work it out.

so... i'm pretty proud of myself my husband & i...

husband always looks nice & fit -- he's one of those guys who is naturally cut & even though he eats terrible, will probably be thin forever... me? well...yeah...

um, while i can keep up with him in the eating realm (love my food), i can't keep up with staying fit & thin without much effort... bummer.

BUT... lately we have been being more excersize-consious...

nike workouts

and a few days ago we really started running.

this picture is OLD. but it's the only one i had before a run to go with the 'theme'... :) 

i hate it. i have always hated it. even when i was in shape...that's guessed it... i hated it.
loathe is maybe a more appropriate word.

so, we ventured off the other night... he always says, 'ill follow your lead'. but me? i'm too lazy not motivated...not excited is maybe a better way to put it... & if we followed my lead, we'd be turned around cuddling on the coach.

so, we'll follow his lead. we're both not in the best shape, but he does basketball every week & is in better shape than me for sure. i would venture to say we're both naturally atheletes, so it's not that i can't run; i just... HATE IT. and believe me when i tell you, reminding myself how much i've hated it all these years has not helped my attitude for it... but we're working on changing that!

so... i followed his lead... from our apartment down to the kum'n'go & then walked home...

when we got home & decided to see how far it was... maybe half mile?

nope... .9 MILES WHICH MEANS ALMOST A WHOLE MILE! this may not seem that much but beings i haven't done it for, oh, i don't know... like 5 years... it is HUGE! i was pumped!

and guess what? we've went like 3+ different nights & are almost to two miles! BAM.

so proud. now...about those extra pounds...when do they come off? :)
(ps, just let me say that while i am trying to get into better shape, i am also working on contentment... i am content with what the good Lord blessed me with while simultaneously trying to be better. he has gifted adam & myself with so much... so thankful to even have legs to be running on!)


happy running,

we've realized it's pretty darn fast to run there & back... also, it's beginning to become part of the 'daily routine'. it's so fast you almost feel bad not doing that little bit of good for the day! it feels good to breath hard & sweat a bit -- almost a bit addicting, perhaps? eh, well... maybe not :)

i was chatting with a coworker -- she's training for a 22 mile marathon -- YIKES! but she was very VERY encouraging & you do have to start small! :)

another coworker gets up every morning & runs 5 miles -- i might start running in the a.m. for a couple reasons...

***i'll start the day off with God's beautiful creations around me -- i've heard that puts you in a great mood for the day -- fresh air & nature***

***it'll be done for the day :)***

***i can eat, if i'm hungry, when i get home. right now i don't because when we run, i feel sick with that food in there***

super mario eggs...

...for your next easter egg hunt, perhaps?
amazing, eh? someone has some talent!

on youtube comments.

...or any rude/mean/silly comments...
enjoy your day! :)

because i love harry potter...

you're going to get a post about all these 'peeps' (as the cool kiddos call 'em) today!
wish i was sitting in a wooden room on mopeds that didn't work with these cool cats.
why yes, hunnie... we WILL have out child dressing like this someday. :)
in addition to sitting on non-working mopeds, i would like to sit in a random kitchen (complete with empty drawers) with these cool cats...
awesomeness. i would wear all of these outfits. even the boys. minus the boys shoes. BAM.
the above picture is probably one of my favorites. i absolutely adore how they say their favorite lines. and it's so funny that i can place almost every single line.... they seriously crack me up. my favorite? i don't know, maybe, "morning", because that's such an ackward moment -- i know, i'm a nerd.
what's your favorite line?
the only think that would make this better? seeing their reasoning behind their favorite line!

free air guitar!

this little ditty makes me laugh.
happy monday afternoon! :)


have a laugh at my expense.

wanna see a cutie who got some cute earrings from JACIELAND?
to check out her blog, Vintage Flights of Fancy, go HERE.


It is beginning to storm outside my window right now, and it makes me feel so peaceful and contemplative.
As I hear the thunder rolling, I think perhaps I lived another lifetime in drizzly London. I love the gloom.

New earrings from Etsy…

Dear booger.



You're a falling star, You're the get away car.

You're the line in the sand when I go too far.

You're the swimming pool, on an August day.

And you're the perfect thing to say.


And you play it coy, but it's kinda cute.

Ah, When you smile at me you know exactly what you do.

Baby don't pretend, that you don't know it's true.

Cause you can see it when I look at you.


And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times

It's you, it's you, You make me sing.

You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.


You're a carousel, you're a wishing well,

And you light me up, when you ring my bell.

You're a mystery, you're from outer space,

You're every minute of my everyday.


And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man,

And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.

Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,

And you know that's what our love can do.


And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times

It's you, it's you, You make me sing

You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.


So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La

So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La


And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times

It's you, it's you, You make me sing.

You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

You're every song, and I sing along.

'Cause you're my everything.

Yeah, yeah


So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La

So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La



Love you booger.

God is good, isn't he?

i have been feeling overwhelmed, YET OVERJOYED with all the etsy sales i have been receiving lately... 

just thought i would share a little bit of excitement that i've had in my little world...

doesn't really seem like too long ago when i was asking for your support to get 100 sales! actually it was july 20! so within a couple of months, i've finished school, started a new job & am getting more & more etsy sales. 

i appreciate your prayers. God is good. and He will provide.

i am ook for ideas to help out my brother! he has an amazing opportunity to get a hold of some old stressed barn wood & is looking for some good ideas! he's SO amazing with woodwork and i need YOUR help for more ideas! here's what i have so far, but if you think of anything, know of anything, find any good ideas on pinterest, Facebook, twitter, or whatever else all the 'cool kids' are using,! :)

many ideas via

cute bench!

USA pride -- love it!

i love all these primitive ideas, don't you!?

so cute & prim.

this clock is amazing.

very modern & chic divider!

i LOVE this, but don't know what colors i'd use for my apt! cute piece of decor though, right?

and i really like this one, too! very beachy... maybe for our beach house someday! :)

cowboy up!

happy almost-humpday!


on a much lighter note, i'm about ready to go to bed & just thought i'd wish you all a happy early 'hump-day'. i am SO excited for it to be wednesday. the work week is ALMOST over -- YIPPEE! 

tomorrow i start my 'sharing the faith' Bible study... adam had a "courageous" men's Bible study (based on the movie) & i had started the 'sharing the faith' one the same night he started his, but only 2 people showed up, so we postponed the one i'm in until now... i'm not necessarily super excited to go, almost entirely because coming home to sleep on my couch sounds so nice... but i know that this is something that i need to do... it WILL be beneficial and i need it... my evangelism skills need some work, for sheezy! i'll keep you posted!

happy wednesday tomorrow!

xxoo, j
