Lately

Wednesday, December 05, 2012


I've had a crazy crazy week. Let's talk about it.

My friend Brandon was in town last weekend. We celebrated my friend Allison's birthday on Friday and went to brunch on Saturday.

Sat night–Untitled, Second City, and a drink at Old Town Pour House. Good times.

New Tory Burch Eddie Flats and New Kate Spade bag c/o KSNY. #lovelovelove

I did my first WOD with Rx weight on Monday and FIFTY pull-ups with the red band. You can see the red band in the photo above. Pre-paleo challenge I couldn't do one pull-up with a blue band (which is thicker than red). I went from struggling with blue and red, did blue for a few days, and then skipped right to red. It feels SO good. Goal–do an unassisted pull-up in 2012. Preferably by Christmas! It'll be my own little CrossFit Christmas miracle.

Buddy sat on my chair and I rewarded him with a new toy moose. He won't play with it but they look cute together.

Really enjoying all this holiday cheer. The tree. The lights. My flannel PJs. Tartan plaid. Prepping for my holiday party in a few weeks and a few parties next weekend. I need an ugly sweater.

Spent over 20 hours on The Everygirl's gift guide. Wrapping up a look book for a client, working on blogs and logos, and of course–The Everygirl. And I'd love to put together some gift guides for my blog. Anything you're dying to see?

  6. I think it's so great that you post your accomplishments with CrossFit on here! I am on my own work out journey, and it feels SO good to accomplish those mini-goals. Feeling STRONG and FIT is the best feeling! You go girl!

    1. Thank you! I obviously just post them for myself to keep track of everything and assume most people are sick of me talking about CrossFit–but it's my blog and I love it! Anyway, it's always really nice to receive some positive feedback!

      I'm glad you're accomplishing your goals too! Get it, girl!

  8. My dog Duck looks identical to Buddy! I showed my husband the photo of Buddy dressed up and he was convinced it was Duck...if he doesn't have a date for new years they'd be a cute pair ;) #toomuchcuteness
