8 minutes

At 7:11 pm I told Hugh we had a date night at 8 pm to watch The Walking Dead. I am down to 8 minutes, so this is going to be quick. So far I have spent my 49 minutes walking, hugging Calder for 13 seconds (a bit of bonus time for me) and editing some photos.

I made my goal for the month of January to go on the treadmill 3 times a week and write once a week. I nailed both. (For the record, the last week I only went on the treadmill twice, but our entire house had the puking flu, so I thought that was even above and beyond.)  As for February, I had a man-cold to start the month. I have no idea what that is, but everyone is saying it and I had it BAD. I am still sick, but I am so much better that I am telling people I am healthy. I am back on the treadmill boat for March!

The blogging may be my favorite part of my January goal. I have LOVED pounding away at the keyboard. It really solidifies that I need to write to be my best me. I enjoy it so much. I also need to stay on top of my photos and videos. Tomorrow is March and I will officially be two months behind. It is my goal this week to at least get to being only one month behind.  I am still trying to figure out the best way to manage my time now that I am back to work. I am happy to report that I am starting to get the hang of it.

These may look familiar if you follow me on Instagram, but I had to include a shot of the kiddos.
I was in the computer room on the weekend when I heard Boone chanting, "Look my big boobs!  Look my big boobs!" He has two of Lawson's balls up his shirt. My giggle and request for a photo may result in a repeat performance, but it was totally worth it.
Look at his teeth!  This boy cracks me up.
A smile caught on film! Please ignore my crows feet. They seem really pronounced in this shot! LOL
Happy Monday!

Oops, that was 15 minutes. Gotta go.


  1. I need to have more date nights with hubby.

  2. I read your post a couple of days ago and have been trying to shift my thinking from Logan and I "just" watching TV to thinking of it more as a "date" to watch our favorite show. This is working for me. Lately, I've been feeling like we are just too tired/busy to make an effort to spend quality time together but I am trying to think of our time on the couch as quality time. As we watch our favorite shows we laugh a lot, talk about the characters, plot and how we might react in particular situations. Thank you for reminding me that our time together is what we choose to make of it.

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
