My 2017 Cleveland Half Marathon training + experience

So, my plans to revive this ol’ blog may not have gone as planned. However, I used to share all sorts of running and fitness posts so I thought why not recap the Cleveland Half Marathon?

The journey to dust off my race shoes began when Team Fat Camp (aka my workout crew from Hyland) […]

RTA launches mobile app {+ a giveaway!}

How amazing is it to be in Cleveland right now? From being World Champs to all the new and exciting development, to the RNC, there is no doubt CLE is on fire. We’re looking so good, I think we may shake that awful moniker that has haunted us all for years.

Cleveland Home +Remodeling Expo: Giveaway!

It’s almost time for the third Cleveland Home +Remodeling Expo! I’m especially excited this year because of the show’s venue, The Cleveland Convention Center.

All About the Bag 2016: recap

Last week, my mom and I headed to the east side (a rarity!) for The Hunger Network’s All About the Bag fashion benefit. I had a great time running into friends old and new, catching up with fellow bloggers and checking out the fashion! It’s safe to say my mom also enjoyed the event…

All About the Bag Benefit {+ giveaway!}

Did you know 150,000 Clevelanders live in poverty? That’s a staggering number. As I sit here writing this blog, after eating 3 wholesome meals today (and every day for that matter), looking at my hubby and dog in the comfort of our heated home, it’s a reminder I tend to take these things for granted […]

Happy Thanksgiving week!

Happy Thanksgiving week, friends! This is one of my most beloved weeks of the year and I’m looking forward to spending it with Dean, our family (we’ll miss his parents who are luckily in Florida!) and friends. Hopefully we can sneak in a few glasses of wine with Dave and Julie, too 😉

#MyCLEPhoto: Be part of Hilton’s art installation!

Have you heard the Republican National Convention is coming to Cleveland in 2016? Well, if you haven’t, we can’t be friends 🙂 It’s impossible to ignore the excitement buzzing downtown as CLE preps for the massive event. One of the largest projects taking place right now is the new Hilton, slated to open in June […]

It’s almost time for the Taste of the Browns! There’s no secret this is my favorite charitable event of the year. And it involves two Cleveland organizations I love: The Cleveland Browns (duh) and The Cleveland Foodbank. My love for the Browns? I wear it on my shoulder. My respect for the Cleveland Foodbank? It’s […]

A whirlwind weekend, I won’t soon forget

This past weekend was one of those weekends that flies by in a flash, but so many forever memories were made. My family is my everything and this weekend was full of my friends that are a large part of my family. The pictures paint a better picture of that sentiment than I can with […]
