Oh heyy… long time, huh?! I guess you can say I’m sort back, but I’m not sure what back means. I’m trying to figure out this space and see how I can better incorporate it into my life. Outside of Life’s Philosophie, things are busy. It’s that time of year where the weather gets colder, the holidays take over and before you know it it’s 2015. To say I’ve been busy is an understatement. I was in London for 4 days for a business trip, managed to do a tiny bit of site seeing, saw war horses and then before I knew it I was back in DC.
In the last 3 weeks or so I worked a ton, went to a beer festival with Zack (like the day after he got back from Afghanistan)…
Tomorrow I’m heading to Ohio for the week to celebrate Thanksgiving with the family. After Thanksgiving, we have a couple weeks to pack up our apartment and move before we head up to snowy Maine for Christmas. The next month is going to be exciting and fun, but, yet again, I’m not sure how much time and energy I’ll have to post…but…life comes first and well, you know where to find me.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and if I’m not back by December…Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and cheers to a great new year!
If you know me, you know I LOVE Indian food. Like I think I could live off of it for the rest of my life and be so, so happy. The curries, butter chicken, naan, aloo ghobi, palak paneer, tikka masala, rogan josh…. SO good. Last week Logan and I had the privilege of seeing THE King of Tandoor cook up some tasty Chicken Tikka Masala (in exchange for a blog review), which we ate and swooned over. Now I will forever sulk in the fact that my tikka masala will never be that good. Sigh. (more…)
OK guys, this is a major BRB announcement. Later today, I’m peacing out and heading HOME. Finally after almost two years, I’m hoping on the 24 hour flight and making my way back to my beautiful island in the sun: Singapore (more…)
What a race experience! I have heard so much about these “double” or “hat trick” races and have always wanted to try them out. So when I saw that my favorite race organizers, Pacers, was putting on their own double, I had to sign up. Plus I loved the fact that this as a Saturday race, since I prefer running on Saturdays and taking Sundays off. (more…)
As soon as I received my Seriously Delish cookbook, I knew I needed to try all the recipes. But it takes a while to cook so much food, and since it’s just me in the apartment right now I couldn’t possibly eat all the food myself! SO, I decided to host a potluck! A Seriously Delish-themed potluck. I knew a few friends with the cookbook and those that didn’t have the cookbook found recipes on the blog! (more…)
I have run many, many races and every time I am always amazed at all of the volunteers that come out and help make the race happen. I’ve been telling myself for months that I’m going to volunteer for a race, but I always want to run the darn things! Last week I got a text from Logan asking if I wanted to volunteer at the Zooma Dirty Damsel race in Rosaryville and then check out the park on our for a trail run. I couldn’t turn that offer down. Volunteering turned into quite the Saturday adventure! (more…)
Happy October and TGIF! TG freaking IF. This week has been pretty rough. Restless nights of sleep, early mornings in the office, and general stress made this week draggggg and I’m so happy it’s the weekend. T-minus 13 days until I am en route to my island home in the sun…Singapore…not that I’m counting or anything. Despite having a less than stellar week, there were some things that definitely picked me up a bit. (more…)
