Happy Birthday to me! (+ a wedding planning update!)

breakfast_in_bed

Good morning, friends! Guess what? Today is my 30th birthday! :) It’s off to a good start — I slept in (that being a relative term here — til 7:15, haha) and Matt made me breakfast in bed before work. <3 Who else agrees that working on your birthday should be illegal, btw? I’m not sure where the time has gone — I can’t believe Continue Reading …

Morning, friends! Guess what?! Today is my last day of my clinical hospital internship! One more box checked and one step closer to (finally) being a Registered Dietitian. A number of you have asked what’s next for me on my grad school/RD journey — I’ll share more details soon, but basically I get next week off and then start my 10 week fall Continue Reading …

Morning! I promised you all the recipe for the gluten free quinoa pancakes I made on Saturday morning, so here it is! Matt and I both really enjoyed these. They aren’t huge and fluffy like buttermilk pancakes, so don’t make them expecting that, but they have great flavor and are a fun (and healthy) way to mix it up from traditional Continue Reading …

Today is Matt’s 30th birthday! :) Yes, his shirt says “30 and Dirty.” Inspired by the shirt that my girl Elle wore to our mud run last September right after her 30th birthday! As you can imagine, by the end of the night, his shirt was completely covered in signatures and ridiculous quotes. A couple of Matt’s best guy friends and I Continue Reading …

Morning, friends! I decided to mix things up a little bit for breakfast this morning and finally try a Fitnessista breakfast cookie! I’ve been seeing these around the blog world for years — it was time. Her recipe for the cookie (linked above) is more of a general guideline — the point is to get creative with it, so I did! Here’s Continue Reading …

Morning, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was busy but fun, as usual. :) On Friday night, Matt and I went out to dinner with some friends, followed by a lazy Saturday morning of sleeping in and waffles. I somehow slept until 9:30?! I must have needed it — I haven’t slept that late in ages! I randomly bought a package of Continue Reading …

Busy Weekend!

Hello friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend! Mine was busy but fun. On Friday night, Matt and I went out to dinner with a big group of friends, followed by a lazy Saturday morning that involved pancakes. :) Matt and I made them using the Arrowhead Mills buttermilk pancake mix you see in the back. We followed their directions and I also Continue Reading …

High Protein Oatmeal Recipe

Morning, friends! I have a simple new recipe for you all today. Remember when I tried “Oatless Oats” awhile ago but wasn’t a big fan of the texture? Well, I decided to try a new version of high protein oatmeal, adding eggs to the mix but leaving some oats in there as well for texture purposes. It came out awesome! This is a simple Continue Reading …
