twelve on the twelfth…March

around or about the 12th…here is what is happening around our house…


1. {Farm Fresh To You} On Thursday we received our very first box of freshly picked produce from a local farm. It was so exciting…and delicious too! Check them out at farm fresh to you.

3. {Grocery Store} A quick stop at the grocery store next door to Starbucks. Needed some stuff for dinner tonight and the weekend. How often do you go to the grocery store? I think we need to plan better because I’m there a lot!


4. {Costco} And a Costco run, too. This one was quick…we go through certain things quickly and they are so much cheaper at Costco. I stop there way more than most people, too, I think. Hmmmm


5. {Meal for a friend} A good friend of mine is recovering from knee surgery and I brought her family a meal tonight. So this afternoon was spent making homemade meatballs, sauce, spaghetti, zucchini, salad and hubby’s yummy balsamic vinaigrette. I made this for us tonight, too. I’m so ahead of the game!


6. {Gum} My kids love gum right now. Especially the little one who just recently learned to not swallow it! Orbit gum is on sale right now and they have lots of fun flavors. The kids are loving choosing a different flavor each time.


7. {Cardinals T-ball} Tomorrow is Opening Day for baseball around here. The rain has not been a friend to baseball this season and Opening Day was postponed from last week. Tomorrow should be a muddy, sloppy mess since it’s pouring right now.


8. {Creating Keepsakes} Finally! CK has switched to a few double month issues so we had to wait a bit for the March/April issue. I’m looking forward to curling up with this one. The cover is apropos to the weather today.


9. {Rain} Yep, it’s raining again today. I do like the rain though. And we need it. I’m hoping that it’s snowing hard up the hill!


10. {Skiing} Because the hubby and I are heading off to a ski day while the boys play with Grandma and Grandpa! It’s been 10 years since I last skied! Having kiddos really cramped my skiing style. Everyone keeps telling me it’s like riding a bike and I’ll remember. I’m a bit anxious…but excited to spend the day with my hubby doing something we used to love to do together!


11. {Favorite Trees} These trees line a lot of streets in our town and I love them. You can’t tell from the picture, but some of them are starting to bud and they will have the cutest white/pink flowers on them. Maybe they’ll be in full bloom on April 12th and I’ll show you my favorite season of them!


12. {5k} I hopped on the treadmill and ran 3.1 miles without stopping today! Previously I’ve run about 2.5 before needing to stop…but today I actually made it the whole way! Yay! The time above actually had some walking in it at the end for a cool down…I actually ran at a 11:00 minute pace. So now, with 4 weeks left til my official 5k, my goal is to shave time off! I’m so proud of myself. About 9 weeks ago I could barely run three minutes straight and now I can run 35 minutes no problem!

Hope you had a great weekend. I did go hang out with some girlfriends last night…but I didn’t get any scrapping done. We gabbed too much. So I have no layouts to show you…and therefore no sketches. I’ll flip through some recent stuff and share on Monday, though…
