Be jealous. All of you.

Be jealous. All of you.

4. How tall are you? 5’9″

5. How much do you weigh? The right amount for me.

7. Any piercings? 2 in my right ear lobe, 2 in my left, left tragus (sp?). I had a belly button ring and a couple more ear piercings but my old age and conservative husband keep demanding I remove them all.

12. Favorite song? I like anything that I can sing horribly off-pitch to while convincing myself that I could totally win The Voice.

13. How old are you? Much older than my maturity level would suggest.



14. Zodiac sign? Sagittarius, I think.

21. How long does it take you to shower? Probably not as long as it should.

32. The book you’re currently reading? The 5 Love Languages of Children (I’ll be reviewing soon. Sneak peak: it’s completely rocking my existence).

Pretty amazing read.

34. Last person you talked to? Myself. What?….you do it too, admit it.

44. Favorite piece of jewelry? Wedding band.

45. Last sport you played? My level of coordination doesn’t encourage participation in team sports. I did try my hand at water polo at my swim club once or twice.

47. Favorite chat up line? Seriously?

48. Have you ever used it? …

50. Who should answer these questions next? YOU!

Birthday Celebrations and a Visit with the Minimalists.

Yesterday was a fun day of celebration. My hubby’s birthday. I love birthdays. I used to not give them much thought and truthfully, I don’t really think too much about my own, but my hubby and kids are a whole different ballgame. I love how we approach the day: not with a focus on giftContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: The strangest marathon I didn’t run

Ok, I had the craziest dream last night. I’ve been thinking a lot about some of my goals and plans for after baby comes. I guess I’ve been thinking a lot about running, racing and my ultimate goals and my brain needed to do something with all that mojo. I had a dream that IContinue Reading

My Gym Pet Peeves

Recently, I had a gym pet peeve moment. Maybe it’s the hormones or maybe it was that it was Monday, I was tired and my coffee wasn’t doing what I needed it to (i.e. revive my still-slumbering brain into a usable piece of genetic mastery). I was on the dreadmill, happily watching Live with KellyContinue Reading

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

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
