livingsimplistically ::Animal print | Green drink:: The perfect odd couple. My @cortnieelizabeth clutch is by far one of my favorite pieces . Not to mention the print goes with everything! #healthyisthenewblack #cheerstoyourhealth #drinktoyourhealth #moodlifter #greenvibes #animalprint #lovecortnie #latergram #livingsimplistically 7h

livingsimplistically See, the way my life is set-up these days... I have had no coffee since March, but today feels like the perfect day to resume the habit (not gonna do it). Jesus please take the wheel and help me get through these next 6 months. #lifegotmelike #graduationbound #gradschool #life #grownfolkstuff #plateisfull #summercamp #renovations #ineedagetaway #runningaway #calgonkidnapme #livingsimplistically 1d

livingsimplistically It is official, I have no kitchen ! I really hope the 3 weeks the contractors said it would take will really be 3 weeks. While you all are cooking on your hot stove, using your kitchen sink, running your dishwasher and using your chopping board on your counters, please think of me . #renovations #newkitchen #hopeitisworththeinconvenience #chaos #homeowner #summerproject #upgrade #sandwichesfordays #livingsimplistically 1d
  •   livingsimplistically Thank you @michihighlights I really hope so. I didn't realize how much I use my kitchen until now. 1d
  •   b.wellputtogether I would prefers the renovation and the no cooking for 3 weeks. 1d
  •   heartflood Awww. :( I can't wait to see the new one, though! Hahaha I bet you can't either! 1d
  •   michihighlights I can only imagine! The kitchen is where many of us create, and I've seen your pretty meals. Hold tight, girl @livingsimplistically. 1d
  •   l_christova Oh dear, it will difficult, but I'm sure the final result will make it worth the wait! 1d
  •   livingsimplistically @heartflood I am looking forward to the new one too!! @b.wellputtogether I love cooking when I feel like it. Now that I have no kitchen, I feel like it more. @l_christova I am hopeful! 1d
  •   phylligurl Went through this two years ago. The two week estimate was thankfully only five days, but it gave me a new appreciation for cooked food. Hang in there, it will be all worth it in the end. 21h
  •   livingsimplistically Cooked food??? @phylligurl I think it will. It better be! 19h

livingsimplistically AKAs running the Chardonnay 5K are painting the paths pink and green! Kristy, Toni, Pam, me and Robin. We just met Pam (also a member) on the Metra train.

livingsimplistically Today is a pool day for the kids. Now that school is out, our weekends are freed up . Thank goodness for their earlier swimming lessons, the lifeguard is giving the kids a deep water test to make sure they can swim in the deep. Next time I'll join them . #poolday #saturdaydeeds #familytime #swimmers #swimming #health #fitness #kidswhoswim #Chicagoparkdistrict #livingsimplistically #swim #teachyourkidsearly 3d
  •   jacque39 Enjoy, but summer still feel like my daughter is still at school, camp, summer swim league and still have to go to swim practice with her team that she swims for competitively which is all year round, you only get two week break in August 3d
  •   livingsimplistically Eeek! @jacque39 my goodness. Thankfully I have a small reprieve. I have Karate camp, and violin... that is all. For now! @runninginpeace you and the boys are welcome to join us next time. I just realized we will probably be back in 3 weeks due to activities and travel. 3d

livingsimplistically There is something about seeing my husband working with his tools .... The contractors come in on Monday and guess whose kitchen hasn't been demo'd? That would be WE. #kitchenreno #homeimprovement #amanwithtools #kitchen #remodel #myview #homeowners #canimakeonelastmeal #livingsimplistically #duplex #building #amanwithtools #myfixitman #handyman 3d

livingsimplistically My girLS asked if I'd join them in this race tomorrow...a sunset race with wine at the finish?! Oh, yea! I might not actually drink the chardonnay, but I have no problem running knowing the incentive is wine at the finish line while having a blast with my booskies . #workhard #playhard #studybreak #cantherebeamalbecrun #howaboutashirazrun #5K #willrunforagoodtime #sunsetrace #girlsonly #runner #funrun #livingsimplistically 4d

