Morning Run + Recent Lunches

Morning - I kicked off my Thursday with a run! A little humid out there but definitely way cooler than it was a few weeks ago... I'll take it! My friend Chelsea and I met up for some early morning miles around Arlington. 2.5 miles seems to be my sweet spot right now - anything more than that on a weekday feels like too much. I'm hoping to Continue Reading …

Cape May Girl’s Weekend Part 2

Morning! I'm back with part 2 of my girl's weekend adventures in Cape May, NJ. When I left off in part 1 (check that out first if you missed it!), we had just had brunch and were getting ready to head to the beach! It was in the 70s and sunny with low humidity - absolute perfection. Originally we weren't sure it would be warm enough for the beach, Continue Reading …

Girl’s Weekend in Cape May: Part 1

Hi guys! I'm back from my girl's weekend away! It was such a treat to have some adult time with two of my favorites - it had been ages since the three of us got together. I was in Cape May, NJ with two of my best friends from college, Turner (nickname) and Kris. Despite the photo below we were not at a wedding - apparently there was one at Congress Continue Reading …

Friday Faves

Hi guys! Happy Friday :) Thanks for your helpful comments on my 10 month baby update post yesterday! I'm popping in today with some Friday faves before I head off on a big adventure (more on that at the end of this post). Here are a few random things I'm loving lately: 1) The podcast "By the Book."  Continue Reading …

10 Month Baby Update

Riese turned 10 months old on Monday! She is looking like such a big girl these days - it's weird that she is now much closer to a toddler than she is to a newborn. I say this all the time, but, ahhhh, cue the tears - my little baby is growing up! (I know, I know, wait until she's off to college, you say...) She loves knocking down blocks now so Continue Reading …

Recent Eats + Exercise

Hi guys! Popping in with some food and fitness highlights from the past few days. Let's start with food - specifically BBQ! Matt, Riese, our friend Shane, and I hit up Rockland's BBQ on Saturday for a (super) early dinner and it was delicious. Besides the BBQ and baked beans, I really love their vinegar-y cucumber salad - super tangy! Next Continue Reading …

Birthday Recap

Hi guys! As I mentioned, Friday was my birthday! It started with breakfast in bed. :) Matt and I do this every year for each other - fun tradition! The tray was a wedding gift I think and has all sorts of different paper inserts for various holidays. Matt took the day off work for my birthday; it was such a nice treat to get to spend my Continue Reading …

Eats + Exercise

Hi guys! I kicked off my Thursday with a early morning run date - nice way to start the day! My buddy Chelsea and I decided the weather was finally cool enough for a weekday run date - hizzah! My first postpartum race (the Marine Corps 10k) is coming up in a month... eek! I've been running once a week consistently (usually 3 or 4 miles), Continue Reading …

Weekend Finale

homemade brunch

If you missed part 1 and part 2 of our long weekend trip to PA, check those posts out first! We drove back to DC from Pittsburgh on Sunday, but before we did, we kicked off our day with a nice brunch with Matt's parents. French toast + bacon + hard boiled eggs + watermelon. It was nice enough to sit outside and Riese was napping so we took Continue Reading …

PA Weekend

Hi guys! As you know from Friday's blog post, we spent the second part of last week and the weekend up in Sewickley, PA, outside Pittsburgh, visiting Matt's family. Part of the reason we went up there this specific weekend was because Matt had his annual guy's canoe/camping trip, which is near Pittsburgh, so on Friday morning he headed off for the Continue Reading …
