Biking the Potomac & Salads at Sweetgreen

When I was packing to come up to D.C., I checked the weather and saw it was going to be especially gorgeous yesterday, on Saturday. I decided to throw my bike in the car and take advantage of the opportunity to hit up some DC trails! I went out yesterday morning without any real thoughts on how far I wanted to go — I just figured I’d see how Continue Reading …

An Easter Brunch Feast & A Daffodil Run!

Good morning! I’m back in Chapel Hill feeling refreshed after my nice relaxing weekend in Pittsburgh. It was SO worth it to spend all last week busting my butt so I could take the weekend off from homework! Only 1.5 weeks until I’m done with my first YEAR of grad school. Bring it, finals! I hope you all had a nice (Easter, if you celebrate Continue Reading …

Bike Pittsburgh

Hello from Pittsburgh! It was supposed to be super gross and rainy out all day today, but we got lucky! Apparently Matt and I brought the sun with us from NC :) Matt, his parents, and I all headed into the city today to explore by bike! There are trails stretching along the river on both sides — so nice! Matt’s parents brought Continue Reading …

Signing up for my first triathlon!

Goooooooooooood morning! Guess what I just did? Signed up for my very first triathlon! :) I signed up for the Swim for Smiles Sprint Triathlon on July 24, 2011, right here in Chapel Hill! And guess what? Matt’s going to do it with me, too! :) I think it will be a great first triathlon to do because it’s super low pressure. It’s a Continue Reading …

The Perfect Sunday

Yesterday was just about the perfect Sunday — it involved playing with Tina, ice cream at Maple View Farm, and biking with Matt in the beautiful NC sunshine (which rudely hid until Tina left, lame)! (Disregard the awkward self-timer photo, heh) Our day began in Carrboro, the cute hippie town right next to Chapel Hill. I took Tina to one of my Continue Reading …

Sand Volleyball for the win!

Good afternoon, friends! Another Biochem exam has come and gone… even though I felt like I was really prepared for this one, I still don’t think I did all that great on the test. Sigh. Oh well, it’s over, right?! :) Minus studying flash cards, I had a fantastic rest of my weekend and I hope you all did, too! The weather was beautiful Continue Reading …

Whole Wheat Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins

Who says vegan baked goods aren’t awesome? Not me, that’s for sure. I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet! When I was first getting into the healthy living realm and learning to cook back in 2006/7, this recipe was one my very first creations. I used to work for a government contractor back before I left to teach English Continue Reading …

Biking with Llamas

Best blog post title, ever. Yesterday, Matt and I went biking… and stumbled upon a llama farm. Yes, a llama farm. Is that not the most random thing ever?! Let’s start from the beginning. ;) As I mentioned, last week Matt and I bought our very first road bikes! We both really like biking and used to bike together occasionally in DC, but Continue Reading …
