My First 5K

My First 5K

Previously, I wrote about “tripping my way towards becoming a runner“, when I was 4 weeks in to the Couch to 5K program. At that time I was only contemplating signing up and running a 5K. Well – done and done! I ran the Mother’s Day 5K and had a blast. Leading up to the … Continue reading

7 Things I Learned From My Mother

7 Things I Learned From My Mother

1. Always check the weather. My mother is the only person I know that actually watches the Weather Channel, but you can’t say she isn’t always prepared. She usually knows the weather here in Denver before I do. Obviously she doesn’t have an iPhone :). 2. Fitness should be a lifelong pursuit. My mother is one of the … Continue reading

Weekend Love

Weekend Love

Our little family o’ three had a lot of fun this weekend. We didn’t do anything incredibly out of the ordinary, but I actually got a few pics so I figured I would share. On Friday, I actually went out. WENT OUT. Besides the date I had with Hubby when my folks were in town, … Continue reading

Caribbean Cutie

Caribbean Cutie

About two weeks ago we jetted off like fancy people to the Caribbean to enjoy rum drinks, sunsets at the beach, lounging by the pool, sailing, snorkeling, and shopping. It was all very fabulous and glamorous – and it included a very handsome 6 month old hunk named Ace. When we told friends that we were going to the Virgin Islands … Continue reading

Wedded Bliss

Wedded Bliss

Last weekend was one of friends, family, and a whole lotta love. We made the four-hour journey back to ye olde hometown GJ for my best friend’s wedding. And what a wedding it was . . . We cruised in the same day as the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Thankfully my parents were extremely happy to be the designated babysitters for Ace. … Continue reading
