blooming bath {project 365 :: 9/365}

I can still remember the first time Preslee was in this tub from Blooming Bath.  I originally found out about it when I reviewed it on SIMPLE.  What a fun little tub.

She is now 5 months old and about to be considered in my eyes, too big for this.  What a relief on my back this was for the last 5 months thought!

Photo a Day :: #9~Daily Routine {#janphotoaday}

Although I'm not exactly sure what "daily routine" is meant to mean for this photo project, one of the most necessary parts of my daily routine is this. A simple little can that packs a huge (healthy at that) punch! No coffee for this girl, this does the trick!

bucket list {part I} :: inspiration from friend

When I first started thinking about running my marathon, I was saying to everyone "it's just something I want to do - something on my bucket list!"  Most of their reactions were simple...why would running 26.2 be on your bucket list? Pretty comical really since I knew many of their reactions before they even said them.

Well, while it was on my bucket list, I never took the time to actually write out my bucket list!

It wasn't until recently that I saw a post my friend Wiebke wrote on her blog about her bucket list.  It got me to thinking, why isn't mine wrote out?  How on earth can I imagine doing anything if I can't see it?  If it's not wrote out, is it even a reality?  When making goals in life/fitness/family/business, it's always been said you are going no where if you have no goal or direction in sight.  Well my husband and I have always said we will do nothing unless there is a written plan of action.

So here's to my life's goal - my bucket list {part I}:


:: FAMILY ::

Build my dream home on acreage
Have a long driveway with trees lining it
Have a pool
Have a beach home
Bring all three girls to Disney


:: FITNESS ::
Run a Marathon
Run a Half Marathon
Run a 25K
Run a 25K post foot and gastroc surgery

reflected smiles {project 365 :: 8/365}

Little Miss Preslee was supposed to be sleeping.  She woke and was all smiles.  ON our way to the living room we have a mirror.  She loves looking at herself and we make faces back and forth.  It's adorable.

I took this picture. I thought it was a waste, but decided to edit it.  I think it's super fun and love how it turned out.
