Christmas brings out my inner child

Christmas Eve

after stopping my youngest brother Jake in the dark hallway of our home

Me: so...what time are you waking up...?
Jake: (cocking his head to the side eyes narrowing) what time are YOU waking up...?
Me: I asked you first...
Jake: 3AM I WILL be the first one to the stockings
Me: I am waking up at four...Ill wake you up and we can go through the goods together
Jake: Deal, see you in the morning

later that night around 2:30AM restless I wake up first confused and then realizing what day it is...first clear thought....SANTA!!!!!

I crept into Jake's room  woke him out stockings...decided it was best not to sort the stockings and returned to bed


Me: (waking up early from anticipation again) CHASE! wake up its christmas!
Chase: (a little confused) what time is it?
Me: hurry!!!! were late!!!! we have to get over to your house now!!!!
Chase: (eyes still closed) okay okay

upon arriving at the Moffat household we discovered no one was awake

and no one was awake for another 45 minutes

thats okay....

yes, I am in fact a child

my favorite Christmas present?

I GOT A FORT KIT! genius

Chase's favorite gift?

A signed LaMichael James football jersey. FROM ME!

I shaved off my eyebrow

So....I may or may not have shaved off part of my eyebrow this morning...

you're probably thinking one of many things

things like...

how in the world is that possible girls don't even use razors on their face?
if you did nick your precious eyebrow hair somehow did you slash your BEAUTIFUL face open?
do you resemble the population of gangstas and thugs out there?

well let me clarify by sharing my story

there I was in the shower, it was a shower like most showers, but little did I know that todays shower was different.  Todays shower would temporarily alter my life


I initially thought that I accidently got the end of my eyebrow but after feeling my eyebrow and checking for blood I thought all was well

but then I got out of the shower.....looked in the mirror...started screaming for my mom

she came running, started banging on the door and when I opened it, she started laughing.

there is a definite chunk of hair missing out of my eyebrow

thank goodness for eyebrow pencils you can hardly tell

If I could convince Chase we would be outta here!!

ps our shower is spouting black stuff and so I refuse to shower... anyone know why its doing that and how we can make it stop?  

otherwise I am going to go home hippie style with dreads and only small efforts towards my hygiene

New Years Eve (The Movie)

I am happy to say I loved it!

Every Wednesday night my Husband laces up his basketball shoes and hits the courts with our good friend Derek Hull.

Where does this leave myself and Dereks' lovely wife Debbie?

welp sometimes it leaves us cuddled up on the couch watching friends/ doing homework/ researching pinterest

sometimes it leaves us wondering the isles of Hobby Lobby with the DIY crafts from pinterest fresh in our minds

TONIGHT! (after Debbie finished up her last final) we wound up at the movie theaters!!!

after purchasing our tickets, might I add that Debbie almost made her almost snuck in Mike&Ikes fall out of her purse while searching for her debit card, we headed into an empty theater!!!!!

why it was empty I do not know because I certainly loved this movie

It wasn't cheesy like we expected!  It even made me tear up a few times:) AND it reminded me of how much I like to dance my face off!

so I am recommending this movie for the fun loving free spirits out there.

Run hard or run home

I am happy to say.

after three years and countless miles on my beloved cross training asics.  I have at long last retired them (something that really should have been done long ago)


Merry Christmas to me!!!!!

I got these

You probably have heard about these
the Nike Free Run 2 
They really are everything people say they are

I seriously considered getting the Nike Free TR
they look cooler and have great reviews
but unfortunately these fit my feet better
(not that I don't seriously love them)
and I hear they really mold to your foot well

Thank you Mr. Moffat!!!!!!!

Things are looking up my friend


It's so satisfying finding something perfect for someone.  Not just something that they want.  But something with meaning!
I feel like I have been doing drugs.
I wish I could go into detail of what I have figured out so far!
But that would spoil it...I think...lets see if I can make it all the way to Christmas without spilling my guts.

