Time of Transition

Hey ya’ll! I’ve missed blogging so much. I can’t believe it’s already been two months since we moved back to Dallas.

Moving - the new form of cardio for 2013.

Moving – the new form of cardio for 2013.

If life happens in phases, this is definitely a transitional phase. Physical transition, emotional transition, career transition, routine transition, etc.

I’m not always the best with tons of changes at once, but I am learning new levels of putting faith in His plan, of going with the flow and of patience.

The saving grace these past several weeks have been our friends and family near and far. Our Dallas friends have welcomed us back with open arms, open homes, delicious meals, real estate advice, girls’ nights and more. Our families have been praying for us each day. We even had our first visitors, my wonderful in-laws, this past weekend.

Even my old Starbucks barista – Panda – welcomed me back!

Chris and I are slowly settling into some semblance of a routine and making a home here. Speaking of home, we just bought a spacious/great lot/lots of wall paper/fixer-upper near Dallas. We are a bit overwhelmed but very excited to make it our own. Any DIY advice will be appreciated. This is a small slice of what we are dealing with.

On the fitness front, I am starting to train for the Tennessee Ragnar Relay in October and a few half marathons this fall. I ran my first 5K here a few weeks ago, and it felt so awesome to put my Oiselle race gear back on.

I fell in love with running in Dallas so it’s super special to be back here running again. I just finished my Crossfit intro class tonight so I will be adding lots of Crossfit into my workouts.

I’m so excited for settling in to Dallas and really making it feel like home! Things are super busy between work and home renovations but I will definitely be blogging more often from here on out. I have some great products and recipes to share with  my blends!

How have ya’ll been doing? Anyone tackled a DIY project before – tips, advice, horror stories?!

  1. I’m a tad jealous of your fixer upper! I’m hoping that once we start looking, we can find something to add our personal touches to :)

    Are you doing the NOLA Jazz 1/2 in October?
