• LIVING WITH ANXIETY & DEPRESSION. IT’LL ALL BE OK.

    Of course it doesn’t FEEL ok. You don’t even feel normal… but define “ok” and “normal.”   The truth is that you do NOT feel in control with anxiety. Anxiety consumes you. And guess who is anxiety’s best friend…Depression. Yep that little brat likely comes next. Unfortunately they go hand in hand a lot of …

  • HEALTHY EATING: SEARED TUNA STEAKS AND CHARRED ROMAINE

    It’s Monday. I’m sure if you’re anything like me you blew any and every bit of a cheat meal this past weekend. I fully intend on using this week to redeem myself. (Who am I kidding I just had tacos with chips & guacamole) Ok I’ll start tomorrow. However, I thought I would share a …

  • WANT LOW CARB PASTA? TRY THESE ZUCCHINI NOODLES.

    OK let’s be real for a second. We all crave pasta. Carbs, carbs, carbs. That is one of the hardest parts of dieting or eating healthy. No pasta, no pizza, yada yada. (Don’t worry I’ve got an amazing cauliflower pizza substitute coming for you soon too) What if I told you that you could enjoy those …

  • HYDRAFACIAL REVIEW: IS IT WORTH IT? I THINK SO.

    It’s late at night. You’re getting ready for bed. Staring in the mirror picking apart every inch of your face, searching for all the flaws.

  • NASHVILLE: BEST OF SWEETS FOR YOUR SWEET TOOTH

    Ahhhh now here is where the real love affair starts. Dessert. I can’t trust someone who doesn’t love dessert. I personally love it all. I eat healthy pretty much the whole day but there’s one thing that is my weakness: Sweets. Candy, chocolate, cupcakes, donuts…you name it. I recently saw a study that suggested we …

  • NASHVILLE HOTSPOT EATERIES: KID FRIENDLY

    Hey parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, nannies….you get the point here…anyone who deals with kids. How hard is it to tote those little buggers anywhere that isn’t Chuck E Cheese?!

  • HOMEMADE HEALTHY TORTILLA SOUP

    I smell chicken tortilla soup. I’m seriously salivating at the thought. A few weeks ago, Keatyn and I were going nonstop all day then hopped on a plane to meet her dad and my in-laws in Florida that night. After we landed and drove an hour to their house, I was famished. I’m such a …

  • TOP 8 SKIN PRODUCTS I SWEAR BY FOR DAILY USE

      I finally just put my 3-year-old to bed. Geez after the “just one more story” “I can’t sleep without my horse” and “Mom I need a drink of water” speech I get every night I can now finally relax with my glass of wine and TGIT tv shows. Before I started my blog last …

  • MUST HAVE FRINGED BOOTIES

    Such a cute and sassy look on the blog today. When it was warmer weather earlier this week, I took full advantage. I got this amazing belt at a vintage store in Orlando  a few weeks ago and have been itching to wear it. This burgundy romper has an open back. I’m short waisted so …

  • NORDSTROM SALE CONTINUED…KIDS & HOME 40% OFF FAVORITES

    My hubs has been out of town, so I’ve been covered up and finished last night’s blog when my baby girl went to bed. There was no way I could also include the items I loved from the kid and home section of Nordstrom’s 40% off winter sale, without staying up until the wee hours of the morning. …
