HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it, so let’s all do a happy dance a celebrate with skinny watermelon margs. Ha!
After an on-the-go week (+ laryngitis and a majorly sore throat…) I’m ready to chill out, enjoy the sun, and probably get some much-needed sleep. These last couple weeks have been super busy and SO MUCH FUN as Abra and I planned the UA x AK Workout + Brunch event at the Under Armour Brand House in downtown Chicago.
It all went down last Sunday and it was an amazing success. Most of all, it was empowering to see so many women getting their sweat on together. The strength I saw in the room went above and beyond physical appearances, so thank you to those of you who joined us!
Finally I’ve started to get excited for all things wedding. To be honest it took me a while because the whole planning a major event with a million different moving parts is a little daunting and scary. However, I feel much more prepared & excited for the big day. We’ve got 5 1/2 months to go and I know it’s going to fly by.
I know some of you may not be into wedding updates, that’s why I’m keeping them few and far between. However today is one of those days where we talk all about what’s happening! So grab a cup of coffee and get ready to read all about my wedding details (so far).
Ay ay, welcome to the freakin’ weekend — baby we about to have some FUN.
Seriously I haven’t been this excited about Memorial Day weekend in quite sometime. And the best part? We have NOTHING crazy planned. Maybe that’s why I’m looking forward to it so much. We’re going to hang around Chicago, enjoy some patio season weather, grill out, work on wedding stuff and just chill (with a lil Netflix of course).
Okay and I know this show isn’t on Netflix, but I desperately want to watch the Handmaid’s Tale. Oh and the new season of House of Cards come out on the 30th.
Hi guys! I hope you had your morning cup of coffee and the sun is shining wherever you are. I feel summer coming soon. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
It’s still a little too chilly for me to get my bike on in the mornings by the lake unless I really bundle up. Last week I went for a ride and couldn’t feel my hands for 30 minutes after.
This week was another crazy one. Not only did Tony finally quit his job (go babe, go!), but I found myself with a full fridge after testing more recipes for the Healthy Glow. Co than you can even imagine. It’s been busy and I’m ready to hit the pause button, kick up my feet, slam a GT’s grape divine kombucha and watch Netflix the entire weekend. (TELL ME YOUR FAV SHOWS!)
Granted, I do have to finish putting the final touches on our save the dates. Getting a little bit delirious over here.
Finally I’m sharing a few of our engagement photos with all of you!
Monday marked 7 months to go until our wedding (OMG!) so I figured it’s about time that you get to see all of these incredibly special photos that were shot back in March. My good friend Sarah was kind enough to take them for us and because she’s so ridiculously talented, I knew they would be completely perfect in every way.
We wandered over to Garfield Park Conservatory on a rainy Saturday afternoon and fell in love. If you’re ever looking for a place to do your engagement photos on a rainy day, this is my favorite spot.
This shoot felt so much like us — nature, dancing and each other. At one point we even danced to Mumford and Sons; you’ll know it when you see it.
Enjoy! And if you haven’t read our love story yet, you can find it here.
How are you guys? I mean seriously, how are you?
To be honest, I find myself sitting here feeling overwhelmed and slightly anxious for a plethora of different reasons. And it’s not because I’m watching Matthew Mcconaughey be extra awkward in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days or anything. Rather, I think I’m feeling a little chaotic because over the past few months life has gotten a little insane with work and now, our wedding.
Welcome Friday, I welcome you with open arms. ALSO apologies for missing last week’s weekend favorites. My good friend was in town and we shot engagement photos and some cool stuff for Under Armour Women.
This week has been insane, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Abra and I have been busy in the kitchen every single day cranking out recipes, and it looks like it will be the same for the next few weeks as we prepare for the Healthy Glow Co‘s second meal plan release and an exciting new 30 day April challenge. Look for more details on that SOON!
Another weekend is here. It’s as if I ask myself every day how life seems to be passing by so quickly. The later I get into my twenties, the more of a Grandma I’m turning into. This weekend I’ll be staying in to finish my taxes. It’s going to be a real rager (heavy sarcasm).
Not that I really mind one bit. I’ll take a jar of old people butterscotch candies (okay they actually are really good) and a marathon in front of the TV with a batch of cookies any day over going out and partying. That phase of my life is long gone.
I’m officially a Grandma in a 28 year old body.
