I’m always up for a challenge AND I have to remind myself that I am running a full marathon in six weeks.

I took the liberty and signed up for PILE ON THE MILES for the month of November.

Yep, I need to be piling on the miles and NOT the second helping of mashed potatoes. I don’t know about your family but to us, holidays usually consisted of hours and hours of eating and drinking. It’s a fat kid’s heaven.

My goal for the month of November is 157 miles. Yep, that’s a pretty random number. You ask how in the world did I come up with that random number? I basically took my training plan and added the weekly miles and BOOM got 157. Genius I know.

How do you keep yourself accountable?

Need some help for November, head over to RUN EAT REPEAT and sign up for the challenge. I double dog dare you.


You guessed it, It’s SO WHAT WEDNESDAY

I'm linking up with Shannon from Life after I dew


If I took H to daycare yesterday, just so I could spend the afternoon having lunch with friends. (READ: day drinking) Mamma needed a day to herself and it was glorious.


If I watched hours of Little People Big World last night, that show sucks me in every time. It makes me want to buy a farm. That place is awesome, pumpkin farm, small play town and now they’ve added a winery. I wonder if they are hiring.


If a random dog showed up at our house and WOULDN’T leave. I tried everything; at one point a random person brought the dog BACK to my house asking if it was my dog. So, I may or may not have lead the dog to a neighbor’s house that I’m sure is taking great care of that little mutt.


If I spent $20.00 bucks on an adorable onesie for my prego bestie. Why is it I never pay full price for my clothes, but when it comes to baby clothes I’ll pretty much sell a kidney.


If last week I was ready to ship my husband to mars and now this week I don’t want to spend a minute without him. Marriage is hard but it’s so worth it. He’s a great guy and he deserves a special place in heaven for dealing with my crazy ass.


If M talked me into watching the preview for The Conjuring last night and it TOTALLY gave me nightmares. I kept hearing clapping last night. I don’t do scary movies.

What are you saying SO WHAT to this week?

Pumpkin Patch

Every year we take H to the pumpkin patch. She loves it, I love it and it's cheap entertainment. We always go to Motleys. It's funny looking back. The first time we took H I spend days picking out her outfit. Cause you know it's all about the pictures you take at the pumpkin patch.
This was my favorite from the first year
Oh the cuteness, I know I'm a little bias but my word I loved me some one year old H.
Second year
Isn't it amazing how much they change in one year. Love my little sassy girl....
And then we have this year. They year where SHE decided what she's going to wear and how she's going to wear it. help me.
Here favorite part of the pumpkin patch, like always was the huge pile of hay/straw (like I know the difference) with the slide. I'd like to note that I didn't have to nonchalantly  give a kid the evil eye for pushing H this year.
we fed the farm animals again this year. H always thinks she likes doing this until she gets slobber on her hands or when the chicken scares her. The entire feeding the animals gross me out, especially when the Billy goats just decided to poop randomly. It reminds me of the candy Whoopers. I just don't get it? I digress
Mom got to go with us this year, we just love having her here, I know she'll be headed to STL soon. We are going to miss her.

My delimma

I love me some Tuesdays (mainly because it's my 3rd day off). I take that back. I love me some productive Tuesdays. I'm all for lazy a lot but last week I challenged myself with my diet and my runs. I'm happy to say, this little challenge is still going.

My runs last week weren't were I wanted them to be, only because this girl got the flu shot and shocker got sick. I know I got sick because of nasty daycare germs but it makes me feel better to blame it on the flu shot. I ran, but not everyday. I actually still have to stop running to blow my nose. It's really attractive.

My eating has been clean for the most part. I'm doing well with the carbs, sweets and booze. So you'd think the scale would reflect all of my hard work.

um, negative ghost rider.

I gained a pound! WTF You better believe the scale got the finger this morning. I blame it on the cough medicine. I'm sure that shit is loaded with calories. (ha, or the beers I had watching the cardinals loose)

So with that being said. M and I are starting the 10 day Adovcare Cleanse. I've heard great things about it, and we could BOTH use a little cleansing up in here!

I digress.

