The Only Workout I Don’t Hate

Imagine jumping out of bed on a Saturday morning with the comparable level of excitement that a child has on Christmas to, get this – work out. Pfft. Ridiculous right? Anybody who claims to love working out has to be some sort of sociopath. A sociopath with a BMI of 18.5 and a tush you…

Whole Wheat Oats n’ Honey Bread

Is there anything better than carbs fresh bread? Since quarantine started, I’ve been channeling my inner Barefoot Contessa and putting my KitchenAid stand mixer to good use. Since flour and yeast were flying off the shelves like the new hot toy on Christmas Eve, I decided to jump on the quarantine bread-making bandwagon. Never having…

Kicking it OLD School

Going back to school in your mid 30’s certainly comes with its challenges. Picture this: A 35-year-old woman sitting in the last available chair at her local Starbucks with a MacBook on her lap (because you can’t swing a dead cat in there without hitting someone working on the 3rd draft of their thesis), reading…

Always a Bride, Never a Bridesmaid.

Being a woman in my mid 30’s with a pretty extensive social circle, you’d think that I would have been in multiple weddings by now. But the truth is, I’ve managed to get by unscathed in the dreaded act of being a bridesmaid. Funny enough, the only wedding I have ever been in is my…
