January Recipe Recaps

Thursday, January 26, 2017

I have to start this out by saying I am so proud of myself for how much I have cooked this week. I have stayed on top of meal planning and making my grocery lists. My Simplified Planner has also helped because it always "asks" what you are heating for dinner. Eating at home has really helped us with both our budget and staying under my calorie count. It has also been so fun and I am definitely becoming more confident in the kitchen and a better cook! We had some really yummy meals this month!

Happy Wednesday! I love answering these simple prompts. They are so fun! My go-to question for anyone is always "what's your favorite...?" I think this is a form of that!

Life Lately

Thursday, January 19, 2017

Our life lately has been slow and full. After a lot of traveling and packed weekends from October through year-end I wanted to focus on a lot of free weekends in January. I knew this would be the best way to start off strong with my 2017 goals. So many things get pushed aside when time is tight and I wanted to focus and prep on the things I needed to do in order to set us up well. So we said "no" and planned to have a lot of margin.

5 Things I Love About Working for a Big Company

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Colorado Springs

I work for a big company in "corporate America". It's definitely not where I thought I would ever work and even when I started working there after college I thought I would be there a year max. (I will have to share that story another day.) Sam brought that sentiment up the other day when I said I wasn't sure if I could move somewhere else because I didn't think I'd ever find a company I loved working for as much! I love where I work! Sometimes I think big companies get a bad rap so I wanted to share why I love working for one so much!
