5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

Game Nights
Our family loves game night! Game night gives us the opportunity to gather, laugh, and learn together. Sometimes we play together as a family and other times we invite friends over to play with us.

Blue Oak BBQ in Mid-City
My kids and my husband love BBQ. They get BBQ, while I get a salad with Brussels sprouts on top, and we all share the delicious, loaded nachos. My kids love to sit outside at the picnic tables under the twinkling lights.

A Quick Getaway
Bay St. Louis, Mississippi is a quick getaway from New Orleans. Our family enjoys taking the trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to explore the restaurants, the beach, the shops, and the slower pace there. We went last year between Christmas and New Year’s, and we may make a ritual of it.

Friday Play Dates and Snack Boards
My husband is a woodworker, so we love charcuterie boards. Friday afternoons have become our new time to have play dates. We make a snack board with popcorn, fruit, cheese and crackers, and other fun snacks.

Exercise is a big part of my life. It helps me physically and mentally. It has always been one of my greatest stress relievers. I am in my 40s and now more than ever I value the importance of taking care of my bones, joints, and muscles. Clockwork Strength and Performance provides an individualized program that I follow for four-week cycles. It has been life-changing to go to a gym that values injury prevention as much as strength gains.
