No Empty Plates this Holiday Season – WITH Your Help!

Sometimes life isn't fair. There are days, weeks, months, even years where sometimes life hands you lemons. And not even the kind you can make lemonade with. Nope, sometimes life gives you rotten, worm infested lemons. And sometimes despite how hard you try to get out of that situation, you simply can't get by without a little help.

Elf on the Shelf Guide for the Exhausted

Many years ago a sweet co-worker of mine gifted my family with our very own Elf on the Shelf. It was a hard time for us and I was so touched by the gift. Rudy quickly became a loved family tradition and has brought lots of laughter to our holiday seasons during the years.

Disney Wine & Dine 10K - I DID IT!

It finally arrived. The moment you all have been waiting for and the event I have been training for since August. This past weekend I spent an AMAZING time with many of my dearest friends - and I also ran 6.21371 miles through Epcot. Because, why not?

Couch to 10K Week 10 Review - THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

And so here we go. I will be in sunny Orlando soon and in just 6 days, The Walt Disney World Wine and Dine 10K will be right in front of me. Here are all the thoughts that are currently going on in my head in song version.

Couch to 10K Week 9 Review - Everything Hurts

I know what you are thinking. What happened to weeks 7 and 8?!?! Life. Life keeps happening! I have this lofty goal and as much as I would love to have more time to run it is getting very difficult to do so. I won't run in the dark and I keep running out of daylight! It is already dark by the time I get home from work and even if I WAS a morning person, it isn't light out until just before 7 when I have to start getting ready for work. On top of trying to squeeze in these runs when I can - everything hurts. OK maybe not everything . . . mainly my calves. I keep stretching and doing yoga - which does help. But - the soreness still remains.

No Time to Vote? Vote Early!

Like ALL moms - my time is limited. There is a lot us moms sacrifice for the better of our family to allocate more time to them. When is the last time I had lunch with friends? I have turned down taking fun classes and many a girl's night out. Hobbies have been put on the back burner (do I even know HOW to scrapbook anymore?), and skipping out on a Saturday run I was looking forward to is common. It's all in a day's work when you have a family that needs you. But - what about voting?
