Earlier this month I went to a two-day event hosted by ALDI at their Test Kitchen, along with a handful of other food bloggers. That picture (^^^) pretty much sums up my entire visit. There wasn’t actually any cooking on our part. Instead, there was an endless stream of food. We tasted, and taste,d and tasted, […]

{via} I just finished reading The Goldfinch (finally!), and I have to say that I’m really sad it’s over. I haven’t felt this invested in a book in a really, really long time. Tell me – what should I read next??? I’m totally open to any and all suggestions, fiction and non-fiction. Next weekend we’re […]

Happy Sunday! I spent this past Thursday and Friday with all of these lovely food blogging ladies, touring the ALDI Test Kitchen. And by “touring”, I mean feasting on more food than you can imagine, getting school on wine tasting and learning the best ways to pair wine with meals. In a word, it was awesome! […]

It’s Marathon Sunday in New York! Otherwise known as, one the greatest, if not the greatest, day of the year in New York. For years I stood on the sidelines of First Avenue near mile 19, along with my running team, cheering on marathoners and handing out bananas and oranges. For years I also swore I’d […]

Yesterday I went to my first Pilates class in about, oh, six years. I used to go all the time (six years ago). Then I discovered triathlon, and in between all the sim, bike and run, I had all I could do to fit in some strength training, let alone fit in Pilates.  So, it […]

For a long time one of my biggest frustration with living in New York City was the cost of living. In particular, groceries. Somewhere along the way I found a happy medium between feeling constantly annoyed by overpriced grocery stores/lack of inexpensive options and accepting it. Mostly because I didn’t have a choice. It’s a […]

Weekend Things + pumpkins

Hi, friends! It’s kind of hard to believe that last week on Sunday morning I was paddling around Safety Harbor in Florida, making friends with manatees and reveling in the 80-degree sunshine. This morning I’m reaching for a sweater.   * i’m finally reading this book, and I cannot put it down! It is soooooo […]

Hello from sunny Florida! We’re spending the weekend in and around Tampa for a friend’s wedding. In addition to tearing up the dance floor, we also managed to take advantage of outdoor lap pools (I really need to live in a place where these exist!), running near the water and some solid beach time. It […]

{via} Hi friends! I’ve been fighting this nasty cold since the middle of last week, and I cannot shake it. It started as an awful sore throat, moved into my head, then down to my chest and by Friday by voice was nearly gone and the sore throat was back. Ugh. The past few months […]
