The Difference (+ Meal Plan Monday)

April 22, 2013

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was relaxing, revitalizing, jam-packed, smile-inducing—or whatever you hoped it would be. Besides running around Boise all day Saturday, and meal prepping like a mad woman on Sunday, I spent a lot of time thinking about big life changes ahead—about the career path I’m embarking upon, about where I want […]

First Jobs and Fresh Guac

April 18, 2013

TGIF, y’all! One of the reasons why I think it would have been fun to grow up in the South (besides epic BBQ, crawfish boils, and wearing pearls and  frilly dresses to tailgate parties) is so I could legitimately greet people with “y’all.” I would never dare say it out loud in Boise or DC, for […]

Cereal and Bacon

April 17, 2013

Before beginning this post,  I want to take a moment to reflect about the Boston tragedy. No words can fully express the sadness in my heart, and I can’t even begin to imagine the pain and grief that’s blanketing those who were affected. I’m praying that God fills hearts with comfort, bodies with healing, and souls with […]

Flapjacks and a Fast Food Fix

April 12, 2013

Haaaaaapppy Fridaaay! Whoooo—the weather man described it best when he proclaimed it “sunny but squally” yesterday! The Boise winds sure were feisty when I headed to the gym in the morning, but that didn’t deter me from going by foot, as my mom only lives 10 minutes from the YMCA.  I’ve found that the “warm […]

Friday Five in Five

April 5, 2013

The weekend is so close that I can practically…taste it! And right now it’s tasting rather rich and chocolaty…   Welp. Sorry, I couldn’t help it! I think it’s safe to say that I just penned the #1 contender for corniest post introduction ever. Since it’s Friday–and only because it’s Friday—please forgive me? Please? What I was trying […]

WIAW: Eating Up in the Air

April 3, 2013

Howdy and hello from Boise, Idaho! source  WHEW–-I made it! Yesterday was quite the whirlwind of a travel day.

90’s Fashion Trends and a Monster Morning Potato

March 29, 2013

Happy Friday! Can I get a T.G.I.F.?! Lordy, the past few days have crawled by. I’ve been experiencing day later syndrome all week—you know, thinking it was Friday when it was actually Thursday—and I’m chalking it up to the fact that in just four days, I’ll be heading home to this… Here comes the sun…do do […]
