Today marks a week past the end of the 21 Day Superhero Challenge that I started earlier this month. And, in conclusion … I’ve got mixed feelings about how it went as a whole. So here’s a mixed-feelings kind of post, mmkay?
To start … Continue reading
Happy Monday! Or, rough Monday – if you had a long weekend like me, today might be a tad
rough on the eyes. We got out a tad early on Wednesday, and had Thursday and Friday for the holiday, giving us lots of time for celebrating. And celebrate we did!
Wednesday, we joined some family friends for dinner and a movie – a perfectly relaxing way to start our “vacation”. Thursday, we headed up to Iowa City for dinner with my side of the family at my cousin’s house. It’s been forever since I’ve been in Iowa City, and the trip in was full of memories of my days at University of Iowa. I was actually a little bummed that it was the holiday since everything was closed. I think I’ll need to make a trip back! Continue reading
This weekend, I redesigned my blog (if you didn’t notice – open your eyes!). I have a slew of web skills, I’ll admit. But I don’t like to make something harder than it needs to be. I’ve got a lot of balls in the air, so when it came to this redesign, I wanted to keep things SIMPLE. So, I went investigating for a plug-in that would help me out.
I blog in WordPress, so unfortunately, if you’re in Blogger, this won’t do much for you. Oh, and you should probably just switch to WordPress anyway. Then come back. After some searching, I found the plug-in called “Theme Test Drive” and installed it. Continue reading
Hey all! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty crazy busy, but in a great way. Even though the holidays haven’t officially started, I feel like this weekend was a good indication of the season to start. You know? And not just because it’s gotten ridiculously cold in Iowa. Continue reading
I knew this was coming, yet, I’m not sure I was as prepared for it as I could have been. Crossfit was going SO well … and granted, it still is. But the nature of the beast of Crossfit is that you’re always working. And some weeks, when you’re just not quite hitting that move right, it can be incredibly frustrating! Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! First of all, I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who congratulated me after yesterday’s post. Like I said – I am BEYOND excited! One thing that I didn’t really address was a question one of my friends asked me – and that was, will I blog about the wedding/planning?
Well, yes, and no. I’m a big believer that I’m not going to tell you all of my plans before my wedding. I mean, come on! I want it to be a surprise! At the same time, obviously I blog from a personal side, so it will come up here and there. Also, there might be a few wedding-related activities that I “try out”, so those might get some attention, too. You’ll just have to wait and see! Continue reading
So I think that one of the first things that people think when I tell them how I’m eating, is that I must be starving. That’s simply not the case! Even though I’ve cut out sugar and grains for the 21 Day Superhero Detox, as well as dairy (trying to give this Paleo thing a shot) I’m still eating a lot of tasty food. Plus, it’s food to fuel my body – not to just burn off! Continue reading
Lately, a few bloggers (and Blends) I know have been doing a post called Sunday Confessions. Now, I was raised Catholic, so at first, this was a bit odd to me … Much different than the confessions I was used to! But, their way looked like fun. Just a list of random things that you feel like “sharing with the group” so to speak. Mine aren’t serious, that’s for sure. But I hope you enjoy some Sunday afternoon rambling … Continue reading
Currently … life’s been busy. I know that I said that yesterday, but ya know, it just has. These surveys are fun to put together, partly because, I think they let me stop and reassess the “little things” in life that get brushed by in the craziness. Maybe this is just me rambling, but that’s what I think. So, let’s get started, shall we? Continue reading
