Macklemore Half Challenge

While Scott was gone, I needed to do "stuff" with Susanna, so I created a Macklemore Half Challenge a la (with changes) the Unofficial one from John and Sherry at Young House Love.  We had a blast!

Susanna is already in love with this $1 great find!

We did, however, pass on the skis.  

When it was all said and done, we spent $8.50 out of our $10.

Oh and during the weekend, I learned a lot.

A Birthday Hike & A Perfect Moment

Utah was in the mid-60's on my recent birthday, so we hiked in those beloved Wasatach Mountains.  Susanna did amazing and slept for most of it!

Then something else unbelievable happened- a moment like no other.  It was perfection!

I'm so grateful for these moments... and all of them that make up my beautiful life!

Four Meals-One Week

Scott and I went on a cooking frenzy last week, sampling new meals galore.  For 4 meals we spent a bit under $8.  We had the majority of the ingredients on hand.

It's all detailed here- including pretty pictures.  Oh, and all of the meals were a yummy tasty success including one before Scott's first race in a long time- the Buffalo Run on Antelope Island.

More details about that race are coming soon.  In short- amazing. phenomenal people. tough hills. freezing. beautiful. Utah.

Love and Peace!

TBI and Parenting

Ever wonder what it's like to parent with someone that has a TBI?  I wasn't sure how it would work, and so far, I've learned a lot.  I'm thankful that Scott is who he is, and there's more here.

Wishing you all of the best.

26.2 Sonnets for Runners

Reading is good for the soul, especially when it inspires us or makes us feel comfortable.

26.2 Sonnets for Runners does just that for me.  Maybe I'll run another 26.2 or just the .2.  Quantifying aside, I'll just run.  When the trail are more snow-and-ice free it'll be a bit easier, too!

What are you running and reading lately?

Happy Monday!
