Time Flies
when you have a Son..........





Tuesday, February 23, 2010


We had a ladies cross country ski day at Soldier Hollow in Midway. Ya that is right...move on over down hill because there is a new sheriff in town! And I'm crossing my heart... this is my new favorite sport and here is why....
  • Pretty much anyone can do it
  • It's a fabulous triceps, butt, and leg workout-tell me another exercise that does all those things and is actually FUN
  • It's a chance to get out of the mucky inversion. Note: sunshine in pics
  • You can rent a sled to pull your kiddos
  • There is NO WAY, you get cold, actually you should be worried about getting too HOT
  • You go at a slow enough pace to chat it up with your peeps
  • When you go down hill you put your skis in these grooves and it totally feels like a roller coaster. For reals it is an adrenaline rush
Soooo... if anyone is down for going, let me know, because I am totally up for going again... and again...and probably, again. But we are running out of time. Spring is on it's way and I will be welcoming it with bells on!

Aunt Cathy is demonstrating the roller coaster grooves your skis go into. SO.MUCH.FUN.


Just sled doggin it with James in his chariot.


Have I mentioned every time I get together with these gals I laugh for days. (john just said it's weird i call girls gals:)... Anyway, we had lunch at the lodge and everyone pulled out these gourmet lunches with canteens filled with homemade soups, salads, etc. Then my mom and me pulled out the exact same kind of grocery sack with a peanut butter sandwich, orange, and bag of walnuts. Yup, me and my mom relate. Anyway, my mouth was watering over the others lunches (and it made me think of John's not- so- great lunches I send with him to work..note, work on that). Luckily, my Aunt Cheryl came to my rescue. She whipped out a whole homemade pie. Another reason skiing with these girls totally rocks.my.socks.


So skier chic. My mom and aunts are quite the cross country experts. Oh, and one more thing; my nephew goes to a charter school at Solider Hollow and he gets to ski everyday at recess. Lucky kid.

Need a little motherhood motivation?

If you have had a day like mine.. (e.g. stuck in the casa with crying baby, hubby at school every night, horrible hair) you will appreciate this post.
My mom inspires me to expand my horizons, not care what others think , and laugh lots along the way.
And if you want one of her books for free, let me know. I will find away to get you one. She has a great writing style that helps you put things in perspective. So add her to your blog list. I promise you will be a better momma for it.

My Long LOST Love is Back!

(invite I sent to John at work)
Due to the Vikings not making it to the super bowl, the season premier of LOST was the biggest event at our house this week.

Welcome to the island

Romantic dinner for two... I guess three, counting James.

"The smoke monster is going to take my baby!"

Because I watched the first five seasons while James was in my belly, I think he was preconditioned to be a fan of the sci-fi soap.

Dinner was cluckity-cluck-cluck good. The menu featured Hurley's favorite, Mr Cluck's Fried Chicken.

We made this ice-cream island disappear faster than you could say 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42.
The Lost Diary is posted. He sums up my thoughts exactly.
I am liking the alternate reality thing. It is apparent all my questions are never going to be answered so I might as well start making up my own explanations in my head.
I don't really know why I am posting this b/c like 2 of my friends actually watch the show, and every one else is probably thinking I've turned into some sci-fi fanatic. I wish I could blame it on John, but I am way more into it than him. But, If you ever have surgery or something and have LOADS of couch time.. check out the DVDs. Time will fly and I bet it would be even more entertaining on pain meds.
