We’re Going Vegan

Happy Friday!  I’ve mentioned that Lance and I decided to go vegan for January, so I wanted to elaborate on why we decided to do this, share my initial grocery haul, show you what I’ve been eating, and share my thoughts on the first full week! Generally, I keep my diet and workout routine pretty regimented.  During the Holidays, I overindulge.  I always do it.  I don’t even try NOT to do it.  It’s my favorite time of the year and to me, food and the Holidays just go hand in hand.  Being in retail, I don’t really get a break from Thanksgiving to the New Year (we even have to do a physical inventory of the store on NEW […]

Hostess Gift Guide

I feel like one of the hardest gifts to give is the neighbor/teacher/babysitter/party host/co-worker, etc. who you don’t want to spend a ton on, but you want to acknowledge with a gift.  I’ve compiled a list in multiple price ranges that I feel fit this category perfectly.  Most of them involve food…haha! Mason Jar + Snack Mix OK, so one of the things that I notice about the holidays…I get TONS of sweet treats from people and barely anything salty.  And I love, love sweets, but I honestly get a little worn out on them during the holidays.  Last year, one of our customers brought a big container of snack mix to the store and it was the best gift […]

Turkey Soup Recipe + Ulta Buys + $50 Mom Jeans

Happy FRIDAYYYY!!  Who’s excited it’s the weekend?!  ME.  Haha.  I thought I would share a recipe I made this past week plus what I picked up from Ulta! This turkey soup I made was SO yummy for how simple and easy it was.  This was a recipe born out of, ‘we just got back into town and have no food, what can I scrounge up from the freezer??’  I keep ground turkey frozen at all times, and I had these carrot spirals frozen from Trader Joes, so that seemed like a good place to start.  I had actually planned to make meatballs to put in the soup, but I got lazy, so this is what I ended up doing! Turkey […]
