Hi guys! I hope you had your morning cup of coffee and the sun is shining wherever you are. I feel summer coming soon. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.

It’s still a little too chilly for me to get my bike on in the mornings by the lake unless I really bundle up. Last week I went for a ride and couldn’t feel my hands for 30 minutes after.

This week was another crazy one. Not only did Tony finally quit his job (go babe, go!), but I found myself with a full fridge after testing more recipes for the Healthy Glow. Co than you can even imagine. It’s been busy and I’m ready to hit the pause button, kick up my feet, slam a GT’s grape divine kombucha and watch Netflix the entire weekend. (TELL ME YOUR FAV SHOWS!)

Granted, I do have to finish putting the final touches on our save the dates. Getting a little bit delirious over here.

Finally I’m sharing a few of our engagement photos with all of you!

Monday marked 7 months to go until our wedding (OMG!) so I figured it’s about time that you get to see all of these incredibly special photos that were shot back in March. My good friend Sarah was kind enough to take them for us and because she’s so ridiculously talented, I knew they would be completely perfect in every way.

We wandered over to Garfield Park Conservatory on a rainy Saturday afternoon and fell in love. If you’re ever looking for a place to do your engagement photos on a rainy day, this is my favorite spot.

This shoot felt so much like us — nature, dancing and each other. At one point we even danced to Mumford and Sons; you’ll know it when you see it.

Enjoy! And if you haven’t read our love story yet, you can find it here.

How are you guys? I mean seriously, how are you? 

To be honest, I find myself sitting here feeling overwhelmed and slightly anxious for a plethora of different reasons. And it’s not because I’m watching Matthew Mcconaughey be extra awkward in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days or anything. Rather, I think I’m feeling a little chaotic because over the past few months life has gotten a little insane with work and now, our wedding.

Welcome Friday, I welcome you with open arms. ALSO apologies for missing last week’s weekend favorites. My good friend was in town and we shot engagement photos and some cool stuff for Under Armour Women.

This week has been insane, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Abra and I have been busy in the kitchen every single day cranking out recipes, and it looks like it will be the same for the next few weeks as we prepare for the Healthy Glow Co‘s second meal plan release and an exciting new 30 day April challenge. Look for more details on that SOON!

Another weekend is here. It’s as if I ask myself every day how life seems to be passing by so quickly. The later I get into my twenties, the more of a Grandma I’m turning into. This weekend I’ll be staying in to finish my taxes. It’s going to be a real rager (heavy sarcasm).

Not that I really mind one bit. I’ll take a jar of old people butterscotch candies (okay they actually are really good) and a marathon in front of the TV with a batch of cookies any day over going out and partying. That phase of my life is long gone.

I’m officially a Grandma in a 28 year old body.

We returned late Monday night from our little vacation in Arizona and I’ve been busy playing catch up. Not only am I exhausted, but I’ve been chugging kombucha like water and putting turmeric in everything I eat. Super trendy, I know.

Rather than work, my mind is begging me to lay on the couch and watch old episodes of Felicity, just so I can stare at Ben and reminisce about how simple life was back then. Sometimes adulting is hard, ya know?

But seriously, the mini vacation we took WAS AMAZING. I am planning on sharing more next week about where we hiked because it was stunning.

Happy, happy Friday! I’m so sorry to have missed last week’s Weekend Favorites! I try my very best to get the out every week, but last weekend I was in California for a short trip, then flew back home for 24 hours and took off again to head to Arizona.

Don’t be afraid of tofu, check out this tofu guide with easy recipes and tips on how to prepare and cook tofu! From stir-fry to pudding pie and smoothies!

Happy Monday… Or should I say Meatless Monday? How was your weekend? Mine felt like it was as indulgent as ever, and now I’m on a mission to eat a little better, choosing lean proteins, lots of veggies and changing up my eating routine (I’ve been a naughty girl).

If there’s something I love to do when I find myself in a little bit of a food rut, is clean out my pantry and fridge, head to the store and pick up something new. This week, tofu is on the agenda! Recently I became a brand ambassador for Nasoya tofu (their products are non-GMO yay!). I have to say, it’s extremely exciting for me to be able to share more tofu recipes with you for a few reasons:

1.) I know many of you love eating plant based foods, or are vegetarian.

2.) My mom used to be a vegan chef (seriously!) so she’s very experienced in cooking with vegan foods, including tofu.

3.) It’s FUN to introduce new recipes & foods; the more you know the more comfortable you are in the kitchen.
