Life Lately:

I have been traveling SO MUCH lately. I’ve missed you all! So, let’s catch up on recent travels real quick! 

A few weeks ago I was in Atlanta visiting friends and attending a Beautycounter event! I met these inspiring ladies that I am so proud to call co-workers and friends!

Atlanta


Then I was in Charleston with Cassy, Vanessa, Juli, and Stacy! Charleston is SERIOUSLY so cute. Here are some Charleston recommendations: Husk, Butcher and Bee, The Obstinate Daughter, Zero George, Fig, The Ordinary, Eli’s Table, 167 Raw, The Grocery, The Darling Oyster Bar, Cru Cafe, Another Broken Egg Cafe, Prohibition for cocktails and live swing music, Fleet Landing Restaurant & Bar, Live Jazz at Bar Mash.

Most recently, I was in Ithaca, New York (and I can’t wait to go back) glamping at Firelight Camps celebrating my good friend Gina and all of her hard work on her newest cookbook, Skinnytaste One and Done! 

Skinnytaste Ithaca NY

We had the best time, and I left inspired, motivated, and with a full heart from quality time with these amazing, caring, talented, and giving ladies! Check them out, and make sure to follow their blogs, too!

Life Lately:

We rented a house a few towns over by the lake for the month of August for a few reasons, but are absolutely LOVING it. Look at this view. Jax loves swimming in it every day, and I love relaxing by the serene lake. It’s also kind of fun doing the commute life again, and working at my real house! 

Summer Sunset

Jax turned 4! I cannot believe we got our sweet boy 4 years ago. He’s such a good dog and for sure my first baby, aka spoiled with love 🙂

Jax turns 4

I visited York, Maine for the first time with my friends at Stonewall Kitchen and had the best time meeting some amazing bloggers, eating great food, and learning about that truly amazing company.

And here are the amazing ladies from the trip! Check them out: 

Stonewall Kitchen Event

Then I attended an awesome brunch in Boston with my friends at Vital Farms and I am so excited to work with them to explain to you all WHAT eggs are the best to buy – since there’s so much information and misinformation out there!! Look how gorgeous this table set up was!!!!

Vital Farms Brunch

Otherwise, as an update from this blog post, I am feeling pretty good. Working on my detox protocol, Lyme protocol, doing as much as I can to heal my body, and mentally in a great space with it all. I appreciate your love and concern with all of this, along with all the well wishes and good vibes you sent me. I am so happy I decided to share what was going on with all of you. It was really cathartic and I am just so grateful for this community.

First of all, HAPPY JUNE. I can’t believe it’s June already. My CSA starts this month, it’s officially feeling like summer here in Boston, and man, it feels good!

Let’s get to this week’s Beyond The Kitchen! Life lately has been fairly low key, and I like it!  This little (okay, big) monkey got a haircut and is looking super cute! P.S. He carries his carrot everywhere. So dang adorable! 

Jax haircut May 2018

We spent some quality time this past weekend in New York at my moms with family, and it was so much fun. Jax and Nanny (who turns 95 this summer) are snuggle buddies. He wants to be wherever she is! It’s so beyond sweet.

Nanny and Jax

My little cousin/nephew is the most fun ever. At the end of the night we snuggled while he watched Finding Nemo and got ready for bed. Baby snuggles are the best ever.

Snuggles with my buddy

We had friends in town and had a super fun dinner at Yvonne’s in Boston. I highly recommend this spot! Tip: make a reservation well in advance! 

Friends Visiting

Otherwise we are just enjoying the warmer weather, being outside more, and making plans for Summer!!

Break The Stigma:

I’ve been sharing on Instagram stories about how much I value going to therapy and just wanted to throw it on here that it should not be taboo, embarrassing, weird, or whatever connotation you may have with it! Therapy is an amazing resource that can be so beneficial, in my opinion, for everyone. Remember that every single person has their stuff, regardless of how perfect Instagram may often look 😉 #BREAKTHESTIGMA

Also, I’m going to do a larger post on this, so if you have ANY questions (how to find a therapist, etc.) feel free to comment below, or if they are private, email me at lexi@lexiscleankitchen.com. These will be kept anonymous!


