Wannabe on the Trail: Inspired by LOTRs

Well, the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings inspired a lot of my life choices. “Speak friend and enter.” (If you get that reference comment the answer 😉 Not all those who wander are lost— Bilbo Baggins. My grandmother had a copy of the Hobbit on her bookshelf. Although, we didn’t get along— too muchContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Inspired by LOTRs”

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”

Wannabe on the Trail: Fitness

I have a hard time with my weight—especially after having my baby—who’s now a toddler. I’m thinking I might YouTube my weight loss journey. I also plan on posting updates on here as well. I’m going to start documenting my weight loss journey for two reasons—accountability and because I searched for someone like me andContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Fitness”

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”

Baby Wipes & Day Hikes: Big Spring Trail

I got to go home over Thanksgiving. I had a week to show my son around my hometown, hunt, spend time with family, and hike. Hunter has been there back in February but that was a quick trip and we didn’t do a lot of exploring. I should have planned two weeks. However, we gotContinue reading “Baby Wipes & Day Hikes: Big Spring Trail”

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”

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)”
