Friendsgiving plate

Happy Monday, my dear friends!  I hope your weekend was as great as mine.  We are now rolling into the final five-day work week of November, and my holiday spirit is in full gear.  It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, but I am more than looking forward to [...]

girls at the lake

This past Saturday was the epitome of summer.  It was a Whole 30 Saturday at the lake.  Doing the Whole 30 may not scream "fun," but I made it work and had a blast with some of my favorite people. Jeremy and I met up with Erin (and her husband, Josh), Jordan (and her husband. [...]

"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are"- Theodore Roosevelt thanks to Erin for this picture! Do What You Can, When You Can {Sweat, Cycle & Soul Review} I do not normally start off my posts with quotes from famous people.  In fact, I never have.  But this one just seemed fitting! [...]

Saying "Sí" to Springtime and Drinking Wine I had the best day on Saturday.  It was literally the perfect Spring day.  Temperatures were in the 70's, the sun was peaking through the clouds, and downtown Omaha was hopping, though a bit breezy... but when is it not windy in Nebraska?  Despite the wind, I did manage to [...]

Have I got a restaurant to talk to you about today! I could not possibly go through last week without eating a little Mexican food, right?  And even though I shared 55 recipes that were perfect to make on Cinco de Mayo, I am guilty of not having made a single one.  In fact, I [...]

Happy Sunday, all!  I hope your first weekend in May is treating you well.  Mine has been great so far.  My mom is in town visiting, and we have been enjoying filling our days with a little relaxing, plenty of shopping, and some delicious eats.

Spin Pizza Fig Onion Marmalade 2

As I mentioned last week, adopting a gluten-free diet at home has been pretty darn easy for me.  I realized that I do not eat as much gluten as I thought, and with some simple substitutions like GF bread and oats, I have been tackling a gluten-free diet just fine. My biggest struggles with following [...]

Greek Chickpea Salad 4

A super simple Greek-inspired chickpea salad that is chock full of veggies.  It is a delicious spring/summer side dish and the perfect make-ahead lunch. I am craving salads like mad right now. Salads with lettuce, salads with pasta (GF now), and of course one of my favorites, chickpea salads. At this point I am not discriminating. [...]

Modern Love Jackfruit Pasole

Remember a couple of weeks back when I posted about my weekend back home to celebrate my dad's birthday and my birthday?  I'm doing the same thing again, but this time we are talking about my birthday and Jeremy's birthday!  Somehow I got lucky and was able to celebrate my birthday twice.  I'm not quite sure [...]
