2016…it’s going to be big

Published on December 30, 2015, by in Uncategorized.

Wow. It’s been more than 6 months since I have last blogged. To be honest, I needed a break; 2016 will be my 12th year of blogging and that is a long time.   So much happened since I last sat down and wrote. One of the year’s highlights was my second niece was born! We did a lot of traveling. I mean a lot. So. Much. Travel. But it was amazing and I loved every minute with family and friends.   We also had new adventures in Chicago. Brian went to his first ever Bears game. I took up pottery on the wheel. Now we have more hand thrown pottery than we will never need. And did a lot of baking, cooking, and drinking some green smoothies. So, that brings us to today. Literally. Beautifully snowy today.   So what is going to happen from here on out? I

New Year’s Resolutions 2014

Published on December 31, 2013, by in Update.

Summer goals

Published on May 31, 2012, by in Update.

I feel like I have been a lazy bum lately. My laziness has inspired me to set some goals. When I first started making the list, all the goals seemed to be geared toward all of the foods I wanted to make and eat this summer. After looking over the list, I would have to run a marathon every week to not weigh 400 pounds by the end of the summer. Time to rework the goals. Guidelines: To complete goals by Sept 21, 2012(the last calendar day of summer). 1) My first goal is to complete 3 half marathons this summer. Notice I didn’t say run 3 half marathons this summer. I actually have a half marathon in 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have fallen off the training wagon. If I was able to run the whole thing, I would be really amazed with myself. I don’t think I will be
