    Meal Prep How To for Beginners – Easy Mini Meal Prep For Anyone!

    When I lived in New York, I was really good at doing meal prep pretty often. Although I had a full-time job, I tried my best to do some sort of prep on Sundays so I wouldn’t eat a bunch of junk at the office. Funny how I made more time for it back then when I had WAY less time to do so! Since we’ve moved to Montana, I’ve worked from home, so it’s a lot easier for me to make healthy meals from home.  But I still like having healthy meals and/or snacks on hand so that I’m not spending extra time in the kitchen during the week!…

    In my last post, I talked all about how we found out we were expecting and how we told our families. Now onto our first and second pregnancy appointment and how I learned pregnancy is one long waiting game! My First Appointment Waiting… So after the excitement of seeing those pink lines wore off (just kidding, that never happened, we get more and more excited with each day that goes by!), it was time to schedule my first pregnancy appointment with my doctor!

  • We’re having a baby!

    As everyone already knows, we are expecting our first baby girl in June 2019! We are over the moon excited and soaking in every second of this amazing journey.  As everyone also knows, Josh and I waited quiiiiite a while before we decided to try for kids. If you had told me when I got married at 24 that I would be 31 when I have my first child, I would have said you were nuts! I mean, I didn’t even think I’d be really young, maybe like 27 or so, but life had other plans, and I’m thankful things worked out how they have! I can’t imagine if we…

  • Why Blogging?

    If you know me or are friends with me on Facebook, then you might know I started a blog back in 2013. The focus of that blog was a little different than this one, and I was at a very different time in my life. I can’t believe that was almost 6 years ago!
