  • Friday I’m In Love: ELLIE GOULDING!


    I had a dream come true last night. After over five years of Ellie Goulding fandom, I finally got to see her live in Charlotte and she was INCREDIBLE! I have been a fan of Ellie Goulding since she released her first album back in 2010. She started becoming famous around the same time I [...]

  • Weekend: Pizza & My First Ray LaMontagne


    Hi. It's been a really great Monday. I would skip the weekend recap post and go straight into the new week (because it's bringing many changes) but the weekend was so good I have to share that quickly and then we'll move on! :) The weekend post is brought to you thanks to pizza, M&Ms and Ray [...]

  • Rained Out + Recent Eats


    Last night was a little bit of a let down. I had plans to see Kings of Leon with some friends but the weather was not cooperating. Our seats were on the lawn and there was an 80% chance of storms and a hazardous weather warning. We decided to chance it anyway and drove to [...]

  • Saturday with Jay Z & Dinner Uptown


    Hello and happy Monday. I think it's back to reality for most of us after two weeks of holiday schedules. This is definitely the busy season in the fitness industry. The yoga studios were unbelievably packed over the weekend thanks to a new year and really cold, rainy days. I had over 60 yogis in [...]

  • My First Mumford!


    Several weeks ago some of my girlfriends decided to get a group together to journey down to Simpsonville, South Carolina for the sold out Mumford & Sons concert. We gladly overpaid for tickets on Stub Hub and started making plans. It started with just four of us but before we knew it our group doubled [...]

  • Muse Madness


    I received a text from a friend on Monday afternoon that another of our friends had backed out on her Muse ticket and asking if I wanted it. I immediately replied "YES!!!" I have loved Muse for years. I saw them in Atlanta a few years ago and it was one of the best concerts [...]

  • OneRepublic in Charlotte


    I have been playing a lot of music from OneRepublic's new album in my yoga classes. I didn't even know that I liked them so much until recently. I honestly had no idea that they sing that song Apologize and I've liked it for years! I heard on the radio on Thursday evening that they [...]

  • A Private Andy Grammer Concert


    We were very lucky yogis at Y2 Yoga on Tuesday night...Andy Grammer played a private charity concert at the studio benefiting ALS. It's kind of a crazy story...Andy played at the studio three years ago when it first opened to all of about 10 people. The studio was lucky to have 5 people in a class [...]

  • Eat, Drink And Be Merry


    I did something last night that I haven't done in 10 years. (source - I was not that close to the stage.) I went to a Dave Matthews Band concert. I actually cannot believe that it's been so long since I've seen Dave because to say that I was obsessed in high school would be [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Amazing Avett’s and Teaching Updates


    Where did the weekend go!? Why do they pass so quickly!? The highlight of my weekend was definitely seeing my favorite band...again. We counted on the way to the show and it was our eighth time seeing The Avett Brothers! Read previous show recaps here and here. We even met them last fall! Unfortunately, the [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • An Evening with the Avett's


    Apologies that I didn't update last night but I was busy being happy. Brandon (a.k.a. the best husband ever) got us in to The Avett Brothers CD release party. The Avett Brothers are my very favorite band and happen to be from Concord, North Carolina. To celebrate the release of their live album (that was [...]

  • Brunch, Bluegrass, Backbreaking Labor


    Coming at you today with far less energy than I had after yesterday's 16-miler. There has been no rest for my tired body - I kind of can't believe how much we crammed into this long weekend. We met up with my in law's yesterday for brunch after my long run. I was ready to [...]

  • It's Getting Hot in Here

    { 1 comment }

    The first day of summer might not officially be until June 21 but it has arrived here in Charlotte. It's been in the 90's since Friday and so humid! Brandon and I both grew up the South so we're accustomed to hot and humid summers but those first few days are always a bit of [...]
