The Perfect Fall Day

The Perfect Fall Day

Everyone talks about Seattle summers. About the perfect weather and sunny blue skies. The perfect days on the lake; boating, swimming and paddle boarding. Basking in the sun while laying in the grass of a luscious park. Don’t get me wrong, that is all great. I love going on long walks along Lake Washington and watching the sunset from Alki Beach.

Life Updates

Life Updates

I love writing and blogging, but I will admit that I am not the best at doing it consistently. I want to, I want to post a couple times a week, but it just doesn’t happen. Things get busy and this gets put on the back burner. I prioritize dinner with friends, travel, sleep, watching Netflix over this. As I think about it more and more, I realize that this is something that means a lot to me and should probably be prioritize over others.

First Friday Favorites!

First Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday everyone! Are you excited for the weekend? I know I am. I have a lot of great posts planned for the next couple of weeks, but I kept thinking of these little random things that I wanted to share. They didn’t really have a place in any of my other posts and couldn’t really stand alone as their own posts. Then I realized, I have these little random thoughts pretty frequently. My brain is filled with little thoughts that could be parts of different blog posts.

Fitness Update – Week One

Fitness Update – Week One

So here is my first update after my first official week on the fitness train. All in all it went okay; not great but also not terrible. The week was not the best I could have done, but I am thinking of it as a good start. Overall, the week had ebbs and flows. There were a couple of days where I just felt like a blob (for lack of a better term) and didn’t want to do anything (including cooking). What I decided, is sometimes we have blob days and that is okay. But instead of letting one blob day ruin the whole week, let it mess with that day then bounce back. But lets talk about how things went.

It’s All About the…Fitness?

It’s All About the…Fitness?

I’ve written about my relationship with fitness and my trends with working out in past posts (you can find those here and here). Well I am back with an update on how things have been going lately. Probably unsurprisingly, I have been off my fitness game since I moved to Seattle. With everything that has been going on in my life (confused? read my last post!), fitness was the last thing on my mind.

All (or some) of the Good Eats in Memphis

All (or some) of the Good Eats in Memphis

So I realized that I hardly ever post about Memphis, which is pretty ironic because I live here. So I decided I need to start sharing some of my Memphis favorites with you beautiful people. This week we are talking about some of my favorite restaurants, because one of the things I love about Memphis is all of the great places to eat. Now these are all of the places I love to go if I want a good hearty meal, meaning health food is not on the menu… Or it is, but that so isn’t what you should order.

New York Trip, Part 3: When Ya Just Gotta Get Out of the City

New York Trip, Part 3: When Ya Just Gotta Get Out of the City

Don’t get me wrong, I love New York, but sometimes you just gotta get out and smell the roses outside of the city. The friend I stayed with during my trip to New York actually lives about an hour outside of the city, which means she has a car. This was awesome because we were able to explore the area surrounding the city for a couple of days. For some reason I never realized how beautiful New England was until I explored it on this trip. So here are some of my favorite things that I did.
