hitting the pavement

today me and T stopped by my moms house to visit. shes been working so much lately that her face time with T has been seriously diminished which leaves both of them quite sad about it. while they both were busy coo-ing and smiling at one another i decided to duck out for a quick run in my childhood neighborhood. back in my teenage years i was quite the runner (and by that i strictly mean i could run thirty minutes without getting out of breath). but while i am no longer in the amazing shape i used to be in its nice to know that some things (like my old neighborhood and running route) never change. if only the same thing can be said about my waistline. darn baby weight. 

i sure hope a girl scout lives here cause thats a massive amount of girl scout cookies, even to me.

 how cute is this? saw this on the sidewalk at our family friends the maxfields. check out her daughter-in-law brooke

my old daily walk home from elementary school

wannabe bonzai tree

farms and suburbs side by side. gilbert in a nutshell

my elementary school alma mater. mesquite mountain lions are really neat, we look awesome from our head to feet. we got that smile that style that winning way, and when you....oh you didn't want me to sing our fight song? my bad.

why am i taking pictures while i'm running you may ask? hey i never said i was hardcore about running. i need something to do to keep me entertained.

lovey-dovey day

i love valentines day. everything about it. dj on the other hand still tries to convince people that it's a made up hallmark holiday and "why should you need a special day to let someone know you love them? you should do that everyday". yeah, he's one of those people. i gotta hand it to him though, even though he doesn't agree with my philosophy of celebrating valentines day (which usually consists of over-the-top mushy gushy stuff. i'm talking multiple love notes, unlimited foot rubs, surprise dinner, flowers, chocolates....just to name a few) he makes a better valentine then he thinks. letting me eat the most of our samoa girl scout cookies? thats the makings of a great valentine. this year we made a mutual decision to lay low. so you can bet on finding us with copious amounts of pink colored candies and cupcakes watching romance movies. for those of you planning on   a more laid back valentines like us, heres a list of my favorite rom coms to get you started.

  • alot like love
  • my best friends wedding
  • ps i love you
  • the notebook (obviously)
  • just married
  • nick and norahs infinite playlist
  • the wedding singer
  • just go with it

happy valentines day!
