Lately

Monday, February 25, 2013


I survived a very stressful/busy week, celebrated the one year anniversary of TEG, and had a wonderful weekend. Sharing my story on The Everygirl wasn't easy, but I am so, so glad I did it. Wouldn't change a thing.

Alaina and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a little soiree at West Elm in Lincoln Park. The turnout was both wonderful and a little surreal, too–so many readers came out to celebrate with us. I realize that most of them will likely never read this, but for the readers who do follow my blog, thank you! This is something I dreamed of for almost two years, so to celebrate being live for a year feels pretty incredible.

I wore this Kate Spade dress. Hair by Blow by Blow and makeup by Marla Del Angel.

I love my workouts, but the girls (and guys) I've met have become like family to me. I love these people. I was taking a few smilebooth photos with Alaina and looked over to see my CrossFit girls waiting to take photos with me. In that moment, I felt so lucky to have such a great group of friends.

On 2.22 Alaina and I took our birthday boys to lunch at Chicago Q. If you haven't been you must go.  A and I each ordered the ribs (delicious) and I think the bread & butter pickles may be one of the best things I've ever had. I am going to pick some up this week. You can even order online! 

I spent Friday night relaxing at home. I did absolutely nothing but relax and cuddle with Buddy. Much needed after this busy week and our one year anniversary party.

Took the birthday boy to dinner at Balena. The food was amazing (I even cheated on paleo and had a little pizza). He wore his birthday present!

We had a lazy Sunday and ended up grabbing a late lunch at DMK

...and now it's Monday. Time to get back to work. Have a great week!

  6. It was great to celebrate with you (and a gazillion of your readers) at West Elm! You should be so proud of the incredible impact you've made in a short time - all of your hard work has truly paid off.
