2020 Resolution Update

So we’ve endured the longest month in history and are FINALLY into February. And I know what you must be wondering: how did my January goals pan out? Did everything fall apart after your last blog post? Even if you weren’t wondering, I’m gonna tell you anyway. These updates will be brief, as I didn’t…

Living in the 20s

Is anyone else tripping out over the fact that we’re all LIVING IN THE 20s? I know it’s not the 1920s, but it’s still a decade that will be referred to as the 20s. I think. How will we differentiate the 1920s from the 2020s? It’s messing with my head way more than I thought…

The Hotel St. Pierre

Spooky season is officially upon us, and I thought, why not kick it off with a story about the Hotel St. Pierre, a spot I briefly called home for a night during my recent trip to New Orleans? Like all scary stories, this one involves a run-down hotel and a Norman Bates-esque clerk who attempted…

Buen Camino

I’ve been back home for a day and I’m still trying to process the amazing past two weeks I had in Spain. Two weeks that seemed to go by fast and slow at the same time. Two weeks that kicked off with a week-long trek down the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. I didn’t know…

Jonathan Taylor Thomas Was a Little Shit in Man of the House

Many moons ago, before alcohol poisoning via Four Loko was trendy, my sister and I popped a couple cans and revisited a favorite childhood classic, Man of the House. Remember that movie? With Jonathan Taylor Thomas (here on out referred to as JTT) and Chevy Chase? Here, let me refresh your memory: This movie was…

Boeuf Bourguignon and Anthony Bourdain

I was at my desk at work, engulfed in one thing or another, when my phone lit up with a new Google Hangouts notification. It was from my husband. “Hey, sweetest heart. I have a challenge for you, if you’d like to try it.” I was intrigued. My husband is unpredictable when it comes to…

Beauty Junk Roundup: Silk 18 Shampoo

This isn’t so much a “roundup” as it is more of a review of just one product: the Silk 18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics. Once again, Maple Holistics reached out to me to see if I would be willing to do a review for this product (see past reviews here and here), and I agreed….

Race Recap: Terrain Race Orlando

Last Saturday, I completed the Terrain Race, a 5K obstacle course at the Spyder Mx Action Sports Complex in Wildwood, about an hour’s drive west of Orlando. It was my third obstacle course race since I started dabbling last year, and, while I didn’t get as filthy as I did at the Spartan Race, I…

Girl, Level Up Your Snacking

Two weeks ago, I went with some friends to see Rachel Hollis presents: Made For More.¬†While I took more away from the documentary than I thought I would, this post will not be about the movie. It will be about the snacks. As I mentioned on my podcast, I have been on a medically supervised…
