My attitude on maturity is that until my father acts his age, I am safe to be as bubbly, giggly, and young as I want.

You see my father has numerous Vegas trips with his fraternity brothers each year, he makes up ridiculous jokes and laughs at them himself, and he loves to embarrass his daughters. When he folds laundry he puts underwear on his head and acts like its normal. He supremely enjoys coloring while out to dinner at restaurants.

See? I have no responsibility to act mature. Therefore I still enjoy things like playing at the playground.

I like dressing up for Halloween.

I love Disneyland and Disney World.

I still hug all the characters just like when I was five.

One of my favorite “I’m having a bad day” meals is macaroni and cheese with corn mixed in and then chicken nuggets. Very kindergarten 🙂

When people say “Yea she acts like she’s 24”.. I say “Good, that’s relatively good for today. Yesterday I was in my teens.” What better way than to live your life for the age you’re at. I don’t have to “look forward” to growing up or waiting for when I can do things. I just get to enjoy each day, learn as I go, and smile and laugh through the whole thing.



I find that the things I think about most are food, working out, or when I get to see my husband next. Don’t tell him but I really think that food takes up the majority of my thoughts. Even sitting here now my mouth is watering because ten minutes ago I looked at some incredible make-at-home pretzels (Drool Worthy Pretzels), and well I can’t stop fantasizing about them. Although I would add cinnamon sugar to mine, because, well, that sounds even more delicious. I honestly could look up recipes for most of the day but then I’m left with a pit in my stomach and the cravings of a pregnant woman. What can I say I’m a domestic foodie!

My overall goal here will be to share my workouts, my favorite recipes, and some everyday life occurrences. I have to admit that I’m not a Fairy Godmother cook. Meaning I don’t have a magic wand and I’m much better at making other people’s recipes than my own. I am a certified spin instructor and an avid runner. I’ll tell you that I am more of a 5k runner than anything else. I’ll occasionally check out the odd half marathon, and throw in some 10ks but honestly my knees and mental capability to put in serious mileage is not as strong as I’d like to admit. Hopefully this blog will offer some realistic recipes, workouts and maybe make you laugh once in a while. Hopefully I’ll be a blogger friend that you can relate to and find somethings you can do in your daily life too!
