Coming Up In December

Hey everyone,

Whoa, Indiana got a ton of snow!  I'm hoping that the south thaws out nicely before my butt is running all over Huntsville.

OK... so super exciting stuff is coming in December.  I kind of can't wait.  Here is a sneak peak of posts to come.

Oh yeah, you read that right.  I'm doing a Thirty-One gift card giveaway, JUST in time for Christmas. You best be checking back on that.  I don't have a huge amount of followers, so you actually have a chance at winning this...just, FYI. Click here to start scoping out your next bag.

On the 14th, I will be running the Rocket City Death march Marathon in Huntsville, AL.  Who else will be there? Anyone? I know it's a small race, but it would be awesome to meet some fellow running bloggers.  I will do a full recap with all of the gory details.

As our big move to Peoria nears, I'm slowly starting to mourn the loss of my beloved Trader Joe's.  I've compiled a list of a few must-haves.  Being the Trader Joe's enthusiast that I am, I also want to know what your favorites are too.  Am I missing out on anything?


As far as I know, we should be getting the siding and stone work done on the house as I speak.  Dry wall should be going up as well.  Very exciting stuff (for us at least).  I'll be sharing the latest progress and design decisions.



I've been planning to write this post FOREVER, but I don't even know where to begin.  Ballet was such a huge part of my life, heck, it was my life.  It is so funny that people who know me so well (like my husband) don't know this part of me.  It's my goal to do this post in December.


THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

That's all for now!  Happy Friday!

What are your plans for the weekend?

  4. Emily...I'm loving this post today!!! 1) I had no idea what 31 was...so thank you for sharing! 2) Good luck with your marathon. I was training for one in February but my back halted my training, so now I'll just have to do the half. Be sure to let me know any awesome training secrets you figured out. 2) I grew up on the MI/IN border...about an hour outside of Chicago. I know there are a ton of Trader Joe's around the city AND Peoria is a little over 2 hours from there. Soooo...I know it's not "around the corncer" anymore, but if you ever head toward the city you can stock up there. And 4) I never was/am not a ballerina, but would LOVE LOVE LOVE for you to share your story with us! I admire the ballet so much!

    BTW...if you ever head to Chicago and need some good recs, let me know!!!

  5. LOVE Trader Joe's! They have so many must-haves, how will you choose?! I strongly suggest the Rosemary Raisin crackers. They're to die for and I could easily eat an entire box in one sitting. Have a great weekend!

  12. So excited to read your ballet story! I have been a dancer all my life (it was the majority of my life during highschool and college - minored in it durning undergrad) and it was really hard and a huge transition once I graduated and started working full time and couldn't dance everyday (or even once a week). My friend recently opened up a studio near me, so I can go to classes regularly again, and it feels great! :))

  15. I'm excited for these posts! I have never been to a Trader Joe's. We don't have any around here so I am excited to see what good snacks you can score from there!

    Also, the house is looking amazing so I can wait to see the progress! Very exciting!

  16. Exciting stuff - esp your house! Dude...we just got a Trader Joe's and I never knew what I was missing my whole life! Best wishes for Rocket City - I have friends who are going and I've heard it's a fun race. I'll be doing a half in South Carolina the same weekend!
