#runCLE // 2015 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Official Ambassador


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


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 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


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


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


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 […]
