Scenes from the Week

I'm both scared and disturbed that this needs to be posted on the bathroom door in a place where only adults work.

Vegan bread. Very, very good. I still prefer Silver Hills but it is very hard to find it locally.

Revealing my inner super hero with my pink Pro Compression marathon socks. Every day of pregnancy feels like a marathon to me.

Crochet project number 2: beanie. After about 50 failed attempts, I think I finally figured it out.

The makings of granola bars from the Oh She Glows cookbook I bought. The family cannot stop eating them. As soon as my oldest starts school, I'll have to switch to nut-free butter but these will be an every day snack for him.

Random musings from a First Trimester Pregnant Lady

I’m full of random thoughts at the best of times. I’m pretty sure my poor hubby rolls his eyes in disbelief on a near-daily basis at some of the randomness I share with him. You’d think after all these years, I’d learn to exercise my filter to keep from embarrassing myself as often as IContinue Reading

10 Random Things About Me

Remember those old chain emails that used to go around? Fill out these questions and send them to all your friends and miraculous things will happen?! Yeah, those. I used to LOVE doing those. Not because I believe in the karma of them (for the record, nothing miraculous or horrendous happened to me as aContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: The studying edition

With my exam coming up on Thursday, I’m entering into crunch time (and possibly panic mode) to get my studying time in while going to work and not neglecting my kids or home too much. This will be a very high caffeine week. I make no apologies for that. Come Thursday afternoon, I will beContinue Reading

My Quest for Simplicity and Healing

This year has been a year of transition for me. I went back to work in February, I committed myself to a whole bunch of running awesomeness and finally “came out” as a vegetarian to my mother (last week…still not 100% sure how that’s gone over. It’s a complicated thing). One of the biggest transitionsContinue Reading

8 Signs you might be a Runner

So you’ve decided to take up running. Maybe you’ve been at it for awhile, maybe you’re coming back to it after a long hiatus of baby-birthing, couch-potatoing or general life-overtaking. Whatever the reason, you’re lacing up and heading out the door. People are asking you what you’ve been up to, and you’re about to sayContinue Reading

Motivation Monday: Finding your Inner Super Hero

It’s a bird, a plane…it’s super running mom! (and yes, my hubby married me in spite of the house coat. He must have been attracted to the chic running clothes hiding underneath)

What would you do with a day to yourself?

This weekend is one of celebration. Not only is it the last weekend before Ragnar SoCal, but Hubby and I will be celebrating 6 years of marriage. We’ll be celebrating by going out for a big brunch and doing something we haven’t done since becoming parents over 3 years ago: we’re shipping the kids offContinue Reading

Thoughts for Thursday

In honour (or perhaps in dread) of my return to work next week, I thought I’d share a few things that made me laugh, all work-related. It’s nice having a place to go that verbalizes what we know we all think about Enjoy and have a fantastic Thursday!!

Give the Gift of your Time

How many posts have you read about the perfect gift for this person or that? For runners, lifters, cross-fitters? Heck, I’ve posted 3 gift guides right here already.   So what’s left to post? How about the free gift ideas we can give one another that require so little but mean so very much. HereContinue Reading
