Embrace the Unexpected

April was quite… the whirlwind to say the least.

And even though ranting can be quite therapeutic, I’d rather brush it off. It’s time to embrace May and everything this month has in store.

The first weekend of May was sunny, adventurous, and unpredictable. Although things didn’t go as planned, and I spent the weekend in NY, I still had a blast.

The warm weather and oversized watermelon sitting on the kitchen counter inspired my husband and I to have our first cookout of the season! We grilled burgers, barbecue chicken, and veggie kabobs.



It was so heart warming to have our pup running around the backyard, country music playing, and a family dinner together full of healthy, delicious food.

After a big meal and a good night’s sleep, we were well energized for a mountain bike adventure the next day. We took the Jeep to one of our favorite spots in New York with the bikes ready to go.


As you can tell, we ran into some wildlife…



Not all of it was as cute as the turtle.


Luckily, my better half was there to rescue me from the man eating serpent.

Now as many of you know, I was excitedly registered to run the Dirty Girl Mud Run, which would mean I should’ve been in Scranton, PA this weekend (don’t remember my blog post about signing up… click HERE to refresh your memory).

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw me training, running, and counting down until what was suppose to be race day for the past couple of weeks.





Unfortunately, life happened, as it sometimes does, and I wasn’t able to be in Scranton.

Thankfully, the Dirty Girl Mud Run team was extremely understanding. They are letting me move my registration to a different location this season!! And I have to say, having the generous support of a race with such an incredible reputation only makes me THAT much more excited to run this dirty, muddy, obstacle-filled race 5K later in the season.


Be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for when my new location is finalized. I’ll be sure to fill you in on everything Dirty Girl related. 🙂

In the meantime… let the May shenanigans continue.
