Savoring Springtime Suppers


The first few days of Spring have been all about savoring. We had my father in law in town from New Zealand and soaked up every minute of family time we could. No agenda. No rush. No plan. No worries. That’s the one of the many things I really enjoy about these Crazy Cotters. There will never be a plan. There will never be  a “rush” of the day. We spent hours around … [Read more...]

Udis Glutenfree Dinner and a Sneak Peek of new Products


I didn’t work this weekend. You see, I’ve been working most weekends for a while now, so this weekend I decided to take a break. In fact, I did not roll one ball. I mean Healthy Bite. I was what you call a "weekender". Which felt odd, but good. Friday night we took advantage of a dinner invite! I tried my best to dress up my Target attire. Head tilt helps, right? Jk. The … [Read more...]

Blendorama: The Thank YOU Card


I could sit here and write a recap of this past weekends BLEND RETREAT, but it might turn into a novel. And Monday’s are meant for novels. So instead I break it into pieces. Make just 2 pieces. Maybe three. Who knows. But today I want to say THANK YOU! Thank YOU Katie, Lindsay, Janeetha, and all of their family and friends who chipped into help prepare this amazing … [Read more...]

REFILL: Dark Chocolate MMAZ and MIMM


“The truth is, we aren't weary simply because our schedules are full. We are weary because our spirits are depleted. Within each one of us resides a soul that desperately needs renewal and restoration, something an overloaded schedule doesn't always allow.” Such truth, isn't it? That word....Depleted. How often do we find ourselves depleted at the end of the week and … [Read more...]

Glad it’s over: Race Weekend


You know when you have one of those weeks ( or days, hours, moments, etc.) when everything just seems to go wrong? It’s starts with one thing then just escalates from there? Yup, that was our past week and weekend. But in hindsight,  we laugh. Because although it didn’t go as planned, we still were safe, had fun, and were with each other. So… let me begin. 12 days ago (after … [Read more...]

Sherpa Scenes: Lavaman Triathlon


Such a great weekend! Being able to see my husband race, pain free and carefree, was my highlight. True JOY and PASSION! And despite having mechanical issues on the bike (had to stop and change out new wheels) he still finished strong. First out of the water and onto the bike then ran a 33 minute 10k. Not too bad considering he has been out of the racing scene for over a year. … [Read more...]

When things just Click


There are several things that just seem to “click” from time to time. I am sure you could agree. Like putting on new run or workout gear and feeling motivated. It just clicks in! Like putting dark chocolate almond butter in Strawberry Raspberry Hot Oats from LoveGrown Foods. It’s a clicking combo! Like making a strange but good recipe with the bare essentials left in … [Read more...]

Not your Average Pancake Breakfast


We're so out of our element this weekend. House sitting with 3 dogs and one kitten. Sleep? What's that? I am not sure i could handle motherhood right now. Kittens are whole new ball game, ha! Anyway, ever since Thanksgiving I've been on a pancake kick, actually I’ve been on a breakfast all day kick. But here's the thing, I'm not actually a good pancake maker. My FLIPS are … [Read more...]
