Guest Post - Oatmeal After Spinning!

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 this first post in the series to you, from my blogger friend Lauren.  I haven't been in this "blogosphere" very long, but from the first moment I "met" Lauren, she was such an encouraging ...

This weekend was jam-packed full of of living: Hanging out with the fam, creating yummy meals, exploring the mountains, etc...  It was soooooooo jam-packed, that I just got home after 10PM, ran a load of dishes, quickly cleaned out the car, and am trying to get a quick blog post up.  I may be paying for this tomorrow!!  Oh.My.Goodness - you wouldn't believe the mess we can make in just a half day excursion!!  The joys of toddler parenthood I suppose.  Our trip did include cra ...

I took the night off last night, to enjoy time with dear hubby.  We had drinks on the patio as we watched the sun set, peering into each other's eyes, remembering why we had first fallen in love oh those many years ago.  OK, it wasn't quite as Titantic-esque as I'm describing, but it sure was a nice break from the regular fast pace of weekday nights!  We were on the patio.  We did have alcoholic beverages.  And we were together, listening to one another, and just being a coup ...

Google Searches: if you look, you will find

So you may or may not know this, but Google KNOWS.  Google knows what you search for and reports that data back to website owners.  It also follows where you click from one site to another, documenting your path.  It's actually kindof eerie how MUCH they know!!  So everyday I get a list of all the search words/phrases/gibberish that people searched for on Google who then ended up at my blog.  Most are normal, "no sugar sweet life" or "no sugar blog" or "no sugar recipes" etc... ...
