Hubster…oh, that guy!

There are many times each year that I’m guaranteed to only see my husband for about 10 minutes each day. I know that he loves working in student affairs and I try my best to be as supportive as possible. Solo parenting is challenging though and I stand in awe of those who do it all the time! Last week, Hubster had ResLife spring training. He would get home around 2am and we only saw him briefly as he was getting ready to head out again in the morning.

It was a happy weekend!

We actually had a family weekend and I cherished the time we had together. It was the first Sunday in about three weeks that Hubster didn’t need to work.

I put Baby Jo’s hair in pigtails for the first time. It lasted for about 40 seconds.

The Day I Became a Fierce Half-Marathoner

I signed up for my first half marathon when I completed my first 10k in June. After completing that race and crossing it off my 30 Before 30 list, I felt on top of the world. I wanted to give myself a new challenge – something I never imagined I’d be able to do. Hubster required a little convincing, but we signed up together and the date was set.

Green Bay Packers Shareholder Meeting and 5k

At the Packers Shareholder Meeting

A few years ago when the Green Bay Packers opened up sale of their stock, Hubster had to invest. Being a Packers shareholder was always a dream of his and even though we didn’t have much, we scraped together some money and purchased a share. That share is framed and hangs proudly in our apartment. ;)

30 Before 30: #6 Run a 10k

One of the things on my 30 Before 30 list was to run a 10k. There are some people for whom running comes naturally. They can easily run long distances with little to no training.

Ready for our 10k

It’s 5:45am and I’m ready to go!

I am not one of those people.

(Kinda) Wordless Wednesday: C and Baby Jo’s Photo Shoot

We recently had a photo shoot for C’s 3-year and Baby Jo’s 1-year pictures. A big thank you Kymberly Carlson Photography for her patience with my wild, uncooperative children. :)

I wanted her to have a monkey smash cake, reminiscent of C’s!

Here’s a Little Throwback Thursday Madness

Since I posted my (Kinda) Wordless Wednesday on Tuesday this week, I thought I would keep with the wackiness that was this week by creating a fun Throwback Thursday post. I hope you enjoy the madness…

There’s the time Hubster gave me a little push as I tried to scale that tree.

(Kinda) Wordless Wednesday: Hubster Takes the Kids to the Park

Spring has finally sprung in Wisconsin! Just last week, I had to scrape ice off the windshield before going somewhere. It’s been a loooong winter. Hubster took the kids to the park over the weekend and they had the greatest time together! I wasn’t complaining about the nap I took while they were gone. ;)
