Camping at Rock Cut State Park

“I also think it’s pointless for a human to paint scenes of nature when they can go outside and stand in it.” – Ron Swanson

Pictures of nature are nice, but I kind of agree with Ron.  Go outside.  Seriously.  It will do you a world of good.  Adam and I spend the weekend at Rock Cut State Park in Rockford, IL and it was just delightful! Camping at Rock Cut State Park | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

My Favorite Camping Recipes

Adam and I are off to our first camping trip of the summer and I am super pumped.  I know camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but it’s nice to head outside and get away from our phones and computers and TV for just a few days.  Plus, I get to cook over an open fire and somehow, everything is just tastier.  My Favorite Camping Recipes | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

PB & J Bites

Katie tidbit #32: I used to thoroughly dislike peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Crazy, right?  Like, what child DOESN’T like peanut butter and jelly?  Ok, maybe the kids who are allergic to peanuts might not enjoy the classic PB & J, but they have an incredibly valid reason to dislike that amazing combo.

I just remember every time I opened my lunchbox to find PB & J staring back at me I was a little less than enthused.  I will admit PB & J was better than the we-ran-out-of-sandwich-meat-so-here-is-the-last-of-the-cheese sandwich.  Those were worse than PB & J.  Sorry Mom. PB & J Bites | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Monday Stuff

Well, Good Monday Morning to you my fine readers!  I hope you are having an excellent start to the week!

I find if you pretend you are chipper and happy on a Monday, the rest of the week goes a little better.  I’m a little slow-moving today and don’t really want to do any of the work I know I have to do, so pretending to have it all together is what I’ve got today.  Sometimes that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

Mmmm.  Cookies. Monday Stuff | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Plantain & Pepper Bake

I think I’m the worst millennial ever.  I just don’t get a lot of trends that we millennials are supposed to be all about.  I don’t follow the hip lingo and I’m def not up to date on the hottest celebs.  Ugh.  I hate that I just said celebs.

I’m also not super savvy at social media.  I know I should be because I’m a blogger, but sometimes it’s just too much and I can’t keep up.  I’ve decided to limit myself to just a few even if that means being behind the times or whatever horrible things will happen to those of us not on every single media platform. Plantain & Pepper Bake | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
