I’m sorry it’s been so long since my last post. I still need to do a post on my 100 miler last December (my friend made an incredible video documenting it that I’ll share asap). But while it’s fresh on my mind and I have hours in the car, airport and plane, I wanted to… Continue reading Grand Canyon Rim to Rim (1 Day)
Hellooooooo!!! I haven’t posted in ages. To be honest, our three bundles of joy that were born in a timespan of 2 years and 9 months have become quite the handful, and it’s been rough the last 6+ months or so. But I don’t want to dwell on that, and did want to share this long overdue… Continue reading Boogie Boy
When I first heard about Great Wolf Lodge last summer, I knew it was a place that I needed to bring our kids! And because Landri, Rex and I just returned from GWL in Grapevine, TX, I thought I’d do a blog post reviewing it for y’all. Also, since I was able to really test… Continue reading Great Wolf Lodge & Underwater Camera Product Review
Wow! What a fabulous trip! I was able to successfully navigate another adventure on only juice (read part 1 about my Juice Feast here; trip was on days 63 & 64). I must say, it sure is an amazing feeling to return from vacation feeling completely refreshed, rejuvenated, and not all bloated from eating and… Continue reading Arizona: Acupuncture, Float Therapy & More!
Today I was fortunate enough to venture out to visit another Texas hill country swimming hole, Hamilton Pool (read about Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well here). I was joined by my yoga/running friends Melissa, David and Mike, and it was our second attempt to visit Hamilton Pool as our first reservation was canceled due to… Continue reading TX Hill Country Swimming Holes: Part 3, Hamilton’s Pool (Dripping Springs)
Welcome to Part 2 of my 2016 Texas Hill Country Swimming Hole Series (read Part 1 here)! Today my fellow yoga teacher training grad/running friend Melissa and I visited Jacob’s Well. You may remember her from a guest post last year and/or from the New Orleans Marathon earlier this year. Anyhow, like Blue Hole, Jacob’s… Continue reading TX Hill Country Swimming Holes: Part 2, Jacob’s Well (Wimberley)
Happy summer everyone! It’s incredible that it’s already basically August and that football will be kicking off again in just a few short weeks! I haven’t posted much this summer so I thought I’d fill you in on our latest adventures (minus the swimming hole). The summer began with the purchase of a giant swing set… Continue reading 2016 Summer Recap
It’s summer and this is Texas, and that only means one thing. It is hot. So hot in fact that I woke up to steamed windows at my house this morning and I thought, this is going to be the perfect day to embark on my latest quest! Yesterday, while sunbathing at the pool, I decided… Continue reading TX Hill Country Swimming Holes: Part 1, Blue Hole (Wimberley)
I’ve wanted to go glamping ever since I heard about it several years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I love traditional camping, but glamping sounds like an amazing, unique and fun way to enjoy the outdoors while still having all of the comforts from home at your fingertips! You see, glamping is defined as “glamorous camping,”… Continue reading Our Glamping Staycation
I survived not only Bourbon Street of the French Quarter in New Orleans, but more importantly, another full marathon! Previously I had only run two full 26.2’s and they were both back in 2008 (Houston and San Antonio). At the time I swore I’d never run another. My official race times were around 4:44/4:45 for… Continue reading New Orleans Marathon – a PR for me!
