Sorry I have been absent this week, but I have been keeping my Achieve in August promise by being SUPER ACTIVE! We have done family bike ride every night this week, I did Zumba Wednesday night, ran 3's this morning (I'll explain in a minute), and even went back to the gym tonight for 30 minutes

What A Weekend

We had such a wonderful weekend! We fished a ton (Zachary's first time), went to the drive in (again a 1st for me and Zac), and even found a random place doing pony rides! I'm wiped just thinking about all we packed in! I love weekends like that though. It's exactly how I imagined life

World’s Ugliest Pie

Tonight we shall talk sweets! Yesterday I was CRAVING pie.....which is strange because I'm a cake kinda gal. Now I grew up in Texas with a Nana who can make a scratch pie crust that will make you slap yo momma LOL. When I think pie crust I think flaky, buttery, golden melt in your mouth dense

Happy Monday, and MLK Day! "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
