Month: December 2016

We’re just going to do this post photo style… Christmas Lights! Cookie Baking! Cookie Decorating! Present Unwrapping!   I was a bad mom and didn’t get any of Kara Christmas morning I’m actually REALLY bummed/sad about it and am “recreating” Christmas morning this week so I can get some decent pictures. #momfail I also sadly didn’t take any pictures of Christmas Eve Dinner, Christmas morning brunch OR dinner. #bloggerfail Family Christmas Pictures <3 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours!  I’m linking up with Erin for my weekend snapshot, Katie for MIMM and the Weekly Wrap! Have a great week my friends!

I had THE BEST marathon pace run on Wednesday. Thanks to summer like temps, getting super sick and work, I had to put off the pace run  I had planned for last Sunday until sometime this week. Thankfully, Jolene was able to help me out! She met me at my house and dropped of water bottles on the way. The temp was cooler than it had been all week (low of 60- woot woot!) but the humidity was still 85%, so I knew I needed water. We left bottles and gel on the back of her car, too. Jolene would run […]

Phew! SO GLAD last week is over! It all started Monday when I got a text from Ana (Kara’s daycare lady) saying she had a 100.7 fever. My mom was able to pick her up so we didn’t have to leave work early- Thanks, Mom! Kara seemed OK, but we kept her home Tuesday just in case. Thankfully, I was able to meet Jolene early to run before Todd left for work. Kara was fussy and clingy but other than that, she seemed fine. Jolene even brought over delicious mini muffins that Kara just loved! Tuesday night was ROUGH! We put […]

Kara Throw Up

Last week was all about my baby turning ONE! So this week, let’s start off with my other love… Running I had to move some of my runs around these past few weeks and that ended up with me having my last two long runs be 22 milers. Last Sunday I set out with my girlfriend Kristin (who I ran with for all of Towpath Marathon training) for an easy 22 miles. It was in the high 50’s/low 60’s for the run- so cold for us, haha. Since there was no workout/speed portion of the run I decided to use […]

Kara Phone

As every mother of a 1 year old says… I can’t believe my baby girl is ONE!!! Sometimes I still can’t believe we have a kid! If you’re new to the blog, I had a hard time getting pregnant and had to go through some infertility stuff. Baby Kara was born early, but a healthy girl! You can read about my natural delivery here: Part 1, Part 2. Like I said, I can’t believe that was a year ago! I could get all sappy about this past year, but I won’t. I must say, the past few months have been awesome. […]
