Checking in with Blogiversary winners and winter break updates!

Whoops I didn’t mean to disappear on you for the last week.  Things have been busy… well sort of.  We did hit up the Wisconsin Dells last week for a few days!  Sara has a blast!


We enjoyed lots of family time tons of Monopoly Junior and loads of laughs!

I’ve been spending the early mornings cleaning!  My kitchen has never been more organized and clean!  From freezers, to the pantry to the cabinets and drawers, I seem to find my need to clean before 8am!!  I’m HOPING that when I go back to the doctor on Friday I get the OK to resume some exercise.  It’s been just  a week since I was told to lay off due to contractions and I miss it!  Thankfully, the contractions have stopped and all seems normal again!

When I’m not cleaning or doing fun family things there are a probably two places you can find me!

Feet up on the couch napping or just taking a minute or hour to relax and…


Feet up on the couch and watching….


There has been a whole lot of time spent this break with my feet up!  It’s hard because I am so used to going going going but I don’t have the stamina to do it.

Confession….House of Cards is probably the main reason that I haven’t been blogging!  The Hubs an I are done with season 1 and just started season 2!!  We put Sara to bed and watching a couple of episodes!  It’s so good!  That Frank Underwood is crazy!!!


I can’t believe today is the last day of 2014! What a year it has been!  I certainly didn’t reach or achieve all of my running goals for the year but with good reason!  I am already starting to think about post baby races and getting back out there!

2015 is sure to be better then ever!!!  It’s hard to believe that we are getting so close to adding another family member to our family!  We’ve waited so long for this and it will be here before we know it!  Until then, we are enjoying our time as a family of three before the craziness starts all over!

The Hubs and I have been gifted with another date night and are seeing a movie this afternoon and going to dinner with friends!  Thanks mom and dad!!  I have no intensions of making it to midnight unless its on one of my many trips to the bathroom. I don’t remember the last time I made it till midnight on NYE.  Do you stay up?

What are you doing to ring in 2015?

    Happy New Year Laura! Looks like you’ve been enjoying the break. The teenager is going to a sleepover tonight and the rest of us will order in and Thing 2 and I will try to stay up. The Caveman never makes it. Haha!

  3. Happy new year. We’re having a nice quiet evening at home, which will be a nice change from all the traveling and family craziness from Christmas.

    House of Cards is one of my favorite shows! It’s hard not to binge watch it. I am looking forward to Season 3 in February. Frank is mad genius!
    Happy New Year to you and your family!
