I have written a few posts in the past about my issues with the scale.  For years I would weigh myself every single day of my life and the number that popped up would determine how I felt about myself that day.  Not a fun way to live right?!?  Over two years ago I wrote about my decision to stop weighing myself. That was one of my best ideas ever.  I stopped the obsession with the number on that little […]

We got to San Francisco just in time to park the car and walk over to a restaurant in the Mission District for lunch.   Brooke absolutely loves sitting in high chairs. We went to a restaurant called Chow for the best pasta dish I have ever had.  Billy and I decided to get two things and split them. I could eat the sauce on this pasta like soup it was so good and the salmon was perfect. We also […]

Good fish n chips are more than worth the hour drive there. Before we sat down for fish fillets battered and deep fried in goodness we hiked down to the most beautiful beach that I have ever […]

8 miles on the running trail. My hamstrings are still on fire and when I am running up a hill with that thing I feel like I am running a 5:39 mile. We averaged about an 8:03 pace. It was a good run. I wanted to talk about blogging today because clearly I am an expert (please note that is a whole lot of sarcasm. My usual blog posts contain pictures of candy, babies and my treadmill so instead of […]

It all happened so fast but now I can’t imagine having to wait any longer to have Brooke in my life… thanks for coming early. The first morning (Tuesday) I was in cali I started having small contractions but I just thought they were nothing and that they wouldn’t stay consistent.  I was so very wrong.  I went to do errands, treated myself to lunch and when I got back to our friends house I knew something was up.  The […]
