havasupai falls grand canyon arizona trip tips and packing list

There are no words to explain this trip…but I will try my very hardest. This place is like the Garden of Eden except with turquoise waters, the greenest of greenery, and the most peaceful, serene, adventurous vibes from the environment and all of the people there. If you’re thinking about going, I’ll give you a little rundown of our trip and what we did so you know what to expect:


Before & After: DIY Stencil Floors

I’m sure you’ve seen those amazingly Pinterest-perfect patterned tiled floors before in kitchens, bathrooms, and sometimes laundry rooms…but have you ever thought that those may have been stenciled?! I used $50 and a few weeks’ worth of dirty work to DIY our old linoleum master bath floors…and here is how I did it!

2018 Hand-Lettered Calendar (free download!)

It’s almost October, and our 2018 calendar is filling up QUICK! I always keep a paper calendar up on our fridge (I’ll say it’s to keep organized, but it’s mainly so that important events are up front and center in front of my boyfriend so he doesn’t forget.)

We seriously already have almost two things every month going on…from weddings and bachelor/bachelorette parties, to trips and reunions. Life is CRAZY!

But since I made the calendar anyway, I wanted y’all to have it too! See below to download your own month-by-month. I like to print mine on 25lb paper (stays sturdy enough to last throughout the year, erases perfectly when you have to make calendar changes, but not too heavy that it will slide off the fridge!)

New Year = Old Habits

Ever since my injury last year, I’ve struggled to find a balance in life with the right exercise for me because I can no longer do high intensity activities that I love like sprinting and plyometric workouts. This year, I’ve focused on nailing that down by combining a mix of barre, yoga, and my new favorite HIIT cardio workout in Scottsdale, Simply Cardio. Alongside all my favorite outdoor activities – hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, etc.

But to be honest – between traveling, moving in with my boyfriend, rehabbing my leg, and just…life – I’ve really let my healthy eating slip!
