She-Ra Princess of Power!

 Yes...this is what we named our new daughter! Isn't she adorable! She's a 7 week old chihuahua. We are wondering if she might be long-haired or wire-haired. We met the mom, but don't know what the dad looks like. She is so tiny at 2.2 pounds! I had to buy her a "toy" sized collar!

There's a big difference from She-Ra to our 20 lb. dachshund, Samson.

He of course is adorable also, and our first child. He is not, however, adapting to this new change very well. He is 4 yrs old and set in his old man ways. He almost acts like he is scared of her. She likes to play and bite him on the ears and tail and Samson just sits there. She tried to take his toy yesterday and he bit her! It wasn't bad enough to draw blood or anything, but that's still a big no no! We are praying he will adapt and become friends with her. Otherwise, I'm not sure what we will do...

On another note...this heat is killing my running program! It stinks having to wait till 8 in the evening to run. If you miss it by just a few minutes, then it's too dark to go running. I don't have a neighborhood to run in, or even a local park that is safe at night. My husband doesn't want me running at night either, so I'm very limited. The morning workout has never really worked for me, because if I wash my hair after my workout, it takes 4 hrs for it to dry! I have very thick, curly, long hair and I can't blow dry it, because it just makes it incredibly frizzy! So I have the option to either workout in the evening, or go to work with my hair wet.  So far, neither of these options are really working. Looks like I need a new plan!

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful! We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do! It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option. We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :) And that's not all of the big news! I

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :) I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love... My BOB Revolution SE ! I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here ! :) My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces ! They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes! I love their moto! Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray. In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver . Th
