5 Things About Me Today

1. Things have been a little crazy around here. We are moving soon-ish so we’ve got some boxes going on, some stuff that we should store, but what’s the point if we’re moving soon, sorting and stuff going on. We’ve got a teething baby too so everything has just kind of gone to pot–if you could see the state of my living room. It’s one of those “it’s so overwhelming I can only gather the strength to look at Facebook” kind of things. ;)

2. Also, my baby is 7 months old today. I can’t believe it. I’m in denial so a 7 month update (which will probably be pretty emotional) is being delayed till next week.

3. This is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp air, the warm afternoons, the hoodies, pumpkin doughnuts, spiced cider, changing leaves. God really puts on a show in fall.

4. If it is a snowpocalypse again this year I may tell Nate we can move back to Texas. Do not tempt me Polar Vortex.

5. I was cleaning out some stuff in the attic and I have jeans I bought in high school. They were my favorite pair. They don’t fit anymore, they’re worn, and not really in style. But I’m keeping them anyways.

Mythbusters: Running is Better than Walking

So it has been a while since I did a Mythbusters post—well actually I just did that one on the best types of cereals for breakfast. (That was fun! I’m still a big fan of cereal for breakfast!) Today I want to address “running is better than walking”…you may not hear it out loud, but there it is definitely out […] more

Tuesday Thoughts: Goals for Fall Bootcamp

Hey there!  We still have unpacking to do from our trip, laundry, cleaning and general catching up. Blech. But I do love getting back into a routine. Hoping a more “regular and boring” week will translate into a productive one on lots of fronts–work, blog, house, and packing. So although last week was a lot of fun, it wasn’t my […] more
