The following things are my jam right now…

Kentucky in 2 Weeks!

I’ll be spending a few days in Louisville in a couple weeks! Excited to teach a TRX course, see my people, and hopefully score some of the warm weather they’ve been having. See y’all soon! Who wants to go play in the park(s) with me?!

Daylight Savings This Weekend:

I saw a friend post something about it being this weekend & I’m so ready for Spring I immediately thought, “DON’T F*** WITH ME ON THIS.” But then I looked it up & it’s true! Spring forward this Sunday! #hallelujah

Photos of the D.C. trip w/ my Momma

I’ll post more soon, but I had the best time with my mom last week in D.C.! Five days with just the two of us was awesome and not something we’ve done for a while now.

Flash Fit Club Group Session:

I’m stoked to start working out with some new peeps next week! Starting on Monday, whoever’s joined either of my TRX online Fit Clubs will get weekly check-in emails and tips from me for the next month. We’ll all start the 4 week session together for a little group support. If you want in, sign up here by Monday morning. (It’s $79 but you can save 15% by using the coupon code below.)

Walking Against Humanity:

A step-tracking app that offers the same great shock value as the Cards Against Humanity game. It’s hilarious and you can connect with friends and talk trash about your steps for the day. So fun!

Tango and I have just about 10 more days in Kentucky before we head out. We’re soaking up all the wide open spaces and time with my friends and family while we can. While I’m always bummed to be leaving my people, I’m also excited for an extended trip to Canada to spend a couple months with my man-friend and the boys. Since I haven’t been writing a ton here lately, here’s what’s been going on…

Making: Sweet Tea… pretty much every day. I’m going to enjoy it for my last week here in KY and then I’ll have to put the kibosh on all that sugar.

Wanting: To blog more. I’m working on 5 posts at once and can’t get any of them out. Hopefully that’ll change in the coming weeks. I miss this outlet.

Reading: I’m slowly making my way through Kathryn Hepburn’s autobiography, “Stories of My Life.”  [Read more…]

Things (& Links) That Are My Jam Right Now…

{Things That Are Currently My Jam}

Kentucky in the Summer. Yes it’s hot and humid, but summer will gone before we know it so I’m taking full advantage.

Louisville Parks. We’ve been to either Cherokee, Seneca, or The Parklands every day since I’ve been back. I’m not mad about it. Neither is Tango…

Stranger Things. Mom and I watched all 8 episodes last week! LOVED it.

Bug Spray. Mosquitos are everywhere here. Don’t give me the all-natural spray… I need some napalm to take these bitches out.

Meeting up w/ friends for walks, runs, bike rides, or workouts. I wrote this post about alternate ways to socialize (other than meeting for meals/drinks) and have been trying to put that into practice more often. (Aside from when people want to meet at my favorite restaurants…)

Steel City Pops. You guys. There’s a popsicle store here.

All the kiddos. Appx. 1,000 friends of mine had kids since I left last year. It’s fun meeting up with my buds to workout or play outside with their little ones and I’m loving all the different parenting styles. It was hilarious seeing my friend Jess yelling “What the hell’s the matter with you?!” as she watched her youngest (of 4) bypass their water bottle and the water fountain to drink out the communal dog bowl on the ground at the playground.

Making a dent my Kentucky Summer Wish List. I’ve marked off the things I’ve done so far from this post.

Labor Day Plans. I’m traveling the rest of my weekends that I’m in Kentucky, but I’m home all holiday weekend long. We’re hitting a Canoe/Kayak/SUP Demo on the lake, heading to the YUM Center to cheer on the UofL Women’s Volleyball team, riding bikes in the Mayor’s Hike, Bike, and Paddle event, and who knows what else. I’m stoked.

Kentucky Summer Wish List

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetI already know you want my shirt. It’s available here.

I’ve got somewhere around 6-8 weeks here in my home state of Kentucky and I’m STOKED. There are so many things that I love about being here in the summertime and even though I’m arriving more towards the end of summer, the weather will still be nice enough to play, workout, and enjoy fabulous meals outside for weeks. Here’s all I plan to do over the next several weeks…

UPDATE: The things I’ve gotten to so far have been crossed off!  [Read more…]
