Meant to be?

turkey-cheering

Happy Thanksgiving to my lovely American friends! While you’re watching football and eating turkey, I’ll be lonely at work and unpacking boxes. Have some pie for me! Almost exactly a month ago I made the decision to 1) buy a place and 2) move. For being a really big decision, everything went surprisingly smooth and […]

Brainpower

If I had the appropriate brain power, I’d start this post by linking to a fabulously scientific article about how the brain can only handle so much at one time and then I’d segue into how I’ve basically been brain-dead all week. With the lack of a scientific article, let’s talk about how I haven’t […]

Sustainable Active Living

My original plan (per CoSchedule) was to give you guys some ideas of Christmas gifts for runners, buuuut, since my move did not quite go as planned, I had all of zero time this weekend to put a post together. Originally, I wasn’t going to post today, but when I saw The Fit Dish topic for […]

I have a secret….

Yay! Stampede grounds!!

This is probably the worst kept secret ever as I wasn’t terribly quiet about it, I just didn’t yell it from the rooftops. Now I’m certain you’re all on the edge of your seats excited, but I promise you, it’s not that exciting. Well, it is for me….. So……. I moved this weekend. Again. That makes it […]

Link Love: 11/22

Good Saturday morning! I hope you’re curled up with a cup of coffee and are ready to read some of my favourite links of the week. Unfortunately my weekend won’t exactly be relaxing – I can’t share all the details yet (I know, more #vagueblogging) but all will be revealed on Monday. (Spoiler: it’s probably […]

Why I Don’t Use a DSLR Camera

DSLR Pros -Cons

About a million years ago when I was married, I also moonlighted as an assistant photographer to my then husband. We had a ton of camera gear, did weddings and family shoots and had a lot of fun creating images. I learned the ins and outs of aperture, shutter speed, ISO, Photoshop and what lens […]

Thursday Thoughts

chowder chowdown

Woo-freaking-hoo! One more sleep until Friday….buuuut, I’m off work tomorrow, so I guess today is my Friday! Thursday’s are for being crazy and random and I sure am today! 1. Running and blogging go hand-in-hand. Every time I start a running break (I’m currently on one until late January) I struggle to blog. It’s not […]

A Day in the Life of Merlin

We_were_on_a_break

I’ve always enjoyed a peek into the life of other bloggers – seeing how they spend their day-to-day and fit in exercise, food prep (a good 90% of blogs I follow fit into this) and anything else the cram into a day. Since I’m on a break from running I don’t have much exciting to […]

TYT: Vegas

IMG_0012

Yay, Tuesday!! A quick disclaimer – I was hoping to show you pictures of my Fabletics outfits and the clothes I picked up in Vegas (hey! I bought clothes in Vegas!) but my house is a mess and I probably spent too long playing on Pinterest, so I didn’t have time to organize and take pictures. […]

Ragnar Vegas Recap

deep breath I’ve been home for a week and I’m still at a bit of a loss for how, exactly, to recap my Ragnar experience. I’m sure I’m going to leave out a ton, but let me say this up front: I loved it and I cannot wait to do another! With that out-of-the-way, let’s […]
