Five Things Friday

1.  My last two races have made me realize that I’m super competitive with my self.  My 5k time yesterday was 37:12 — nearly 10 minutes longer than my PR!  The entire time we were walking and running, I kept looking at my Garmin and trying not to let it bum me out.  The whole point of yesterday was to just have fun with Adam and Braden, and we did have a lot of fun.  Next time we do a race just for fun, I’m not even going to bother wearing the Garmin, it just stressed me out!

2.  I was talking to a friend yesterday who is a running coach and has run a ton of marathons and after chatting with him I started thinking about running the marathon at Space Coast again.  Why is it so hard to decide?!  He said that knowing me, once I finish my first marathon, I’ll have the marathon bug and want to do more and that six weeks is enough time to recover and run my second one.. and he knows a heck of a lot more about running than I do.  Hmm..

3.  Mackenzie’s 2nd birthday is coming up — we’re doing an Elmo theme and Pinterest has SO many cute ideas.  I kind of wish we were having it at home instead of a kids gym — the kids are going to have a blast there and it will be SO much easier for me, but there is just SO much that I want to do and I can’t do it unless the party is at home.  My bank account (and my husband!) are happy that it’s not at our house, haha!

4.  We had family pictures taken last weekend by Jess with EGD Photography and I am so, so happy with how they turned out.  I’m having a really hard time deciding which ones to order!!  If you’re in the Jax area and looking for someone who is very budget-friendly, great with kids, with quick turn-around, and fabulous pictures — definitely give her a call!

5.  My very first giveaway is over and the winner is.. Elizabeth Luchsinger Trigg!  For her winning entry, she liked Aquaphor on Facebook.  Elizabeth — shoot me an email with your mailing address and we’ll get your prize pack out to you!  If I don’t hear back from her by Monday morning, I’ll pick another winner.

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!  Have a great weekend!


Fall Family Pictures

We did our Christmas card pictures today with my friend Kelly. I had two very uncooperative children.. thankfully she was still able to get a few good shots!

Sneak Peek!

We did family pictures/Mackenzie’s First Year/Braden is 4 (aka, it’s been a while, so get it all!) pictures with my photographer friend, Amanda, of Photography by A. Dennette.

As usual, she did a great job. I can’t wait to get the rest!

Easter Pictures!

I can not get over the cuteness!! We did Easter pictures with Karen of Karen Heiring Photography, she is SO great with the little ones and got so many adorable pictures of our babies with the itty bitty baby chicks and dwarf rabbit.. here’s my favorite:
