Meet Heidi

image

Hey there, thanks for stopping by our little blog!  Ang and I have entertained this blog idea long enough and finally just took a leap of faith, said a prayer and jumped in.

I have been married 24 years, this June, to the man of my dreams, my high school sweetheart.  He has stuck by me through more thin than thick, he makes me laugh on a daily basis and loves me even when I can be hard to love.

We have two children, our daughter is a senior in high school this year, and headed to college in the fall .  Our son is 13 and changes almost every day. They are both such fun, loving, easygoing, smart and caring kids,  I’m not sure why I deserve to mother them.  Being a wife and mom is my favorite part about being me.  Pearl, our sweet, gentle, three year old Boston Terrier makes our family complete.

I also fly the friendly skies, serving coffee and tea in a glamorous poly-blend.  Yes, I’ve been a flight attendant for 25 YEARS (oh my that just made me sound really old) this June.  It’s been a great career and I feel blessed to have my job almost everyday I go to work.  Of course if I said EVERYDAY, this would be a lie.  Sometimes traveling at 30,000 feet includes vomit. In those minutes, I really don’t care much for my job. But overall, it’s a great gig!

Other things I LOVE:

*road biking *hiking *coffee *everything paper *crossfit *eating paleo *baking *cooking *laughing *Bible Study Fellowship *all the amazing women in my life *the beach *wine *bell peppers *the smell of suntan oil  *chococlate *the smell of the first rain after hot summer day *memories of my mom *Stabilo pens *tulips

But above all I love God and I am humbled by the love, comfort and blessings he has given me.

Say what ? Butter coffee?

About a year and a half ago my husband started talking all about butter coffee or BulletProof coffee as it’s also known.  I turned my nose up and smirked, “Ew, that sounds gross! Butter in your coffee?” He smiled and sat very content with his butter coffee.  Making it every morning he would rave about how good it was. Until finally one day when he wasn’t looking I took a sip.  Mmmm…what was this creamy goodness that I had been snubbing?  It was like no coffee I’ve ever had!  So now I’m addicted.  Yes I know, it sounds crazy and super fattening.  But the whole idea is essentially , you are waking your body up to say ” Oh ya, we are using fat as a fuel source.”  Or for a more detailed version visit Dave Asprey at  bulletproofexec.com.  But her is my version of butter coffee .

Here are your ingredients….

Grassfed ghee (or Kerrygold butter) , organic coffee, collagen peptides and MCT oil or coconut oil.

Why all this stuff you ask?  Grassfed butter is what makes this so yummy, duh. It’s butter.  Of it does.  Organic coffee , obiously is the “cleanest” choice.  Collagen , it’s the building block of nails, skin, hair, bones and joints.  Ya like gelatin, be grossed out if you must.  But my recovery time post workout almost seems improved because my joints aren’t achy anymore.  The MCT or coconut oil promotes high energy, fat loss and brain function.  Uh huh, you heard me brain function

Step one: BREW YOUR COFFEE!  Add about 12 ounces to a blender or I just use a glass quart jar.

Then add one Tbsp each, grassfed butter, MCT or coconut oil (I love the coconut flavor) and Collagen, if you choose, sometimes I add a dash of cinnamon too.  Then I blend it with an immersion blender.  Whip it and whip it good!!!!  Prepare your taste buds for something new, they are gonna freak!

 

You can also make a mocha by adding one Tbsp. Unsweetened cocoa powder, one tsp or more pure maple syrup or honey.  This is soooo good!

Then find your favorite mug….

So what do you think?  Are you going to give it a try?  Don’t be scared and waste time without it like I did. Go on, make your day something big and start it off with a butter coffee!  Let me know what ya think. Would ya?

Korea

I got a text message today from the man of my dreams.  No silly, not George Clooney, I’m talking about the man I married.  He’s on a trip for work, in Seoul, Korea.  He didn’t just text me words of sweet nothings, he sent me pictures of his adventures.  It’s technology grand?  His first pic was from breakfast….I have no idea what he ate, but look at this beautiful cup of Joe.

Isn’t it pretty?  If I were drinking it I would do what I could to retain the art in its original form.  Unless it was super tasty , then I would slurp and gulp in my classy, I MUST HAVE CAFFEINE NOW, totally unrefined , way.   Then the man of my dreams would just give me an eye roll.

He then sent a picture of the view from his hotel .  It’s of Seoul Tower, (wow original name), interesting structure!

image

Kinda cool, don’t you think?  How in a matter of seconds we can send a picture thousands if miles away!  Wow what a crazy world we live in. He decided it was a good idea to hike up there and halfway up he found this

Yes, if your hike isn’t giving you enough of a workout you can stop here and do something with those funky machines.  But if you keep on trucking up that hill….

You get a beautiful view.

Or or you can find this at the top….Seoul Tower.  It’s sort of like the space needle.  A place to view the city and dine.

Maybe one one day my hubby will take me up that hike and we can see it together.  But for now, I’m happy with pics from far away places that  most people don’t get to see in a lifetime.
