The classic chili con carne - but our favorite twist is using chunks of beef, rather than ground beef. Put it all in a slow cooker, and the beef just falls to pieces in your mouth. Combine it with fries (mmm, love fries!) or with cornbread (see previous post) but just make it and enjoy! We did this recently for some very special dinner guests and it was enjoyed whole-heartedly by all! . . My original recipe at cookathome.info (search for 'slow cooker chili' or go through the temporary link in my profile) includes beans and a few other ingredients, but you can make this #whole30compliant by skipping the beans, making your own seasoning (search for 'taco seasoning' at cookathome.info) and combining it with some greens and other veggies. The sky is the limit! . . What's your favorite food to cook for dinner guests? . . #dairyfree #glutenfree #eeeeeats #thekitchn #bgbcommunity #foodgawker #foodandwine #eatingfortheinsta #bhgfood #utahblogger #foodblogeats #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #huffposttaste #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #getinmybelly #goodeats #cookathome #dairyfreenoms #wholesomeyum #feedmeglutenfree #AllThingsGF #chiliconcarne #beef #slowcooker #whole30 #lifeafterwhole30

We just can't stay inside lately, the weather is just toooooo perfect || The babies were going crazy after we got home from my brothers graduation so I just started pushing the babies around and they calmed right down. Bubba started smiling ear to ear. Indie was giggling and loving running around throwing rocks and doing some sort of skip/hop πŸ˜‚ || what are your favorite spring must dos with those babies!?

R E A L I T Y // I suspect that dreams are an integral part of existence, with far more use for us than we've made of them... The fine line between the dream state and reality is at time, for me, quite grey.

The recipe I promised for this cinnamon French toast is on the blog now. It uses Kneaders chunky cinnamon bread. And if you're lucky enough that your location has some Saturday night after 8 you can get it half off and make it for Sunday breakfast when you're craving Kneaders' French toast. I can't wait to make it again! #frenchtoast #breakfast #Kneaders
Pretty much have spent the day agonizing over sharing three facts about myself. But here goes nothing! 1. I am a huge dork. Like straight up, I'm a goofball. Most of the time I'm too hyper to remember what I did as a dork. 2. There is a 99% chance I'm planning a trip somewhere at all times. Even if the trip isn't happening for 8 months. I'm still planning and looking for it. 3. I LOVE writing. I majored in history because I would rather write a 20 page paper, than do a single math problem. Let me know below something unique about you! β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #jkinstachallenge #blogger #bloggerlife #flashesofdelight #happyday #lifestyleblogger #liveauthentic #lovelyday #persuepretty #soloverly #thatsdarling #theeverydayproject #thehappynow #utahblogger

As I'm sitting here on my hotel bed trying to think of a witty caption I decide I don't have the energy for it.😞This is my sixth night in seven days away from my family. I'm tired, exhausted, burnout...you name it. I think so many of us get on Insta and share our happy stories but not always our reality. This is my reality...at least today. I hesitate to share this on my Insta, but it's not always rainbows 🌈 and butterflies πŸ¦‹All I can hope for is a better day tomorrow. It will be a better day as I'll be back home with my loves and will be taking a much needed long weekend from there. Thank you for following my Insta, this is my outlet...my therapy, I appreciate your support. Cheers to better days!πŸ’œ #todaysreality #itwillbeokay #shouldhavehadaglassofwine #ootd #wiw #rebeccaminkoff #nordstrom #marcfisher #nordstromrack #hautelook

My sweet guy is three today!πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚ . . I don't share this a lot but Hudson spent 9 days in the NICU when he was born. Being a new mom was hard enough, but having a baby in the NICU was almost more than my heart could take. Thankfully modern medicine saved his little life, but I can't think about his birth without thinking about those long days wondering if my kiddo was going to make it. . . Here we are three years later and he is such a smart, handsome, polite little guy. I love him so much and had so much fun spending the day celebrating him. Happy Birthday to my Hudson! #hudsonforest
You must never give in to despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength ~ Uncle Iroh Once again, I'm just a girl in the kitchen, saddened that a good meal and a loving conversation can't prevent the world's injustices. I hope you can smile and love and be fair and kind to others, but if you're finding it hard right now, I understand. Together we hurt, but together we will heal.
Hasta la victoria siempre #Cuba #CheGuevara

