With an insane work schedule and workout plan, I heavily rely on shakes to make sure that I get in all of the nutrients I need when I don't have time for a full meal. I've spent years trying to change up my "bro-shake" game which means a lot of trial and error. Honestly, I had pretty much written off shakes until I discovered the glory that is Blender Bombs.Read More

Thankfully for me, Raleigh is a city who loves yoga and has tons of affordable options.Read More
Preface: If you ask me where my favorite place in the world is, I will either tell you the Dean Dome at UNC or the Grand Canyon.
In an effort to get back in the practice of updating this little ol thing more often, I went through my drafts and realized I never blogged about mine and Shelby's epic Grand Canyon hike last 4th of July.

Also, she has approx 15 degrees so she's basically a child genius.Read More
