The Roast of Skibinski

rp_7670639600_35f40c1d55_z.jpg

First of all, how awesome of a last name is ‘Skibinski’? I don’t know why, but every time I hear it I think of the Szalinski family in ‘Honey I Shrunk the Kids’. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, one of our trainers, Eric, is leaving to enter the Navy Seals in two weeks. It’s […]



Paleo Thai Pork with Almond Sauce

Ah, how is it already Friday!? I feel like this week went so fast! Maybe it’s because we’re fresh off a vacation? We need more of those if that’s the case. We’ve suffered from major kitchen avoidance this week. With triple-digit temperatures nearly all week (Wednesday was nearly being 107 degrees!), it feels impossible to […]



Three Years Married

Today is our three-year wedding anniversary. It’s cliché I know, but really, where does the time go? I was doing some blog work the other night, fixing some posts with broken picture links, and one of the posts was our honeymoon recap. How far we’ve come since then, and wow, how different we look! I […]



BWCA Day 3: Great Views

rp_7599567384_4b43962954_z.jpg

(If you’re just checking into our Boundary Water’s trip, be sure to check out Days 1 and 2 first!) One of the highlights of our trip (for me anyway) was Neil’s breakfasts. Every morning, he was the first up, making breakfast or brewing coffee for us while getting things ready for the day. We had […]



Looking Legit

It has been a while since I did a car post, so I guess I will take a moment to explain why. In 2011 I took the year off of racing to transform my 2003 Nissan 350z from a street car into a full-time track car. If you are an automotive enthusiast you will know […]



BWCA Day 2: Donuts and Relaxation

(If you’re just checking into our Boundary Water’s trip, be sure to check out Day 1 first!) I love that typically our first day on vacation is a lazy and laid-back one. After fighting a losing battle to sleep in with the morning sunshine, we crawled out of our tents around 8:00 and immediately started […]



BWCA Day 1: On the Road

We’re back! We had a wonderfully relaxing trip to the Boundary Waters, and I’m already looking forward to our next trip back, hopefully a little deeper into the woods to explore more of the rivers and backcountry. Toes first, legs next right? A little back story since I left you all mostly hanging last week. […]



Our Long Lost Friend

Pizza! Can you believe I haven’t made a pizza crust in almost a year!? We ate so much pizza before going mostly Paleo (80/20 with our cheat days) that I could almost throw together a crust with my eyes closed. This time however, I had to double-check the recipe. Our pizza tastes have definitely changed […]



Friday Link-up

In a break from work, I randomly decided to build the dogs a fort. I think I was more excited about it than they were. They still indulged me and slept under it begrudgingly. This week has been nuts! I know I keep saying that, but it’s true! We’re off to the wedding of some […]



Photo-less Fourth

It wasn’t until we were in the car on the way home that I realized I hadn’t taken any pictures of our 4th of July festivities. We kind of wanted to be low-key this year. Typically we attend barbecues and see a lot of friends, but this year, we kind of wanted to go tame. […]
