Bucket lists, 10Ks, bachelors and bachelorettes

I think I need to be one of those people that carries around a little notebook.

Over the last two weeks I've had so many fabulous post ideas and witty quips to delight you with, but that's the problem, they're just ideas.

Things have been so utterly busy in the Chubby Vegan household I've hardly had a minute of time to myself. Between our daughter turning three, planning a bachelor/ette combo party for our best friends, running a 10K with my cousin and planning a birthday party for my daughter and niece (they were born the same day 15 minutes apart) over Memorial Day weekend, it's been a very busy May. In fact, June is shaping up to be as busy as well, from a wedding, a birthday party for our best friends' daughter to a half marathon.

Normally, I thrive for business. I enjoy the chaos, burning the midnight oil and all those other cliches, but honestly, I'm ready for a vacation. Speaking of vacation, I'd love to take a mini-family weekend away, but I don't have the slightest clue where we should go. If any of you have taken a long weekend getaway with the family feel free to clue me in on what the best trips to take are!

My cousin and I ran our first 10k this past Saturday. We thought it would be a brilliant idea to work our way up to the half marathon we're running in October. Which, it kind of was, except for the fact that I'm scared to death to double the amount we just did. If 6.2 miles felt hard then how am I going to get through 13? Despite being both thrilled and scared, I'm excited to cross this off my bucket list. And you better believe I'm going to be getting one of those sticker things for my car.

I don't actually have a bucket list. There are things I know I want to do in my life, it just seems like now is a great time to start them. I'm not quite sure what else will accompany a half-marathon on my list, but I'm going to start honing in on the things that are really important to me.

My husband and I are in a wedding in two weeks. Our best friends are getting hitched and we've got best man and maid-of-honor duties. While we're still tweaking our speeches for the reception, we got to check-off one of the most fun parts about being in their wedding this past weeked: throwing the bachelor/ette party. They opted to have one big ole' throwdown together, so it made it even more fun and convenient to be planning with Chubby Vegan Dad.

Weddings and birthdays have a way of shining light on the simple, but amazing things we should be celebrating the hell out of every chance we get. Sure, Pear might not remember the lengths we've gone to plan a birthday party for her every year, but we know and we'll always have the memories, so that makes it worth it. We'll keep the memories for her when she's too young to remember.

I promise to squeeze a little more blogging time in though, because I've got a lot of fun stuff ahead. And as I mentioned on my Facebook page, I've got a killer giveaway coming up involving Daiya cheese that you don't want to miss.

Unless you don't like Daiya. Which, is basically unheard of.

In the meantime, I'm going to be getting up close and personal with my flip camera. Which means, you guessed it, a whole bunch of vlogging fun headed your way.

Are you on the edge of your seats yet? You should be, we're about to have some fun over here.
