Grain-free and stuffing just don’t seem like two words that even make sense in the same sentence, let alone the same recipe! But, let me tell you, this recipe is the bees knees and hits all the amazingness that is stuffing. I mean stuffing IS the reason I show up for Thanksgiving dinner. It is what keeps me munching on leftovers long after the plates have been cleared and the last crumb of pie licked clean.Read more “Cleaning Eating: Delicious Grain-Free Stuffing Recipe”
It’s December! Around here, we love the start of December because it really feels like winter’s kick-off even though we have a few weeks to go. Here in Colorado, the snow got an early start, granting us the first white Thanksgiving we can remember! And that means there has been enough snow for some legitimate skiing…those were some amazing early season turns! Thank you Mother Nature!Read more “How to Make this a Season of Giving with Your Family”
Well, this doesn’t sound a lot like helping us find the joy of winter or how much fun it is to ski with your kids or a ski resort review. No, you’re right, it doesn’t!! But, I am really excited to expand Snow Happy and the topics we cover. As you know, I feel really strongly that we have a responsibility to protect where we play…as in the environment. A part of that is using cleaner, less toxic or non-toxic products on our bodies and in our homes. I am also believe that being “Snow Happy” means we are living our best life…the healthiest in mind, body and spirit.Read more “How to Get Started with Clean Skin Care: An Introduction to Beautycounter”

“Make good gear that works for the fun stuff they (and their friends) like to do.” It’s right on the Flylow website, plain and simple. Good gear that works. It’s what I look for when I shop for things, especially to weather the literal storm. When you spend your days outside enjoying all that winter has to throw at you, it requires some solid threads.Read more “Gear Review: Flylow Women’s Daisy Insulated Pants”
Here I am friends, Day 10 of running a mile each day and working on Snow Happy everyday! Lets recap…I decided about two weeks ago to commit to something challenging for me. One of those things is running. I live a healthy, active lifestyle, but running is something that has been hard (like really hard) for me to stay consistent. I like it, I feel good after, but the mental game is strong (more on that later). Second, Snow Happy. I want to give you all, my community, my peeps more to read about, more positive light in the world, and I was letting life get in the way of that.Read more “What Happens if you do Something for 100 days?

Guys, I did it! Earliest I have ever skied, November 14th, and coincidentally, the earliest Eldora has ever opened in two decades! Snow Happy friends, it did NOT disappoint. Sunny skies, soft snow and NO wind. Eldora Mountain is a ski resort near Denver and Boulder, outside the small mountain town of Nederland. It’s a quick and beautiful drive from Snow Happy Headquarters in Southwest Denver.Read more “My First Day of Skiing 2019/2020: Eldora”
This is the absolute earliest I have ever skied. November 14th, I made everybody breakfast, packed lunches, took everyone in early for their Spanish class, ran my day 6 mile of my 100 Days of Something Challenge, tossed my skis, boots, and bag in the car and hit the road to Eldora. Sounds pretty simple, right? And, with the right prep and system in place, it totally can be, even with kids in tow. Yes, that’s right, even with kids in tow.Read more “How to Have a Great First Day Skiing”
“I’ll get to it later” or “after I finish this one thing”…Sound familiar? For me, it’s a daily battle…for whatever “it” is. I am disciplined about a few things: my workouts, cooking healthy food, making kids lunches and making my bed everyday. It sounds like a lot (and it is) until I look at how I spend the rest of my day…errands that turn into a time such because “oh, I’ll just stop here” (two hours later), social media and other online distractions, reading (not bad, but a rabbit hole for me), and you can fill in the blank on your time sucks. So what’s getting left in the dust? Snow Happy and building my business, hiking, running organizing and cleaning, taking classes, and the list goes on.Read more “Build Your Habit Muscle: Do Something for 100 days”
Are you starting to plan or starting to think about planning your ski adventures yet? Well, Snow Happy is! If I’m being honest, planning the next season for us starts on the chair lift the season prior…kind of like planning your next meal while sitting in a restaurant enjoying an amazing meal. I may be known to do this.Read more “Ride the Amtrak Ski Train to Winter Park this Season!!”
