Friday Favorites

Here are some favorites around HRF lately… Pool Time.  We’ve been loving spending time at the pool. Living in FL where almost everyone has a pool and spending time around the water (beach/lake) is a constant, we want Kara to be very familiar and feel comfortable in the water. So far so good. Rain Jacket. I got this bad boy on sale at Target for $12 from $40! Perfect for a light sprinkle run or a quick walk into the office. Afternoon thunderstorms are a daily thing here and I’m thinking this will come in handy! FOOD! Delicious eats having been going […]

Well HELLO there ladies and gentleman! It’s officially been over a month since I’ve last blogged. Geeze! I don’t really have a good excuse other than that I’ve been busy with Kara and work and moving. #lifehappens My mom actually asked if something was wrong with her blog subscription because she wasn’t receiving any of my posts… yaaaa, that’s because I didn’t write any, haha. We moved at the end of last month (only 15 minutes from where we used to live) and let me tell you, we are no where near close to being settled in. I wish I […]

Happy Friday Folks! I survived my first week back to work and am lucky enough to have worked from home two days this week- woo hoo! Magic Mugs. I bought a Groupon to make these fun mugs and gave one to my sister. They turn from a completely black mug to a picture when you add hot water. I put a collage of Kara’s Valentines Day pictures on mine. I loved getting a text from my sister of her mug- her, Kara and I at my baby shower turned baby debut when Kara was 3 days old. Tuesday, March 8. […]

Let’s take a look at some Favorites from my week Family Time. There’s nothing better than spending time with your family. Whether its for a meal or just to hang out, I love being with my family… even more so now that Kara is here. PS that stuffed bunny is the dogs, not Kara’s. The Weather. The weather in Tampa this week has been/is perfect! Looks like I’ll have perfect racing temps for the Gasparilla Half Marathon Sunday Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter. Warning. Don’t have an open jar of cookie butter in your car when you’re stuck in traffic… it’s not good for your […]

It’s Friday Favorite Time!

Here are some Friday Favorites for you! Super Bowl Food. We went to my parents for the Super Bowl and had some random, but yummy food. It was cold here and chili was the perfect dinner! We snacked on chips and salsa and guac before dinner and for dessert my mom made brownie bites with banana, pumpkin, almond butter, almond flour and chocolate chips along with chocolate meringues. She wanted to make sure everything was dairy free for Kara. What a great Nana! Grocery Shopping. I’ve always enjoyed grocery shopping- just not putting them away, haha. On the weekend, Todd […]

Warning: This is a wordy post without pictures, but has fun content! None the less it’s my Friday Favorite… After being cleared to run at my 6 week postpartum appointment, I have since run 6 times. All but one of those runs was on the treadmill. I got a BOB stroller at my shower and I finally got to run with it this week. The weather has been cold (lows in to 40’s with highs only in the 60’s- yes, I’m a true FL girl) and just perfect for running outside. I bundled Kara up and took her out for my first run […]

NYC Marathon

I can’t believe a month has already gone by. I’ve been a freakin mom for one month. Not to mention, my baby is one month old. It’s been one month of emotional craziness, pure joy, love and patience. Can I say “one month” any more times?! Let’s see how mom and baby are doing… Kara had her one month appointment and she did so well! She got her first shot and only screamed for about 10 seconds. She handled it like a champ! Her weight was really good, too, 8lbs 11oz. At birth, she was 6lbs 9oz and she dropped […]
