 Ugh.  Digestive drama.  That's what I refer to it as- DRAMA.  Gas, bloating, indigestion, cramping, fatigue- you name it.  Misery.

I have been working out more and more lately.  After a workout, I like to have a good snack and frankly, I like a nutritional drink but most mess my stomach up.

Why I take a daily probiotic

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.


Aaaahhhh.  As I have gotten older, my health has become a major priority in my life.  I am TRYING to eat better, stay more active and drink more water. 

I also like to add nutritional supplements to my diet.  

I already take a round of multivitamins, minerals and of course, vitamin C but I have forgotten about a healthier stomach.

Since Emma's injury, I have a lot of stress.  That stress has caused me some stomach issues and I have been learning to destress and meditate.  I have decided to add a probiotic to my routine to help support digestive balance!

This Philly Cheesesteak Macaroni & Cheese recipe is sponsored by Annie's Homegrown but as always, all my tasty opinions are mine!

I think this is a truth that is universally known- macaroni & cheese is the ultimate comfort food.  Pasta- check. Cheese- check. Warm- check.   Lately, I have been obsessed with making macaroni & cheese twists and this Philly Cheesesteak Macaroni & Cheese just may be the end all be all.

I mean, my green chile pork macaroni & cheese was bomb.

Chili mac is to die for.

Easy Ways to Declutter Your Wardrobe

Easy ways to declutter your wardrobe.  If you are anything like me, you love clothes and that can be a problem.  

Easy Ways to Declutter Your Wardrobe

I love clothes.  So much so, that I tend to hoard them.  *clears throat*  That means my small closet is overflowing.  It's out of control.  What makes it even more difficult is that we don't really have seasons here in Phoenix.  I mean, we DO but nothing really extreme except the super hot summers and that means you can wear most everything all year.  

I have been trying to move to a much more minimalist life and have been decluttering (hence the slowing down on blogging).  I recently downsized books (oh my heart!!!) and now, am focusing on clothing.

#FightBackBetter: How to help someone fighting against breast cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and are you looking for ways to #FightBackBetter or  How to help someone fighting against breast cancer? I am sharing some tips on how to help someone who is fighting the battle against breast cancer! 

#FightBackBetter: How to help someone fighting against breast cancer

This post is partnered with al fresco gourmet chicken but I was not compensated financially for this post and my desire to support breast cancer patients is on my own. Any way to support a great cause, I am always here for it! 

October is my favorite month- Halloween, fall, pumpkins, sweater weather and the changing of leaves.  As the author of the Anne of Green Gables series, L.M. Montgomery, wrote "

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”   October is also a great month when it comes to awareness- there are multiple important causes that are being commemorated this month such as "Breast Cancer Awareness", "Down Syndrome Awareness", "National Bullying Awareness", "Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness" and many more!  October is an important month in so many ways. 

Recently, several women I know, respect and love dearly have been diagnosed with breast cancer.  It's a devastating diagnosis and even more so as all of these women are young- under 40.  My aunt lose her battle in 2013.  A dear friend of mine lost her battle at the age of 38.
