M Y  F I V E | S U P E R  R A N D O M

1 | my sweet sweet muffin got her four month shots. she handled them MUCH better than she did her two month shots...which was a total relief. 
in other news...she's shooting up on the growth charts. she started in about the 12th percentile for both height and weight and is now well into the 40th percentile. girlfriend isn't shy when it comes to eating. 

2 | if you read my post on potty training kaye, you know i bought a GIANT bag of m+m's for her treat after each successful trip. 
you also know that i quit potty training her and decided to have another go in a few months. 
so what's to happen to that giant bag of m+m's? well...they went right into my mouth. so so many m+m's. so many in fact, i made myself sick during nap time. i was eating them like popcorn. 
3 | i have a favorite product to share! it's a tea made by aveda and it is delicious. tea | thé is what's on the look for that when purchasing. i don't even know how to describe it, so you'll have to try for yourself. just know that i'm not a tea person...but this tea is so yummy, caffeine free, sugar free, and all other good things tea is for you. 

4 | oh good lord. my friend talked me into riding the bike portion of a 70.3 ironman triathlon. it's 50 miles and i haven't sat on my road bike's been at least two years. 
in all my life the longest ride i've ever done was about 40 the idea of doing 50? i really don't know how this is going to shake out. i think it's going to take me the better part of three hours...maybe even four. my booty already hates me. started this week and i have a long way to go. wish me luck!

5 | it's about that time to brag on my farmer - he has both sawyer and kaye this weekend so i can pamper my sister during her 27th week of pregnancy. kelli and i are headed in for massages, facials, and whatever else suits our fancy. i'm nearly positive i'm more excited about this than she is.
okay...linky link time!


  1. That picture with your little girl is so cute! And good luck with the 50 miles!

  2. 50 miles? I'd die. You go girl! You can do it! Enjoy the weekend pampering - I wish I could join in, as at 31 weeks pregnant, some pampering sounds pretty wonderful right now. Sigh. Happy Friday!

  3. Sawyer, you are the cutest leggy thing ever!! Mom, I am going to need you to share those m&ms. 50 mile bike ride?! You can have ALL THE M&MS! Rock star.

  4. 4 months!! How time flies!! Have a great weekend with your fun! Enjoy!

  5. You can totally do 50 miles! You may hate yourself after, but you can do it! ;)

  6. Enjoy the pampering! I am super jealous!

  7. Wow how awesome, good luck with your training!

  8. That is excellent! Sometimes I want to try an Ironman, and then I see one of tv and im like "ummm... no". So, much respect for you. I simple stick with running and still love it. I think the bike portion is really what is keeping me from trying again another triathlon. Since I cracked my tailbone, I can only imagine how it would feel after a long bike ride.

  9. Have so much fun with your sister!!

  10. What a good hubs you have! Have the best time with your sister!

  11. Just found your blog and love it! I'm pregnant with my first right now (we find out the gender TOMORROW!!!!) and I am so happy to find another momma blogger! Happy Friday! :)

  12. First, those little socks on Sawyer are so adorable, I cannot stand it. Second, I have been self-medicating with Peanut Butter M&Ms all week. And finally, 50 miles on a bike would kill me dead.

  13. OMG 50 miles?? You are a rock star for signing up for that! Also I have totally made myself sick eating M&M's before, hasn't everyone? ;) Have a great time with your sister!

  14. Oh man. Tell me about it and the whole potty training experience! My little one will be 4 in June and she refused. Literally would NOT do it. So I gave up for awhile and no lie, she went on her own!

  15. Glad your little sweetie pie did well with shots. Super cute snapshot of you two! Have fun pampering your sister (and yourself ;)) Hope your farmer enjoys his one on one time with the kiddos while you're away. :)

  16. My friend for ages talked about how the Aveda tea was the best thing she had ever had and worth the price tag - I thought she was nuts. How could a beauty line's tea be that good? Yep, I was wrong. That stuff is delicious and now I have about 3 boxes in my house.

  17. Wait 50miles?? No way!! You go girl, I can't spend that much time on a bike. But loving that you only have to do one part of the triathlon....I didn't realize they did that! And yay to sister weekends sans kids!

  18. You go girl!! So proud of you for training on your bike - I was also going to enter the bike leg of our local IronMan but they have cancelled the team event... Someone was watching over me :)
