Our Kitchen Remodel

Hi family and friends! 👋

We are officially in Fall, and whew this year is FLYING BY! Lots of life is happening all around me, and I couldn't be more excited for another holiday season approaching! If Halloween was any indication of how the rest of the year will go, bring it on! 

Before we get to Thanksgiving though, we decided to throw in a little home remodel of our... KITCHEN! Truthfully we started the process in the beginning of the year and it's just coming down to getting in the granite slabs in town and figuring out the last details, but we'll get to that soon. :) 

In the beginning of the year we started looking at granite to redo our kitchen countertops. It's been on the agenda for awhile, but having such small children, we decided to wait a few years as we have with getting a new table and couch. It's just a whole different level of meeting them where they're at and letting them be kids. It's easier to upgrade when they are a bit older (and hopefully wiser). TBD if waiting until ages six and three was long enough!

Finding granite was nearly impossible this year, so drilling down to what we were looking for was actually harder than I thought it would be. We drove to other cities to view stock and see them in person, and eventually found our slabs to purchase. That's another thing, we ended up with slabs, so they have to be cut.

Granite Countertops

We decided to go with White Ice, which is a whiter granite mixed with gray and black tones, which matches the interior of our home. Heads up that the cut of this particular granite is starting to get some yellow in it. We ordered/shipped two that made it look like macaroni and cheese was spilt, and I didn't think I could handle it long-term. It would just always look dirty to me. However, if there was more strategically placed, it may not be as bad. Just something to note when you're looking. White Ice is beautiful, and I'm excited to see it in our home! 


We decided to go with Stow tiles, the 4x8 option in Bianco Glossy White. I do love the marshmallow matte as well, but ultimately didn't want the grout to show and it's easier to hide with bright white. With marshmallow, the color is not a bright white, so matching grout and tile would just be a little harder and I couldn't visualize it as much as the perfect sample of the other in front of me. If you're in between the two, either would honestly be a great choice!

Natucer Stow Spanish Ceramic Tile | 4 x 8 | Bianco Glossy White

They came yesterday to tear out the old tile and backsplash, so we're currently sitting with some wood, no sink and no stove right now.

Here's how we prepped:

- Plastic Bowls
- Plastic Silverware
- Plastic Cups
- Meat Cooked at the Grocery Store
- Microwaveable Macaroni and Cheese Singles
- Yogurts

We're knee deep in the heart of it all, so I'll give everyone an update when it gets closer to completion (and a good before/after). 

Excited to update you all soon!

UPDATE: We're all done!

It's been quite a process, but I couldn't be happier with the outcome! We officially finished three days before Christmas with painting, and it turned out great! I'll share some photos with you below:

Sweet and Simple Chicken Recipe

Super Sweet and Simple Chicken Recipe

Hi friends! 👋

We're right smack dab in the middle of the Christmas season, and boy is it busy! This is when I tend to rely on cookies and healthier meal options to balance. 😂

The recipe I have for you today is a super simple and easy one to make, I call my super sweet and simple chicken recipe. I've made it every week so far this December, so you know it has to be easy! I actually saw something similar added to fish, and thought to myself.. I don't eat fish, but I bet this would be good on chicken! I played around with it quite a bit, and this is how I'm saving/making it from here on out. I hope you enjoy!

This specific chicken recipe is on the healthier side, made with raw honey and deli mustard. When you bit into it, you get a nice and moist chicken, with a sweet top and an added little kick from the mustard. As a healthier option, I recommend making two and meal prepping the second one for later! 

Chicken Ingredients

  • Two Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • Raw Honey
  • Deli Mustard
  • (Optional Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt)
  • Olive Oil

Ingredient Notes

I preheat my toaster oven to 375 degrees.

I initially add two tablespoons of honey and two tablespoons of deli mustard in a small ramekin. Mix it really good and set it aside.

I put the chicken on foil (with a little olive oil on the bottom so it won't stick) and sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic salt on top. Mine all comes as one, but you can do each individually as well.

Then I take half of the mixture and spread it on top, leaving some leftover for when the chicken comes out of the toaster oven. 

I put it in for 40 minutes, making sure the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 when taking it out.

Once done, I add the additional mixture on top, cut and enjoy! Yes, it's really that simple!

Recipe Equipment

  • Small Ramekin
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Toaster Oven
  • Spoon

The equipment is simple for this recipe. Of course if you don't have a toaster oven, you can always use a convectional oven. Mine just heats up so much faster and always has the tray sitting inside waiting to be utilized, so I tend to cook with this option first if just for myself.

