Summer in Iowa

How do you know it’s summer in Iowa?  Well, I just spent 30 minutes cutting up kale, zucchini, summer squash, potatoes, onions, and watermelon.  Tim is grilling the potatoes and onions (check me out on Instagram for picture proof), and the rest of the menagerie is going into the fridge for eatin’ later on.  We […]

Swedish meatballs, yoga pants, and crocheted slippers.

Chris Kresser links to the best recipes!  I found this recipe for Paleo Swedish Meatballs last weekend in one of his posts.  Holy cow.  These turned out sooooo delicious!  They were a lot of work for a weeknight meal, as you need to cook the meatballs in batches on the stove top until they are […]

Buying a new car, stupid mascara, and intermittent fasting

Maybelline Dream Mouse Blush

Um, yeah, I hate it.  At first I thought it was the bees knees, but now I’ve noticed that the fine little particles of mouse actually settle into each individual pore on my cheek.  It looks weird and is disturbing, so this is going in the trash.  What have I replaced it with, you ask, […]

Frye Oxford Oxen Shoe. Wait, that doesn’t sound right…

I bought this super awesome pair of shoes in November, Frye Carson Oxford Shoe.  As I was mink oiling them up tonight, I thought to myself, “You know what, Heather, kudos to you for making such a wise purchase.  These shoes are awesome.”  Why are they awesome, you ask.  Well, let me tell you. See, […]
