  • favorite tuna salad sandwich

    I know tuna salad tends to get a bad reputation but I absolutely love it! I try to incorporate it at least once a week because it’s not only a great source of protein but also provides heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Whenever I feature my tuna melts on Instagram, I get a lot of questions about how I make my… [Continue Reading]

Will Run for Pizza

When Chad got home from work we immediately changed and headed back out on a 4 mile run. It felt so good to get out and run together – injuries, schedules and other things had forced us to run solo over the past couple of weeks so we were really happy to get to go together this evening. When we…

Grilled Veggies

Since we were low on food in the house after our trip we decided to go to one of our favorite places for our mid-day meal: Crisp! (Other trips to Crisp can be found here and here.) We started off with drinks… And in no time our food was ready and we were digging in! I normally get the same…

Nice to Be Home

Well we didn’t wake up here this morning… (source) But I gotta say, as much as I loved hearing the sound of the ocean and the seeing the waves crash against the beach upon rising, there’s also just something so nice about being home when you’ve been away. If you missed my vacation: Fun, Sun and Moms Happy Campers Healthy…

Home Again, Home Again

We made it back to Charlotte! Last night ended up being a ton of fun. Great food, great people – and overall really nice event. Despite not staying out too late, we managed to sleep until nearly 10am!  It’s always such a shock to me when this happens because it’s so unusual for me.  I always know that it must mean…

We had another great day! Being able to just walk out to the ocean whenever really makes me reconsider living anywhere but on the coast! It’s just so soothing and relaxing to walk along the beach and feel the water below your feet and hear the crash of the waves.  It reminds me of this song every time! After breakfast…

I chose the American Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, bacon, oven roasted tomato, breakfast potatoes, wheat toast, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee! It’s looking a little overcast right now so I’m not sure what the…

The Italian Pie

Hi there! I took my walk and did my yoga and boy did it feel good! It also made me tired.   Chad and I usually do pizza + movie night on Friday nights and tonight was no different… We headed to The Italian Pie – another restaurant on our “Restaurant To-Do” list – just another plus 🙂 We didn’t have…

Light as Air

I’ve had a pretty productive morning! We got our brand new ceiling fan installed in the living room so there will be a little more light + air in there…two things I’m very fond of 🙂 A definitely improvement if you ask me!  And just in time for the hot hot heat of the summer  After the installation guys finished…

As Good As It Smells

I ended up getting not only a living-room yoga session in this afternoon but also a nice (slow) 4-mile run!  It felt so good.  I need to get used to running in the heat again. And apple and peanut butter held me over perfectly until dinner. Which was super colorful thanks to these guys: Chad claims he doesn’t like peppers…so…
