Many thanks to eShakti for sponsoring this post! I received a free product in exchange for my honest opinion. I finished my last chemotherapy treatment on October 16th, 2007, three months after my junior year of high school started. After undergoing inpatient treatments for the better part of a year, I was excited to have my hair grow back and regain a bit of normalcy in my life. I soon realized that there was no going back to "normal" after cancer. My whole life had been altered with this one word, this one tumor that had changed who I was and who I wanted to become.

It's been a while since I've chatted about life on here, so I figured that today would be the perfect day to catch up! Dustin, Rosie and I have been in California for three weeks now, and it's finally starting to feel a little bit more like home. For the first few weeks, it felt like we were just on a extra long trip, but now that we're settled into our room at my in-laws house and I found a job (yay!), it beginning to feel a little bit more permanent and real.

Today I'm so excited to be guest posting on The Hallway today! Shannon and I share a passion for health and fitness, and today I am sharing my favorite recipe to replace your high-carb spaghetti dinner! I have always been wary of spaghetti squash, but when my husband and I decided to start making changes to our diet, I knew I needed to work on cutting back on our carbs. We were eating pasta almost every other day! I decided to give spaghetti squash a try, and we couldn't believe how un-squash-like it tasted! It was so yummy! And it really blows my mind how the squash shreds just like spaghetti noodles after it's cooked. If you want to get more details on . . .
If you've been living in a cave and haven't heard of Stitchfix, let me give you a little rundown on how it works. When you sign up for Stitchfix, you pay a 20 dollar style fee (which becomes a credit to go towards any item you may want to keep).
