You got this! Go be fierce!!! xoxo
30 years ago today I walked down the aisle toward my future. I could never have predicted the life we have made together. I just knew it would always be interesting! This man...my husband...makes me laugh everyday, supports and loves me unconditionally, and is the best partner and friend I could ask for. Happy Anniversary John McBride. #30th
My upcoming summer shows are officially less than a month away! Can’t wait to see all of you lovely people on the road! Tix available w/ link in bio.
These girls are my whole heart. Being their mother is a privilege and blessing that I never take for granted. Happy Mother’s Day.
Have you tried Menu’d yet?! Tell me what your favorite feature is in the comment section below for a chance to win a signed copy of Around The Table. We’ll pick one winner at random!
This is a delicious soup if you’re trying to eat clean and healthy. Ground beef or turkey, green beans, celery, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, spinach, parsley, garlic, onion, tomatoes, and water It’s even better the second day so it makes a perfect lunch to take to work. I love to sprinkle it with cayenne pepper for an extra kick. You can find the recipe in my Menud app. Link in my bio. Follow me there for lots of my recipes and to take the stress out of meal planning! Enjoy!
Made it home safely!
I've waited a long time to do an app. I wanted to find something I was really passionate about. Well I found it! Today is the day I get to share it with you! I'm so excited to officially launch my meal-planning app, Menu'd! Menu'd saves time, stress, and money when it comes to planning dinner. Listen, we've all rushed to the grocery store at the last minute with no list and no idea what to make for dinner. Or we stare at the fridge hoping something will just magically appear. I've been there so many times! When we're hungry and stressed we tend to reach for the quickest thing we can get our hands on. This is when we cave and go through the drive-through or order in. But not only is that way more expensive than buying and making fresh food, it usually is food that is high in sodium (hello bloating) and fat. I'm a big believer in moderation and balance in life. I don't deprive myself if I occasionally crave something that's a little on the questionable side of healthy. But I also am a believer in you are what you eat, and most of the time I try to eat food that gives my brain and body nourishment, prevents disease, and just makes me feel better. I want to help you do that too. And don't worry, healthy eating to me isn't all just rabbit food. Actually the recipes I submitted are recipes I cook in my real life, so there's a mixture of healthy, and some that we've modified to be healthier, but you still get recipes like Creamy Tarragon Chicken and Steak Fajita Bowls with Garlic Lime Rice! And there are plenty of vegetarian options and most can be made vegan as well. So let's do this! Download my app from the app store, follow me, and you will see recipes that I actually make in my kitchen (I'm telling you, these are some of my favorite recipes). You will get new recipes and meal plans each month! Once you choose and pin your recipes we will push all the ingredients to a grocery list for you! How easy is that? Click on the link in my bio to get started. I'm so excited to take this journey with you!
You got this! #mondaymotivation
Gorgeous day in Nashville! Happy Spring!
My notes from the reading of Dr. Maya Angelou’s stirring poem, Still I Rise. I was so moved to be asked to be a part of honoring her on her 90th birthday with Google Doodle, along with @aliciakeys @oprah @americaferrera @lavernecox and Dr. Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson. Maya went out of her way to make me feel special. She came to Nashville to surprise me by introducing me at what was, at the time, the Flameworthy Awards. She introduced me by phone when I was honored by NARAS as she was stranded by severe weather. And she invited me to her home in North Carolina to speak at her 82nd birthday party. I’m not sure why she was so giving to me but I am grateful for every second I spent with her. She touched so many lives. And her words will live on forever, touching and inspiring generations to come. Link in bio.
I count myself blessed to be chosen to be a part of this beautiful tribute to Dr. Angelou on this special day. Being around her was powerful and inspiring and I am forever grateful for the time I got to spend with her. #GoogleDoodle #StillIRise #sponsored 🔗 in bio!
Happy Birthday to my sweet Emma. You came into this world and changed my life forever...for the better. You have always had big dreams and an even bigger heart and I’m so proud of you for following both. It seems like yesterday that I was holding you close in this photo. I hold you like this every day in my heart. I love you. #20
#HappyBdayStevenTyler @iamstevent It was a thrill and an honor to get to share your stage and to just be in your presence. Your energy is contagious and, obviously, you make me smile. xoxo
Happy Monday! You got this! Love, Martina
Happy #nationalpuppyday to this little nugget. #mae #maltipoo

Please ignore the fact that I need a manicure. But do notice that I’m posting this on my regular Instagram...not my insta story that disappears in 24 hours. And also notice that I started this book in the bathtub and I couldn’t even wait until I got out to post a picture. To all my loves, please, please, please read this book. I’d love to buy 100 copies of this book and hand it out to everyone I encounter (I just might do this). It’s wise. It’s funny. It’s inspiring. It’s necessary. No matter where we are on our life journey...especially our creative journey...we all need to have the wisdom and support of this book. Thank you @elizabeth_gilbert_writer (I hope this is you...this is the thing on the back of the book but no blue checkmark so I’m hoping...) for writing this. I’m so grateful that I decided to read more books in 2018. And grateful that I stumbled upon this in a bookstore at LAX. I should mention I’m only on page 31! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the book has in store. xoxo
What a great Valentine’s dinner. John was working in the studio :( but Delaney came over and helped cook for me, her, and Ava. We put on music and made pasta and pizza (I know! All the carbs!) and grilled chicken. And we had homemade hand dipped strawberries for dessert.
Happy Valentine’s Day to my one and only.
I know that this queso and chips isn’t what I should eat every day. Or even a few times a week. What I do know is that this is what I want with every fiber of my being right now. And I’ve eaten healthy all day. And I’ll eat healthy (hopefully) tomorrow. But I think life is about balance and moderation. Not deprivation. And right now this is what my soul needs for balance and moderation. And I’m going to savor and enjoy every single bite. #quesodontcare
Found these videos of these amazing girls singing along with me in the car! Happy Monday indeed! #CarpoolKaraoke
Y’all make sure to tune into @siriusxm this weekend to hear me talk about the Beatles and sing one of my favorite Beatles songs!
