I’m participating in the 26 Random Acts of Kindness in honor of the 26 lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary. (source) In trying to come up with ideas to ensure my acts of kindness are indeed random, I made a list of ideas. I was hoping sharing these with you could perhaps make the task […]


I know I mentioned the fact that I’d be attending The Lumineers concert at the Norva this week. To put it plainly, it. was. awesome. I love The Lumineers, and I was recently introduced to the Ambassadors pretty recently, as well. I was anticipating loving the performances by both of these bands, but I knew […]


Surgery #3: This and That

December 18, 2012 · 13 comments

This was my fitmixer boot camp night-before-surgery full house workout. That was on the wall of my surgery ro0m: [Need I say it again? There is no safe way to tan in a tanning bed.] This illustrates just how deep they have to cut to get it out. That is what I ate once surgery […]


Gun Control, Please.

I can’t think about the devastating tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School without tearing up. Working in a school makes the shooting so real, and I absolutely cannot imagine what I would do if I were in the situation. The stories of teachers my age giving their lives to shield their students gives me the […]

The time of year is approaching when everyone asks what you’re resolving to do for 2013. To be honest, 2012 was such a transition year for me, so it took me a minute to decide what my big resolution would actually be. After thinking about my fitness goals, I decided I don’t want to pin […]


I thought I was the only person who has done this. More than once. Have a good day, everyone. I’ll be hanging out with my mama all day post-surgery. Entertain me with a story of something you do… and thought you were the only one.

1. Vegan banana bread = my new jam. I’ve made it once with walnuts and once with chocolate chips. Chocolate chips obviously win. Always. Step aside, walnuts.   2. I have been pretty fortunate lately with the rockin’ artists visiting my area for great concerts. Last week, I went to see Fun., Imagine Dragons, Of […]


Another Surgery

Remember when I had another dermatologist checkup a few weeks ago? I wish I was reporting I’m in the clear, but even after a very sun-safe summer, I have another spot that needs to be cut out. When my dermatologist called with the news two weeks ago, my heart sank, remembering the all too fun […]


Crazy or Awesome?

Is it crazy or awesome I just made “tall blonde girl” my ringtone? Or just weird? Don’t answer that. Months after discovering the video, it’s still hilarious to me. Is it crazy or awesome to run the Virginia Beach Surf n Santa 10 mile race tomorrow even though I have some sort of bronchitis/upper respiratory infection […]


Is it just me, or do the sight of quality workout clothes at a good price make you drool? That entire outfit is worth over $100. It cost me $49.95. But what about the idea of completing a style profile and paying only $49.95 (click here for 20% off) for a quality brand active wear […]
