what i'm lovin' wednesday

1. Super heroes The pups and I dressed up as a "wonderous" clan of super heroes. We just need dad to come home!
2. Candy I loaded up on bags of candy for passing out to the kids in the neighborhood, but will resist the urge to have some for myself. 3. Football Yep, can you believe I said it…

spooky decorations

I love Halloween. It's a time to pass out candy, watch scary movies, and cozy up on the couch. Another part that I like about the spooky holiday are all the decorations. People really get into the spirit! I found some great inspiration...





taco soup

Taco soup? My goodness, does Tiffany from The Gracious Pantry know me too well. She really doesn't know me at all, but you get the idea. Even better about this soup is that it's a clean eat. My favorite. Funny thing is, there isn't even a tortilla in it. Fine with me.

free people wish list

It's hard not to have a constant wish list at Free People, especially when Fall comes. They have the best pieces in. Sigh. I wish I still had my discount there. I would swoop everything up in a heartbeat, but it's better to save money on more practical things...like Christmas shopping. Alw…

1. Skinny lattes After my hour-long morning workouts, nothing beats a delicious, hot coffee that's guilt-free. The red lip just gives it a little attitude. 2. Arm candy I recently purchased the watch I've been pining for quite sometime. I love stacking goodies on my wrists. 3. Kale salad My m…

northern wind

I hadn't painted in awhile, and I was itching to get a new piece of art going, especially one that means so much to Boyfriend and me. I embarked on the painting adventure yesterday. Sought out a large canvas at Michael's (on sale) and planned my little masterpiece in my mind.

baked kale and sausage ziti

While Mexican food is my number one weakness, a close second is Italian food. Pasta, cheese, sauces. What's not to love? So when I found a healthier version of baked ziti on Clean Eating Mag, I was ready to indulge in a healthy way.

Here is the recipe...

lululemon wish list

I'm on day thirty-two of straight gym days. I'm starting to realize I might need more gym clothes with the gym rat I have become. What better place to look than lululemon? So glad there is one just fifteen minutes away from my house. Better think of a wish list...

1. New hair Ombre was fun, but it was time to get all the red out. They aren't joking when they say it's the toughest color to budge. Back to a dark blonde. 2. Ruby Woo This matte lipstick from MAC is to die for. 3. Memory books I've spent a lot of my time making a memory book for Boyfrie…
