? Denim? Leather? Here are some that I came across that I’d love to add to my closet. What […]

How cute is this look?

Did you know that 1 out of 5 people will develop skin cancer? That’s a pretty scary statistic! I went to my dermatologist today for a full body checkup to make sure all of my spots, marks, etc. are OK. I had noticed a new one on my leg that looked different, so that initially gave me the idea of getting checked out.

I’m happy to say that my dermatologist said everything looks great! That mark on my leg is a sun spot and she said it’s fine.

As I’m sitting here typing this, I’m thinking that I’m really blessed to have gotten a good report today. Sure, I put on SPF when I go to the beach or pool, but there’s been numerous times this summer where I’ve been out and about and I don’t protect myself from the sun.

I want to encourage anyone who is reading this to make an appointment with a dermatologist to get their skin checked. Summer is winding down so now is really a great time to do it!

Goat cheese on toast?

Goat cheese on toast?

Good morning, friends! I tried something different this morning for breakfast – toasted Ezekiel bread topped with goat cheese and sauteed peaches (and of course a smoothie on the side)! It was really delicious and filling. I do think my Ezekiel bread toast is missing […]

It’s raining so what better than some online shopping. Am I right?

Let me know in the comments below.

Have a great day!

Do you guys have Trader Joe’s by you? If you do, but you haven’t been, you should totally go and check them out. I hadn’t been in so long and I went today with the kids and got some great stuff. They carry a good […]

Today’s breakfast smoothie

Today’s breakfast smoothie

We all love smoothies and smoothie bowls in my house. The kids ask for one just about every day. It makes me happy that they love my smoothies because I load them up with veggies & fruit. Sometimes kids can be picky when it comes […]

Gotta Start Somewhere

Gotta Start Somewhere

The kids spent the night at grandma and papa’s house so I didn’t really have any excuses to not go running with my husband this morning. I hadn’t run in months so I knew it would be really hard. I’m so glad I did it!!

Running with someone else is so awesome. Keeps me motivated and stops me from taking too many breaks during the run. I ran the first mile non-stop despite feeling out of breath and like I was going to die (yes, I can be dramatic). My husband is a runner and wanted to keep going until we reached 4 MILES. Since I’m just getting back into exercising we decided to do a run/walk. So, that’s what we did for the next 3 miles – we ran a quarter mile then walked a quarter mile; ran a half mile then walked a half mile, etc. Not gonna lie, it was TOUGH!

I feel really accomplished and very SORE. haha

As you can see from the photo above, my current running sneakers have HOLES in them! I think I’m overdue for a new pair. Right??
I’m a little undecided, but I’m thinking about trying Adidas Ultraboost. I need to try them on and see if they’ll be good for me.

Here’s a link to the sneakers I want to try. What’s your favorite running sneaker?

My hubs and I recently watched a new documentary called Fed Up on Netflix. Usually I can’t get through food documentaries because I’m left with my mouth gaped open saying “WHAT CAN I EAT NOW?” I feel like most of those documentaries say everything is […]