Ugh I can't handle how gorgeous this bouquet is that my sweet, hubby sent me! It's been a rough start to our week. But it's definitely turned out to be amazing. And now I get to go meet my girlfriends for dinner! Love all my friends + family πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—
I'd do anything to live near a California beach, but a Utah beach will do for now😝 #summergirl #pickettpretty And everyone go check out @kelzphotography she is amazing!!β™₯️
4 Things I've Learned While Teaching Kindergarten: 1. You can look 18, but still be called "grandma" multiple times a day! 2. You can get multiple marriage proposals in one year and devastated looks when you tell them you are already married! 3. 5 year olds think your idea of "fun" is playing on the playground with your husband on the weekends! 4. A good bag can be a teacher's best friend! This bag from @kikiludesigns is by far the best teacher item I've found! Check out my blog to see my full review and to get a look at all my teacher essentials! {link in my bio} #trendyteachertuesday

Here it is, a ‼️STRETCHING VIDEO‼️These are some of my favorite stretches and they focus on neck/shoulders and hip flexors/quads/hamstrings. πŸ’πŸΌThese stretches are helpful to do anytime, but especially at the end of a long day of sitting at a desk. πŸ’Ό /// I can’t stress enough how important it is to stretch and the benefits you get from taking just 5 minutes a day to loosen up your muscles and take a quiet moment to show your body some love.πŸŽ‰β€οΈπŸšΆπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ /// This is a stretch routine I did yesterday morning. I typically try to hold each stretch for about 60-100 seconds. Focus on breathing and relaxing- it’s easy for your body to freak out and tighten up when you stretch, but find it’s happy place and just relax. πŸ’†πŸΌβ€οΈ /// #stretching #stretchvideo #treatyoself #loveyourbody #wellness #healthylifestyle #fitnessvideo #fitnessblogger #utahblogger #hipstretch #neckandshoulders #swoleandflexy #instahealth #everyday #takecareofyourself #postworkoutfeels #postworkout #love #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdaynight

Truth: I've been feeling a little uninspired lately when it comes to cooking. Not for any other reason than I've just had a lot going on recently (all wonderful things), but as my action-oriented activity goes up my creativity tends to go down. That being said, when I saw these Cinnamon Roll Bliss Balls up on @thetoastedpinenut page, I felt ALL the excited feels and got my ass back in the kitchen. Yes, since you asked, they are absolutely as tasty and yummy as they look AND are made with gut-healthy #collagen. Head over to her page or blog to find the recipe and enjoy!!
Summer is finally here and I'm VERY excited about it. Also I might have just consumed half a bag of sour cream and onion Lays. Oops.
Style @drivenbylove_ & I did for a collaboration with @chadbfacesphoto @hmxhailey @kylelovestori_. Looking forward to getting the pics.
hello, it's me, and my face - again. day two of the #jkinstachallenge! so here's three facts: 1. I love Boston. I grew up there and love everything about it! 2. I'm kind of the only person in my family who would love to live in the middle of the city, I like being around all the hustle and bustle! 3. I'm LDS! Or a Mormon, but LDS is the correct term. You've definitely heard of us if you experienced the 2012 election and we're not as weird as you think! Quick question, what's your pet peeve? leave yours below :)

No cavities! First trip to the dentist was a success. I loved how fast it was and how cheery and friendly everyone was. This guy loved that he got to wear a silly hat, get cool sunglasses when he said the lights were kind of bright, and especially that he got to get a super hero cape and choose a toy. Doesn't get better than that for him πŸ˜‚ He might want to go to the dentist all the time now. Thanks Burg Children's Dentistry for an awesome visit. #BCDkids #lfthx #ad
I've been sitting here for a hot minute trying to figure out what to say. All the words are floating in my head but I cannot pull them down into a coherent sequence. Two years ago today on a cloudy beautiful day I said "I do" to the raddest guy. ✨ The last couple of months have been a such a beautiful resurgence of love & appreciation for him & my heart can hardly stand it.
