30 weeks

These days are flying by. I have my 30 week check up this morning. 30 weeks! That makes it sound like I am having a baby very soon! Although I still have 10 weeks to go, I am anxiously awaiting the day. I am ready to meet the new little Mr. or Ms. In the…

Success is Consistent

‘Success comes from what you do consistently’ Overnight is not where most find success. They find it after years of long, hard work. They find it after a passion has been ignited inside of them and go chase it. They find success after many bumps, bruises, and blisters. However, sometimes I think working towards the…

Start Now

As summer begins to wind down, it is easy to slip into a lazier routine for a lot of people. Fall is in the air, baking is a go to activity, the gym is almost empty this time of year, and the ‘Jan. 1st I will begin again’ is too close for comfort. Keep going….

I am Powerful

I woke up this morning with a goal of being motivated. A goal of crushing this day. Running the day instead of it running me. I was ready to really get after myself. By 5:45 AM I was awake with a ¬†screaming baby, next came the dog messing on the floor, and then my husband…

A little Fitness Update

It has been awhile since I have talked to you all about fitness. I feel like I started this blog to talk about fitness and it has gone in the direction of nutrition, mom life, farm life, and adventuring! Which, by the way, I am totally ok with since that is my life. But I…

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,…

Set the Tone Today

Having a powerful, useful, hardworking Monday can help set the tone for the rest of the week. Be that girl who shines today and not the one in her Monday outfit complaining about the week ahead. Think of all you can accomplish this week, all you can change, all you can do to get closer…

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…
