What worked for me in 2015

So here is my list of things (both significant and somewhat funny) that worked for me in 2015…

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

Happy Friday! I think we’re about 90% done with Christmas shopping. I almost have all the cards out as well. Things are so much easier than they were last year, and it’s been a lot more fun. KK loves Christmas movies and musicals and so every night it’s been fun to cuddle up on the […]

CrossFit Training Update

After writing my last post, things are really coming together, especially in the last month. It feels like it’s all come on really fast, and I’m sure it’s because I had a nearly two-year hiatus from active training because of pregnancy and my wrist injury. Since it’s been a bit, how about a new CrossFit […]


I can’t believe Thanksgiving is already here! I love short work weeks. Neil and I were off work all today (belated 9-year anniversary date) and tomorrow begins a several days of rotating shifts of eating and lounging. We are splitting time between both our families — so double food and relaxation. Probably should try to […]

Ever need an Internet hiatus?

So last week…was nuts. If you watch the news at all, you probably heard about the events that unfolded at Mizzou (where we live). If you haven’t, here’s the best, most balanced summary I’ve been able to come across. Suffice to say, the whole situation invokes a range of emotions and I find myself quite […]

#RallyforRhyan Weekend

Gosh guys, thanks for bearing with us last week. It was an insane week of Neil prepping for his final race of the season, Nate stopping through on his way to a wedding and the above, an awesome fundraiser for a little girl in our community who was just diagnosed with a pretty rare and […]

What I’m Reading Lately

Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s already the weekend. We’ve had a pretty incredible week here. Kaitlan is WALKING. As in, not just cruising, and doesn’t want to crawl at all anymore. When we got back from the State Fair we were ecstatic that she was free standing and cruising on furniture. And last Friday, […]

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

It’s Labor Day weekend! I feel like there’s a lot going on this weekend. First home football game of the season, last open pool weekend, an Open Gym shift at the gym, and of course, a three-day weekend. So without further adieu, here’s another edition of Friday Link-up and Loving Lately. Aurorae Resistance Bands Oh […]

Training Update

Instagram makes day to day training easy to share, but I thought I’d give you a little bit of long-form version on what I’ve been up to lately. I feel like I’ve hit this place of pure joy with my training that has really been missing for a while. And I owe that to Fringe’s […]
