Happy Hump Day!
My humps are late today.
In honor of National Hemp Lobby Day (yes, that’s a thing), I’m posting a sustainably-themed WIAW. What’s better than talking about sustenance while wearing sustainable clothing?
Can you believe the holidays are already upon us?
I say this every year, I know.
I love gift giving. Spending time finding the “perfect” gift for friends and family is fun for me; however, I know it can be stressful. Some people seem to have everything!
As such, I’ve been keeping a list of some of the more unique gift ideas I’ve had lately. Ya know, in case you guys need some help too!
I can be forgetful.
Yes, it does get worse as you age.
At 33, I’ve forgotten a lot of things: my keys, where I parked, conference calls… once Vegas and I BOTH forgot to turn in a rental car. For a week.
Most recently I forgot deodorant. This is not the first time I’ve forgotten it, but it’s particularly embarrassing when you’re headed to the gym where you quite obviously need it. This is where choosing the right deodorant for you (and your degree of forgetfulness) plays a role.
I can’t stay healthy.
Don’t ever age past 30.
We were in at the softball world series last week in Kansas City playing with our old Atlanta team. First Vegas went down with a hamstring. Then – because we do everything together – I did mine. 2 weeks before we go to Italy. I swear these things never happened when I was in my 20s! Sigh.
In other news, we had delicious BBQ that I ate so quickly I forgot to take pictures of. There were also breakfasts of Krispy Kreme and Fireball. #sorryimnotsorry
Why does Friday seems SO far away on a short week?
Especially when you have Friday off too.
Vegas and I are camping all weekend in the RV. It’s the annual OTL tournament in San Diego, so we’ll be with hundreds of our closest friends on an island playing ball. It’s an insane tradition here, and we’re happy to adopt it!
As such, I have nothing creative for you to make today. However, I did compile another random list of things that are awesome this week.
This article, 11 Wines to Drink While Crying to Adele’s New Album, is brilliant. The tasting notes, the gifs… I’m a little ashamed I didn’t think of this first.
Have you guys been on Instagram lately?
That’s a rhetorical question.
Last week my feed was filled with peeks inside my trip to the NOW Foods headquarters in a Chicago suburb. I was one of 7 lucky FitFluential bloggers that spend 2 days immersed in NOW, getting an insider look at the company and their passion for providing high-quality, affordable products.
But first, schwag:
At the end of this post, there is an opportunity for YOU to win ALL of these goodies too. It’s filled with supplements, gluten free-pasta, sugar-free sweetener, and even an oil diffuser!…
I’m a passionate of user of very few things.
Packing up to move makes you realize what you REALLY need.
So yeah… we’re moving again. As much as I loved the cross-country Route 66 drive, I’m relieved that this time we’re just going down the street. As I’m – once again – sifting through stuff, deciding what we need and what is just clutter, I realize there are a few things I’ve discovered in our first year here that I truly love. Funny enough… it’s not clothes or shoes or other “stuff.” (I’ve actually donated or tossed half my clothing since leaving Atlanta. Hooray half-assed minimalism!)
The things I’m sharing today are can’t-live-without items I’ve re-ordered more than once, and a few things that have stayed with me for at least 4 years.

Those of you who’ve been following along know that I got married in January. Vegas and I are not exactly traditional in more ways than one. First of all, we didn’t even live in the same city when we got married. Being all the way across the country from your spouse is excruciating!
All of that to say that when we were able to live together it was fantastic… and terrifying. How do you combine 2 houses of stuff into one SoCal flat?! 10 months later we are still trying to find space for everything.
When I caught wind of Ziploc® Space Bags®, I was thrilled. Their vacuum seal bags give you 3 times the storage compared to uncompressed storage volume.
There are 2 and a 1/2 weeks until Christmas.
Did anyone else just gasp?
It’s well past time to start thinking about gifts. For my Jewish friends, I hope you’re done because your 8 crazy Hanukah nights started yesterday!
If you’re like me, you’re trying to find the perfect gifts for the special people in your life. It’s tough! If your friends and family members are fans of fitness and/or food, I’ve got some awesome ideas for you!
