Hello?  Is this thing on?  Lord, I hope some of you are still around and have stuck with me through the silence these past two months!  Other than one Friday Favorites post in December, it has literally been that.  Silent.  A silent blog.  Silent social media accounts.  Heck, I wasn’t even approving/responding to comments!

But I promise it was with good reason.  You see, ever since Saturday, November 12th (yes, I remember the exact date), I have felt as though I have been living through a 24 hour, seven days per week hangover.  For NINE weeks straight!

Now if that didn’t give it away…

The Reason I Have Been MIA on the Blog... We're Pregnant!… we’re pregnant!

It turns out that running a food blog when you feel nauseous all day long is a lot easier said than done.  Luckily, I feel as though I am finally starting to come out of the thick of it all.  Which means you just might get TWO posts this week!  I hope to be back soon with more deets on this exciting addition to our family.

Stop the numbers game and start focusing on what matters: happiness | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com #selfcare #selflove #bodypositive

Stop the Numbers Game I have always been a competitive person, which I think largely stems from my tendency to seek out perfectionism in myself.  Growing up, I often felt like I was in competition with my classmates for who could earn the best grades in school.  My brother and I were especially competitive when [...]
