Hey everyone who still checks my blog every now and then! I just wanted to give y'all a little update.
First, I completed my first 1/2 marathon a few weeks ago and did better than I had expected. I impress myself :-) ha ha, jk (a little). Although the weather was AWFUL, raining the entire time and below 40 degrees F, I really enjoyed it! I plan to do another in the fall. I will definitely be a fair weather friend to the races though. Not too hot or cold and I am in.
I really debated whether or not to post this photo.
1. I have no makeup on.
2. I just ran 13.1 miles in the rain and have naturally curly hair (bad combo).
3. It's not such a great photo.
Next on the updates, I got a serger for Mother's Day! I am super-DE-duper excited and cannot wait to learn how to use it. The day it was delivered we went out of town and I went crazy all weekend thinking about all the things I could have been sewing if I had been home. And now that I am home, it is still in the box. I'm funny that way. Hopefully I can learn how to use it this week and do a few posts on what I made :-)
Thirdly, now that the weather is nice again I want to start painting furniture. I have a few pieces around that house (and garage - thank you hubs for giving up your space!) that I would like to do this summer. Maybe some posts on that too.
Fourthly, my little m is turning 1 next month! I can't believe it has been a year already. Time flies. I am busy planning her sweet birthday party, which I plan not to put too much into it but who am I kidding? ha. Here is a pretty party I love (I think it was a shower, not sure on the credit - I'm not so great at that).
More random thoughts. Have you ever wanted to change the entire decor in your house? Surely, I'm not the only one? I want to do many, many changes to my living room, dining room, big M's room, (finish) my bedroom, my bathroom, the main bathroom, the Kitchen...ha ha, all but my little m's room. But my home is comfortable as it is and maybe I should wait until we buy a new home to change my style. I'm sure my hubs would appreciate that!
One more random thought. Big M and I were at the zoo the other day and he scared a giant lizard by growling at him. Still makes me laugh thinking about it. Oh and I got it on video! I will try to edit then post it (I have not attempted editing video yet). The world should see it. I thought the poor lizard was going to have a heart attack!
Oh and I can't believe I almost forgot! Potty training was a success! I am so thankful that I made it out alive. I think that might have been the hardest thing I have done as a mother to date (delivery was easy compared to this! I did have meds though).
Anyways, I miss posting and chatting with my blog land friends. Glad I could give an update though! Hope you all are doing well!
