• Cocktail Cruise + City Views

    Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week and are ready for the weekend! I don’t know about you, but I am ALWAYS ready for the weekend. Who’s with me?! Yesterday, my friend Kayley and I decided to go on a happy hour cruise with the Milwaukee Boat Line– and what a wonderful idea that was. The cruise was 90 minutes and it was absolutely AMAZING. (After the cruise, I told Nic we HAD to add this cruise to our bucket list of things to do together this summer (we added going to a movie in the park the other day, too) and he was beyond excited. The…

    HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS! TGIF, am I right? This week went by so fast (as usual). Nic and I were dog sitting his sister’s and her husband’s goldendoodle Mack, and we loved it. Being greeted by an excited pup running up to you when you get home everyday is a feeling that fills you with so much love. Dogs remind you of the simple joys like going on walks and just enjoying every single moment. I haven’t written a Friday Favorites post in a while, and that’s changing now! I’m planning on bringing this series back, featuring events of the week as well as fellow bloggers and blogs. Let’s get right into them! He…

  • Getting Ready To Race

    Happy Friday! Instead of the usual Friday Favorites, I wanted to focus on getting ready for my half marathon THIS SUNDAY. This Sunday? YES. This Sunday! I love that I have been able to share my training and journey with you all. So, this Sunday is race day! As you all know, I have been training for months. A few weeks ago when I ran 11.54 miles, my knees were in terrible pain the next day. I could hardly walk! So, I took a week and half break from running. Then, after I wrote Rainy Day Runs, my knee began to hurt again. I got really worried that something was wrong. So, I took…

Mimma’s Cafe Looking for delicious, authentic Italian food with a side of exceptional service (and amazing wine)? Your answer is Mimma’s Cafe in Milwaukee. This restaurant is located on Brady Street and is SO cozy. We actually had Mimma cooking when we went and the food was incredible. We were SO impressed. I am already excited to go back again! Sully I don’t go to the movies often, but Sully was a movie I REALLY wanted to see. Let me tell you, it was AMAZING. My…

    Happy (end of the day) Friday, everyone! Today was such a full day and I didn’t have time to write my weekly Friday Favorites blog in the morning. However, that is no excuse! I could not leave you all without my weekly blog. Here are my (late) Friday Favorites! 11.54 Ok, I have to brag because you all know how much I love running. You all also know how my training has been all over the place lately. As you read yesterday, I wanted to run 9 miles to train for my half marathon. Well, today I ended up running 11.54 miles. THAT’S RIGHT! I was so beyond proud of myself because…

    Happy Friday! What a week it has been. This busy week has been full of adventure and new settings, so let’s jump right in to my Friday Favorites! Simplicity (with the help of Menards) Remodeling and decorating the condo has given me many ideas about simple changes that make a huge difference. Our cabinets are white and they all seemed to blend together. Not only that, but they were also very difficult to open. So, my mom found black knobs at Menards that literally changed the whole look of the kitchen! I couldn’t believe how such a small change made the room look entirely different. Exploring This week, a favorite of…

    Hi everyone! It has been one hectic week, and it’s only getting busier! Packing, unpacking and moving is not an easy task but it is so exciting! I have a few Friday Favorites that I want to share with you today (and preview future favorites, too)! 1. Shakespeare Last night, we made time in our busy schedules to go see A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I love Shakespeare and this show was incredible! It was such a nice break from working and packing and it left me feeling refreshed. It’s SO important to take breaks in your busy schedule and relax. 2. CRAFTS Oh I have some fun things ahead for you…

    It’s Friday! Or should I say, Friyay! Every week seems to fly by and it’s already August! Where is the time going? My Friday Favorites are all about Pinterest today. Yep, Pinterest. More specifically, my Pinterest boards. Blogspiration One of my Pinterest boards that I am working on is Blogspiration. Here, I focus on tips for bloggers and writers. I have found so many articles that have been so helpful for me as a blogger! I came across All Things E on Pinterest, a fellow blogger. I found a list of tips (below) and saved it right away. It has given me so many tips and inspirational advice that have already been so helpful!…
