#13 - Run a 5K

I did it!!
To be perfectly honest with you guys, I really did not think a month ago that I would have crossed this off my list...
I ran my very first 5K!

It may not seem like a lot to most of you but it was a goal that I would have never completed with out a new years resolution. 
I made some pretty poor choices during this race - let me break it down for you:

1. I did not work out one single day for 2 months before the run
2. I did not stretch (baaaaddddd decision!)
3. I did not drink water before running

well, I was running a bit late for the race and should have taken a few extra minutes to AT LEAST stretch. seriously. 

but I did make one great decision....
I took this girl with me :)

we really had a blast and I finished in 40:01 minutes.
not great but not too bad - at least I have a goal to beat next time!

Go out there and make some goals - even if you think you'll never accomplish them, you just might surprise yourself!

((if this isnt a ''thankful'' picture....i dont know what is))

This year I find that I have so much to be thankful for!!! Of course I'm thankful for my lovely house and having the most rock-star husband around, but there are so many other little daily things that I'm thankful for too...

sleeping in on Saturdays
snuggling with Kennedy Buttons
vanilla Tootsie Rolls
Dad's caffine-free sweet tea
starting new projects
writing for GMan
playing tug-o-war with Norah Bones
girl's nights
the wedding
my sewing machine
talking to Mom on the phone
the pictures in our stairwell 
Craig's t-shirts
my little blue mini cooper
my job
upholstery classes
75 degrees in November
taking pictures
dancing with Craig in the kitchen
singing really loud in the car
hot water
cow boy boots
that grunt that K makes when she's exhausted
frozen mango from panera
antique shopping
watching tv with Craigy

I could probably go on and on and on...
but I have dressing to make :)

I hope that you all have a fun and safe holiday spent with loving friends and family.

This past week I've been feverishly trying to get my final holiday articles to my editor, and I have to say: I'm pretty freaking pumped about our next issue! 

If you havent checked out our fall issue yet you can see it here

Sunday Loafing

Today on my endless search to find everything amazing online I came across this adorable vintage shop on etsy, bellalulu.

Every single thing in this shop is perfection for display. 
Maybe Craigy will let me buy the globe - I'm in love!
