Jack Frosting

I'm really not a slacker with the once a week posts. I am just thinking of you and how busy you must be this time of year wrapping presents, finishing up last minute work projects, spending hours working on your Christmas cards, spending time with friends, shopping for those impossible people, getting together with family to make gingerbread houses ...

Ummm, ok, maybe that is me. But I am going to pretend my once weekly posts are a favor to you anyway.

By the way, there has also been some running in there. Not a ton, but I think I might actually stick to my training plan this week. I had a short run yesterday and there is speedwork on the schedule tomorrow and a longer run later Friday or Saturday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that one to be an outside run. How I love running in the cold!! Seriously.

And now, since I also need to update my family blog while my girls are sleeping, I will wrap with a bullet point list of some of the things that have made me smile lately. Hopefully at least one of them will do the same for you.

  • Getting my Christmas card from Tall Mom Mel. Even the envelope made me smile. Mel has given me a nickname, Runner Barbie, that makes me smile every time I see it. I don't think anyone has ever given me a nickname before (other than Candi when I was younger), and I love it! Even if I am not even close to being a Barbie.

  • Bundling up my girls to play in the snow and watching my little girl go sledding for the first time.

  • Hearing my 3-year-old talk about Jack Frosting.

  • Ordering a cute new hat and arm warmers for running. Pics to come.

And last but not least, you won't have to wait another week to get a new post from me. Due to the postive response the singing runner received, she will be back with a new song tomorrow.


  1. Snow! You have beautiful snow! =)

    Glad you liked the card buddy..

    Wow snow, we might get a snowfall or two this year, who knows??

    Busy busy time, but I am always excited to see a post from you..

  5. Nice photos! Love the four-wheeler in the snow! We haul the kiddos around on big sleds behind ours when we get lots of snow. They love it!

  6. I'm insanely jealous of you having enough snow to go sledding on.


I love your comments! They make my day, so be sure to let me know you stopped by. And I always try to respond to your comments, so let me know if you have any questions for me or if there is anything you want to see on here!
