Colorado is on Fire

If you haven't heard, Colorado is on fire.  Not just in one spot; there are multiple fires in multiple cities...a big darn deal.  This picture is of Colorado Springs, where the Air Force Academy and the "Garden of the Gods" are located.  Over 32,000 people have had to evacuate (including friends of ours!), and a lot of homes have burned.  It is blazing hot, literally: 105 in Denver this week! And the wind is 70mph: a firefighter's nightmare. 

Sweet Monday + The Simply Bar Giveaway

Mondays just got a whole lot sweeter, y'all!  Today launches the next 3 MONTHS of Monday giveaways here at No Sugar Sweet Life!  I don't know about you, but I am sooooooooo excited about this!!  I always like winning free stuff... but I REALLY like giving away free (awesome) stuff.  And with so many giveaways, the odds you'll win one of them is fairly high!  So, every Monday I will review a new (awesome) product and announce a giveaway.  Then, every Friday I'll announce that week's winner.  Then come back the next Monday to do it all over again! 

7 Low Sugar Tips Anyone Can Adopt

First, I'd like to reiterate something I said yesterday on Facebook.  If you're not yet a fan, go ahead and "like" me because there's lots of additional conversations, photos, and questions that never make it on to the actual blog!  I started a devotional plan yesterday - 35 days of a bit of Bible plus a story / message that goes along with it.  I've ...

Sale Papers + {Watermelon Bacon Salad}

I did something for the first time in 31 years yesterday.  In light of the big changes coming up in my life, I mentioned that Dear Hubby and I would be tightening our belts a bit, sticking to a strict budget (until we figure out exactly how one income is really going to feel), and simplifying things.  I also told you about our mail organization - every item on a daily basis either goes in the "To File" container, the "To Pay" container, o ...

Family Rejuvenation: Hiking, Mountains, and Creek Splashing

I wanted to share with you a few highlights from our Father's Day weekend.  I hope yours was really special!  To all those fathers out there: Thank you for the love, time, and energy you devote to us, and for helping us to truly enjoy "life to the full!" You are appreciated beyond measure.  I started off the celebrations by letting Dear Hubby sleep in... 'til 9.  Those of you without kids are thinking: "9?! ...

The Red Table + {Strawberry Pesto Grilled Cheese}

My friend Gina has a blog called Running to the Kichen, and I am always jealous of a) her photography, b) her meals, c) her extreme creativity, and d) her really cool backgrounds.  I had the privilege of meeting her at Blend, and love her to death! She recently wrote a post about her special "photoboard" with instructions on how to create your own.  I was so excited to try to make one of my own someday (in all my spare time, ha!!).  But then I remembered

Guest Post: Production Mgr of "Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead"

I mentioned awhile back that I wanted to do a couple new fun things with the blog - and one of those is to bring some outside perspectives (every once in awhile) on what others believe to be the essentials for a happy healthy life.  Afterall, that's the goal of this blog!!  I am soooooo excited to bring the next post in the series to you, from the Production Manager of the acclaimed Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead documentary.  She reached out to me at the beginning of the year about being ...
