Momentum Monday #3

What a great weekend that was! Beautiful fall weather, continued progress on my projects, fun family time, fun gatherings with friends, and the Seahawks win! No complaints here 🙂

And now here we are, another Momentum Monday! Now that September is coming to a close, and I’ve got a few Momentum Mondays under my belt, I’ve noticed that some of my weekly goals might be a little far-reaching for what I can actually accomplish in a week’s worth of “free time” when I have a baby and a toddler to care for full time. And I don’t want to feel like I’m not making any progress if I don’t complete a goal by the end of the week, so I am going to change it up a bit and set one huge goal for the month of October and use my Momentum Monday posts to share my weekly progress updates towards that overall huge goal. We’ll see how this goes! Continue reading

Blue Friday Favorites!

Go Hawks!! Today’s Friday Favorites are all about the Seattle Seahawks! Here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, we all have some good football fun on Blue Fridays – which is hopefully every Friday from here on out through the Super Bowl! Fun Fact: my girl Zara (born Thanksgiving Day 2013) doesn’t know a Super Bowl without the Seahawks in it. This year, we’re going for three in a row! 🙂 (It doesn’t help that we’re starting the season 0-2, but moving on…) Let’s celebrate some Blue Friday Favorites…. In the spirit of the 12s (what Seahawks fans are called), I’ve got 12 Seahawks Blue Friday Favorites! GO HAWKS!! Continue reading

Car Funnies!

I came across a fun blog this week (shout out to Amanda at Meet @ the Barre!), and she wrote a hilarious post about a couple of funny driving stories from when she was younger. Seriously funny! Read it if you want a good laugh. Her post reminded me of a couple of funny car stories of my own from back in the day, and I had a good laugh at my younger self as well. Jeremy and I had just talked about one of these… he didn’t know me back then, but he sure gets a kick out of hearing about some of my younger antics.

I consider myself a great driver (now), but I’ll be the first to admit that I made some ridiculous decisions as a new driver. And here I am, sharing a few of the doozies on my blog. Enjoy!  Continue reading

Momentum Monday #2

It’s just another Manic Monday! Is it just me or is time just flying by?! I can’t believe it’s already been three Mondays since my last (and first!) Momentum Monday post. But just because I haven’t posted about them, doesn’t mean that I haven’t been working on them! I’ve actually been so busy with all of my never ending pile of projects that I just haven’t had time to sit down and write. But (hopefully!) that all changes now…

My Absolute *Favorite* Moment of Summer 2015

Summer 2015 was fantastic. (I’m sad to say it in the past-tense, so let’s just move on from that quickly!) I was pregnant for half the summer and have had my newborn for the second half. Obviously it has been wonderful and amazing and awesome (etc etc etc) since he has been born, but my #1 most memorable favorite moment of the summer was just hours before he was born. I know the exact moment that was my absolute favorite, and it is one that I will never forget!

goodbye summer hello autumn

Momentum Monday!

Hello Monday! New week, new start, new goals… and a new idea for my blog. Enter Momentum Mondays! I’m going to start off the week with a blog post detailing a new goal for the week, whether it be related to a fitness goal, a family plan, a nextpiration project, a house decor idea, a new recipe to try, etc. It will be something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile or something that just came to me over the weekend, but something that I want to tackle for the week ahead. And hopefully during the week or at least by the end of the week, I’ll have an update on it!

What’s Up Wednesday!

Well hello, last Wednesday of August 🙂 It’s time for another fun What’s Up Wednesday post link-up with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer. The start of September is a lot of things for me – this year, September 1 is my official 11-year anniversary with Jeremy of becoming boyfriend-girlfriend (2004), our 6-year anniversary of me saying “yes!” to his proposal in Hawaii (2009), and the month of September to me is the official start of fall, football, and leg warmers season! Let the fun begin!

Whats up Wednesday
