Running Victories and You MUST Add This Song to Your Playlist STAT!

I can’t say that I enjoy being to work at 7am, but I DO enjoy when I’m able to get off from work early enough to make it to the lake before the massive crowds take up all the parking.

The only problem is that around 4:30pm is basically the hottest part of the day. It was about 9 million degrees outside and I was wearing this.

Memorial Day Weekend in Review – One Sentence Per Picture… Well Sort Of…

Hey there!

I’m coming to you a little later than normal this week with my weekend recap since I also had Monday off from work and was busy busy busy all day on Monday with my mom and aunt working on decorating my apartment some more. Thankfully I have people who love me and are willing to drive over an hour to help me hang pictures in my apartment because who knows how this weekends’ projects would have turned out without them!

Weekend In Review – Flywheel, Blue Apron and Death by Bike Ride!

Hello there!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that it was at least somewhat sunny where you are! I actually had a pretty jam packed weekend full of time with friends and family, so I’m a happy girl. The only thing that could have made it better would have been more time! Isn’t that always the case though? Anywhoo…

Red Hot Red Velvet Cupcakes

Hey there!

Today I wanted to share with you a quick, easy and festive recipe that I whipped up for Valentine’s Day this year. As I’m sure you’ve probably started to realize, I’m a huge fan of cupcakes (see examples here, here and here), so it should come as no surprise that I just had to create some sort of fun cupcake to celebrate Valentine’s Day! Though I’m not really celebrating this year, I do like to make fun treats to share, so I whipped up these babies to take to some coworkers and to my physical therapy office. Continue reading

Quick & Easy Breakfast Recipes From The Skinny Confidential & GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: I received product from The Skinny Confidential for my participation in this book tour. TSC also provided the product for this giveaway. I received no other compensation. As always, all opinions are my own.

Hey there!

I’m SO SO excited to share this post with you today. When I received an email a few weeks ago asking me to be a part of the virtual book tour for Lauryn Evarts’s book, The Skinny Confidential: A Babe’s Sexy, Sassy Fitness and Lifestyle Guide, I couldn’t respond “YES” fast enough. Once I stopped doing my happy dance long enough to pick my jaw up off the floor, I immediately pulled her book off my shelf (I bought it last March when it came out) and started brainstorming what part of her book I wanted to share with you here on my little corner of the blogosphere.

Ultimate 12th Man Game Day Treats!

Hey there!

So I may have went a little crazy making 12th Man treats for our Super Bowl party, but I was really feeling inspired by all the green and blue baking supplies at the store, so I figured why not?!?! It’s not very often when I’m feeling a like embracing my inner Martha Stewart, so what’s the harm in going a little crazy. It’s the Super Bowl for goodness sake! Continue reading

An Easy & Healthy Snack, Workouts and Auditions!

This ecard couldn’t be more true for me! I always get to class early to claim “my bike” and will sometimes not even go to class if I’m running too late because I hate using any other bike in the room. I know, I know. I completely realize how ridiculous that sounds but it’s one of my little corks, I guess. I’ve bonded with that bike over may hours of sweat sessions by now and it just seems wrong to cheat on it with another bike! Maybe I’m a little too attached… Continue reading

Easy No Bake Holiday Treats: Loaded Pretzel Rods

Hey there!

I want to share another super easy holiday treat recipe with you today. The inspiration for this came from this recipe, but we tweaked the ingredients a little to make our own version. I like how these are easy to make, but also impressive looking enough to take to a party and wow all your friends!
