Monroe is 1 (already?)!

I swear in my head this is still what she looks like. A sweet, tiny, newborn angel. She was and continues to be an answer to my prayers. She is impossible to look at without smiling. Her joy fills every room. I sure do love her and can't believe she's one.
Happy Birthday sweet Monroe!

 At her party this past weekend. She woke up with a teething fever but was so happy the entire party.
 Cousin Jack and Monroe
 This is our unsuccessful attempt at getting a pic of the little cousins.
Dang babies-
So happy

She thought Langston's sunglasses were cooler than any of her gifts.

This is the best pic we could get.

Just a peek at the party set up. We did Pink Lemonade for the theme.
If I ever get back to blogging, I will share more.
I think I can, I think I can (just for you Lisa & Anna).

Weekly Goals

Here goes my attempt at having tangible short term goals that will (hopefully) help me attain my long term goals.
My long term goal involve a beach and a swimsuit and not feeling uncomfortable.
That could be a ways off.
baby steps.
Speaking of babies, mine is almost a year old. They say you can call it "baby weight" until they turn 1, after that, you have to claim it.
I don't want to claim it. I want to lose all this baby weight- from all 3 of my babies- because, honestly I never did inbetween the others.
So, on to this week's goals.

Goal 1:
Try a new "clean" recipe (bonus points if the kids will eat it)
Goal 2:
Log 15 miles this week.
Get a workout in 6 days.
Goal 4:
Drink a TON of water.
Good start for today, I logged 2 miles with my running partner.  

I'm linking up with Operation Skinny Jeans

Kitchen Makeover Follow-up :A new seat on life

Welcome to the transformation of our kitchen.
It's true what they say " The Kitchen is the heart of a home".
For our home that is especially true since we have a very open floorplan. You can see the kitchen from the front door (which I HATE by the way), and it is open to the living room (also not a fan).
Recently repainted- check
now comes new stuff..

these are the old chairs, nothing fancy, original covers that were on there when we bought the table about 7 years ago.

fabric from Hobby Lobby
Our goal was to use only the turquoise design.

So glad my mom and sis were here to help get it done. 

Thanks mom & sis!

I like them ( not love, I  think I'm still not used to the brightness ) I am really nervous about them showing dirt and ick (hello, 3 kids here).
But the color is perfection, so glad I said bye to the dark red.
It's coming along.

Bayou City Classic

The 5K was this past weekend. I'm from a large family, and we represented.

sis in law, sist, sis, sis in law
I truly could not imagine what my life would be like without these two!

And maybe the best part- Keddie did it with us!

Reality check

Reality is the 5K is Saturday.
And because of this sickness that just wont stop, I haven't been able to run in over 3 weeks.
I am getting nervous.
Reality is that I will complete it, just not in the way that I set out to.
But I get to do it with BOTH my sisters.
We are rarely all together since we are so spread out, so I am excited about that part.

Also, Keddie has decided that he wants to run with me
(I think he's concerned about me doing it bc I've been sick for so long).
We will have a good time.

The important thing is that I WILL complete it.
