Whole30 Nutrition Challenge Recap: Week 4

A little-belated recap of our Week 4 of the Whole30/Nutrition Challenge and honestly it took me about 5 minutes to even remember what we ate last week. No joke, talk about zombie mom! Our last week’s challenge meals were all comfort food. We started the week with big meatloaf we baked in our cast iron […]



Why you should try a Whole30 Challenge

But as we went through the challenge details on Friday, I could tell that the people who were considering the Challenge for the first time were apprehensive, even skeptical of the challenge. And I went home thinking…



Meal Planning (10/4-10/10)

Happy Tuesday! We closed out another busy week last week just in time to start yet another one. I almost can’t wait for winter, just because maybe we’ll finally get to slow down a little bit. Neil is on call this week and we are both finishing up massive freelance projects, all while juggling in-progress […]



Weekend Recap: Pizza and Baby Bedrooms

One last relaxing weekend before another race weekend. Neil requested pizza for our cheat meal this week, and somehow we ended up with enough for several meals. No matter, it was so good! I didn’t think about it till mid-bite about halfway through my personal pizza, but it’s been almost two months since I last […]



Scenes from the Weekend

We were hit with some crazy weather this past weekend. I’m really not trying to start every post with the weather, but this is worth noting. On Saturday, it got into the 60’s. Neil washed and waxed the cars AND cleaned the garage (he loves his domain) while I got a nice run in — […]



A goodbye tribute…

Neil, the dogs and I would like to take a few moments and remember our fridge, Ms. Superba KitchenAid, circa 1994… Oh Superba, you’ve served us well… Okay — Who we are kidding. She was a complete pain in the ass. Despite cleaning this fridge from top to bottom countless times since we moved in, […]

Spicy White Chicken Chili

I know we’ve already covered our now famous Spicy White Chicken Chili recipe, but since it was so long ago (before we took pictures really) I wanted to cover it again and offer it up as another great tailgate recipe idea! This recipe is infamous in our circle of friends. If we have a party, […]



Nate and Sarah’s Wedding Weekend

We had a blast at my cousin’s wedding in Minnesota this weekend. It’s always an awesome time seeing my family. Throughout all the changes, the moves, and distance, they are a constant and an amazing support system to both Neil and I. The weather this weekend however, was the complete opposite. I’ve never been under […]



Our First Foodie Guest Post! Jason and Aurora’s Yummy Hibachi-Style Fried Rice

If you’re like Jason and I, you love food. The problems is often what to make, not where to eat. We love Japanese food. Sushi, teppanyaki, you name it and we’ll eat it. After a recent trip to our local Hibachi grill, we realized that copying the food wouldn’t be that difficult. So after a quick […]
