I didn't spend today with my family. I wasn't treated to breakfast in bed, flowers, or cards. Instead, I woke up at 3 am alone and prepared to run 13.1 miles to complete a dream goal. A dream goal I thought was unattainable. A dream goal that would require sacrifice from not only me but my family as well. Today, my dream goal became a reality. It was hard fought. At mile five my foot landed funny on a manhole and turned with sounds of pops and cracks. But I pressed on (it's not swollen, by the way. It's fine.). Then later, my feet and calves cramped up. Of course the one time I forget to bring a mustard packet. The runner community is an amazing one though. A call was put out for salt, and someone came to my aid with a salt packet, while we continued moving forward. Powerade became my drink with a little water to replace what my body had lost. What started out with ease became a battle, but a battle that would be won. Not only did I run this race to achieve my dream goal, I ran it to support Make-a-Wish Foundation through the WDW Radio Running Team. I also ran the Princess Half in February and the Tinkerbell Half today to show my kids that dreams are possible. They may be hard fought and require sacrifice, but those unattainable dreams are attainable. Dream Big. Dreams are possible.
When in his house, one has to #meetthemouse . While #waltdisneyworld feels like home, it's been fun to explore #disneyland . It's almost like a parallel universe where everything is familiar but different. I can't wait to come back with the kids.
I made it to #california ! Loved spending time with Kayse from @intentionalmoms and her kids this afternoon. While I started #beautyinthemess as a way to supplement our income, the blessing hasn't just come financially. The friendships I've made over these years of blogging have been such a blessing. ❤#momblog #momblogger#surprisedbymotherhood#friends
AD: Oh the dirt. For a recent birthday, the kids got a #gardening set that included dirt. It was only three pucks of dirt, but those pucks expanded to fill the container. Awesome until the littlest decided she wanted to try her hand at gardening. All over the back porch. So when the sun came out after several dreary days, we headed to the back porch to sweep in my @flirtyaprons . The littlest, while the biggest mess maker, is also my best helper. #talesofmotherhood#momblogger#coloradoblogger#momblog#surprisedbymotherhood
This whole transitioning to a #biggirlbed is for the birds. I vaguely remember it being hard to keep the others in their beds. They didn't rummage through the pantry and refrigerator while we slept though. 😣 She looks super sweet and innocent 😇 but don't let her looks fool you. She is both #sugarandspice , emphasis on the spicy 🌶. 😂 #babygirl#surprisedbymotherhood
