Getting the house decorations has been sooo exciting! Another item on my list, 1st communion clothes. I haven’t found a dress yet, but I have this for Andrew.


Now I just need to find a dress for me, and pants and a shirt for Andrew.


And last but not least. I ran AGAIN


I know this is not a big deal for some, but I ran on the treadmill and didn’t have any knee pain. And I did it because I WANTED TO, not because I HAD TO 🙂

Question for you:

Where should I look for a dress?

What is one of your favorites this week?

Blog favorites

Happy Wednesday everyone! My day consisted of the gym, grocery store, reading, nap, and Andrew's baseball game. 
SOOO that is boring, instead I wanted to share some of my favorite bloggers that I read each day :)


This is the first blog that I began reading, which lead me to start my own blog. (along with lots of emailing with Hollie that I “met” on sparkpeople.com)


Which brings me to Hollie’s blog! I love reading her blog for the humor! She also talks about running, swimming, and cross training. She is an AMAZINGLY fast runner!

Healthy Tipping Point

I started reading Caitlyn’s blog after carrotsncake. She talks about everything! workouts. eats. and she is now expecting a baby!

Life After Swimming

Nikki’s blog is amazing! Her positive attitude is contagious!

Chicken Scoop

Angela is such an inspiration! She just finished 2 months of the Insanity videos. We are also going to be running the FULL St Louis marathon together!

I read several blogs everyday that I love! I get workout tips, recipes, new books, and inspiration. Each blog and blogger is different, and I can't wait to find more and share them with you!

Question for you:

What is your favorite blog?

Do you have a blog?

 If so I want to start reading it!


Packing up

Well its about that time to get the tree taken down, and put away all the Christmas decorations. 😦

Each year Santa has given us a new ornament. It usually had something to do with a trip we took that year, or an interest we have. (my brothers got a lot of cars and tractors haha)

I found some of my favorite ornaments, and I wanted to show you guys!

My baby shoe ornament

My parents just bought Andrew a pair! haha

Andrew also has two ornaments he got in 2005. One from Santa

And one from my parents.

This is my all time favorite, because The Wizard of Oz is my #1 movie (even though she MAY look a bit creepy)


And then the third runner up, is this ornament that my mom also has

We also have two ornaments from Disney. This one is mine

And here is Andrew’s. His lights up!!!

Question for you:

Do you have a favorite ornament?

Are all your decorations packed up?
