How Getting Rid of Cable Changed My Life

Hey friends!

Before making this seemingly drastic decision of getting rid of cable, my husband and I talked about it for quite some time.   The 500 channels that we were paying for were clearly not being utilized.  We spent most of our time in the evenings watching mind-numbing programs that were just on for background noise.  We enjoyed winding down with The Big Bang Theory, Family Guy [his fave] and the evening panel news discussions [mine].

2018 Goals

Hello dear friends,

Lots has happened since we last talked and I have some exciting news: I am expecting and am 22 weeks along! It has been quite the journey and I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for this blessing.  When I got pregnant, I got a bit stuck in not knowing how to address this big life change on social media. I decided to take a mini hiatus to clear my mind and [hopefully] figure it out.  And what better way to get back to our little space on the internet than with some dreamy 2018 goals?! [Preggo or not, this planning-loving, Type A gal likes to have a clear vision for the year ahead. 😉 You can check out my 2017 resolutions here.]

The Pros & Cons of Quitting Dairy

Hey y’all,

Hope your week is off to a great start! Apologies for my lack of post last week.  I was traveling for a conference that lasted three days (and where I got to speak!!), so I had to focus on the event, client work and two work dinners. But now, we’re back to regularly scheduled programming… 🙂

Today I want to talk about dairy: the good, the bad and the ugly.  My family and friends know that I gave up dairy this January. So it’s been about ten months that I’ve been dairy-free and I wanted to share my journey with you.  If you’re considering making the move, hopefully this post helps you weigh the pros and cons.  [Also, this is my experience and what has personally worked for me.  Everyone is different and I encourage you to find what works for you!]

My Morning Routine to Increase Productivity

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Hopefully Monday wasn’t too rough and you’re now in the flow of a wonderful new week! Over the last couple of months I have been focusing on how to maximize my productivity throughout the day.  It’s a journey and I do not have it all figured out yet.  But I have learned several tricks [like my sleeping hack I blogged about last week] that really help, and one of them is having a solid morning routine.

MORNING ROUTINE

Here’s my schedule starting from the minute that I wake up:
