PSL is here

And you may ask yourself... Well, how did I get here? At least I do just about every time I flip the calendar over to a new month. But this is September, the most wonderful time of the year. It's actually already starting to feel like fall here in GA. We have had some cool temps thanks to all of the hurricanes and I have been loving it. So let's get into what else is up currently...


My beautiful daughter made the Equestrian Team at Georgia Southern!!! I am so beyond proud of her and she is super excited. It was not planned at all. She took an all skill levels horseback riding class as an elective just to get some barn time and exercise. Just so happens the equestrian team rides at the same barn and to make a long story short, after seeing her ride and inquiring as to why she was not trying out for the team, they offered her a spot. Of course I said go for it, I'll scrub some extra toilets if I have to! This is a huge opportunity for her as she is studying to be a large animal vet with an equine specialty. How cool is that??


My progress on the scale go up and down like a yo-yo. I know, you are going to say throw the scale out but I want to see how this keto thing is working. I thought it was. I lost 8 lbs then one weekend I gained five, then I lost 6 and the next weekend I gained 4. The long and short of this is that I don't think I really thought this through, researched enough or know what the hell I'm actually doing here. There is a science to it and I am going to need to keep tweaking it a bit to get it to work for me. Everything I have read says you can expect to lose about 12 lbs the first month. Yeah, unless you are me. My gut feeling is that the Whole30 approach is a better fit for me, eliminate dairy and add back fruits and veggies. But I'm gonna stick this out just a bit longer and see. is perhaps the best change I've ever made.Tracy did this and looks great !Who knew that this would be so super!


All things pumpkin spice. I mean, I'm not gonna lie... I am one of those weirdos who loves the stuff and if it has pumpkin spice on the label my FOMO does not allow me to pass it up. Like what if it is really good and it sells out before I can try it??? Looks like a few doozies out there this year...

Holy Hell yes, 1000 times yes...

Not much lately. I feel like I am doing a bit better job at living this year and not documenting every little thing by trying to photograph my entire life. No apologies.

Linking up with Anne and Lowanda for Currently this month. 


  1. it does take a while to find your groove when doing something new with your health/diet/food. it took me good few weeks to figure out my windows for intermittent fasting so i support you taking more time to figure things out before calling it quits! i always give myself a 3month trial period before quitting something so that i know i gave my body a fair shot to adapt or reject.

  2. Ahhhhh my friend Laura went to Gunshow when she visited Atlanta last month and loved it. I am going to have to make my way back to check out all the new places I have missed since moving. Which is probably way too many. I am yo-yoing all over the place on the scale as well. I lose 5 lbs gain 3 back, over and over again. I knew that Keto would never work for me because I am not a huge meat person but I love my fruit and veggies. I have already gotten one PSL this season. Yay for cooler temps and all the fall things!

  3. I, too, am a pumpkin spice everything kind of girl and it’s nice to meet someone with likeminded values ;) Also, I’ve been trying to lose baby weight (my son is a year and a half) and I’m not having much luck. I’m just having to get comfortable with my new body but still be conscious about what I eat and how active I am.

    Nice meeting you from the linkup!

  4. Oh my goodness! Pumpkin hummus sounds delicious!


  5. I feel like I might be one of the few people who is not into pumpkin spice at all - but definitely I agree hat some things make way more sense than others. Beer?! Ew.

  6. Damn it Bud Light... LOL I actually don't like anything Pumpkin. Congrats to your daughter!

  7. To be honest, I don't like anything pumpkin but I LOVE almost everything fall related. Congrats to your daughter! that's SO awesome.


  8. I'm also a pumpkin spice nut. I love baking tons of pumpkin recipes!!

  9. Happy birthday! And I've never seen NutPods before - looks like something I could actually have on my diet!

  10. Congrats to your daughter! That's quite an accomplishment. Fall is my favorite season and I love pumpkin spice flavor, but some foods/beverages should never jump on that bandwagon.

  11. It is good to go upon planning and just after going through this post, I came to know what plans are actually, I hope you get able to do everything you’ve decided in this month.
