Avoiding Boredom on the Treadmill

When I first started running last year I spent most of my early runs on the treadmill. I didn’t think I would make it very far and liked the comfort of being able to stop when I wanted to. Over the summer I spent the entire summer running outside. On the rare occasion that it […]


Jersey Boys

When you’ve written enough hit songs to score a musical 40 years later, you know you have left your mark on history. Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Spanning four decades the just under 3 hour musical shows fans how the group was formed, how the group fell apart […]


Broken by Kelly Elliott

I’m always on the hunt for a quick and mindless read which is why I tend to pickup cheap or free Kindle books from time to time. Back in December Broken by Kelly Elliott popped up so I saved it for a quick read someday. I wasn’t feeling like picking up anything complicated last week […]


Flavored Water Friday

I am a lucky mommy and my little man (heavily assisted by my wonderful husband) bought me a Infusion Water Bottle for Mother’s Day. I’ve made flavored water here and there in the past but usually die out after one big pitcher of it because I get lazy and don’t go buy more fruits after […]


That Time I Became a Runner

It’s throwback Thursday so why not throw it back and get a little personal. Growing up my mom was a runner. She ran races and my dad and I often went to watch. I remember going with and watching but I had no desire to run no matter how hard my mom tried to get […]


Summer Clothes For Toddler Boys

Overalls | Shirt | Shorts | Summer Baseball PJs If there is one thing I have struggled with as a boy mom it is finding clothes for a toddler boy that fit and fit comfortably for his active lifestyle. I’ve had tons of discussions with friends most of which have girls about how lucky they […]


It’s Not About Perfect by Shannon Miller

Dominique Moceanu, Dominique Dawes, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden, Kerri Strug, Jaycie Phelps & Shannon Miller tumbled, danced and vaulted their way into living rooms […]

Biggest Loser Run Walk

Biggest Loser Run/Walk Crown Point 5k (And Half Marathon)

Last Sunday I participated in the Inaugural Biggest Loser Run/Walk 5k and Half Marathon in Crown Point Indiana. Just a week out of the Glass City Half Marathon I decided to stick with the 5k and just have a good time. One thing I noticed from the second I walked in is that a lot […]


Summer Workout Clothes

There is no question that I am far from fashionable. I’ve always been drawn towards comfy vs. in-style and I am often laughed at when having conversations with co-workers about fashion. Sweats have always been my favorite and in the last year I discovered the comfort of active wear there has been no going back. […]
