My son was sleep walking last night, and peed NEXT to the toilet. haha


Question for you:

Anything random going on in your life? or that you have found recently?

Runnin’ fool

Today was a rest day. After yesterdays 7.5 mile hilly run (where I almost died! haha), I decided today I would do intervals on the treadmill and complete the P90x core workout.

(remember when I said I was going to start P90x…in february. and again in march…haha)

Well…. last night I MAY have stayed up late watching the Cardinals win. So today I took a two hour nap, and my legs just weren’t feeling intervals. They were really tight. I thought “No big deal. Ill just do the P90x”. (ohhhh silly me) This video was hard! My legs hurt. Now how do my legs hurt when doing the core DVD?!!?!?!

Well this guy is crazy

haha jk. He kicks butt!

After stretching forever , I went to try and get a fuel belt

This is the one I want. I found one at sports authority for 20 bucks. Worth it?

I also, ordered my road ID! I ordered mine here: I got pink of course 😉

cant wait till it gets here!

(I got my road ID here! It was great and only cost me $15 because I had a groupon code to use. NICE!)

The saying I put on there: winners never lose.

Here are some fun ones I also found:

  • Run hard or walk home
  • you better read fast becouse i’m leaving you behind (this wouldn’t fit)
  • It hurts a lot less when you win
  • Everyone gets knocked down. Champions get back up
  • Running is a mental sport and we’re all insane.
  • In a world of give and take, give what it takes.
  • The faster you run, the quicker you get done.

Question for you:

Do you run (or workout) with a road ID or fuel belt?

What is your favorite running/workout motto?

Christmas List

Andrew and I had a convo tonight about Christmas (which I know. Is two months away) But this kid is so excited for christmas (I mean who wasn’t as a kid!)

Mommy. Do you know what you want for christmas

No Andrew. What do you want?”

I want a Lego Death Lego, a Lego Darth Mal..”

Andrew. Is there any no lego things you want from santa”


haha. At least he is simple.

Andrew on his first xmas 2009!!

A million directions

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling the blog.

I worked all day and then I felt that I was getting pulled in a million directions. I had a text asking if I could help out family, I had many phone calls about my parents dog and cat (that I am taking care of), and I have to train for this darn half marathon!

My parents are out of town this week, so I am the lucky on that gets to take care of their cat and dog. So the dog doesnt have to stay in his cage all day, I have to be at my parents A LOT. which means my house is completely ignored. (which stresses me out) I have a million things to do there.

So last night, I took the night off. I got a great nights sleep and got up at 830 and went on a 7.5 mile run!

before the run I had a PB and banana bread

The run wasn’t pretty. But I did it.

I then enjoyed a protein blueberry smoothie

Now Im watching Ghost Adventures (checking out my future husband haha)

Andrew is going to his dad’s for the afternoon, so I think Im going to take a nap. Then hit up Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also need to update you on match.com, but that will have to wait. Later!

Question for you:

If you had the whole afternoon to yourself, what would you do?

– I would take a bike ride, take a nap, and have a $1000 to spend at target haha, then have a pinic with andrew. Ending with ted drews!


I am now OFFICIALLY looking for a new camera. My mom took her’s, so no more pictures 😦

And it makes me sad not to take pictures everyday! (haha yes Im a dork. and I did a lot today!)


  • Sleep in
  • Call Ameren UE
  • Call Direct Tv and AT&T
  • Go to Trader Joes!!! (best part of my day)
  • Go to dentist to have papers sent to new dentist (I HATE my old dentist. And I had to pay 10 bucks for them to send them! jerks)
  • Got dressed up (no sweats) and did my hair
  • Laundry
  • Homemade pizza with andrew (used trader joes pizza dough- DELICIOUS!)
  • clean house 😦
  • Took Walk with Riley

SOO I took my parents CRAZY dog for a walk today.

Not only did this dog TRIP me on our walk, and make me completely wipe out! (thanks)

Then I went to pick up Andrew, and he growled at everyone! (and pissed off some guy!)

Finally, I bring him back to my parents and he throws up.

Needless to say. We are not friends right now

Question for you:

What camera do you suggest?

– I just want a point and shoot- less than $200

What pets do you have?

new goal and recipe!

The day started at 8:45.

Thats right. I got to sleep in!!!! WAHOO!!!

Andrew was at my parent’s, spending the night there with my nephew.

After a quick breakfast of yogurt, granola, and strawberries it was time to run.


yep. I hit the pavement all my own. Just me and the IPOD. NO garmin.

I didn’t want to always be looking to see how far I ran, or my speed.

I ended up finishing 3 miles and it felt pretty good.

It was shower time and time to get pretty. My goal, when I am not working, is to not wear sweats. I have to wear actual people clothes,  and wear my hair down too. (at least for most of the day haha)

So far so good.

Maybe I will start putting some fashion pictures up! haha

Then Andrew and I had some lunch and some “hang out” time, before his soccer game.

I had leftover pizza (thanks mom!) watermelon, and leftover potatoes (with LOTS of ketchup)

I had a really NASTY banana. So whats a girl to do….make banana bread!

Recipe tomorrow!

I also found some new decorations from my living room table at walmart.


With one set that I got at home goods

Didn’t like it. So I added some from walmart.

Im not sure what I think. I think it needs a candle, and less of these.

what do you think?

Then dinner was breakfast. Andrew had pancakes, and I had an omlet

and banana bread for dessert.

Then it was time to get down to business. I had a HUGE to do list to accomplish. And so I set up in the dining room.

dont mind the beer. that was motivation. haha

Question for you:

Where do you get your decoration ideas from? (do you like what I put on the table- or try something else?)

(ps. did you notice the new blog look- do you like? or like the old?)
