    Musings: #GaneebanTris – Week 2

    …and fails! Not really fails, but damn humbled by the latest #TriTuesdayTraining for sure. But first, let’s get talking about post workout #1. Putting the bike in my car and getting it out is so damn annoying. Thankfully, J has been super helpful in doing this, even in the rain. Each time I have to put down the seats and remove the cover, then awkwardly scrape myself and my car, by trying to thrust the bike in there without getting it caught somewhere. Definitely a case of first world problems. Thankfully, I have a blog I can whine about these things. After the first training, I asked a few questions from…

    Musings: #GaneebanTris

    After years of professing my desire to do a triathlon… I’ve finally signed up for a training program. No actual race, but I’ve officially started training. My Midtown friend Sarah and I have spoken about this before and she happened to mention she recently received an email from a training program. She forwarded it to me, I read it and decided I’d try it. It fit my budget and the coach seemed very credible. I also ran the coach’s name by my friend Haley and she said she just met him at an event and that he had a great reputation in town. Also knowing that he is associated with…

    Musings: Iced Coffee Dilemma

    My bank account cannot keep up with my Summer induced ice coffee addiction! Seriously, ever since starting my new job that has a Starbucks relatively close, my bank account has been diminishing exponentially. Finally, I had to put a stop to it! An iced coffee + breakfast item was averaging at about $9/day AND that’s just for breakfast! What the hell?! Since disposable income isn’t really in my vocabulary these days, I needed to get smart about this painfully debt inducing habit. I of course went to FB to crowd-source my options and I came back with a bunch. Previously, I looked into various Cold Brews at various stores. I noticed…

    Coffee Date Me!

    When Starbucks inspires a post… …I hate to admit it, but its true! I was so enamored with their new breakfast wrap that I was going to write an entire post about it, but then decided to just have a coffee date with you instead. So as I drink my Venti Iced Soy Latte with an add shot (cause it was my rewards freebie and I have to make the most of it), I hope you enjoy your caffeinated beverage of choice. Well, lets get to it… Starbucks // Since my new job is very close to a drive-thru Sbux, I’ve been going there before work a lot. Iced coffee…

    Musings: Boycott Easter Candy

    Okay, I’m not Bummer Bunny or anything… …but I feel like every year all the kids in our families and L receive tons of candy for Easter. To change it up this year, I decided to gift something else. I’m sure I’m not the first person to do this, so I’m NOT claiming rights to my crafty idea, but I thought I’d share what I am giving to the Lovebugs this year. I decided that books were a great gift for the kidlets. Yes, they’d love candy way more than that. I want something better than five seconds of gratification — AND I know that others will gift candy, so…
