Semi-Minimalist Gift Ideas

Semi-Minimalist Gift Ideas

Well, I’m still pregnant over here.  At the beginning of the pregnancy, I had a feeling that she was going to come early, but I guess she has her own feelings on the matter! Rather than fixating on how uncomfortable I am (okay, I’ve done some of that too), I’m working on finishing up a few last minute projects before she makes her appearance.  One of those projects is buying Christmas gifts for friends and family. I’m trying to get…

10 Simple Ways to Stay Healthy on a Budget

Ever since we got married, Hubby and I have made it a point each month to budget. In the past, we mutually agreed that we’d rather spend our extra cash on travel and other fun experiences rather than on Target runs. (No offense, Target. I still love you.)  Now with a baby on the way, we’ve been looking for ways to cut expenses a just a little bit further. Babies aren’t exactly cheap, even if you take a more minimalistic…

Healthy and Inexpensive Date Ideas

Healthy and Inexpensive Date Ideas

Hubby and I have always been pretty frugal people.  However, we both can get a serious case of FOMO! We hate to sacrifice fun and miss out on experiences just because of finances.  One thing that we’re not willing to give up is date night. (And travel, but that’s another post for another day!)  We’re both running in different directions during the week, so date night gives us a chance to reconnect and spend some quality time together.  Additionally, the…

What’s In My Bag? Physical Therapist Edition!

What’s In My Bag? Physical Therapist Edition!

I recently wrote about how carrying the wrong type of purse and/or carrying too much stuff in it can contribute to back, neck and shoulder pain.  Along those lines, I thought it might be interesting for me to show you what I actually carry in my handbag on a day-to-day basis.  I try to keep things pretty minimal, but I also like to be prepared for whatever life throws at me.  So here’s a look at what’s…

Is Your Purse Causing Your Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain? A Physical Therapist’s Perspective + What To Do About It!

I confess. I’ve let my purse contents get, well… out of hand.  And as a physical therapist, I know better!  My purse has turned into a Mary Poppins bag of sorts over the past few months. It’s all too easy to do.  I decided I needed to do something when I spent a day out with friends and came home with neck and shoulder pain plus an awful tension headache. Carrying a purse the wrong way or one that’s too…