I'm happy to say, it's not even 8am and I've gotten my run in. I am a morning person to the max. staying up past 10pm is for the birds.

Here is my dilemma. I would love to get all of my running in before I go to work. It makes me eat better, I feel better and when I get home I can spend time with my DVR H & M.  My dilemma? I have to be at work by 6am. which means I leave my house at 5:15am, which thank GESUS I wear scrub so I get up at 4:30am. The problem, most of my runs are more than 3 miles. Which means I'd have to get up at 3:30. That means 5.5 hours of sleep for me.  Have you seen this girl with less than 6 hours of sleep? It aint pretty.

What's a girl to do?

I haven't tried the 3:30 wake up call,,  I just don't know how I could physically run at 3:30am
without hurting myself. On the flip side getting home at 5pm cooking dinner, dealing with H and THEN running blows too. I need a plan ASAP.

What about you? Do prefer to work out in the morning or evening?

Friday, October 25, 2013


Happy Friday everyone! I wish I could say I jumped right out of bed this morning and got my running in but that would be a big fat Pinocchio lie. I still feel like death. Thank you baby Jesus for Friday.

Here’s my five on Friday


I think I need a Arkansas intervention. I’m actually considering buying these.

Yep camouflage Toms. I think they are adorable. I just keep thinking “what will people say when I wear them in STL” I think it will go something like this:
Dad: I know you aren’t wearing camouflage shoes. Do you even know why people wear camouflage amie?

Mom: Oh are those “tommy shoes” don’t the give little girls a wish or something?

Sister: I’m going to need you to take those off when you’re around me.

Do you see what I’m dealing with?



How stressful was last night’s game? Gesh. M was out of control.

Guess who gets to go to the WORLD SERIES GAME this Saturday!!

NOPE not this girl.

My HUSBAND. He is the luckiest person I know. I swear it’s all about who you know. Did I mention he’ll be in a suite, with unlimited booze and delicious nachos?

So not fair, right? I want to know where my ticket is.

In all honesty I’m super excited for him. He is a diehard fan, and going to a world series game is on his bucket list. Plus he gets to have a weekend home with his friends. Yes, you can go ahead and call me wife of the year.


While M is three sheets to the wind cheering for the cardinals, I have planned a fun filled weekend for H and I. Tonight we are heading to a carnival that our church is holding. It’s like a smaller version of the fair, well a much smaller version. There are rides and all sorts of fried foods. Tomorrow, we will be heading to the pumpkin patch. It’s a tradition. I’m pretty sure I have more fun than H. I just love getting all the pumpkin pictures.


My sassy three year old is growing too fast. How do I make her stop. This weekend throwing all things aside and just spending time with my girl. I’ll blink and she’ll be off to college. (I know a little dramatic)


I’m obsessed with this outfit. I need to recreate this outfit asap. And then find somewhere to wear it

Have a great weekend everyone! Head over and link up for your FIVE ON FRIDAY

Thursday Thoughts

This week, I challenged myself to a few things. While my sailor mouth isn’t quite Mother Theresa I am catching myself before the four letter word(s) slip. That’s a plus.

My diet isn’t completely clean but it isn’t completely dirty either. I’m doing well with the no carbs; however I do treat myself to one “sweet treat” a day. Yes, a day.

The drinking? I’ve had a drink every. While it’s in moderation I just need it for my sanity.

Raise your hand if you’ve gotten the flu shot then gotten sick? If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, I’m not a believer in the flu shot. Disclaimer: H did have a little daycare “funk cold medina” going on, so I’m sure I caught what she had but still…

My nose won't stop running. My poor co-workers. When I blow my nose, it sounds like a freaking Elephant mating call.

I need to invest in one of these.

My sweet husband’s bday was Sunday, we spend the weekend in Dallas acting like he was turning 21. Ugh, we paid for it Sunday. We delayed his birthday celebration until later this week. We made his favorite dinner. Taco’s (Mamma goes big for her man) and made his favorite pie, Pecan Pie. I was a little nervous since it was my first attempt. I went to get a piece last night and it was GONE, I guess he liked it.