Thank you for reading and for being here!

This month has been busy, busy, busy!

Before Thanksgiving, I had a big video shoot and they’re all coming your way in the next number of weeks! They are cooking show style, which I’m super excited about!

After Thanksgiving, we headed off to a much anticipated planned trip to Morocco!  We had the absolute best time visiting Fes and Marrakech, and I’ll be sharing all about our trip next week on the blog!

*The new travel camera happened because my water bottle exploded in my purse with my older Panasonic in it… not fun! Absolutely loving this Sony though!

From there, I came straight to New York to help my mom who had a hip replacement surgery on Monday. So, I’ve been working from her kitchen this week! Don’t worry, Jax is here with me! So is my nanny, who is here recovering from a broken pelvis at 94! It’s been quite the few months around here.

Even though the holidays are still approaching, I’m gearing up for a big 2018, which is kicking off with a month long Clean Eating Challenge, new series, and so much more (personally and professionally)!

NY Trip, Summer in Boston, Celebrating Life of a Friend

Life has been a little crazy lately. We traveled to NY to celebrate the engagement of two friends and had a blast. We’ve been enjoying summers in Boston and the fresh, delicious seafood that New England has to offer. I think it’s time I do a post on my favorite spots in Boston! We tried Venezia and it was AMAZING. Awesome food, great service.

We’ve been trying to grieve the sudden loss of a great friend of ours and celebrate his life the best we can. It’s hard to post business-as-usual when something so tragic hits our lives. It’s been a really hard week and we are trying to hold up the best we can. A reminder to love fiercely, and be so so kind- every single day. Tell those important to you that you love them. Life is too short and can be so unfair. I’ve been grateful for your kind words over on my Instagram post last week. Also a reminder that sometimes you see the best of people of social media and think their lives are perfect. Trust me, nobody’s life is perfect. Always a good thing to remember when scrolling through your feeds. As always, thank you for being the absolute best. This community is truly amazing.

Jax turned THREE.

How did this little nugget turn into this big nugget? Man, I love this dog so much. Read more here.

One Year of Marriage!

We celebrated one whole year of being married with a lovely dinner at Capital Grille. I mean, they went above and beyond. Rose petals on the table, champagne to start, a dessert platter. It was so so nice. Now we’re off to Nashville for more celebrations! Thanks to all of your recommendations on Facebook we are jam-packed. Nashville travel guide coming SOON.

Throwback!

Life Lately:

Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s about to be the end of July. Where is the summer going? It’s flying, that’s for sure! This month has been busy, busy, busy. I traveled back and forth to New York for a few weeks to help my mom recover from her knee surgery, and then had a little travel going on!

Norwich Inn Spa

Before my Austin trip this past weekend, I spent a few days at the Norwich Inn Spa for our annual girls trip! It was so much fun and so relaxing. We always do dinner at Mohegan Sun which is super close by, so we spa all day, then do dinner and drinks at night! Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse was seriously amazing!

Norwich Inn Spa 2017

The workout we did at the spa gym:

Austin, TX 

I spent last weekend in Austin with a few of my favorite girlfriends- Cassy, Juli, and Vanessa, and our Siete foods family! We stayed in an amazing AirBnb, ate awesome food, and had countless laughs! You guys, I bought cowboy boots from Allen’s Boots (see below) and am seriously in love. Also, I signed a few copies of my cookbook at the Barnes and Noble on Brodie Lane, so go snag them before they’re gone!

We ate at: Picnik (multiple times), Fresa’s, 24 Diner, Flower Child, Veracruz All Natural, Fortright Cafe, and an amazing cookout at Siete Foods HQ!

We stayed: In an AirBnB, and if you saw our IG stories, our last night we stayed in a hotel like 30 minutes outside of the city thanks to Vaness. It was hysterical.

Workouts: We did a workout made up by coach Ju (Juli) at Siete HQ and did a Crush Fitness class and they were both awesome. I was sufficiently sore! Also, shout out to Outdoor Voices for hooking us up with a pair of workout leggings!
