Decaffeinated …

Late this afternoon I realized I had no coffee today. NO. COFFEE. I wasn’t even trying not to. I just started this day CRAZY busy and it stayed that way all day. You would think that it would have occurred to me that I hadn’t had coffee at 1 pm when I realized I hadn’t eaten yet either. Seriously, it was one of THOSE days. But honestly, I’m in shock. As an avid coffee drinker I’m at a loss. How? I somehow survived the whole day with NO COFFEE. I didn’t die. No one was harmed. And the world didn’t end. Whoda thunk?!?!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are decaffeinated!!!



I went to Sprouts and Trader Joe’s today and I think that it’s important to let everybody know something … PUMPKIN HAS ARRIVED, YIPPIE!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you have a very important announcement!!!

Happily stinky …

I am one excited foodie! Today we are headed to the Gilroy Garlic Festival. We haven’t been in years so I am really looking forward to it. If you have never been, you are missing out. It is so much fun and the food is AMAZING! If you are a lover of all things garlic you definitely won’t be disappointed!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are happily stinky!!!

Squeezed for time …

I began a 3-day juice cleanse today. I’ve used detox teas and other detox drinks before but I have never done a true juice cleanse. I’m one day in and I can tell you this. It is EXTREMELY time consuming if you do your own juicing. I understand why people just opt for pre-made juices that are available now. They have a life!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you aren’t squeezed for time!!!

Ready to eat (in Alaska) …

This summer I am traveling to Alaska with a friend of mine. I can’t wait! I’ve always wanted to go. AND the best part of our trip is that we get to spend time with one of our closest friends and her family.

For weeks now we have been discussing all the places we will go once we get there. It’s all very exciting! Because I’m a big foodie, FOOD has come up a few times. I love experiencing the places I travel to through food. You literally get a taste for the region. It’s so fun! 

This morning I woke up early and was bored so I turned to social media, HA! On my Facebook newsfeed I found an article  “The Best Burger by State”. Well, that got me going. I proceeded to research all “The Best” food recommendations for Alaska … and send them all to my friends. Did I mention it was early?

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are ready to eat!!!

A sour day (YAY!) … 

If you haven’t noticed by now, I am a major FOODIE. And I’m happy to say that I’ve raised a bunch of them too! I’ve always strived to teach my crew the importance of balance in their lives but especially in the areas of fitness and nutrition. Despite the hard work and diligence that goes into both, I always wanted them to find the joy them too. When it came to nutrition and the foods they ate I wanted them to understand that it didn’t all just magically pop out of our oven or refrigerator. I wanted them to understand that there was a process and a love that goes into the growing and preparing of food, long before it ever entered our home. So over the years we frequently found ourselves at food festivals and local farms and shops enjoying how REAL food was made. It’s been so much fun!

Today we are heading out to make more food adventure memories. We will be attending a Lemon Festival. With all four of my kids home I couldn’t be more excited to share this pucker-faced day with them!

Well, I hope you all have a sour day!!!

A little taste of magic …

My girls and I had Unicorn Frappuccinos today. They are a new limited-time only drink made by Starbucks. I’m not big on sweet drinks or cow’s milk, but THIS I had to try. Come on, any drink called “a unicorn” is worthy of a try! At least in my book anyway! So did I like it? Actually, yes. It’s a sweet and sour drink and pretty too, HA! It’s definitely not something I would have every day or even once a month. For me it was a ONE and DONE thing. Which I figured it would be. But heck, any opportunity I get to have an encounter with a unicorn is one I just have to take. 

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get a little taste of magic!!!
