Wannabe on the Trail: Germ Theory…

It’s not what you think. Well, it kind of is… To begin, germ theory according to Britannia.com is, “germ theory, in medicine, the theory that certain diseases are caused by the invasion of the body by microorganisms, organisms too small to be seen except through a microscope.” It’s pretty spot on if you ask me.Continue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Germ Theory…”

Wannabe on the Trail: SAD, Sick, and on the Mend

I don’t really have a lot to say but I figured I better do an update! Coivd sucked– I’m glad I had the vaccine. I did better than my husband (unvaxxed) but it still sucked. I still feel exhausted from it. However, I’m doing better and starting to get active again. It’s slow going though–Continue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: SAD, Sick, and on the Mend”

Wannabe on the Trail: Home Sick

I’m not homesick, I’m literally home sick. I’m getting a Covid test tomorrow but the last couple of days have been rough. Being home sick, normally means I’m comatose on the couch. Not this time! Now that I’m a mother— I don’t get that option. He’s also running a fever so he’s home with me.Continue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Home Sick”

Return to Girl, Take a Hike

I really want to go hike on a beach somewhere. It’s been an insane week already. It’s also starting to get cold. I don’t like it. Well, I do but it’s a weird toxic love hate relationship with cold weather. The snow makes it so pretty. Luckily, we only had a little light dusting ofContinue reading “Return to Girl, Take a Hike”

Wannabe on the Trail: Musings on Timeshares

*** I haven’t got any cool photos for this post so I made memes… So… on that last trip I took, that one to Branson, we went because of a timeshare offer. Yeah, yeah, I know… We were walking through a popular outdoor store and Wade never learned to avoid sales desk people and interacted.Continue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Musings on Timeshares”

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)”

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…”

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!!!!”

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”

… Worn out…

Have you ever been exhausted? Not just tired, not just blah. But totally exhausted to the point that you just don’t want to get out of bed? That’s the point I hit about two months ago. I’m finally back to just being tired and I’m slowly working towards being excited about things again. I’ve returnedContinue reading “… Worn out…”
