Dear LAWD I love pumpkin. Once I hit 70 years old my goal is to eat a daily slice of warm pumpkin pie until my last day. With real whipped cream too. #grandmagoals

As you may or may not know, I had the BEST weekend ever with all of my bridesmaids for my bachelorette party in Scottsdale, AZ. It was such a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend full of amazing conversations, girl time, hiking, tacos, margaritas, guac + all the chips. I swear to you, my belly needs a break from tequila for a while.

Just keepin’ it real.

MY GOODNESS. I’ve been wanting to write to you forever. And so here we are. Back to the ever fabulous, always changing Wellness Wednesday.

Let’s take a flashback to 2012/2013/2014 when I wasn’t the woman I am today. When I was trapped inside a shell of self doubt, control, grief and the constant need for perfectionism. Back to when I regretfully had no idea what a healthy relationship with my body or mind meant when it came to food. I lived and died by my next meal. Always thinking and contemplating what I’d have next. Planning ever so wisely so I could make sure to never surpass my caloric goals for the day. It’s sad, but a truth. My own truth and one that will forever be included in the story of my life.

Enchilada turkey meatloaf stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese and jalapenos to make this a deliciously spicy and FUN dinner idea!

As I was photographing this meatloaf, I thought to myself how difficult it was to actually make meatloaf look delicious. Then again I thought, maybe a saucy photos are the way to do it. Saucy photos are popular on Pinterest so I’ve concluded that people must love them.

Or at least that’s what I told myself when I photographed this recipe anyway. Heh.

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins made a little bit healthier. You’ll love these satisfying muffins for a snack — freezer friendly and great for kids

Hello hello! Coming to you with a recipe for pumpkin muffins + weekend favorites and a few wedding updates in between.

I just got back in Chicago after picking up my beautiful wedding dress at A&Be bridal in chilly Minneapolis. Every time I’m in Minnesota, I’m reminded of home, where I grew up near the lakes, and the niceness of the people. Oddly this time, I felt myself missing the beautiful trees and admiring the cozy neighborhoods lined with green grass. It’s always a good feeling to be home every now and then.
