Motivational Monday: Here’s Hoping I Don’t Die

I am back in the saddle again.  Well mostly.  Trying to get back in the swing of blog writing.  I have missed it so much but at the same time I have become suddenly overwhelmed.  I’ll find a balance again.  It’s going to take some time to figure that out with all the other things going on with my life. Remember a few months back when I announced that my Declare It Day goal was to run a Ragnar Relay race?  And remember how I decided...

  Can it be?  Is it really?  Yep it’s a new blog post.  I took some time off to move my blog from one hosting site to another and to just relax for a little bit.  I love writing, but sometimes you just need a little hiatus.

Unique Father’s Day Gift Review & Giveaway

I hope everyone had an amazing Mother’s Day.  Mine was a little unconventional as I slept all day due to work.  Baby Daddy and Rhino were back in Wichita due to a death in the family so it was me and the fur babies lounging in bed.  Now that mother’s day is over it’s time to start thinking about what to do for Father’s Day.  I have a unique and fun idea.  Why not get that special man in your life a personalized coupon...

Enter to Win a Mommy is Awesome Prize Pack

Back in January I talked about meeting a woman named Tori and learning all about the company she help co-found called Fellow Flowers.  I was a girl on a mission to start running again and her story as well as the story of other women she has met along the way inspired me.  The next day I went to the Rock and Roll Marathon Expo and purchased my first 2 Fellow Flowers shirts and matching flowers and I have been hooked ever since.

It’s Almost Summer *Sigh

Not many people sigh when signs and sounds signal that summer is near.  That is, unless you live in the desert.  Living in Phoenix takes a hardy breed.  Don’t get me wrong, I moved here by choice and knew what I was getting myself in to with the heat in the summer.  The gorgeous weather of winter tends to give us amnesia about how hot the summers can get.  My Christmas Day in Phoenix was filled with cooking outside on our smokers and...
