Year In Review


Happy one year to us!! It’s amazing to think that I’ve been writing for Runitlikeamom for a whole year- I remember when I was offered the opportunity to apply for this, I thought to myself “Wow, I hope I can keep up!”.  Yet I have. I managed, like all the other ladies on the Runit team, […]

Thanksforgaming Family Fun Night!


What was your family “thing” growing up? For some families, I knew as a kid, it was skiing. For other families (and really lucky kids) it was going to Disney World during winter vacation, every year. For my family, it was board games. We had a deck of playing cards in every drawer, a “to […]

Black Friday Already – UGH!

36 shopping days until Christmas.  Time flies but I feel like it goes especially fast around this time of year.  It seems like every year, stores are putting up their holiday decorations earlier (I saw them before Halloween), you can start listening to holiday music earlier (Channel 17 on Sirius radio) in early November and you can start shopping the […]

Last time I did a Treat Yourself Tuesday post, I wrote about rewarding myself with new workout gear after meeting all of my fitness goals for the week. This time I am talking about treating yourself for no reason at all, other than, you deserve it. Moms are busy – period. From work obligations to […]
