While I was running my 10 miles the other day, I actually started to tune in to the music. On most of my runs, I have music playing,  but I usually zone out and don’t even focus on what’s playing. I happened to start listening, and then basically started dancing my way through the miles, because of the music! I just love when music gets me going, and perhaps this was even better because I had turned my iPod on {Read More}

A homemade candy loaded cookie cake that has soft sugar cookie cake topped with a sweet frosting. The addition of candy and chocolate sauce makes you the favorite of any party. It should come as no surprise to you that cookies are my jam. I mean, not only my blog name has cookies in it, but I am never one to refuse a cookie (unless it has peanut butter, then no thank you!). There is nothing quite like having a {Read More}

Mizuno-Wave-Rider-18-Review.jpg

**The following post is sponsored by Mizuno through my partnership with Fit Fluential. As always, all thoughts are my own and I give you my honest opinion.** Running shoes are the most important accessory for your runs. Without the proper shoes, injuries are sure to occur. But have you ever walked into a running store? Gosh there are so many types of shoes to choose from! It’s always best to ask someone there for help, and get fitted for running shoes. {Read More}

Pumpkin-Dip.jpg

A delicious treat to take to your next gathering. This pumpkin dip is easy enough to whip together before, and delicious enough to have everyone coming back for more. Once upon a time, there was a girl who didn’t understand the pumpkin phase. Every year, people would count down to PSL (that’s pumpkin spiced lattes, in case you didn’t know like me until this year, ha. Glad we caught up) and break it out at the first sight of fall. Don’t worry, {Read More}

A few weeks ago, I shared a day in the life post of what I do while I am working. It includes pretty set meals, and I make sure to eat them.

Here’s a look at yesterday! 7:30: Rolled out of bed and decided that it wasn’t raining so I should go for my run. Had a Clif Shot Blok on my way {Read More}
