weekend things + happy birthday, pilot

Hi friends! Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. 


(Loving the pumpkins at the Liberty Station Market. I run up to them joyfully in my Hunter boots, latte in hand. #basicfallobsessedpumpkinlover)

It was a fun and relaxing weekend, filled with delicious food, including this

(though I will say I think corn on pizza is a strange choice haha)

and chicken pho from OB Noodle House.


Workout-wise, it ended up being a pretty busy weekend. I subbed two barre classes and took an Orangetheory class. I was moving a liiiittle slowly after our late night on Saturday, but was so glad I went. Since I was sick with the weird cold-virus-thing last weekend, I hadn’t taken a class for two weeks. It felt so good to be back, and oddly amazing to run. The treadmill sections were short and intense -I dread the longer endurance days- and it was a great mix of moves.

Sweet potato salad + lunch salad trio

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? I have an awesome lunch or side dish recipe for you today. It’s a fun twist on potato salad (using sweet potatoes!) and has zero mayo. (Even though I LOVE mayo, I know some people aren’t on board.) Also, I’m sorry about the blog down time yesterday and for […]

around the weekend

Hi friends! How’s the day been? Hope you’re having a happy Monday! It RAINED here today. For my fellow San Diego friends, you know this is a huge deal. When we first moved here, I thought it *might* rain every day because of the marine layer. The morning would start off cloudy and foggy, and […]
