Where to find your next RACE!!

It’s no secret I LOVE running races. The whole experience is great to me. I have run numerous races and I have to say one of the hardest things about planning my races each year is actually finding them. When I was living in Chicago, I would get some serious winter blues so I would start planning my races in January for the summer and fall. I would have to search around online to find different ones. To be honest,…

Love Low-Cal Cocktails?!

It’s no secret that alcoholic drinks can add up to a lot of calories.  One margarita alone can have 500 calories.  Just one!  I do love margaritas though.  Paired with a good bowl of chips and some salsa… it’s a perfect combo.  However, this isn’t so great for the waist line or your health. While having one of those drinks once in awhile won’t hurt, it’s just not realistic to assume you can drink those and stay on track with…

Moving cities: Lessons Learned!

As I mentioned in a previous blog, we have made a big change in our lives and moved from Chicago to Nashville.  I am still mourning the big city and getting used to a more suburban lifestyle… it’s going to take more time than I realized but I will get there. During this whole moving chaos (truly CHAOS), I have learned a thing or two that I thought I would share.  Some of this you might already know and some…

Big Move

Life changes when you have a baby.  I can’t tell you how many times I was told this while I was pregnant.  And it’s absolutely, 100% true. Having Adyson is one of the best things that have happened to my husband and me.  It’s also been one of the hardest.  Raising a human is TOUGH!  But what changes isn’t just your sleep, the amount of showers you take, or your finances, it’s also the way you think. My husband and…

A workout at a spa? Core Fusion Extreme at Exhale Spa

A few weeks ago I was invited to attend the Core Fusion Extreme class at Exhale Spa.  With such an intense name, I knew I was going to like this one. If you aren’t familiar with Exhale Spa, the place is a one-stop-shop for so many of my favorite things.  They have some great fitness classes and they are a spa so you can go for a sweat sesh followed by a massage and facial if you want. Sign. Me….

Throwback Cocktails at Public Hotel

I recently became a part of the Windy City Bloggers Collective and it has been a blast so far.  Along with many other events, we usually have a monthly Happy Hour hosted by a bar/restaurant in the city.  A time for some of the best bloggers in Chicago to come together and enjoy drinks, chat, make new friends, and of course try some of the best places our city has to offer. Last night, our Happy Hour was hosted by…
