"Conversations" Link Up with Knock on Wood

The lovely Amanda from Knock on Wood Blog is having me as a Co-Host for her Conversations Link-Up! If you don't know Amanda, definitely go check her out and say "hello!". She's awesome!

The conversation I'm sharing today is one that made me laugh. I was texting with my dad about coming to visit for Father's Day weekend, and asking if he minded me bringing Piper the Puppy with me since Spencer would be out of town.

Motivation and Accountability: My 1st Half Marathon

Hey, strangers! Long time no talk.

Today starts the beginning of a new journey for me. One that will involve willpower, accountability, mental and physical strength, and lots of hydration.

I, my friends, am beginning training for a half-marathon. That's right. 13.1 miles of running. Running from nothing, towards nothing, with nobody chasing me.

The 4th Year Begins

Yesterday Spencer and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary, which is insane to me. It seems literally like only months ago I was anxiously putting on my dress, opening my beautiful Tiffany bracelet, and crying over the longest, most heartfelt letter from my groom. I will never forget the church doors opening, and seeing him waiting for me at the end of the aisle - laughing because my mom, my dad, and I were all crying as we walked down the aisle together. :)

An Update

Hi, and happy Monday!

I know it's been nothing but crickets over here lately, so thanks for sticking around. After we got back from our AMAZING two week vacation (posts are going to come, I promise), we both jumped head first into work. My first week back was insanely busy! Also, I'm excited to share that I have gotten a promotion! Previously I was the marketing coordinator, and am now the events strategist! :) 

On Friday, I was interviewed by Mutual of Omaha for my "Aha Moment." I was nervous, as I'd never done anything before on camera, and had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised - it was a blast! They made it so easy on me, and I really enjoyed myself. I'll definitely share when it's edited into its neat little 30 second clip! 

This weekend was spent catching up on all things housework. Dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, laundry, changing name it, I did it. Whew! It was a lot of work, but I do love starting the week with a clean house. Piper, not so much. She's doing everything in her power to make sure it gets messy again ;)

ALSO, YDD has a new Lemon Drop Sponsor - please say hello to Rachel from! Rachel and I first connected on Twitter - her former blog name included...get this...her yellow door! Small world, huh? Ever since, I've enjoyed getting to know her through her blog and now at her new website. She's a wonderful writer, and I'm excited to feature her this month! Be on the lookout soon for her Q&A so you can get to know her a little better.
I've missed touching base with y'all - thanks again for your patience!

Until next time - -