YOU have the power

Today I was at the gym feeling sorry for myself because my knee has begun hurting


In hobbles a man with a severe limp shoes flung over his shoulder and a huge smile on his face,  this man who has a handicap was so happy that he had the chance to take care of his body despite the appearance  of having some limitation.

that was enough to switch my train of thought and snap me right out of it.

look people, it is so important that we take care of our bodies. Why? the most simple reason is that Heavenly Father gave them to us.

Want to know more reasons?  I am sure that if you tried you could think of many yourself


I have two parents who did for a time severely neglect their bodies.  They are both wonderful people who have taught me so much about what kind of person I want to be and should strive to be everyday.

However I have watched and learned the effect that neglecting your body can have long term and short term.  I can tell you right now that as so many sins can be...its not fair.  It's not fair to your own body,  The limitations that you put on your body can be minor or major but either way they are LIMITATIONS. Who wants that?  YOU SET THE EXAMPLE.  It's not fair to the people you love and that love you.  Do you know what it's like to watch someone you love deteriorate?   I have a testimony that some hard things really do happen for a reason, no one can help it.  But saying that, OTHER hard things happen because we have lead ourselves down that path, God always has a plan and has the ultimate control but is it fair to him to ask him to protect our lives and then get in the car and not fasten our seat belt? 

With Gods help you have the power and the tools to be healthy.

What tools?

The internet!!!! holy smokes there is a whole heap of information for you.

ask a friend who seems to have it down.  ----people who have really understand the importance of health are DYING to share it,  they have become that much closer with heavenly father and chances are the recognize that this can be their own way of helping change the world---

lets promote my Mama who is now a health coach after losing 100+ lbs and is still going strong

make a plan!  write down what you eat! don't even buy junk foods! make a budget and stick to it!

and if anyone actually reads this and they don't know what they should be doing or where to start call me. seriously.  Chase may wish I would keep brownie mix in our cupboard now but I know he trusts me every time I talk about how we are protecting ourselves from so much sorrow choosing a healthy lifestyle.

I hope no one gets confused because I am def not perfect.  I love a good birthday cake and the chocolates Deb keeps in her candy bowl are hard to resist but I have a goal, I have support, and its important to me.

Thanks for reading my rant.

Thats life

I was just thinking (something that is hard to do when you work graves...I have also heard it's hard during and after pregnancy...not that there is a bun in the oven)

Life is this big amazing thing.  There are so many opportunities, cultures, activities, information and much more available for us to participate in, learn about and experience. It's all about what we want and what we do about what we want, right?
It always blows my mind that the more I learn, the more I realize that there is SO MUCH to learn about anything and everything. 

Why do people forget that God put so much beauty, life and complexity into everything and if they take a step back they might catch a glimpse of their own potential?

I know for me, sometimes I get so wrapped up in my own SMALL, seemingly busy life, that I forget how big and beautiful the world is and how amazing the people and things that God put everywhere are. 

When I remember to step back I see a girl that I really love, that has such potential, that can make a huge impact.  She can do hard things.  She can love everyone around her.  She can influence and lead other people to be healthy mentally and physically.  She is full of life and energy.    
....How come I forget about her? Because I get wrapped up in stupid details of life that don't matter and that girl gets SMOOSHED.  I really gotta work on that.

What makes me even more sad?  I KNOW so many people are at least similar to me.  

Don't get me wrong.  A lot of people are so good at being so amazing almost always.

GOOD NEWS, I have been directed towards some formulas that really can remedy this tendency to forget.

Read your scriptures EVERYDAY...NO MATTER WHAT. 
Exercise and eat right,  God gave us a body and wants it to be taken are of.
Pray every morning and night, before meals, and whenever you have something to be thankful for (aka always).
Pay attention at church.  Take notes!!!!!!
Listen to music that is soothing.
Don't watch or look at anything you don't want STUCK in your brain.

Maybe some more stuff.  
With all my love.