  • This recipe is for two pieces of boneless chicken
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container, in the fridge

Moms, We're All Just Doing the Best We Can

Sunday, October 3, 2021 California, USA

Hi family and friends! 👋

We were at the pool the other day for an hour and a half with a mom and her daughter. As she was leaving, she made a comment about how we pretty much had the whole thing to ourselves today, followed by “you’re a really good mom and your kids are so well behaved”. 

It made my whole freaking day! 

What I see all day is her getting to spend 1:1 time, focused on one child’s attention, playing silly games with her. I admired how attentive she was and how well she conversed about all the rules she her daughter created on the fly. She was smiling, laughing and giggling having a good time the entire time. Me on the other hand, had three bathroom trips for the oldest, two for the youngest (so we all get out and go together each time), one kid in the deep end one in the shallow, one wanting the hot tub and one wanting to sit out, one in timeout for not listening. I spent half of the time out of the pool walking back and forth like a lifeguard so I could see both, throwing dive sticks, blowing up tubes, trying to get the kids to drink water, picking up toys. 😂 

Not even sitting in a lawn chair cuddling my son for 10 minutes and watching my daughter in the kids hot tub did I think about how well I was doing. I was focused on what I couldn’t provide.. the individual attention for each child like she could. 

Thankfully she saw the beauty in today’s chaos and what I was doing and let me know. 

I hope I can relay the same message to another tired, yet doting toddler mom I meet who’s also doing the best she can. ❤️

Be kind to each other. We're all on the same team. 

I hope you all have a fantastic week!

What I Eat in a Day Tracking Macros

Sunday, September 5, 2021 California, USA

Hi family and friends! 👋

I hope you all are having an amazing day and productive week. I recently had a day of downtime, where the kids and I stayed home, caught lizards, splashed in the hot tub and enjoyed all of those toys they only see every so often when we're not running to and from one place to the other. As stir crazy as I can go staying home, I'm currently sitting here listening to giggling at the table, watching out of the corner of my eye them eating their after dinner bowl of cereal, just because. Truthfully, they love it!

I know a lot of people ask what I eat in a day, so I want to try and document my meals every so often for you to get an idea of what my day look like when it comes to food. Today worked out for me to be home for all four meals, so I went for it! 

First, lets go over what my macros are for the day!

Sleep: 7 hours, 30 minutes

Workout: 0

Meals: 4

Protein: 135g

Fat: 45g

Carbs: 20g

Meal One:


Egg Whites

Eggs Whole

Meal Four:

Although I wouldn't say this is a typical day (Monday through Friday looks a lot different with workouts and a more routine day), it's good to get an idea of how simple and straight forward it really can be! If the numbers look a little overwhelming, check out the post on Why I Love the RP Diet App, as all of them are factored and edited throughout your journey. You just enter some information to start and each week, and the rest is really done for you. You enter what you want to eat and the app tells you how much (or reminds you just how many carbs are in that item you love). Truly the simplest way to hit your nutrition goals in my opinion.

How to Make a T-Shirt into a Women's Muscle Tank

Saturday, August 28, 2021


Hi family and friends! 👋

I was at the gym the other day, and I saw two friends with super cute muscle tanks.. that they both did themselves! So it got me thinking, how many shirts in my closet do I not wear because they are boring t-shirts? Which could I make into cute wearable muscle tanks? How the heck do I cut it so it's just as cute?

Muscle tanks have been around forever, however, they've definitely been seen a lot more recently as a cute cover up before workouts or to wear during your workout (me!). I recently purchased a women's muscle tank on Amazon to start wearing to the gym. What I love about it? The color and fabric. What I would change? Arm holes not going out so wide to show side boob and a shorter length. 😂

Because my side boob shows a different color sports bra (not in the cute way), I don't wear it unless to bed. BUT, I still want a cute one! 


First friend: "I did two inches at the top and then kind of winged it"

Second friend: "I did this so long ago"

Final thoughts: I can do it myself, but will have to do by trial and error

So I decided just to take a shirt out of my closet and practice!

Step 1: Grab your supplies

- Shirt

- Scissors

- Tape Measure

- Marker


Step 2: Decide the top width

I chose two inches and marked both sides. I also folded in half to make sure both sides were similar.

Step 3: Figure out how far down on the sides you want the arm holes to go

I wanted them a little bit higher, so I chose to go one inch down from the arm hole seam. I again folded in half to make sure both sides were similar.

Step 4: Start cutting, one side at a time! 

I went down from the top, and then cut in an L shape to the second marker. Don't worry about them being 100% even, as you will also be stretching the arm holes after.

Step 5: After both sides are cut, stretch the armholes out, which causes the new cut to roll a bit. 

