Running through life as self-proclaimed house wife, mother, homeschooler, and wanna-be chef

New project; “fixer upper” wanna be!

I am not afraid to admit that Ryan and I are both big fans of “Fixer Upper”.  Chip and Joanna Gaines are the couple we want to be or at least go on a vacation with to Mexico.

Our house has been one project at a time kind of deal and we have moved on to our deck!


I dream of summers spent out on our deck, eating dinner, watching my boys run around the yard and play while Ryan and I drink wine, (well…I would probably get 1/5th of the way through my glass and be buzzing…I’m a cheap date).  

Thankfully I married a handyman and have the luxury of picking out any household project I want and having a master engineer to execute my plan.


Ryan was teaching us about using an augur…a very valuable tool in our world 😉


I don’t know how anyone under 6 feet is supposed to be able to use an augur…thankfully we had Ryan around to handle the big jobs while the boys and I did the cleaning up and running around acting crazy part 😉


Speaking of running around acting crazy….I coached soccer again today!


The boys, “Team Fury”, did great! Bodhi scored his first game goal while Ryan was watching! It was really hard for me not to jump up and down and grab him only to lay a huge smooch on the boy….I had to really practice restraint; I wonder if this is how my family feels when they see me run by in a race? 😉

Other then coaching and re-doing our deck…I’ve been missing my running buddies as both have been either gone or one is recovering from an injury, (which I pray heals quickly! I’m selfishly in need of a good run with her with lots of great conversation).


I ran in paradise for 3/4 of a mile and wished so badly my girls were there with me enjoying the view!


Thankfully, I don’t have to leave my house to be surrounded by beauty….the flowers are really blooming! It smells amazing and I’ve been enjoying the sweet smells while working on our deck and out on a run!


Real quick!

Eating higher fat has been not just good for my body, (however, I never break out and I have been bad lately…I think my body is letting go of some toxins) it’s been tasting oh-so-good! I find my salads having double the avocado and fat has left me so much more satisfied!


Ryan should just quit his day-time job and help me open a cafe….I love making pretty/yummy salads; I wouldn’t mind making it a full-time job.
