Failing At Getting It All Done

Making Lists

So I feel a little sheepish writing this, but I've been busy. So busy, that blogging has fallen off my radar. And sheepish because who isn't busy? Who doesn't have about a 100 things to try to carry out during the day? I know I am not the only one. At first I thought I'd just take a few days [Read More ...]

One Month In

A Year From Now You Will Wish You Had Started Today

It seems like just yesterday I pledged to run 400 miles in 2014, and yet here it is - February.  A month later.  What have I accomplished? Quite a bit actually, and I'll say it, I'm proud! For the month of January, I ran 41.5 miles. Total Time, 6:52:53! Average Pace/Mile ~10 [Read More ...]

The amount she is learning astounds me. Every day she comes home with something new to tell [Read More ...]

Kale and Mushroom Wrap

Kale and Mushroom Wrap

When I heard that Giada De Laurentiis had a new cookbook out, I really wanted to check it out. As you may know (or may not) I've had a girl crush on her ever since I made her Linguine with Shrimp and Lemon Oil.

400 Miles in 2014

400 Miles in 2014

Let me start this off with a Happy New Year! I still can't believe it is 2014. To me, it seems like just yesterday IT people were panicking over the Y2K problem...I guess what they say is true, once you have children time flies.
