A morning walk with Knox.  He is also waking up at 4 am each morning.  I think our bodies are just telling us that we should have stayed in Spain.

It was a pretty typical day for us:

We tried the Salmon Pinwheels with Spinach and Mediterranean Style Herb, Feta Cheese Wrapped in Salmon from TJ’s… it won for a quick dinner that Andrew grilled up on the bbq.

And we finished up the day outside.

Favorites time: 

*Here’s what I packed, wore, and loved for our trip!  

Pink sweater tunic

Shoes that I wore every day (the comfort was unmatched… perfect walking shoe that matches everything)

Long sleeve grey shirt (so soft you want to live in it)

Cargo joggers (color bone)

Black cargo joggers

Black and white t-shirts (skims dupe for cheap that are so so good, I also have it in grey and could live in these)

Black jumpsuit


Abercrombie Jeans

Flare leggings

Black jacket

Bombas socks (for walking and running)

Levis off white jeans

Gap jeans (with seam down the front)

Button up white shirt

Mango leather jacket

Target t-shirt (lightest t-shirt on the planet)

Cross-body bag


Michael Kors bag (just a tiny bit different… $98, normally $398)

Watch (my review here)… it is officially my favorite watch I’ve ever had.


Our luggage set that we love!

These and these sunglasses

*Andrew won with this purchase. We don’t really need a stroller at home anymore, but we needed one for this trip. Andrew found this one, and I’m glad he knew we would need one that folded up small for the planes, trains, busses, and taxis. The stroller was perfect for getting Beck around and the ideal size with a base to fit a bag and a shade on top, but then it compacted to fit wherever we were going.

*A few of you told me to try these from TJ’s, and we will all love you forever because of this recommendation.

These things puffed up so big overnight and tasted almost as good as the ones we ate daily last week.  Next time, I will try an egg wash on them to give them a bit glossier on top.  We are big fans of these.

*I used this sauce from Costco for our enchiladas, and now I want to pour it on everything I eat.  It’s spicy, and now that I’m looking at the picture below, I realize we ate it past its expiration date, so that’s another bonus… it still tastes fantastic ;)

*Love is Blind.  It makes me feel so uncomfortable, but I can’t stop watching.

Tell me about any fun plans you have this weekend!

Who else is watching Love is Blind?  Thoughts?  Does it hurt you as much as it hurts me to watch?

Pay attention to expiration dates or not so much?

Thoughts and feelings on fish… love it or pass?

We are still waking up at 4 am and wondering when we will adjust to our regular schedules. The girls wanted to go on a walk with me, but walking when it is 17° isn’t possible for me, so we went to the indoor track. They got in some sprints, and Brooke decided to run … Continue Reading

  Before I get into some lessons, I have a few things from around here… This meal was absolutely delicious and so easy.  I got the idea from HERE, and everything was from Trader Joe’s and so easy. You just bake the chicken with the tomatoes for 25 minutes at 350° and then cut the … Continue Reading

Another day that I’m taking running off.  Usually, I try to get on the peloton or out for some short runs by now after a marathon, but I’m trying to shake things up and give my body more time to rest before I get moving again.  If you struggle to take a break after marathons, … Continue Reading

Good morning! We are back in Utah and attempting to figure out the proper hours to sleep again.  Today’s post is filled with so many thoughts, let’s get started: *Choose ‘heads’ when flipping a coin to decide who has to sit by the youngest on long flights. It worked in my favor both ways;).   … Continue Reading

Another bucket-list item for the big kids ✔️. They both got up on it multiple times. Skye and Beck worked on their boogie board. And I loved documenting. Didn’t have any chocolate croissants with us, so we compromised with this😉 Went to the Roman theatre… Over 2000 years old. We couldn’t find gelato, but we … Continue Reading
