Weekend Recap: Pizza and Baby Bedrooms

Thin and Crispy Pizza - Kohler Created

One last relaxing weekend before another race weekend. Neil requested pizza for our cheat meal this week, and somehow we ended up with enough for several meals. No matter, it was so good! I didn’t think about it till mid-bite about halfway through my personal pizza, but it’s been almost two months since I last […]

Sourdough Pizza Crust


Over the weekend we were forecasted to get a major winter snowstorm. They were talking 10+ inches of snow and super cold temperatures. The town was a frenzy of people trying to prepare to be trapped for days. But nothing happened. We got a little ice, it was indeed really cold, but nothing more than […]

Battle in the Bluffs

CrossFit Fringe Battle in the Bluffs

I’m off to Council Bluffs, IA (near Omaha) with Erica, Nate and Michelle to watch these awesome people compete this weekend in Battle in the Bluffs. Excited to be a spectator and to enjoy the calm before the big CrossFit Open storm hits. Life is so much different than last year! Since my brother lives in […]

CrossFit Fringe #OgarSTRONG Fundraiser


Hi guys — I know it’s already Wednesday, but I’m still coming down from the amazing fundraiser we held for Ogar over the weekend. We, with the help of the community, Ogar’s family, and our family over at Jeff City CrossFit raised over $7,000 to give to his recovery fund. That’s $2k more than our […]

2013 Heart of America Affiliate Team Competition


I started writing a post before Heart of America, only to completely scrap it because I sounded like an wordy, oversentimental sap. Now here I am on the other side of the competition struggling to find the right words to encompass just how crazy competing for the first time was. It was unlike anything I’ve […]

Weekend Happenings


It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these hasn’t it? Our weekends over the past few months have been so random that it’s hard to make posts about them — so more often than not I just let them pass by. This weekend however, things were pretty simple: we overhauled our website. We’ve […]

Weekly Workout Recap (10/14 – 10/20)


I haven’t done one of these in a while — apologies. I used to be amazing at documenting every minute detail of my workout but then work happened, and I felt lucky to even get the workout in let alone even try to pay attention to my time or weights. Whatever felt heavy and fast […]

Weekend Blues


This weekend went by far too quickly. There were so many things going on, and it felt like we had to go go go just to do a few of them. Weekends are so much different than they used to be. In my mid-twenties I used to sleep in and casually go with the flow […]

Life is Expensive


So, we definitely had an expensive weekend — some of it stuff we were excited to spend money on and some of it not so much. We had decided prior to this weekend that we were going to take advantage of the Labor Day sales and finally start the process of replacing our current washer […]



My weekend of unemployment was blissful. I joke, I’m employed obviously, but the small lull between jobs that was this weekend was amazing. Friday afternoon, I met up with Erica and we made our way to St. Louis for Keith Urban and the Light the Fuse Tour. Admittedly, I don’t follow country music all that […]
