I just wanted to jump on here and tell you about our trip to Stowe, Vermont!  We stayed at the Lodge at Spruce Peak (formerly Stowe Mountain Lodge). It’s an amazing place, and we’ve actually vacationed at the lodge during the last three summers. The PR person there is wonderful, and we’ve been friends for a while now, so when she invited our family for another visit, of course, we said yes! With that here’s a…

Good morning! “Close enough” macros? I’ll tell ya all about it in a second! 🙂 We got back from Stowe yesterday afternoon – and, my gosh, we had a GREAT time!! The Lodge at Spruce Peak (formally Stowe Mountain Lodge) is truly one of our favorite places to visit. We look forward to this trip all year long, and I can’t wait to tell you guys all about it! I’m hoping to have a review…

A huge thank you to Stowe Mountain Lodge for hosting us during our stay. We had an absolutely amazing time, and we can’t recommend this resort enough as a family vacation destination!  Oh, boy, I don’t even know where to start with this recap. I almost made a video recap because I just have SO MUCH to say about our recent stay at Stowe Mountain Lodge, but, hopefully, I can share all of the awesome details in this…

Our trip to Stowe, Vermont was quite the weekend full of highs and lows. Our friends invited us, along with two other couples, to spend Friday and Saturday night at their condo at Top Notch Resort & Spa. (Remember when Mal and I stayed there back in 2010? It’s such a great place!) So, in total, were 9 of us – 8 adults and one almost 4 year old (Quinn), which made for an interesting…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Even though it’s only been 3 weeks at OPEX, I’m already starting to feel some positive changes in my body – like feeling both sides of my lower back touching the car seat when I’m driving and sore abs on my RIGHT side, which has probably never happened ever. My left side is always super tight and angry, so it was a nice change. Things are definitely happening, and I’m so…

And just like that vacation is over. How sad. 😕 But, looking back on the weekend, I’m very happy that Mal and I were able to get away and completely relax. It’s most definitely needed every once in awhile. Back in August, between BlogHer and the Healthy Living Summit, the folks at Topnotch Resort & Spa in Stowe, Vermont contacted me to ask if I wanted to visit their resort for a weekend. (Does a…

I love (running in) Vermont! Mal 1:07:36 Tina 1:22:35

After our run on Saturday morning, Mal and I quickly showered, dressed, and headed straight to brunch. We were famished! Luckily, The Gables Inn was serving breakfast just down the road. The Gables Inn was absolutely adorable! It had tons of Vermont country charm! 😀 Mal and I ate our breakfast on the front porch of the Inn. Guests also sat outside under the Inn’s signature yellow umbrellas. Mal loves Vermont… and breakfast! The menu…
