Twice the love...half the sleep

I'm a 30- year-old mother of fraternal twins, Aaron and Jillian. I started my blog to keep in touch with family and friends around the US and then became addicted. Now I write about my family's journey to healthy eating, my running and just the random things we do in the land of the mouse. Check me out at http://netherotwins.blogspot.com

 

"That is NOT appropriate!" and other observations...

All Mascara is Not Created Equal - A Review

I am a lover of small books with little facts or tips. I'm pretty sure I have at least a dozen of them. I like to refer to them when I'm not having the best day because there is always at least one page that will make me smile, or at least reflect on the issue at hand ....more

They have both a 2 mile race and a 10k, or you can be crazy like us and run both.The race goes through the beautiful neighborhoods in downtown Winter Park and along the lake front. It also starts before the sun comes up, which on some of the brick roads is a little bit like testing fate ....more

Princess Weekend - Part 3...The One With The Half Marathon

Sunday was the final race of Princess weekend and the final 2 a.m. wake up call. I was the most nervous for the half marathon and had set a goal of 2:45 - 2:50 for myself on the race. I knew it was ambitious because Disney races are packed with people and are often hard to PR in.The weather was so much nicer on Sunday morning and I was beyond pleased with it ....more
