Hey guys! I know I posted that I was on vacation & taking a break from blogging this week but I wanted to get on here and send you all to Emily’s blog – Ember Grey! Today I will be guest posting on her blog where I will be sharing about the one thing that inspires me & has changed me for the better – MY CHILDREN. I love Emily’s blog so I am so excited to be featured on there today!

And if you are coming from Emily’s blog – HELLO! – thank you so much for stopping by! Here are some more pictures from a little photoshoot we went on to take the pictures just for the one thing post. I told my sister I wanted some pictures of me and the babies so we went driving out in the middle of nowhere and found an old abandoned church beside this beautiful hay field. It was perfect.


So Gary & I are last minute people. We make plans & decided to go on a trip to Ibiza, which is why there hasn’t been a post on here in the past couple of days! Gary had to go to a work conference in New Hampshire but had to stop in NY first. My family lives right outside of NY so Gary dropped us off on his way! So we’ve been hanging out with my family this week, and we went online looking at a site that has some great faux leather beds on sale now. I usually do my posts the same day so I haven’t had time to post anything this week. I have a post scheduled to go up tomorrow but until then I won’t be posting until next week! Hope you all are having a great week!


I am currently doing another round of the 21 Day Fix which not only focuses on 30 minute daily work outs but also portion control and eating clean. Eating clean is a lifestyle change but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicious CLEAN treats! Most days in between meals I start to crave sweets and these apple cookies are delicious and fill me up. They are so easy to make that I usually just let Sophia make them after I cut the apple. I make mine with almond butter & dark chocolate chips but if you aren’t a fan of these you can add peanuts, coconut or even chocolate covered raisins (all of these 21 Day Fix approved).


  • 2-3 apples
  • almond butter
  • dark chocolate chips


001. thinly slice apples – i cut mine into chips by cutting apple in half, cutting core out & then slicing into round chips.
002. spread almond butter butter onto apple chips.
003. add chocolate chips (or whatever topping you’d like)
004. ENJOY!
