    Yesterday’s adventures including paddleboarding! But first, breakfast! Breakfast All this talk about two-ingredient pancakes, I decided to make one myself for breakfast. I topped mine with fresh blueberries and a bunch of scoops of almond butter, but only one (of the many) is pictured. The reason I don’t snap pics of those additional spoonfuls of nut butter is because my […]

    Guess who took their very first yoga class yesterday! Mal has talked about trying yoga for years now, but ever since he started Crossfit, he’s actually talked about it more (since mobility is key to CrossFit), so he finally bit the bullet and did some yoga yesterday morning. Breakfast Before yoga, I ate a sliced banana […]

    Yesterday was a super active day filled with sun, fun, biking, and hiking around Central Oregon. After breakfast, Mal and I, his parents, and Mal’s dad’s cousin went for a 40-minute bike ride around Black Butte Ranch. There are miles and miles of paved bike paths and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking, so it was […]

After the past few days (travel, Reebok event, travel, HLS cocktail party, Whole9 seminar, travel), I really needed it! The house where we are staying this week is so adorable—very rustic! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was […]

    I really enjoyed spending some quality time with Mal’s grandma. We mostly laid low and caught up, so there were lots of laughs and reminiscing over the past few days. I loved listening to Grandma share her stories from the past, especially those about my husband as a little kid. It sounded like he was quite a handful! […]

    Later today, Mal and I are off to Oregon to visit his grandmother for a few days. My sister-in-law and her boyfriend are coming down from Seattle to join us, so we’re going to spend some quality family time together. (We may or may not have plans to cook Grandma’s fried chicken! Yessss! ) Mal and […]
