Things I Love Thursday - A Chance of Snow

I have all sorts of things I'm loving right now.

My baby girl asleep on my lap is one of them. The fact that she is there because she is so congested she sleeps better upright, not so much.

Our new desktop computer is another one. The fact that we finally bought it because our old desktop died a few years ago (yes, you read that right, years) and STILL has a number of photos on it from the first year of The Princess's life on it that were never backed up, not so much.

My back is much, much better is is yet another thing I love. The fact that last Thursday was the last time I ran, not so much.

And toward the top of my love list, the possibility of snow, which means I will have a chance to wear these on my run tomorrow:

Have you figured out my upcoming giveaway yet??


  1. 1. I hope the little one gets to feeling better!!!! :( Poor thing.

    2. I'm only allowing you to get away with saying you're excited about snow (I am SOOOOOOO sick of it) is because you get to rock those sleeves. Uber cuteness. :)

  2. Those are darling!

    My littlest girl kept falling asleep in my lap when my husband was out of town and she was sickly. It made me simultaneously full of sadness for her sickness, and warm fuzzies that I got to enjoy snuggling her while she slept. I hope your little one is better very soon!

  3. Those are great looking! I'm staying tuned...

  4. We had snow this morning but it's gone now.
    Those arm sleeves are really cool!

  5. Hmmmmmmmm? What could it be? Funny enough I haven't run in a week either. Dislike. I'll be staying tuned in for the giveaway!

  6. Those sleeves are begging for a 15K. It helps that your back is cooperating.

    Because computers are so much fun, if you want help recovering those pictures, say the word.
    First year pictures are too much fun. Dozens of consecutive shots just to capture a single toothless smile. Priceless.

  7. Hopefully you can get out there and use those sleeves!

  8. Hey cuz I want some of those toooooooooo. May I say I hope that is your giveaway and I get a chance. Thanks for keeping me inspired on days I want to cough up a lung. We have had those sickies here too and I want it to be gone.

  9. Those are some HOT arm sleeves! I bet you'd go faster just wearing those! I'm glad your back is feeling better! That really stinks not having a good reason for it to hurt. Good luck on your race tomorrow! At least it will be a running day!

  10. CUTE! Love those!! :0) Hope you have a great weekend!

  11. Hope your daughter feels better! Have a good weekend!

  12. I LOVE the cute pink plaid "Britney" 4arms!!

  13. Checked them out and it would have to be the PINK ones!

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
