A Delicious Introduction to Charleston

Our big move happened fast and furious! Everything had to be done so quickly and we were rushing around like crazies trying to get it all done. Brett even had to come find us a house by himself. I didn’t even see it until we actually bought it and closed! So, with everything going on we have had to eat out a lot which means one of our favorite things – trying new restaurants. What better way to get introduced…

Nashville Moment: Brunch at Biscuit Love

Brett and I are suckers for a really good brunch. It’s our favorite meal and we love finding a new spot to dine for it. We had plenty of places we loved in Chicago so we have been scoping out the scene here in Nashville. A couple weekends ago we decided to try Biscuit Love in The Gulch. Brett’s co-worker recommended it and I was definitely up for trying it out! I had a 17 mile run that morning on…

The Weekend and That Was Dumb

I’m happy to report that I did both my planned workouts this weekend. However, I did something really dumb. For my cross training workout on Saturday I did a leg workout. Then Sunday I ran 10 miles. So how do you think my legs are feeling? Terrible! Every part of my legs is currently aching. I don’t recommend working similar muscle groups like that 2 days in a row. It really wasn’t smart of me but Brett was doing that…

Recipe Round Up: What I’m Loving Lately

Since I try to eat healthy most of the time, I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make. I generally like to make things that taste great, are quick and easy to make, and don’t cost a fortune. I get these recipes from all over – searching the internet, Pinterest, and getting suggestions from my stepmom. In fact, most of them are recommended from her because she’s a great cook and likes to eat healthy too. Lucky…

Mother’s Day 2015

I had such a great Mother’s Day yesterday. It was just such a good day to spend with my family and I really, really enjoyed it. Plus, I discovered some new spots in Nashville, possibly the best brunch I have ever had, and found out my little girl is going to be quite the water baby. Brett and Ady woke me up with a cute little card. Ady was holding it in her hand waving it at me. It had…

What I’ve been cooking up lately: Baby food!

There are numerous things I looked forward to when I found out I was pregnant.  And with my beliefs on food, one of them was being able to make homemade baby food.  I hate that there are so many chemicals and crazy things in our food so I want to start my daughter’s life in a healthy way.  Knowing that I’m making the food means I know exactly what’s in there. I enjoy cooking sometimes but I wouldn’t call myself…
