I forgot …

We were out all day yesterday exploring and I did something that I don’t think I’ve ever done before. 

Blog … woman. You have a daily blog. Oooops!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you have so much fun that you forget your normal routine!!!

On the road again …

In the words of Willie Nelson … ROAD TRIP! OK, fine. He didn’t say those exact words. He made it sound way better in his song. But still, when he wrote it he was clearly just as excited as I am about the whole thing. HA!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you just can’t wait to get on the road again!!!

Ready to eat (in Alaska) …

This summer I am traveling to Alaska with a friend of mine. I can’t wait! I’ve always wanted to go. AND the best part of our trip is that we get to spend time with one of our closest friends and her family.

For weeks now we have been discussing all the places we will go once we get there. It’s all very exciting! Because I’m a big foodie, FOOD has come up a few times. I love experiencing the places I travel to through food. You literally get a taste for the region. It’s so fun! 

This morning I woke up early and was bored so I turned to social media, HA! On my Facebook newsfeed I found an article  “The Best Burger by State”. Well, that got me going. I proceeded to research all “The Best” food recommendations for Alaska … and send them all to my friends. Did I mention it was early?

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are ready to eat!!!

A fun last minute decision …

This morning Sid and I did a 10k and we had a BLAST! It was “part one” of the Pixie Dust Challenge, an event included in Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland. It includes two races equaling 19.3 miles that is to be completed over two days. Until about 3 p.m. yesterday we weren’t even registered. Heck, we hadn’t really even considered it until a few hours before that. Honestly, it’s all just a blur.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you make a really fun last minute decision!!!

A sour day (YAY!) … 

If you haven’t noticed by now, I am a major FOODIE. And I’m happy to say that I’ve raised a bunch of them too! I’ve always strived to teach my crew the importance of balance in their lives but especially in the areas of fitness and nutrition. Despite the hard work and diligence that goes into both, I always wanted them to find the joy them too. When it came to nutrition and the foods they ate I wanted them to understand that it didn’t all just magically pop out of our oven or refrigerator. I wanted them to understand that there was a process and a love that goes into the growing and preparing of food, long before it ever entered our home. So over the years we frequently found ourselves at food festivals and local farms and shops enjoying how REAL food was made. It’s been so much fun!

Today we are heading out to make more food adventure memories. We will be attending a Lemon Festival. With all four of my kids home I couldn’t be more excited to share this pucker-faced day with them!

Well, I hope you all have a sour day!!!

A bed hog …

We left yesterday on a little trip to Northern California. G3 was recently accepted into Sonoma State University and he has a tour scheduled for later today. Although he’s still undecided, it’s all very exciting. I’m sure I’ll have plenty more to write about this subject later today, so I will keep this entry about my attempt at sleep last night.

When we travel Reese sleeps with me. Being in an unfamiliar place she wants her mommy close by. I totally get it. And it’s quite sweet. Well, for the first few hours anyway. Then she becomes not so good at sharing. Not. At. All.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you aren’t a bed hog!!!

Happy … 

Today has been a great day! This morning Sid and I tried out a donut shop, DK’s Donuts in Santa Monica (yes, we WILL travel for donuts). They are know for their purple donuts made from a potato. No joke! We also got to spend some time with one of our running mentors and teammates. Seriously, this woman is an inspiration! Then when we got home we found out that G3 got his second college acceptance letter. This one is from Sonoma State! All I can say is that my heart is full!

Well, I hope you all have a day where lots of things make you happy!!!
