Hey, hey guys! I’m going to be a little cliche here and say CAN YOU BELIEVE THE YEAR IS BASICALLY HALF OVER? What.
I’m not complaining — I’m a summer girl through and through and can’t get enough of dirt, sun and lake water during these warmer months. It’s also been nice to get back on the trails before work… I missed my morning running buddy Paige!
I figured I’d catch up with you guys and share a little bit about what’s been going on around these parts!
Current books: I’ve been on a book binge lately and recently finished Sharp Objects. You guys, it’s probably one of the best thriller books I’ve read in a while and way better than Gone Girl. I usually have suspicions of who the culprit is in these types of books, but I was quite literally knocked off my feet when I read the last few pages of this book. It’s a good one ,for sure!
Current shoes: THE NEW NANO 5’s! I got to test them out for work and love the look of them. They feel much sturdier than the 4’s. Coming from someone who literally lives in her Reebok Lifters, this is a big deal.

Current music: Spotify. When it actually works at my office.
Current guilty pleasure: a Costco sized box of ginger kombucha because I decided I should spend $20 on fermented tea or something like that. (I love, love, love kombucha — I just hate how expensive it is).
Current drink: Marley Coffee. I’m obsessed.
Current food: The caramelized onion cheddar block from Trader Joes and a Costco case of peaches. Not together. OH EM GEE.
Current shows: Parenthood. Max + Crosby Braverman are my boys.
Current wish list: All the Lululemon sports bras because I don’t fit the cliche of a CrossFitter enough without spending oodles of $$ on fancy (BUT SO COMFY!!!!!) sports bras.
Current needs: A massage. A solid night’s sleep. A trip to the lake with my Summer girl and family.
Current triumphs: My plants are starting to bloom! YAY for veggies!! Oh, and I bought a new car 🙂 With 200k less miles than mile old car. That’s a triumph. #TeamHonda
…and… I got Ian and our two best couple friends to compete in their first team competition with me! We had a blast and I’m so, so happy that Ian’s jumped on the CrossFit bandwagon.
Current bane of my existence: My neighbors parking in front of my garage -_- #FirstWorldProblems
Current indulgence: Strawberry Rhubarb pie from a 9pm King Soopers run earlier this week.
Current excitement: Going to the lake in a few weeks!!! I miss my second home so, so much. Oh, and getting more and more into yoga. I’ll never be a hard-core yogi as my flexibility is pretty much non-existent, but it feels so GOOD to streeeetch.
