Hope you all have a great day! I'm off to Vegas today to take Kylie home but I'll try to blog while I'm gone.


  1. Open a bakery is probably my favorite thing on your list :) That sounds amazing! I also love how much you love racing!

  2. I agree with Meg. I'd love to own or even just work in a bakery. Almost everyone who comes in is celebrating something! Must be a happy place to be.

  3. Can we travel to Australia together?!?!!?

  4. You want to open a bakery?!?! DO IT, SISTER! What are you waiting for? Take a risk!! I know you'd be a success :) Husband and I have been in a transitional season where we have decided to chase our dreams, no matter the cost. Husband wants to make films and I dream of having a successful quilt shop on Etsy.. they're odd goals, but if we don't try, we will always wonder! Since we don't have children yet, now is the perfect time to take a risk! Be encouraged :) doooo it!

  5. Safe travels! I like your travel goals. I'm dying to go to Ireland!

  6. You are my blog crush too! Is it creepy that I have an icon for your page on my iPhone..?
    I love your lists! Australia is one of my places too! I'm hoping that since we're going to Hawaii, we might be able to get over there!

    Have a safe trip to Vegas!!

  7. Vegas!!! I want to vist home so bad. But getting 3 kids there from Alaska does not seem fun at the moment. haha :) Say hello to the sunshine and warmth for me.

    1. You definitely have your hands full, I know it's tough to get home. Hugs!

  8. I think opening a bakery would be so fun! I hope you can accomplish it one day!

  9. Awww - you're totally a blog crush of mine too. I love how your blog touches all subjects. Always something new.

    Plus, anyone who can run that much and still make homemade ice cream is pretty fab in my book!

  10. Bakeries are awesome, especially the German ones ;-) I spent the last days of my vacation filling up my freezer chest with baked goods for days when I don't have the time to bake fresh...

  11. I want to come to your bakery when you open it ... so get on it!!!

  12. Drag racing?? You never cease to amaze me, lady!

    1. Haha thanks! I have been around it my whole life, it's awesome!

  13. Hello, sweet Jen! :) I was so excited to see my blog tagged in this post! Reading your blog has been such an uplifting experience and your powerful positivity has always been an inspiration. I can't wait to pass on the fun. THANK YOU!! :)) Have a fabulous night and beginning of the week, dear friend!

  14. I would love to go Italy, Australia, and Alaska.

    I would want to go Germany too -- that is where my Grandpa served too! What was he in like which branch of military?

    Opening a bakery would be fun but I think I may eat all of it before could sell LOL.

    Munchkin and Military is one of my crushes too! she is awesome!!!!!

  15. Those are great lists! I'd love to travel the world too. There's so much to see!

  16. We just watched Tombstone! Such a great movie (All your favorite movies are great choices). Except I haven't seen Silence of the Lambs. We have it, but I haven't been brave enough yet to try it...

  17. Huh, I wouldn't have pegged you for a drag racer ;)


Love hearing from you!! :)
