What makes me smile? My family, my dog Daisy, fishing, 80's music, Packers football, a good cup of coffee...just to name a few!

Running more than blogging...

I ran my first race! It was a 3 mile race call the Yukon Run in White Bear Lake, MN! Or should I say ON White Bear Lake! Yep, actually ran on ice and didn't do too bad a job...32:00 min, tying for 3rd place with my friend Niki in our age category! Now I feel like once I hit the pavement in the spring, it should be no problem! When I first started I did not enjoy running at all but I'm finally getting my breathing more under control so, I'm really starting to enjoy it now! :)
Here is a picture from the finish line:

Also, I have not been blogging much at all and completely missed the ISO Photo Challenge: Vintage, but still wanted to share the photos I recently took of both of my grandparents homes in Eau Claire, WI. Brought back so many incredibly wonderful memories and made me really miss my grandparents, may they rest in peace!

One last thing to share (since I got sucked into the Pinterest world)...I absolutely LOVE this saying:


  1. Awesome job on your first ever 5k! You will definitely be burning rubber on the pavement this summer! Woohoo!!
