Catch-up Weekend

Baby Room - Plummage

I’m tempted to call the past two weeks “the lost weeks.” Between the storm damage and then getting the worst cold I’ve had in two years, it’s caused almost complete standstill life. State Farm ended up denying our appeals, so we’re paying for our roof damage out-of-pocket and switching companies. At this point I wish I could […]



Our new normal

7-7-14 Columbia Missouri storm

I started writing this post 24 hours after, but the mere fact that it’s now the weekend should tell you what kind of week it’s been. It’s been really tough. On Monday night/Tuesday morning, I woke up as Neil was dragging me down the hall toward the basement. The house was shaking and debris was […]



House project baby steps

Easy Quiche - Kohler Created

Huge working weekend for us last weekend preparing the house for baby, alternatively titled “stuff we should have done much sooner.” And while we didn’t get it all done, we definitely covered a lot of ground. After coaching my favorite 8 AM Free CrossFit class on Saturday morning and a breakfast of egg burritos, we […]



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 […]

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 […]
