The Ultimate Coffee Date November

How on earth can it be November already?  I know this is cliche, but as I get older the time really does go by faster.  I really notice it with the kids.  They are growing up and I have been finding myself wanting to turn the clock back.  I have digressed, let me get back to the start … Happy Saturday and welcome to another #UltimateCoffeeDate with myself and co-hosts Deborah and Coco.  I love stopping each month and taking a long weekend to go over your links and comments.  It is a nice way to slow down and re-group, re-connect or connect with new bloggers. ♥ If we were having coffee, I would chat on  about how my kids are growing too fast.  I know, they have to and I am so super proud of all of them.  I just want to stop and slow down.  Is it because…  Read More…

November Smoothies and Puritan’s Pride Giveaway

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Wow, what a fast month this was.  Are we really just a month away from Christmas and then we head into 2015?  With all the busy and running around the end of the year, I want to stay as healthy as I can and keep my body running both inside and out.  We are eating some pretty heavy foods and we are dabbling and nibbling here and there.  Sooner or later, it will catch up with us.  Staying energized and bloat free is what I am hoping to do.  I can with the help of Puritan’s Pride.  Yep, it is time again for ANOTHER awesome giveaway.  Recap, I am working along side Puritan’s Pride and Fit Approach for three months with their smoothie challenge.

Hello November

I loved waking this morning to the cool air coming through the window.  No rain today, but a fall chill with just the right amount of sun {California weather}.  It’s Sunday and the first weekend of November is here.  My favorite time of year is now starting.  We are done with October, Halloween is over.  In my mind, this is the start of Fall.  The kids are starting to sleep in a bit longer on the weekends, even the dog stays snuggled up.  I am taking in the quiet while lying in bed, because I know that once my feet hit the floor, it will be a very busy morning … I have plans and they include work and a to do list with the hubby. I don’t know if it is the time of year or what,  but moving a bit slower and taking more time to get things…  Read More…

My Emotional Turkey Trot

This past weekend was rather special as I was able to run the First Annual Napa Valley Turkey Trot 5k event which supported the Salvation Army.  I was very pleased to have been given two race tickets {one for Miss Faith and myself}. The morning started out a bit chilly, but amazing for a November day in the wine country.  This particular day was special as we went as a family.  My hubby and son watching and cheering us on, while I was able to run with our daughter.  Faith and I have done a Color Run together, but this was different.  There was a special “something” about this run with her.  Maybe it was because it was her first timed race with me, maybe it was watching her excitement as we got close to the start time, maybe it was her telling me to “keep up” and not slow…  Read More…
