Family, friends, yoga = a day of bliss

A few weeks ago, Stacey and Meghan and I decided to check out a new yoga studio. Called PlanBreathe and located in Plaza Midwood, it’s a tiny brick building tucked among homes, and you might miss it if you don’t know where to look. If you find your way there, however, you’ll be glad you…

Keeping with the spirit of adventure (Warrior Dash, here I come)

As you may recall, I decided 2012 is officially my year to say yes to new things. The last time I checked in, I cited hot yoga (which I began in December, so I guess that’s not officially 2012, but it’s still new to me), rock climbing, working out at 6 a.m. (boot camp class), Zumba (which…

These clothes cost, um, how much exactly?

Before Outdoor Nation changed their web site, they used to hand out points for activity on the site. One could then redeem points for fun outdoor gear. Before you run over and sign up, I must tell you that sadly, they took away their point system several months ago. They’ve replaced it with a series of…

Spring is just around the corner

It’s been a roller coaster of a month. In the past three weeks, I have lost one of my best friends due to an argument. Daily life feels emptier without him to talk to. I have started questioning what it means to lean on people, rely on people, and how to handle when those people let you down. Shortly…

It’s all relative.

About a week and a half ago, I decided to attend a new yoga class at the studio I’ve been attending. This class was different for two reasons: it has been called the most difficult yoga class the studio offers, and Stacey was unable to make it so I would be attempting the new challenge alone.…

A girl’s guide to a beer festival (ok fine, it’s for guys too)

So, I’ve been to a few beer festivals over the years and I’ve always really enjoyed them. This past weekend I attended Charlotte Oktoberfest, and it was so much fun! Every time I go to a festival, though, I see people walking in the door with their pretzel necklaces on, and I think, “Oh yeah,…

Dive bar + a little bit of humor = a fun Sunday afternoon

Meghan kicked ass at this past weekend’s Warrior Dash, and I was able to see her fly across that finish line as if dealing with walls, fire and mud were no big deal. A celebratory drink was in order so where better than to go than a nearby dive bar? Little did we know we’d…

Learning to use my feet again

The silver lining to all this health stuff I’ve been going through is that it’s a perfect time to try something new. And by that I mean I’ve been wanting to get a pair of Vibram Five Finger shoes forever. But I didn’t love the idea of only being able to run short distances to…

‘like peeing in your pants’

Ah, I turn twenty-thirteen today. Love being in my 20s. I was going to write a post going on and on about how wonderful all those in my life are (yes, I am talking about you!) but I have been doing that a lot lately. Instead I’ll show you some of my super-cool presents. Pampering…

Even better than backpacking

So, my meeting with Caleb didn’t go as I had planned it to. In fact, I had been scheduled to be at my sister’s on March 1. Which meant I would have been there when Caleb arrived on March 3. But my little stint in the hospital changed those plans. And as I spent time…
