A New Haircut & Healthy Living on the Cheap

1 Dec

Hey party people.


It is 12:50a on a Saturday morning.  & I am on the couch with Freckles watching a Girls marathon.  With Jameson.


& I couldn’t be happier.  I have been so busy for the past few months that it is nice to just lay around, work on the blog and watch mindless TV.  <3


On that note, do you like the new theme?  I’m digging it.  A little bit more subtle but still me.


Also, I have updated my About Me page, Races page and Restaurant Review page – check them out!


& guess what?


I got a haircut!  Do you like?  Obviously, this is after laying around on the couch for a couple of hours with the dog but you get the idea.  I am a fan.


Now onto my new challenge -



Healthy Living on the Cheap!

So BLC and I have decided that we need to be a bit more frugal with our money.  We are grown-ups after all.  We tend not to really watch what we spend and sometimes it can get out of control.


Since we are no experts at budgeting, I thought it would be a good idea to ask the help of my fellow Sweat Pink and Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors.  I threw my idea out there on our Facebook forum today and was so excited by the response I got!


So I am turning this into a series!  I plan on getting the girls who volunteered to help me out to answer some questions and feature 1-2 of them a week.  Get excited for healthy, budget friendly meals and budget friendly workouts as well as some overall budget tips from some amazing women.  Plus, I plan on documenting our budget journey right here on HLHW!


I’m pretty excited about this.  Hope you are, too!

    I love weekends as adults – no pressure to be somewhere, wear “real” clothes or stay out past midnight! I’m digging the new ‘do, too. I’m always looking for ways to simplify our spending habits. We spend the bulk majority of our budget on good food (and wine) and I’m curious to hear how others make it work.

      Me too! Definitely why I reached out to others to see what their tips are!
