Obviously most of you are aware of my 50 state goal by now. This year was rough for me because I felt like I had missed out on so many travel opportunities. Most of that was based off the fact that I now have a dog and a house... if my mom was unable  to… Continue reading #SoloAdventuresPartOne



Well, I'm a month late, but I'm finally sitting down to write my blog about our South Carolina trip. Lucky for you, I'm planning to pre-write about my east coast adventures right after this, so you won't have to wait that long for it 🙂 Its Friday night, 5:45pm and I'm already in my pjs.… Continue reading #SouthCarolina

It has been quite the week for me. Yes, I know I still need to post about South Carolina, and I will. But I have other things going on right now that I need to talk about. Last week, I was offered the position of a Recruiter for Roaring Fork Restaurant Group – a Franchise… Continue reading #Stressed



I'm going to ignore how long it's been since I last posted because that's always what I start my blog posts with. I know I haven't posted about South Carolina yet - I will, just not today. I've had an interesting week for various reasons. We had after-work events two nights this week which made… Continue reading #LifeIsAnAdventure

I don’t really have much to write about today. The weekend was fairly busy. Friday night, Kelly and I went out in Waukesha to Friday Night Live and ended up spending most of the night at Boscoes (which I was totally cool with, they have a neat patio!). Saturday I went to CF, did a… Continue reading #PrayForHouston



Well, the bachelorette party was a success. No drama, lots of food and alcohol and good times had by all (at least I’d assume so). I gained (literally) ten pounds which was frustrating but it’s my own fault. Back on the train! Let’s talk about the main reason for this blog: my dog. I debated… Continue reading #DogsAreHard

The last couple weeks have been crazy. Kona has “allergies” so she’s been obsessively licking and biting her paws. I took her to the vet and they gave her a shot – that hasn’t helped so I get to go back tonight and pick up medication. We had a work Company Picnic that I organized… Continue reading #IAmExhausted



Let’s chat about my most recent vacation – SOUTH DAKOTA (State 35, for all of you who are counting with me). There were 4 of us, we drove 12 hours overnight (3 hours each) and made it to Badlands National Park just as the sun was rising. It. Was. BEAUTIFUL. We were all SO tired… Continue reading #SouthDakotaLovin

Fair warning, this post is going to be a bit more "from the heart" than you've had recently. I've made a few realizations about myself lately and I'm trying to work through them as well as I can, but I think writing it out is going to help. I don't have much self confidence. I don't… Continue reading #ConfidenceIsKey

Summertime is busy, man. Between Crossfit, work, a dog, a social life... I AM EXHAUSTED, ALWAYS. Actually, I'm PMSing and my biggest symptom is laziness (not even overeating, weird, right?) Sorry if that's TMI - but it's the truth. A few things have happened since last week when I updated. On Friday, we did the… Continue reading #ThankYouMom
