Saturday Snapshots: Old, Tame and Tied Down Edition

This song is in heavy rotation on the radio stations around here and every time I hear it it makes me laugh. Mostly because Snoop Dogg is hilarious, as always, but also because it has brought me to the conclusion that Garrett and I are NO LONGER anywhere close to Young and Wild and Free.

Example: We were in bed by 9:30 last night. Yep, we GO HARD!

Anyway, I tell you all this because that fact that we enjoyed two cocktail laden meals out in the last 7 days is a big deal for us. Champagne for a going away party of a friend and then last night’s 911 Night Out after a major car alarm malfunction (you don’t even want to know) that rendered me completely unable to cook dinner.

I swear those onion rings and fish and chips were *TOTALLY* Paleo. (Dude, it was a loooooooooooong week that only a night out at the local pub could fix. I swear.)

Anyway, we did have some good Paleo meals this week but I don’t know that they don’t look so appetizing in pictures even though they were BOMB! (Related: I put this book on hold at the library, as I need MUCH HELP in that category. Fun!)

I’m telling you, there is nothing better than a pot of crusty, roasted brussels sprouts with bacon:
Crusty brussels sprouts + bacon

I also made a pot of Chocolate Chili this week that was about as delicious as it was nutritious!


It sounds like a weird combo but it is simple and flavorful and totally makes sense in your mouth. The recipe can be found in the Well-Fed free download here.

It was a week for chili and roasted veggies and pints of dark beer FOR SURE. We finally got some rain around these parts and the weather definitely made me want to curl up with a blanket and a book far more than going out on the town. It was gorgeous and stormy looking almost every night and it looks like that should continue through next week.


I did manage to drag myself to the gym 5 days this week though, despite the chilly weather, and I took my monthly fitness photo which is totally saving my sanity right now. I can clearly look at photos and see progress even though that bitch of a scale is well…being a bitch. I’m glad I’ve taken once a month photos and will continue to do so even though it sometimes feels like a lame exercise in vanity because the scale is such a sucky tool of measure. UGH!

Speaking of an exercise in vanity, I got a haircut after 11 MONTHS! My hair was scraggly, yo! Man…so bad. But now…it’s better!

Anyway, that’s been my week so far (in photos.) I’ve been playing around with different photo apps on my iphone since I’m working on a fun little project that requires it:


Tell me…what is your favorite iPhone photo app?

    I love Instagram. I probably am on it too much but it’s so fun to see snapshots from friend’s lives.

    I think after the car alarm debacle you deserve dinner out!

    (I thought I already commented but it’s not showing up- weird)

    I have been an instagram fan for a long time. Color process is a great app and I’ve been using it exclusively for the past week. ShakeIt is also great and Cameramatic is fun, although I get a bit overwhelmed by all the filter choices. Phonto allows you to put text on your pictures with ease and Diptic makes fun collages. I think you might also be interested in the website Photojojo Phoneography. It’s a website dedicated to taking Interesting camera phone photos.

    Those fish and chips look soooo good. The brussel sprouts look yummy, too. And YOU look amazing!





What I’m Pinning

  • Delicious tender chicken meatballs, smothered in sauce and cheese, and baked until bubbly hot. This new twist on an Italian classic is easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite! I prepare a lot of recipes. Many make it to the blog, some make it to the garbage, and some find a special …
  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow. (The early 2000s called, and they want those platinum blonde
