First, how do you like the new layout/theme?? I think its good for now until I have time to work on a more customized one!

Today, I just want to do a quick recap for the week on how my goals are going. THis should keep me accountable. I want to do it before the weekend because that is when I slip up the most.

Christmas 2012

Good morning!  I’ve been quiet the last few days because of the holiday so now its time for a recap.  First, let’s go through the pictures.  It was Stormageddon’s first Christmas so he needed his holiday photo.  He was so nice to pose for me!

We spent all day Monday cleaning the house and setting up for Christmas breakfast which we host at our

Photo Bomb

I’ve got nothing to talk about today!  So let’s just look at pictures

I’m still doing the #RNRBestOf Instagram event (competition? game?).

I’m also trying to get into #elf4health but with finals, it been difficult.  I start on Monday with an accountability buddy though so I have to get ready.  Yesterday, I made my own salad dressing which happened

Delicious Eats: Recipes of the Week

Today’s blog is all about food!  Between Pinterest and PunchFork, I have recipes coming out the wazoo!  I prefer PunchFork because there are more healthy recipes there and my favorite Paleo cook, Nom Nom Paleo, is one of the contributors.  Pinterest is nice when I’m browsing the web and want to save a recipe I find.  But with all these saved recipes, I should really

July So Far

First, I feel like my July goals are just slipping away! It has been hard this week with Rob around. My routine is all thrown off and he knows it! We did get up yesterday and went for a run. I almost didn’t go but then got a message from a friend that I couldn’t let Rob be a reason to slack off! It was

28th Birthday Recap!

Yesterday was my birthday! I’m not big on birthdays really. I prefer to just do whatever I want and hang out with Rob. Well, I did whatever I wanted but Rob was in NJ. So let’s recap my birthday! First off, let me show you what Rob got me for my birthday. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been posting these fancy-schmancy pictures on my blog

Good morning!  So this weekend was pretty relaxed.  There was a lot of time spent playing with Stomageddon:

As you can see, Rob did indeed find his lap cat.  He definitely has bonded with Rob over me!  Yay!  And he has to lay on someone when he wants to sleep.  How cute!

Anyway, enough about the kitty.  Rob also had his last rugby
