What has Madison been up too you ask??

Playing with puzzles

Yay for shapes!

Playing with her doggies

Thinking about what is for dinner

Learning how to care for her doggies


Going food shopping. She loves the cookies that the bakery ladies give out.

Going to a baseball game.

Running up and down the big hill

Playing dress up with hats

Falling asleep during lunch. It is a bit long, if you dont want to watch the whole thing make sure you fast forward it to a bit past the middle to see her sleeping through getting her feet tickled. Pretty Funny!!! :O)

I won my 2nd blog contest!! Whoot hoo! I don't even enter many, I might need to enter more!! :O) I still can't believe I won!

A few months ago I won a necklace from Traci over at Beneath My Heart.

Well, this morning I won a blog contest over on Jenni's blog Jenni from the Blog. She has such a cute blog and is quickly becoming one of my favorite mommy bloggers. She is so funny and I really enjoy reading her blog. If you don't know Jenni already, you really have to check out her blog. She is also #23 on the list of Top Baby Blogs. That is awesome! I voted a few times for her along with her other wonderful bloggie friends.

Lets talk about what I WON!! Madison's bday is around the corner and the contest was for a custom card design from Jenn's esty shop 9 Designs. What a great giveaway!! You must stop by and check out her shop! She has all sorts of cards from birthday invitations and announcements, to all things baby and wedding.

Let the party planning begin!! Thanks so much Jenni!!

Happy Earth Day!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Madison and I had a fun time at playgroup this morning. My wonderful friend Abby hosted at her home and spoiled us with goodies. I think I am now addicted to lemon bars... so yummy!!! Madison is taking a nap so I thought I sit and check email and catch up on a few of my favorite blogs. Sorry for the lack of blogging this week! Nothing too exciting going on here this week. The weather has been beautiful, so we are trying to take advantage of that while we can. It is suppose to rain tomorrow and all weekend. Boo hoo! One of Madison's girlfriends is having her big 01 Birthday party on Saturday, so we will be hanging out with friends Saturday afternoon. I hope to get my chair project done this weekend since we will be stuck indoors. Fingers crossed. I have to do my spring cleaning too. I just haven't been in the mood! I love to clean, but I have just not been feeling it the last couple of weeks. I actually should tend to all the dishes in my sink right now from our dinner last night. We were in charge of making dinner for house church last night and didn't get home until after 9:30pm. Then we woke up this morning and off to play group!! So no time this morning. Must get those done before JR gets home. He actually just called..... I don't have to cook tonight whoot hoo! (We were going to have left overs anyways)I still have to do the dishes though!! LOL!! A friend of ours is moving, so there is a going away dinner for him. JR went to the going away lunch today too. Lucky Duck!! PF Changs here we come!! Yumm!!

Happy Thursday!!

Running Update

Ran 1 mile straight today. Last week I thought I did good at 1/2 mile. I just kept going today. Just a couple of weeks ago it was tough to run 2 laps in a row. Today I did 16 laps(which is 1 mile). Then I ran/ walked the rest of the time. Feeling good too!

My mom and I are doing a 5K run in September. Can't wait!! It is 3 miles and I am feeling good about it now.

Say Cheese!!!

Random photo shoot of me and Madison that we had the other day :O)

Random Recent Pictures

Yard sale find. Brand new wagon in the box $10.00. Madison and the dogs like it. I think it will be a nice garden/ yard work wagon.
Mexican Chicken Salad. Dinner one day last week.
I found the cutest mini stroller at Toys R Us the other day. It said 3+ yrs, but it is the perfect size for her. It is a mini Mclaren umbrella stroller, just like the one I have for her. Only $12.oo! I was going to buy her a step 2 or little tikes plastic one, but this will be great for the next few yrs and less babyish.
Safety First!!

Slide found on Craigslist $10 like new condition.
Off to the park. Madison loved getting to walk the dogs.
