Balsamic Brussel Sprouts

As an adult I’ve re-discovered my love for brussel sprouts. As a kid there was no food that I despised more than brussel sprouts. Growing up, my parents would make the Green Giant frozen package sprouts with butter sauce for dinner. They were mushy, cabbage-y,  and soaked in some nasty sauce that tasted way over […]

Podcasts I’m loving

I’m sitting here at a bra shop in royal oak for “busty women” while my mom tries on bras. She’s been back there for 20 minutes already and I don’t see any sign of her coming out soon. So I decided to focus my attention on getting some work done, sorry mom! I’m late to […]

Wedding Season

This will be my third summer in a row of multiple weddings. 2016 was the year of weddings for us. I actually had to take out a loan from the bank just to afford them all, it was insane. We had 8 weddings that year, and we stood in half of them. Luckily this year […]

My Morning Coffee

I’m a coffee addict. I can’t explain it, but I just need it. I can drink it black. I can drink it sugary. I can drink an espresso or a latte. I don’t discriminate against it by any means. If it’s morning and there’s a coffee in front of me, I’ll drink it. As I’ve […]

At home date night

Relationships and dating are funny. After we’ve been in a relationship for awhile we don’t think of ourselves as “dating” any longer. We went on dates in the beginning of the relationship to get to know the person, but we don’t consider going out to dinner a date any longer once that relationship is well […]

Toast everyday

I’m not a big breakfast person. If I make breakfast it’s something quick. Like a smoothie, muffin, hard boiled egg, oatmeal, or toast. Usually its just coffee though. Side note, growing up I used to love toaster strudels, both the fruit ones and the ones with egg and cheese. Obviously I no longer eat those […]

2018 Health Trends

Like I said in the “About me” section. I love trying out all health fads. I’m not sure why, as a medical professional I know some of them are bogus and others are just marketing ploys, but regardless, I’m still a sucker for them. Here are some of the trends that I’m jumping on the […]

How to obtain what we really want

We’ve all been there. We have set goals only to see ourselves slipping after a couple of days. What happens? We have good intentions, we research, we plan, we visualize reaching this goal, we’re confident and we’re hopeful. Where do we go wrong? Are goals the right way to go about it? Is this goal […]
