Time Flies When You’re (not) Having Fun

Open’s an eye and looks around– is summer over yet? Almost. Time officially got away from me. Most of that is due to taking on a temporary promotion at work and having more duties as assigned. It’s starting to slow done but the ride isn’t over yet. Other than job related training and a weekContinue reading “Time Flies When You’re (not) Having Fun”

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”

Wannabe on the Trail: Winter’s Here

Well, at least it’s not snowing…yet. Woke up to a -3 day. Not my favorite thing. But I need to get over it. I don’t want fall into the same patterns I do every winter were I binge watch stuff, or read, under a blanket and not go outside. I want to see if suckingContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Winter’s Here”

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”

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!”

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”

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!!!!”

Effigy Mounds, Happy Anniversary, Winter Begins…

Well folks, you’re getting a twofer! I meant to post this back in early December but… yeah… things happen. *looks skittishly at the date of last post and cringes… I’ve been very busy- I finally have my new boss in place but it’s a whirlwind of activity. We started planning for this year and likeContinue reading “Effigy Mounds, Happy Anniversary, Winter Begins…”

Rocky Mountains and Gallbladder Pains

Winter has hit Nebraska; a major winter storm blew through Saturday night. Today I spent most of the day washing laundry, catching up on emails, and finally sitting down to work on my blog. After a week of fun in the sun and a week of Thanksgiving joy, I’m ready to get back to myContinue reading “Rocky Mountains and Gallbladder Pains”

The Cowboy Trail

Hi all! It’s been another busy week here in Nebraska.  I had two fun days off; well except for the eye appointment I had. As I let all my Facebook friends know I had some trouble with my right eye. I apparently scratched it at some point. Did you know that the material in yourContinue reading “The Cowboy Trail”

Is it summer yet?

Sorry it’s been awhile folks. I’ve been drowning in Grad school, internships, work, and life in general. After some crazy weather and a blizzard in April, I’m finally out and about. It’s a glorious (late) spring edging into summer now. The prairie flowers are beginning to bud, the grass is growing, and the trees areContinue reading “Is it summer yet?”

Return to the Rim

Aggghhh! Time has gotten away from me; between the New Year, graduate school, and work I’ve been swamped. I feel so bad I haven’t posted the last installment of the Grand Canyon adventure! Here is the final part of the story… 6’ish… I wasn’t paying to much attention to time… Cold. Blissful cold. If youContinue reading “Return to the Rim”
