8+ inches of snow and a limited amount of food in our house! This is a great time to make use of the crock- pot for soups and hearty meals that will keep hubby full while he plows our long driveway. This is one of […]
Looking for a quick and easy 30 minute meal? This is an easy weeknight meal that you could adapt with so many different ingredients. I made mine with lots of veggies and bacon and made Super Hubby’s with Cheese, Bacon and Kale. When not everyone […]
It is official, we are training for a half marathon in December. This time I am training with a paleo diet. We did 7 miles today and I have not eaten any bread, grains or gluten! So excited with my energy and achievements so far. […]
I had some leftover oranges from last weeks photo shoot so I got inspired to try something new and fun for dinner. I also found a great way to make squash from my garden- I have so much that I am willing to experiment! Orange […]
Today we had a lot of cleaning and organizing to do before my summer vacation officially starts. We went through and organized the kitchen, our attic and our bedroom. In this process we began trying on clothes and realized that in 3 months we had to box up and store another container of “too big for us” clothes. We can’t afford to lose anymore weight, clothes are expensive. Thank God it is summer and we mostly wear our bathing suits!
While we worked around the house I made a crock pot meal. It was great to enjoy this dinner on the back porch after a long day of working. Enjoy!

Brandon and I have picked on my mom for years about her love of Collard Greens. I always thought it sounded so gross and we refused to try my mom’s from Jimmy’s Bar and Grill in Bridgeville. We used to meet there for breakfast when […]
Happy Memorial Day weekend! We are kicking our weekend off with a picnic at Lake Audobon in Reston. Tomorrow Brandon is swimming a 5k there and then on Sunday he is swimming a 2miler and a 1 miler. We headed there tonight […]

My body is tired. I think I will take the day off tomorrow! I am actually physically exhausted, I couldn’t finish my swim tonight because my goggles were fogging up and leaking but rather than pushing through I just stopped and sat on the side waiting for Brandon to finish swimming his 2 miles. UgH! Sometimes we just need to relax and take a rest. Now I am eating some almonds and sitting on my couch in silence. It is WONDERFUL!
Tonight dinner was: Look, my hot oregano is thriving in my garden, what can I make with it? Italian dinner!
Being a school teacher, I get up really early to get to work. I try to squeeze out every last second of sleep in my bed as I can. I will sleep through breakfast, fixing my hair etc. I lay out my clothes the night before […]
