24 was hard. I accomplished a lot, but I also felt that I left a lot to be desired. I know I didn’t work as hard as I could have to achieve my goals and therefore, some goals went unmet. I learned that dreams don’t work unless you do. 24 was the year that tested me … Continue Reading

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday morning! I wanted to do a post today focusing on one of my favorite nutrient-filled, easy-peasy breakfasts… The Green Smoothie!!! I’ve had a lot of people ask me about my recipe for this throughout the years and honestly, it’s usually something different everyday. There’s really no rhyme or reason to it … Continue Reading

HELLO! Long time no see! I’ve gone a liiiittle silent lately if you haven’t noticed. The last few weeks I have had a hard time posting content on my site. Why is this?

Spring might have hit the pause button today here in the Midwest, but that doesn’t mean we can’t shop and pretend it’s beautiful out!

Goodbye, Spring Break… I always have conflicted emotions on Sundays. Sometimes I revel in the peace and tranquility of being alone in my little apartment, prepping for the week … Continue Reading

Goooood Morning! It’s a beautiful Saturday here in Mitchell, SD and I’m whipping up an easy, delicious, healthy breakfast…What could be better?

Anytime there’s a girls’ night about to happen, I’m about 98.5% sure there’s a group text happening, consisting of, “What are we wearing?”. This last weekend, some of my best friends (Megan, Laura, & Rachel) came to visit me in our college town for a night out, reminiscent of the good ol’ days we spent … Continue Reading

Really, really hoping Punxsatawney Phil is right and winter is almost over. It’s cold and windy today and I’m contemplating (once again) why I live somewhere where the wind hurts my face. Something I’ve discovered the last few months is a love for a layered button up/sweater combo. Not only does the extra layer keep me … Continue Reading