livingsimplistically Well, today is the day...I begin my field placement for my practicum at The American Heart Association . I am beyond thankful for a job that is flexible and supportive in my pursuing my academic goals and doesn't mind sharing me with AHA. #goaldigger #lifelearner #mastersdegree #publichealthstudent #gradschool #publichealth #AmericanHeartAssociation #firstday #practicum #hearthealth #livingsimplistically 4d
  •   livingsimplistically @exquisite2008 Yes I'm planning to. Did you attend last year in New Orleans? I was overwhelmed but really enjoyed the conference. I'll have to check out your presentation so I can meet you. 4d
  •   exquisite2008 Cool! It would be wonderful to meet you . I presented last year as well. I think I found you on Instagram by searching APHA hashtags from last year (yeah that's only slightly nerdy and creepy), lol. The conference is a lot to handle with so many options! 4d
  •   livingsimplistically @exquisite2008 It is a lot. Well I would love to meet you and pick your brain. Navigating through this field seems to be challenging so I would love to hear your experience post-graduation. 4d
  •   exquisite2008 Of course. Perhaps we could do a quick lunch or even dinner. My family (husband and little guy) will be traveling with me as well. We have plenty of time to plan for that. Can I dm you my number and email? 4d
  •   livingsimplistically Will do!! 4d
  •   ninjasforhealth Rad. Good luck! 4d
  •   livingsimplistically Thank you so much @ninjasforhealth 4d

livingsimplistically At first I wasn't too sure about this baby blanket pattern using the puff stitch, but it has grown on me along with my glittery @addi_by_selter hook. I'm a baby blanket making bandit. #knittingbreak #crochet #blankets #babyblanket #handmade #yarnlover #yarnobsessed #imakethangs #handmade #keepsmesane #livingsimplistically 5d

livingsimplistically With only 6 months left before graduating () it has been getting more and more difficult to get my runs in . Today's run was short and to the point, but I did something... #journeyto40 #runningkeepsmesane #running #momswhorun #health #fitness #gradschoolproblems #gradschool #fitmom #livingsimplistically #publichealth 6d

livingsimplistically Houston, we have a Butterfly!! I didn't think this one would make it because the chrysalis fell. I'll give it some sugar water and set it free when I get home That caterpillar to the right is not interested in that butterfly life. #rebel #naturelover #nuture #familysummerprojects #butterflies #pinkladies #growth #evolve #nature #welovenature #setitfree #livingsimplistically 1w

livingsimplistically Repost from @mew.tube. Moral of the story: We all can't be butterflies and we all can't be unicorns. Let us learn to be the BEST selves we can BEE . If the world was filled with all butterflies and unicorns wouldn't it be boring anyway? You are unique and there is no one like you for a purpose, on purpose ! #selflove #motivationmondays #lovethyself #comical #bethebestyou #youareawesome #beyou #thebestyoucanbe #livingsimplistically 1w

livingsimplistically Happy Father's Day to the best DADDY ever . Last night it was an honor to see his work (pictured behind him) up at Gallery Guichard, and hear him speak to the attendees at our chapter anniversary as the featured artist of the evening. Thank you for all you have done and for showing me the proper way a man should treat his wife. You set the standards high and I am happy to have found a life partner that almost meets that standard. #wehonoryou #todayandeveryday #fathersday #mydaddy #photographer #artist #bestdad #livingsimplistically 1w

livingsimplistically Today is the final day of my husband's secret agent themed Father's Day and I must say, it has been a hit 😎. Today, I will be driving him to his secret operation, which is an afternoon at the spa. He deserves every bit! I just served him breakfast in bed and picked out his clothes for the day 😧 . #fathersday #honorourmen #theyworkhard #secretagent #lovemyman #marriagerocks #marriageisfun #lifepartner #livingsimplistically 1w

livingsimplistically With no husband and no kids at home, I was in the mood to run and see things. I hit up my favorite places: my favorite park, the AKA National Office, and the Museum of Science and Industry. My body is SO happy I got those 5.5 or 6.5 miles in 😎 Thanks #Nikerunning for technical burp that only tracked 2 miles of my mileage and won't allow me to edit my run . #journeyto40 #runningmomma #thankingmyselfforthatrun #AKAsrun #runtellthat #runner #rundone #metime #justmeandGod #meditativerun #momswhorun #health #fitness #livingsimplistically 1w
