  • The Mayobird: The Best New Lunch and Hangout Spot in Charlotte!


    I had a lunch meeting today at The Mayobird here in Charlotte and it's now my new favorite lunch and meeting spot. Whether you live in Charlotte or not, you will love the concept of this restaurant! It's based on chicken salad! They offer 17 different varieties of chicken salad and you choose whether you [...]

  • CLT Eats: Fahrenheit & littleSpoon


    It's only Wednesday but I've already hit up two new Charlotte restaurants this week. Before I share my experiences with these restaurants let me give you my take on the Charlotte restaurant scene as a whole...I do not love it. We have a ton of restaurants in Charlotte and while I feel grateful for the [...]

  • Friday Night Out at Good Food


    Good morning! I'm currently on layover in Atlanta on my way to Florida. My flight left Charlotte this morning at 6 a.m. so that meant a 4 a.m. wake up call. So early but worth it to be at the beach by 9 a.m. I just ate a spinach and feta egg white wrap from [...]

  • Tupelo Honey Comes to Charlotte


    In all the visits I have made to Asheville I have never visited one of its most iconic restaurants, Tupelo Honey. The restaurant is located downtown and serves "nouveau Southern" cuisine. The lines are always crazy long so I never visited while visiting Asheville. Tupelo Honey has been expanding in recent years and now has [...]

  • Good Food


    While I'm sad to hear that so many other people are dealing with running/sports-related injuries, I am excited that so many of you are interested in focusing on mobility in December. I'll try to share with you each day what I'm doing from a mobility standpoint and a couple of times a week I will [...]

  • Sweet Friday


    I don't know if there are words to describe how insanely happy I am that it's Friday night. How happy I am that the week has finally ended, that I got to take a yoga class tonight and that I have zero plans this weekend other than doing whatever it is that I feel like [...]

  • Strawberry Nutella Muffins


    I did manage to finally peel myself off the couch and do something last night. I am a little sore from yesterday's Fight Gone Bad workout but it's not nearly as bad as I anticipated. First, I headed over to our new location for a quick meeting about our wall murals. We are having some [...]

  • BYOB Sushi


    Good morning! I hope everyone's long weekend is off to a good start (and I hope you all get to enjoy a long weekend!). We kicked off our weekend with sushi and wine so I can't complain. Cyros is our favorite sushi restaurant in Charlotte. We heard that they haven't been serving alcohol recently but [...]

  • Rocking College Style


    Happy Friday! I loved the comments on the beauty post...I'm happy to know that I'm not the only waxing fanatic. I also got quite a few comments about you guys having to color for gray hair. I responded to those comments saying that I definitely have my fair share. I've had them since I was [...]

  • I’m actually becoming a yoga teacher!


    It's been a long, exhausting and amazing weekend. I just wrapped up weekend seven of eight of yoga teacher training and can't believe that we only meet one more time. The past three months have been so focused on teacher training (thank you for hanging in there with me for it!) and the end seemed [...]

  • A Night In NoDa


    Hi friends - thank you for being patient with my random blogging schedule the past couple of days. Life is feeling really busy right now and I think it's safe to say that I'm running at capacity! Fortunately, I love being busy and love everything that I have going on so I know I'll make [...]

  • A Much Needed Weekend at Home


    Happy weekend! It is a beautiful Sunday morning here with sunshine streaming in through all the windows. It's supposed to be in the mid-50's this afternoon so I'm going to take advantage of this weather and get a long(ish) run in. I'm hoping for 8-10 miles. I'm most excited about the opportunity to run in [...]

  • Lately


    Thank you for your kind words, encouragement and support on my Decisions post. I am very lucky to have such insightful and thoughtful readers. That said, I am not considering having a baby (at least right now, sorry Mom!) or leaving my job. I apologize if I freaked some people out. A full explanation is [...]

  • George’s Brasserie and a Snow Day


    It's been such a fun weekend - dinner with friends, a nice long run, a great ashtanga practice, dinner with my in law's at one of our favorite Charlotte restaurants and a day trip to the mountains with lots of snow! Catch up on part one of the weekend with this post and here we [...]

  • A Cold 10 Miles


    I think it was a pretty even split between the white v. colored Christmas lights debate. We've compromised here and have colored on the tree in the house and are doing white outside. I've been busy, busy the last couple days. Friday morning started with an early hot vinyasa yoga class before work. I had [...]

  • Yoga, The Cowfish and a Long Run


    It's Sunday evening but I'm not having the typical, "How can the weekend be over so soon?" feelings. I'm looking forward to the short work week and a four-day weekend including Thanksgiving! I hope that you all have Friday off of work too! Lots of happenings since I posted yesterday. I spent Saturday afternoon at [...]

  • Menu Plan – Week of 7/20 and an Ethiopian Feast


    Today has been so relaxing. I had NO PLANS other than a yoga and baking. Ahh...so needed after traveling the last three weekends. One of the benefits of having no plans was being able to menu plan this afternoon! Here's what this week is looking like! Monday Tomato Tarts with Goat Cheese and Basil Salad [...]
