Hi guys. I’m going to share my current obsession with you today.

You know how much I love all things Korean bbq, right?

Like, if I absolutely had to pick my favorite food – we’re talking last meal here – it would be Korean bbq.

I’ve even got my kids hooked on it which on one hand is good but on the other? I don’t wanna share my bulgogi fries with anyone! Not even my own children.

Hi guys.

Should we talk about resolutions? I love a new year and a fresh start and setting up intentions and goals. My current resolution list is just a bunch of tiny things that take up 3 pages of a google doc. They’re mostly like “Quit being super cheap and spend the $15 a month on Audible because you love listening to books while you cook”. Nothing life changing. Just little things that I hope will ultimately add up to make be a better person, better mom, better business woman over time.

I also tend to start eating healthier and cleaner but I think it’s more just getting back to normal. Because from Halloween to New Years, we all indulge a little more than usual, right? It’s less a resolution and more just getting back to what we were doing before we had bags and bags of tiny candy bars in our house at all times.  Click for the full recipe


Hummus Turkey Lettuce Wraps - easy, healthy, and delicious recipe! Make a big batch and have lunches all week!

Heeeey guys, how’s the week been?!

This is the last week of school for us so we’ve been crazy busy. Fat baby (who is neither fat nor a baby at this point) graduated from kindergarten:

And we’ve had award ceremonies and parties and everything else that comes with the end of the school year. Pretty excited to force my children to go for hikes a few times a week for the next 3 months.

Also? Stupid excited to not have to pack school lunches anymore. I am so over it at this point.

Thai Mushroom Lettuce Wraps - delicious meatless lettuce wraps! Healthy, quick, and cheap!

Heeeeey guys! Happy New Year! Hope you had a safe and fabulous weekend and are ready to get to work on those 2017 resolutions.

First, I wanted to say thanks to you guys for sticking around all these years. I appreciate every comment, every email, every single time you click on my site. I love you guys.

Anyway, I skipped the whole year in review post this year because this last year was somehow the best and worst year of my life and my blog was a total mess because of it. My highs were really high and my lows were really, really, really low and honestly, I don’t even know how I managed to blog most of the time.

I’m going into 2017 knowing it’ll be probably the hardest year of my life but also knowing that things will look a lot better on the other side of this mess.

So, again, thank you for everything.

Mu Shu Pork Lettuce Wraps - skip takeout and make this healthy homemade version! Pork and veggies in a delicious slightly sweet, slightly spicy sauce!

Hey guys!

First day of school here.

I’m a little excited.

And by a little, I mean I can barely contain myself.

I am counting down the minutes until I can drop them off.

I have a full day planned and there won’t be a single kid present.

This is the best day of my life.

We really lucked out this year and for the third year in a row, got a teacher that I absolutely adore. My middle kid had her twice in a row and now my youngest has her.
