An American in Canada

I had the pleasure of actually spending some quality time in Vancouver, BC this past week and a half and let me tell you…it has quickly become one of my favorite international cities! The food, fashion, shopping, photography and hospitality are at the top of my list. Here’s a quick overview of my time spent in…

Coming Soon…

I’m going to try and make this short and sweet. No promises 😉  I’ve been unable to share a lot of what I’ve been doing post WWE for a great many reasons.  Some of which I still can’t share, I’m sorry, but trust me…THEY ARE WORTH THE WAIT! 😁 However, I’m now able to share…

Happy 4th Berry Parfait

This is my favorite healthy dessert I’ve ever made. It’s basically the bomb. And super appropriate for your American holidays and parties! It has a little bit of a kick to it too! A little vodka for those who love it…and if not it’s very easily omitted! This also was my first time baking an…

Pointing North

It’s incredibly brave to walk away from a job you really wanted. Harder for some than others. My dream was to be a top TV news anchor. I started working at a small station in Michigan after college. They didn’t have enough hours for me to be full time, so I grabbed as many hours…

Gym: Rules to Lift By

I was at the gym the other day doing crunches on the mat. A man came up next to me sweating heavily and wearing flip flops. He sat beside me, took his flip flops off (now barefoot), put light ankle weights on and lied down placing both sweaty bare feet on the mat. He then…

Clean Turkey Chili

I’ve been a big chili fan for as long as I can remember. I was nervous about switching to Turkey chili when my trainer suggested the healthier change. Ground beef was just what I was used to, but here’s the thing. I actually prefer Turkey now! No interest in beef anymore. Hopefully you’ll feel the…

Island Time

Island Time is a Carribean expression representing a carefree lifestyle where the clock truly doesn’t exist. I’m a huge fan of the Carribean. In fact, I’ve spent a lot of time there in my earlier modeling days. It’s been a little while since getting to go there, but this past week my husband’s best friend got…

Say CHEESE!

Who doesn’t love a good macaroni and cheese?! It’s the ultimate comfort food! I’ve been making Mac and cheese since I was a kid. My mom always made a great baked 5 cheese Mac and cheese and I’ve always been jealous of her talents. So you know I had to go and one up her…

What’s it like?

One of the questions I get most frequently is “so…what’s it like to be married to a wrestler???”  The answer’s probably going to shock you guys. It’s not what you’d think. He doesn’t body slam me on the bed for craps and giggles. He doesn’t go around breaking things or ripping his shirt down the…

Wanna Beat Bobby Flay?

I titled this entry as such because after my husband had one bite of my grilled salmon he said “yep, you can do it.”  I said, “do what?”  Him, “Beat Bobby Flay”. 😂😂😂 Weeeell I dunno about all of that, but I do know that I can grill some fish. And today I’ll be sharing…

Free Yo Mind…

The simple words express so much how I feel this morning heading back home to Texas.  Last night I announced my last match at Scope Arena in Norfolk, VA…trust me guys, Kevin Owens…

Gimme Some Sugar

Today I’m sharing a simple sugar cookie recipe! It’s very easy to make, people tend to vary the amounts of butter and sugar they use when making a classic sugar cookie. I like mine gooey in the center. So that means, the more butter, the better! If you like less, go halvsies on the butter,…

Boots Walkin’ All Over You

I feel like there comes a time in everyone’s life when they feel they’ve been taken advantage of. I think of myself as a pretty good-natured soul. I’m willing to do anything for people most of the time because it makes me feel good and because it’s the right thing. However, quite often I feel…

Ode to Van Gogh

What time is it?? Doesn’t matter, it’s ALWAYS cocktail time at the Texas Rhodes House. I take my cocktails very seriously  I will try anything. But I won’t drink just anything. It’s gotta be smooth and interesting in order for me to indulge. Cody and I arguably make the BEST mojitos in the world. That’s…

Family Ties

Siblings. You grow up together, and then once you grow up things tend to change. You go forward and start living separate lives, and having your own families. In many cases, some move away.  This is the case in my family. I grew up in Michigan, went to college there, and then I quickly realized…

Interracial Couple Crisis

No matter how forward thinking this world claims to be, someone somewhere always finds a way to make it weird for interracial couples. I was reminded of this today while out to eat with my husband (it only starts there.). So if you’re an interracial couple, have fun reading this, rolling your eyes and nodding your…

Fudgey Stuff

Got down in the kitchen again today! So this is an all time favorite recipe o’ mine, that I learned from skating friends back in the day. Their last name is Baker. Coincidence? I think not. Cause this fudgey bar snack is the bomb. And so were they…but they never really told me what in…
