White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

This past weekend, we entered a chili cook off contest.  Correction: Lance entered us (read: me) into the contest.  Friends of ours were putting it on for charity, and if you read my New Year’s post, you saw that my number one goal this coming year is to give back more.  So even though I was out of town all week, and I’ve never cooked anything in bulk before in my life…we entered a chili cook off LOL. We had no intention in winning…we just wanted to bring some good chili.  My favorite chili is a chicken chili that I make often, and I thought it would break up all the tomato based beef chilis.  It is really delicious, especially […]

Atlanta Market Trip

Happy Friday!!  I just got back from another whirlwind market trip to Atlanta.  I was buying summer deliveries, but some of the lines were showing fall already!  Crazy, right??  I thought it would be fun to round up some of what I chose from market.  Sorry in advance…I didn’t take these pictures intending to put them on the blog, but I just thought it’s something you will be interested in seeing!  The lighting is horrible at these shows and the samples never look as good as the finished product will, so the pictures are always so bad.  It does give a realistic peek into what it’s like to actually buy, though…I feel like people see New York Fashion Week and […]

My Fitness Journey

Alo Yoga Bra // Leggings Happy Friday!  I thought you might enjoy reading about my fitness journey, my current fitness routine, and my general thoughts on fitness. I played soccer in middle and high school, but I wasn’t very good at it or serious about it.  When I was in college, all I can remember doing for fitness were long power walks with my girlfriends and maybe the elliptical machine for 30 minutes on occasion.  The first time I ever worked out consistently was after college.  I started taking yoga classes, and I really enjoyed it.  I was also a member at a gym, so I would do some cardio, too: the treadmill, elliptical, or the stair climber.  I love […]

A Weekend in Naples

Happy Monday!  Worst Monday of the year, am I right??  The Monday after the Superbowl is always so hard.  And let me tell you…I went from 30 days of vegan to EATING EVERYTHING for the past few days, so needless to say I feel pretty terrible.  Oh, and one night at dinner my girlfriend and I EACH had a bottle of rosé, so that happened.  It’s been fun, but it’s ending tomorrow!  I’m going back off cheese (for the most part), cutting back on wine again, and if you read my last vegan post (HERE), I’m cutting back on carbs and concentrating on whole foods.  I’ve GREATLY enjoyed my break, but I am looking forward to eating clean again! I […]
