My Running Journey Mile by Mile :)

It was a busy weekend in the Winchell household! But let’s start with last week… Todd took the week off of work to get some stuff done around the house. We’ve lived in our house for over a year now and are slowly decorating. Todd did this navy shiplap wall and it turned out awesome! Now we have to decide whether or not to paint the speakers navy or keep them white… I received two awesome shipments during the week! I love me a Western Bagel. This was my first time trying the Begelettes and I’m a huge fan. 60 […]

Where to begin… if this isn’t the first post of mine you’ve read, you know that I have an amazing, beautiful, year and a half old daughter, Kara. I got pregnant with her through intrauterine insemination (IUI): a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization. You can read about my experience HERE. We got super lucky and got pregnant on the first cycle, but normally it can take up to 3 or 4 cycles. […]

Good Morning! Happy Belated Father’s Day to any dad’s who read the blog (I’m guessing it’s only Todd and my dad, haha). We celebrated with having everyone over, spending quality time together and eating! For dinner we had steak, baked potatoes and broccoli. And for dessert, of course we had a huge delicious cake. If you haven’t noticed, it’s our family’s tradition My dad and Todd both like chocolate cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting, so that’s what my mom made. It was delicious. I have to say, I am only lucky girl! I have the best dad in the […]

Western Bagel with Shmere

Hey hey! Last week was pretty boring and the weekend was super low key, so I’m going to combine some weekend fun with some Instagram fun! (@heatherrunsfast) Let’s get to it! We hit the pool up again. It’s been raining here every day, which means cold pool water. We went to a friends pool that’s heated and while it was still cooler, it was much more tolerable! I woke up with Kara Sunday morning and she kept pointing to the peanut butter. We get it fresh ground from Publix. So it’s just peanuts She’d stick the spoon in, take a […]

Pumpkin Ginger Snaps

Happy Monday!!! Last week seemed to fly by, but I’m sure that’s because of the long weekend. Here’s some highlights from my week Mini Avocados from TJ’s… Can you tell how small these are? They are the perfect size for Kara and I to share. Kara usually has avocado every night with her dinner. These are perfect because we finish one each night! No brown avo the next day! Kara has her fist boyfriend! Cole (seen most in my baby crafting posts) and Kara go to the same daycare and were born one day apart! Every day last week, Kara […]

First, and most importantly… Kara’s new thing is sitting in her rocking chair and reading to us. She loves books! We finally got to the pool! Kara was a little hesitant at first, since we haven’t been in a while (our neighborhood pool isn’t heated), but then had fun! Trying out the whole heart rate training thing with Heart Zones! I have the Blink 3.0 and it works like a charm. I’m excited to see my heart rate on different types of runs. This kid and her Western Bagels… every morning before her bottle she’s been eating about a third […]
