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”

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”

Write—A—Ween

Hey folks! Fall is starting to wither a little bit here—we’re already getting calls for snow but right now it’s misty and dreary. Perfect Halloween weather—or perfect Halloween writing weather. So, I’m starting my own writing prompt for the two weeks leading up to Halloween. #writeaween

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!”

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”
