Hi there! I’m Courtney!  Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy it!

THE BASICS // I’m a 21-year-old college student.

LIFE GOALS // My dream job is to be a speech-language pathologist who works with infants and toddlers.  Until then, I’ll stick to babysitting and hoping that I finish my senior thesis project.

THE BLOG // I started this blog as a healthy living blog, but over the past few years it has evolved into more of a lifestyle blog full of tips about organizing, fashion, beauty, and crafts.

LOVES // I’m obsessed with iced coffee, Pinterest, downloading fonts, and wearing leggings as pants.  I have a dog named Daisy.  She’s the cutest dog ever (in my completely unbiased opinion 😉 ) and I post way too many pictures of her on this blog.  If you’re not a dog-lover, I’m sure Daisy will convert you into one!

  1. This is great! Keep it up girl. And amen to peanut butter and chocolate.

  2. So random, but two of my toes are stuck together too! Apparently it’s genetic…check your parents. 😛

    • Ahaha at least I’m not the only one 🙂 both my parents have regular toes, but I look nothing like them anyway so I guess it skips a generation! 😀 Thanks for commenting!

  4. Hey girl! I love your blog. I’m a year older, but we’re ridiculously similar. I’ve been healthy and active my whole life, and have run track and cross country. Last spring I even ran a marathon (and took first in my age group!) I’m studying to become an RD, so I figured I was in great health. But I totally thought wrong.
    In June I noticed I was feeling super fatigued on all my runs, but my breathing wasn’t labored at all. After cutting down my milage, getting more rest, and making sure my eating was “clean”, nothing changed. Finally, I started wearing my heart rate strap with my Garmin, and I discovered that my average heart rate was around 197 when I ran. No matter the distance or the pace.
    Fast forward to millions of tests/ekgs/chest x-rays/multiple doctors, I was diagnosed with organic tachycardia of unknown origin. I had to drop out of training for the Nike Women’s marathon, and I can’t remember the last “good run” I had.

    I’d love to talk to you more about how you deal with your heart problems mentally/physically. Email me!

    • Wow, we are ridiculously similar!! Creeeeeeepy… my heart rate hit near-200 bpm when I ran, too. Thank you so much for reading, and I have a feeling we will have a lot to talk about 🙂 Unfortunately wordpress doesn’t show me your email address, so you email me first [ runningfromtheheart@gmail.com ] and I will respond. =D

  5. Oh Titanic makes me emotional too!

  9. Thanks for coming by my blog…are you from Colorado? I just saw this random old post of your featuring a recipe from the cookbook, Creme de Colorado, so I was wondering. I have all of those Junior League of Denver cookbooks! I am born and raised in Denver and literally just moved to southern California last week!

    • No problem! 😀 And no, I’m not from CO and I’m not sure how my mom got that cookbook, but she was in Junior League here in IL so maybe they sent her one?

  10. I wish I could see this fancy google calendar. Also, I think every corporate office should let their employees wear yoga pants…everyday.

  11. I’m with ya on the “browsing J.Crew stuff I can’t afford.” Hear, hear!
