Opening Day 2014

It was a cold and rainy opening day, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time at the ballpark! If you’re not familiar with the St. Louis Cardinals Opening Day, it’s a big to-do. I’ve been once before, as part of a gift for my 16th birthday, but I always watch it on […]

A Weekend in Record Time

This weekend has FLOWN by, but luckily for me I get an extra day! I’m going to the Cardinals Opening Day today, so I get an extra day off! The weekend itself was pretty low-key, without too much excitement. On Saturday, I slept in and got lunch with Allen and then we spent the afternoon […]

Birthday Weekend: Running and Eating

I had a fabulous birthday weekend, and it started on Friday! Well, actually, Thursday, when THIS BABY was delivered to my house: My new computer! It arrived even earlier than expected, so I was able to take it to the Apple store on Thursday night so they could do a data transfer from my old […]

Wednesday Quick Hits

This is going to be a quick post because Nashville is on in 13 minutes! Here I go: Breakfast required no heating because I was too lazy: Avocado toast and a ripe, juicy pear. Coffee on the side. Easy peasy. I got my TB test read at the hospital today. Good news! I don’t have […]

Spring takes a break

It was not very spring-like outside today. So much for SPRING break. I still had a pretty good day, and even ventured outdoors. My morning started out a little later than I’d planned, but breakfast was already done! I made the vegan overnight oats recipe in the Oh She Glows cookbook. This recipe uses a […]

Back in the Kitchen

Boy, does it feel good to get back into the kitchen. I did so much cooking today, and it was glorious. I was awake at 7:30 even though I had my alarm set at 8 a.m., but I just got up anyways. I made my first recipe from the Oh She Glows cookbook today! I […]

Recent Eats and a New Computer

Hello! Long time no see! I had actually planned to post last night, but I had some major computer troubles instead. My Macbook Pro is almost 5 years old, and I decided to upgrade to the new OS Mavericks, and it didn’t go well. After hours of frustration and several reinstall attempts, I was unable […]

Getting Back to Running

Spring is coming! And my running legs are noticing. My half marathon training technically started a week ago, but I didn’t run much because of some pretty chilly weather and a lack of motivation. But starting with Saturday’s run, I was feeling motivated to get outside and move my body. I ran 3 days in […]

A Weekend at Home

For losing an hour over the weekend, it was a really relaxing couple of days. I headed home for the weekend to visit with my family. Friday night was uneventful, and I went to bed exhausted around 10:30. After 10 glorious hours of sleep, I woke up the next day feeling rested. Breakfast was a […]
