A Shopping Bonanza


Shopping was a success!

Ben and I braved the crowds and cold to hit up not one, but two malls – AND a shoe store. What a husband I have, huh? Here’s the booty:

Hasta la vista!

A Lovely Cheese Pizza, Just For Me


Today I pulled the classic Home Alone move (Lord I love that movie!) Approximately 30 minutes after I was supposed  to wake up, I  sat straight up and said, “I slept in!” Morning workout = no go. That’s ok though, I’m taking a half day today so I’ll work out…

Starting with Sprints


Good morning – and happy Monday to you! I was actually up and running (literally!) this morning! My alarm went off at 5am and after a brief hesitation, I hopped out of bed and headed to the gym. :) For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been doing my 45…
