A Little Love Note to Kyle…

Kyle, I love you.

You truly (truly!) are the most loving, patient, and kind man. From traveling the world together to waking up and sippin’ coffee by your side in the morning, life with you is a little piece of heaven.

No one is perfect, but you sure do come as close as it gets.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Thinking Out Loud #4

Hey guys and happy Thursday! I’m jumping on the TOL bandwagon this week to share some random happenings. I always want to share more personal things, but (to be honest), our lives aren’t exciting enough to dedicate multiple posts a week to 😂. It’s easier to just chunk a whole lot of little things together in a Thinking Out Loud post! As always, a big thanks to Amanda for hosting!

So let’s dive right in with a little life recap!

We’ve been house shopping

Kyle and I have been on the lookout for potential homes these last few months. Our apartment lease is up in early April and we most likely will not be renewing it. We’ll be traveling in Europe from the end of April through early March, so we’re hoping to either find a home we love, or move back in with our parents for a few months until we find the perfect match. I’m not going to lie, the SoCal housing market is pretty ridiculous in terms of cost and what you get for your money, but we are SO excited!

Crispy Green Beans with Garlic Dipping Sauce

Crispy Green Beans with Garlic Dipping Sauce- a healthy and addictive snack!

For all you veggie haters/dislikers out there, this one is for you!

I remember when I was younger, my mom used to make boiled brussels sprouts and they were just the worst thing (no offense, mom). Bitter, mushy, and soul-sucking. While that last one might be an exaggeration, I can distinctly remember wondering to myself why anyone would choose to have them as a side dish with dinner. Why ruin a perfectly good meal of pot roast and potatoes?!

Fast forward a good number of years and my thinking/cooking methods have evolved. I’ve learned the magic that is roasting veggies and it has changed the way I feel about eating vegetable for the better! While boiling them (in my opinion) makes them taste even worse, roasting brings out the natural sweetness/tastes of vegetables and makes them so much more delicious. Along with that, instead of a mushy grossness, you get a perfect crispness!…

4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Oat Bars

4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Oat Bars- easy, delicious, and healthier!

Can I have a heck YES for 4 ingredient recipes? This is the holy grail when it comes to a dessert/breakfast/snack bar that’s beyond easy, delicious, and healthier!

I’m the kind of gal that always needs to end my day with something sweet. The day doesn’t feel complete until I’ve had a little candy or chocolate to top things off! These bars satisfy that craving perfectly and are healthier than my normal dessert choices ;). Plus, they taste AMAZING! …
