Easy Energy Ball Recipe

Chopped Brussels Sprouts Salad

This recipe is one of my favorite salads, a chopped brussels sprouts salad.  It’s a copy cat from a local restaurant in Montclair, Fin.  We went to dinner there with friends and my girlfriend and I inhaled this salad.  We analyzed every bit and what was in it, so that we could re-create it at […] Read more…

On a happier note, I […] Read more…

Friday Round Up

Happy Friday babes!  This week was just legitimately all kinds of crazy.  Both kids went back to school and it threw us all for a loop.  Waking up so much earlier is no joke and definitely tough for my late sleepers (not complaining about that at all!)  I’m so excited to not have any plans […] Read more…

Life | Friday

+ Do any of you follow Whitney?  I loved her interview with the CEO of Simply Stylist.  She’s relatable, interesting, and has such a chic haircut! + A great mantra on being the flamingo in a pack of pigeons.  I dig it. + This pillow. It is absolute perfection!  When did I stop gravitating towards grays and […] Read more…
