Fitness Report & Philly Museum of Art

Happy mid week! This week has been especially stressful for me but I don’t feel like talking about that. How about some health and fitness updates? Last week, I killed it on the workouts!

Friday, I decided to stay home from Bullpen which was a good thing because I ended up getting an important phone call. I did my C25K run and then popped

Rob’s 32nd Birthday Celebrations

This weekend, Rod and I had absolutely no plans at all. It was Rob’s birthday on Saturday so I left it up to him what we would do. On Saturday, I had made plans with his parents to go out to dinner but Rob decided he wanted to stay in and cook dinner himself. He likes to make pasta and his mom had never had

Broad Street Run 2015

This past weekend was the 36th annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run! I ran this race in 2010 and 2011, back when it was 10,000 people smaller and a bit simpler.

I went on Friday after doing a quick stop at school for a weekly thing I always miss. I was also

WIAW: Pumpkin Time!

Since I’ve been slacking at blog posts lately, I thought I would make it a bit more fun for myself and do some typical blogger posts. Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday! This will just include recipes or yummy foods I’ve been having as of late.

Pumpkin Everything

I’m not obsessed with pumpkin like the rest of America seems to be. I just made some

PB Eggs, Rugby, & Philadelphia

First off, AMOHAME2 from SparkPeople was surprised to see peanut butter cups (in the form of Easter eggs) were back in the house. I just had to get the evidence while grocery shopping… How can I deny that cute face? On the bright side, he tries to eat them all so I don’t have very many. Haha, not good for him either but he makes
