The Final Push

And, we are back! We had an amazing 10 days in the mountains with family. We hiked (as much as I could get my husband to), ate a lot of good food, picked bunches of berries, and spent some time relaxing. We came home a little sore, refreshed, and full of adventure. One of my…

Road Tripping With a Toddler

And we are off again….. Headed back up to the Mountains for one last summer trip before the farm gets too crazy again. This time my husband gets to come! I can’t wait to get my feet on the mountains and breath in the fresh air. I am now 6 months pregnant but I am…

My Growing Garden

‘If you look at it the right way, you can see that the entire world is a garden’ Growing a garden is something I have done ever since my beginning. My Mother and Grandmother always had gardens. My Great-grandfather had a huge garden and all my Grandmas neighbors did as well. It was just something…

Can I feed my 2 month old Ice Cream?!

I recently joined a ‘stay at home mom’ group on Facebook and wow have my eyes been opened! I guess I thought the rest of the world of moms had the same schedule, opinions, and household set up as me. I also like to believe that children are all playing outside, growing gardens, eating dirt,…

How to find a healthy meal (almost) anywhere

Eating out 101. How to eat healthy. How to avoid the temptation. How to feel like you splurged without actually ingesting multiple fried foods. My husband and I do not eat out often but when we do I like to try and keep my meals and our daughters fairly healthy. Now don’t get me wrong,…

Tasty July 4th Treats

Part of being a farm wife is helping out whenever the need arises. The past three weeks we have been harvesting wheat and my job is to deliver meals to the field twice a day. All meals must be able to be eaten while driving a combine/semi/tractor.We just finished up on Saturday and needless to…

Not So Glowing Pregnancy

Alright Y’all, pregnancy cravings are a real bitch. My first pregnancy was a walk in the park. I hardly ever craved anything. I never got sick. I had lots of energy. I was all a go, all 9 months. This one is like growing a t-rex. I am still getting sick (but only when I…

SAHM Work…I need Ideas!

We are back in the flatland and back to life as usual. Anxiously awaiting our next visit up north (in July). My clients resume tonight and I cannot wait to get back into the gym! I am ready to a good weight lifting workout. I always feel so motivated after leaving the gym. It helps…

My Dirty Laundry

I am really good at talking about what I am good at. My last post, Let Me Intimidate You, focused on child nutrition. Something I am very passionate about. I can go on for hours talking about kids’ nutrition. It is easy for me. I am good at nutrition and it is a good habit….

Let Me Intimidate You

I take a lot of crap over feeding my child good food. I get laughed at, questioned (constantly), and always told I am depriving my child. Depriving her of treats, sweets, cereals, etc. I mean come one, she is just a kid, let her have some fun! Right? Can we please just stop this already!…

Motivated in May

It is 4:40 a.m. and my alarm is ringing. Starting off a new day for me. The last thing I want to do is get out of bed but I do it. I have to be at the gym soon to train a client then back home before baby wakes. Every single time when I…

Nourishing A Toddler

Feeding a toddler is by far one of the hardest parts of raising them. Each meal time ends in a big mess. Half the food on the floor, Some on their shirts, some on their seat, and maybe a little in there tummy. They like mac n’ cheese, cookies, crackers, and pretty much anything else…
