Real Snow

Snow has been sparse this season (no complaints!) but we did have a couple inches turn up one day. It looked so pretty outside - view from our second floor out our back window.

Troy was dying to play in it. Cass? Not so much. He kept himself busy for awhile out there though.

I think they like each other a little bit



My Birthday - 33

On my actual birthday, my friend Bonnie was going to come over to work out first thing in the morning but with unseasonably warm temps we took the opportunity to go outside for a little run instead. Oh, what a nice way to start my birthday that was! I couldn't believe we were running outside before dawn on my birthday. That DEFINITELY has never happened! She also gifted me with this sweet sign to hang up. I love it!


I think people know a little bit about my coffee love. Met a friend and fellow coach for coffee while Cass was it preschool...and Mike surprised me at home during his lunch with my favorite Starbucks, too!

Cass made me a beautiful something while at school and couldn't wait to give it to me!


Birthday Shakeology for me, the birthday girl. Cheers!

How dare I...

Found this awesome Nike outfit for Cass and scooped it up, thinking it would be perfect to throw over a leotard or something. But, alas, there is blue in it. "I DON'T WANT TO WEAR ANYTHING WITH BLUE. I ONLY WANT PINK AND PURPLE." Ignore all the hot pink. Go straight for the blue.

Worst. Mom. Ever. Clearly. Yes, they are actual, very real tears. 

Troy's Own Jurassic Park

Troy is collecting some Lego dinosaurs and this is his version of Jurassic Park.

Yes there are skeletons. Because he says, "That's what it would be like if dinosaurs came back and were running around, Mom."

No more nap?

Cassidy went on nap strike for a week or two. (I think we're past it now.) But the days that she wouldn't fall asleep in her room, this was happening. It was confirmation she still needed a nap and I needed to keep trying, and bonus, I got a few extra daytime snuggles, too. 


"What is that?"

Says Troy during the halftime show of the Superbowl... #BigStage #BrightLights #Gaga
