Winter-y Weekend

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. :) Continue Reading …

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 …

I’ve attended the conference many 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 …

It's officially November, so that means we can go crazy on the pumpkin and squash recipes, and the holiday-themed recipes, right? Enter, biscuits with a fall twist: Butternut Squash Parmesan Biscuits! (Also of interest: Healthy Pumpkin Recipes for Fall + Best Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes) I love my biscuits - especially with eggs. But I'd Continue Reading …

Visitors + Gloves

This weekend I had a special treat: my friend Kris was here visiting! 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

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 …
