H54F: Moving Forward

H54F: Moving Forward

1. Photos from the Cedar Point Run & Ride 5k So I’m such a sucker for race photos. I love combing through the pages and pages of photos, trying to spot myself. I’ve never actually purchased them before, but I bought 3 shots from this 5k. It’s unfortunate that it was so bloody hot. As you can see, I was quite sweaty. Oh well. It is what it is. I really need to work on smiling for the cameras though. It’s…

Learn to Cook With My 5 Favorite Youtube Chefs

Learn to Cook With My 5 Favorite Youtube Chefs

As you guys probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of cooking shows. I used to get my fix from the Food Network and Cooking Channel, but lately I’ve noticed that they seem to be airing more and more reality shows. They never seem to air cooking shows at night and we don’t have a DVR to record things during the day. Therefore I’ve turned to my roku and youtube for help. It’s surprising to me just how many…

What I Read: May 2016

What I Read: May 2016

May was a bit of a slow month for me. I had a lot going on, so I didn’t get through as many books as I had hoped. However, I really loved those that I did read! 1. Justice for Sara by Erica Spindler When seventeen-year-old Katherine McCall awakened one morning to find her beloved sister, Sara, brutally murdered, her whole life changed in the blink of an eye. Kat was named the prime suspect and, on a string of…

Weekend Snapshots: Run & Ride 5K at Cedar Point

Weekend Snapshots: Run & Ride 5K at Cedar Point

I’ve got two words to describe this past weekend. Exciting and Exhausting. 4 of my friends and I drove down to Cedar Point for the Run & Ride 5k. We drove down friday night and then got up bright and early for the race. As you can see, we had a bit of fun with my new camera. You can control it with my phone, so we took some high tech selfies before bed. The 5k began at 7:45 Saturday morning…

Trolls, Yoopers & Fudgies: 24 Hours in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

Okay guys, get ready for the worlds longest post. Since we’re officially moving to D.C. in August, we’ve been trying to check off as many Michigan activities on our to-do list as possible. Ivan hadn’t been to the U.P. and I’ve only been a few times, so we knew it was a must. I left work early on friday and we made the 3 hour drive up to Mackinaw City for dinner. Mackinaw City is the northernmost city in the lower…

It’s Wine O’Clock: How to Successfully Pair Wine with Popcorn

It’s Wine O’Clock: How to Successfully Pair Wine with Popcorn

I’ve been in desperate need of a girls night lately. My friends and I always vow to get together at least once a month, but our busy schedules always get in the way. Last week I decided to finally put my foot down and schedule a girls night. I had recently come across SkinnyPop and heard they had an infographic for pairing wine with their popcorn, so I knew I had the recipe for a perfect girls night on my hands….

Memorial Day Weekend: Dog Parks, Bavaria & Mini Golf

Memorial Day Weekend: Dog Parks, Bavaria & Mini Golf

Even though we stayed in town for the holiday weekend, we were rather busy. Saturday morning we woke up early and took Kidd to Soldan’s Dog Park. It’s located in Lansing and is by far the best dog park in the area. We had to buy a key fob to gain access, but it was definitely worth it. It’s 15 acres and very well maintained. Plus, they have access to a private lake for swimming. Kidd attempted to learn how…
