life lately…as told by selfies

You can tell so much about a person by looking at the photo’s on their phones. I realized this when I was thinking about what type of post I wanted to write about. I thought “What have I been doing lately? Anything new to report? What has been on my mind?” I always look to my photo’s because that always gives me a good idea of what I have been doing.

Well I can tell you what has been taking up all my spare time. Online Coaching/Supporting my Challenge Group participants and… Selfies. Goodness. You can tell my life revolves around coffee, drinks, and random nights with Matt.

I kid you not there is not much on my phone. And for your entertainment I want to prove it to you.

This is about a weeks worth or so of photo’s from my phone.

Enjoy.

♥ ♥ ♥

Let’s begin with all the shameless selfies.

Sometimes when I have good hair days, I take coffee selfies.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2344

♥ ♥ ♥

And sometimes I like to document when I actually get out in the world.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2593

♥ ♥ ♥

When I don’t want to seem too vain, I make Matt selfie with me.

On our morning coffee dates.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2302

More coffee dates (they may or may not happen daily)

And some more drinks after work. (these I promise you do not happen daily)

We also have date night in selfies.

I recruit others when possible for selfies too.

A farewell sushi dinner with two of our close friends who are both moving.

Delicious food was first had.

Sushi selfie?

♥ ♥ ♥

And then real selfies happened after.

♥ ♥ ♥

My skills of getting everyone in the photo amaze me.

I then make my pets selfie too.

But really, when Rommy loves our new dining room table more than we do, he deserves a photo shoot.

♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥

This was the first day we had it. I guess he was giving his seal of approval.

He then decided he wanted to have dinner with us.

I know a lot of you are thinking the pets shouldn’t be on the furniture… but that just doesn’t happen in this house.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1904

♥ ♥ ♥

And when Ra looks this stoic… I just had to give him a selfie opportunity as well.

♥ ♥ ♥

Showing off his new collar…that he continuously takes off…somehow…

And here is how you know I am pretty involved in my challenge group. I have a lot of these on the photo reel.

♥ ♥ ♥

Push up challenges.

IMG_2213

♥ ♥ ♥

Thirsty Thursday water challenges. You gotta stay hydrated guys. Water is important, especially in the heat!

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2294 - Copy

♥ ♥ ♥

And a ton of accountability collages. I don’t just coach my challengers, I participate too!

There is still some food in my life. I won’t lie I’m so busy fancy meals don’t happen as often, but I still like to give shout outs to some of my favorite products that help make simple, quick, but delicious meals.

(bagels + almond butter = ah-mazing)

♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥

(side note: I just ran out of my Growing Naturals Vanilla Pea Protein which is a sad time. I literally use this stuff daily, if you need a vegan protein source – get this!)

So yea, that’s basically what my life is right now, and honestly I can’t really complain.

I’m busy, but I’m happy and content.

And I have a lot of these on my photo album too. And life is all about staying positive.

♥ ♥ ♥

Reasons To Be Happy

What story would your photo’s tell?

Do you take a lot of selfies?

camping adventures

I find the older we get, the more we forget to do the things we love and that bring us joy.

We “never have time”. But really, I think we can make time.

Camping was one of these things for me. I LOVE camping, yet I could never find the time to take a weekend to go. Now in reality, I do work every weekend, and it is hard for me to get a Saturday off, we are very short staffed at my clinic, so really getting a Saturday off is a lot to ask. But what I found out, it doesn’t hurt to ask, because you never know, your boss may be in a good mood and grant your request.

This was the case when I decided to request off a Saturday. It got approved! Matt and I immediately knew we wanted to go camping before it got too hot. So camping we went!

Matt was so excited that he took Friday off so he could go early to make sure we had a campsite. I felt kind of bad for him, it must have been pretty boring out at a campsite by yourself. Well he wasn’t completely alone. He seemed to have some entertaining neighbors to people watch during the day…he then had Jack Daniels to keep him company at night. 😉

Saturday morning I made my way up to meet him. Upon arriving we had a quick lunch and headed off to the lake to do some fishing. The view was beautiful. I always forget how much I miss the water and trees.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9057

♥ ♥ ♥

So while Matt did some (unsuccessful) fishing. I found myself a seat on a rock, read my book, and got in some sun.

