Avon 39 – On the Walk Essentials

Tackling the 39.3 miles of the Avon 39 is no joke but you'll definitely be better off if you are well prepared.

In a week, I will be headed to Washington, DC to walk my third Avon 39 walk. I'm not as well prepared as I've been in the past, but I think it will be okay. For me, finishing all 39.3 miles always comes down to what's in my head (and heart). I mean, at some point, you cease to feel your legs anyway. :) One thing I've learned in 12 years of working and walking these events is that you should come armed with certain essentials to make the whole event more pleasant.

Summer Fun & Pool Safety


I received an iSwimband for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. I'm really not sure what happened to this past winter, but it's gone. We've spent a couple of days at the pool already and it's still March. I mean, really?! But here's the thing that troubles me most. My kids aren't great swimmers yet. They are okay (and Luke will wear floaties if I ask him to) but not good enough that I'm willing to take my eyes off of them for Continue Reading

That's apparently what you do when you have small children (that and consume a lot of Capri Sun Roarin' Waters. Some of said shows are really, truly awful. Others aren't so bad. Once Joey went to school, though, things changed a bit. All those outside influences (read: Continue Reading
