This weekend, Colton figured out how to suck his toes. I couldn't resist a picture of it because it was SO CUTE.

This is Colton at a play date/picnic to the park! We had so much fun :)

Also. I want to become a runner. Do ya'll know I hate running? Because really. I do. I have been off-and-on trying to run consistently since January. But I think NOW is the time to stop making excuses like: "i don't like the weather" -- "playing with Colton is enough exercise" -- "i just don't feel like it" etc. etc. etc. So here we go! I started yesterday, and ran around my neighborhood and the one next to me. I didn't even have to take Colton and the jogging stroller since Daddy was home to keep him! :) Maybe today I can make it the WHOLE WAY without any little stops. Stay tuned to cheer me on with my quest to become a runner! Wouldn't it be fun for Brad and I to start doing 5ks and 10ks together? I am not too scared of the 5k. I know I can get there pretty quickly, but that 10k really scares me. So much so that I won't even let us THINK about entering one until I know that it will be possible for me. :)

Dear friends. How do YOU stay fit? Any suggestions for me? Are you a success story of someone who used to hate running and now you love it? Or have you found something else you love to do that keeps you fit? Or have you given up on it? Decided you are active enough without forced exercise? I really wanna know! :)


  1. Way to go on the running! I too, hate running. I have done the C25K halfway about 3 times, but never get farther than that. Right now I am doing Jazzercize. So fun! Love your blog!

  2. Oh! And the stroller is the UppaBaby Vista and in that pic the rumble seat is attached. WE LOVE IT! It's pricey, but we have said over and over again how glad we are that we splurged. I was obsessed with stroller research for awhile!

  3. I too want to start running! Although I haven't been able to because of my hip issue from pregnancy/childbirth. BUT, I am cleared to I am going to! We can root one another on...I am entering a 5K on the 4th of July!

  4. yeah for you!! I am pretending to run, I even got out 2 times last week! Too bad we don't live closer, we could run together :(. But, I will settle for encouraging you from afar. YOU'RE A ROCK STAR, you will be running the 10k before you know it!!!

  5. I started running again last summer and lost 20lbs in 3 months. HOWEVER, I started doing Yoga, and I'm noticing more results in less time! I was shocked at first, but I totally believe celebrities when they say that they just do yoga! Good luck Lady!! I'm sure Brad would love to have another activity to do with his beautiful wife! -Brittney
