Feb! Finally!

via GIPHY

Now that the year of January 2018 is over we can start getting back to the gym machines at our local workout facilities. The resolutioners are probably gone by now, and we can finally sweat and look gross in peace. So I wanted to take a moment to list a few new books I've read, new podcasts I listen to each week and a fun upcoming 5k I signed up for. Que the gasps... yes I plan on running a 5k! haha after too long of being lazy and not participating in group activities I am trying to get back in there and meet new people. I have a few fun things on the calendar for February too.

Nothing changes on new years day - U2

So happy new year! Glad you are still reading this... all 2 of you.
Since literally no one cares what I write about and I have no following this is simple.
I don't have resolutions for this year. Who cares, look at this country... Trump is running it into the ground at full force.

Also you don't need Jan. 1st to change your life, or start working out... you have 365 days out of a year to change. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself. I am practicing what I preach. Love who you are... and just breath through the stress, and BS that life hands us.

Stay true boo. Also GO OPRAH!! Didn't her speech give you the chills, I'm still so in AWE of that moment from Sunday at the Golden Globes.

New Chapter- Motorcycle mama

This September I enrolled in the Harley Davidson course to learn how to ride a motorcycle!
It seems as though I will be joining the many women, and men out on the open road. Two wheels, wind in the hair, and adventure ahead.

I have always been a passenger. Since the age of 12 when my mom got her first motorcycle I always loved the feeling of being on the back of the bike, and being in a group setting.
Everyone has the same goal; get out, feel free, and enjoy the road on two wheels. My sisters both got their license, one currently still rides now. I feel very blessed to have so many riders in my mom's group ORA to support and help me learn how to become the best rider I can be. I can not wait to get out next year when the weather is warmer.

I have looked at many bikes and so far I have not found one yet but I stay hopeful and know the perfect one is out there.

I have a goal of riding in California for the :Babes ride out tour! It looks so awesome and I think it would be a fun, exciting way to meet new women riders.
Joshua Tree is on my bucket list and I would love to someday ride in Italy again but this time not on a moped but on my own motorcycle!

Summer reading list

Well we are not into the middle of summer and I wanted to share my top 4 books I've read so far this year. I am bummed about it almost being August. Not only will I be one year older on August 20th. I will also be sending my youngest to 4k! A brand new school for my baby Julianna. It is bittersweet, but I am happy she is excited and ready to start a new chapter. So usually I go for memoirs at the book store or on Amazon.com but lately I have been submerging myself into these love stories. I get lost in the pages, and follow these amazing characters through heartache and beauty.



The Secret Wife- Paul Gill




Everything We Keep- Kerry Lonsdale





You'll grow out of it- Jessi Klein




All the Missing Girls- Megan Miranda




I encourage you to start a Goodreads page to track the "Want to Read" versus "Read"

Happy Reading Everyone!

Fresh at The Farmers Market!

Happy Monday!

I have not really been in the cooking mood lately.... is it the summer heat, or is it just my laziness?
So fresh veggies, and local favorites from the market are my go to lately.

I love a great farmers market and Wauwatosa has one of thee best!!
I love waking up early on Saturdays and by early I mean 8am. This past weekend I picked up a bunch of Pickling cucumbers, Green peppers, and onions. I decided to try pickling them! They turned out awesome. I am obsessed with pickled stuff. I love pickled mushrooms, onions... and cucumbers of course. So Ill share the easy recipe I found on Pintrest! If you live in the Milwaukee area, I definitely recommend you go to the Tosa farmers market at least once. Get yourself a Pete's Pop, Hawthorne Coffee, or a huge bag of the freshest veggies from the local farmers. Usually a local musician will be there as well. I have yet to try the "Scratch Ice Cream" but that is on my "To Do" list.

Check out the long list of Vendors you'll find at the T.F.M 👇