Step 6: If you want a shorter length, cut the bottom.

(I skipped this step with my trial and error shirt, but will probably do this in the future.)

Step 7: Wear your new creation with pride! 


Making a t-shirt into a women's muscle tank was actually easier than I initially thought. I hope you have a similar experience! 

3 Tips for Visiting Legoland California

Monday, August 9, 2021 Carlsbad, CA, USA

* I'm not in anyway affiliated with Legoland and didn't get compensated for my trip. We just enjoyed our trip so much that I wanted to share it with friends and family. Information expressed and shared are all my own opinions. Enjoy!

Legoland California sign

We recently took a trip to Southern California to one of their newest most beloved amusement parks, Legoland! Legoland is a little chunk of kid paradise in the city of Carlsbad, California. Growing up going to theme parks in Southern California, I began to wonder why I've never been to this place. Well, it's because it opened when I was a teenager, which in my opinion, is a little out of age range unless you're going with younger children.

I would say Legoland California is perfect for ages 2-9 (we did have a nine year old with us and he did have fun), and offers the right amount of fun, rides and kid exploration for 2-3 days of fun. We bought the Legoland/Aquarium/Waterpark pass staying for three nights, playing two full days- and it was the perfect amount of time! We stayed at the Legoland Castle Resort, just steps from the main entrance of Legoland, California. We had such a great time, so much so that I'd love to share three tips with you if you plan to visit the park soon as well. 😊

Don't forget to pin for later!

1. Stay at the Legoland Resort

   There's many times you plan a trip, and it's so much less to sleep a few miles away. I do this when I go to Disneyland, and I'm actually not going to do it the next time I visit. Here's why! The hotel is set up to be a secondary park in itself. We stayed at the Legoland Castle Hotel, and it had a million (okay, maybe a little less) things to do! There's a park that we visited morning, afternoon until well in the evening. They have magic shows, story time and entertainment going on throughout the day on a patch of grass. They have an outdoor movie theater and pool with pool Legos. Inside they have a slide, a throne, and little Lego people throughout. On top of the continental breakfast and on-going activities outdoors, you also get in an hour early into the park. Although not every ride is open right away (at least when we visited), you can start your plan of attack and be one of the first when they do open. We did this both days with Ninjago and rode both times with almost no wait.. like, it took longer to walk through the line than getting on the ride itself.

The room itself has a fun Lego experience and has the whole Lego theme as well. There's a bed for adults, and then bunk beds with a TV around the corner (although mine all piled into one). 😆 

The buffet breakfast, amenities, early park access and how close the hotel is to the entrance is definitely worth it!

2. Visit in the Beginning of the Week

    I'm sure you're thinking that summer is the worst time to travel to a California amusement park. If so, you're thinking the same as my husband was when I told him we were going mid-summer. Lol. His patience is very limited when it comes to waiting for rides! We actually planned this trip around family, as they were visiting the park at the end of July. Even though it could be hot and busy, we jumped on board and purchased tickets for the same days. I'm here to tell you, we didn't wait more than 15 minutes for any ride- most being around five minutes or less! We made sure to hit the most popular rides first thing, and then spent the afternoon visiting the little parks inside, eating and playing various games along the way. We honestly didn't have many issues visiting the main park on Tuesday, followed by the Waterpark on Wednesday. We did the aquarium in the evening on Tuesday, and that was easy (and so much fun) as well. 

There wasn't a line when we arrived to check in, but there definitely was one when we were leaving, so my tip would be to time your trip for earlier in the week if possible.

3. Buy the Legoland/Water Park/Aquarium Pass

    Most amusement parks are now starting to open a water park on top of the normal park, which in California I think is a great idea! We purchased one day at Legoland, one day at the Waterpark and an Aquarium pass. What I love about this is that you're not limited to just the Waterpark for the day! It's in the back corner of the park, and we were still able to ride a few rides we didn't get to the day before, and then get wet for the day. We visited the waterpark for a few hours, played a game or two on the way back to the hotel, slept and then went back out to the park for the last hour and rode five rides before closing! The aquarium itself was so fun, which I wasn't expecting much to be honest. They have little stamp books, so you could see how far you were into the adventure throughout. Each area was well done, and I honestly could have gone through again. This may seem like an add on, but it was actually one of my favorite moments from the trip. Make sure not to skip it!

