A Million Thanks + Celebration

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the notes, comments, and emails! Every single one has brought a smile to my face, and I can’t thank YOU all enough for helping me along by keeping me writing.

Who knows if this would have happened without this blog? As bloggers, we’re all already writers. But I don’t know if I would have traveled outside my comfort zone to do this if it wasn’t for my blog.

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

My posts have been so random lately! Not much in the way of daily eats, but that’s okay. I have some great posts that are backlogged, and I’m trying to get those out AND stay up to date with things going on.

And…I know I have not posted ONCE about Honduras yet. It’s coming. It is extremely tough to put that trip into words and to break it into sections that make sense. I’m working on it, but there’s a lot to get through to make those posts come together – pictures, memories, emotions. Not an easy task, but one that I’m excited to finish so I can tell you all about the trip.

Just in case you want to know, I am still taking pictures!


Overnight oats for breakfast with oats, almond milk, cinnamon, greek yogurt and local fruit! Blueberries, raspberries, peaches, walnuts.


I had a new quinoa recipe for lunch (recipe coming) and pizza for dinner.


I’d been waiting all day for this pizza! We heated it up in the oven to keep the crust crispy.


And some salad, for a little green today.

Did you know that college football starts in 2 days?!? I cannot even put into words how excited I am. It’s ridiculous. Just thinking about our game next week makes me get butterflies in my stomach – and all I do is watch!

I’m watching ESPN right now and cannot. wait. until. Thursday.

Am I crazy?

ALSO – today is my sister’s birthday!!! Happy Birthday Melissa! See you this weekend for lots of fun + football :)

AND it’s someone else’s birthday…Rose! :)


  1. I can’t believe the season’s already starting. First home game in two days!! Even though I missed the chance to buy student tickets so I wont be going to the games..it’s still amazing around campus :)

  2. So pumped for football!!!!

    Have a wonderful night! :)

  3. Belated congratulations m’dear…and I am excited for my first season as a true college football fan! :)

  4. So excited!! I really can’t believe football’s almost here, but I will be glued to the TV as soon as it starts up! :)

  5. I can imagine how difficult it would be to summarize your Honduras trip! Can’t wait to read about it though. And that quinoa recipe…

    Happy B-day to your sister!

  6. YEAH FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So pumped!

    I sat on the phone with Direct TV yesterday to make sure that I would have coverage way out here on the West coast of my Midwest team! SUCCESS FOR SURE!

    You are so lucky that your team gets ESPN and ESPNU coverage frequently. Saves on the football viewing stress!

    Every morning during Sports Center when they play the college game-day theme it fills my heart with joy! :)

  7. Aw, I just caught up on your blog and saw my name on this one. Thanks, darlin’!
