December Foodie Penpals

This was my first month participating in Foodie Penpals. If you’ve never heard of this before, each month you get assigned a different person to send a package of foodie goodies too (someone also is assigned to you). The spending limit is under $15 dollars so it’s not terribly expensive. This is open to bloggers […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Well, 2011 is slowly coming to an end. Like every year, this year flew by! We had quite the year: moved 4 times, traveled to Asia, celebrated wedding anniversary number 1; it was definitely a lot of fun.

Every year, I (like many people) make new year’s resolutions and I (like many people) rarely […]

Scenes from Christmas

So, I guess I should start taking down my Christmas decorations? I swear the time flies between Thanksgiving and Christmas…a little too fast.

We had a great time in Arizona though! The weather was pretty much perfect (around 60 and sunny everyday) and we got to visit with friends and family which always equals a […]

12 Days of (Healthy) Christmas, Days 5-1

Okay, I’ve been the worst blogger ever. I have to say, I have been so busy with holiday stuff lately!! We’re going back to Colorado today so the holiday is officially over. The time has FLOWN by, it’s kind of crazy. I feel like I just got here but it’s been over a week!! Obviously, […]

12 Days of Christmas, Day 6

Alright finally up to date: Day 6 (yes, I’m counting Christmas day as day 1). I’m actually starting to get excited about Christmas. I think before today, it hasn’t really felt like Christmas just because we’ve been so busy, but now I’m startin’ to feel it. We have the Christmas music playing in the car, […]

12 Days of Christmas, Day 7

Sorry I skipped yesterday! I got sidetracked by some major Christmas shopping so today you’ll get two posts.

So far, home has been great! I’m always so busy the minute I get here which can sometimes be frustrating, but I can’t complain. It has been a challenge sticking to healthy eats while home. We’ve been […]

12 Days of (Healthy) Christmas, Day 8

I made it to Phoenix. Of course, totally jinxed the whole “good weather” thing as it happens to be raining. Seriously? It rains like, 3 times a year here. Apparently only when I come in town. But, it’s still pretty nice, low 60’s so I can’t complain.

I’m heading to a Christmas party today so […]

12 Days of Christmas, Day 9

Here we are on the 9th day of Christmas. Time is actually flying by. I’ve been looking forward to this trip home for quite some time now and I’m leaving today!

I love Arizona in the winter time. It has this distinctive smell that just makes me so happy. You can’t beat the sunsets either, […]

12 Days of (Healthy) Christmas, Day 10

Well, 1 day closer to Christmas and Friday, how great is that? I’m heading home to Phoenix tomorrow and can’t wait!

I almost have all my Christmas shopping done…except not really. I have one side of the family done, so close enough right? I did quite a bit of online shopping this year which leads […]

Running with Music

The snow and ice melted quite a bit today making my run a little less dangerous. Although I love a little danger in my life, I’d also like to keep my teeth. I decided to stray from my training schedule and do my long run today since the weather was so nice (don’t tell Hal […]
