Chocolate Chili

After a wonderful book signing event with Melissa Joulwan and her paleo cookbook ‘Well Fed’, I had new paleo inspiration and was dying to put it to use. Ironically, becoming paleo has caused me to become more of a chef in the kitchen. I like to mix it up sometimes now! I made her Chocolate … Continue reading

Fat or Flat?

Lately I have such a shoe debacle. Since our coaches at Milestone CrossFit like to keep the workouts secret until you arrive for your torture, I never know what to wear. It’s become such a joke with me and my sister. We are ridiculous and fret over what’s the best outfit for the day’s WOD. … Continue reading

Spring time, bikini time

My family has always joked about my huge bathing suit collection. It’s true – I have a problem that cannot be contained to the confines of one small drawer in my bedroom dresser. I love any excuse for the purchase of a new one. Victoria Secret is my stand by and go-to choice for most … Continue reading

I can’t help but wonder how much should the average girl spend on their dress? What is the “social norm” ? I used to think I would have to have … Continue reading

“To give is to receive.”

Before I admit something totally embarrassing, I’d like to start out with a little reminder…What’s the true meaning of Christmas? December 25th is the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. We gather with our family and friends and share good times, good food and presents. Christmas means celebration, decoration and giving. So why … Continue reading

Bust Out Your Boots

The best thing about winter is ________. BOOTS!!!!!! I’m totally obsessed with boots. I even have a pinboard devoted to this obsession.

Here’s a … Continue reading

cafetière à piston

My birthday has come and gone. I am another year older and wiser. From my generous birthday haul, I received a French Press. My French Press gets me out of bed in the morning and fuels me with extra caffeine. If you love coffee and you have never used a French Press, I highly suggest. … Continue reading
