Chicago is only a quick hour flight from my home in Minneapolis and is a great city for inspiration, shopping, and eating. I recently spent a few days there to do some fall shopping and to enjoy the beautiful city. … Continue reading
First things first, I am not a cook. Or baker. But since I’ve become more serious about running, I’ve really focused on trying to eat better (real) food. Its pretty easy to create healthy meals and snacks like my amazing … Continue reading
I received a few questions about my meal prep routine after sharing on Instagram. Before I became a runner I used to eat a lot of not-so-good food during the week, because I was terrible at packing breakfasts and lunches. … Continue reading
I recently took a quick work trip to New York City but was able to squeeze in a little time for shopping and exploring. NYC is not my favorite place, but I try to be inspired where I can be!
(Okay I’m a little embarrassed by that title but it’s cute right!) It’s Easter weekend which is one of my favorite holidays for decorating– so much pink! Everything is new again and the flowers are *almost* ready to bloom in … Continue reading
After slowly remodeling each room in my house, I’ve finally gotten to my kitchen. I’ve waited on this remodel because I knew it was going to be the priciest and like every project, I want to do it right and with quality materials so it lasts.
My parents knew the woman who built my house back in 1950 and she told them stories of how her husband was mad at the people who installed the birch cupboards because some of the doors have seams in them.

If you follow my instagram feed, you may know my passion for all things football. Every year I have a super Bowl Party with the goal of the perfect party spread.
My talented friends and I work very hard to construct the menu based on our teams colors and spend a lot of time picking the right 2 colored sprinkles out of the rainbow sprinkle jar.
