img_4700

Sunday was G-love's birthday, so we had a big brunch at my apartment to celebrate. I made a huge fruit salad, Galen made waffles, and we also had bacon, eggs, and mimosas. You know, typical brunch fare. Galen claims that the "just add water" … [Continue reading]

Wednesday night was what you'd call... a salsa extravaganza. Eric and I decided to try to create a bunch of different salsa recipes, for no particular reason, other than it sounded like fun. We played with tomatillos, tomatoes, various peppers, … [Continue reading]

So far... this week has been pretty excellent! Monday, I got an e-mail back from FitFluential, and I'm officially a FitFluential Ambassador! I'm excited, because it's such an amazing community of bloggers! I also ran a new PR on the treadmill, did … [Continue reading]

Let’s Call it a Rest Weekend

a1b53bae9bdb11e1a9f71231382044a1_7

I had good intentions. I packed my running shoes. I remembered a sports bra. But no running happened. None. Does walking to the ice cream place count? I wasn't actually surprised by my lack of exercise. Since my left leg had been bothering me a … [Continue reading]

Wine, Blogger-friends, & Healthy Shakes

Wednesday night, we had completely random twitter-planned happy hour, and Ipanema Cafe handled our blogger-flock quite well :) (Bonus points for them, since they tweeted back to us.) Clearly, if you're not following me on twitter, you should be. How … [Continue reading]

I'd never even heard of coconut butter until I started reading blogs. I tried making my own once, and it turned out pretty badly. Not sure what happened... but since then, it's intimidated me. However, when the awesome folks at Artisana offered to … [Continue reading]

Clean Eating Wednesday

The past couple of weeks have been filled with excuses of why I just have to "splurge". (New York, D.C., SweetLife Festival, etc.) but I'm trying to get back into less processed food, and more veggies. It sounds simple, but it's not always easy to … [Continue reading]
