Hi! Howdy! Long time no see! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Holy Crap it's 2013! Yes, I sort of dropped off the face of the Earth. Or, at least I appeared to here.

My parents have been visiting, I had my 20-week ultrasound, we had a weekend full of Christmas shopping (!!), soccer, and some general putzing around. Then today, Graham got yucky sick. So, you know, just … Continue reading Halloween is so over . . .

Today it's 27 degrees and more snow is forecast. By the weekend? Who knows. What I do know, is that if you live in an area that … Continue reading Winter-proof your workout
Yesterday I took part in a luncheon/brainstorming session with a great group of Colorado women as part of LiveWell Colorado's LiveWell Moms group. LiveWell is a non-profit dedicated to reducing obesity in Colorado, and LiveWell Moms is an off-shoot of moms (duh) who want to drive healthy change in the community. As moms of young … Continue reading Ladies who lunch
Oh, how I wish this post was all about how Garrett dipped into his hard-nagged earned allowance money and treated me to lunch at saaaayyy, Linger in Denver.
