Currently and Mini-Me!!

Hey gang!  I'm joining the Currently band wagon......I'm only number 2024!!!!!  Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating  just a little but not!  My girl Farley is a rock star!!!

So my faves......we are just about finished redecorating our living room.  It has been a long, lengthy process but I am loving it!!  (long and lengthy because I'm a spaz and can't focus and change my mind 100 times!!)  Just a few more details and it's done.  We got new furniture....a couch and a chair...(my house is small).  Well, the couch is hubs territory....I have always had a chair.   Well my new chair is a chair and a half......Have ya heard of those?????  It's's's makes my butt feel smaller.....LOL!  

I'm LOVING running!  I started running over the summer.  Started ran a block, had a heart attack.....caught my breath, ran again, gasping for air............and repeat!
Well, I can now run 2 1/2 miles without stopping and don't get winded at all!  I love it.  It helps me with any anxiety I have, helps me clear my head, and get ideas:)  I've lost 36 pounds by running and eating better.  I still have a ways to go but am on my way:)

My last fave is my new mini-me!!!  Nikki, from Melonheadz made me and I love her/me!!!!
What's that in my hand you ask??????  COFFEE of course!!!  So cute!  Thanks Nikki!!!  Love her/me!!
Now, if someone can tell me how to add her right next to my signature at the end of my posts, I would be oh so happy!!

If you hurry, you can be 2025 in Farley's linky!!
Oh' boy fourth grade

    1. Thanks Kelly!!
      I just did my own thing...I started with walking and then ran a block and walked and just kept on adding the running...longer and longer each time:)

  3. Man, you are a rock star! Good for you! I really need to run or do something to help with my anxiety too. It's a great way to destress. :)

  4. Your mini- me is so cute! I am so proud of you running 2.5 miles without stopping. I'm aiming at exercising at least 30 minutes a day.

  5. Love your mini-me! How can you love running?! I've tried and tried! Maybe it's because it's like a billion degrees in Austin!

  7. Ok, the running thing keeps crossing my path...I think God is trying to tell me something. I am thrilled for you! I hope you are having a great beginning of the year!

  8. I am so proud of you, Tara!!! You keep me on track. I think to myself all the time, "I wonder if Tara ran today?" and it makes me get my butt in gear:) Thanks for being an inspiration in so many ways! Love ya, girl! And your mini-me, too;)

  9. Tara!!! Oh my goodness, that is amazing!! Good for you!! I am totally the opposite... I love working out, but not running! Well, sprints are fun, but long distance not so much!! You are impressive! And your mini-me is toooo cute!! I love it!! I want a mini-me too!! I just found Nikki's stuff recently and love all of her fabulous creations! Talk to you soon friend!
