Hi Again!

Hi to anyone who decides to stop by! I haven't posted since May...after I got frustrated. But I am back! Its a new year...new goals etc. Let me break it down....

1) I'm training for the Disney Princess half marathon in February. Training is going well and it will be my first race since 2009.

2) I hope to blog at least once a week. I think I used to get frustrated trying to come up with something to say everyday. Once a week is definitely do-able

3) I'd like to make another one of these this year....
So those are my little goals of 2011!! Maybe I should catch everyone up on what I've been up to during my hiatus!

Well obviously raising my little cutie...Carson. He's not so little anymore! He's crawling alllllllllll over the house now..pulling himself up on furniture...and making lots of monster noises (I didnt teach him that). He's the best thing that's ever happened to me and I've enjoyed every minute of being a Mommy!!

I bought a BOB running stroller during the summer and I LOVE IT! One problem...I live in Ohio. It was fantastic until the temperatures hit single digis and there was no way I would drag the little guy out in that weather without risking child services showing up at my door. I finally broke down and got myself a treadmill....I got the Sole F-80 and its been wonderful! I can run downstairs with the baby monitor while Carson is sawing logs upstairs and I find it's much easier to sneak runs in without sacrificing time with my son. I was having a really hard time using my gym membership because I felt like it took too much time away from Carson and kept him in daycare longer.

I'm still enjoying the new house. We are quickly filling up the rooms. It's everything I've ever dreamed of!!

And I picked up a new photography hobby...so you will see lots of fun photos being posted (like the one above). I missed you guys!!! Feels great to be back! Leave a message and let me know what ya'll have been up to!

Glad to hear you like your F80 - I just bought one myself and hope it will be great. Two little guys under two make it tough to get out to the gym! Great photo by the way!
