Friday Recommendations

I’m going to be honest, I’m more interested in eating dirty than clean eating. My best friend is a health nut. She has become a part time fitness coach and knows that I want to be healthy but I struggle to stay on track with my schedule and general lack of motivation. So I looked into healthy crock pot recipes that I can throw before I leave for work, and will be ready when I get home. Here is a…

Family Vacation in the Outer Banks

I mistakenly agreed to go on a family vacation this year. Don’t get me wrong I adore my family and really and truly wanted a vacation, but in hindsight it was a truly irresponsible thing to do. I am studying to take the bar exam currently and I certainly slacked off during my week long trip to the beach. I’m a rather pale person so I spent significant portions in the house, under the gazebo, and under a beach tent…