♥ ♥ ♥

camping

♥ ♥ ♥

It was beautiful. I seriously forget how nice it is to just be outside in nature.

On our way back to the campsite we stopped by one of the view points and just sat some more and took in the view.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2062

♥ ♥ ♥

When we got back to the campsite, we started our dinner fire and made a very fancy dinner.

Nothing fancier than foil pack veggies and potatoes and hotdogs. Really. What is camping with out roasting some hot dogs over the fire? It’s not camping.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2060

♥ ♥ ♥

I know s’mores are a traditional campfire (side note: I totally asked Matt to get s’mores ingredients and he forgot…) But a campfire dessert tradition for his family are “pudgy pies”. They even have pudgy pie makers that are made to put over a campfire.  A pudgy pie is basically just buttered bread with pie filling in the middle, put in these cast iron holders and put in the camp fire coals until crispy. Think grilled cheese, but with pie filling.

(edit: in looking up a simple recipe link, I just now discovered ALL the possibilities of pudgy pie fillings. I didn’t even know there were so many different ways to make them!)

It was too dark to take a picture, I really wish I got a picture of the burnt to a char first batch Matt made, but trust me the second round turned out delicious.

The next morning Matt and I went for an early hike. We ended up seeing some deer and had a little squirrel tour guide for awhile (no joke a squirrel led the way down the trail and walked with us for a good half mile)

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2059

♥ ♥ ♥

More reading on the rim happened. We took our chairs this time and just hung out under some trees for shade.

The breeze was perfect and the view was beautiful.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_2061

♥ ♥ ♥

Then before we packed up the campsite, we headed down to the lake and rented some kayaks for an hour and just tooled around the lake. Again, it was just so nice to be out of the water and take in nature. We literally just floated and took in the scenery. We were both so at peace and happy we didn’t even need to talk.

Then it was back to the hot city for us. We really picked the perfect weekend to go because the temperatures in the valley that weekend hit a high of 117 degrees!!

Camping was bittersweet, it was so great to get away for a few days, but at the same time it made me want to do it more often. But I now know it doesn’t hurt to ask for a Saturday off, and who knows, maybe they’ll be granted more often.

♥ ♥ ♥

a promise to you

Hi Friends.

Yes I am still alive. I am so stretched thin with all the work I try to fit into the few hours I have outside of my day job, but a goal I am trying to enforce is staying true to my power hour goal. Matt and I try to set an hour to work, but I feel my hour is so unorganized that I really do not accomplish much. So I am going to try and set a schedule for myself, and part of that will be dedicating more time to my blog. I don’t want it to be just a random check in and photo dump, I want to be able to provide more useful content and have this blog have meaning again. So for those of you who have stuck with me, know I am going to make more of an effort to get you more beneficial information!

But that is in the future, for now let’s play catch up on some fun happenings. A lot has happened.

The new house is slowly but surely coming along. Matt and I are really loving the house and as I mentioned before we are so blessed to have amazing neighbors and have clicked well and fast with some of the younger couples.

One couple invited us out to Happy Hour at a place they frequented often. Well, we must have gotten the B crew, because service was sub par. It was actually quite horrible. But it almost made the night more fun because all we could do was make light of the situation.

At least we had good company.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1387

♥ ♥ ♥

And booze.

Speaking of booze. I feel like there has been a lot of it in my life lately.

No shame. I enjoy a good drink now and then and when I do have a drink, I have A drink.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1068

♥ ♥ ♥

On my days off, I’ll sometimes meet Matt for a drink. We found a really neat taco place that has great happy hour specials. And who doesn’t love a good margarita?

