Weekend recap + Cyber Monday Deals

Hey my friends – I’m starting off this workweek feeling quite relaxed after our nice long holiday weekend! On Friday night, we had Thanksgiving dinner take 2 – hooray for leftovers. It was just as delicious the second time around. Thankfully we also had some pie and ice cream leftover. :) Pumpkin pie = one of my absolute favorite desserts! Continue Reading …

Thursday Randomness

Hi guys! Thank you for your kind words on yesterday’s post about why you’ll be seeing gluten free dinners (and meals) on the blog a lot more often for awhile. As for today, I’ve got a TON of random and unrelated things to share, so we’re doing it list style. I’ll get right into it! 1) The 3 musketeers/workout gang is back together!! I’ve been Continue Reading …

Weekend

Hey guys! I hope you had nice weekends. I got back to DC on Friday afternoon after a great trip to San Diego! It was hard to say goodbye to the ocean – I spent Thursday with my toes in the sand (and the water), which is one of my favorite things in the world. It was unseasonably hot in San Diego last week – perfect for the beach! But as sad Continue Reading …

Non-Marathon Weekend Adventures

Morning! As you guys have probably already seen on Instagram – I made it! I finished the Marine Corps Marathon yesterday. :) I’m so, so proud to have earned this medal – this was a really tough race. I didn’t get my PR (or anywhere near it!), but it’s all good – I’m still really pumped to be able to say I’ve now run the Marine Corps Marathon! Continue Reading …

Eats/Exercise + Seattle Bound

Hey guys! It’s been a busy week making sure I’m all caught up on work before leaving town again today (see what I’m up to at the end of the post)! After being so exhausted at my track workout on Tuesday I’ve stuck with yoga the rest of the week – I hit up another yoga class yesterday morning rather than doing a run, which felt wonderful. Just what Continue Reading …

Run, Yoga, Eat, Repeat

Hello, hello! Even though the weather randomly feels a bit more like summer than fall this week, we’re still enjoying some soup. Anyone else? Matt made a variation of my Veggie-tastic Minestrone Soup (<—recipe) for us last week – so good. It was even more delicious because we used homemade broth! Matt made the broth from the bones of a Continue Reading …
