Sh*t People Say on Instagram

Sh*t People Say on Instagram

After taking a two month hiatus from Facebook, (kind of like Rihanna, but without a nude picture scandal), I spent more time with the types of social media that personally make me happy, laugh, and keep me inspired–Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram. I carved out more time to make the recipes I salivated over (and could actually …

Friday Night Foodie Night: Bowl of Ramen Noodle Goodness

Ramen Noodles_

When I’m craving a food, I lose all a good bit of ability to concentrate on anything else but said food. This happened last Friday afternoon. As productive as I tried to be, ramen encompassed my entire mind. I don’t know if it was the weather—it is starting to be the kind where you want to …

A sweaty affair, the {Running} Joneses, & my first vlog!

I’ve been having an affair. I can blame it on my RunKeeper app I just downloaded. I can blame it on having no more episodes of Murder, She Wrote to watch on Netflix. I can blame it on wanting to have better backgrounds in my post-workout pictures. Whatever I attribute it to, I have been …

My Epic FIRST Race Recap!

Wow. That pretty much sums up my trip home to Pittsburgh to run in my very first race, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon’s 5K. But since one-word posts don’t really make for interesting reading, I’ll elaborate. Oh, and I will totally blog about my trip home, as it was the most fabulous summer{ish} vacation …