And sometimes when I have a stressful day at work, A drink with my husband makes everything better.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1032

♥ ♥ ♥

I mean wouldn’t that face put you in a better mood too?

Other random things that put me in good moods?

When my co-worker offers to buy me lunch.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1296

♥ ♥ ♥

It may just be grocery store sushi, but it still hits the spot.

What’s even better though is when your realtors invite you over for dinner and you show up to find this feast.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1051

♥ ♥ ♥

Do they know us or what? And seriously, there were four of us, and I think there were three pieces of sushi left over.

I’m a bottomless pit when it comes to sushi. I just can’t help it.

Again good times, with good company.

Other than that things have been pretty boring.

I did go to a wedding and made myself somewhat presentable.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_1143

♥ ♥ ♥

I always feel like I need to document these moments, because it’s rare I put real clothes on.

So I know this wasn’t the most excited post, and I do promise to be back soon with more interesting content, but for now this was just a post to let you know I am still alive and kicking and I really do hope to have more a presence again with the blog. So stick with me friends!

♥ ♥ ♥

What would YOU like to see more of on my blog? Health and fitness information? Recipes?

photo dump

Hello my loves!

Once again I apologize for my absence, but from my last post I think you can understand that I have a lot going on. But that really does not excuse my lack of keeping you all up to speed on what’s going on. I really do love this blog and sharing my life with you all, and now that things are starting to settle I promise I will make more frequent appearances. But since it has been so long, I thought a photo dump of a post might be in order. That way I won’t waste your time with a lot of words, but fill you in with pictures.

I know Easter was a while ago, but I really have to note how incredibly amazing our new neighbors are. All of them have been so welcoming and I think the second day we moved in we came home to this welcome basket. This was the first sign that they were amazingly welcoming, but since then they have proved it even more.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0264

♥ ♥ ♥

We know how incredibly lucky we are to have such kind neighbors, it’s seriously a rarity in this city. So the fact that our street is such a little tight knit community it icing to the cake on our amazing house!

So we had a lot of local spots that we knew we were going to miss when we moved. I still dream about these biscuits and gravy on Sunday’s…

♥ ♥ ♥

1

♥ ♥ ♥

We have been having a good time finding a replacement.

And I’ll tell you what, we’ve found some pretty fancy Bloody Mary and biscuits and gravy…

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0249

♥ ♥ ♥

This was at a place down town, a bit of a trek to get there, but bacon with a Bloody Mary?

Yes please.

They served their biscuits and gravy with potatoes… which was kind of odd, but not bad.

It was also made with a chorizo gravy, hence the color..

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0711

♥ ♥ ♥

Next Sunday we found a really cute coffee shop that was more in our neighborhood.

This place had such a cool vibe and had a lot to offer. But per tradition, we stuck with Bloody Mary’s and biscuits and gravy.

When we ordered the Bloody Mary from the bartender, she informed us their recipe had 18 ingredients and it would take her a few minutes to make it.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0662

♥ ♥ ♥

Totally worth the wait. This was one of the best Bloody Mary’s I have had. And I’m not even that big of a fan of Bloody Mary’s.

Matt again chose to get chorizo with his biscuits and gravy, again delicious. And their iced Americano’s where amazing as well.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0712

♥ ♥ ♥

I have a feeling we will be frequenting this place often.

Even though our old spot was a bit dingy, and maybe not the most fancy set up, I will say I miss their biscuits and gravy the most. And the atmosphere. It’s nice being a regular, so it was always nice to get such a warm welcome when we walked in. Not to say we can’t establish that else where, but for the moment.. the feeling is missed.

We have been exploring for more than just biscuits and gravy.

We found good pizza.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0371

♥ ♥ ♥

Good take home sushi and sashimi.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0436 - Copy

♥ ♥ ♥

Good tacos.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0641

♥ ♥ ♥

And even beautiful rose gardens where the owner hand picks a rose for you.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0671

♥ ♥ ♥

And promptly gives it to your husband to give to “his beautiful wife”.

