October Favourites

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a Monthly Faves post, but it seemed like a nice and concise way to recap October: our last month as a family of 3! November is going to be a crazy one over here, so I’ve tried to enjoy October to its fullest, in particular the amazing weather we’ve been having as of late. It’s definitely my favourite time of year in Queensland. read more

Foto Recap: Weekend In Byron Bay

We enjoyed a lovely Labour Day long weekend over the past few days here in Australia. Adam and I decided it would be nice to get away for a couple of nights before our parenting duties double. In our 2+ years here in Brisbane, we’ve seen a fair bit of the Sunshine and Gold coasts, but one place we hadn’t spent any time was Byron Bay. A town renown for its beaches, backpackers and bohemian style, we had a great couple of days roaming around this little beachside gem. Our last mini getaway as a family of three! read more

What My Twenties Taught Me

This is it! My last weekend as a 20-something woman. In some ways, it feels like this decade has come and gone in the blink of an eye. I remember my 20th birthday like it was yesterday. Actually, no…who am I kidding? That’s totally a lie. I actually have very foggy recollections of that particular celebration, but I suppose that’s simply indicative of all the fun we had on June 30th, ’04! 😉 read more

A Few Confessions…and a Surprise!

So, I have some confessions…

I came home from the grocery store last week with a giant bag of sour cream and chives chips. Twice.

I have been eating way too much chocolate.

And waaaaay too much bread.

’ve been napping every day.

I’ve barely been teaching Body Attack and even turned down a permanent teaching role at my gym. read more

Over Coffee [06.05.18]

Oh man, you guys! Clearly an update is in order! If it wasn’t 8:45pm, I would definitely dive into a big cup of java.

1. You’d think I would have a million and one things to ramble on about in this Over Coffee post, but the truth is, I don’t. I feel like I am SO boring lately, which may be a large part of the reason I haven’t been blogging much. read more

March Favourites

It’s a couple days later than I had hoped, but here it is…my March Faves!

Breakfast

Breakfast. Brunch. Brinner. It’s always been a fact that I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day. It’s a definite favourite. March was no exception, and I also believe I upped the ante. During our New Zealand trip, I did everything possible to find breakfast options wherever we went. My favourite choice/indulgence on vacation was this French toast brioche. I ended up eating a very similar meal a few days later in a completely different town because I couldn’t stop thinking about it! {I do make a healthier French toast at home, but the one from vacay- pictured below- was off the charts}. read more

20 Things You Didn’t Know About Me: Vol. 1

Oh, why hello there!

You’re going to have to start calling me Houdini. Listen. I know. Sometimes I am all over this blogging thing, and other days/weeks I just have to throw in the towel. I have plenty of excuses for not writing consistently, but this week, sleep has trumped computer time.

I have several half-written and drafted posts just waiting to be cared for, but after finishing a late night workout, I just want to write unrestrictedly before I hit the hay for the evening. So, I thought I’d whip up my first ever “20 Things You {Probably} Didn’t Know About Me” post (unless your name is Adam, Mom, Dad, or Martha). read more
