Gearing up for the Holidays!

Morning guys! We’re gearing up for the holiday fun over here – see the end of this post for some holiday recipe ideas!

Weekend Adventures

Hello from the train on the way from DC to Philadelphia! I’m heading up for the day for my annual holiday meet up with my college BFFs, Turner and Kris.

Running the Washington DC Christmas Trees

I had the most fun night last night – my friend Sokphal and I decided to do a running tour of the DC Christmas trees – because what better way to see them than on foot, right?! I’ve been wanting to do a Christmas tree run around DC, and great minds think alike because when I was texting with Sokphal earlier this week about having a run date, she Continue Reading …

Long Island Weekend Fun

Hey friends! Matt and I are back in DC after a fun weekend on Long Island! We were in Great Neck, New York for the wedding of one of Matt’s good friends from Pittsburgh; they were roommates in DC with some others after college, too, so our whole DC crew was in attendance, which was awesome. The festivities began on Friday! Matt and I took the Continue Reading …