H is having a Halloween party next week at school. I’m super excited. Everyone is assigned to bring a dish. Since I just saw the sign up sheet yesterday, the only thing that was left was “Dip” ugh…Dip? What kind of dip do kids eat? HELP. I’ve seen this but I’m worried the “Pinterest mom’s” will give me the side eye roll.

Any suggestions?

Eckert's Country Farm

Our last trip to St. Louis, we took advantage of the beautiful fall weather and went to Eckerts. I highly recommend it if you’re ever in the STL area.

Eckert’s, when I was a child was just an old time restaurant that had a janky wagon that took you on a 2 minute ride to the apple trees.

Now, it’s so much more. There’s still the old people restaurant and the apple picking, but they have added pumpkin picking, hay rides, bonfires, petting zoo, a country store, and let’s not forget the kiddie carnival.

Hannah was in country heaven.

I was a little concern about the rides. I thought H be a little hesitant once she saw what the rides did. Boy was I wrong!

At one point I looked up and H was swinging in this thing yelling weeeeeeeee!

Then she got to ride "Pumpkin" the horsey.

Of course we had to go pick apples and pumpkins. I think H really enjoyed picking the apples the best. She's pick an apple and say "look mamma, this is good. Then take a bite out of it. ugh, we had a bag full of apples with one bite out of them.

We were spent after riding rides and apple picking. So we sat and ate fair food and listen to an old man play the banjo. (for real) My sister kept giving me the side eye roll. I'm country...she is all city girl. We laughed, when we saw H getting down to the banjo music. She can't help it, country runs through her veins.

Weekly Goals


We had a great weekend in Dallas. It was nice to get away with M. I learned a lot this weekend about myself. I share that later in a different post. This week I’m hitting life hard and making some changes. My sailor mouth, eating and fitness have gotten a little off track. I don’t know about you but starting Monday with a list always gets me off to a good start.

Nutritional Goals for the week –

1. Log my meals. Somehow I’m thinking this will keep me accountable.
2. Stick with the no carbs and no sugar. Eat as “Clean” as possible. (Help me)
3. No booze during the week. Ok ok… let’s not get crazy. Limit the booze during the week.

Fitness Goals for the week -

Stick to the St. Jude’s marathon training this week.
Monday- 4 miles
Tuesday- CT or 3 miles
Wednesday- 4 miles
Thursday- CT or Rest
Friday- 4-6 miles
Saturday – Rest
Sunday 14-16 miles
This will be the first time I’ve ran anything over 13.1 I’m thinking if I keep things slow and steady I should be fine. Let’s be honest. I’m not looking to PR or anything; I’m just looking for completion.

Kindness Goals for the week-
I really want to focus on Luke 6:31
“Do to others as you would have them do to you”
This verse can be so hard to do sometimes. I can be a little hard headed sometimes. I know shocking. When I get a bur in my saddle I get mad and then I stay mad. Not a good quality I know. It’s something I am working on. I need to be nice to others, turn the cheek when I’ve been done wrong. Treat others like I want to be treated. So with this, I am doing one act of kindness a day.

I know these goals don’t seem huge but they are huge to me. Here’s to a successful week.

What are your goals for the week?

Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Guess what I’m doing tonight... You got it! Go Cards!

Tomorrow I’m getting up bright and early for my group run. I have to admit I’m looking forward to it. There’s nothing like a good morning run. Then M and I are headed to Dallas for a friend’s wedding/M’s birthday weekend. I’m a little excited. I love Dallas.

This morning I get a call from M. He’s in the car headed to drop H off. He loathes getting H ready in the morning. (I can’t say I blame him) girlfriend is not a morning person. M is freaking out because H is freaking out. Something has to give. I need super nanny asap. How do we make our mornings better? Does anyone else struggle with getting their 3 year old dressed and out the door in the mornings? I don’t have time to read a book so I googled is it totally ok to drink wine before 6am because your three year old won’t get dressed? How to get your 3yr old dressed and out the door.

The verdict:
1. Set a timer: Make it a game. If she can get dressed before the timer goes off she gets a prize.

