  • Weekend: Pizza & My First Ray LaMontagne

    { 24 comments }

    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 [...]

  • From Student To Teacher

    My day of rest and meds helped. I feel much better today! I think that I'll be able to avoid this turning into cold/sinus infection and I am so thankful for that. I mentioned this in my last post but I haven't been sick in a very long time (knock on wood). I think that's [...]

  • The Weekend + Crockpot Salsa Chicken Recipe

    I don't have too much to report from the weekend. It's been very low-key. Saturday morning involved CrossFit. The second I checked the blog and saw this WOD I abandoned plans to practice  yoga and headed over to the new gym instead. This is an ideal WOD for me for an all over good workout. [...]

  • Pups + Pizza = Happiness

    One of the perks of my job (there are too many to list!) is that I can bring Sullie into the gym with me when I'm spending time knocking out desk work. Science Daily actually just published an article about a study that shows dogs in the workplace can reduce stress and make the job more satisfying for [...]

  • Babies and Bellies

    It seems like every day I hear about a new pregnancy or baby being born. I guess that's just the stage of life that I'm in right now. I attended a baby shower for Caitlin yesterday and there were five pregnant ladies in attendance. Impressive! Also, I got word late last night that one of [...]

    Happy, happy, happy Friday! Although I can't believe it's already Friday! When I travel on the weekends and then jump back into a busy week, time seems to fly. I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend in Charlotte so that I can catch up and get organized. Two things that I pretty much feel like [...]

    Guess who came to Charlotte to visit!? Alaina from The Jogging Concierge! Alaina and I have been blog friends for over a year now so I was thrilled when she told me she was planning a trip to Charlotte this fall. I am so happy to have her here! Breakfast after teaching BodyPump this morning [...]

    Hi and hope that Monday was kind to you! I know I sound like a broken record but my Monday was so good. With each day that passes I feel more and more confident that I made the right decision to take the leap of faith and change careers. The big news of today is [...]

    Wow, where do I even start? I don’t think I have ever felt so loved on a birthday before. Thank you SO MUCH for your comments, facebook messages and tweets.

  • Spring Break

    Happy Friday friends! My office is closed today for our Spring holiday so Brandon and I decided to head to Georgia to visit my grandmother. We haven't seen my family since Christmas and four months is just far too long to go without a visit! We left after work yesterday. It's a four-hour trip to [...]

    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 [...]