Yes I think it’s safe to say we have been exploring our new neighborhood.

The house is slowly but surely coming along. Matt and I are both so excited to make it our own, but I can tell you…it already feels like home.

♥ ♥ ♥

Do you have any spots where you are a regular?

Do you like Bloody Mary’s? I prefer mimosa’s myself…

exciting news!

Where do I begin?

Ok, let’s be real, I have been waiting forever to spill this news and I officially can!

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0154

♥ ♥ ♥

Matt and I are officially homeowners!!

Yes friends, we bought our very first house! I know a lot of people say their first time home buying process is stressful and horrible, but other than one small snag (seller scratched the floor while moving out) our home buying experience was smooth and easy.

I would like to thank our amazing realtors for being a huge part in that. They were such a pleasure to work with.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0155

♥ ♥ ♥

I also think good karma finally came back to Matt and I. I always say being a good person, even if you get sh*t on in the process, is always worth it and the right thing to do. And I truly feel that all the times Matt and I got taken for granted and all we’ve done for others, finally came back to us. And I couldn’t be more thankful for that.

SOOO excited to get moved in and make the house our own. I have about 93849234 projects I already want to start. Someone needs to remind me that these things take time and I need to do one project at a time. I have a feeling I may bite off more than I can chew. But I’m just so excited!

So needless to say we have been insanely busy. Packing, signing documents, loans, walk throughs. But alas, we still find time to do some normal fun things!

Since we’re moving out of our current neighborhood we have really been taking advantage of some of our local spots that we love.

I am REALLY going to miss our Sunday morning breakfast tradition at Buzz Berry. We go here every Sunday as they have the best biscuits and gravy. And we’ve really gotten to know and love the staff. They are so good to us, so much that one day when they forgot to make said biscuits and gravy, we got a complimentary coffee cake to tide us over while we waited.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0099

♥ ♥ ♥

Oh yea, their bloody mary’s are pretty tasty too! Yup, this place serves booze too.

Another tradition I am going to miss is on my day’s off Matt and I go to a local coffee shop Comoncy that is right by Matt’s work. Again we have gotten to know the staff and always have a great morning together.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0037

♥ ♥ ♥

But the one thing I think I will miss the most… my favorite sushi restaurant. Not only do they make the best sushi I have found, but yet again, we have gotten to know the sushi chef’s and are always treated so well. When it comes to dining out the experience is just as important as the food. Luckily we get the best of both.

♥ ♥ ♥

 IMG_00211

♥ ♥ ♥

His and her rolls.

But even though we are leaving some pretty amazing places behind, we have been exploring our new neighborhood which has some pretty neat places that soon may be our new regular go to spots.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0086

♥ ♥ ♥

We have been having a lot of fun out in the world exploring, but there has actually been some delicious-ness going on at home too.

I can’t say I’ve been cooking gourmet meals by any means, but I did whip up some amazing chicken tacos one night.

I definitely took a short cut and used rotisserie chicken and just added a can of Rotel tomatoes and let it simmer and marinate. Put in purple corn tortillas and topped with allll the avocado.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0055

♥ ♥ ♥

And since we are trying to save some money, being new home owners and all, I attempted to make my own veggies rolls at home instead of stopping by Whole Foods.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9994

♥ ♥ ♥

Mine were a bit messier, and I swear what makes these amazing is the wasabi-mayo sauce that Whole Foods gives with it (thankfully when I go I grab extra’s so I had some at home) so they were a pretty good substitute.

However, the nights Matt plays dodgeball and I know I am having dinner alone…sometimes I can’t help but pick up sashimi on my way home from work.

AJ’s Fine Food salmon sashimi is seriously the best I have ever had. And I am picky when it comes to my salmon.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_0112

♥ ♥ ♥

It’s like buttah.

Well loves, I would love to stay and chat, but I have an apartment to pack up!!

Moving is so bittersweet. I hate packing, but am so excited to get into the new house and make it my own. But seriously the whole process..packing/unpacking, I could do without.

