Ahnu Hiking Boots + WIAW

The only reason I like winter is the fact that I get to wear boots. And snow, but we don't get much of that in Georgia. But, it does get cold!  When I wanted to get outdoors during our first cold snap, I was really happy to have my Sugar Bowl boots from Ahnu!  Unbelievably, my feet stayed toasty - that never happens.  In fact, I have Raynaud's Disease; usually my toes and fingers are so cold they turn white and go numb!  While my fingers did turn white, my feet were actually warm! I was also pleased with the look.  Black and blue are my favorite colors.  The laces in the front are stylin', but not at the expense of function.  These boots have side zips so you don't need to spend 20 minutes tugging them on and readjusting them.  I'll be taking these to Lake … [Read More...]

Lorna Jane outfit

Sunday Funday with Lorna Jane

Bro day is my favorite. Most of the time. It becomes my least favorite when the reps get high.  Only Jesse could make biceps suck... high reps are not my friend. Let's back up to the fact that I'm wearing color.  Lorna Jane sent over these amazing clothes for me to check out and - … [Read More...]

When the sender of the flowers came to visit, I had to make mac 'n cheese by request.  Of course,  I couldn't just make a normal recipe.  It had a strange twist or two, but I assure you it was good! Apparently I'm … [Read More...]

All About That WIAW

Who loves leg day? Not. Me. Leg day is my least favorite.  It's why I always do it with my trainer.  He pushes me harder than I would push myself, and it's like a mini-therapy session.  My least favorite thing in the WORLD are Hack Squats.  I's rather do 25 reps of something (I also hate … [Read More...]

Red Velvet Protein Waffles Recipe

Red Velvet Protein Waffles [Recipe]

My favorite cakes include: chocolate, carrot, red velvet, and banana-peanut butter-bacon.  In that order. … [Read More...]
