My MK purse was MEESSSYYY so I did a purse clean out - and I know now that I truly AM the snack lady! The nurse/on the go life has me all over the place in my schedule and snack bars have become a go to when hanger strikes and I can't any other "real" food.
What I found in my purse:
dark chocolate pretzel bar thins
Shakeology Cafe Latte
Rx Bar (chocolate sea salt)
Quest Hero (caramel pecan)
Nature Valley bars (chocolate pretzel and cashew sweet and salty)
Oh Yeah ONE bar (blueberry cobbler)
dog treats (yeah...it's true)
Thought it might be fun to do a snack bar review!
I put off getting an air fryer for probably over a year...thinking it would just be another "fad" appliance and I would probably never use it. I HATE clutter so I'm picky. But after thinking about it for what seemed like FOREVER curiosity got the best of me and Target put out of a good sale. And I've never looked back! So far it's found its place on the counter and I thought I would share a few tips, tricks and "recipes" I have made so far!
Whether it's working full time outside the home a 9-5, 12 hours nursing shifts that vary, or staying at home with your crazy kids it's HARD to fit in a workout too!

Today on the blog I'm featuring FIVE of my top tips for fitting in some time saving tips for making it all work for you.
Bringing back a few recipes, food ideas and what I've been loving lately in the kitchen in hopes to inspire you too!
I put off getting an air fryer for so long ... I didn't want to get another fad appliance that would just sit in storage! But so far I have been using it so much it has been allowed to stay on the counter - Decided to try making all the ingredients for fajitas in there... and they turned out great!
Best part? I cooked once and this meal has already been eaten in two different ways!
Mornings can be your best friend. Really!
He is so precious, mischieveous, a lot of work - but totally worth it. And he has taught me so much this week - not only about puppy training (I'm a total newb)...but lessons in life too!
Yes we added a baby to our family...but not the kind you are thinking...
