Weekend Recap: Pizza and Baby Bedrooms

Thin and Crispy Pizza - Kohler Created

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 […]

Things We’re Loving – PowerICE Edition

PoweICE Review - Kohler Created

It’s been a while since we did a “Things We’re Loving” post, so I thought today I’d take the helm and show you a few of the things we’ve been enjoying over here. Power Ice: Remember these things as a kid? At the pool, a treat from Mom on a hot day? Super refreshing and […]

Slow Cooker Pork or Beef Pot Roast

Pork or Beef Pot Roast Recip - Kohler Created

First, I have to apologize. This is one of our most asked for recipes among our friends and I always assumed we had posted it, and just kept directing people to the blog to find it. Apparently we never did blog it. We talked about it, but I never put the recipe up. Slow Cooker […]

Sourdough Pizza Crust


Over the weekend we were forecasted to get a major winter snowstorm. They were talking 10+ inches of snow and super cold temperatures. The town was a frenzy of people trying to prepare to be trapped for days. But nothing happened. We got a little ice, it was indeed really cold, but nothing more than […]

We are done with Whole30, now what?

Whole 30 Salad

Ack! Time just gets away from me during the week. I’ve been working on a writing intensive project at work, and by the time I am through with my day, all I want to do is work out and read books. I’ve been reading voraciously lately — but that’s another post. My ginormous salad and […]

Whole30 Challenge: What will we keep?


Is anyone else tired of winter yet? Blegh. I think it’s safe to say that as we near the end of the Whole30 Challenge, our thoughts are definitely mixed. On one hand, we desperately needed a dietary reset and the overall results (both physical and emotional) have been pretty impressive. We needed the reset, and […]

The Whole30 Challenge: Week 2


I mentioned in our last post that we’ve somewhat hit a groove with Whole30 and are starting to feel the physical/mental differences so many people talk about. While that is exciting to see and feel, we’ve also definitely hit some hurdles/annoyances. Sponteneity is Dead Because meals have to be prepped and prepared from scratch, and […]

The Whole30 Challenge: Week 1


We are officially in day 2 of our Whole30 Challenge with our box. Sorry for the lack of lead up, but getting everyone at the box set up kind of took priority. Nonetheless, I’ve been looking forward to this challenge for a few months now, mostly because after HOA and the holidays, our diets and […]

Polar Vortex Survival Stir Fry


There is something especially cruel about record-breaking cold temperatures that makes ice and snow even more isolating. As if the early darkness each night weren’t enough! Winter is always fuzzy and cute during the holidays, but the moment it’s over, it seems to drag us unrelenting through January and February. I’m ready for a hint […]

Christmas Break


Our Christmas was delightfully unstructured and relaxing this year. We took off the 23rd and 24th, so we enjoyed a full five days off work. It was amazing. We watched movies, napped, played computer games, and cleaned up around the house. Die Hard is now a Christmas tradition in our house — although I think […]
