Unleavened University Park

Unleavened University Park

If there’s one thing I LOVE most about this season of marriage it’s getting to date my hubby over and over again whenever we want. We’re taking total advantage of these “kid free” weekends while we our on our journey to pregnancy and they are THE BEST.  Saturday evening we made our way to Unleavened in University Park! I cannot believe I haven’t been to this area yet, there were so many unique shops and things to do. We will definitely be making our way back to check it out.  The first thing we do when finding a cool foodie...

Mudhen Meat & Greens-Dallas

Mudhen Meat & Greens-Dallas

I cannot get over how amazing our experience at Mudhen Meat & Greens was. It made for a perfect date night before going into the Labor Day weekend. Orlando and I made reservations to check out their dinner menu and I have been super excited to sit down and share it with y’all.    We slowly wandered in on Saturday night after capturing the perfect insta worthy sunset around the outdoor patio area. Immediately we were greeted by the friendly hostess that politely held the door for us as we made our way in.  I was taken over by the...

3 INGREDIENT REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS

3 Ingredient Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

These are the PERFECT treat to keep in the freezer and pull out when you want something sweet without the guilt. Every time I make these I wonder why the heck I don’t make them more often. Super simple + more than likely you’ll have the ingredients in your pantry already. #winning (If you are following along with me in the 100 Workout Challenge, 2 cups = 1/2 Red + 2 tsp) INGREDIENTS: 1 heaping TB coconut oil, melted 2 tsp peanut butter, melted (a little more if needed) 1 scoop/packet Vegan Chocolate Shakeology DIRECTIONS: 1.

SPAGHETTI SQUASH CHICKEN ALFREDO

SPAGHETTI SQUASH CHICKEN ALFREDO

What’s better than a healthy meal where the veggies are packed in without you even knowing? NOTHING!  Orlando and I are on a two week no eating out self created challenge. The first day was so daunting to me…not that we eat out every day but to imagine cooking multiple nights a week especially over the weekend seemed like a LOT on top of my already busy schedule. I also was secretly pouting about how boring it was going to be to eat the same things over and over and quickly decided that wasn’t going to work for me. So...

5 Things you probably don’t know about me:

5 Things you probably don’t know about me:

I am an only child to a single mother.  I literally wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. My mom is my best-friend. We argue like sisters…we have had knock-out drag-out fights but we know at the end of the day we are each others biggest fans. She believes in me with her whole heart and that is the greatest feeling in the world. Growing up my mother struggled financially to keep her head above water and I watched, I learned, and she taught me how to turn that around for myself. As you can imagine this played a huge...

Review of Dog Haus (Arlington)

Review of Dog Haus (Arlington)

The hubs has been begging me to check out Dog Haus at its newest location in the Arlington Highlands for two weeks straight. With friends in town last weekend we hadn’t gotten the free time to go, so he made an impromptu date night in the middle of the week and wasn’t taking no for an answer. Hot dogs….covered in chili? I can’t lie I had no desire to go…probably the last thing on my list of preferred foods but OKAY, let’s go (anything for you babe, lol)… I was secretly hoping they had salads on their menu, until i...

Healthy Blueberry Muffins- perfect for on the go breakfast

Healthy Blueberry Muffins- perfect for on the go breakfast

The last 10 minutes before walking out the door for work are usually super hectic. I’m typically scrambling to gather all my food for the day and always, ALWAYS have my chocolate shake for breakfast. Quick, easy, and fuels my body.  When meal prepping I LOVE adding a little extra to my breakfast routine like these healthy blueberry muffins (bonus: they are husband approved too). The simplicity in this recipe makes it perfect for traveling, after school snacks, and more.  Most importantly they are BURSTING with blueberry flavor, being by far one of my favorite muffin recipes. The ingredients are...

Miscarriage Sucks

Miscarriage Sucks

While not everyone agrees, I feel like this was a life experience that I needed to share and after months of being on the fence about starting my blog I knew in my heart that NOW was the time. I wanted somewhere to express my feelings and get them out of my head, not only for my own personal healing but to hopefully help someone who may be going through the same thing. Unfortunately, I am realizing more and more that miscarriage is common, but also a subject that isn’t talked about a lot.  Let the adventure begin The summer...
