RWS Features #30


Happy weekend! We are at my parents this weekend because we have a wedding to go to tonight! My college friend Christy is getting hitched in NOLA and Bobby and I are going to go celebrate with the happy couple at their nuptials tonight. We also have a long run planned for tomorrow morning, as well as a 4th of July party at my cousin’s house! Stay tuned for lots of fun photos!


I heart the 4th of July!

I want to introduce you to Mellissa! She blogs at and you can also find her on Twitter at @fitnspicy. Mellissa started blogging as a way to document her trip to Italy, and then she got hooked. Oh, she also happens to be a dog lover!

QOTD: If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would you go?


  1. Fantastic post. On my way to follow Melissa… thanks for the share.

    And: Spain. Well, Spain or London. Either one would be so much fun to run around in… literally.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Melissa!

    I loooove to travel. Disney is always my number one locale, but If I could go anywhere maybe I’d like to visit Africa!

  3. I’m a fairly new blogger but I totally agree about the love and support from the community of bloggers. I may never meet everyone IRL but I feel like I’ve got a lot of friends out there. Off to connect with Melissa!

    Anywhere for vacation: Italy, Australia, Russia, Sweden…I want to go everywhere!
