Ok, seriously. Is it bedtime yet? Man have I been tired so far this week! I feel like I’d be tempted to blame it on jetlag from traveling over the weekend, but does three hours really make that much of a difference? Instead, I think I’m better off blaming it on my late night softball […]

Alright, let’s start back where we left off with the IDEA World Fitness Convention! I crashed hard Thursday night, that’s for sure. On Friday morning, I got up fairly early, showered, and ordered room service because, well, why not? Let me tell you, if I could have oatmeal made like this for me on the […]

I am happy to report that my trip to the IDEA World Fitness Convention in Anaheim California, albeit a short one, was a success!

Lucas 12 months

Typically, I just post Lucas’s updates on the Baby Tooth page, but seeing as we’ve reached quite a milestone, I decided to post to it here. I never thought the day would come where I’d get to say that I’m the proud mama of a one year old. But, here we are, and my little […]

Two Dinner Ideas for Busy Nights

August 13, 2014

*********** Pretty sure I’ve mentioned this once or twice (or a thousand times) this past year, but it should be no secret…meals in this house have changed quite a bit. Since having Lucas, Jay and I have found that our desire and ability to spend a good amount of time on any given meal just […]

I seriously don’t think that the weather could have gotten any nicer this weekend. We spent as much time as humanly possible that we could outdoors, either in the pool, by the pool, or in the yard having picnic lunches. Saturday afternoon we spent a good part of our afternoon hanging out in the backyard […]

Fun Facts Friday {8/8}

August 8, 2014

1. I know I already posted this morning, but I like my Fun Facts Friday posts too much so I’m posting again. They’re my favorite because I can actually write the way I think (going off on a gazillion tangents) but, because they’re numbered, it’s okay. 2. Today my office is headed to Saratoga Race […]

Time really does fly. It’s sort of surreal, actually. I still can’t believe it’s been three months since my fabulous glamping trip to the Paws Up Resort in Montana with Skinny Cow. Seriously, if I could “glamp” like that all the time, I’d be doing it every single weekend. Especially if it included a well-stocked cabin […]
