So, I was in need of some motivation to get my
butt in gear. Ever since I had to give up my gym
membership, I have had a hard time getting
motivated to get out an exercise. When I gave up the
gym, I asked my hubby to get me a bike so that
I could get exercise that way. It's one of my favorite
forms of exercise. Anyway, I started biking my girls
home from school, but it's not enough. Yesterday, I
attempted to ride for 20 min before picking them up...
still not enough. I planned a route for myself & decided
to do that before I pick them up.
My husband also came home contemplating his health &
needing to get back to his weekly rides. He's in much
better shape than I am, but since our move, has not
gotten on the road.
So, as I was planning my routes, I decided to challenge
him. So, we decided that 700 mile between now & Dec.
31st would be reasonable, but would also keep us accountable.
For some cyclists, this isn't very much, but for us it's plenty.
He has a very busy job & we have 2 kiddos & we just moved
and have lots of new house projects. So for us, this seems
We wanted to invite any of you that need some motivation or
just want to see what you can do. So, join us, while we try to
kick each other's butts :)

I know I've haven't blogged in several months
and I was starting to have withdrawls. We moved
from San Diego to Murrieta in March & our lives
have been crazy busy. This is our very first home
and we're loving it! As those of you who own homes
know...it keeps you very busy. Our house needs a little
TLC and we've been working really hard to get
everything done we can...especially on the outside
of the house before it gets too hot. Here are the pics
of all the before's and what we've been doing...
The girl's playroom
We decided instead of giving them each their own
rooms, we would give them a playroom. One of my
biggest pet peeves is seeing their room with toys
everywhere. This was actually an bonus room, because
we were only looking for a 3 bedroom. We were blessed
to get this house with 4 rooms! The girl's complained at
first (not having their own rooms) but they are now very
happy to have a place to play & do homework!!
Got this from our old neighbors a few days before we moved.
Wasn't sure what I was going to use it for, but now I'm
making it into an entryway bench/shelving/hook thingy.
It's gonna get a coat of paint & a little make over.
The last thing I wanted to share today was some pics of a little nest
that showed up on our patio. We were so excited to see these little
birds building a couple of weeks after we moved in. About two weeks
later we had these little guys...
