Chasing the Sun

Fri-yayyy!  I got to sleep in this morning (well, until Riese woke up) - but yesterday I was up with the sun.  It was super ugly outside, as you can see.  Continue Reading …

Surprise Snow

We woke up to some surprise snow on Saturday morning! Perfect morning for an early hot yoga class followed by pancakes.  I topped my pancake with extra blueberries, plain Greek yogurt for protein, and some pecans for fat so that they didn't leave me hungry again a minute later!  I took Riese off to a fun playdate mid morning Continue Reading …

Eats from the Week

Happy Friday! We had some good eats this week.  Breakfasts I was really into avocado toast + hummus toast (same as avocado toast, just with hummus!) this week. Super filling! Another breakfast Riese and I enjoyed a couple times was banana bread with fried eggs and fruit. Another nice, filling combo. Continue Reading …

Spring Fake Out

Matt's parents were in town this weekend! We kicked off the festivities on Friday with a home cooked meal at our place. (As you can see our Christmas cards were table decorations - it has been fun to look at them when we eat!)

We had quite the adventure in Colorado - more on that on Wednesday so stay tuned.  On Sunday morning, I Continue Reading …

Running into the Holiday Spirit

On Wednesday night, something unusual happened: I went for a run! I'm NOT an evening workout person - I can occasionally rally for an evening yoga class, but running in particular is really tough for me to motivate in the evenings, unless there's something extra awesome going on, like: my annual-ish DC Christmas Tree light run with my friend Continue Reading …
