Walk A Mile…to Fight Breast Cancer

Saturday hit 102° but that didn’t stop us!  “Walk A Mile in Their Shoes :: A High Heel Cancer Walk” was a local walk that took place at the same time as Avon’s 40 mile walk in Colorado this weekend and supported our very good friend Stephanie, who is fiercely fighting, and her family. Joel & I […]

Come Next Monday

Most days I don’t get a chance to leave the office and take a break. Lately, I’ve been packing my gym shoes, yoga pants and a tank top and scheduling in a break to get some fresh air.  Because y’all know I don’t really need to run out for fast food on my lunch.  What […]

Grilled Chicken Club Sandwiches

A chicken club sandwich alone is perfect for lunch, in my opinion. Add roasted garlic mayo & avocados and we’re taking this to a whole new level, friends. Acceptable to serve as a lunch AND a light dinner now in my book! A little prep work over the weekend and you’ll be able to throw […]

Besides, I signed up to […]

How did I get so lucky?  I just have to share this great picture of my brothers, my Joel and the twins. Although we’re missing a few key players, this is the best, eyes open, all smiling, no photo bombs picture of Joel & the Gang (like Kool & the Gang, get it? – I crack myself […]

Garlic Herb Butter

My garlic herb butter recipe is super simple and very versatile.  You can use this on just about anything; it also keeps in the fridge for about a week and in the freezer for up to 6 months! Wash and dry your herbs ~ today, I’m using rosemary, thyme and oregano beause they were on […]


There is nothing more perfect for a near 90° day than a kiddy pool. With a slide. And yes, that is a pile of dirt on my back patio.  Long story; let’s just save it for another post. Please pretend you never saw it. Our private pool’s slide is really an elephant who is spraying water […]

Lemon & Garlic Butter Salmon

Super easy weeknight salmon supper coming right up!  I just happened to find a filet of wild salmon in the freezer along with a stick of my trusty herb butter that I keep frozen and on hand. Digging through the pantry last night I pulled out garlic powder, lemon pepper and garlic & herb Mrs. […]
