Expressions Vinyl Harry Potter “Muggle” Iron on

GUYS! It’s Harry Potter’s birthday! Technically, it’s my birthday too – but PRIORITIES people! I’m a meer Muggle. Thus….this shirt. I died a little. The sparkle. The heathered shirt. If I could wear it everyday, I would.


Handsome can attest to this fact: the ENTIRE time I was making this shirt – I was BUSTING UP LAUGHING. I can’t really explain why….because I’m a nerd? Or maybe it’s because I’m speaking another made up language? Or wearing this shirt in public proudly? Whatever the reason, I think it’s hilarious. Or maybe I’m just hilarious. It’s sixes, really.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the boy who lived (and me – a Muggle). Hope all you other muggle and magical people have has a rad day too!

HFJ Sweepstakes image

Have you guys heard of the new Disney movie "The Hundred Foot Journey?" It's based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais and starring Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren. It'll be in theaters on August 8. What's it about? In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le … [Continue reading...]

SPARTAN Race – The Beast


If you've ever read my Bucket List (Which I'm SURE you haven't!) you'd notice that there are a LOT of races I'd like to run. One of them - a Spartan Race. Call me crazy, but I wanted to try it. Have you ever looked into entering a Spartan Race? Again.... probably not, because you're most likely SANE. The registration for these events is absolute EXTORTION. I couldn't justify it. Handsome would've killed me. Then, lo and behold - I'm at physical therapy (no good race story should start here!) and the tech working on my neck says he just registered for a Spartan race. I started griping about how it was SO expensive and I wanted to do and but couldn't spend all the money BLAH BLAH BLAH. … [Continue reading...]

My ALT experience (June SLC)


My experience at ALT in January was beyond phenomenal. So when I heard there was going to be another ALT in June I jumped at the chance to go again. Because who doesn't love meeting awesome people and partying non-stop? All the pictures below are gorgeous, and therefore not mine. Just saying. Full credit needs to be given to the very talented Justin Hackworth and Brooke Dennis for Alt Summit The ALT party started off just like that - a PARTY. I was with BING and The Alison Show and we ate at the Chow Food truck. Right when we walked in, the place was decked in AWESOME - literally. The word AWESOME was everywhere - paper cutouts, rings, signs, you name it! It was ... well, AWESOME! … [Continue reading...]

Tips to run a Marathon


Guys. I'm a little insane. Totally recognize it. It all started with RAGNAR. First I did the Wasatch Back. Then it was Vegas. Then it was a 10 mile run, followed by a half marathon, and then another half marathon. By this point, people were calling me a "runner." HUH? Everyone kept asking me, "When are you going to run a full?" and reassuring me, "You could totally do it." I'm not gonna lie, running a marathon wasn't even on my radar. Yes, it was on my bucket list, but never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd tackle the half marathon and marathon (AND SPARTAN! but that's a different story) within one year. Like I said, I'm crazy. But in some ways, it just MADE SENSE. I'd … [Continue reading...]
