Baltimore: Charm City

We’re here! We arrived in Baltimore today, a few days ahead of Fitbloggin — sort of a combo birthday/anniversary trip (his birthday was February 22nd, mine March 17th and our wedding anniversary is April 8). The weather is go-hor-hor-hor-hor-geous! It’s actually warmer here than in Orlando! We love to travel, so the first thing we […]

Caffeine and Cookies

Lucas just got back from a week-long trip to Seattle. I was so jealous — we went to Portland and Seattle a year or so ago and very seriously talked about packing up and moving! He asked me what I wanted as a souvenir, and I requested local coffee and a Starbucks Seattle mug to […]

Bacon Birthday Cake

That’s right — vegans, beware. Because below, I am proving my awesome wife status with pictures of the Bacon Birthday Cake that made Lucas drool. But first, an NKOTB throwback video for my baby on his 30th birthday: Don’t even hate on my for the NKOTB love (which, BTW, I have professed before). I still […]

So Fresh, So Clean Clean

C’mon…the song‘s in your head now, right? Well, put your Big Boi aside (THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID — I had to do it, and you’ll see why in a few moments), because in this case, the post title refers to the Social Fresh social media conference that I was lucky enough to dish out a […]

His 'n' Hers Dream Day Redux

A while back, I declared a trip to M&M world, Pizza Fusion, Whole Foods, Fresh Market and Total Wine  to be “His ‘n’ Hers Dream Day.” Well, folks — we took a very different, very successful crack at the title today. Of course, it didn’t hurt that my mood was brightened on Friday. Lucas had […]

2009: A Year in Review

2009 was a year of highs and lows — all documented on the blog! It’s so much fun to look back at what I did, especially because from a fitness perspective, this was one of the most successful years of my life. Overall, I’m very proud to have continued to succeed at a job I […]

Secret Saturday Fun Day

Take it from me — when your husband says: I’m planning a secret Saturday fun day. We need to leave at 7:30am. Wear sneakers and jeans and eat some breakfast before we go. Just nod your head and agree. I know, I know…fellow A Type personalities, it’s against my nature, too! But if you don’t […]

Day of Detox

I had a wonderful time on vacation, but as stated before, I ate: and drank: and ate: and drank some more. In fact, the last day of vacation is a blur of beer and bubble tea, courtesy of Portland (and my mom). After a week of complete and total indulgence (who doesn’t need an ice […]
