This past Saturday I attendended a JuicePlus conference with my blogger friend (and former classmate), Natalie of That Foodie Girl. Natalie and her mom are both avid JuicePlus users and sellers of the product. For those of you unfamiliar with JuicePlus, it’s a whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 25 different fruits, vegetables and grains.
Throughout the day, I listened to a variety of different speakers from the president of the company to the company’s #1 top seller to a few National Marketing Directors all sharing their stories about how JuicePlus has enhanced their lives.

Late Post Alert. I’m well aware that the Fourth of July was more than a week ago (Was it really? Time flies..), but I’m just now getting around to sharing with you what I made for our family’s annual July 4th BBQ. I’m so proud of myself for making this! Every time I talk about it I get giddy.
I have become a HUGE fan of spinach and artichoke dip. I mean I crave it. So when this BBQ came around, I offered to bring a healthier version of the dip so that we can still enjoy it without worrying too much about the excess calories. I made Hungry Girl’s Crazy-Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Dip and it was delicious!

I use to shop at the GAP a lot when I was in high school. The older I got, the more I forgot about the GAP. :/ Sorry, but true.
Earlier this week I really wanted Chipotle (nothing new), so I headed over to the shopping center it was located in to pick some up. I realized that it was only 10:45 a.m. and I felt a little lame ordering lunch that earlier so I parked and decided to pop in to the GAP.
I did it again. I couldn’t help but make ANOTHER orzo dish this past week. I’m glad I did because it sure was delicious. This time I went with something a little hardier: Creamy Orzo with Chicken. I adapted the original recipe from the blog, ‘Table for Two”. (Click the link for the list of ingredients.) When I say ‘adapted’ I really mean I only changed the chicken sausage to actual chicken. Other than that, I kept everything the same.
Chop chop. Always gotta have a glass of wine while you cook.
Don’t you just love technology? Especially when it can save you some mula! One of the great things about being from a family of all girls (sorry Dad :/) is that we get to share the latest fashion finds with one another. Shout-out to Older Sis for introducing me to this great app: Cartwheel by Target.
If you love Target as much as I do, then you’ll love this iPhone app. Target already has some pretty great prices, but this app allows you to check all their discounts for the week and use them all at once.
So many categories to choose from!
