Week in the Life: Friday, November 21

November 22, 2014

morning // I wake up at 5:30, take Dutch on a walk, and then head to the gym for a quick 30-minute workout on the elliptical. Best way to start my day! I go home, take a shower, and then get ready for the day, while listening to Slate’s Serial Spoiler Specials podcast. I don’t always […]

Week in the Life: Thursday, November 20

November 21, 2014

morning // I wake up at 6am (40 degrees this morning – brr!), take Dutch on his morning walk, and then go for a “wog.” It’s hard and I kinda hate most of it, so that’s fun. I come home, write my “week in the life” post for yesterday, take a shower, and then plop myself […]

Week in the Life: Wednesday, November 19

November 20, 2014

morning // Since I went to bed late (for me) the night before, I decided to skip my morning workout in favor of sleep (best decision). I woke up around 6:15 and it. was. freezing. Guys, this is COLD for Florida! I bundled up, Dutch wore his penguin sweatshirt, and we went for a walk. Then, […]

Week in the Life: Tuesday, November 18

November 19, 2014

morning // Another early morning start for me! I wake up around 5:15, get dressed, take Dutch on a walk, and then walk over to the apartment gym. I do a quick, 30-minute interval workout on the stationary bike while watching an episode of Friday Night Lights. Afterwards, I shower and get ready for work. My […]

Week in the Life: Monday, November 17

November 18, 2014

Today, I’m starting a fun challenge: Week in the Life! That means I’ll be attempting seven days of blogging in a row. OY! Let’s see if I can manage it. Ha. I heard about the challenge from a few bloggers who participated, but it seemed more like a scrapbooking exercise than anything else. Then, Kelly […]

Five for Friday (v. 38)

November 14, 2014

1) I started listening to Christmas music this week. I’ve also been lighting the above candle since this weekend. Go ahead, judge me. I don’t really care. I felt like listening to Christmas music, so I am. I’ve never listened to Christmas music this early in the season, but it just felt right. And who says […]

The Tampa Bay Project: Dachshund’s Bar & Grill

November 11, 2014

One of my goals for my Tampa Bay Project is to visit 10 non-chain restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. I mentioned this in the original post, but for someone who has grown up in the area, I am embarrassingly unfamiliar with Tampa points of interest. And when it comes to restaurants, I tend to […]

Five For Friday (v. 37)

November 7, 2014

1) I had a dream this week that I was diagnosed with a disease that meant I had to get both my legs amputated. It was one of those dreams where I kept waking up, but I was still “in” the dream. Ever have those? So disconcerting. Moral of the story – let’s not take […]

October Reads

November 4, 2014

It’s November! This month is packed with fun things: Dutch’s third annual “Running of the Weiners” race, the Turkey Trot (I think this is my seventh or eighth year doing it!), Thanksgiving, my birthday, and a fun road trip to Savannah. Woo! Today, I wanted to take the time to review the books I read […]

TGIF (v. 7)

October 24, 2014

I found the above photo yesterday morning when I was scrolling through an old photo album on Facebook. It made me laugh! For those that don’t know, in 2009, my mom and I adopted Dutch from my great-aunt who could no longer keep him. (He was snapping at her grandkids too often.) My first-ever dog, […]
