About Me

Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Alexis, I am a twenty something year old from California, now living in Utah with my handsome husband and adorable son.

Scott & I had the classic whirlwind romance--we met, fell madly in love, got married (we eloped), and had a baby all within the year!

Our munchkin (3 months old when I posted the first pic) is now 18 months!! and we are expecting a baby girl in April! Our family is growing & so much is changing so quickly it's hard to believe. 

For the past year, Scott & I have been following the IIFYM diet. It got a little boring in the beginning when we were just making the same bland things over & over again, but then I realized if we were going to keep this up our meals had to do more than just meet our macro goals, they needed to taste good too. I started mixing up our foods and creating new recipes and this "diet" has been a breeze ever since. 

In January 2016 I decided to start posting more of these Healthy Recipes we've been eating, in hopes that they can help others meet their nutrition goals as well. 

My goal is to post our recipes along with my normal Mom/Marriage & dating content about 3 times a week. So stay tuned!

  1. Hi Lexi! I'm Kristine from The Blue Blanket and wanted to pop over to say Hi! I am at the exact stage you're at. I just started at the end of March and am struggling with my stats too. btw, I saw your comment from the 'To the discouraged blogger'. Being at the same stage, I'd love to connect with you and maybe we could get a few others at the same stage as we are to form a little group to help each other out! I know of another blogger that did the same and she is VERY successful. She's the reason I got into this. Five months ago I didn't even know what a blog was. Never knowing all the web sites I go to ARE blogs! lol :) If it's not something you'd be interested in, no prob! But I hope to hear from you.
    Kristine :)

    1. Definitely! Learning with people at the same stage would be a heck of a lot better than the current go-it-alone process I'm using right now lol

    2. All I can see is that your blogs are older than today! Maybe I need to spend more time searching your archives. One HUGE problem on Pintrest, some blogs come and go.
      Hope this message finds you all healthy and well!

  2. Hello! My name is Pam from Home on the Corner blog. I have been nominated for a Liebster Award and would like to nominate you too!
