How To Road Trip with Your Dog

How to Road Trip with Your dog

Road tripping is one of the best (and cheapest) ways to see the country. Going with your dog makes it even more fun. Road tripping with your dog can feel like a big undertaking, but with a little extra planning, it can be super smooth and ultra rewarding.

My dog Tango has been on multiple road trips with me in our 8+ years together. It’s hard to count how many times we’ve been back and forth across the U.S. and Canada over the years, including a 3 month road trip back in 2015.  I’ve learned a lot over the years and have since honed our routine.

Here’s how to get ready: [Read more…]

Travel Thoughts: Austin, Texas

I just returned from a week in Austin for a work trip and realized while I was having all these thoughts that I hadn’t done one of these ‘travel thoughts’ posts in a long time – several years, to be exact. So without further ado, here’s a list of stuff going through my head whilst cruising around Texas.  [Read more…]

Things & Links That Are My Jam Right Now

Derby Hat

Things That Are My Jam Right Now

YOU GUYS. This week is out of control. Here’s what I’m pumped about:

  1. Talk Derby To Me.
    It’s Derby Week, y’all. I’m getting my bets ready so I can bet from afar this year. Usually I go home to Louisville for Derby Week, but I’ve gotta work in Austin this week, so I can’t go. I’ve packed my outfit and hat though (not the one pictured, that’s my friend Sandy’s) which I’ll wear to an event cocktail party, so it’s fine.
  2. It’s also Summit Time!
    The annual TRX Summit is happening this weekend in Austin, which is why I’m headed there. 500 TRX trainers & enthusiasts from all over the world are congregating in Texas this weekend for a packed weekend of sessions and games. It’s like summer camp for TRX pros and I’m super excited to see everybody again.
  3. Cinco de Mayo! In Texas! 
    It’s crazy that all three of these events will be taking place on the same day. I’m ready though. Mexican food on the Mexican border > Mexican imitation food far away from the border.
  4. Karley!
    Hanging with my college climbing bud, Karley and her family. I haven’t seen her since my last trip to Austin and I can’t wait to meet her little girl.
  5. Austin.
    This is one of those cities I could see myself living in. It’s such a fun city and I’m READY for the warmth. I packed like 5 sets of shorts to bring with me and I’m really hoping the rain in the forecast will hold off a bit so I can work on a tan for these legs.

Life Currently… Coming Up For Air

Spring is coming!

Holy cow it’s been an eventful couple of months around here. I had to road trip to San Diego to move my things out of storage and up to Canada finally, I had a bunch of work and have been back and forth to the States a few times, and my husband had to have open heart surgery to remove an aneurysm from his aorta. Woof. The good news: I’m no longer paying for a storage unit, all my things are in one place, I have work, and my husband is alive. Glad game to the max. Here’s what else is going on:

Making: Lists. Who doesn’t love crossing s*** off after you’ve completed a task?

Wanting: My car’s issues to be covered by my warranty. I just dropped it off at the dealership to get serviced. Hopefully they figure out what’s leaking and why. Finger’s crossed.

Moving: I’m working on two new online workouts/programs so am currently testing those bitches out so I can get them filmed as soon as the snow is gone outside!

Reading: Just finished The Perfect Nanny and am need of discussing it with somebody asap! Has anybody out there read this?! How did you feel about the ending? [Read more…]

Whether you travel regularly for work or sporadically for pleasure, I believe in being as comfortable and efficient as possible while on the road or in the air. While I don’t think it’s necessary to go out and purchase all these things at once, accumulating them over the years has definitely made traveling easier and more enjoyable. Here are my faves that come with me on every trip I take: [Read more…]

Our Annual Couple’s March Madness Bracket Bet

The March Madness bet that we do as a couple every year!

So my man-friend (now husband) and I have had a March Madness bracket bet going on for the past 6 years. I first wrote about it here years ago, but if you’re new here, the stakes are good. Here’s how it goes down every March: Brackets have to be in before the first games (duh) and we share them on a Google Sheet that we can both check daily to see where we stand in points. As soon as one person receives the obvious win, they can start collecting on their prizes and have until the following year’s tournament to collect!

 

Winner receives the following:  [Read more…]

Fit Getaway Recap (& Info for Next Year!)

We had the best weekend in Santa Barbara! We went through quite a few bottles of Prosecco, danced our asses off to Beyoncé, got several TRX workouts in, had lots of good, deep conversation, and enjoyed as much sunshine as we could. At the end of the weekend, I wrote a check to the Santa Barbara Support Network to donate some our proceeds to help after the wildfires and mudslides.

Here are some photos from the weekend and at the bottom of the page, you can sign up to be notified on the next event’s details!  [Read more…]
