Kayaking the Buffalo River in Arkansas

Have you ever slept in the back of a Jeep? I have and I'll be the first to admit, it's not the most comfortable experience. But, I'd gladly crawl in the back of that Jeep again to spend the day kayaking the Buffalo River in Arkansas. As you can probably tell from my Instagram feed, my boyfriend and I like to do outdoorsy things. We've gone snowshoeing in Colorado, backpacked in Glacier National Park and this year, we're headed to Alaska. After hiking a couple of times in the Buffalo River … Read More>

RevelationsRx Giveaway

I knew the month of March was going to be a bear. In the past week I've spent time on the both coasts and road-tripped to several states in the Midwest. This weekend instead of driving to Bentonville and running in a half marathon, I'm going to relax with my family and do a little hiking closer to home. All the travel has taken its toll on my skin.

Based on the 1987 true story, McFarland, USA follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California, as they give their all to build a cross-country team … Read More>

Learn to Swim at 40

There are a lot of things that aren't cool. A fly in your glass of wine, not cool. When you dog leaves you a present in the basement, not cool. And when you're 40 years old and can't swim well enough to save your life, definitely not cool. According to my own definitions, I am not cool but that is ALL about to change because two weeks ago, I started taking swimming lessons. Let's just say the first night of lessons was a bit embarrassing. At the time my "adult" swim lessons started, about … Read More>
