Happy Monday: A Weekend Recap

Hi Lovelies!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Mine was filled with some DIY fun at home, birthday partying it up with a friend, and a very scenic hike through the Milton Reimer’s Ranch Park in Dripping Springs. It was an absolutely beautiful weekend over 75 and sunny the whole time….<sigh> Well, Sunday was the big hiking day, and we accidentally found this awesome park on the Pedernales river right next to Hamilton Pool State Park. We were going to go to Hamilton Pool, but they wouldn’t let Miss. Sophie in and we had to bring her because the owners of our house are selling and there was an open house…blah! I have to say though, it was JUST as awesome and we had a blast with our friends just hiking around and laying in the sun:) Wes took some fabulous pictures too, check ’em out!

Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge: Week 3 Recap

Hi Lovelies!

Well, the end of the Move, nourish, believe challenge has come. It makes me sad not only because it was fun, but because that also means February is almost over and I feel like it just began! Ahhh, time goes by WAY too quickly! Well, here is my recap of the challenges for this week!

Monday: Spoil Yourself

Face Mask


I used my fun new clay mask that I got in my Influenster voxbox last week to pamper myself a little bit. It was really nice. Tingled a little bit, but I’m pretty sure it’s meant to do that:) I put it on, turned on some relaxing music, and pretended I was at a spa for about 10 minutes….how relaxing!

Tuesday: Meditation



Today was a day to meditate. Sometimes I feel like I have no time to do anything, so it was really nice to just shut everything out for a few minutes today and focus on me.

Wednesday: Show Us Your Happy Place!

Lake St. Helen, MI


This is my favorite place in the whole world. I grew up coming to this lake every summer and even got engaged here. This always has been and always will be my happy place:)

Thursday: Thankful Thursday

Family Portrait

The thing I am most thankful for is my family. I didn’t have a picture of all of them that would fit on Intsagram, so I just used this one of the littlest members of my family! Aren’t they the cutest?

Friday: Share The Love

Engagement Picture

My #1 supporter and motivator has ALWAYS been Wes. My husband is always supportive of me no matter what new adventure I choose to go on.

Well, that was my week! Hope everyone else had as much fun as I did. Don’t forget to stop by Fit Approach and Lorna Jane and thank them for this awesome challenge!

Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge: Week 2

Hi Lovelies!

Week 2 of the move, nourish, believe challenge with Lorna Jane and Fit Approach has come to an end. This week was all about nourishing our bodies and getting some great inspiration from each other in terms of food. This week was much harder for me than last week, because not only did I try and complete the challenge, I tried really hard to eat well the rest of the time as well. Let’s say that it all worked out minus Thursday night when we went to BJ’s and got pizza. Oops. Oh well, you mess up you move on, am I right? So, here is my recap of the challenges for the week! To follow along next week head on over to Instagram or Twitter and follow me:)

Monday: Go Meatless!

Today’s challenge was to go meatless. It actually wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I had fruit for breakfast, a salad with no meat for lunch, and pasta without meat for dinner. I love my steak way too much to be an actual vegetarian, but I was fine doing it for the one day.


Tuesday: Take Your Lunch To Work

I go home for my lunch most days so that I can take Sophie out for a little walk, so I didn’t take my lunch to work per say. I did, however, make my lunch instead of grabbing something on the way home. Yummy soup!

Newlywed cookbook

Wednesday: Write it down

I logged my meals today and realized that I do a lot more snacking than I probably should. Thankfully, the snacks aren’t awful, but I really should be eating more fruits and veggies for snacks. I did have a wonderfully fruity breakfast though!

Yummy fruit

Thursday: Smoothie Day

I loved Thursday. Smoothies are my favorite, especially strawberry banana ones! Being Valentine’s week, I had to use one of my red and white paper straws! <3

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Friday: Go Raw!

Today was brutal, and if we are going to be honest I may have cheated just a tiny bit. <oops> We cater lunch every Friday at work and I totally forgot about the raw thing when I ordered my salad and it had cooked corn. My bad. I couldn’t put it to waste though!

Mason jar salad

There you have it! I have to say the raw and meatless days were extra tough for me. I know I wouldn’t be able to commit to these lifestyles, but they are fun to try for a day! Haha!

Join me next weekend for my recap of week 3, this week is all about taking care of and pampering yourself! Yay!

Sweat Pink And A Challenge

Hi Lovelies!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I sat around and did nothing most of the weekend, just like planned (See the picture below, we didn’t move from this spot all day Saturday lol)! Traveling the past two weekends in a row really wore me out and I needed a little bit of time to just rest and recoup from it all. I did run my 4.5 mile on Sunday for my half marathon training though, so it wasn’t a complete lazy weekend. :)Cavalier King Charles

I have a few things to share with you all today! First of all, I was accepted by Fit Approach to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador. Yay! The Sweat Pink Ambassador’s are a group of women who want to inspire others to be healthy and happy. I joined because I want to inspire other women. I have worked out for years, but just recently realized that I am in love with running. I love the way it makes me feel. It makes me feel strong, it makes me feel like I have the power to do anything. I used to work out to get skinny. I used to work out because I wanted to look like Giselle. Now, I work out for me. I work out because of the way it makes me feel, not the way it makes me look. I want to help other women make the realization that strong is beautiful. I want to help women realize how amazing they can feel if they work out for the right reasons. I am learning right along with other women, but I really think that I can be a good inspiration to so many people. So, with that being said I am so honored to have been picked as a Sweat Pink Ambassador! (Click here if you would like to apply)

Now, the second thing I wanted to talk about is the Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge. It’s being put together by Fit Approach and Lorna Jane and I want all of you to join me! It will be an awesome way to make sure that your new years resolutions don’t go out the window in February.

Running Pink

Hi Lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I was in Dallas visiting the parents for my Momma’s birthday. We had a really great dinner at Buca Di Beppo and took a couple of hikes with the puppies:) If you take away the fact that my eyes swelled up and I couldn’t breathe due to allergies, it was a great weekend! Lol! I am so grateful my appointment with the allergist is tomorrow…it’s time to take some meds!

On to today’s post! This is a fashion blog. Fashion is what I love and it always will be, but given my new found love for running I wanted to incorporate it into the blog a little bit:) Not every day, not even every week, but when I feel like talking about it I’m going to! My blog, my rules, right? So, as most of you know, I am running a half marathon with my best friend in April and we are ROCKIN’ it! We’re training hard and eating well and it’s really paying off! I have to say, one thing I have noticed is that having awesome new gear always makes me want to train even harder. If you were here last week, you saw some of my awesome new work out gear, and a lot of you have seen the sparkle tank too….but you know me, the shopaholic, I am always looking for new “motivation”. Yeah, pretty sure I found it. are these not the cutest sports bras ever? And those headbands! Ahhh! I need it all. Don’t be surprised if you see any of this stuff popping up in my Instagram feed soon…I do have a gift card to VS after all:)

What motivates you to train mean?
