  • Weekend: Working, Goldens, Grilling and Gymnastics


    My Monday got off to a bit of a crazy start on the work front so after I finished teaching my 8:15 a.m. class I came home and decided to put a momentary pause on everything work related. I tidied up the house, took the girls for a walk while I caught up with my parents, [...]

  • How I’m Enjoying More Mornings and Evenings Outside This Summer


    There are two types of people in this world. Those who can enjoy outdoor summer activities without getting a single mosquito bite and those who can't walk outside without becoming a feast for mosquitoes. Unfortunately, I fall into the second camp. Tanner can be outside for hours doing yard work without getting a single bite while [...]

  • Weekend Away: Home in Georgia


    I spent the weekend in Georgia visiting my grandmother and parents who were also in town visiting. Getting out of Charlotte was just what the doctor ordered. Here are some photos from my weekend. I stopped at Om Yoga on my way out of town to pick up my paycheck and couldn't resist a stop [...]

  • Fall Grilling

The "workout music" selection on iTunes is made up of a lot of horrendous techno-ish covers. Wow. I can't use my BodyPump music because it's [...]

  • Southern Girl


    Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on the blog and Twitter about my new job. You guys are the best! Day 2 went really well - happy, happy! Yesterday's post stopped right before dinner. Citrus grilled chicken, grilled zucchini and whole wheat couscous with goat cheese, balsamic, homegrown tomatoes and herbs from [...]

  • Back in Action


    And I’m back! I promise that last weekend was the end of the intermittent blogging and I’m now returning to regular posting. As you all know (because I told you in every single post last week), the past two weeks have been insane with house closing, moving, traveling, unpacking and preparing for weekend guests. We [...]
