Wow, 2011.

I can confidently say I nailed this year! In so many ways, it could’ve nailed me. But I got the best of it. I’ve done these recaps on my blog for the last few years (2010, 2009, 2008), and this is by far the most fun year to answer the same questions. 1. What did …

Happy Holidays

I’m a sap, I love the holidays. The decorations, the music, the traditions, the family time, the food, the memories. But oddly, despite my enjoyment of Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’m not the kind of person that goes overboard on Christmas decorations, Black Friday shopping for the best deals, or spending a fortune on gifts for …

Somehow We Didn’t Kill Each Other

From the moment I picked Skyler up from preschool on Friday, we’ve been together for this entire long holiday weekend. We had no plans that required a babysitter, and really had very few plans at all, so we just went with it. I kind of dreaded it – the no plans and no babysitter for …

Something Much Bigger Than Myself

Have I mentioned I am really enjoying the group workout dynamic of CrossFit? Having that community of people, working toward the same goal, cheering and supporting each other through hard workouts; it’s a really nice benefit that I haven’t ever experienced in my previous solitary workouts.

Let’s Do This

My plans and resolutions for 2011: – Learn to do 15 consecutive pull-ups. I’d like to do that in the next 3 months. After that, make pull-ups a regular part of my workout routine. – Continue chipping away at my running pace. Take 1 – 2 minutes off my current best 5K race time. – …

Christmas 2010

It’s been a perfect week! I scored the full week leading up to Christmas off work, and I used it well! I painted and rearranged our bedroom, a project that’s been over a year in the making. I shopped, and shopped, and spent some quality girl time with my best friend, complete with matching BFF …

Life as We Know It

If you start a blog post out with “Not a lot of excitement in our household lately…” it’s probably not the best way to keep anyone who happens upon this post enticed to keep reading. So I won’t. But, I guess we’re in kind of status quo land lately. Ronnie is super busy at work …

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

We’re just wrapping up some of the best four days in a row that this family has had in awhile. Thanksgiving was a lovely day packed with two delicious meals and two fun family gatherings. We packed up Skyler and Bruno to head across town to Granny’s house in Belton. It was a full house, …

Winterizing

Holiday season is fast approaching, and we’re starting to gear up. First, I changed my blog theme. The old “springy” theme has lasted me almost two years, but I got tired of having to work with the set color scheme when designing headers, so I’ve chosen this neutral option. My current header is basic but …
