I Could Not Resist

View from an Evening Run

The other night I set out on a beautiful evening run with the husband. The temperature was in the 40s with hardly a glimpse of snow on the ground for a February day. The sun was slowly starting to go down as we hit the pavement. Spring was in the air, at least for this […]


Windy Destruction

Posted on February 22nd, 2012 by Jess Life

Tonight as the wind howled outside, we were inside enjoying a nice game with my parents before they take off in the morning. As we were enjoying the game, the wind decided to take a stab at our BBQ grill. There it went crashing down. It decided to pull a yard sale crash landing all […]


Retirement and a cake! Congrats Dad!

Layers put together!

My dad was a lucky man this last Friday. He was able to enjoy his last day of work. He is now a retired man. After years of hard work, he finally is able to sit down and relax, but not quite yet. He still has to make the big move out to Oregon with […]


Running and Cycling

Random Picture - Fan

Yesterday morning, Jess had a scheduled 20 mile run to do and since I’ve been dragging my feet on the whole running front, I decided to run a portion with her. I also recently signed up for the Seattle to Portland cycling event, so I needed to get out on that new bike of mine […]

Winter Running (Without Winter)

Posted on February 15th, 2012 by Brent Photo/Video Run/Hike/Bike

As you have probably been reading from Jess, we have had a strange lack of winter this year, which has lead to some beautiful days, days more reminiscent of spring. Jess has been able to enjoy many of her runs in above freezing temperatures and many of them in sunshine. It really has been a […]


Table Progress – DONE!

Not much more room to spare!

I’m done! The table is finally finished. After putting a coat of wax and rubber feet on the table, I decided to bring it in. It’s a good thing I didn’t make it 6′ like I originally planned! It feels great to have accomplished this task! Now I just need to find some chairs. Hopefully […]


Happy V-day!

Heart Shaped French Toast

I woke up this morning to Brent telling me to sleep in! Sure thing as I thought as he hopped in the shower and I just laid in bed. Then he headed downstairs as I got ready for the day. As I made my way downstairs, I could hear Brent fiddling around in the kitchen. […]


Going Away…

Posted on February 12th, 2012 by Jess Family Life

Last night, we threw my parents a surprise going away party. They are less than two weeks away from embarking on a new adventure in Oregon. We invited many people to come and get a few last goodbyes in before the big move. It was great to see everyone supporting them and excited for their […]


Increased Mileage Update

A Break in Running for a Quick Photo Op

I have been plugging away at logging my long runs over the last several weekends. From here on out, I will not be going below a 16 miler. (Other than my midweek mileage). When I trained for the Portland Marathon, I think I ran a total of 4 runs over 15 miles which included one […]
