Okay I have to share my latest obsession with y’all: Apple Cider Vinegar based (ACV) elixirs and blends. I’ve used ACV for a long time in my vegan cooking, especially for recipes such as raw salad dressings and sauces. And I’d heard of people drinking it straight, but had never tried that or any kind of ACV elixir or… Continue reading My Latest Obsession: Apple Cider Vinegar Elixirs
I’m so excited! I just made my first YouTube video for y’all. I’ve been promising this since my first 50 mile ultra earlier this year (or maybe even before??) and I finally got a new camera lens that makes filming myself much easier! Just please excuse my total lack of professionalism and quality as I’m… Continue reading Foam Rolling for Runners
I recently went to Arizona to have my eyebrows microbladed by Amber at Sage Organic Skincare (read more about that super fun trip here). In case you don’t know what this is, it’s best described as a temporary tattoo made with a microblade. I know it’s extreme that I traveled from Texas to Arizona to… Continue reading My First Brow Microblading!
Wow! What a fabulous trip! I was able to successfully navigate another adventure on only juice (read part 1 about my Juice Feast here; trip was on days 63 & 64). I must say, it sure is an amazing feeling to return from vacation feeling completely refreshed, rejuvenated, and not all bloated from eating and… Continue reading Arizona: Acupuncture, Float Therapy & More!
“It’s never about deprivation, it’s about becoming who we were meant to be all along.” I can’t remember where I saw this quote, but I absolutely love it. For me, instead of focusing on what I am missing out on when I make healthy changes and improvements to my life, I’ve had the most success… Continue reading Part I: My 1st Juice Feast
To say that eating healthy in a world where food manufacturers routinely put non-food ingredients such as wood filler in parmesan cheese is a gross understatement (go ahead, Google it). I mean, am I the only one who thinks that seeing “pork” listed as an ingredient on my kids’ fruit snacks is super disturbing?! Never mind the… Continue reading Scott’s Latest Obsession
Landri and her little bestie just had their 5th annual Best Friends photo sesh in the Texas wild flowers. Usually, we go to the same spot of bluebonnets, but per my Lehnhoff sibling post, there was a serious lack of flowers this year, and between schedules and weather, the beautiful yellow flowers in my backyard were… Continue reading B-Fri’s in the Flowers!
This year the Bluebonnets weren’t all that great as compared to other years; at least not in our usual spot, which was disappointing. Add in a hectic schedule, too much sunshine on picture day, and three un-cooperative small children, it’s surprising that I’m actually okay with the photos I was able to snag despite all of the hurdles. I guess… Continue reading 2017 Sibling Bluebonnets
You might recall that we went on an awesome staycation and glamped at The Texas Bell last spring. Leslie and her husband Jess who own The Bell were incredible hosts and we remained Facebook friends ever since! A few weeks ago I saw some beautiful indigo Shibori (tie dye) that Leslie did and she invited me over… Continue reading Shibori Surprise!
This past Tuesday, March 21, 2017, I lost my last living grandparent, my maternal grandfather, William J. Hetzler, age 92. He was also my kids’ last living great grandparent. It was expected, and while we are glad that he is no longer suffering, it has been tough. It was difficult every time that I lost a grandparent,… Continue reading Losing the Last One