2. Tell them they cannot get out of bed until they get dressed. Not sure how this will work. H would just piss in the bed or even better she’ll just stay in bed and go back to sleep.

3. Bribe your child with candy. (DING DING DING) I’m kidding

4. Tell your husband to grow a pair and get the child dress and take them to school. Who care if she’s screaming, we pay them to make her stop crying. I’m kidding again.

If you read this blog you know I love me some wine. Like a lot. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon this. Instantly I picked one up for Marcia (perfect birthday gift) and one for me. Have you seen these? Have you tried it? They work.


I hardly have time to watch real T.V. BUT I came across The People’s Couch on Bravo.
The PEOPLE’s Couch features real people watching and commenting on popular shows and news from the past week. You have to check it out. I know the concept is a little weird. “Watching people watch tv” it’s HYSTERICAL. Sunday at 10pm

Has anyone else heard Royals by Lorde? My obsession this week!

Have a great weekend! Don’t forget to run!

GO STL Recap

Last Sunday I ran the Go STL half marathon. This was my sixth half Mary. To say I was excited to run in STL is an understatement. STL is home and it always will be. This girl was was going to be there BONUS.

Let me just reflect on her for a moment. She totally wins the friendship award. Why? Well home girl has been working her tail off to get back into running after an injury. She has kicked her old lady boot to the curb and lace up her running shoes. She did awesome and I am so proud of her. Most people would have just thrown their running shoes to the curb and just signed up for the 1k fun run. Not this girl!

Like and other weekend in STL, I always manage to jam pack every moment seeing friends. The Friday before I literally was in STL for an hour before I had a beer in my hand and had my happy ass at the cardinals game (more on that later) Saturday, I spend the day at Eckert’s (more on the later too) I knew If I didn’t go home before 6pm I would have my happy butt bar hopping with friends. Running hung over is something I just never want to do. So I put my sober self to bed at 9:30pm. Jealous much…wait until you hear my super awesome sister hosted a sleep over for H and a friends so THIS girl got to sleep 8 hours kid free. Glorious

My alarm went off at 5am: I bounced up like a spring chicken. I got dressed and ate a bowl of spaghetti?! Yes, you read that right. I woke up starving. I normally grab a cliff bar and wash it down with water but not this morning.

The plan was for Marcia to pick me up by 6am. It was so weird getting ready for a race without her. She there to keep me on track. Read: ask me a million questions: Did you eat your banana? Did you drink water? Double tie your shoes? Do you have your iPod? You get my drift. She’s a walking reminder and I love it.

I was ready in no time. So I peed 43 times and stretched until my chariot arrived.

We headed down town chatting. Angie was with us, she’s the bride to be. I was so excited to see her one last time before her race. I digress.

Marcia finds us a parking spot, but not without taking out a sign. Yes. bless its!

We found a potty (race day = pea size bladder) and headed to the start line. Since Marcia was still recovering from her injury she was running the 5k. They started 30 minutes before the half marathon runners.

30 minutes to kill. Stretch, use the bathroom again. Head to the start line.

7:30 and we are off.

Mile 1: run up hill. Really? Whose idea was this?

Mile 2: running in direct sunlight through downtown STL. I couldn’t see a thing, except the person in front of me. Terrible

Mile 3: still running in darkness. Thankfully the weather is perfect. Pace is good.

Mile 4- 5: wow, this is going pretty good.

Mile 6: stop gets water/Gatorade and a gel. Pick up the pace. Feeling great.

Mile 7-8. I was in a running coma. No thinking just running.

Mile 9 and I’m bored. I start thinking of random things, like my dog, my hair; wish I had a piece of gum. I start people watching. I see this girl running in front of me. I think “dang, how does she still look cute? Her hair looks amazing, like she’s in a commercial for Brandy Bands” I need to get a better look. So I speed up just a bit and I instantly recognize her. It’s Mel from 4KOTTEZ. I get nervous, like I just saw Kate Middleton or something. I think I have to say Hi. Marcia and her have met, that automatically cancels the freak card. You know what I’m talking about. Those awkward conversations of you don’t know me but I stalk your blog every day. I think your hilarious can we be friends?

