Life Is Good

A whole lot has happened over these last few months:Read More »

I’m telling people I turned 29…

Because 32 is just too dang old, in my opinion. 😉

It was a good birthday today, in fact – weekend. Managed to squeeze in 40 hours into four days and was able to take a three day weekend, and it was quite lovely. Stayed up too late and slept in too late – something that never happens to me anymore, and boy did I pay for it each morning. Was it worth it? Yes. Read More »

Oh yeah.. I’m totally not ready for Christmas this year…

I have turned into a baking-researching-cookie fiend as of late. Getting all passionate and excited over the simplest recipes. Last Thursday at work, we celebrated Thanksgiving and I made some Chocolate Crinkle cookies. They were flavored with natural peppermint oil and had white chocolate morsels inside each one. I made approx 60 but the recipe called for 50. I made themRead More »

One Year Older!

It is going on midnight as I type this sentence out. Two minutes remain of my 31st birthday, and I am happy to report that it was a fun-filled day. Woke up rather late but that’s allowed, and it is a Saturday too. Clint and I drove to Red Robin for lunch – ate our weight in food, at least I did. He was smart about it and discovered his stopping point. I’m still not hungry and that’s the only thing I ate today. Besides cake, of course. Then we hopped back into the car and drove downtown Indianapolis where we went to Circle Centre Mall and straight to Godiva – for a shake. OH SO GOOD. Wandered around the mall and two floors, visited several Read More »

C25K – W1D2 – Done!

And boy do my legs hurt.. I’m walking around the apartment as if I were a duck, taking baby steps as taking full strides are just too painful.

I never thought, at at 15 years old that my 30 year old body would be so out of shape that jogging/walking for 20 minutes would nearly put me under, but it has. My sister and I were sprinting the other kids in our neighborhood as if it were nothing. We’d rather run around outside after school instead of inside watching TV. I’ve become the opposite. Yesterday, Alexis wanted to go bike riding with us. We’d have to dig them out of the Read More »

Back To the Future

**Edit**

OMG I totally forgot I couldn’t directly link images from Angelfire to well, anywhere. I realized this mistake this morning when I checked this blog via my phone but was unable to remedy anything till I got home. Now Angelfire refuses to let me save my own images to my computer so I can upload them. :/

It is tornado season here in the Ohio Valley.

I’m afraid of tornadoes, tornado sirens, thunder and severe weather. Lightning I can handle as long as it doesn’t strike me. It is Severe Weather Awareness Week and today the city sounded the sirens as a test twice, both caught me off guard. I didn’t know that it’d be tested – as that happens always at 11 AM Fridays. The first one went off at 10:45 while I was at work. I jumped in my chair and my co-workers laughed. I tried to Read More »

AA isn’t in my near future…right?

This weekend was a blast. Seriously. Friday after I got home from work, I found Alexis and Clint patiently waiting on the couch as I raced to freshen up and head out the door for festivities. Dinner at Longhorn’s Steakhouse, a scary movie (Silent House) and bowling. Lots of fun! Poor Alexis was scared throughout the movie and with bowling, she didn’t have much luck with it but in time she’ll be okay. Not saying I’m a pro – far from it but we Read More »
