Where I’m Going From Here…

Now that the 31 Days series is over, I thought I’d share a little bit of what’s up next for me and this blog!

The 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life Challenge with Crystal and Laura and myself starts today! I may post about it from time to time, but my main role will be Twitter cheerleader {use hashtag #disciplined21} for all you lovelies joining the challenge and tackling a mega-project! Mine involves an e-book. I’m scared. Hold me. {You can still get your ebook and start with us!}

What I Wore Wednesday will be returning and I’ll be sharing a little more about fashion as a mom in a fun new place. Stay tuned…

I’m getting ready now for Truth in the Tinsel! If I don’t start now, I will be frantically trying to gather supplies in the midst of the already-crazy holiday season. I’m trying to prevent that with all I am. I’m also printing out the brand new Truth in the Tinsel printable ornaments to use on the days when a craft just isn’t going to happen. Have you seen them?! SO cute.

I’m revisiting and reworking my mission statements. Thanks to Kat, I have a mom mission statement that I wrote over two years ago, so I’m going back to it, praying over it, tweaking it, and working on LIVING. IT. OUT.

I also have a mission statement for how I take care of our home thanks to Sarah Mae’s 31 Days to Clean. It’s been tucked away in a binder, but I’m pulling that out again because I need to read those words more often!

And God has given me the gift of a clarified vision for this little blog space. I am praying I follow that vision with every post!

Oh yeah, and I signed up for a half-marathon. On Thanksgiving morning. With The Hubby. And it’s a TRAIL run. Who is this woman, seriously?! Please pray for me…

How about a few of my favorite pics from the last month just to wrap this up nicely?

Baby brother being loved on {and wondering what is going on?!} at the pumpkin patch!

Big J trying out fall soccer.

My Avengers trick or treating at the hospital.

Pumpkin faces and silly faces.

My first 15K this past weekend. Small race, but this was good enough for first in my age group!

So, friends, how was your October? What are you looking forward to in November?

  1. you so inspire me !!

  2. Woman, you rocked that 15K! I remember encouraging to do the Couch to 5K program.I never finished, so you’ve put me to some serious shame. I’m determined to give it another go after this next baby is born (and I’m fully recovered, pretty sure I pushed it too early ladt time…)
    Anyhoo, love your heart and your vision. You go, girlfriend! (((Hugs)))

    • Oh, you’ve totally got it Ali! Birthing that many babies automatically makes you a rock star who can do anything! Thanks for cheering me on, friend!

  3. Wow! What an incredibly inspiring post. I have been following your running journey and wanted to stop in and share how much you have encouraged me. I had a feeling you might be training for a half-marathon since you have mentioned so many long runs. I plan to do one too in February. That is if I can get over my issue with running outside in the cold.

    Look forward to seeing how it goes!

    • Thanks so much Tara! I really didn’t think I was training for a half, but I kind of got on a roll! Now it seems to make sense to get it in before winter fully sets in! Looking forward to hearing how your training goes!

  4. You are one busy lady! Looking forward to working through the 21-Day Self-Discipline Challenge with you and all the other participants too! :O)

  5. Wow! What a month ahead for you, Erin! Love all the sweet photos! 🙂

  6. I joined in with the 31 days of JOY~ Changing the look up a bit.

    Nice place… its been awhile….


  7. Looking forward to What I Wore Wednesdays! Sounds like fun. Good luck with the half marathon trail run this month. You are awesome, but I will pray for you anyway:-)
