…once softball season arrives! Last night we had our first softball game of the season, and although it was a little breezy and chilly, it still felt great to be back on the field again. I hadn’t swung a bat or thrown a softball since August, so I’m feelin’ it a little bit this morning, […]


The Good, The Bad, & A Kitchen Update

by Courtney on November 28, 2010


Good News: Jay and I are back on the mend and almost feeling “normal” again today. Bad News: The stomach bug has run rampant amongst my family…now my brother, Mom, Dad, and grandma have it. Turns out, my one grandma was apparently sick with it during the week and must have still had it lingering […]

Happy Birthday Jay!

by Courtney on August 1, 2010


Happy Birthday to my #1 man!! The Birthday Boy wanted to be able to start off his day by sleeping in. Normally, since I can’t wake up early on my own, I’ll set an alarm to make sure I don’t sleep the day away. Well, without setting any alarm for today, we didn’t end up […]


Thank You!

by Courtney on June 9, 2010

He Was Safe!

by Courtney on June 3, 2010

Did anyone see the Detriot Tigers game last night?  I didn’t see it live, but once I woke up this morning and turned on the TV, I felt like that’s all I was hearing.  I did get a chance to see the replay, and WOW, that runner was definitely not safe!  He should have had […]

Sleepin' In

by Courtney on May 26, 2010

Happy Hump Day Everyone! So I had originally planned, when going to bed last night, that I was going to get up for a little treadmill session.  Well, once I woke up and realized it was still about 90 degrees in here, and was still feeling pretty sleepy, I decided to skip and take the […]
