Hey friends! 

It has been feeling quite winter-y lately, but I’m enjoying it – the fresh, cold air feels so good when running!

My friend Kathleen and I got in another nice run this weekend – 5 miles, check!

I felt a little sluggish so I was especially glad to have a buddy to chat with to make the miles go by more easily. :)

Mini Vacations

I'm a big fan of the "mini vacation" - anyone else? Meaning, an hour or two that feels like vacation but that's close to home (or even at home) and doesn't involve travel or anything big. I had two mini vacations this week, which was a big (and unusual) treat!  The first was a run date with Matt (without a stroller!) - he had Monday off Continue Reading …

This is good news because today I would like to present to you this Savory Sweet Potato Casserole recipe, just in time for your Thanksgiving dinner planning. ;) But have no fear - if you're team sweet, Continue Reading …

Things That Were Awesome This Week

1) This morning's sunrise run.  It was "38, feels like 28" and WHOA that wind when we turned back for home... but so worth it. You know you are on the same page with your running buddy when you text "Let's meet even earlier than we need to so we don't miss the sunrise" and they are on board. ;)  Continue Reading …

She was speaking at a conference in DC on Friday and stuck around to hang out with us. :) It's so nice having a guest room again so people can stay with us!  She arrived at our place in time for a late dinner on Friday - we hung out with Matt and Riese for a bit Continue Reading …

First Legit Halloween + Easy Eats

2 year old healthy snack ideas

Hi friends! We had fun last night for Riese's first legit Halloween - I mean, we had Halloween with her last year but she slept through most of it and definitely didn't walk around in a costume, so this felt like the first! Weirdly she didn't find the whole thing that weird and just kind of went along with walking up to people's doors and Continue Reading …

Philly Food Fun

I spent the past few days in Philadelphia for FNCE, the massive annual conference for Registered Dietitians. I need to take some time to digest everything before sharing my thoughts on some of the educational sessions I attended, so for now I wanted to just pop in and share some photos of the food I had while in the city! I arrived at FNCE Continue Reading …

Another race is in the books! Matt and I ran the Marine Corps 10k together yesterday and had a soggy but fun time out there.  I was hoping the weather forecast would improve, but sadly when our alarm went off and we peeked outside it was raining. The rain continued on our Lyft ride down to the race start! Continue Reading …
