run-are-you-in-healthyishappyblog

I can’t even begin to describe my level of excitement for this announcement! I closely followed the official bloggers from this past year and loved reading about their journeys and training – especially after I got selected to guest blog for the 2014 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and completed my first 10K! It was such an […]

Liebster Award… Round 2

liebster-award-healthyishappyblog

The Liebster Award is back, and I was lucky to be nominated not once, but twice! Thank you to Rachel (CLE Fashionista) and Kim (Born Bred Buttered) for selecting me. I did my first Liebster Award post back in April and it was fun to share a little about myself & connect with other bloggers. Wondering […]

A Snapshot of My Life

IN. LOVE.

In an effort to keep up with this blog more regularly, I thought I’d start with something kind of easy but still fun – a photo snapshot/Instagram recap type post (since Instagram is basically just a mini photo blog). I do really hope to get back into posting more regularly and I hope this will help […]

Recipe: Broccoli Cheddar Soup With Irish Beer Cheese

recipe-broccoli-cheddar-soup-irish-beer-cheese

There’s something about fall that just makes me crave soup. Obviously the cooler temperatures and leaves changing call for something warm and comforting. Plus with Mike and I being under the weather, it was a necessity. One of my favorites is broccoli cheddar soup, which is traditionally not very healthy. However I followed a recipe […]

Put-in-Bay Celebrations + My 25 Before 25 List Update

5K finishers

For my 25th birthday, I decided to plan a weekend around a 5K race: the 5K at Put-in-Bay. Mom booked a bed & breakfast for her, myself, and Mike. Some other friends decided to join us as well, so they booked a suite at the Put-in-Bay Resort. Minus some logistical issues, lack of cell-phone service […]

The September Effect (a.k.a. that time when 3 weeks flew by…)

Mohican Weekend Adventures: Camping, river rafting, & a vlog

mohican-weekend-adventures-healthyishappyblog-1

Over the weekend, Mike and I met up with my friend Bri down in Loudonville, Ohio to go camping for the weekend at Mohican State Park Campgrounds. Our trip down took about 2 hours, however we left a little late so once we got to our destination it was pitch black and we couldn’t see […]

Becoming a Vlogger

155e91af8392c0630a2cb4768bc43607

What the heck is a vlogger? Well, it’s a “Video Blogger” – i.e. a person who blogs, just through videos. Vlogging is something I’ve been wanting to try (and okay, I have actually tried it before and failed miserably), but after BlogFest and hearing how much Blogilates recommended having a YouTube channel, I decided to […]

California Love (Part 2 of our Anaheim trip)

And of course I couldn't resist showing off some #CHAARG pride by throwing up the bolts!

It’s official – we love California. I know, we only spent a short amount of time there but let’s face it… it’s California. It’s awesome. In my last post, I talked alllll about the conference I went to in Anaheim. However, we arrived in California early & stayed a couple of days extra so we […]
