Adventure goals this year: start towards scuba certification (because this snorkeling just isn't cutting it), visit a new to me state, find local spots I haven't explored, visit a new to me country & scrapbook all the things. What are your adventure goals this year?! .

If we can have waffles for brunch then they should totally work for lunch too right? Finally getting my "best gluten free waffle recipe" up on the blog! You truly won't miss the gluten in these crispy, fluffy waffles and they modify well to be dairy free if you need to. .

Adventuring with me: look how gorgeous it is today, let's take a picture / nope you pulled too far forward now the shot is all wrong / well let's just walk over / :watches for snakes: / waits for the clouds / never mind the moment is gone 😂 oh my family is so patient with me #wandeleurspark

The sun peeking behind the clouds today is making the desert look extra spectacular. We are out & exploring around Lake Pleasant today! What is your weekend looking like?! #explore

You didn't think I'd let #nationalpuppyday pass by without me posting one of my puppies did you?! It's like you don't know me at all! 🐶

Made the boys' favorite tonight - easy pasta bake (gf or not). It's SO easy to make and is just a bit better than easy spaghetti. 3c pasta cooked "al dente" , 1lb ground beef (I add salt, pepper, garlic, basil, oregano & thyme), 24oz jar pasta sauce -- mix together and put in a buttered 9x13" casserole. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top & bake for 20 min at 375F -- that's it! I've been making this lately with Trader Joe's red lentil pasta and it works perfectly! I also always buy pasta sauces without extra sugar because I usually like the flavor better! (Printable gf tag on my blog - perfect for parties) #yum

A year or so ago I changed my mindset when buying clothes and it's not about quality or buying the most expensive things. They were conscious thoughts I had when buying items and how to eventually build a wardrobe that's not only perfect for everyday but also for travel! I put all my tips on the blog today & would LOVE to know what you think and/or if you'd like to see more like this. I am definitely NOT a fashion blogger so I wanted to give some tips from my viewpoint!

I am going to miss my photo assistant when he goes to high school next year. What are the chances he'll still have time to help his mom out?! ETA: Later THIS year he's going to high school not next year 😫

Happy first day of Spring! Just spent the day working, running errands & shooting photos in 96 degrees F 😂 Love your job or not, Monday is still Monday #amiright ?! .

Since so many of you chimed in on this one & I finally read it on our last road trip, can we discuss? The wanderlust/adventuring side of me totallly wants to SEE Everest & a little part of me gets the desire to conquer it, but if you can't process what you're seeing/conquering because there is not enough oxygen going to your brain is it worth it? Also, Beck Weathers? That guy... #intothinair #bookstagram #bookofthemonth #travelingram #travelblogger #read #wandeleurspark #flatlay #travel

So happy it's Friday but not looking forward to the amount of house work catching up I have to do! Oh to be one of these two and have not a care in the world except for protecting the house from ground squirrels and hot air balloons. --- What does your weekend look like?! --- #dog #dogsofinsta #pitbull #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #rescuepit #lifestyleblogger #phoenixblogger #darlingmovement
