  • Saturday Road Trip + Week of Eats


    Sullie and I loaded up around noon today for a road trip down to Georgia to visit my grandmother. Sadly, I left Zoey in very loving care in Charlotte because she's a little too crazy right now for me to manage by myself in the car for four hours. I was also worried about her [...]

  • Birthday Surprise Visit!


    Everyone...wish my grandmother a very happy birthday! Last week I planned a surprise visit to come to Georgia to be with her on her birthday. I cleared my Monday and Tuesday calendar and drove down yesterday to surprise her! I left on Monday morning. It's a little less than 4 hours to get down here [...]

  • Golden Goodness


    Happy President's Day! I hope that some of you are enjoying a day off. Unfortunately, I am not. I taught 6 a.m. BodyPump (and had quite a few members who came for early class on their day off...so awesome!) and now I have to spend the rest of my day in CPR and First Aid [...]

  • Happy To Be Here


    Hello from Georgia! Sullie and I arrived at my grandmother's house around 1 p.m. and she has been glued to Mema's side ever since! Backing up...I made it out of bed around 6:45 this morning and promptly made breakfast and worked on some blog stuff. I have been on such a bagel kick lately. I [...]

  • A Tuesday Trip


    I am happy to hear that I wasn't the only one in "recovery mode" on Monday. My recovery carried into Tuesday but also involved the reality of a little bit of work too (um...and the reality of some cake...keep reading!). I taught a 7 a.m. class uptown at Charlotte Athletic Club and then had a [...]

  • Road Trip Shopping Adventures


    Greetings from I-85! We are currently en route to Georgia for a wedding. The wedding is near the Georgia/Alabama boarder but we're stopping tonight in Athens to visit friends and enjoy a night on the town. I finished teaching for the day at 1:30 but before we hit the road lunch was a must. I [...]

  • Destination Unknown


    I hope everyone is having a good day! I have the day off and it's been amazing. Actually, I'm kicking off  a four-day weekend. Now that is amazing! :) Clearly, the best way to start a day off is with a 5 a.m. wake up call. Kidding...but it was a necessity. I had to teach [...]

  • Midnight Train to Georgia


    Happy Friday! Well, we didn't actually take a train but look where we arrived shortly after midnight last night... In Georgia at my grandmother's house! Can you believe that she had open heart surgery just 10 DAYS ago? Doesn't she look great!? Her recovery is going really well now that she's home. She's able to [...]

  • Away We Go


    It's midnight and I have to be up at 5 a.m. to head to the airport. :shock: I couldn't leave without saying goodbye! A few updates... There will still be daily updates on PBR while I'm gone. I have four guest posters and a couple scheduled from me. I have put a LOT of hours [...]

  • Brunch and Frappuccinos


    This is the third and final post covering our weekend in Atlanta - catch up on Part 1 and Part 2. Since we were in town for the wedding, I was so very lucky to have the chance to spend Mother's Day with my mom. This is kind of sad but I don't even remember [...]

  • Another Weekend, Another Road Trip


    Well, our streak of weekend road trips continued last night with a drive to Atlanta. One of Brandon's college roomates is getting married today! All of our four-hour road trips are for fun activities (beach, visiting family, a wedding and next weekend - VACATION!) so it's worth the long hours in the car. And is [...]

  • Operation Storm Survival, Beach, Run and BEAUTIFUL!


    Happy weekend from beautiful Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. I braved extremely hazardous road conditions to get here...and I was by myself. Brandon left earlier in the week for the beach but I had to work so couldn't leave until after work Friday. My solo road trip started off with a [...]

  • AthFest Day 1

    Hello from Athens, Georgia! On the way to Athens I had a Synergy Kombucha. We received a warm welcome last night when we arrived at Drew and Natalie's house with friends, dinner and drinks waiting on us. Natalie and Drew prepared quite a spread for dinner. Edamame dip. Whole wheat couscous with red bell pepper, [...]