I put my big girl panties on and said hello (I’m sure there was some heavy breathing, this girl can’t run and hold a conversation) Mel was so sweet if you don’t follow her go check her out. Her blog is a cornucopia of sweetish fish, running, and photos of her adorable kids.

Mile 10: I was still running on the high of meeting Mel. Feeling great. I the 2:05 pacers just pass me. I had no idea I was that close.

Mile 11: just keep running

Mile 12: Hit the wall. I wanted to cry, wanted to walk. I look up and see a hill. Like a HUGE hill. Shoot me now. Then I see this little ray of sunshine. Also known as Marcia. She’s up there cheering me on. I was full blown baby I want to quit mode at this time. If it wasn’t for Marcia I would have walked. I kept going.

Mile 13: I see the finish line, I hear the people cheering. I see my dad! I see my mom! I see my aunt! I cross the finish line!!

Time 2:15. Eh, not my best but not my worse.

I had a fantastic time in STL with these girls!

Life After I Dew

Today I'm saying SO WHAT.....

If I just spent twenty minutes online at Shutter Fly. I can’t pass up the FREE CODES. FREE 16x20 until October 17th, use code FB16x20. All you pay is shipping! BOOM. Christmas present for daddy. You’re welcome

If M’s birthday is Sunday and I haven’t planned anything

If I’m using the excuses that H NEEDS to experience the fair. I want to go and people watch and eat fried Oreo’s. (Those aren’t carbs right?)

If I order Monster Inc on demand instead of taking the time to find the DVD. It was late and the cardinals game was on.

If I went to three different stores to find Halloween Peeps. I was on a mission and they turned out great!

If I’m nervous about the Cardinals game. It’s so intense. I can’t take it.

If I’m super excited to attend the casual wedding reception this Saturday. M informed me the dress code is jeans. HA! When in roam.

If I almost passed out when I had to get my flu shot today. I can’t stand shots.

If I'm obsessed with winning this! Have you entered this GIVE A WAY yet? No? Good...Don't cause I need this.

That’s all folks! Happy Hump Day!

Head on over and link up!

You are what you eat....

How many times have you heard the phrase "you are what you eat"?

I've heard this a million times and now it's making sense. My weight has been at a total stand still. Not going up not going down. (The down part is more important) I been training for my first marathon and running like crazy but the weight is just not coming off. It has to be what I'm eating.

What am I eating you ask? Are you ready for this...get your popcorn because it's entertaining #saidbynooneever

Breakfast: I usually eat leftovers for dinner the night before. This morning I had Chinese food. (CARBS) and let’s not forget the coffee and cookie. Yes, cookie. I have a sweet tooth like a mug.

Mid-morning snack: apple and spark

Lunch: I brought what was left over from last night’s dinner. Pigs in a blanket. (CARB) yes, that piggy is covered in a buttery croissant and filled with cheese. I think this falls under the fast, cheap and easy category.

Snack: apple

Midafternoon: I'll have a spark

Dinner: tonight we are having hamburgers and homemade fries (CARB)

And since it's the playoffs, I'll mostly be watching the game with a beer (CARB) or a glass of wine.

I need a carb intervention. ASAP

I have to be honest with myself, I can run all I want but when I am shoving carbs down my pie hole…the scale will stay the same. I HAVE to let go of the carbs and the delicious beer. I mean wine is just as good. It has less carbs, yes it has more sugar but its nature’s sweet nectar and I just can’t go without. I have a 3yr old and a husband who refuses to put the toilet seat down. It’s for everyone’s safety that mommy gets her happy juice.

So since I’ve deemed myself a certified nutritionist (aka googled the crap out of diets on the World Wide Web) I’ve come up with a plan to make this scale move. (DAMMIT)



Change my diet. Eat to fuel my body. NOT to give my mouth something to do.

I’m cutting the carbs. BYE see you later bread. I will limit to one cheat meal a week. The other meals I will eat clean. Or at least try to eat clean. I will not be called cheap, fast and easy unless I’m shaking my thang for my husband.

