In Her Shoes

Tackling my bucket list, one half marathon at a time.



I’m a disgrace. I haven’t blogged since May. But in my defense, my last post was the greatest post ever and I wanted that to be the most recent post forever and ever. If you didn’t read it, go back and please do so.

I will not bore you with excuses of why I haven’t written. I’ll just leave it at this:

Lake living


Besides lake living, I’ve been (attempting to) plan a wedding! I know we still have a year until the Big Day, but I get anxious when I think of all there is to be done. Because I like lists and they make me feel more accomplished, here we go:


  • Date (8/15/15)
  • Venue (Pleasant View Golf Course)
  • Photographer
  • Day-of Planner
  • Wedding dress!
  • Wedding party
  • Honeymoon (St. Lucia!!!!)

Big To-Dos

  • Videographer
  • DJ
  • Hotels for guests
  • Shuttles
  • Food!

Let me just say, if you live in the Madison area, I really, really welcome your suggestions for anything on the to-dos list. Especially a videographer.

I won’t bore you with wedding details so I’ll move onto another thing keeping me occupied: running.

I have my 2nd half of 2014 next weekend: the Madison Mini. I feel like a wimp compared to last year (6 half marathons, 1 full marathon). I hate that my priorities have changed, but I just didn’t find the time to travel for halves this year. I’d like to say maybe 2015?? However, 2015 will be the Year of Weddings amongst my friends and I. Oh well, I’m still getting the miles in, just not in official races.

*Break from writing*

I just started thinking, “I am rambling on about things people probably don’t care about. What did I used to post about?”

Well, running. So I went back and looked at my post about my marathon last November. After reading it, I have a minor inkling to sign up for the Madison Marathon in November. I said minor, people. Minor. We’ll see how I feel after the half next Saturday. And if I’m really crazy enough to sign up.

What a random blog post. See you again in another 3 months.

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:
