We had a great time celebrating our little Rex Man turning 4 over Spring Break. Early to rise, Rex was greeted with birthday hugs from his sibbies. Then we headed downstairs for a birthday donut and gifts. Rex got his first real bike (with training wheels) and he was really excited! We spent the day… Continue reading Happy 4th Birthday, Rex!
On Sat Mar 10, 2018, I ran my first 100km trail race and placed 5th for females and 10th overall, shattering my goal of breaking 15 hours with an official time of 13 hours, 48 minutes, and 34 seconds! It was in San Angelo, TX, hosted by Trail Racing Over Texas (TROT) at the San… Continue reading My First 100km Trail Run
So as you may know, this weekend I competed in and completed my first ever 100km race in Trail Racing Over Texas’s Crazy Desert Trail Run in San Angelo State Park! It was totally epic and I am planning a hugely thorough blog post devoted to it that will cover my nutrition before/during/after the race,… Continue reading Guest Blog Posts: From My 100km Race Crew!
I’m slow to post this but last weekend we had a few special things planned! First, Landri and Scott attended the Daddy Daughter Dance again this year! Landri got her hair done and had a blast getting ready to put on her beautiful princess dress. My favorite part of it was when she came out… Continue reading Dates With the Kids!
It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a mom for over five years now. Some days it feels like just yesterday that she was born, and then on others, I can’t even remember what my former life void of extra responsibilities and filled with heaps of personal freedom was even like! I miss those snuggly,… Continue reading Landri Is Half a Decade Old!
Gosh, I just read Ty’s birthday post from last year when he turned one (here), and it’s spooky to see what I wrote. “The third one is what put me over the edge (don’t take this personal, Ty Baby). Not sure if it was having three kids that did it, the simple fact that all three were… Continue reading Ty Baby Turns 2! [#TwoThreeFour]
When I first heard about Great Wolf Lodge last summer, I knew it was a place that I needed to bring our kids! And because Landri, Rex and I just returned from GWL in Grapevine, TX, I thought I’d do a blog post reviewing it for y’all. Also, since I was able to really test… Continue reading Great Wolf Lodge & Underwater Camera Product Review
I’ve made a homemade sugar scrub before, but it’s been a while. And so when I ran out of my store-bought one yesterday morning, I thought to myself, “I bet I already have all of the ingredients that I need to make my own, and I’ll just wash out this container and put it in here!”… Continue reading 3 Ingredient Organic Vegan DIY Sugar Scrub
Okay I have to share my latest obsession with y’all: Apple Cider Vinegar based (ACV) elixirs and blends. I’ve used ACV for a long time in my vegan cooking, especially for recipes such as raw salad dressings and sauces. And I’d heard of people drinking it straight, but had never tried that or any kind of ACV elixir or… Continue reading My Latest Obsession: Apple Cider Vinegar Elixirs
I’m so excited! I just made my first YouTube video for y’all. I’ve been promising this since my first 50 mile ultra earlier this year (or maybe even before??) and I finally got a new camera lens that makes filming myself much easier! Just please excuse my total lack of professionalism and quality as I’m… Continue reading Foam Rolling for Runners
