Meal Planning (10/4-10/10)

Happy Tuesday! We closed out another busy week last week just in time to start yet another one. I almost can’t wait for winter, just because maybe we’ll finally get to slow down a little bit ....more

What I’m Reading Lately

Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s already the weekend. We’ve had a pretty incredible week here ....more

Meal Planning (9/20-9/26)

Happy Hump Day! Our meal planning this week feel totally on point and we’ve been on this upward trend of getting our food act together on the weekends. Of course, as I say that, we have another out-of-town weekend coming our way for Neil’s race ....more

Minnesota State Fair 2015

Beeb added three new states and had her first day at the Minnesota State Fair a few weekends back. It was such a fun, easy trip, and it was soooo good to be back in my home state. We arrived on Friday, had lunch with my Aunt and hit Woodbury Days with my cousin that evening ....more

Meal Planning (9/13-9/19)

So we ended up eating our smoked pork butt for almost the entirety of last week. It ran out by dinner Thursday, so we picked up a pizza (gotta get those gas points at Hy-Vee). I don’t think you can get more frugal than that ....more

Meal Planning (9/6-9/12)

We’re back! So I’ll just come out and say it: Neil is an amazing bargain hunter when it comes to proteins. On Friday, he came across a ridiculous deal on pork butt at Schnucks — 79 cents per pound! ...more

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

It’s Labor Day weekend! I feel like there’s a lot going on this weekend. First home football game of the season, last open pool weekend, an Open Gym shift at the gym, and of course, a three-day weekend ....more

Training Update

Instagram makes day to day training easy to share, but I thought I’d give you a little bit of long-form version on what I’ve been up to lately. I feel like I’ve hit this place of pure joy with my training that has really been missing for a while. And I owe that to Fringe’s new Head Coach Angelo Fosco ....more

Meal Planning (8/23-8/29)

Lightning fast weekend! I made a short trip down to Branson to celebrate Becca’s birthday at the lake and was home by 1pm on Sunday. I laid in the sun, finished a book and a stack of magazines and finally saw Pitch Perfect the whole way through ....more
