Hello my friends! I’m on my way back to DC right now from quite the adventure, as most of you have seen via Instagram!

On Saturday morning, my friend Kathleen and I met up for a 10 mile run. The forecast didn’t call for snow until noon or after, so we figured by meeting up at 9:45 we’d have plenty of time to get in the run before the white stuff started falling. Right? Ummmm, yeah.

It was REALLY cold (24 degrees, “feels like 12” when I woke up), but the sunrise halfway through the workout was well worth it. The crazy cold doesn’t bother me as much as crazy hot does – it’s really hard to get out of bed Continue Reading …

Hello my friends! Who all watched the Super Bowl last night? Matt and I headed over to a friend’s place to watch the action, although I was mostly interested in the commercials. :) What was your favorite commercial? Some of them were a little intense… I loved the puppy one, though – it made me tear up! Anyway! We had a low key weekend. Continue Reading …
