Big thanks to my mom for baby-sitting Ava last night so Tommy and I could go to dinner just the two of us to catch up and relax! A night out with each other was just what the doctor ordered with all of my travel this past year, our work schedules, and our little family finally (still!) working on becoming 100% healthy again.

Happy Monday everyone!
Hope your Monday is off to a great start. This past weekend was a busy, but good one. While Tommy studied for a certification for work, Ava, my mom, and I had a busy day together on Saturday (which you’ll hear about tomorrow). Tommy did take a study break on Saturday night to treat us to a hockey game! [Read more…]
Happy Friday folks!
Hope everyone had a wonderful week and has some fun weekend plans ahead. We have a couple gatherings/play dates scheduled along with some regular weekend agenda items – music class and errand-running.
Tommy and I had another (finally) date night!
We went to see Chris Cornell at the Strathmore. We had only been to the Strathmore one other time, but had loved it. The venue is just so cool and it’s also nice to do something out of the ordinary once in awhile – something being attending a musical performance of some kind, for us. [Read more…]
Happy Monday folks! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. My weekend was good, a little jam-packed but I got a lot of things done which is always good. I thought the perfect way to recap the weekend was via a chronological list. 🙂 [Read more…]
Happy Hump Day!
This morning started off with my regularly scheduled morning barre class. It kicked my butt (especially after missing a couple of weeks due to my vacation out West and to my half marathon training) and it was amazing.
After skipping a couple of months Tommy and I did an official “date night” last Wednesday. We went to ‘Chefs Behind Bars’, a culinary philanthropy event at Union Market in Northeast D.C. This was the second installment of Chefs Behind Bars – the first was in June at the Liaison Hotel. [Read more…]
Workout #5 on weekday #5 completed!
I went to a Vinyasa class at Vida Metropole this morning and it felt so good after not being able to attend any yoga class at all for almost 3 weeks (or workout regularly for that matter) because of scheduling conflicts and sudden travel plans. While I am certainly not an uber-experienced “yogi” by any means, I do like to think I tend to have good balance and that I am pretty flexible. Today, my balancing skills were just jacked. I was very wobbly and had to keep putting my foot down to stabilize myself. The perfectionist in me didn’t like that one bit, but I kept reminding myself to breathe and just listen to my body.
