I never really had an opinion on pineapple until Nicole and I got matching pineapple tattoos while we were in Salt Lake City almost 3 years ago.

We’ve both been kind of obsessed with all things pineapple since then. We send each other pictures of anything pineapple we see in stores, anything pineapple we see on menus, anything and everything pineapple.

I got the idea of pineapple cheesecake bars stuck in my head weeks ago and bought all the ingredients and have been seriously procrastating.

I finally got them made this week and omg you guys, I’m so thrilled with the results and I can’t wait for you to make them.

We’ve reached the point of absolute end of the school year chaos.

Between end of year projects and exams and soccer and 7-on-7.

I’m done.

I’m ready to not have to worry about who needs a Benjamin Franklin costume and who needs a terrarium. I’m over stressing out about 2 soccer practices on the same night at the same time in 2 different cities.

I need a vacation.

I’m really relying heavily on no fuss 20 minute dinners like this Parmesan Pasta with Bacon and Peas.

You guys.

It almost feels like summer has arrived in Texas.

People have finally stopped asking if I’m cold in my Jeep. (I have a heater, y’all. And a boyfriend that makes me take his truck if it’s too cold. I’m fine.)

I mean, it’s still raining buckets 5 days a week but it’s finally warm enough for sundresses and sandals.

And I’m so ready for lake days and the waterpark and snow cones.

Hi guys, happy Wednesday!

How’s the week?

This is my favorite time of year weather wise (I say that literally every season but winter) because it’s warm enough to hike in shorts but you don’t sweat to death.

Plus, there aren’t mosquitos yet which makes soccer so much nicer.

And oh my gosh, we had a game last night that resulted in our coach being ejected for yelling at the referee. Apparently, you are not allowed to ask the ref if he plans on calling anything. 

It was a wild night in under 10 soccer.

Hi guys! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!

We don’t really do much for holidays since we’re so far away from family. It was just me and the boys so we took the dogs for a hike and had chicken nuggets for dinner. The usual.

But I have a really great recipe to share with you today!

I feel like pork chops are so underrated. You never really hear anyone talking about a great pork chop they had recently, you know?

But dang, I love a pork chop.
