Weekly Wrap

Well hello there friends! Took last week off for two reasons, the main one being because my work decided to block Google Photos… boooo… and I normally blog at work, haha. The other being that I was busy and just didn’t feel like it. I COULD have done it at home, but just wanted to spend time with Todd and Kara <3 (Warning: lots of Kara pics below. Scroll halfway down for the food, haha) Kara says, YAY mommy! She is just the best these days. So curious and happy. I mean, this is how she wakes up from a […]

Yay Kara

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 […]

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 Boston […]

Ya ya, while everyone else is showing pictures of their Christmas decorated house/tree I’m still talking about Thanksgiving over here… and of course running Last week was busy, but I loved every second of it. I worked Monday and Tuesday and was lucky enough to work from home Wednesday so I could get some stuff done around the house. I had two great 8 mile runs with Jolene (Wed- 7:54 pace/ Fri- 7:55 pace) and a decent mid week speed sesh on Thursday… This was actually a really tough run. I ended up doing the last 1.5 miles in .5 […]

Todd Kara Thanksgiving

HAPPY 6 YEAR ANNIVERSARY to Todd and I! I don’t know what I would do without him! He is such an amazing father, husband and friend. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him, his love and support. I’m super lucky to have him by my side for the rest of my life <3 Love you baby! Now here’s a quick rundown of my week before the start of a new one! It started with an exciting text from one of my best friends… her water broke and her baby boy was on the way- almost 4 weeks early! […]