Portions I’ve been pretty good about my portions. I used to be that mom who “finished H’s plate” cause it just not enough to save. Not anymore. Her plate is going to the trash and by trash I mean in Manny’s dog bowl.

I’m hoping this works. With the holidays around the corner I need the scale to say a happy number and stay. Does that make sense? I don’t need to be working on losing weight during the holidays, I need to work on maintain my weight.

What are some things you do to maintain your weight or loose a few pounds?

Especially with Halloween coming around the corner..Sweet tooth heaven. I need to resist. Which reminds me...

 Head on over to Ashley at A Cute Angle she's has a give away for Halloween.

Tuesday, October 15, 2013


It's Tuesday and I'm exhausted. like really exhausted.. I think sickness is trying to take over our home...again. The weather isn't helping either. It's cloudy, rainy and dark. I have my widows open no lights on and H is playing quietly in her room. (aka changing her clothes 34 times) eh, I clean it later. I am so comfy on this couch I don't think I'd move for a tornado.

Why am I so tired?

I stayed up way too late to watch to Cardinals loose. I mean really? Did you see the game? Was John Jay out of it or what? I'm pretty sure he was beat with socks with soap bars in them after the game. poor guy had an off day for reals.

The drive to STL just wears me out actually the 6 hour drive with a 3 year old who refused to sleep wore me out! Thank goodness we can buy booze on Sunday in MO, cause this girl loaded up.

Maybe running the GO STL race wore me out? Race recap later.

Whatever the reason, I'm sure the cure is having a lazy day. That cures everything.

Until next time blogger friends...

Wednesday, October 9, 2013


This week I’m saying SO WHAT

1. I skipped my run yesterday. My next half Mary is this Sunday. My longest run has been 10 miles. What’s three more miles? I don’t plan on getting a PR this race.

2. If I fed H McDonald’s yesterday. We were in a hurry and I knew she’d eat it. AND because of a friends FB post about McDonald’s “toy of the month” being the wizard of oz. M and I are obsessed with getting all of the characters. (thanks Samantha) I laughed a little when M said “These will be collectables one day” ha!

3. We are headed to STL this Friday and I have yet to do laundry or pack. When did I become so unorganized?

4. If my response is always “hm..That’s weird” to the “Chatty Cathy” in the office. I’m not listening lady. Please hush.

5.If I’ve spent most of my morning browsing this website. I know someone can use one of these! How cute are they?! I NEED one of these for my precious bottles of wine. Desiree at MACKE MONOLOGUE is hosting a give away. Go over there and check it out!

Go link up for Whatever Wednesday!

oh and GO CARDINALS!!!

What Marriage means to me

What marriage means to me.

Here I sit on Monday morning, not wanting to work. My normal ritual is to drink my spark while I browse my normal blogs. I came across a particular blog that was talking about marriage. I had to stop and read her intake.

Let’s be honest. Marriage aint easy and if someone can give me a little insight on it, I’ll take it. This adorable blogger explains what marriage means to her. As I read it I thought, man I really need to write down what marriage means to me. I laughed quietly to myself as I reminisced on the last 7 years of our relationship.

It all started with a cardinal’s game. I would say M and I fell pretty fast in “LOVE” if you will. He was “all in” within a month and was proclaiming his love for me. I guess I have that affect on people. I kid… I kid. We dated 3 yrs then I FOUND the ring and proceed to wear it when he wasn’t looking. Then he finally proposed and life threw us into a whirlwind of a out of state move, baby, family, death you name it, we went through it.

It’s easy to get caught up in the “wedding day” and not look at the full picture of marriage. Yes, my wedding day was the best day of my life (aside for having H)
After moving miles away from family and friends, our wedding day was more than perfect and just what our home sick hearts needed. We were surrounded by everyone we loved and…not to mention an open bar.
After a long night of dancing, laughing, cake and booze we sailed on our wedding day high for a few days then we drove our happy self home six hours away from everyone we knew and the marriage began.

Marriage takes work, it’s not always pretty and for the love of God it isn’t Disney. It’s more like Sex in the City if you ask me.