How to Have a Great Weekend in Lake Tahoe

Monday, July 12, 2021 Lake Tahoe, United States

Hi family and friends! 👋🏻

I hope you all are enjoying your summer! I know we are over here. 😎

I recently got back from one of the places I love visiting every year, Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is an absolutely beautiful lake, sitting between California and Nevada with more than enough to do for any traveling enthusiast. I've done ski trips, hiking trips, family and best friend trips. I've gone for a bachelorette party, a wedding and a crazy 4th of July boating holiday weekend. I've gone camping, stayed in cabins, hotels and resorts on the North and South shore. It's all breathtaking and worth the trip anytime of the year! Because I know this could be a place you plan to add to your bucket list, I wanted to put together a couple itineraries I've loved! 

First, North and South shore Lake Tahoe are vastly different. For the most part, you'll find a lot more of the fun nightlife and casinos in the South shore, and the more laid back vibe in the North. However, it's easy to travel the lake, so find a spot that suits you and make sure you have a car!

My last trip was a girls trip where we stayed in a cabin in Truckee, California. Truckee is a beautiful little mountain town on the outskirts of Lake Tahoe. They have a cute little downtown and an easy way into the West side of Lake Tahoe. Truckee has cabins, but is also filled with lots of locals, boutique shops and restaurants. Truckee is more North West, so we ventured North clockwise around the lake in the morning down to South Shore our first day. The East side of the lake is more scenic, so it was a beautiful drive down to the casino area. First we did the Heavenly gondola, observation deck, hiking to the roller coaster and then shopping at the bottom. After a great morning, we headed to The Beacon Bar & Grill for a late lunch/dinner and some beach time. We found a frisbee and honestly enjoyed the water until the sun went down, driving the rest of the lake back (with a quick stop at Emerald Bay of course). It was a perfect relaxing girls weekend, and a good way to maximize the weekend in such a gorgeous area! 



- Staying in a cabin or resort

- Camping at Camp Richardson

- Driving all the way around the lake

- Hiking! (Maggie's Peak across from Emerald Bay is a great one if you have 1/2 of a day)

- Heavenly gondola, observation deck, hiking, roller coaster, zip line, tubing, food at the top

- Shopping/eating at the bottom of Heavenly

- The Beacon Bar & Grill, great beach, dock and beach dining

- Stand up paddle boarding and kayaking on the lake (they have clear kayaks you can rent too)

- Rent a boat for the day (Pontoon boats are very fun here as well as a ski boat)

- Sand Harbor (we did our engagement photos here, and it was beautiful)


- Stay in a cabin

- Snowboarding at the resorts: Northstar, Heavenly, Kirkwood and Homewood are some of my favs! 

- The shops at Heavenly

- Ice Skating and hot chocolate at Northstar Resort


- Gambling at a Casino

- Concert at Harvey's Outdoor Arena

- Golf at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course

- Mini Golf in Kings Beach

- Milkshake at the Char Pit 

- Rent bikes (Incline Village on North Shore, Anderson Bikes on South Shore- 7 miles roundtrip to Baldwin Beach for a picnic

- Catch crawdads

- Emerald Bay by boat or hike

- Truckee Rafting

- Ropes Course (Treetop Adventures)

- Donner Train Tunnel hike

I hope this list helps! Don't forget to pin for later. 😍

Best of luck with your upcoming travels to beautiful Lake Tahoe!

Hi family and friends! 👋

I can't believe it, but my little site just hit over 10,000 views!!! When I started this journey 16 weeks ago, I honestly didn't think 10,000 views was possible in the first year (even 100 people viewing it within the first year seemed like a lot). 😂 

Thank you for supporting my journey, and for proving me wrong in the best possible way! 

With lots of love, appreciation and excitement.

Five Spring/Summer Finds

I only ever endorse products that I have personally used and benefited from personally, so I know you'll love the product(s). Full terms can be found here.

Hi family and friends! 👋

I've done some fun "getting ready for summer" purchases lately on Amazon, so I wanted to share them with you! Click on any of the photos below to read reviews and shop! 


Crop Tank

I'm actually wearing this one today, and boy is it breezy! I got it in the light purple color, and let me tell you..  the online color doesn't do it justice. It's soft, sits perfectly to where my stomach isn't hanging out, but it also isn't super tight for afternoon runs or gym sessions. I purchased one to start, but plan to purchase black when it comes back in stock in my size. I wear a small, and I feel like it's true to size. Click the photo above to learn more.


Outdoor Chair

Another true favorite lately, as I'm spending more and more time outside at the kids' sporting events! I originally purchased a small chair that was incredibly hard to put together and take apart, so much so that I didn't- I just carried it a couple of weeks put together to and from the field. Let me tell you, this chair is the complete opposite! One, it rocks. Two, it has a movable cover to hide the sun from your face. Three, it folds so easily and four, the bag it comes in is oversized, so you're not trying to squeeze it in and out of the bag each time. Also, the blue is beautiful. I'd purchase this one over and over again. Click the photo above to add one to your shopping cart.


