Life on the Daily.

Aside from yesterday's post, I haven't really posted in 2 weeks! The adventuring has been at a minimum, but don't worry. Summer Vacations are around the corner and there are gonna be some adventures to share. 

So for now, here is a bit of life on the reg:

A lot of front lawn time with Smiles. She loves it. I love it. The neighbors...well...

I graduated from the 30 Day Shred.
That is 30 days. In a row. The shred itself is fine. The hard part was the commitment, getting up early if I knew I wouldn't have time to shred later in the day. I've moved onto Ripped in 30. Jillian really is trying to ruin my life with that one. Thankfully, I'm not doing it every day. But then again, maybe I should be.

I also graduated the C25k program for the first time. I am a two time drop out over the last 3 years. And finally, FINALLY, I pushed through to the 8th week. I can run for 30 minutes non-stop. Which isn't exactly 3.1 miles (yet) but we're getting there. 
I don't exactly love it. And I hate it while doing it. But the smile below is brought to you by endorphins. Right?

There has been a good amount of healthy eating going on too. Results are minimal. (Because, you know, unhealthy eating sometimes creeps in).But really, summertime produce is the best.

Summertime also means long days. And heading downtown in the evenings means I'm usually greeted to views like this:
And this:

With warm days here, the pool in my building has been turned on. The kids usually claim it all weekend long. But I managed to sneak an hour in on a Sunday afternoon while things were quiet. There may have been two very olllld men there with me, but they didn't splash, so I was content. 

My mom ended her 35ish year career as an ICU nurse. Probably the most badass RN you'll meet. And to celebrate we took her on a family day to Sausalito. 
It was gorgeous at home and gorgeous there, but slightly foggy along the way. Just slightly. 

Mylie has been as cute as ever:

There have been a couple new snuggle bugs introduced into my world lately.
Zachariah Owen:

And Lincoln the Goldendoodle:

And, well, the fun fact is I just blogged this whole thing from my phone! I'm gonna be so thrilled if this works. And so bummed if it doesn't.

And there ya have it, in between moments can be just as lovely as the adventurous ones.
