EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler 2017

In my journey to get back to the fit mom I was in 2013-14, I set my goals to run again. It’s been about two years in the making, but I think I’m finally back as a distance runner (it only took two good, long races to make me feel that way). Today’s race was the EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler, a fall favorite here in Pittsburgh. keep reading

McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches

McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe

This summer, a new line has come to McDonald’s – the McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches. I got a chance to test out two of them – have you tried them yet?

The McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe line of sandwiches brings three amazing flavor combinations, all with fresh and tasty ingredients. It’s a build-your-own experience, starting from the recipe (Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ, or Maple Bacon Dijon) > adding the protein (100% beef, crispy chicken, or grilled chicken) > then picking your bun (artisan roll or sesame seed bun). You can also add a drink and fries to make it a meal. keep reading

Questburgh Escape Room

 This post, Questburgh Escape Room, is one such post. 

As a blogger, words come easy. But putting words to how much fun we had at Questburgh Escape Room here in Pittsburgh is never going to do our experience justice. When the owner, Gino, first reached out to me about this escape room, I was excited, but I had no idea the level of awesome we were about to encounter. keep reading

SnackMob

SnackMob

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Bolthouse Farms Kids™ and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

The four ‘lil Burghers are always snacking. Thankfully, I’m trying to show them how to make healthy snack choices when they must eat all the things right this minute. Since it’s back to school season, we’ll also be looking to reinforce healthy snacking habits by packing options that kids will love (like veggies, salsa, low-fat cheese sticks, or fruits). It’s like we are a real, live SnackMob! 😉 keep reading