Burger Maker

Another easy thing that I'm just LOVING right now! I originally purchased this for my husband, but let's be honest, I'm the only one using it. It makes burgers the right thickness and perfectly portioned. It's the most simple contraption, but it works! Also, extremely easy to clean. I plan on using this all summer long! Click the photo to learn more.

Tanning Lotion

There are a plethora of tanning lotions out there, and I'm sure they all work well. However, this keeps being my go-to! I've tried the drops in regular lotion and have had streaks on my legs for a week. I've tried brands that turn me orange. This one is fool proof. It gives me a little shade (so it doesn't look like I work inside an office all day!) and never has given me anything other than a glow. And you can't beat the price! Click on the photo above to shop.


Since my before and after photos with RP, this may be one of the questions I've received the most, "where did you purchase your purple bikini?" Who would have known that me pulling out the top swimsuit in my drawer for a photo 'for myself' to track progress would have gone viral. However, here it is, and it's under $25! Click the photo to purchase one of your own in a color you love!

10 Simple Seasonings to Spice Up Any Meal

10 simple seasonings to spice up any meal

Hi family and friends! 👋

I hope you all are having a great week. This post is probably LONG overdue, as I get so many comments on Instagram asking how I spice up my meals, since you all know I tend to eat a lot of the same things over and over. This one is so important, as it keeps things interesting, but doesn't add extra calories to your meal so you stay on track. Although this list isn't the full list of what I use, it definitely includes the ones you see most often. Let's dig in!

Cinnamon Bun Seasoning

  • Greek Yogurt
  • English Muffin
  • Pita Bread
I eat Cinnamon Bun Flavoring on my Greek yogurt every single day! So much in fact, that I just ordered three at a time I go through it so quickly. However, I also use it on bread options as well. Generally I eat carbs with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray because I use my fats for other things, so adding some flavoring to a somewhat bland piece of bread really helps! 

Chocolate Donut Seasoning

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Casein Shake
  • Whey Protein Shake
Like the Cinnamon Bun Flavoring, this one goes on my Greek yogurt most days as well. Again, it adds a little ump to a somewhat bland meal. Unlike Cinnamon Bun, I also use this in shakes, as most are chocolate, and it gives a little bit more to the overall taste!

Bacon Flavor Seasoning

  • Eggs
This is a specialty seasoning, and not something I use all that often. However, if you're a huge bacon lover, you may want to try it! I sometimes utilize it on my eggs to switch it up, and it works. I could also see this being used on hamburgers, pizza, etc. (because when is bacon ever a bad thing)?


Ranch Seasoning

  • Crockpot Crack Chicken Recipe

I make Crockpot crack chicken generally once a week, and it's always in my fridge. Because of this, I skip the cute little packets and purchased the big tub! As a main ingredient, I go through it often, so it's always good to have on hand. If you haven't tried this incredibly easy recipe, you can view it here.

Taco Seasoning

  • Crockpot Chicken Recipe
This is another seasoning that is never bad to have on hand. I generally use it for my Crockpot salsa chicken, so it's always good to have in a big tub! If you haven't tried making salsa chicken before, you can view how to make this super simple recipe here.

Garlic Salt

  • Homemade Pizza
  • Hamburger
  • Pita Bread
Garlic salt or powder adds so much flavor, especially to pizza or hamburger! Although these are the main ways I like to use it, I also use it every now and then on a piece of pita bread with some meals.

Salt & Pepper

  • Everything.. J/K
  • Eggs
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel Sprouts
I feel like these are staples in everyone's home, but if you're not using them to spice up your foods- you're missing out! I would say out of every spice I own, these two are used the most. 

Truffle Salt

  • Eggs
This is another specialty spice, and one I don't use as often (but man is it good)! If you're a fan of Tim Ferriss, he introduced me to this incredible spice on eggs years ago, and I'm so glad he did. If you eat a lot of eggs and egg whites like I do, check this one out!


Everything But The Bagel Seasoning

  • Eggs
  • Homemade bagels
  • Any type of bread
This is a very universal seasoning, and another one that I think is so great to have on hand. I like it for homemade bagels or bread primarily, but it really can be used on almost anything. 


Cinnamon Seasoning

  • Pita Bread
  • Tortilla
  • English Muffin
  • Oatmeal
  • Yogurt
  • Pancake/Waffle mix
  • French Toast
Cinnamon is a wonderful staple to have on hand. I generally use it on bread, but it could be used for a variety of things, so definitely make sure you have this one!
