    Beauty Junkies Unite: Ulta’s 21 days of deals

    Tomorrow begins a BIG sale for beauty junkies. For 21 days straight, Ulta will have daily deals and events in store and online. It’s a big deal because there are some items on BIG discount. I believe Ulta does this twice a year now, and every day they will sell out of the featured deal. If you have a store nearby and plan to go in, arrive early so you won’t be disappointed, especially on the weekends. After looking through all the sales, I made a wish list of my “must haves.” Unfortunately my budget won’t allow me to buy everything, so I am still working on picking out the best…

    High Five for Friday 3.13

    Happy Friday the 13th!  I love how superstitious people get whenever there is a Friday the 13th.  It has never bothered me because my birthday is on the 13th of December.  I have had several birthdays on a Friday, including when I turned 16 and nothing bad has happened to me. This Friday the 13th I plan to work on my Fancy Fox quilt a bit and go to bed early.  Don’t be jealous of my party lifestyle (insert winky and/or sleepy emoji here). Here’s a recap of my week! Saturday we went for our long run out on gravel roads.  (Side note– when I first typed “run” I actually…

    Spring dreams

      So I don’t know what it is like in your neck of the woods, but it has been absolutely b-e-a-utiful here lately!  We have seen some 70 degree days (SEVENTY!!) and I am in heaven.  (If my husband is reading this right now he is rolling his eyes and hoping that the frozen tundra returns quickly.)   All this fabulous weather has me also wishing for new spring pieces to add to my already stuffed wardrobe.  This spring and summer I hope to add more color, especially pink, turquoise, and lime green.  Below are some of my faves so far.   1/ Old Navy $20 (on sale!)  2/ Vera…

    On running and life.

      Running is so much like life. When it’s beautiful out. When the sun is shining. When the temperature is perfect and everyone is smiling. It makes me want to run slower. It makes me want to run longer. It makes me want to savor it. Breathe it in deep and snap lots of pictures. Smile at all the people passing, and nod hello at my fellow runners. When the weather is nasty. When the sky is dark. When it’s windy and icy and raining. It makes me want to get it over with. Just finish it as fast as possible and ignore the pain and not think. Sometimes it…

    High Five for Friday 3.6

    We made it to the weekend yet again! Yippee! I hope you all had a fantastic week and will have an even better weekend. I know I will because the weather is looking amazing for the next few days! Here is a recap of my week! We had an amazing weekend celebrating my sister-in-law, the bride to be! The maid of honor did a fantastic job with the Gatsby themed shower. Later that night all of the girls went out dressed as flappers for a big bachelorette party! I stayed up later than I ever have and had a total blast! I gave myself a workout rest for the whole…

    Liebster Award

    I was so excited to hear that Ashley over at Peaceful Simple Life nominated me for the fun little blogger Liebster “award”!  The award is a way for bloggers to “meet” each other and find new pages to read!  Plus it gives you all a little insight into my brain (scary!). Here are the rules: -You must answer the 10 questions posed to you by the blogger who nominated you. -You then nominate 8 more bloggers and pose 10 new questions to them.  (It is best to pick bloggers without many followers.) Here are my answers:   1.)  What is your blog about?  (Put a link to a great post you…
