Girl, Where You Been?

Hey all,

Wow, it has been a little over a week since I last posted.  I know... to the 3 people who read this, you're really upset.   Actually, I've been super boring lately.  With the frigid weather, I have little motivation to be productive and have been spending more time on the couch than I'd like to admit.  Besides sitting on my butt, here is what I've been up to:
*I kind of hate taking selfies, but that's what you're supposed to do when you're a blogger, right?
I have been having some pretty good workouts lately.  Apparently, about four weeks was what I needed to fully recover from my marathon.  One day last week, we had a "heat wave" of temps in the mid 30's.  I wasted no time getting out there and going for a run in the snow.  This was my first run ever in the snow, and my feet were slipping all over the place, but it was SO nice to be out there.  My feet were soaked, but I didn't care.  I was just lucky to not be on the treadmill.

When I absolutely have to workout indoors, I've been doing weights classes once a week and running on the treadmill, but playing with the incline.  It makes running in a stuffy gym mildly more tolerable.

We're making some serious progress on the house.  The cabinets have been installed, and flooring completed.  They should have the trim nearly done and the final paint colors on.  I believe that next week the granite will be installed, so that's super exciting!  I can't wait to see it in person.

We're currently in the middle of designing our master closet.  We're going to use dark wood, and hopefully it will look somewhat similar to this.  There isn't room for an island, but we are having a peninsula....and that means, doing my favorite thing ever....picking out more granite!

Seriously, I love granite.

That's all I have for today, but before I go, I want to remind you all that February 3rd is the date for Kylie and I's February Favorite Things Linkup.

I should also mention that the 3rd is my birthday, and nothing would make me happier than all of you linking up.


  1. I'm going to link up! I have my post all ready. But more importantly... OMG your master closet! Aka a room that's larger than my entire apartment! Holy crapola.

  2. I was wondering where you've been! Your house is coming along great! I'm super jealous of that closet already. You know I'll be linking up!

  3. Unless you're Kim Kardashian - selfies will always be unnatural!! Can't wait to see how the closet turns out!! It's going to be great!

  4. So much closet envy!! And I also hate taking selfies (SO awkward!!) and avoid it as much as I can!

  5. I want to live in your closet. Loving the cabinets too! I will be totally linking up! :)

  6. One of my favorite link ups...can't wait. Okay so seriously I would die for your closet, so jealous!! So speaking of inclines on the treadmill I found this blog called Beat of My Own Run, she has some great tread workouts. You might like one of these.

  7. The house is looking absolutely gorgeous already! The closet is so much fun to design. I wished we could have put an island in ours too, but we didn't have room. I'm hoping to find some type of pretty bench or something we could place in there to put our shoes on at least! Stay warm darlin'

  8. Glad to know you're alive. LOL I was wondering if the house was done and you were moving in.
    Glad you could get out of the gym and head outdoors.

  9. I have some treadmill workouts that I'd love to share with you that makes running on the treadmill more tolerable! They are actually kind of fun if you enjoy running!
