Wannabe on the Trail: Winter Hiking

Not going to lie I’m not big on winter hiking. I respect those that go out and do it– safely. However, after scrolling various social media channels there are a lot of folks that don’t. You can do it safely. Hike in pairs or have a detailed plan outlining your stops etc. left with aContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Winter Hiking”

Take a Hike

It’s National Take a Hike Day! And I had to work… and I’m taking a shift on the ambulance so I have to be ready to respond. So no hikes for me… Dammit. But if you have a chance, go take a hike! Well, because I didn’t plan this well we’re doing a #waybackwednesday post.Continue reading “Take a Hike”

Wannabe on the Trail: Influencing

I’ve been thinking a lot lately— inspired by a documentary. Imagine that. Anyways, I watched Fake Famous. It’s an interesting look at how we view influencing and a social experiment into how to become a mega influencer. I related the most with Chris but I don’t think I deserve to be famous in the sameContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Influencing”

Fast talking in Branson

Well… hiking around Table Rock didn’t happen. Combination of limited free time, a coughing cranky baby, and coughing cranky parents— it’s not Delta either. Little man picked up a cold from daycare and decided to share the wealth. We masked up when needed which in Branson wasn’t normal— however, nobody commented when Wade starting coughing.Continue reading “Fast talking in Branson”

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!”
