About Me

IMG_0065Hi there! Welcome to my corner of the blog world! My name is Maggie, I am 23 years old and a speech-language pathologist (SLP). I have the best job in the world. I mean, I get paid to play with blocks, play-doh and bubbles!

I am also obsessed with fitness. I love trying all sorts of work-outs, but have a special affinity for crossfit and yoga.

I like to eat too! I try to make healthy choices, but am a firm believer in a balanced diet…that includes peanut butter, chocolate and wine!

I am native to upstate New York, but currently living in LA for work.  This is the view from my bedroom window. I constantly feel like I am on vacation.


In reality, I kind of am on vacation.  I love many things about the West Coast and my  adventures here, but it is very far from all the people I love. In June 2013, I will be moving back to upstate NY to be closer to my family and friends.IMG_0604


These little ones are two of my favorite people on the planet. Makennah Grace is my boyfriend’s sassy & adorable 5 year old. Corban Joseph is my crazy monster 3 year old godson. They make my world spin faster than I can run!

Family: This is the beautiful family I will be moving home to start my life with. I can’t wait to begin the next chapter of my life!




Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I LOVE to hear from you, my readers! Please send me questions, comments, suggestions, or anything else to maggie.abbate@gmail.com 🙂

    Hi there! I’m Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a fitness/diet app and website. I saw your blog yesterday and it captured my interest!

    I was wondering if we can do a giveaway for your blog readers?

    Our website basically turns people’s fitness/diet goals into a level up game with challenges such as quitting soda for a week. We’re looking for new challenge ideas, so was thinking of holding a contest where your readers leave a comment on a health challenge idea + sign up on our site

    We’ll pick our favorite challenge idea, use it on our site, and give the winner either a free digital health scale, slow cooker, or digital heart monitor. We’ve done many giveaways for bloggers in the past – you can google ‘SlimKicker giveaway’ to see. I also encourage you to sign up for our site to see what we’re about too

    Let me know if you’re interested! You can email me back at sue.zheng (at) slimkicker (dot) com.


  2. Hi Maggie I’m in Syracuse let me know when you get settled back into town we can have a blogger lunch 🙂
