Wow that all went entirely too quickly.

I was on a bit of a hiatus but I'm going to attempt to get back into this.

I'll try to plan a few posts a week, hopefully daily as things get more in a routine for me.

Does anyone have any things they would love to read about? Let me know in the comments!

Citrus Lane - First "Baby Purchase"

I'm super excited - I finally purchased my first real "baby" item (besides some odds & ends diapers/wipes when there has been awesome sales). I signed up for Citrus Lane!

Has anyone tried Citrus Lane?

Citrus Lane is a monthly "box" subscription (which to me reads Christmas on my doorstep once a month), packed with age & gender specific items for your little one. Since our baby's sex is still a surprise, I ordered the gender neutral box. It is supposed to arrive around August 18th. 

I'm so very excited to see what it holds!

I'd love to hear anyone's perspective, so please feel free to add it in the comments.

Also, if you're looking to purchase, go thru Swagbucks, On the offer wall - you can get 1000 swagbucks, which is equal to two $5 Amazon gift cards. You can also use code TAKEHALF which takes 50% off the purchase price when purchasing thru Citrus Lane. You can cancel at any time - the code worked for me let me know if it worked for you!

New Beginning!

A new beginning. Aren't all beginnings "new"? That might be an oxymoronic statement. 


I'm a huge fan of blogging. There are several bloggers I follow daily (confession - sometimes *gulp* hourly). A few of my favorites are listed below:
Perfect for all things fashion, beauty, and life! I love following her tutorials and reading her beauty product reviews.
Perfect for life perspective, thoughtful financial advice, and practical homemaking tips!
This is probably the one I frequent the most - Collin posts very regularly and always has the hottest deals, which often sell out quickly, so I hate missing anything.

Lately, I've been thinking how much I'd enjoy blogging for both my own personal "journal of sorts" as well as to share ideas and research with others. I love searching for product reviews & finding a whole blog post dedicated to them.

I've chosen the name "Run to Add Life to Your Days". In a non-figurative sense, I love to run & I do it for many reasons, physical, emotional, mental. My days are so much more relaxed when I have time for a run - or at this time - per my doctor's instructions "a brisk walk" as I'm expecting our first baby in January. But beyond the face value of that statement, is how I am trying to look at my life. I want to "run" in life to add "life" to my days. I don't want to RUN through life & miss all that it has to offer, I want to run in a manner so that more life is added to my days. I hope to record some of the "life" I find in my days here.

I plan to blog about products, subscriptions, magazines, my two dogs, my journey through pregnancy, and whatever else I think would be beneficial for others. I hope everyone enjoys beginning to follow my blog & please share with your friends. Comments and advice is always welcome.

Hope to see you return!
