Sister Sister

Okay, so I promise I am not going to reflect on the ridiculous TV show from the 90s. However, do you see the hats in the picture above? I may have sported a few a la Blossom around that time of my life. Thankfully it was a time before digital photography took over the world!!

I actually came across this article from the NY Times today named, "Why Sisterly Chats Make People Happier". It makes me miss my sister who I won't get to see until the end of December! 

See, don't we look happy? Miss you Melis.

It is feeling really busy right now. I'm not really sure why, but I've been pretty motivated for the past month and have started about a million projects and set a ton of goals for myself that are taking up a ton of my time. It's a really good thing, but when I think about all of the things that I want to get done with in a day it can be overwhelming.

I have to admit that I am not loving my tumblr snapshot blog as much as I thought I would. In the past week I've kind of fallen of the wagon with it, because I feel like it is too disconnected from this blog and I'm feeling like I'm neglecting both. I am currently toying with the idea of merging that blog into this one and just using this from now on.

Besides my blog dilemma, I have also gotten into a pretty good fitness routine and started running.. which, if you know me (which you probably do if you are reading this blog), is a really strange thing for me to be into. Before this month I could barely run a mile and now I'm running over 10 miles a week!

We've also been doing a ton of Fall maintenance at the house and getting in over our heads on to many do it yourself home improvement projects. My house is kind of a disaster right now, but I think all of it will pay off in the next few weeks.

I have big plans to do a bunch of posts on everything that has been going on. I just need to find those additional hours in my day.. they've got to be hiding out somewhere.

Because I can't help myself...

Found this site... Love of Goldens ...which pretty much puts my gratuitous photos of Charlie on this blog to shame. If you need puppy time I suggest just heading over there. It makes me want another one...
And of course I can't send you to a site all about goldens without featuring my own...

Rumor Has It...

I recently turned 29. I won't confirm or deny this rumor, but I will let you know that I've made a plan to document this next year of my life through a Tumblr blog... which is somewhat of an addendum to this blog. It mostly just allows me a place to put a ton of pictures that I take each day, but I also think it will be a fun project... if I can keep up with it. Anyway, if you're interested, you can follow me here: http://delightedtobehere.tumblr.com/

The only parameters that I have for it is that I place at least one photo up each day. Some days, there will be more, some days there will be less. We'll see how it goes.

One Season Down, Two To Go

Dan coached his last football game of the season today... a rough loss to Mann. But overall the season was really successful and he is sad that it's over.

Here's a video of him rallying the troops at his game... I thought my camera would pick up what he was saying, but I guess not. Anyway, the footage was shot so I figure I should use it.

Now we just have both the girls and the boys' basketball seasons to get through and it's another coaching year complete!
