Slacking with my Blogging….

24 Apr

But for good reason! I have not blogged in so long because I have been really sick. I have been on bed rest with Baby K since Saturday! I wasn’t sure if I would share this on the blog or not as I am a pretty shy person if I don’t know you in real life. But then I thought I share everything with my readers because they are my friends. So thank you for continuing to read the blog even though I have not been blogging. I have also had an extremely bad cold and stomach bug in the past 3 days so not much interesting has happened.

Though I did leave the house once to get someone a very important haircut!

He is pretty cute and I am a crazy Momma so I had to make this and post it onto my Twitter….you know you want to follow me ;).

Yea he is wearing sun glasses, he is one bad ass man! Plus the Bandana made the look. Basically I love my little Man!

In other news what do you do when you are on bed rest?!?! Well you apparently make a Youtube video of yourself talking about Scentsy! I will be uploading a new video talking about something different each week to market my business and get more people interested. You can find my channel HERE.

Basically you can listen to my sweet New England accent made better by my cold. In reality though you can see the warmer of the month for May 2013 and check out the sweet motorcycle warmer, and the other choices.

Finally I have the sweetest husband possibly ever. When the bad stuff went down on Saturday and we both got really scared I did not want to leave bed. We were both really hungry though and so Dan got me dinner in bed!

I was craving chicken alfredo and this one was SO good!! Plus a baking sheet is the answer to your prayers when you don’t want to spill on your sheets!

Finally in the bad news world NO MORE RUNNING UNTIL BABY K IS HERE!!!!!

I would rather not chance it and I knew it was coming after my last Doctor’s appointment. I can still go on walks so I am looking forward to starting those tomorrow! Does anyone want to walk with me, I find walking SUPER boring because its slow. I love running speed intervals because you change pace, but I doubt I am allowed to do pace changes. Unless I go slower…..so yea looking for a walking buddy!

That is what the Karnolt’s have been up to! What have you been up to in my absence?!?!?!

Sunday Shenanigans and Other Such Things….

24 Mar

For those of you who follow my Baby K updates you know today is our 19th week sharing my body. But this is not the Baby K update, that will happen tomorrow.

See I had a very long and tiring weekend and I am probably going to bed at around 8-830pm, judge me if you must but it will be glorious! So here is a rundown of random weekend events and things I think you need to know about!

IMG_3638 IMG_3637

I put together a scentsy bag, this is literally my everyday purse right now and what I take with me everywhere. I have my phone, a small wallet and the rest is Scentsy, my binder, day planner, old and new catalogs. Then I have product in case someone doesnt know what Scentsy is. Wax, a warmer, a scent circle, a room spray, travel tin and body spray. I think I am set for any on the go sales!

Yesterday we had a funeral to go to. Some people we are very close to….basically our 2nd family lost their father and it was a very sad day for everyone. The nice thing was my Dad bought me a coffee, this was my one for the week. So I figured Dad needed his own photo on the blog with my treat :). Thanks again Daddy!

That brings us to today. Dan and I went to breakfast together. I knew I would not be eating lunch as I had a lot of things planned so I ate one of my FAVORITE but most fattening foods of all time….

IMG_3643 IMG_3642

Biscuits and gravy for me! Then I had Dan take a picture which came out terrible for me, I guess I was tired all day and never noticed it…..until this picture and now that is! Also I was trying not to fall off the stool we were on.

After breakfast Dan and I went our separate ways. He to go mountain biking and me to head here.

I needed some new clothes. You will certainly be able to see why when I do my 19 week update. Maybe I will even model some things for the blog ;).

After I got home it was time for a major cleaning. I did all the floors downstairs and cleaned the kitchen, that is a big deal since our kitchen is our catch all and the heart of our house. However I feel really accomplished that I got it done. Time for bed….and NO ONE SPOIL WALKING DEAD FOR ME!!! I will be watching tomorrow night.

A Different Kind Of Birthday Post…

5 Dec

(I pre-typed this post as well, you will know why when you read it so my workout from today will post tomorrow)

If you are a new reader you DON’T know that back when it was Dan’s, My Grandma and Harry’s (brother) birthdays I did special posts for them that celebrated their days. Well I did. But today is a different story. It is still someone’s birthday but someone who my family misses very much and is not here to celebrate the day with us.

My Grandfather, who I am named after passed away 12 years ago in December right after his birthday and the night of his birthday party. It was a very trying event as you would imagine, but harder on Harry and I as we were 15 and 13 respectively. It was also the first person who had died that we were really close to. Which is tough to handle as a kid.

He was the best guy, funny and silly, and ruthless with sports (probably why Harry and I love them and are so competitve). He would do inspections of our rooms after we cleaned them and made sure our beds were made correctly. (He lived next door and was one of our best friends, the other being Grandma of course). He also taught us how to count to ten and swear in Russian which I still think is cool to this day!

So today I celebrate my Grandfather in the best way possible!

Eating family dinner at Grandma’s with my Aunts, Harry, Mom, Dad, Dan and Finny!