Here is what marriage means to me:

IT MEANS CHRIST IS YOUR ANCOHOR: Christ has to be the center of it all. That goes beyond marriage, Christ needs to be the center of YOU. I mean we ALL fall short of the glory of God, but with Christ nothing is impossible. Even marriage, some things in a marriage are bigger than you. You have to let go and let God. When M lost his mom, I had no idea what to say or do. I hadn’t lost anyone in YEARS. Do you ever pray and just not know what the heck to pray for? Yep, that was this girl. I had many prayers that went “Lord, I don’t even know what to pray, but we need you now more than ever…”

IT MEANS TO SHOW LOVE: This one is a tough. It’s not always easy to show love but it’s so important to show love in everything. Even when you are angry. Lord JESUS this isn’t easy, but it’s so important. I’m pretty spicy or like M says “excitable” if I’m angry you know it. I’ve learned you can’t take words back and at the end of the day will this little argument matter? M always says Is *insert ridiculous reason for an argument* really the end of the world? At the time it makes me angry but at the end of the day it’s so true.

IT MEANS COMMITMENT: Marriage to me means a commitment before God and all of your friends. Making a commitment to Love, Honor, and Cherish one another in good times AND bad. That’s pretty big. I always told M that divorce just wasn’t an option in my book. We may want one at times but it’s just not an option for me. If something is broke fix it. Period. Divorce is an easy out if you ask me.

Five on Friday


Next weekend I’m packing up the escape and heading to STL for the Go Half Marathon. This will be my first race to run in STL. I’m pretty excited to have friends and family cheering me on.


I think it’s time (WE and by WE I mean ME) to start planning a trip to Disney World. Have you been? I just know H would love it. I would love to incorporate the Disney Wine and Dine run with this trip. We shall see. I mentioned it to M a few months ago and he shot me down before I got the words out of my mouth.


My Garmin broke, for good. Can you please bow with me for a moment of silence?

I digress

I’ve been running el solo

Old school style

Like How Bruce Jenner trained


I’m a watch watcher when I run. I constantly check my distance and pace. It’s terrible. I thought I’d hate it but I like it. I no longer have to play mind games with myself. I can enjoy my run.


Tomorrow I am treating my hard working husband to a massage. Ok ok ok , I’m treating us both to a massage. I work hard too  M loves massages. It’s his happy place. I just don’t have the energy or the hand strength to constantly give him a massage. So tomorrow as a late anniversary present you can find us at the spa. I can’t wait.


Just in case you missed it. The Cardinals beat the Pirates 1-9 yesterday! LOVE POST SEASON BASESBALL!

So What Wednesday

It's so what wednesday folks!! I'm linking up today with Shannaon over at Life after I dew.. go check this girl out!

This week I'm saying So what…

If I didn’t leave the house all day yesterday! I showered and I got all the laundry done. Laundry is a process in our house. Ugh I loathe putting laundry away.

If I pulled out the Halloween decorations yesterday. H and I had a good time decorating. She loves it!! And I really do too. Except, now that H is older she doesn’t understand that glass pumpkins don’t bounce.

If I almost cried when I saw H ripped her (one and only) dance group picture. AND I didn’t even chew M a new because he was “watching her” when this happened. See, I’m making progress.

If I’m super duper excited about the new series of Homeland. GAH, love that show. The first episode was little slow but I know it’s going to get juicy.

If I just can’t get into the voice or parenthood. Sorry can’t do it.

If I hate using the reusable Keurig cup, it doesn’t taste the same. And it’s annoying.

If instagram video pisses me off. It takes too long to load.

If I ran out of dog food and just made Manny a lunch plate when I made H’s. Manny loved it! And now I’m his favorite.

If I dispise the Pirates. Can't stand them, their fans are rediculous!

If I only go to happy hour tomorrow before Bunco. The lady that is hosting it doesn't do booze. Really? Bunco and Booze go together, that's like peanut butter with no jelly, like milk with no get my drift. Plus the Cardinals are playing!

Happy Hump day!!
