I’m a bad blogger

13 May

Well, hello there. It’s been awhile. Looking back at my blogging history, April is always a rough month for me, and this year was no different. I’ve been a bad blogger again.

I leave for Germany in less than two weeks… say what?! And I still want to finish all my vacation recaps from Italy (which was MONTHS ago) and Boston before I go. More travel posts to come in the next few weeks!

In the meantime, why don’t we cover some highlights from April since I didn’t blog THE ENTIRE MONTH…

Best Part

Spending a weekend in Boston with my parents and catching up with my cousin Alli. This was our first time visiting the city, and we absolutely loved it. There is so much history in the streets, and since we were there right before the marathon, you could really feel the unity and spirit. If you’ve never been, book your trip ASAP. I’ll post a recap soon!

Favorite Thing I Did

Touring the USS Constitution in Boston. I really love boats, and this one is especially cool. She is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat. And in case you didn’t guess, the ship was named after the Constitution of the USA, by none other than George Washington himself. It was one of my favorite stops on the Freedom Trail.

Favorite Thing I Ate

I cheated big time on my nutrition plan Easter Sunday – with good reason. We went to Limoncello in Boston’s Little Italy, and I ordered a very delicious veal parm. The meal was topped off with a stop at Mike’s Pastry and an enormous cannoli. Don’t tell my CrossFit coach.

Looking Forward to Most in May

A week in Berlin with Sebastian with essentially no plans. We’re going to try out new restaurants, meet up with friends and have the most relaxing time. CAN’T WAIT.


Hello April

1 Apr

I can’t remember the last time I was this happy see a new month arrive. March came in like a lion and went out like a lion hopped up on drugs. I can only hope April will get its crap together and finally gives us the warmer weather we’ve been waiting for. Please don’t make me spend another month in tights, scarves and boots. I’m ready for pretty sundresses and sunglasses.


OK, enough about the weather. Here are some highlights from March…

Best Part

Sebastian was here three out of five weekends. We’ve lucked out with him visiting in between work trips to the states. I was so spoiled being able to see him so often – and it was beyond great having him here.

Favorite Things I Did

I visited my friend Lindsay at the beginning of the month and we spent an afternoon at an indoor trampoline park. Best. Decision. Ever.

I also spent quite a few weekends at home visiting family. We hosted a Sunday morning pancake breakfast, complete with homemade maple syrup. And I caught up with the other side of the family at my Uncle Denny’s surprise 60th birthday party. Both were awesome – filled with good food and good company.

Favorite Thing I Ate

Sebastian and I made brunch plans at Sweet Pea Cafe when he was here a few weekends ago. I gave up meat for lent, so I opted for the California omelet with egg whites, avocado and tomato. It was pretty fantastic.

Places I Visited

Chapel Hill, NC, for a bff weekend and Kalamazoo, MI, for a wedding.


I started CrossFit this month. It’s intense, and I’m still getting the hang of it, but I’m loving the community atmosphere.

Books I Read

My book club finished The Fault in Our Stars in February, and we read Let’s Pretend This Never Happened in March. I’ve heard good things about the Divergent series, so might pick that up this spring.

Looking Forward to Most in April

I can’t wait to spend Easter weekend in Boston with my parents. Love it when I get quality time with the fam. And I’m excited to take my CrossFit program to the next level this month.

Cheers to what’s ahead!
