Morning my friends!   How’s your week going so far?  It’s been a busy week here and so the days have just zoomed by.  Yesterday was my half day, but I chose to come home and rest.  I haven’t been feeling all that great due to “aunt flo” visiting right now (sorry, too much info) and I also had my braces adjusted a couple of days ago and they used a different wire so there is LOTS of pressure right now.

This mornings workout will be yoga and my ab routine.  I am so glad that I will be able to stretch out…..

I have a full day today at work…. We have this contest going on at work and let me tell ya it’s a tight race!  Has been the entire time.  The grand prize is an extra week off from work!  Hello!  Who couldn’t use that??  So, we are going to be pushing really hard the next couple of weeks.



The lovely Caitlin at Chasing Chels nominated me for the Sunshine Award!




Here’s how it works:


  1. Include the award logo on your blog or in a post
  2. Link to the person that nominated you…..  Caitlin
  3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
  4. Nominate 10 other bloggers to receive the award.  Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs to let them know they have been nominated.


Here are Caitlin’s questions:


  1. What’s the latest book you have read? God Knows My Name by Beth Redman
  2. Who is your role model? I am so blessed to have a group of women around me that I look up to!  I would have to say that my mother and my sister-n-law are probably the ones I look up to the most.
  3. What is your favorite sports team?
  4. How many places have you lived?   I was 6 months old when my parents moved from Mississippi to Arkansas, so I guess two, but I have been in Arkansas so long it would have to be one.  I love Arkansas, but I am not opposed to living somewhere else!
  5. If you got a pet, what kind of animal would it be and what would you name it?  I have one, a cat, and his name is Ghost!
  6. Where is  your favorite place on Earth?  If I am hiking or if I am outside, then I am happy happy happy.
  7. What are the names of three of your favorite blogs?  I check these three first thing in the morning, Hungry Runner Girl, Chasing Chels, and She Reads Truth
  8. What is your favorite pop-tart flavor?  (this should have been question three, but I didn’t want to re-type everything!   Um, I love pop-tarts!!  I think that my favorite is probably chocolate, but I really like cherry too.  I haven’t had one in a very long time though!
  9. What is your favorite dish to cook or bake?  I LOVE to bake…..especially cookies.  My favorite cookie right now is this one
  10. What is your favorite song to run to or work out to?  Right now, it’s Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore!



Here are my questions:


  1. What is your favorite/go-to breakfast?
  2. Do you meal-plan?
  3. What’s your favorite time of the year?
  4. Are you a smoothie fan?  If so, share your favorite recipe!
  5. What show are you currently watching and can’t miss?
  6. What is your favorite passage in the bible?  Share how it’s made a difference in your life?
  7. Coffee or tea?
  8. If you are a runner, how do you take care of your feet??
