making… the best ever chocolate chip cookies. No Crisco and they still turn out fluffy and soft. Don’t over-cook them. They get eaten really fast!

practicing… Swimming! My swim lesson came to an end, but I’ve started going to lap swim at the local public pool. I have a goal to swim 25 miles by the end of summer… that is a lot.

watching… Orange Is the New Black on Netflix. We actually already finished the full series. It is funny and poignant and complicated and weird. All of the actresses are amazing, but I especially love Kate Mulgrew (previously known as Captain Janeway).

listening to… Emeli Sandé.

looking forward to… camping this weekend! And volunteering at the Lake Placid IronMan. My friends and I are manning a water table during the run portion of the event. I’m excited! (I had such a great experience volunteering at the NYC IronMan last year.)


Summer is half over and I am already mourning its passing. I’ve been packing this hot season too full of fun and fitness! What have you been enjoying?

  1. At first, I read your second item as “I have a goal to swim 25 LAPS by the end of the summer,” and I was underwhelmed. But 25 miles is impressive!

    I stopped by from the blog comment hop swap-bot page. I’m not your partner… just nosy. 🙂

  2. The chocolate chip cookie recipe reminds me a bit of how I modify the Tollhouse recipe. If you want more cake like cookies, roll the dough into little balls, and then freeze them before baking.

    I want to see Orange is the New Black, I just haven’t had time yet. Looks interesting. I’m so behind on shows it’s not even funny.

    Have you ever done the Ironman in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho? I used to live right on the route, and for 3 days, getting in and out of my community was a nightmare.

  3. I love this idea for a recurring post. It’s simple but still fun and interesting.

    Orange is the New Black is so good! I watched the entire series in a few days and then rewatched all of it a few days later with my boyfriend. The back stories of all the inmates are great. I can’t wait for season 2!

    Great blog! Thanks for sharing 🙂
