Hey guys — happy Friday! I’m coming to you from New Jersey where I’ve been since Wednesday for Neil’s cousins’s wedding. If you haven’t been following along on Instagram, you might want to start today because this is when all the festivities start! Can I count being on vacation as one of my favorites? That’s not really going to help you at all, so I’ll just mention it here and let it go. We head back to Chicago on Sunday after what I’m sure will be an exhausting couple more days. Always good — but tiring! I hope you have… View Post

Welcome to Friday! I was so confused all week. Not in that I thought it was a day earlier or a day later, but when I tried to think of what day it was, I was more like “what is a day?” It took me a second to come back from existing in no man’s land and figure out where I was in the course of the week. I think I need a weekend. I’ve got some plans to check out a new location of my favorite donut shop in Chicago — Do-Rite Donuts — tomorrow (right after a workout… View Post

Happy Friday! How has your June been so far? The sun has finally come out here in Chicago and it’s GLORIOUS. I don’t have much on the agenda this weekend, so I’m hoping it stays that way despite the forecast not being quite as glorious.

Enlightened Ice Cream I received a shipment of Enlightened ice cream this week and Neil and I had a taste testing party. If you’re familiar with Halo Top ice… View Post

Happy Friday friends! This week has been a great one — a good balance of all my jobs so that I didn’t feel like a chicken with its head cut off. I had the opportunity to be a guest on Davida’s podcast That’s So Maven, which garnered a lot of support around the topic of mental health and how medication can be an asset in a healthy living world that preaches a lot of natural remedies and solutions. Sometimes you need both! This weekend is low key except for my decision to do an insane workout tomorrow morning in honor… View Post

Happy Friday friends! I’m having a love–hate relationship with the weather right now in Chicago. I’m loving that it’s getting warmer, but I’m hating that my building controls the a/c and it’s not turned on yet. Neil and I have been sleeping with a sheet and a fan and it’s very glamorous. I think it should be turned on by next week, so fingers crossed. My weekend is looking pretty light aside from renewing my CPR/AED certification tomorrow morning. My training certification needs to be renewed by the end of this month, so this is the last piece of the… View Post
