What a difference a year can make...

It is pretty amazing how fast a year can go and how much your life can change in that time!  A year ago right around this time, I had just found out I was pregnant with who is now the light of my life.  A couple days later I ran the Bix race in Davenport.  After losing about 30 pounds in the spring I was convinced to run this race with my friend Lindsay. I had never run a race like this in my life, so why not start with one of the hardest mid distance races around (have you seen the Brady Street hill?) I trained for a couple of months, ran and finished the race, then faked my way through a couple of virgin bloody mary drinks and was pretty proud of myself.  Now a year later I have a beautiful baby boy, haven't run a single day since I crossed that finish line and to be quite honest I'm ok with that....but now it might be time to put that jogging stroller to good use!?!?

The Best Part of Waking Up....

Folgers or rather Starbucks is great in my cup but nothing beats when I wake up to the sounds of this little guy entertaining himself in his crib. If that's not enough to start my day off right then the smiles, kicks and chatter I get when I look over the side of his crib certainly do the trick!

Margaritaville 2013!

Every year my friend Katie's family holds a Margaritaville block party of sorts.  It started a few years ago and has become an annual event complete with margaritas (obviously), microbrew beer bar, her dad's band The Remains (originally fronted by my good friend Lily) and yummy food...this year they brought in a taco truck that was delicious!  Todd and I have made it a priority to attend since it started and this year was Lincoln's first of what I'm sure will be many Margaritavilles!  It was great to see my sorority sisters and their significant others and just relax!

A "Fairly" Fun Week!

We have been busy this week! A couple of trips to the fair to watch auntie Johannah show cows for the first time, many attempts at rolling over took place, tummy time, movie nights in the basement (trying to keep cool) and a fun visit from our friends Stacy & Nora.
