Hello!! First of all, thank you all so much for your sweet comments regarding my crazy side. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who knows how to through a temper tantrum. Today was much more successful. It was full of teaching, laughing, and food. Smoothie, Cliff bar + yogurt, carrots + hummus, … Continue reading

I’m a crazy person.

I let very few people into my crazy psyche. I think four people in my life have ever seen me lose it. Maybe five. But, I’m about to reveal a crazy moment to you all: Today, I set an arbitrary goal to run 2 miles/sub 14:00. This might not sound awesome to a lot of … Continue reading

Hello, Monday.

(Say that title like “Hello, Newman”) Eeesh it was tough getting up this morning, no? Well, I guess if you didn’t have a whirlwind spring break trip like I did, it might not have been so bad. I was seriously dragging this morning, but the day was surprisingly quick and painless. Foooood… Oats, kabocha, pepitas, … Continue reading

Yes, I forgot my camera.

source I just got back from New York City, and you’ll never believe it…I forgot my camera. I was so angry with myself, but the good news is that I have a camera-toting-dedicated-picture-taking best friend that documented the entire weekend – now I just have to beg her to share her pictures with me. Even … Continue reading

Bright Lights, Big City

Hello lovely friends! I’ve had a busy (but exciting) day, and eaten spectacular things throughout it. Shall we get started? Upon waking, I laid in bed and read this book. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me think. I highly recommend it. Then I climbed out of bed to refuel … Continue reading

Springtime in the Rockies

In October, the first snow of the season is always exciting. Even the snow through January is enjoyable. However, come March (or April, or May…) the snow gets old. Snow during spring break is a very typical occurrence in Colorado. While it makes me want to curl up in bed and dream of warm beaches, … Continue reading

Snowy Surprise

This morning, I awoke from a dream in which I was stuck. I couldn’t move or talk, and my mouth was FULL of sand. Ick. I popped out of bed, laced up my running shoes, and went for a four mile fun to shake that stuck feeling. I hate that dream. Upon returning, I had … Continue reading

Settle Down

Hello! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my spring break cleaning. Meeker came home at lunch today, and I was deep into my to-do list, cleaning, folding, organizing and smiling. He promptly told me to settle down, and reminded me that I was on Spring BREAK. However, despite what it looked like (I was mid-pantry clean out … Continue reading

Spring Break Started Right

Happy Weekend! I’ve been out, enjoying mine to the fullest. The snow has stopped, the sun is shining, and I’m reveling in the fact that I have a whole week off in front of me. I started Saturday with a nice walk in the park – literally – with Meeker and Punky. Then a green … Continue reading

We made it!

It’s spring break!! Today was just about as crazy as you can get for elementary school. Indoor recess + the day before spring break + an assembly + 2 birthday parties + being 8 years old = so much noise and chaos. I’m so dang happy that we made it to the end of this … Continue reading
