New Baby and More News

Happy Friday, my friends!!

  My little sister had her first baby on Wednesday! She and her hubby live in Wisconsin, so I haven't been able to see him yet, other than in pictures. He is the cutest thing in the world. I'm in love!!
 Next week I'll be driving up there to spend a few days with them. I can't wait!! My goal is to not shed one tear! (Where she can see me anyway!) 


A couple weeks ago I was talking about needing a nutritionist. I got lots of ideas and recommendations. (Thank you!) I have been followings Laura's blog at Mommy Run Fast for a long time and I remembered that she was a health coach. I contacted her and we are going to be working together! I'm so excited! I will be sure to share all of the things I learn! 

  Am I the only weird one who gets excited when I see another car with my sticker? Thankfully my husby doesn't get embarrassed easily when I wave and give them the thumbs up!! (He just rolls his eyes)
 
One more thing...
I signed up to volunteer at the Dirty Girl mud run, in August! I'm sure it would be a lot of fun to participate in too! I can't wait!

I'll be gone next week, but when I get back I will be sure to overload you with lots of adorable baby pics!!

  3. Nieces and nephews are the best. I expect tons of cute baby pictures to gush over.
    And don't worry, I too smile every time I see a 26.2 sticker.

    2. Horribly enough when I see the 13.1 stickers I think - mine's bigger.
      It's like I am some dude in a locker room.

    1. I'll definitely let you know how it goes. I have volunteered for a very small (30 people) 5k race once. I'm sure this will be a very different experience!

  8. Oh my, that is a cute baby!!
    I volunteered at a triathlon this morning. I have volunteered for this for several years and it's always fun but it feels strange being on the other side and not being the one running, sweating, pushing myself, legs hurting, etc... Afterward, I was letting the athletes back into the transition area to pick up their bikes and other gear but I was also picking up trash from around the transition area and I've never had so many people thank me and tell me how wonderful I am - for picking up trash!!
    Have a fun trip.
