Couch to 5K Running

Couch to 5K Running

  Over the past several years, I’ve started the Couch to 5K program many times. If you’re not familiar with Couch to 5K (C25K), it’s a program that has specific running/walking intervals to help couch potatoes to run an entire 5K distance in 8 weeks. It’s such a great way to jump start your running and I particularly like to use the program when I’m getting back into working out (such as after having a baby […]

Four Month Update – 4.27.2016

Four Month Update – 4.27.2016

Month four! I can’t believe it. The past four months feel like such a blur–life sure does move quickly with three little ones. Most days I fall into bed in a fit of exhaustion and am not nearly ready enough to get up the next morning when the time comes. But we’re having fun (most of the time) and now that Cara is more than a bump on the log, the girls are enjoying her […]

Creating My Happy List

Creating My Happy List

Two months ago I read a post by Modern Mrs. Darcy about the things that are currently saving her life. At that point I was deep in the newborn trenches, barely getting two hours of sleep in a row, and having a hard time focusing on anything saving my life. But the idea stuck with me. Two months later there are many sunny days, but the days are long. Sometimes the evenings are even longer. It’s […]

A Day in the Life – 2016 Event Link-Up

A Day in the Life – 2016 Event Link-Up

  I love this day so much. Well, I’m assuming I will as I loved it last year so much. Over the past couple of years, I’ve shared a few days of mine at random and commenters always say they’d like to record a day. Thus the Day in the Life blogger event was born. I meant to do a fall session last year, but time got away from me, so here we are a year […]

A Day in the Life with a Two Month Old

A Day in the Life with a Two  Month Old

Ignore the title–you all know that I also have an almost 5 year old and 2.5 year old in addition to the 2.5 month old. Just needed a way to distinguish this post from some of my other Days in the Life posts…including one I have planned for next week with all three girlies at home. I recorded below from Thursday March 10th. I recorded the below in part in preparation for the Day in […]

A Day in the Life – Blogger Event Coming Soon

Hi everyone! Can you believe that a year has already passed since the first A Day in the Life Blogger Event? I had so much fun last year and was overwhelmed by the participation. I meant to do another round in the fall, but time got away from me. Several people have already expressed interest in a second Day in the Life link-up, so I hope that you’ll all join again (or for the first […]

Two Month Update – 2.27.2016

Two Month Update – 2.27.2016

Well if time flew quickly with my second baby, it is going at warp speed with my third. Make it stop, make it stop!! But every day I am more and more in love with this sweet babe. Cara is a joy and I’m so happy she’s part of our family. Sleep – Cara is a great little sleeper most of the time. We did go through a bit of a rough patch the first […]

Goodbye 2015. Hello 2016!!

Goodbye 2015. Hello 2016!!

What do you mean today is the last day of January?? Are you sure?  As I’m still transitioning to life with a newborn…and three kids, I thought about skipping this post when I didn’t get it up by the beginning of the month, but it’s tradition. Plus eventually life will smooth out and I’ll be able to think about more than when and what my children ate last. When I look back at my list […]

One Month Update – 1.27.2016

One Month Update – 1.27.2016

  A month! It’s just not fair–not fair at all. Of course by now I know all too well how quickly the time goes. As difficult as the first few weeks are, I’m not ready for my baby to get bigger! I wish she’d stay teeny tiny for just a little longer. Even still, I can tell she’s grown so much since she was born. Cara has fit in perfectly with our crazy family–while I […]
