Today: 💁🏽♂️"You're doing REALLY good in your business!" -husband 😭❤️❤️ Can you believe this dude thought coaching 🏋🏼♀️🌱👩🏼💻was a scam 3 years ago?! Didn't want me to have ANYTHING to do with it. FOR DAYS. I was like "la la la la can't hear you - I've got a PLAN + VISION + means to make our dream life a reality.." held STRONG. For US. Now he's my BIGGEST supporter. 😭😭💕💕 I ditched my phone 📱yesterday when he got home since he's been on an out of town job all week. We watched "CHIPS" (hilarious AF), slept 😴in til 10:30am since we've BOTH been getting up at 5:30am we deserve it 😍😬. Had a coffee date at our fav local cafe @journeycoffeeco (I got a lavender Nitro ☕️coldbrew, he got a vanilla latte + almond milk)💃🏼💃🏼 We went to the grocery store and picked up stuff for healthy dinner🌱🍴 & now we're doing dirt bike/ RV home✨🚋 upkeep and errands 😍😍💕💕He's cleaning, organizing and fixing. I'm cleaning and minimizing - look at us goooo. 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️🏃🏽🏃🏽#nuggetmarket#vacavilleca#supportivespouse
Last night's @theblogbloc event at @beatnikstudios was a feast for the eyes and the stomach! The art from @wideopenwalls916_ was gorgeous as was the food from @nuggetmarkets! Swipe on over to see the rest of the gorgeous food!
It was so amazing to see a bunch of my bloggy friends and meet lovely new people! If you're in the Sacramento area, you've got to check out these events put on by @thelipstickgiraffe! It's an amazing way to connect and to put a face to a name! I can't wait for next month!

I am so lucky I work for Nugget. I've never talked about how much of an impact they made over the last 10 months. When Austin was first diagnosed, not only did they make sure that I could have the time I needed off of work without having to worry about work, but they also came and visited us in the hospital. When I returned to work they allowed me to work 3 days a week and still keep my title while Austin was going through the brunt of his treatment. Where most companies would ask you to step down, they worked with me and helped me succeed at work while still being able to be there with Austin 100%. Now that I'm back full time they have been challenging me to dig deep as a leader and take my team to new levels. I have taken on the challenge head on and have been rewarded with the opportunity to train new coffee bar associates company wide.
Today I was awarded the coveted "duer" shirt at my corporate plan and loss meeting. It would not have been possible with out my solid amazing dedicated team and all they have done to help me since I returned to the store. I'm "all in" and I look forward to what the future is going to bring! @nuggetmarkets #nuggetmarket#duer
Random supermarket haul! The supermarket near our hotel is awesome. I got: Cobb salad, white nectaries, energy drink for our 6hr drive tomorrow, cashew nut butter, almond/coconut/cocoa butter, Zinfandel wine, seaweed snax, olives, pumpkin seeds, sun butter cups and bison jerky! #nuggetmarket#groceryhaul
The Nugget .... I LOVE this store! I hate shopping but I don't mind grocery shopping. They have an AWESOME organic produce section and I can find organic products here that I can't find at other stores. I'm a one-stop-shop kinda girl!
I ❤️ SPAGHETTI SQUASH! Simple, healthy and delish. First step is to bake your squash:
- Heat oven to 420 degrees
- Slice spaghetti squash in half
- Scoop out seeds
- Brush with olive oil
- Line baking sheet with foil (for less clean-up)
- Place both halves sliced side down
- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until skin is fork tender
- Let cool to touch
- Remove inside of squash with fork - it should resemble spaghetti
- Season to taste with olive oil, salt, pepper.
- Mix-in suggestions for spaghetti squash: variety of pasta sauces, Parmesan cheese, veggies, avocado, chopped chicken breast, beans, tofu or a preferred protein substitute.
Lower right photo features spaghetti squash mixed with heirloom tomatoes, chicken, basil, arugula, eggplant, zucchini, Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and red pepper. I cooked the squash first, then mixed with leftover veggies, tomatoes and #nuggetmarket rotisserie chicken breast (since I was short on time to bake chicken). My kids aren't super keen on an entire plate of spaghetti squash but they will eat it mixed with pasta (half squash/half noodles) and topped with a yummy red sauce. Easy peasy dinner for everyone. Enjoy! 😋
I keep telling myself I'm not going to befriend our travel nurses cause they leave and I get sad but she got me! Gonna miss my awesome homey Kim and hope she will make it back one day! Since wine is frowned upon at work we settled on brownies! #rn#nurselife#nursefriends#nuggetmarket#unicorncake
