Akron Marathon Recap

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

We did it! Cumulative chip time of 5 hours, 5 minutes, and 59 seconds, and we all completed our portions faster than we thought we would! It was pretty awesome to not only finish, but to surpass our own expectation. I was really starting to freak out last week… I’d been sick with a cold [...]

State of the Hazel Eyeballs

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

Woah! Guess who has contacts after 26 years of wearing glasses every single day of her life? I can’t even express how weird it is. I went to my yearly eye exam last Friday and on a complete and utter whim decided to ask about contact lenses. My fifteen-year-old-looking optometrist cheerfully informed me that we [...]

Review: Pillars of the Earth by K. Follett

By in Main, Reading

The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett My rating: 4 of 5 stars Wow. Four stars instead of five because I feel a bit worn out from the stress of the almost constant struggling of every single character, and the intense description of cathedral construction was a bit much at times, but it was [...]

State of the Union: Running

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

Here’s a final shot from the last race I did on July 5th. Jessica (right) did the 5-mile and I did the 2-mile and we both had to do some walking because it was over 90 degrees at 8 freaking a.m., but I was really happy with finishing at all. Later though, last Thursday actually, [...]

State of the Union: Running

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

So, I had planned to blog about my second 5k race a week ago, the Jackson Night Glow 5K, but it just didn’t go well and I think I blocked it from my mind after last weekend. I had wanted it to be my first ALL running 5k and it just didn’t happen after I [...]

Luigi’s Last Name is Not Parasson

By in Main

So, today was… a day. I started off by twisting my hair up into the usual “I don’t want to fully blowdry my hair because it’s already hot and I’m barely motivated to go to work” bun, only to realize 15 minutes into running around the hospital that I had a huge chunk of hair [...]

Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

By in Main, Reading

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon My rating: 4 of 5 stars I grabbed this book for my iPad a while back because a few people that I trust in their smutty book taste had rated it highly and I wanted to venture outside my normal handful of authors. The book is SO not a smut book, [...]

Re-Vavooming the Red

By in Main, Pictures

Amy came over tonight and helped me color my hairs back to their fiery red shade. It faded pretty quickly last time so I’m taking care to preserve the color as long as possible, because I LOVE being a red head. :)

Are you ready to see the fruits of our hard labor throughout the month of May? Here’s a grand tour of our front and back yards just before our Memorial Day cookout. :) It rained overnight and blew some leaves and whatnot into the new mulch, but it still looked great and we’re really proud [...]

First Ever 5K… CHECK.

By in Main, Pictures

This past Monday, on Memorial Day, I ran my first ever 5K. It was rough (damn that kid who gave me my race packet and told me the course was “pretty easy, mostly downhill”), I had to walk twice due to a couple of seriously daunting inclines, I saw stars when I crossed the finish [...]

Air Plants

By in Main, Pictures

I’m really loving my air plants (tillandsia). Anyone else an air plant lover? If you’ve never heard of them, they’re incredibly easy to manage, cheap to buy (tons of them on Etsy), and I think they’re beautiful. No roots, no soil, just some sunlight and weekly water soaking. You can glue them to just about [...]

Man, oh man, has it ever been a productive weekend! I’ve planted the second raised garden bed with marigolds, herbs and onions, the first raised bed is full of veggies (peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, two kinds of lettuce). We’ve spread seven cubic feet of mulch throughout all of the beds (which looks BEAUTIFUL), cleaned off the [...]

Succulent Bonzai

By in Main, Pictures

I keep forgetting to post the shots of my fun bonzai succulent… check it out! I purchased it from The Succulent Garden on Etsy, and I initially over-watered it unintentionally, but it’s drying back up to a happy state of affairs. :) I love all the red-tinged succulent noodles… I’m such a succulent junkie. :) [...]

$2 Check for Pickles

By in Main, Pictures, Videos

Any of you long time reader/followers remember the day I wrote Jim a $2.00 check for pickles? That was in July of 2007 (I can’t believe it was that long ago), and I would like to submit evidence that the $2.00 check is STILL on our fridge, although now it’s a different fridge in a [...]
