Focus? What’s that? (mini-post)

I got nothing. It’s been a trip that’s for sure. I’d like to say I was just so busy with family, work, and grad school again but it wasn’t that. I just lost focus. I lost motivation. I lost the concept of time. Actually, what day is it? I jest, but there were a fewContinue reading “Focus? What’s that? (mini-post)”

Back and Ready for it!

It’s been a while! Those of you that follow me on Instagram and Facebook probably know that I’ve been struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety. In great news, I’m finally coming out of the fog and starting to do the things I enjoyed. Here’s to new content, updates, and maybe some new videos and photosContinue reading “Back and Ready for it!”

It’s been a while…

Hi all, I fell off the map. Sorry about that. Things got a little hectic again. Time got away from me and my blogging plans went off the rails. I had a major round with seasonal affective disorder again. Adding to it was anxiety and stress caused by postpartum issues, plus COVID-19 wasn’t helping myContinue reading “It’s been a while…”

Hayduke Blues

*I wrote this two weeks ago and forgot about it… sleep deprivation strikes again… Hi all! It’s been a busy month and a half again! The baby has me in a foggy addled state. We’ve been getting outside on the nicer days but between my recovery from the c-section and Princesses recovery I haven’t feltContinue reading “Hayduke Blues”

Adventures in Motherhood

Hi all… It’s been a minute. I need coffee, a shower, and a nap… the order doesn’t matter. Once again the blog got neglected but this time I have a good reason… a tiny almost ten pound reason. Hunter takes up a lot of my day- then there are the naps. Plus, I wanted toContinue reading “Adventures in Motherhood”

Feeling Lazy at Week 37…

Hi all, I’ve been busy with grad school (again), “helping” Wade get the nursery done, and finishing up some stuff for work before I go on maternity leave. I haven’t gotten out an explored, nor have I done any book reviews. I’m hoping to change that soon… I’m to the point in pregnancy where IContinue reading “Feeling Lazy at Week 37…”

Book Review: Dances with Marmots…

Here goes the first ever book review! I decided to start with the book I just finished; Dances with Marmots: A Pacific Crest Trail Adventure by George Spearing. “From Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail” “4300 km, 5 months and a lifetime of unforgettable memories…” For my non-imperial friends, 4300 km is roughlyContinue reading “Book Review: Dances with Marmots…”

Baby Blues and Hiking Boots

I need bigger hiking boots…and flip flops…maybe I’ll just go barefoot. My feet are swelling and right now shoes of any kind are the bane of my existence right now. Plus, fun fact a lot of women that have babies wind up moving up a shoe size- so, I might need to find bigger hikingContinue reading “Baby Blues and Hiking Boots”

Wandering Sisters!

This weekend wasn’t long enough. For a couple reasons. One, my sister, P.J. flew up for the weekend- I wish I could have kidnapped her and kept her up here for a few more days… or a month…or a year… Two, we had to pack a lot of stuff into mainly one day… I needContinue reading “Wandering Sisters!”

Best Laid Plans

Well… That didn’t go as planned. Also short boring post this week. The doctor appointment went well but we didn’t leave as early as we would have liked going to North Platte and then we didn’t leave North Platte until almost six and I had a dog that practically ran me over to get outsideContinue reading “Best Laid Plans”

Bored…I’m Bored!!!!

Short post this week, sorry about that. Yeah…after that nine-day work week my weekend consisted of me doing laundry (only productive thing I did) and eating Oreos on the couch… Oh, and walking the dog. I’m turning into a boring person. It’s just not the same as going somewhere for a hike. However, I didContinue reading “Bored…I’m Bored!!!!”

Baby Brain and Long Work Week

Sigh… This was the week I had my days off moved around. I’m working a nine day stretch and other than walking the dog I haven’t been doing much… I’m on day 7. So, I’m not sure if my brain is fuzzy because of baby brain or the long work week… But on the coolContinue reading “Baby Brain and Long Work Week”

Day Hikes and Baby Wipes

After the “big” trip to Wildcat Hills… if you can call two days a big trip. It was back to the normal day to day show; with a few highlights! The baby shower was a blast! The theme was on point for me- camping/outdoors stuff! I loved the snack table and there was some adorableContinue reading “Day Hikes and Baby Wipes”

A Jaunt at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area

“Nebraska: Honestly, it’s not for everyone.” It’s a pun! Run! Wait…is it a pun? *shakes head in confusion, looks up puns, still unsure, continues to write anyways without finding out for sure if it is a pun* Honestly, Nebraska gets a bad rap. Before I came here for a job in 2014, I was oneContinue reading “A Jaunt at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area”
