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 …

Walleyball Fail and a New Bike!

Well, friends… last night’s Walleyball game was not pretty. Apparently there are teams in the league that: a) Actually know how to play Walleyball, and b) Are really serious and hardcore about it and possibly trying to kill us with their insanely intense spikes from the net. I seriously almost got killed like 3 times. These girls were Continue Reading …

Just when I thought I avoided getting sick…

Well friends… it’s official. Just when I thought I might have avoided the sickness that Matt and all my friends were laid out with last week… BAM. I’m sick :( I’m not sure if it’s food poisoning (I had a burger at a restaurant last night and now never want one again) or some sort of flu (it’s very similar to what Matt had, except I Continue Reading …
