Doesn't "urban hiking" sound way cooler than "walking?" I set out to just do an easy two miles down and back. My mission was to break in my new* hiking shoes, make sure my backpack didn't rub me in weird places requiring extra body glide next week, and practice with the GoPro I'm borrowing. Five … Continue reading Urban Hiking
I got really excited when I heard that Dinosaurs were coming to Town Center Virginia Beach! I put it on my calendar and was able to schedule a few meetings in the area so I would be able to check it out! From July 2-14 there are dinosaur displays all around the area and every … Continue reading Dinosaurs!!
I had to download this game a few days after it was released. I had a busy week at work on top of November Project's Hell Week bringing me 5:30am workouts every morning. I didn't need to add another distraction to my plate. I was definitely counting down until the weekend so I could check … Continue reading Wizards Unite!
I'm already a fan of Town Center Cold Pressed's cafe locations. It is one of my favorite "afternoon coffee shops," because they have so many non-coffee options! I was so excited to get the opportunity to host a Yelp Elite Event at their new Roastery and Brew Bar Concept. The staff at TCCPR is combining … Continue reading Town Center Cold Pressed Roastery Opens Today!

There was an … Continue reading A Colorful Afternoon in Downtown Norfolk
Last night I had the opportunity to attend a Yelp sponsored event at the Mariners' Museum! This is a spot that I didn't really know about until I started working for Yelp, but I have now visited three times just this year. It has always been worth he drive up to Newport News from Virginia … Continue reading Mariner’s International Wine Classic
I love playing around with my hair. Ever since getting a pixie cut when I was 24, I've been getting more and more fearless with my hair decisions. April 2019June 2019 I have been purple since early-April. It has been super fun, but I'm ready to move on and be a blonde again. I've wanted … Continue reading The hair of my dreams.
I hate going to Newport News, but only because I hate driving and once I am up there I don't want to leave! I feel guilty, because I didn't expect to be "wow-ed" by anything in Newport News. I expected Hampton to be the place on the Peninsula where I wanted to spend my time. … Continue reading Hanging out in Toyland- I mean Newport News
I've been living in Coastal Virginia since January 2012, but going to the big events in our area isn't something I really did. Either my ex wasn't feeling it, I wasn't feeling it, or he was away and I didn't want to go alone. Now that my situation has changed, I'm excited to experience all … Continue reading My first time at Harborfest
It is so weird not having any coworkers- okay- that is a lie. I have coworkers, they are just all over the United States. I easily could have signed up to run the ADP Corporate 5K as part of the charity team, but I decided to sit this one out. I hate evening runs when … Continue reading The largest outdoor office party in Hampton Roads!
