@mrgoddard and I are doing our best to stay hydrated. #vegas #mandalaybay #citizens (at Citizens Kitchen & Bar)
Another peaceful weekend full of exciting things like laundry, dog baths and tv watching. Simone and I did get together on Saturday night for dinner and pina coladas in honor of all our girl friends who were on a boat in Mexico celebrating Amber’s bachelorette. It was almost the same thing, but now I’m ready for more pina coladas poolside in Vegas… ONE MORE DAY!
Running my puppy blow out bar here. These guys are as serious about their manes. Kind of like their mom! #yorkie #puppylove #puppypampering
HAPPY SATURDAY! Property Brothers + ice cream = a great start to my day. #hgtv #weekendlove #drumstick
Back in the kitchen today and trying something new! #bakerbitch #limes #kitchenaid #sweettreats #cupcakes
My FINAL treat from #BottegaLouie! Sprinkles are ALWAYS the right choice @landofgoddard. #treats #sprinkles #nomnom
Unless you’ve been living under a rock then you’ve probably heard of the happiest 5k on the planet - The Color Run. This awesome run/walk where you sprayed with a rainbow of colors and at the end you like like a piece of funfetti cake!
I’d always wanted to participate, but it was one of those things where I just really never pulled it together. When a representative of KIND snacks contacted me about participating on behalf of their brand it was exactly the incentive I needed. Someone was asking me to tweet and instagram? YES.
You can even see here how diligent I am - stopping in the middle to snap the most perfect Instagram photo.
My team had a really fun time, just as we always do! The funny thing was that I kept somehow missing the color. Each section we walked through I came out virtually clean, the people around me were getting doused and it seemed like no one wanted to spray me!
Even I’m shocked that I made it through this without hardly a touch of blue on me!
That clean white shirt didn’t last though, as soon as we rounded the corner to the finish line. People (myself included) were throwing their packets of color in the air, in my hair and just about everywhere else. It. Was. AWESOME!
Thank you so much to Kristi and KIND for the AWESOME experience at the Happiest 5k on the Planet! I can’t wait until next year.

I was barely home 72 hours and off I went again - this time to Monterey for the annual Dad & Daughters trip we take. We did things a little differently this year - my mom joined us at the lovely Borg’s Motel and my sister Kendall is out of the country in Portugal. We managed to squeeze some fun out of the cool temperatures and we even tried some new eateries - gasp! Now I’m back home for about 3 weeks before I head to Vegas, Dillon’s Beach and San Francisco. No rest for the wicked! ;)
Doing #Monterey differently this year. @themamalor came and we’re trying new places! (at Carmel Belle)
Hellooooooo #Monterey! I love what you’ve done with the weather. #cooltemps #happygirl (at Del Monte Beach)
Did you even notice I was gone? I guess if you follow me on Facebook then you knew I was in the lovely state of Vermont for that wedding I’d been mentioning. It was such a blast - I took a million and one photos, but these photo collages should give you a small idea about my trip away. A couple things I learned?
- Humidity is not my friend.
- I can travel anywhere there’s a Walmart or Target.
- We’re boat people.
I’ll share more photos from the wedding itself next week because you truly need to see it to believe it. It was picture perfect!
