• We’ve been eating a lot of comfort food the past several weeks (months?) The weather has been so cold, and when it’s so cold, I reach for the carbs. This next week is supposed to be nicer (warmer – maybe even 60s one day!) and we’re planning several days of salad. Our waistlines will thank… [Read More]

  • My friend Mendie is in town. We were originally going to have dinner last night, but when the forecast took a turn for the worst, I took the afternoon off and grabbed one of our extra passes (thanks to being a passholder, we had some extra passes that expire this weekend.) We decided to see… [Read More]

  • I’m going to count this as one of my #15in15. I got this idea from a friend, and she happened to have a Cricut that she cut her petals from. I did not have that, so I had to wing it. I wanted to create Valentines for my son’s daycare group, and I had to… [Read More]

  • I think I’m in denial about this being the end of the month. I mean…weren’t we just celebrating Christmas? How are we a few days from February? Oh well. I’m linking up for 10 Things to Smile About…because it’s been a pretty decent month. 1. We celebrated ringing in the new year at home. We… [Read More]

  • “Put your phone in your pocket, mommy. Put your phone in your pocket.” Those were the exact words my son said to me this weekend when I had pulled my phone out to take a photo of him. He thought I was getting sucked into one of the many apps on my phone, but really… [Read More]

Training Tuesday: Almost spring-like

training-tuesday-springtime

I’m two-ish months away from the Cincinnati half marathon. TWO months. Time is going to fly. This past week I really started to get back into the swing of working out. On Wednesday, I met with Faith for weights. I tried new exercises with her that left my arms shaking that afternoon and my hamstrings […]

Mommy & Me Monday v. 8

mommyandme_030215_4

I’m hoping I can do these a little more frequently this year. At least once a month. It snowed a good bit last week, so I was home more and my boy and I had the opportunity to take more pictures together. He’s a funny kid. He wanted to show off the snow in his […]

Snow day in Asheville NC #outaboutNC #snomg

snow022615_2

We finally had a decent snow. The temperatures also warmed up by the afternoon so the roads weren’t super treacherous and the snow began melting. It was the perfect mix of fun and practicality (we have to go back to work!) Our neighbors (and Lucas’ friend) called early to see if we were interested in […]

10 years of blogging! #10years #blogging #life

10years_blogging

Today marks TEN years since I started this blog. In 10 years, so many things have changed. I started seriously dating the guy who would eventually become my husband. I’ve run 5 marathons and 11 half marathons and so many other races. We bought a house. We adopted a cat. We have traveled to the […]

It hasn’t been the best month for me. (I’m looking at you, flu.) Regardless, it’s fun to focus on the happier moments of the month. (Oh, and I’m linking up – on time! – with emmymom!) 1. Lucas has been saying the best things this month. For instance, one Saturday morning he woke up, opened […]

Miscellany Monday: Oscar weekend edition

oscar-weekend

We’re coming off a super busy weekend. If the kiddo was sleeping, we were doing a lot of cleaning (it was much-needed.) After the craziness of the weather last week, our house took a hit. Our annual Oscars party was last night and we had our work cut out for us. Saturday morning, I took […]

Stream of Consciousness – week 34 #SOCWeekend #blogging #freewriting

We have no plans this weekend. This week has been such a mess getting over sickness and the freezing temperatures. Originally, I was going to spend this weekend re-acclimating myself after 8 days away.   <a href=http://lovejaime.com/tag/SOC title=LoveJaime.com><img src=http://lovejaime.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/SOCWeekend.jpg alt=Stream of Consciousness writing border=0 /></a> But the week was such a mess schedule-wise. I’m hoping […]
