Mahi Mahi Chili 30 Minutes or Less

Mahi Mahi Chili 30 Minutes or Less

I am a fish fan. My husband isn’t. This is a point of contention for me, but you can’t make someone like a food, or can you? David actually enjoys this Mahi Mahi recipe. He has even been packing in his lunch box as a mason jar salad (just like me). I wanted to share this super simple recipe with you because it is a weekly staple in our house now. I make it up on Sundays and eat it…

LACK-HACK – Perfect Mother’s or Father’s Day Gift

LACK-HACK – Perfect Mother’s or Father’s Day Gift

My parents are the kind of people who have everything.  They are retired, they spend most of their time at the beach, and they don’t ever “need” anything, but they love toys. I made some photo coasters for them a few years ago, and my dad mentioned wanting to do a photo table.  I decided to make this for him for father’s day this year (Dad, if you’re reading this, STOP!!!)   This project was pretty simple, just some basic…

Pine Mountain Hike – West Loop Trail and David G. Archer Overlook

Pine Mountain Hike – West Loop Trail and David G. Archer Overlook

I want to start this off by saying that Pine Mountain is where I started to fall for David. He took me here on our first date. We ended up doing both loops that day because I wanted to spend as much time with him as I could. It was a great way to begin our relationship and we try to do the hike at least once a year.

Nutribullet vs. Vitamix

Nutribullet vs. Vitamix

If you are anything like me, then I am sure you overthink everything you buy. I did this for about a year before buying a Vitamix, and let me tell you, it was worth every penny. It replaces the need for a food processor, and proudly sits on your counter as the best damn blender you’ll ever own. David and I use it all the time, and have for years. We make post-hike smoothies, and we used to make seriously…

Sawnee Mountain Hike – Indian Seats Trail and Overlook

Sawnee Mountain Hike – Indian Seats Trail and Overlook

Nestled between the Appalachian Trail and Atlanta, Sawnee Mountain Preserve is a perfect hike for beginners, people with large groups looking for a pretty view, or families with children or older people. We reached the top and back in about 45 minutes, and even in the summer Georgia heat, we weren’t very sweaty. Indian Seats trail is all dirt, with a lot of roots, but it also has plenty of shade. Indian Seats Trail Stats Length 3.5 Miles Elevation Gain…

Sugarmill Ruins Travel Park

Sugarmill Ruins Travel Park

We store our camper at Sugar Mill Ruins Travel Park in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. We absolutely LOVE this park. Their sites are all tree-covered, spacious, and clean. The campground offers a private fishing lake, a nice pool, tiki bar, and daily events like aerobics or family-movies by the pool.  The bathrooms are clean, and there are multiple showers. Their drink prices are $1.25 for wine or draft beer at the tiki bar, which is unbeatable. They also have ice…

Camper for a Year

Camper for a Year

It’s a mystery to me We have a greed with which we have agreed And you think you have to want more than you need Until you have it all, you won’t be free -Eddie Vedder In January, my fiance and I decided to stop drinking.  Not because we necessarily had a problem with it, or anything like that, we just decided that it was inhibiting us from doing the things we love.  As we are getting older, we are…

Stop shampooing your hair!

Stop shampooing your hair!

Today I want to share with you how I stopped shampooing my hair daily. I know this may sound disgusting (right up there with the day I stopped wearing make up).  I have always had thin hair.  I washed it daily, and I never thought anything of it.  Since I have greatly reduced the shampooing of my hair, I have noticed that it has gotten a little thicker, much healthier, and that my skin problems around my neckline are slowly…

Mount Yonah | Cleveland, Georgia

Mount Yonah | Cleveland, Georgia

Last weekend David and I went to Mount Yonah (in Cleveland, GA) with some friends.  We’ve hiked it several times, but I just wanted to post about it today because it was incredible! The leaves were just starting to come out, and the weather was perfect.  It was one of those hikes where climbing off the mountain is the last possible thing you would ever want to do, that is until your stomach starts growling to tell you that it…
