What We Ate – Birthday Edition

cold stone birthday cake

It isn’t often that you find people who actually care to hear you ramble on about a fudge cake or a delicious restaurant. In fact, my friends and family often look at me funny when I take cake selecting and restaurant menus so seriously. I’m so glad you share in my excitement just so I can […]

WIAW- October Happenings

  I thought about skipping out on the What I Ate Wednesday fun this week because it is suddenly October 1st and we need to discuss some happenings. But…. WIAW is part of my routine and without my routine I feel all sorts of off-balance and I don’t want to be off-balance so I figured […]

Birthday Recaps Are Best Told In Food

I am so glad we have my son’s birthday weekend recap full of amazing food to talk about today. It is helping to distract my mind from what my running path is looking like at the moment.

Three Tip Tuesday – Organization

Good morning Spin Tuesday! Ok, so I am not all that excited for a grueling hour of intense spinning but I am slightly looking forward to checking out the new spin bikes. I hate to report that I have not had the chance to get to Lifetime to test out those new treadmills. I know that so many of […]

Kodiak Cakes!

I woke up thinking today was Friday. Not surprising since each day this week my mind has been a day ahead. Oh well. It is only Thursday and once again the forecast calls for torrential rain and flooding. Fun. I wasn’t planning on running outside this morning anyway since I figured I should be utilizing my […]
