Dairy-Free Ice Cream Recipes

Being lactose intolerant is HARD, like REALLY hard. If I had a choice- I would eat all the cheese, ice cream, and creamy goodness I could. But honestly- I get so sick off of it- it just isn’t worth it anymore. People ask all the time why I don’t take a “pill” so I can eat it. Do you know how “unnatural” that is. There’s a problem with my body breaking down lactose naturally- and so putting a foreign object into my body to do it for me- goes against all the basic principles of how our body works. So …

Anxiety Busting Tips

As if postpartum depression wasn’t bad enough, when I went back to work, I was faced with daily anxiety attacks. These were completely new to me and I had no idea what was happening at first. My chest would tighten, I couldn’t focus, my mind was popping around like a pinball machine, I would cry over random things, my head would hurt, and I felt like the walls were closing in. After a week of single parenting, working full time with an hour commute on each end, and these anxiety attacks, I HAD to get a handle on this. There …

Your Missing Link

I can attribute one single thing to the success of my health and fitness journey. The one thing that kept me from yoyoing, from starting and stopping over and over again. That one thing is SO simple and yet so powerful. It wasn’t a workout routine, it wasn’t eating the right foods, it wasn’t counting calories or hitting the gym. This post may contain affiliate links- I earn a portion of the proceeds, but it costs you nothing on your end, it just helps me feed my family It was personal development. 10 minutes a day of diving into a …

I got maybe 30 minutes of “quality” time with my baby before having to put her …

Becoming a Family

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have a huge travel bug. I’ve been all over the US, and traveled internationally 3 times and been to 5 European Countries. Each vacation has something special and a special memory attached.Some good memories: like my first solo vacation without a friend or relative.Some, not so good: Like the time I locked my friend’s brother into their Paris Apartment by accident- the day we left the city. I’ve never seen someone so mad before. But by far, my favorite vacation was the vacation we took following my husband’s fourth deployment. You see, …

Hi, I’m Lauren

Hey guys! I’m Lauren. Since you stumbled upon my little blogging space I figured an introduction would be nice!

You never realize how much you take for granted the area you live in, until you’re in a completely different cultural environment. We’ve lived in NorCal (not to be confused with beautiful beaches and sunny CA) for 5 …