Which is why this is a pre-post and not one written today. I would rather spend my time with family than worrying about negative splits, treadmills, logging everything I eat, etc. Thursday  I will and I am sure while I am on the treadmill today I will as well. But when I am with our family tonight we will be happy and laughing and thinking about this handsome guy…

Grandpa and Grandma on their wedding day!

We love and miss you Grandpa and will never forget you!

 

Love,

Lets play catchup!!!

29 Nov

So I didn’t post Tuesday or Wednesday, so lets get to that first then get into why….here we go

TRAINING TUESDAY! 

This was a Jeff workout day and I was TIRED after my legs were wobbly and my arms were tired. So you know the squats and weights were effective!!! Because I have a race Sunday I took the day off from running to be prepped for race day!!! But the rest of the day was like this…

Breakfast was a bagel from a local place Dan and I love but I wouldnt have passed on one of these either…though it looks more like a dessert than a muffin.

Yes that says Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Muffins, but they look like cupcakes, and while we were waiting for our breakfast they were both purchased by other people….smart people 🙂

We also saw this and I had to agree and laugh..though in our house I LOVE FOOTBALL and am a crazy rabid fan!

And here is Dan modeling his awesome hat I got him for everyone!!!

WACKY FACT WEDNESDAY!

On Wednesday we were off from work because my Great Uncle passed away and it was his funeral. This is why I did not post, between the wake Tuesday and the funeral and birthday Wednesday it was a busy and rough couple of days. My great Uncle was very close to us and was like another Grandfather so it was very hard, but glad to know he is finally not sick and at peace.  It was also my Sister in Laws actual Birthday so the following are all random items from those two events. With some exciting news at the end!

1.) Here are some old pictures from the collage my Aunt made for my Uncles wake:

This first picture is of my Cousin Stacy on top my Aunt Tamarra and Mom (please not her hair)  from left to right, and my Cousin Kathy on the bottom middle and my Aunt Kim on the end. I am not really sure but I think the Adult is my Aunt Evelyn though my Grandmother and her sisters look alike so….

This picture features from left to right Uncle Jackie, me in baby form, my Dad and the back of my Mom’s head. GO 80’s Hair!!

2.) I ate lots of yummy food yesterday, well I didnt eat everything pictured as my stomach would have exploded but I tried my hardest.

Not sure how, but this picture got put first, even though it should be second…oh well. This was the dinner last night for Noelle’s bday feast! The chicken is wonderful and her FAVORITE so it was not the first time I have had it and will not be the last. Those Karnolt children love their chicken!!! Chicken Parm is Dan’s Favorite.

This is the food my Mom prepared for the funeral. She is such a great cook and made enough food to feed 40 people in one night. I volunteered to help but she said she had it. I did end up having to share this plate with Dad as my “Head was bigger than my stomach” a quote from him, I know he meant eyes, its just funnier that way. 

Finally the birthday treats. Rum cake and Chocolate Vegan cake, which has graced the blog a few times! Plus a scoop of vanilla. I wish I could say that I did not eat all of this, but I did. Thank god I had a Jeff training session this morning!!!

3. 

Happy birthday party people! I really like the candles used on the cake! Oh yes, the man whose face I took a very close up of is my father in law.

And here is Dan enjoying his dessert with his “second wife” Cheryl. She is a pretty cool lady! I don’t mind her sharing Dan with me ;).

So overall it was a great night, Mom K took a picture of us, but I dont have it to post on the blog, so you will have to settle for my baby picture!

Finally the Exciting news!!! After a few months of selling and recruiting within my Scentsy Business I have EARNED THE VACATION THEY HAVE AS AN INCENTIVE!!! I will not know where we will be headed until later. The trip has different choices which you make based off of how many points you have! I am still very excited and so glad I joined Scentsy and work hard at it!!!

Some disappointing news and a little bit of sarcasm!

8 Oct

You know when I get disappointed I have to add some sort of sarcastic humor to it! So I will NOT be running the ING Hartford Half marathon this weekend major sadness!!!!

I went to the doctor today because I have been seriously battling a cold turns out its a sinus infection mixed with bronchitis…..YEA BAD NEWSSSSS!!!!! Also now that I am on these bad mamajammas I cannot be running!

Let me just say the tiny clear cough medicine drops that say may cause drowsiness will knock you the heck out! I am on each type of medicine for 1 week…..NO Race, especially since I do not want to be passing out running or making it two miles and actually coughing up a lung. Plus the Dr told me I couldn’t my eyes may have watered and my voice may have gotten a bit shaky when he told me no. BUT I know that if I hadnt gone to the doctor I would have run it no matter what because you cant be a whimp! So it is for the best!

Plus there is ALWAYS next year in which I plan to run the marathon portion and not the half, so I can kick its butt even harder! Also there is always another race and I will run a second half before the year is out! I am officially addicted to the distance and will conquer it….Half Marathons Will be my bitch 🙂

Sorry maybe its the medicine talking I did take one of the magical coughing pills….so goodnight friends and if you are running the half or marathon good luck to you! I will still be picking up my bib and going to the expo because WHY NOT RIGHT!!!!!
