my first "cake" walk

This morning I drove south to meet up with my teammates for my first team training walk. There were 8 or so Hello Cupcake team members and a few ladies from another team walking with us. This will be the first of many many miles we will walk together this year.



It was really nice to meet these ladies who'd I'd only chatted online with. I got some good tips on training, fundraising and how to prepare for the walk itself. The 4 miles went by fast and it was fun to meet some brand new best friends :)

5k Fridays

Its a catchy name.
5k Friday :) 
I'm always inspired by Darci ever since I took a class from her at a CKC one year. She's cute, funny and super fun. I read her blog on and off and every time I read it I swear Im going to visit more often, because she's so real, and so inspiring. 
She shared a challenge to get moving and be active. She calls it 5k Fridays.

It could be walking, running, hiking, skiing, biking.... the goal is to simply be active for 3.1 miles.

I need to start doing 4, 5 and 6 mile walks on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays in the next 30 days to prepare for the 3-Day, so 5k Friday is definetly what I need to be doing...as well as 5k Tuesdays and Thrusdays with cross training of some sort on Wednesday.

hello...is it you?

yep. it is.
been gone but now Im back again.
I've got a lot ramblin around in the old brain and realized Ive been holding onto it because I havent written it down yet. Once I write things down, my brain can let them go.
So I plan to be back more often, because I need more room in my brain for new stuff.

so here's some stuff that I've been thinking about lately
These colors...I love them together

and this wall grouping

A bowl of message stones. This will be a fun rainy day project.  I would love to write down quotes I love onto stones and keep a bowl full of them around.

and finally this print. love it.
