I was so honored when the ladies at Pumps and Push Ups approached me about doing a feature over on their blog. Pumps and Push Ups is a great online community for women, that encourages women to be the best they can be. I loved the idea behind the blog and so was more than happy to share a bit of myself with their readers. Head on over to Pumps And Push Ups for the complete feature.
Hope everyone had a fantastic start of the new week!

As Baby A's 3rd birthday approaches I find myself wanting more and more to revamp his nursery and turn it into his big boy room. I've always been a fan of gender neutral rooms with hints of personality from the soul living in the space. These art prints by Minted speak to me for some reason. They remind me of the little person he was, is, and soon will be.

Man, have I missed being on here and sharing pieces of me, my family, my work, and my life with all of you. I finally got my hard drive fixed. Unfortunately, still on pins and needles regarding the outcome of the data recovery (crossing fingers...and toes). It does feel good to be back on track though. All I can do is wait, and hope, and pray. In the meantime, as promised, here is the Paleo Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe I wrote about last week that I adapted from this Paleo recipe. Its insanely delicious and made of good gluten- free ingredients. Mmm, mmm, mmm...
For the cookie dough:
2 cups almond flour (or meal)
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut oil (softened)
2 tbsp honey
1/4 cup raw unsweetened coconut flakes
For the topping:
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a blender combine flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon. Pulse in the coconut oil and honey
3. Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and flatten (I used a cup)
4. Bake 6-8 minutes and allow to cool

Hey guys! It's been a doozy of a weekend. First my hard drive gets damaged. I'm still trying to recover my data. Arrrgh. Then on my way home from a healthy Paleo themed pot luck I get not 1 but 2 flat tires!!! Really, I'm not kidding. After one disaster after another, I couldn't help but laugh. Life throws all kinds of curve balls your way; that's inevitable. But, it is the way we take on the hurdles, our ability to brush it off, and how we decide to come out of it all that dictates the severity of the situation and the effect it has on us. It is what it is, what can I do? Nothing really, cept do my best to fix it. And so that is what I'm doing working through it and working it out. I'll be back tomorrow with a great Paleo Snickerdoodle recipe. And guys it's yummy! Til tomorrow my friends.

As you can see I am still slightly obsessed with Lulu Aldunate. Okay, so maybe less like slightly and more like heavily obsessed but I am so loving the eye she has for mixing patterns. Especially these bold and busy prints that if not done right could very easily clash with one another. Lulu does it so effortlessly. The pillows go nicely with the table settings. I remember our couch growing up had this very same print. I wouldn't want to see it recreated in an all-over print like the one we had. In smaller doses like these House Of Spark cushions by Arianna Belle instead. Yup, I'd be down for that.

Have a great weekend!
