"All Things"

An adoptive mom who loves Christ, family, running, fitness, and all things health related.

Feel the Freedom

Like any kid, I always anticipated the last day of school.  I loved handing in all my books, cleaning out my locker, and entering into a summer of adventure and fun.  On the last day of school, my mom would always pick us up and take us out to lunch to celebrate. As we pulled out of the school parking lot in our big red van, we would all throw our hands in the air and proclaim:


It. was. glorious.

One of my top 5 memories as a kid.

Today, at approximately 3:45 pm, as I was pulling out of my parking spot at work, I found myself I repeating this ritual.

Although it’s not summer, I have off for the next 9 days for spring break.  To say I am excited would be the understatement of the year.

9 days.


Becoming a teacher was a great idea 😉


Brian and I had to go out and run some errands last night, so I had to make a quick dinner after my run. I decided on one of my favorites, breakfast for dinner.


This was a veggie omelet that turned into more of a veggie scramble, but was still delicious!!

This morning I was in the mood to do something more than just 1 mile.  So, after my mile I put in Jillian Michael’s 6 pack ab workout and did the advanced level.  I {heart} Jillian.  She is seriously awesome. I wish she could be my personal trainer and bff.

After my workout I was starving, so I made one of my favorite breakfasts: pumpkin oatmeal with berries.

ImageWho am I kidding by saying this is “one of my favorites?”  It is hands-down my favorite breakfast, and I eat it nearly every morning.  Please tell me it is normal to eat breakfast at my vanity while I do my make up.

Beeker just told me that there is going to be a snow storm Sunday- Monday, with 3-5 inches of snow expected. I am countering the impending storm with my new spring decor.


Sunflowers= spring.

I am planning an early bed time tonight- I have 9 miles on the books and plan on being out the door by 6:15 am.  Tomorrow will be a great day because I get to hang out with this girl all day:


My heart.

A Holly & Aunt Heidi date day = perfection.

How did you celebrate the beginning of summer as a kid?

Are you ready for Spring? (duh).

  1. I really miss the excitement that used to come with the last day of school. It was always the most anticipated day of the year for me, filled with possibilities and happiness. We would always go out to eat with friends on that day as a kid.
