Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork, UT

Celebrating Spring with the Hindus @ a Krishna Temple

I'm gonna get the award for babysitter of the year. Thank you Cabellas for being awesome.

My breakfast-on-the-go lately. Blended banana, spoonful of organic peanut butter, tbs of flax seed, bunch of spinach, ice cubes and water.  I'm lovin it!

No matter what diet I'm on I can't resist pizza

Jordan, Chelsey (brother and sister-in-law) and I went to explore Moab, UT this past weekend.  Such a gorgeous place!  The photos are mainly from a hike to Delicate Arch and around Fiery Furnace, both highly recommended. Jordan wanted to be a nature man and go barefoot most of the trip.  Me and Chelsey laughed behind his back a lot in the beginning but pretty quickly we were doing the same thing.  The rock is so smooth and there's sand everywhere so it just felt right. This was the perfect time of year there, not too hot and not too cold.  Loved it.

My week in photos

At work.

Recipe for Pumpkin Muffins here, except I didn't add any sugar and I added about 1/2 cup of ground flax seed.  It was still yummy and much better for you!  If you like the sweetness I think you should add maybe 1/2 cup of sugar though.

Going to Walmart in my $3 Walmart sweats.  Yep, I'm one of THOSE people.

Soccer practice.

Hiding. I found him. 

My desk at work.  I think my favorite part is my Justin Bieber valentine taped to my computer that says "You were born to be somebody" with a little wink and smile. 


Something yummy for breakfast.

Just do it

Check out this motivating article

I've been lacking in motivation lately and kinda hoping I'd get in the mood to be better.  My cycle tends to be totally motivated with lots of plans and burning out, wanting to lay in bed all day.....and back again to wanting to improve.  I read the article linked above and I really liked it.  It really applies to any form of working out that you choose, not just yoga.  I'm a big believer in balance in all things and so I try to go easy on myself when I'm not in the mood to workout.  But when it comes to working out....I've never regretted doing it.  Its just that initial getting off my butt and putting my tennis shoes on thats the hardest part.  Its time to tap into my will power and be like Nike.

Happy March!

I can't believe its already March!  I'm feeling pretty good though because I've already completed a lot of goals on my 2012 to do list.  I'm rockin this year.  Are you still working on your resolutions or did you already forget what they were?  Take more pictures....check.  Learn how to work my sewing machine....check.  Explore my new home of Utah.....check.  Run a half marathon.......almost check!  I didn't tell anyone about that goal in case I decided to chicken out.  I don't know what got into me but I looked up races and I'm doing one on June 23rd. For reaaalz.  So this is my public announcement to the world so that I can't chicken out.

It snowed!  That's enough though. I'm ready for Spring.  Perry helped me shovel the driveway by scooping up snow and dropping it back in the same spot.  Oh and he made homes for squirrels in the snow. Don't ask.

Perry took this picture of me and proceeded to have a laughing attack saying that I looked hilarious.  That made me feel awweeessomee.

We had some time to kill while Evan was at soccer practice.  So, I made the game of Perry running by and seeing how blurry he could get in the picture.  He was AMAZED.  So he ran for the whole practice while I sat on a bench.  I'm a genius.

They're having a contest for who's the best DIY blog over at Apartment Therapy.  Tons of cool blogs to discover if you feel like browsing!
