5k number two of the year is now in the books. On Saturday I participated in the Hot Dash 5k in Minneapolis. The name of this race is a play on “Hot Dish” which is what Minnesotans call casserole. This race was a part of the 5k running series I signed up for with Jen. The next race in this series isn’t until July, but we’re
Remember about a month ago when I wrote about how self-care is not selfish? I have recently forgotten to take my own advice on that front. February was kind of up and down, especially having a two week long nasty cold. But after the cold was gone and my head was clear I was still so cranky and down and I couldn’t figure out why.
Another book down for the year, I feel like I’ve already read more than I read at all in 2016! My latest read is Lauren Graham’s Talking As Fast As I Can, which you can see I snagged at Target for 30% off. I am a huge fan of Lauren Graham. I already professed my love of Lorelai in my Gilmore Girls review, but I
Been a bit quiet on the blog this week, honestly I have some posts I’m working on and just haven’t had a chance to polish them up quite yet, so hopefully there’ll be more exciting fun content to read next week. For now I’m taking the easy road and linking up for Seven Quick Takes at This Ain’t the Lyceum again. This week I’ve decided
We had a good weekend so I’m going to talk about it, cause that’s what I do when I have a good weekend. Most exciting post? Maybe not, but that’s just too darn bad! Our weekend was our oyster, we had absolutely nothing planned and sometimes those are seriously the best kind of weekends. Friday we made dinner, played with Ollie, he went to bed
The season of Lent has arrived. I’ve never been super great at the “giving something up” thing. I have done shopping bans, I’ve tried to not swear, I tried to stop picking my fingers one year (it’s a very gross habit, we’ll talk about that another time), I gave up pop one year when I actually still used to drink it. But while these things
Whew, February passed by in a blur! I suppose it doesn’t help that I was sick for part of it and Ollie was sick for part of it and it’s just a short month to begin with! Anyway, it’s a new month and it’s time for Currently with Anne of In Residence and her guest host Carrie from A Stylish Fit! Here is the latest
I love Get Knit events. I’ve sung their praises before, but seriously, I love that they do all the work in putting together something fun and unique to do. On Friday, Nate and I attended their “Curling and Craft Beer” event. We’ve tried to go to this for the last couple of years that they’ve put it on, but it always sells out so fast.
It’s Friday! Time for another round of Seven Quick Takes with This Ain’t the Lyceum! This week I thought I’d feature a round of random facts about me to help you learn more about me – and just because it’s fun. (1) We have been living without a microwave for over a year. The door broke on our microwave and I really thought I wouldn’t
I just finished Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton. I hadn’t read her first book, Carry On Warrior – I do plan to at some point. I will admit, Love Warrior wasn’t high on my list to read. I am only somewhat familiar with Glennon’s work through her Momastery site. And Love Warrior is her memoir, so I just wasn’t sure if I should read
