Feeling a little Sombre

ombre hair

I asked...you answered...I listened.  Thanks to your Fashion Friday advice I finally sat down to an entire afternoon at the hair salon, and put in some subtle ombre coloring {my hair stylist says they call it "sombre"}.  Thanks to my friend Courtney for referring me to a new hair salon, I loved it!  For any of you local ladies I highly recommend seeing Christina Albera at Salon Diva.  She's young, ...

Memorial Day Weekend Recap

Hudson Party 1

Isn't there something out in the blog world called Wordless Wednesday?  Where you just post a ton of photos and let them speak for themselves?  I'm about to throw down my first Wordless Wednesday card today because, quite frankly, thinking as far back as Friday seems like a distant memory to me. While not completely wordless let me sum up the past 4 days in one, long, run-on sentence because ... [ Read More ]

Shout out to the little guy!

Shane 18 months

Hello Wednesday

May 2013 Beach Day 2

I feel like I've fallen off the blog wagon, and I'm not sure how to jump back on.  I told myself that I would never make this blog feel like something I have to do, or it will have lost it's purpose in it being something that I enjoy doing.  Typically I write my posts late at night once Greg has fallen asleep next to me.  He goes to bed at a reasonable time, like most people would do when they get ...

Fashion {advice} Friday

ombre hair

Here I am again, back with a Fashion Friday, asking for YOUR advice!  You will never find me giving fashion advice here.  I am the girl who wanders around Forever21 for an hour  trying to copy Pinterest outfits off my phone, and ends up leaving with a black shirt. So it's been years since I have dyed my hair and several months since I have cut it.  99.9% of the time you will see my hair in a ... [ Read More ]

Workout Wednesday {5-15-2013}


So if you read my last Workout Wednesday post I dropped some very obvious hints to Greg that all I wanted for Mother's Day were some new running tanks, and to relax.  Pretty contradictory wouldn't you say?  He must actually read my blog, because he came through and hooked this mama up!  Aside from feeling pampered and getting a couple of cute new tank tops, he surprised me with a year long ...

Workout Wednesday


Well it's the time of the week again, to hold myself accountable for my workouts, or my lack there of.  Last week was good, I got in two Turbo kickboxing classes and a couple of long runs.  Then this past weekend happened...Greg got super sick with some random flu-like stomach virus and it knocked him out cold.  Friday and Saturday were a total wash with him being stuck in bed all day, so I wasn't ...
