Month: January 2017

I apologize in advance for the uber randomness of this post… but I guess most of my posts have been pretty random lately, haha. Enjoy! It’s actually colder in Tampa this week! The overnight lows are in the mid 40’s and I’m loving the chance to dress Kara in some of the cute warmer clothes she has. Nana (my mom) got her the winky kitty sweater <3 It’s our routine to put shoes on in the morning on the first stair. She walks over to it and sits down, haha. Had this cup of cheesiness this week and it hit the spot. […]

What a beautiful morning! (Picture taken in my neighborhood 🙂 The most delicious, fudgey, rich, chocolate brownie. The. Best. Ever. Finally tried these- meh. Taste was OK, texture was pretty hard. Not sure if maybe this was old? Still loving all things Pumpkin Spice! I saw Sugar Runs post a photo on Instagram of Turmeric Oats and since I love oats so much, I decided to give it a try (with a few tweaks). I loved it! I stole Kara’s whole milk as the fat source, as that’s needed to help absorb the nutrients from the turmeric. I’m a NUUN Ambassador […]

…of Kara!!! As you know, Monday was Martin Luther King Day. A lot of companies had off, including Kara’s daycare, but ours (Todd and I work at the same place) did not. I am usually the one who ends up working from home or taking a vacation day to watch Kara, but this time Todd took off for a Daddy Daughter Day <3 I have to say, Kara is freaking AWESOME right now and I am totally loving this stage of her life. I was completely jealous of their extended weekend, which Todd knew, so he sent me pictures of […]

Disney Marathon Weekend Part 1!!! We left off with us JUST making it to our corrals… Literally 5 minutes later, Mickey counted us down, the fireworks went off and the race was under way. If you recall, the weather was cold for this FL girl (35 degrees) but the 15mph wind is what really sucked. Made the “feels like” temp in the 20’s! The wind scared Jolene and I so much. After the Shamrock Marathon (my PR- 3:13, which would have been under 3:10 without the wind) and Space Coast a few years ago (which, ironically is where I met Jolene for […]

Disney Marathon Weekend was just that… Saturday to Sunday. Wham Bam thank you ma’am! I picked Jolene up around 10:30 after we both got to spend time with our families before we left for the short weekend. We made the hour and 15 min drive to the ESPN Wide World of Sports in the cold, windy, rain to pick up our bibs. I had shirts made for us with our “mantras” for the race and instagram handles on the back. I think they came out pretty cute 🙂 We wore them Saturday and Sunday after the race, along with our […]

I got a blister under a blister on the bottom of my left foot… a week before the Disney Marathon. Seriously?! I usually run a few 1200’s 5 days before the race and I was worried about my open blister so I wore a blister pad covered with duck tape (I read several things that said duck tape will stay in place) and it worked great! Why not take the day off? Well, I wanted to test out running this way in case it didn’t heal enough. I wouldn’t want to go into the race trying this out, it not […]

  Happy New Year! I’ve got a bunch of randomness for you… We semi recreated Christmas last week, but it didn’t really go as planned… when does anything with a 1 year old, haha. Kara didn’t really want to sit and open gifts- obviously- but we got some cute one’s of her looking at the tree and holding ornaments. My dad got me this mug and my mom MADE the wreath for Christmas. I LOVE them both so much- both the gifts and the people 😉 I have a Like A Boss shirt, but it’s too small (it was in […]
