Best Travel Foods

My Personal Guide to Deliciousness Let’s talk about the best travel foods. I went into our epic road trip with a few select meals in mind. I knew that I wanted to celebrate my birthday with cannelloni at the Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC, and again in the Philadelphia area with the amazing chicken parmesan […] Read More

The Road Trip

Working From the Road For years I’ve said the same thing: “I can work from anywhere. Let’s take a road trip.” Except another year passes and here I sit, doing the same thing in the same place. I mean, let’s face it: my husband can’t just up and leave the office for a while, and he […] Read More

Being Busy

Staying Grounded When Things Get Crazy I really hate it when you ask someone how they’re doing and they reply, “busy.” We’re all busy. It’s not a competition. And yet… In the past couple of months I ran an election campaign and got elected to the board of directors. I finished a nine-course Coursera certification. […] Read More

Happy New Year!

No Resolutions Hi everyone! Happy new year! I know it’s been a while. Well, for you, anyway. As for me, I’ve composed dozens of very insightful, thought-provoking blog posts over the past few months. Unfortunately, they’ve only existed in my head, and somehow vanish into thin air any time I attempt to sit in front of […] Read More

Bourbon Street

5 Days in New Orleans Look! A post! From me! I’m trying really, really hard to get my shit together. Four months in a hotel can really mess with you. Let’s hope that I can pull it together and do a little better in the coming months. Last week, I got to stay in an entirely […] Read More

Hotel Living

Making the Most of the Hotel I guess you can tell by the title of this post that we’re still not back in the house. Yep, six weeks out from the fire and I still don’t have any estimate as to when we’ll actually be able to move back home. So for now, I’m trying to […] Read More


My Go-To Gear I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to write about one of my favorite products. Many of you have noticed that I’m always wearing a running dress my race photos and post-run selfies. (Ok, on my 6’1″ frame it looks more like a tunic, but still….) The dresses are made […] Read More

Race Recap: Stadtlauf Nürnberg

Stadtlauf Nürnberg: A Half Marathon in Bavaria Here it is: my belated race recap. Cut me some slack: two weeks on the road with limited wifi and a huge workload kind of puts a crimp in the blogging. As you may recall, just a few short weeks ago I was concerned that I wasn’t even […] Read More

“I Love My Kids, But…”

First let me apologize for being woefully behind on posting. This summer has kicked my butt, work-wise, and then the past three weekends involved a family getaway, a visit from my father and another trip to Seattle for the annual women’s fitness retreat that I attend each year. There’s been a distinct lack of time […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo The Weeks in Review

On the Move You may or may not have noticed that there was no recipe posted on Friday. You see, it’s because the only time I’ve sat down in the last week is a) on a plane, or b) in a car. There’s certainly been no time for cooking or access to a kitchen. Don’t […] Read More
