I have a feeling this will be a short post. Typing and yawning…I can barely keep my eyes open.

We had a ridiculously  busy evening. Once we finally got home and made dinner for the kids, it was already 8:30. Guess what today was? Oh yea…our running day!! Thankfully Marley was here, so we fixed them dinner and got them sat down to eat and Jeremy and I went for our run. We ARE dedicated people! I’m glad we went…I definitely didn’t want to miss todays run. It would have been real easy to say “Let’s just do it tomorrow…or the next day.” Who knows if we would have ever done it!!

I feel great and today I got on the scale…drum roll please…I LOST 1.5 pounds. That’s right…1.5!! It may not be much, but I’m doing it! I was so excited to see that 1 pound gone this morning. Great motivation to keep on going! Total goal I want to lose is 25 pounds. I feel like that’s very doable for me. I just want to feel comfortable in my clothes again. That’s not too much to ask!!

Here’s what we did tonight on our run!


I downloaded this app called RunKeeper. It tracks your miles, duration, calories, etc. It’s really cool! If you have the app, add me as your friend! We can be running buddies. 🙂

As I mentioned before…I’m exhausted. I am so glad tomorrow is Saturday! Although I have lots of things to wrap up for Die Cut Crazy…I can relax and work on my computer from home. Not to mention the best part…I get to sleep in tomorrow morning. Thank you Lord! I am so behind on my sleep!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Saturday folks!!

We had a marvelous day today. The kids went to White Water with their grandmas today. They had so much fun. I wish I could have captured their faces when I told them they were going! It was so cute. They’ve been wanting to go all summer. I’m glad they finally got to go and had a great time.

While the kids were swimming the adults had some adult time. What else would we do, but go play arcade games?!! Jeremy, Raechel, and I went to Dave & Busters. We’ve never been before. I have been begging for Jeremy to take me for years. I finally got my wish today!! We had a great lunch, some adult drinks, and lots of games.

I didn’t get any pictures. We were to busy having fun!

Sorry for the short post. I want to spend the last few hours with Raechel while she’s here. We’ve had a great time with her and will be sad to see her go back home tomorrow. So glad she came to stay with us.

See you tomorrow.

Hey everyone. We have a great friend staying with us this weekend. She arrived today and we’ve had a great time so far. Her name is Raechel…Hi Racheal!!…she has traveled from Arkansas, just to see us! I feel so special. 🙂

We have a barbecue to attend tomorrow, but no other big plans. We played skip-bo tonight with my granny (sounds super exciting right?!) and had fun. I’m looking forward to just hanging out and enjoying the time she’s here.

Tonight’s a short post. My apologies. Skip-bo wore me out. I’m ready for bed.

Thank God it’s FRIDAY!

Enjoy your weekend.

P.S. Today was our running day. It was easier today than any other day. My only regret was going at noon and it was so HOT!!! Great run though. We’ve officially made it through the first week of Couch to 5k! Yay!!

Today was such a beautiful day. It was the first day it actually felt like Spring. I know we still have 4 more days, but I am so ready!! It was nice letting the kids run around outside with NO jacket, Jeremy worked out in the yard, and we ran some errands. Sadly I will say I was stuck inside for most of the day…working on projects and cleaning house. I still enjoyed the sunshine through the windows and the peace and quiet. With spring coming up, that means a couple of things for us…one of those being guests. We live in a tourist town (which is amazing) and get lots of visitors spring through fall. This weekend…one of my best friends, her kids, and her fiancé. I am so excited to hang out with them tomorrow. The St. Paddys Day parade is at 2…can’t miss that!! The weather is supposed to be nice again and I’m sure the boys (my 2 and her 2) will love playing outside together. Next weekend my mom will be here and Easter weekend we are leaving to go on vacation. I am really looking forward to all the guests we will have in the next few months, but I also know we will be very busy.

I will take pictures tomorrow and try to get them up here for all of you to see. Sorry for the short post. It’s late…I have to get up early…I need some sleep.


Quick picture of my friend Morgan…who is in town for the weekend. We have lots of shopping and girl talk to do. 😉

Have a great weekend and I hope your weather is as nice as mine. 4 days until spring!!
