These are a few of my favorite things…

Are you singing?  I thought so.

Pinterest has taken the world by storm and I am happily caught right up there with everyone else.  It really is a genius set up.  Have you caught the bug yet?  Follow me on Pinterest here: http://pinterest.com/amylyn/  I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite pins here.

Tim Tebow.  He amazes me.  Even if you don’t agree with him (and I do) you have to repect a man standing up for something in a world where values are hard to find.

I first saw a poster like this in college.  I try to remember everyday how blessed I really am.

Because I want to be the fun house that has the SLIDE by the steps!

Chances are pretty good we’ll never have a slide beside our stairs.  But I could always be the cool mom with a drive-in in the living room.

I pinned this because of these awesome jeans.  O.K.  I’m kidding.  But, look at this brilliance.  Just PVC pipes!  I can’t wait to try this.

What are you doing at 5:30 am?

I bet it isn’t anything as crazy as pushing a truck across a parking lot in the rain or bear crawling through the sand.  But those are two of the many workouts I have been doing for almost six weeks now.  Dan of Akron Canton Adventure Boot Camp leads the best workouts I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of.  I am not exaggerating when I tell you, I LOVE IT.  Most mornings, I meet 10-15 incredible women (and Dan, of course) in the most encouraging, upbeat, and fun atmosphere while we literally work our tails off.

I wasn’t so sure about this idea at first.  5:30?  4-5 days a week?  Really!?  But, I have to tell you, I am sold.  It is a fantastic start to each day and every week I know I am getting stronger.

But the best part really is these people.  I have come to love every single one of them.  There is something amazing about doing something you don’t think you’d ever be able to do with ten other women right beside you encouraging you all the way.

I wish I had more (and better lit) pictures to share

, but when you are “Working out while the world wakes up,” it’s fairly dark.  😉


Last Saturday we left for the Outer Banks and have spent the past week relaxing by the beach.  I have hardly touched my camera despite my best intentions.  But, I did manage to capture a few.

I am working on a tan but as you can see below…I think I’ve only managed to multiply freckles.  Darn it.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of you!  I hope it’s a good one.  Here’s a little peak at my Christmas cards this year.

I hope you are all enjoying family and friends.  Many blessings for today and all of 2011.

What’s that?  Oh, you want to see a picture of my kids and their cousins from tonight?  Well, if you insist…
