Bikini & Figure Competitions: 4 Weeks Out

By Kate Horney So we are doing this competition thing! I’ve never done one. My husband hasn’t either. It’s a little bit about challenging ourselves with something new and a little bit about a fun shared interest (we tried doubles tennis and found out neither of us could play so we are kind of stuck with this 😉 ). As a new mom (my boy is almost 8 months, can you believe it?!) I am embracing motherh ...[Read More]

Santa Fe Chicken Soup

Santa Fe Chicken Soup

By Blair Lindler There is nothing quite like a quiet weekend around the house with my Man visiting to inspire me to get in the kitchen and try a new recipe or two! It seems like life doesn’t allow for many of these kinds of weekends, so I could not give up the opportunity. And I don’t think Daniel minded one bit either 🙂 It was a nice change from our usual (rut) of salad bars, steak houses, and eg ...[Read More]
