MIMM

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 […]

chocolate cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting

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

I’ve tried some new and tried and true things lately and figured I’d share them with you! Western Bagels = awesome. That pretty much sums it up. They taste great, have great macros/calories and are a good size- similar to a Lender’s bagel in size, only denser The Perfect 10 bagels have 150-160 cals, 18-21g carbs and 19g protein… you can’t beat that! Ideal Fit Protein: I don’t drink a ton of protein shakes anymore, but decided to give this brand/flavor a try after seeing it on IG and hearing Amber rave about it so much. Let me just say… I […]

Western Bagels

HAPPY MONDAY!!! Not sure why I’m in such a good mood. Maybe it’s looking through my pictures and seeing all the pictures of Kara <3 There are SO MANY! OK- Onto the recap of last week… Give this girl a bag (or a cup or a water bottle or anything crinkly) and she’s set for a drive. I bought some Halo and when I opened it it was only a 1/2 to 2/3 full. I. was. pissed. I don’t mind paying for it (even thought it’s a wee bit expensive), but I DO mind if I don’t get a full product. […]

Kara's first beach trip

This is going to be an Instagram inspired post… so if you follow me there (and you should 😉 this may be redundant, #sorrynotsorry. #LikeABoss… When I run on the treadmill in the mornings, Kara and Todd stop in to say Hello. It absolutely makes my morning, especially when she walks in with that shirt and looks up at me like that. SO Glad Todd captured that moment. Had a pretty great run that morning, too #HisandHersDrinks… I haven’t had a full glass of wine (or any other alcoholic beverage) since BEFORE we started trying to have Kara, so were […]

Like A Boss

Gasparilla 2017

Kara got her first time out at Daycare last week! She pulled a kids hair in the morning and then did it again in the afternoon. Ana said “NO, Kara!” And Kara started crying. She doesn’t like the word no, haha. So Ana said, “OK, Kara, let’s go to timeout.” And she sat on a little bench. I think it’s hilarious that a one year old is in time out, but it’s never too early to set the ground rules, right? (Random picture of Kara and Nana this weekend :)) I’m taking a little time out from running right now. After […]
