Meet Mila Anne

Yep, I’m still alive and livin’, just haven’t had time to blog lately.

And why is that? Because I’M AN AUNT!

Mila Anne Cabalka was born at 8:27pm on Thursday, June 13th. I am in love with my little niece! And we have the same initials! BFF's already.

My brother got to celebrate his first Father's Day on Sunday. Mila wore the perfect outfit for the occasion.

I wouldn't be exaggerating one bit if I said this is the cutest family on the planet. Lauren (my sister-in-law), Mila and Jeremy (brother)

I am always so busy during the week so I haven’t seen Mila much. I’m already going through withdrawal. So I plan on spending plenty of quality time with her this weekend. AND she gets to meet her Uncle Bennet tonight! This girl is the most loved human already.

Alright, I’ll stop drooling over my niece now.

Of course, I’ve thrown running into the mix as well. Last weekend I ran the Rock ‘n’ Sole and did the entire thing with my friend Mel. I skipped out on my long runs the 2 previous weekends, so I went into this half a tad nervous. But I seriously felt great. Miles 1-10 were a cinch. The last 3 weren’t pretty, but that’s when Mel came to rescue and pushed me along. I sure do love that girl.

Happy weekend, friends. Enjoy the beat:

It’s been 2 weeks since my last post so I figure I’m due for an update.

Pretty Pregnant Mamma

I do have some exciting news! I don’t think I’ve mentioned that my sister-in-law (Lauren) is preggers and due on June 13th. I’m ecstatic. We had her first baby shower last Saturday and now I’m even more excited than I already was. I just want this little nugget to get here already! Lauren and Jeremy aren’t finding out the sex so the suspense is killing me.

I think I’ve gone over our family ties before but if not…

Lauren’s younger sister is Emily. Emily is my best friend in the whole wide world, who unfortunately lives in Denver. When Emily and I were in high school, we hooked her sister up with my brother. They started dating…Jeremy moved from AZ to Wisco to be with her…he FINALLY popped the question…they got married in Mehico last year (NYE 2012)…and now they’re poppin’ babies.

Other than fun baby news…there isn’t much new, which is why I haven’t posted. I’ve been running. The girls doing the half in Iowa City in May with me have been running. This is our latest motivation and maybe our race-day outfits:

And lastly…weddings. Weddings, weddings, weddings. Weddings galore. Am I the only one on this planet that is not getting married this year? Anyway, I got my invitation to Gretchen’s wedding yesterday. I LITerally got giddy. This wedding is going to be a big ‘ol college reunion and I can’t wait.

That’s all for now. Enjoy this new beat…different than the indie loveliness that I usually post but still wonderful. Meet Timeflies:
