#tbt Travel Edition: Our Anniversary Weekend

Dave and I celebrated our anniversary back on November 8th. How crazy that we’ve been married a whole year already! Our wedding day is still one of the best days of my life!

Up and Running

Hi! I have some GREAT news!

Last Wednesday, I had my 6-week postpartum check-up and I got cleared to resume exercising! So you can bet your butt that when Dave got home after work, I went for a run while he had some quality daddy-daughter time!

Thanks to some special discounts, we got a Sole 63 treadmill from Dick’s Sporting Goods in December and Wednesday was my first time trying it out.

The verdict? I LOVE it. It rides smoothly, is quiet and is easy to operate. The only thing I need to get used to is that the front deck comes out farther than the display panel and since I run so close to the front of treadmills I kept tripping on it at first. Smooth, I know.

You can also save your runs on it and plug in your music so it comes out the speakers. I haven’t used that feature yet, but I look forward to it.



2016 Resolutions: Month of Balance

Lifestyle | January 18, 2016 | By

I am a cliché. I make new year’s resolutions every year. And almost every year I fail to keep them. Just like every year I say I’ll write for this blog on a regular basis…and every year I don’t. Because I am the worst.

But at least I’ve got goals. That counts for something, right?

We’ll say it does.

Anyway, this year I made a few whole-year resolutions:

  • Read 12 books.
  • Run 3 distance races. (13.1 or more)
  • Swear less. I am a mother now, after all.


I Want You to Meet Someone Special

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? The last thing I wrote about was my European adventure! I clearly have a lot of catching up to do, but for now I want to introduce you to someonevery special.

Meet my little baby girl, Riley!
