  • Life + Loving Lately…Party Edition (with a giveaway!)


    Hellllooo! It's 72 degrees in Charlotte...on December 15...and it's AMAZING. I mean, it's a little weird to be getting ready for Christmas in flip flops and tank tops but I'll take it. Apparently, we can thank a strong El Nino year for the 60 and 70 degree days that we've been enjoying all month. My [...]

  • Monday in the Life + Scenes from the Weekend


    Monday is always a crazy but fun start to the week for me. I train clients at 5:30 and 6:30 a.m. and then head to the studio to teach at 8:15 a.m. and usually take the class after to get my practice out of the way while I'm already sweaty. I shower and head back [...]

  • A Sunday Shower


    On Sunday I co-hosted a baby shower for a dear friend of mine. She is expecting a baby boy in September. We had a little issue with nailing down a shower date and time that worked for all of the hostesses and we ended up going with a bit of a non-traditional time but it worked [...]

  • Weekend of Celebration


    Last weekend was one of those special weekends full of love, fun and friends. On Friday night I attended the Tupelo Honey preview party where I ran into so many friends I don't see often. After dinner I went to a screening of an amazing documentary that deserves its own post. I left with my [...]

  • Taco Time


    Hi! There are dishes to be done, laundry to be put away and a grocery trip to make but sometimes a girl just needs to lounge on the couch for a little bit on a Sunday afternoon. This weekend has been good but wore me out! I am sure you can guess what I spent [...]

  • Crab Cake Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms


    I had a bag of big, beautiful portobello mushrooms from Whole Foods just begging to be stuffed with something delicious. I typically do a spinach artichoke stuffing with portobellos but I wanted to try something new and a little more exciting. On my way to the grocery store I got the idea to use a [...]

  • Highlights


    Hi! Hope you are enjoying the weekend! Rather than give you blow by blow details on mine, I thought I would just post the highlights. The weather is beautiful in Charlotte so we've been trying to cram in all the outdoor activities that we can. Trail Run + Happy Hour Friday afternoon Brandon, Sullie and [...]

  • A Happy Homecoming + Weekend Part Two


    I will start this post with some really good news – my grandmother is home from the hospital! She was released yesterday afternoon and is so happy to be home. It’s really crazy how quickly the doctors get you moving after surgery. They had her up and sitting in a chair within two days and [...]

  • Pizza Party


    When Brandon was in law school we entertained all the time. Somehow our house became the gathering spot for watching games, parties, showers, dinners and more. Since moving to Charlotte we haven't entertained nearly as much and I think this is due to not having a big network of friends like we did in law [...]

  • Holiday Happiness


    I have been full of happiness and smiles the last couple of days. First, by your overwhelming support of my decision to pursue yoga teacher training. Second, I've been surrounded by amazing friends that I don't see often. And third, I wrapped up work today and have almost a whole week off for Christmas! Hooray [...]
