We decided to have a low key weekend since I'm feeling a bit under the weather, so Landon took us out to Starbucks.  We're wanting Finn to be able to sleep on the go, so we tote him around during his catnap in the early evenings sometimes.  He has been a pretty mellow fellow for us and I'm so thankful for that!

I am also thankful for my soy cappuccino and my hot date.  We love these times as we get to talk about what's going on in each other's day and what our plans are for the future.
Here's to a relaxing weekend with my boys.


Our sweet little boy is growing so fast!  He's 9 weeks old and already such a little man.  I love him so very much.



So Landon and I are going to get back into running soon.  We're signing up for a few small races to give us some incentive, and I am so excited!  Landon was a bigger runner in high school and college, and I got serious about it during and after college.  My dad is a huge runner and competes in all kinds of races, and I admire him so much.

So to give me even more motivation, I found this awesome story of K.V. Switzer.  You may have heard of her, but I hadn't before today.  She is the first woman to run the Boston marathon as a numbered entry in 1967.  That was 5 years before women were allowed to enter officially.  She was a 20 year old college student who was gutsy enough to enter a race that she was told women were incapable of running.  After running four miles, the race official attempted to stop her, but her boyfriend shoved him out of the way.  Awesome story!  Read more about her here.


Anyway, while we may not be running in the Boston marathon, we are aiming for a few 5k races to start out with and work up from there.  I can't wait to spend time running with Landon and pushing Finn in his stroller!


8 weeks...

Finn will be 8 weeks this weekend.  The time flies and then it doesn't, but I feel like I'm getting to enjoy him every day and not feel rushed.
He is my dearest little baby boy and he makes my heart feel a million times bigger than it ever has.  Being a mama has already made me appreciate life in such a different way.  I am so very happy!


chocolate almond cupcakes...

I spotted a delicious looking recipe on foodgawker today and just had to make it!  The recipe is chocolate lavender cupcakes, and you can get it here.  I didn't have any culinary lavender, so I used almond extract and some almonds as a substitute.  The results were great and curbed my chocolate craving today.