♥ ♥ ♥

Do you have any exciting news?
If you own a house, how was your home buying experience?

mermaids, mimosa’s & puppies

Hi loves, it’s time for that check in.

Sometimes when you get in that normal rut, you think nothing is really going on, but in looking back SO much has gone on. Does anyone else feel that way? Our lives are OUR lives, so sometimes they don’t seem extra special, but it’s still fun to share those moments with others. Keeps up connected!

Let’s start with one of the more fun updates.

I’m officially a mermaid!

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9743

♥ ♥ ♥

My hair dresser talked me into getting aqua in my hair… I’m not quite sure yet how I feel about it, I’m still adjusting. I like it, but just don’t know if green/blue is my color. I love the purple and have had that before, but we’ll see if this whole aqua thing grows on me.

As per usual Matt and I have been keeping busy, but since we work so much on our side businesses we really try to get out in the world and work on the go. We actually both seem to get a lot more done when we are out working because surprisingly enough, there are less distractions.

We found this cool little place that had an outside bar that we ordered a few drinks and lunch.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9708

♥ ♥ ♥

Nothing like a grapefruit mimosa, work and palm tree reflections. This is the time of the year I love living in Arizona. It’s already in the 70’s and beautiful here.

Matt ordered a hamburger topped with roasted red pepper and some sort of aoili. I don’t eat a lot of red meat and am actually very picky when it comes to my hamburgers, but I stole multiple bites of this. I couldn’t stop, the flavor combination was on point.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9845

♥ ♥ ♥

And those fries…

On my days off Matt and I have a tradition of getting coffee and breakfast, he doesn’t have a lot of extra time in the morning, so I appreciate he takes the time to spend with me.

However. Men. Too busy eating to take a selfie with me.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9703

♥ ♥ ♥

I ended up walking to work for the later part of my afternoon and before I knew it Matt was texting me that he was done with work. Well… since I was out.. I had him meet me for a drink before we went home to have dinner.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9846

♥ ♥ ♥

And a margarita always sounds good.

And what would an update from me be without a little of this.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9672

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9826

♥ ♥ ♥

Because puppies.

Well loves I hope you all are doing just wonderful. Until the next check in.

Tell me one thing you’ve been loving lately?

How do you spend your days off?

drinks, drinks and wild foods

Hello friends!

I hope everyone’s week is going fabulous.

Mine has been busy busy busy.

But you know I love to check in to let you know what I have been up too and also to check in with all you lovlies.

So tell me, how have all of you been? Any exciting news?

We’ve been running around like chickens with our heads cut off, both of us busy with our side business’s and others fun life stuff, but somehow we always find time to have a little fun.

We recently checked out a new to us Thai restaurant that had high recommendations.

Red Thai is located in a little strip mall and from the outside may not look like anything special, but it was really neat inside.  Think NY Thai restaurant, more modern. They had a really nice bar set up that lined the whole inside of the restaurant and also had anime playing on big screen TVs. There was also a DJ mixing live music, so that was also a fun twist.  Overall it just had a really cool vibe and atmosphere.

Matt and I were meeting some company so while we waited we ordered a drink.

♥ ♥ ♥

2

♥ ♥ ♥

I ordered the Pinku No Hana, which seriously tasted of flowers. It was made with sake, jasmine infused vodka, and ruby red grapefruit juice. It was such a refreshing drink.

When it came time to order, I just had no idea what I wanted. It was one of those everything sounded good moments. However, right before I ordered I had seen this salad be served to another table, asked the waiter what it was, and decided to order it. It was a papaya mint salad with fried tofu and topped with crushed peanuts.

♥ ♥ ♥

3

♥ ♥ ♥

Now. This was a good salad, however, when it comes to Thai food, I should have went with my gut and ordered a meat and rice dish like I typically do. The salad just left something to be desired. However, Matt ordered the yellow curry which was PHENOMENAL and he so graciously let me eat some of his. It just means we’ll have to go back so I can try something else. Darn.

