Soooooooooooo. Have you watched this lovely documentary on Netflix called “What The Health”? No? Good. Don’t. Unless, you’re ok with making lifestyle changes. And if you have watched it, and didn’t get remotely spooked, then you’ll have no idea where I’m coming from. It’s been relatively controversial, and I’m not one to fall into a fad or anything, but substantial data and decent logic, will make me question things for sure. I won’t go into deets, but this documentary basically conveys the message that meat isn’t good for you. Now, I’m a pretty big omnivore. I love my leafy greens and veggies, but am a huge fan of a good steak/fish/goat/lamb/mussels/etc. I love it all…. But the data was a little too convincing. So convincing, that I’m trying that vegan life for a little while to see if I can actually see a difference in my health. 

These past few days, all my meals have been vegan. I specifically even bought condiments and switched out lots of dairy products to make sure I was sticking to being vegan. It hasn’t been easy, but I don’t miss the meat and everything tastes amazing! So, I can’t really complain….yet. And yes, the hubs is on board for the most part. If he’s eating at home, he’ll eat whatever I make because his theory is “if you’re (me) doing something that is benefitting our bodies, I can’t really complain!”. I love him for that btw!

I’m sure what you’re wondering what Raksha Bandhan is if you’re not Indian or are familiar with it. Well let’s talk about pronunciation real quick before we move further: Ruck-sha Bun-Dhunn or the easier version of course is just calling it Rakhi! =)

I actually never got to do this as a kid since I didn’t have any brothers or any close cousins that were boys. But the tradition is absolutely sweet and I’m so glad I get to see it happen with my two babies.

This is not sponsored in any way. Just a cool experience, and I wanted to share my feelings and opinions!

My sister was here a couple of weeks ago and she’s been needing new glasses, so we decided to hit up Warby Parker. If you don’t know who or what this is, I highly recommend them after watching my sister’s experience first hand.

Me. All types of happy. Cuz pizza and carbs and cheese…and need I go on? 

Sooooo it’s Tuesday. And for some odd reason, I feel like it should already be Thursday…although I’m probably wishing that because my sister is coming into town that day and I’m just so dang excited!! 

Nonetheless, not sure if you caught my last coffee chat where I talk about trying out new restaurants, but for lunch today, we ventured out to a new pizza spot out in Round Rock (Austin, TX). People have been raving about this place and it was time to give it a go! My whole 30 diet went out the window, buttttt pizza ya know. #worthit

Hey hey hey! It’s the weekend and who isn’t happy about that, am I right?  It’s been crazy town over here these last couple of months as I’ve been trying to get back into the corporate world, and it’s actually happening! EEEEEEK! I start work in a few weeks, and I’m nervous excited! However, I will say shopping for clothes are that office appropriate has been really fun, since I basically have been out of the workforce for nearly 4 years, and have been donning the #momwardrobe errday. Everything I owned was completely out of style or didn’t fit me any longer. Yikes…so, hello new clothes!

Anywhooooooo, because I’ve been so out of the loop, figured I’d do a little update and what’s currently going on around here…
