Five on Friday


Linking up a little late, and in a couple of places today. 1. My boy got a haircut today and he sat in the chair by himself for the first time ever! There was very little fighting on his end and I’m so proud of him. This also allowed the hairdresser to cut it a [...]

Green Sprouts glass sip ‘n straw cup review + giveaway


Note: The following is a review in connection with i play. I did receive a cup for my son to try, but I haven’t been compensated for this review, and as usual, all opinions are my own. Our boy is still in the sippy cup phase. We’ve tried several cups and I thought I found [...]

training Tuesday – making progress


I’m making progress with training, though it had completely slipped my mind to post today (maybe because I’ve only been posting about running for days. Sorry about that. Also, sorry not sorry.) So I found my copy of Train Like a Mother and told my friend Suzanne that she needs to be sure I stay [...]

Views from my run: Downtown Indianapolis


I traveled two weeks ago and I love doing these posts (views from my run). I take a lot of photos when I run. That week I was in Indianapolis for a work conference, and I had 20 hours from the time I checked in at my hotel to when I had to register the [...]

Race report: Greenway Challenge 10k


Last Saturday, I ran the Greenway Challenge 10k in Black Mountain, NC. It’s about a 30 minute drive from my house, and I had convinced Bari (and her husband) that it would be fun, since they would be staying at our house over the weekend. The race starts and ends at Pisgah Brewing. My brother [...]

Save on Mabel’s Labels camp combo pack #sponsored

The season for summer camp preparation has begun! My son isn’t yet old enough for camps, but he still has a lot of stuff for daycare over the summer. By now you’re already scrambling to sign your kids up, and soon you’ll be sorting through the piles of sunscreen, swimsuits and sneakers. Make their lives [...]

Crazy sale at Crazy 8 #sponsored

I don’t know about you, but I have a child who is growing…so fast. Warmer weather is quickly approaching, but not as quickly as your kids grew out of last year’s clothes! It’s time to start stocking up on this season’s styles for spring. Luckily, Crazy 8 is offering 20% off markdowns so your kids [...]

Recharging my fitness goals (and a giveaway) #BlogForward

Blog Forward Badge 150x150

In January, I presented my fitness goals for the year. I’m pretty happy with how things have come, so far. I’ve tried the new Weight Watchers plan. (Week one was successful. Week two was kind of a wash.) I’m sticking to the traditional program of tracking (and not focusing on the Simple Start plan.) And [...]

Pick Your Plum: Garden stakes


Pick Your Plum has garden stakes today. I just purchased 9 for my garden (now if they’ll arrive SOON so I can plop them in the garden before I forget where everything is going!) For $2.99/garden stake, this is a great deal. They’re cute, helpful and metal. Hopefully the cute squirrels and bunnies that trample [...]

Training Tuesday – traveling edition


I have a few training/running posts this week. It just kind of happened that way (and one involves a giveaway, so you’ll want to check back!) Today, though, I have Training Tuesday! Finally – a full week of workouts! No excuses! Tuesday – I ran 3.5 miles in Indianapolis! A complete post with photos of [...]
