Last night I got home from work and was ready to hop on the Peloton. In the basement. However, Mark was on a video work call that would’ve required me walking into the field of view. I had to schlepp a giant fan with me so crawling by wasn’t an option (but I did consider it). So instead, I headed ...

I tried convincing Mark that he should write this blog post. It has been a LONG time since he made a writing appearance on the blog and I know people would appreciate hearing from him. (Show him some love in the comments and maybe we can get him out of hiding!) I wanted Mark to write because when ... Read More about 20 Minute Sweet and Spicy Noodles + Weekly Menu
You guys, I'm not kidding. Working during the summer in Michigan is just shy of torture. We get so few GORGEOUS days and to waste them indoors and/or at a computer seems sinful. Seriously! I've been using PTO here and there (for no "good reason") and no regrets! I've decided that this summer, I'm ... Read More about Family Friday (vol. 97): Can I Take an Early Retirement?
Monday night, hellllooooo. I listened to my body – so sore. I skipped my workout. I also gave into my weakness for TV and wine. Some nights, a girl just needs such a thing. Thingssssssss, I mean.

In a tiny way. It’s very empowering – haha! I scheduled myself off this afternoon so that I could do a lot of ... Read More about Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki
I am quitting my job! Okay, not really. But I really want to after weekends like this. As Mark said tonight, it seemed like a long weekend. We did alllllllll the things. Friday evening started with swimming, despite the 66 degree weather. I’d like to say it was just the kids, but it was me, too. ... Read More about Easy Hoisin Shrimp + Weekly Menu
Yesterday, Mark and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. Similar to the day we got married, the weather was 70 and sunny and we soaked it in. I mean, once we were able to leave work and head out around 4pm anyway. We stopped by a few local outdoor bars before grabbing pizza in an open-air loft ...

Two more days of work before the long weekend! I got up early to blog because 1) working out wasn’t happening – my quads need a rest day and 2) I was way under-motivated to sit at a computer last night. It was 80 and sunny! I wanted to play outside and try to rush a slab of ribs on the grill. For ... Read More about Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Creamy Lemon Dressing
