happy 1st blogiversary

One year ago today, I wrote my very first blog post!  It was a very short post, but it was the start…


Over the past year, I have had a great time blogging about everything from healthy eating to fitness apparel to my travels to my pregnancy.  It has been fun to get to know others in the blogging community who share similar interests.

I can’t wait to see what this next year holds. 🙂  Thank you for sticking with me and reading my blog!


The past week, my meals have been very simple.

There has been a lot of this…

A lot of these…

And, a lot of these pumpkin muffins that I burnt to a crisp. 🙂

I love fall!

We did whip up one delicious dinner, however.

Lentil Almond Stir-fry.

This is one of my favorite meals.  It is so simple, but the flavors work together so so well.  I would make it every week…it’s that good!

The only change that I made, was the addition of radishes from our CSA.

And, to make a simple recipe even simpler, I used the pre-cooked Black Beluga Lentils from Trader Joe’s.

Topped with the delicious mint and yogurt sauce…this was a hit!

And, a slice of warm bread on the side.  Perfect. 🙂


happy 2nd anniversary to us!

It is really hard to believe that two years have passed since our wedding day!  It seems so far away, yet so close at the same time.  So many wonderful things have happened in the past 2 years!

[I am taking a break from my vacation posts, to show you some pictures from our wedding day!  But, I have a lot more to fill you in on from vacation, so expect some more fun posts this week!]

September 13, 2008…2 years ago today

I was wearing a white dress…

…and carrying a bouquet.

I was getting ready with my mom and girlfriends.

Brant and I were seeing each other for the first time that day.

I was walking down the aisle with my dad to meet Brant and say “I-Do”!

We were celebrating as Mr. & Mrs.

We were attending our fabulous reception and realizing that all of the details turned out exactly how we had planned it (with a lot of help from our families!).

We had our closest family and friends by our side.

We were listening to our best friends toasting to us.

We were being goofy in our photo booth.

We were cutting our cake.

We were dancing our first dance as husband and wife (which we had practiced for many weeks!).

Most importantly…

We were spending time with each other.

We were spending time with all of the people we love.

We were having the time of our lives!

(and we were eating milk & cookies as a midnight snack!)

Our wedding day was the best day I could have hoped for!  I got to share the whole day with my best friend and everyone who loves and cares about us.  It could not have been any better!

Two years ago was long before I started writing this blog, so I hope you enjoyed this little recap of one of the best days of our lives!  Enjoy!
