My first Whole30 Reintroduction phase... EVER!!! This is the first time that I am really taking the time to spend an extra 2 weeks carefully reintroducing foods back into my diet as stand alone items. This week is going to be the big light bulb moment I think when I experiment with gluten free grains, dairy and gluten. I have been thinking that gluten and dairy are the root of my stomach issues, this should either confirm or contradict that. This is so cool. I feel like I am conducting my own little science experiment.


To a whole bunch of podcasts. I don't know how I all of a sudden I got into this but I did and... obsessed. If you know me you know I am a HUGE fan of Dateline and 48 Hours type shows, DiscoveryID, etc. My worst fear of online dating is in fact getting murdered and ending up on Dateline, which bring me to my current podcast obsession My Favorite Murder. It feeds the true crime junkie in me and it is freaking hilarious. I know it sounds weird and it is, but also awesome. Stay sexy, don't get murdered.

An Instant Pot. Why is it so hard for me to pull the trigger on this? Maybe because I have every piece of kitchen equipment known to man and it seems gratuitous to purchase yet another one? I don't know, it's a little pricey as well. However, everyone I know that has one swears by it. Anyone have an opinion??

Instant Pot DUO Plus 60, 6 Qt  9-in-1 Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Yogurt Maker, Egg Cooker, Sauté, Steamer, Warmer, and Sterilizer


I need a new Netflix binge. Need... haha. So far these are my choices: Wormwood, Ozark, The Crown and Mindhunter... possibly starting Sons of Anarchy because I never really watched the whole thing but seems like a bigger commitment than I may want right now. Please weigh in... or give me more choices.


Because I also need another cute tote bag... this from The Shop Forward. One of my instagram homies posted about this and I luuuurve it. You pick your "4 Things" to be printed on the bag. Super fun fact, everything they sell benefits a cause. You can read all about their mission here. Now if I could just figure out the perfect 4 Things to have printed on my bag. Definitely give them a follow on IG and see all their stuff plus the awesome things people come up with for their bags. If you need to buy a gift for someone you know really well thus would be perfect!

Linking up with Anne cause it's what the cool kids do. 


  1. I've never seen I think the first 3 seasons of SOA. I started watching at 3 or 4 & then watched to the end. I always told myself once it was over I'd start it from the beginning, or at least watch the first few seasons. And yet here we are... lol

  2. the only reason why i wont get an IP is because i have a crockpot .... and i heard that essentially replaces the crockpot!

  3. I really love Mad Men and am on my second go around watching the series right now. It still has me binge watching at night. Do you have Amazon Prime? The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is fantastic new series on there.

    I got an instant pot for Christmas so far I really like quick shredded chicken and hard boiled eggs. I am still intimidated by it for the most part.

    1. Omg.... loved Madmen!!!I have Prime and I will definitely check that out! I am pretty sure I am going to bite the bullett and get my Instant Pot soon.

  4. Those bags are so fun!!! I didn't think I cared anything about having an instant pot because I have a crock pot and all. But it's like every new recipe requires one now and I have FOMO. If you get one, I want to hear your thoughts!

  5. Love The Shop Forward - I want a bag but can't decide on four things.

    I have been mulling over an instant pot for over a year. I don't want something else that I'm not going to use.

  6. I've been holding out on the Instant Pot because I have a crockpot that I barely use... but I may have to pull the trigger. It's so much faster! Never heard of The Shop Forward but fairly certain I *need* a new tote! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I really do want to get an Instant Pot; whenever I can actually afford it. lol Ooh I recommend Mindhunter. I watched that and really loved it. I LOVE My Favorite Murder too, but I need to start listening to it again. I was doing well when I could walk outside but it's SO COLD now.


    1. I am super addicted to MFM. I feel like they are my people, I am obsessed. The best part is they are so freaking funny

  8. I feel the same about the Instant Pot... haven't taken the plunge yet but sooo tempted! Maybe if I get rid of one of my crock pots :)
