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: 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”

Flashback Friday: Agate Fossil Beds National National Monument, August 2015

I had never heard of this place. Scottsbluff— Chimney Rock, learned about them in 5th grade but it wasn’t until I headed to Nebraska in 2014 I heard about Agate. Even then I didn’t make it over there… But I planned time to go the next year. A co-worker and I both had a dayContinue reading “Flashback Friday: Agate Fossil Beds National National Monument, August 2015”

Snow Squall… WTF?

We had a snowsquall on December 15– what the heck is a snowsquall you ask? A cold, miserable whiteout with a time limit. Howling wind, blowing snow, and a massive temperature change. It went from almost 48 degrees down to 25 degrees. While it was a “cool” experience it made me long for warmer days.Continue reading “Snow Squall… WTF?”

Snow Days and Sled Fails

Well…I jinxed myself. I shouldn’t have made a crack about the cold on Monday. Now, I have snow. It’s up to my shins and if there’s a drift my corgi, Freya, becomes submerged. I don’t dislike snow. I actually really love it and it makes me happy. Until I have to shovel the wet heavyContinue reading “Snow Days and Sled Fails”

Wannabe on the Trail: Side Hustles & Small Business

Hey all! I don’t know if it’s the millennial mindset or just the ADHD talking but I keep trying to find new ways to make my hobbies pay for themselves. I like hiking and thought taking photos and writing about it would be fun. Probably not a high paying niche but fun. Once I startedContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Side Hustles & Small Business”

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”

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”

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…”

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”
