What I Was Up to – August 2018

August! We’ve gotten really good eggs from Hungry Harvest (hungryharvest.net) – this one box had almost every egg with a twin yolk. I got Harry Potter themed macarons and they were awesome. There were four flavors that each reflected a different House color. So cool and tasty! https://www.ma-ka-rohn.com/ I got this Jaws themed set from Origami Owl. A friend sells … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up To – March 2018

Here we are in last March – it must have been cold and Willow was snuggled up in my hood. Spotted this giant turbine at work. Seen at a fried chicken place: A drive by the Air Force Memorial: This hat still kills me. This was a race that Doug, Janine and Ron did that was St. Patrick’s themed. the … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Monday – Animal Kingdom

Monday was our last full day at Disney. (We had an early flight out Tuesday morning.) We spent it at Animal Kingdom – largely because that was the day I was able to score Fast Passes for the new Flight of Passage ride. I was curious to see all the Avatar stuff. I had been a little skeptical – I … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Sunday – Epcot

Sunday morning was the Star Wars Half. Betsy, who is an amazing artist made a bunch of signs, which I eagerly agreed to use, since I had none. I did not end up catching Betsy, unfortunately. But I did see Doug, and Betsy’s race signs went over super well because they are awesome. I wish I was that talented. My … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Saturday – Magic Kingdom

Saturday of our Disney trip was a Magic Kingdom day. We started out with a photoshoot. I got this Snow White sweater dress on sale at baby Gap (thanks Conley!) when I was pregnant and I was so so excited for her to wear it and she looked awesome. Baby pics this way. We bought Elena a teddy bear and … Continue Reading →


Disney, April 2018 – Friday – Epcot

This post is gonna have a ton of baby pictures AND a ton of Disney pictures, including food. So, fair warning. I’m almost glad it’s taken me so long to blog this because omg, my daughter is 10 months old now and is enormous, and no one told me how badly I would miss her being a little squishy. This … Continue Reading →


Cherry Blossom Weekend

We got the gang back together this past spring for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler. It was a nice chance to see old race friends we don’t get to see that often, and for them to meet Elena. Janine also threw Ron a surprise birthday party, which was pulled off perfectly! We started off the weekend by Conley, Doug, and … Continue Reading →


Elena’s First Snow

I haven’t done much baby posting for a bunch of reasons, but I had to post a couple of these because they crack me up. We had a late snow day in March, so we bundled Elena up and took her out into her first real snow, and I was super excited for her to experience it. She was not … Continue Reading →


Another Baby Shower!

My lovely co-workers also gave me a baby shower! They surprised me with this incredible custom cake that was just perfect. Desiree, one of our photographers, designed it. She even got Willow in there. The theme was, yep, Beatles. Seriously – Halloween and The Beatles! Could there be more “me” baby shower themes? Since I didn’t want a super-baby or … Continue Reading →


Baby Shower!

I have awesome friends, who threw me this awesome baby shower! I was kind of a pain about it because I didn’t tell anyone I was pregnant for a very long time, for a multitude of reasons. So my friends couldn’t send out invites until I did. I didn’t want anything super gendered, I didn’t want baby games, I didn’t … Continue Reading →
