Scarlett Goes to the Dentist!



Last week Miss Scarlett had her very first dental appointment! 

She was quite the trooper. She was interested in sitting in the big chair that moves up and down but once the actual dentist came in, she got a bit fussy and freaked out. She showed her teeth to Dr. Rothi for about two seconds before clamping down and starting to cry. She hid in Daddy's chest for most of the rest of the visit but she still got a super cute Winnie the Pooh toothbrush and even got to pick a toy from the treasure chest! She picked out a little metal yo-yo that had the world printed on it and proceeded to bite the heck out of it for the entire rest of the morning. 

Oh, well. 










All in all, she was a wonderful patient.

one hundred



Yesterday I hit 100 miles in my 365 miles in 2013 challenge! 

We spent the morning hiking at Lake Chabot with my friend Jamie and had the best time! We're going to try and go once a week when Scarlett and I make our trek to the Bay for the day... I had the best night's sleep last night, too! Hiking is awesome! It was so much prettier than walking through the industrial area of our town and seeing all the semi-trucks idling and spewing exhaust while we walk past.

















I can't wait to go again next week!

big skies & blossoming trees...



The weather out here has been a bit wonky lately. It'll be clear and warm one day, blustery and cloudy the next and then rainy the day after that! But, it all adds up to some pretty pictures while we take our walks...

Miles 91 through 95



I'm closing in on 100 miles! 

Hopefully by this time tomorrow, I'll have passed the 100 mile mark. Fingers crossed! Here are some shots from miles 91 through 95.

songs to scrub dishes by #33




You know how there are just some songs that make you feel like you're about to burst from happiness? This is one of those for me...

Happy scrubbing!

coffee cuties



Last week my mom and I took Scarlett and her cousin Kaiden out for coffee and a treat. We all had a blast! 












There was chocolate milk and cake pops for the kiddos and tons of coffee and cookies for my mom and I. We should definitely do this more often!
