Silver Lining: around these parts - snowcones and running

August 1, 2012

around these parts - snowcones and running

Let me tell you what's been going on around these parts.

First of all - new blog design! The talented Heather of Milkglass and Honey did it, and let me just say, she is a miracle worker. I won this redesign at a blogger meet-up {yet another reason to go to those things} and before I knew I won anything I was admiring how put-together and confident Heather was. Thanks a million H!

Second - let me tell you about Monday nights at the lovenest. We have family home evening. Inevitably, I end up begging Sam to go on a family run and  accidentally/on purpose end up at the snowcone place. He usually says yes :)

and a few weeks ago

And yes, I am aware my snowcones are getting progressively larger. I'm in control...

And speaking of running - some people have asked me how I run and train. HA! Here's what happens: I crank up my music loud enough to drown out my panting, and then I run with no rhyme, reason or route until my Endomondo app tells me I've gone farther than yesterday, and then I try to find my way home. And turn my music up a little more to drown out the added panting. That's it! I should write a book. This could change lives :)

In other news - want to make me super happy?
