Friday Five: A Lot of Life Edition

February 21, 2014

I survived my first full week back as a working mom. I did miss my play group on Wednesday, and I did miss the whole leggings bit but…small price for the benefits. I (somehow) landed in my dream job at a boutique marketing agency in town and I couldn’t be happier – more on this […]

Finding the Right Fitting Jog Bra

February 19, 2014

Finding the right fitting anything can be a hassle when it comes to running gear. Sneakers, shorts that don’t give you a wedgie, shorts that don’t make you chafe on your inner thighs. You know. Those types of things but aside from your sneaks, the most important piece of gear you’ll wear is a jog […]

Traveling With Baby

February 14, 2014

Someone recently asked me about traveling with baby. How to do it, is it easy, etc… We’ve traveled enough with Ethan to know that if you’re prepared, then yes. It’s pretty easy. I’ve flown with him twice now and both times were mostly a breeze. And we’ve taken a dozen or so longer car trips […]

Keep Valentines Day Cheap & Thoughtful

February 12, 2014

Valentines Day is just around the corner, and while we don’t have plans, we’ll probably order sushi, grab a bottle of Boordy and stay in with a movie off Amazon. It’s cheaper this way, our we’ve had amazing Valentine’s Dates. But now when you add in a baby sitter, you nearly double the cost. Way […]

Weekly Workouts & Another #tripnorth

February 10, 2014

Another weekend, another #tripnorth. This trip was planned, not spontaneous like last weekend when I popped up to see my Papa before his triple bypass surgery. Hubs had drill this weekend and was originally supposed to be in Florida for four days, but instead had a three day drill based at home. So, I made […]

Theres Nothing Wrong with Walking

February 7, 2014

For a while, as a runner, I kind of shunned walkers. Walking wasn’t a workout. Maybe it was for others but definitely not for me. I was a runner. I associated mall walking with old people and frumpiness. But here’s the thing that I’ve learned over the past few weeks….it’s actually a lot of fun. […]

Organizing & Planning Workouts

February 6, 2014

I like to be an organized person. Sometimes I’m really on it. Like color coding and everything. This is evident not just in my every day life, but also when it comes to planning my workouts. Of course, like everyone else, there are times when I forget to write anything down. Whoops. And when that […]

Weekend Recap: Impromptu #tripnorth Edition

February 3, 2014

I did pretty good for workouts last week – mostly. Until I popped up to Vermont unexpectedly (and surprisingly inexpensively!) Saturday morning and returned this afternoon. That’s what you do for family though. I ate like crap and now I’m feeling it. I need to get back into eating clean because ugh, I just feel […]
