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 …

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!

Forearm Balance Success

Exciting news - yesterday at yoga I did my first forearm balance in nearly 3 years (since getting pregnant with Riese) - whoa!  I was at my old fave Edge Yoga in Arlington - the instructor, Rebecca, is one of my faves because she's great at challenging you to try new and different poses (but in a positive, uplifting way). I hadn't Continue Reading …

Red Pepper Thief

Hi friends!  We've had some yummy meals this week - one of the highlights was this Spanish-esque shrimp and rice dish.  It was a Sun Basket meal (we are still alternating between Blue Apron and Sun Basket (<- fyi those are both affiliate links for deals on your first boxes if you interested) each week, depending which Continue Reading …

Energized

Hey friends! I'm glad many of you enjoyed my 10 year blogging anniversary trip down memory lane/Q&A blog post! I had fun writing that and reminiscing... it's hard to believe it has been so long but it also feels like a bazillion years ago when I had just started my blog and was writing those early posts! Lots has changed since then. Continue Reading …

10 Years of Blogging Q&A + Greatest Hits

File this under things I can't believe: as of last week, I've officially been blogging for 10 years!  Wow.  photo credit When I first started my blog, I was in the middle of taking prerequisites and applying to grad schools to become a Registered Dietitian. I had just moved back to DC after teaching English in Prague for a year Continue Reading …
