Friday Randoms

9.07.2012

Happy Friday! Hope you're ready for a whole lot of random because that's pretty much all I've got today. :)

-My poor sweet E has been one sick little girl. It started out as a little cold but then she developed a terrible cough to go with it. We were stuck in the house for a few days while rested but yesterday we both needed to get out. I took her out for a little coffee and lunch date and she seemed to be happy to be out and about. Today she seems to be feeling much better despite her little cough. I'm so glad because I can't stand it when she doesn't feel well and I can't do anything about it!

-Jesse got a new Blackberry for work so he was kind enough to give me his newer iPhone. (Yes, he's such a sweetheart!) I am in love! I didn't realize just how slow and out of date my old phone was until I got my hands on this bad boy. Since my old phone couldn't be updated I haven't really been able to take advantage of all of the new apps out there. So, tell me: What are your must-have apps?

-Emerson finally has enough hair to clip bows into but we really don't have very many that are the right size. I still put her big bows on with headbands, but I'd like to have some smaller bows for her hair. She looks like such a big girl with them in and I just love the way it looks. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to order from?
-I think I've finally gotten my workout groove back. I did 3 runs this week and 2 strength workouts. I am nowhere near where I need to be in my half-marathon training but I'm going to keep pushing and see if I can increase my milage over the next few weeks.

-Unfortunately my healthy eating plan hasn't quite fallen into place like my workouts have. Maybe it will happen next week...

-My post yesterday was meant to be tongue in cheek but I have to be honest and tell you that it is a pretty accurate portrayal of how my time is spent during nap time most days. I really DO have to get better at time management. Time just has a way of getting away from me.

-I have done very little embroidering this week but I have so many ideas for projects so hopefully I'll get some cute stuff done this weekend and next week.

-My shopping freeze was going really well until I saw that Zulily had Mud Pie stuff. I did have a 10 dollar credit so I got two super cute outfits for less than 25 bucks. You can't beat that! Now my shopping freeze resumes...
-Other than that, we don't have much going on. We're just hanging out and relaxing this weekend. I probably won't have a whole lot to post about for Weekend Rewind but it will post, neverthless.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Free apps I like:
YouVersion Bible App has Bible reading plans that are sent to your phone. Usually a chapter a day. If you follow along with the #SheReadsTruth blog devotionals, they use this app and are in the middle of Proverbs right now.

I also like the AllRecipes free app and the Pandora app

I really want to link up to your weekend party this next time. I wanted to last time but the holiday got me all off track.

My son has had a cold and coughing all this week. It seems like this cold (maybe allergies) will never go away! I can't stand to hear their pitiful little coughs...breaks my heart!

Sorry little E has been sick. Hope her cough is better soon. I love the little Mud pie dress. Keep up the good work getting ready for your 1/2 marathon. Love you.

sorry E isn't feeling so well. I know that is no fun!

Glad E is on the mend. Way to go with working out! I don't have a whole lot of apps- bible, Facebook, pinterest, blogger, bloglovin', Craigslist, eBay, pandora, white noise, phonto, zulily, etsy, instagram, groupon, PayPal, mint.com (budget!), flashlight, pic stitch, pic jointer.

Hope E feels better soon!

I can't wait to see more of your embroidery stuff. If you need to practice any Christmas designs, Hayden would love to model for you. And I could help end your shopping freeze :)

Good for you with the exercising. Now PLEASE pass that off to me!

Poor sick E! I'm so glad she is feeling better! I'm sorry, I don't have any suggestions for where to get bows because I have my mom make all of ours! We've been so spoiled by having her know how to make them! You are pretty craft, I bet you could make your own too!

Mandy said...

Good luck in your training for the half marathon! You're going to do great girl! Oh, and you did much better than I did on that Mud Pie sale...I spent $55! Hahahaaha! But I got 3 really cute outfits, so it's worth it! ;)

Glad she's feeling better!! Girl you can make her bows!! I made all of Jillian's and still make some.

Hmmm, fav apps....scanlife,(those cool little barcode boxes on everything), blog lovin, bump, ex watermark, fisher price animal sounds!! Just to name a few, lol!! Good for you on getting back at it, I knew you could and would! Your my motivation, I'm on the elliptical now!!
