As
you all know, while we were in Utah, both Adam & Kannon got really
sick. High fevers for days (Kannon is still really sick..) This was our
last day up there & since Adam was feeling a bit better, we decided
to at least get out of the cabin. Thankful for my parents who watched
Kannon so we could get some fresh air!

Anyways, this past week has been nuts. Trying to get back home with a baby with constant fevers & severe body aches was not only difficult but extremely sad. It is the worst feeling in the world when your baby is sick & you can’t do anything to make him feel better. Not only has he shed many tears this week, I will admit that I have as well. I honestly have not gotten anything done in the past 7 days. Our apartment is a disaster & Adam is out of town filming. To say I’m exhausted is an understatement… BUT all I want right now is to make Kannon as comfortable as possible so he can get better. He is & will always be my top priority (sorry guys, that means there may be times like this where I’m a bit behind on posts). I’m so blessed to not have to work & get to be a stay at home momma. I couldn’t imagine having to leave him with someone else while he’s been so sick. He literally has spent 98% of the past week on my chest, even when he’s asleep that’s where he wants to be. & until he is better, that’s exactly what we will be doing. Okay, enough of my little rant! Thank you all for following along with my life! I’m appreciative of each & every one of you & your sweet comments/emails! I love getting to meet people from all around the world. Like I said before, I am truly blessed & I thank the Lord daily for this wonderful/challenging life because it has made me who I am today! 🙂

Sorry I’ve been MIA again.. Adam & Kannon were both super sick while we were in Utah & Kannon is still sick… 6 days with fever & all he wants to do is snuggle on my chest. I hate that he is so sick but I secretly love the snuggles 🙂 Hoping he gets feeling better soon because I have a lot of fun posts for you guys!!

healthy road trip snacks

650 433 Sheridan Gregory
I absolutely love road trips! I love to just drive & explore new places along the way. My one problem with road trips? It’s so hard to eat healthy while in the car! Sure we stop at Chipotle & Subway and those are some healthy food options but they can get old really fast. Today, I am showing you some of my favorite road trip snacks! I also like to snack on some veggies & green juice but I didn’t have a cooler this trip so I had to live with snacks that didn’t need to be refrigerated 🙂 What are your favorite healthy road trip snacks?? Let me know! I’m always looking for new ideas!
1.) Fruit: I know that too much fruit isn’t good for you but I would much prefer to have the natural sugars instead of the processed junk.
2.) Kind Bars & Kashi Bars: These are my absolute favorite bars! I used to avoid bars because most of them are high in sugar & have a lot of unnecessary ingredients. These ones have a shorter list of ingredients then most. If you want even more natural ingredients, try LaraBars, they only have 3-4 ingredients in each bar! They are a little bit higher in fat though due to the nuts.
3.) Nuts: Whenever I’m looking for a snack, I eat a handful of nuts (6-10) & then drink a glass of water. Nuts are high in protein (obviously! :)) so they keep you full longer. Don’t eat too many though because even though they are good fats, they are still full of fat & you don’t want too much of that!
4.) Popcorn Chips: I know that these technically aren’t ‘healthy’ but they are much healthier than regular chips & sometimes you just need a little crunchy snack to get you through the trip! I also love the little rice cakes. Go for the flavored ones, the plain are nasty!
5.) Dried Edamame: These are another great crunchy snack! They are a good source of protein as well so they will keep you full.
 
FYI Make sure you look at the labels so you can do portion control!!!
Look at the serving size & how many calories so you don’t eat more than you think you are 🙂

 I guess I’ve been into plaid lately.. I didn’t realize until I looked back at my last post! I’ll try to not wear plaid for a little bit 🙂 Heading to Vegas tonight to see my parents for a day & then off to Utah! Hope you all are having a good week so far!

As much as I love to dress up & be a girly girl, I can’t help but have my casual days. I am absolutely loving this faux leather jacket! I needed a new one & I am so happy I found this one. Every girl needs a leather jacket because I feel like no matter what your style is, you can wear one & either dress it up or down. Also, these jeans? You can consider them my new favorites. Perfect wash & perfect fit. Thank you, Express! 🙂 We are headed to Vegas tomorrow night & then Utah the following morning. I am seriously trying to mentally prepare for the cold. Going to do a little shopping today & hopefully find some warm things to wear so I don’t freeze my buns off! Hope you all had a great weekend!

We went to the pier when my family was in town & although it was very cold (for Southern California of course ;)) we had an absolute blast! Poor Kannon was so cold that we had to buy this cheesy little penguin beanie once we got there haha. He’s just so dang cute I can’t stand it! In other news but not really other news… I seriously can’t stop wearing beanies. A) I need to get my hair colored B) I’m trying not to put as much heat on my hair & C) It’s actually been quite chilly here in LA. We’re headed to Utah next week for the Sundance Film Festival & I’m literally going to freeze to death. So I hope you don’t get sick of me wearing them 🙂 Hope you all are staying warm wherever you are! Thanks for following along with our lives!

Cake Batter Truffles

150 150 Sheridan Gregory
I dove deep into the blog archives to find this recipe because it’s one of my favorites & I realized I haven’t made it in years. I figured I would share it again here (sorry for the poor photo quality & small images) because it’s a quick recipe for Valentine’s Day! I’m going to make these with the boys today & I know they’re going to be obsessed. Who doesn’t love cake batter flavored anything!?
Just a little side note, the recipe calls for candy melts but I didn’t have any so I used white chocolate instead (which was seriously amazing). That’s why mine don’t have the silky smooth coating!
Cake Batter Truffles
Slightly Adapted From: The Girl Who Ate Everything

Dough Balls:

1 ½ cups flour

 

1 cup confetti cake mix

 

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

 

½ cup white sugar

 

1 teaspoon vanilla

 

1/8 teaspoon salt

4 Tablespoons milk

 

 

Truffle Coating:

 

16 ounces white chocolate (or white candy melts)

 

1 Tablespoon yellow cake mix

 

sprinkles


Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add 3 Tablespoons of milk or more if needed to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up.

While dough balls are chilling, melt almond bark in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals. Once melted, quickly stir in cake mix until incorporated completely. Using a fork, dip truffles into almond bark and shake of excess bark by tapping the bottom of the fork on the side of your bowl. Place truffle back on the cookie sheet and top with sprinkles. Repeat with remaining balls until finished.

 

 

 

Chill cake batter truffles in the refrigerator until serving. Makes around 24-30 truffles.