The next day Matt and I had some errands to run and since it was a beautiful day out we decided to stop by True Foods to have a cocktail.

I typically order the cucumber margarita, but just wasn’t feeling it that day, so I asked the bartender to just make me his favorite cocktail.

He chose the Thai Basil Martini.

Little did he know what I just had the previous night.

But to his credit, this martini was so delicious! Again, so fresh. I definitely think this will be my new go to drink there. Matt ordered the Cherry Bourbon Sour which was very tasty as well.

Cheers!

Other random happenings?

Sometimes it’s the random things that make me giggle.

Like eating sushi in my car when I’m out getting lunch because I am just too hungry to wait until I got back to the clinic.

Oh! And before I go, I just have to share with you guys.

Have you heard of Wild Foods?

They offer a variety of products, but their main focus is on teas and coffees.

They offer around 19 flavors of tea, which is just amazing! I mean, how could you choose?

Well a really cool thing is you can build your own subscription box, so you can pick and choose what flavors you want. Pretty cool huh?

If you know me I am pretty obsessed with coffee so I knew I wanted to try some of their coffee and they also offer a cold brew, which I love!

♥ ♥ ♥

1

♥ ♥ ♥

Not sure how to brew tea? Coffee? Cold Brew? They got you covered with their How To page with detailed guides and instructions on how to brew your drink of choice.

It also provides great information on using whey protein, healthy fats, uses for coconut oil.

As good as the coffee smelled and looked, what stole my heart right from the start…

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9488

♥ ♥ ♥

Oh.My.Gosh. Were these things delicious! It took a lot not to devour the whole bag. If you have trouble deciding what you want to try. These are a must!

So make sure you go check out their site, if you are a coffee or tea lover you will not be disappointed!

That’s it for me! Hopefully I will have more news for you soon! But until then have a wonderful week!

♥ ♥ ♥

What would you choose if you made a subscription box from Wild Foods?

Which do you prefer Coffee or Tea?

new year update

Hi loves.

I still exist.

I think the holiday’s everyone gets crazy busy, so I know there are you that feel me on that one, but so much more has been going on around here.

I have had a crazy of a New Year already, a lot of change, a lot of change to come.

Possible job changes, not changing jobs, then changing jobs again?
Yea, it makes just about as much sense to me too. But needless to say, I was contemplating leaving my current clinic for another…then decided to give mine another chance. And I guess I can just leave it at that. It was stressful to say the least.

Thankfully on one of my most stressful days, I had a little stress relief.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9134

♥ ♥ ♥

In the form of my love, food, and drinks.

It was so nice just to de-stress a little with the one person who actually matters. Because despite all the petty drama. Certain people matter. And certain people don’t.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9135

♥ ♥ ♥

This whole process has really helped me realize I need to stay positive and not let others get to me and run my life. I can’t help it though, I’m a sensitive gal!

Another stress in my life however has been the process of house hunting. Goodness, I did not realize how emotionally draining this process was.

Matt and I joked that buying a house was going to turn us into alcoholics.

After house shopping.

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9142

After finding a house we really liked, considering putting an offer in, and checking out the surrounding area.

That night we ironically had a dinner date with a friend, so it all kind of worked out. At the end of the day Matt and I really need some food and friend time.

This was exactly what I needed.

Well friends, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what’s been going on, but I wanted to check in with you all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their New Year and all is going well.

OH! One more thing before I leave. I am just so excited that I have to share. I recently started my new Hammer & Chisel program and at first, I’m not going to lie, I was seeing so many people getting all these results and I just felt like I wasn’t see the same in me. But now that I am at the start of my third week, I finally am seeing some results I am so psyched about!

♥ ♥ ♥

IMG_9196

♥ ♥ ♥

Honestly I am seeing the most results in my arms, but my lower body is finally starting to catch up!

Can’t wait to see how I progress more!

Well loves. Have a wonderful week.

Has anything exciting happened in the beginning of your New Year?
