If you're happy and you know it...

After a rough day yesterday, I decided to give myself a little pick-me-up by looking at the pictures on my phone. They never fail to make me smile. Here are a few examples of why...

Finding pictures I didn't know were even taken.

Seeing the things that are special enough to The Princess that she felt they needed to be documented permanently.

Pink noodles...just for fun.

Pretty much speaks for itself. But it was also race day for me, so just a good day overall.

Capturing moments like these, when my girls don't know I'm watching (and listening).

So many reasons this makes me smile. The sunglasses. Awesome. The Halloween socks with slippers. 100% Bean style. And the bink, which is now gone. It was the last thing keeping her my baby.

There are A LOT of pictures of my little Bean asleep in random places. It's just beyond cute.

And last but not least, this made me smile the day I saw it in a parking lot. My husband drove around so I could jump out and take a picture of it. Just as I was about to take the picture, I realized there were people sitting in the car. It made me jump, and then laugh because I'm sure they thought I was crazy.


  1. awwww!!! love all these so much! your lil girls are so cute and sweet. the last one = NO WORDS!!! laughing hysterically right now!

    and. i want some pink noodles!!!

  2. I need that dinosaur statue in my front yard. It's AWESOME!

  3. I do the same thing. I love looking through my phone pictures. Though, most of mine are of Bungee and not quite as fun as yours.

  4. Your pictures made me smile today too. Thanks!

  5. Very cute set of pics. No wonder they pick you up when you're down!

  6. Love all of the pictures and I love looking back on old memories. Your little kidlets are seriously so adorable. :)

  7. Awe cute picture trail, appreciating the good things in life usually puts me in a better mood too. Love the shot of the car with the " close!" haha

  8. They're not even my kids and I was smiling. I love that you find photos on your phone that you didn't take. It takes you on a tour of their minds.

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

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

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
