Dude, really. I’m not turning my oven on. You get nothing but frozen treats. Well, okay, maybe later this week you get something from the oven, but I made it weeks ago, so I have an excuse. As for today, I’m feeding the girl that’s dripping sweat just from walking from the car to the store (yup, that’s me I’m talking about here). I know, it’s a real attractive look for me.

Popsicles. They’re all the rage. Really, anything you put on a stick [Read more...]

Maybe you haven’t noticed, but holidays are not a big deal here on the blog. Yes, I know I’m a food blogger. Yes, I know that Pinterest thrives off of all things holiday-themed. With Memorial Day just a month ago and Independence Day next week, I’m sure you’ve seen all the red, white, and blue. Firecracker popsicles. Star-shaped Watermelon skewers. American Flag cakes. Everyone’s prepared for their celebrations (which obviously happened weeks, or months, ago if they’re already on Pinterest). Now before you go on claiming my lack of patriotism, I’m going to tell you, that is not the reason why I have zero RWB or flag recipes here on the site.

To be honest, I’m just not [Read more...]

I am a firm believer that if you can make something from scratch as opposed to buying the packaged equivalent from the store, you should probably just do it as often as possible. There are a ton of unnecessary added ingredients, chemicals, and preservatives that are added to packaged foods, and although I can’t avoid them all the time, I do my best to do what I can.

Believe me when I say that I understand being a busy mom. [Read more...]

My seven-year-old son is pretty darn predictable. I can foresee just about every snack he’ll ask for, every bottle of colorful sprinkles he’ll spill all over the floor (yup, that happened just before this photo shoot), and every whine of boredom that comes out of his mouth this summer. I know that from the moment the thermometer rises above 70 degrees, he will start asking for a popsicle every afternoon.

My kiddo hates the heat. [Read more...]

I’ve now been a military wife for about 6 months now. I don’t love it. It’s definitely not at all what I expected it to be. For one, it’s about a million times harder to be away from my spouse for this long than I thought it would be. Secondly, after watching Army Wives, I was hoping for a lot more camaraderie, but really I know only a handful of military wives and totally don’t feel in the loop. TV Lies.

Being a new military wife, I’ve [Read more...]

Finding Support for your Healthy Lifestyle

Finding Support for your Healthy Lifestyle. Ever wonder where you can find like-minded people who can help support you in living a healthy life? Here are some great ideas! www.happyfoodhealthylife.com

Yesterday I talked a bit about my social anxiety (or we could really just call is social awkwardness). How the majority of my friends are online. How it’s always been that way since my early teens. How I really have no clue how to meet people. And then even if I meet people, I really have no clue how to convert said people from an acquaintance to an actual friend. By 30 years old, you’d think I’d actually get it by now. I mean, even my friends online are mostly acquaintances. There are very few people who I’ve really been able to make a connection with and am able to call them my besties.

So as I’m thinking about this weirdness about myself, [Read more...]

Let’s play pretend. I’m going to pretend that I am a super social person. I don’t have social anxiety. I don’t have problems following through with social plans. I have get-togethers in my home where I grill, serve wine and beer, and everyone’s laughing and having a good time. We’ll pretend I have more than just a lot of acquaintances who have never been to my house. Saturday nights would always be [Read more...]
