Earlier this week, I met up with a bunch of my friends for dinner at El Ray in DC.


I’ve mentioned before that my friend Jess is moving to Amsterdam (she leaves at the beginning of August!! Ahh!) and my friend Vic is starting business school in a few weeks, so it was a fun night of celebrations all around.

Since it was Tuesday, we decided to order a bunch of tacos and pitchers of margaritas. Why? Because why not!


I wound up getting one steak taco, one pork taco, and one fish taco. They were all delicious and each had their own tasty sauce that dripped all down my hands. So good!


While we were there, we ran into my friend Jojo (aka Mary) who you may remember is one of my best friends from my old job. I hadn’t seen her in almost a month (!!) which was entirely too long. It was so great to catch up with her!!

Having fun events like this in the middle of the week are so much fun, and I’m so glad I have such a great group of girlfriends who like to make plans during the week. I’m going to miss Jess so much when she leaves, and I’m sure I won’t see Vic too much once she dives into school, so this was great way to spend some time with them.


Such a fun Tuesday!

Question of the day: Do you like making social plans during the week?

WIAW #82: Grandma's Cookies

First and foremost, thank you all for your well wishes regarding my grandpa’s surgery. Luckily he is doing GREAT and is even awake and talking. I hope to stop by the hospital today or tomorrow to visit him, which just makes me so thankful that he’s here in DC instead of at his usual hospital in [...]

Workouts Lately

It’s been a little while since we’ve chatted about my latest fitness routine, so I thought today would be a good time for an update. As most of you probably know, I have been slowly but surely working my way through the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide eBooks, a 12-week nutrition and exercise program designed to [...]

Summer Weekend at Home!

Finally, a weekend this summer where we weren’t on the road traveling from place to place! While I do love traveling during the summer and appreciate a good road trip as much as the next girl, I feel like we have spent way too much time away from home lately, and it was really nice [...]

The Return of Weeknight Sports

For those of you who have been around for a while, you may remember that last spring I played kickball on the National Mall on Wednesday nights. It was such a blast (even though I’m pretty terrible at kickball) that I decided to join my friends for another weeknight sporting activity this summer- flag football! [...]

This is How I Feel When...

Hi friends! Like most of our generation, I appreciate the humor of a good animated GIF now and then. I’ve seen a few other bloggers post their favorite animated GIFs, and then come up with clever captions/scenarios to match (love this one!). Because I love reading these posts so much, I thought I’d take a shot at [...]

Flex Fridays are the Best Fridays

Good morning, and happy Friday! Today is another one of my glorious flex Fridays, and I am loving this unexpected day out of the office. Flex Fridays are the best Fridays! I started out my morning with a 4ish mile run with Anne! It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve worked out together, so I was [...]
