4 Thoughts for Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Last year I apparently was not such a wreck and wrote a long post about all the things I'm thankful for. This year is another story, one where somehow groceries, picking my kids up early, and baking two pies has taken up the entire day and all my energy.  I am still going to Think Out Loud because it's Thursday and I have OCD.  Please don't take offense to that ...

WIAW – Food Blogger Problems


As I blog and blog and blog - and blog - I can't help but notice the blog has moved in the direction of "food blog."  Ya think?! Does anyone remember when I used to show you pictures of my kids? Drew with a shirt on his head having dance parties?  Don't worry, they're still here and he's still doing exactly that - right now actually.  No, I haven't kicked my family out and replaced them all with ...

Workout Recap and Weekend 11/16-11/22

Weekly Workout Recap Running & Yoga

There is a reason I picked the above photo today - I think I am in desperate need of some child pose action (non-action) - since I just had a meltdown over my waffle iron. To be fair, doesn't the waffle iron just look like it's trying to kill me?!  I think so.  It's also not the first time I've questioned the meaning of life while using my waffle iron.  These things can be darned tricky and ...

Being a Rebel, a Rockstar, and Obsessive Baking


Happy Thursday!  Did anyone else forget that next week is Thanksgiving?  Does anyone remember if we already discussed this on the blog this week? Apologies if we have - but seriously - this is the first year I'm slacking on Thanksgiving plans and energy.  Sure, all I do all day is cook and bake, but Thanksgiving snuck up and I don't quite feel "ready" yet.  Maybe it's because it hasn't been cold ...

Workout Recap Plus Thinking Ahead

Weekly Workout Recap

I realized about 5 minutes ago that I can no longer title these posts "Marathon Training Week XX" and then I was at a total loss for a title.  I never really think of running or yoga as a "workout" for some reason, but, that sounded better than "fitness recap" or anything else.  Maybe it's more like "running and yoga recap", but, too late. Plus, this way you can wonder for a few minutes if I took ... [ Read More ]
