BIG Fairy Saggers! Definitely NOT the Stand Alone Early 20's Variety!

This morning, as I was cleaning up my house, doing laundry, and preparing for a friend to come over, my four year old daughter asked me to draw a fairy costume.  I quickly drew the dress and handed it to her as I made my way up and towards the dishes.  "No Mommy, you need to put the fairy in there!" Per her request, I quickly sketched some almost finished arms and the basic body parts that would extend out of a dress.  


At a second glance, I realized that I had given this fairy some major saggin', tittie slingin', over the shoulder tyin' SAGGERS!  I mean, good grief, this was a picture for a FOUR year old and in my mad sketch, I came up with a fairy that looked like she had 
A. Been well endowed to begin with and 
B. Had nursed at least three kids in her fairy nursing days. 
 She surely wasn't in her perky "stand alone" 20's!  I thought it was facebook worthy.  




Running
Have not done a ton of running but I'm starting to get back into it.  My husband and I hired a sitter so we could run together yesterday.  Just a fun 6.5 miles but mile two was a 6:35 for him and a 6:40ish for me and this was with the last .25 of it uphill (a good size hill too).  I felt awesome about this and so we kept doing short fartleks at about 6 minute mile pace. We then finished our run slow and easy.  Felt awesome to have my running legs on! It is still nice not having anything to train for though.  


Finding Art in Every Day
I was so sick of the name Runninghood yesterday as I was trying to work on the new site I'm doing with my mom.  The Art of Runninghood name just never felt right to me anyway so we changed our site name to Finding Art in Every Day.  I like it much better!  And speaking of that site, we need some new facebook followers over there! Check our our new post:



The Art of Changing Our Space! And the First Few Motherhood Stickletes!


Hope to catch up with so many of you soon!  And be on the lookout for any of those fairies with the large knockers!

  20. My... what a wide ribcage you have there little fairy. (At least that's what you can tell you daughter if she ever questions it. Fairies need more oxygen than humans, right?)

  21. And here I thought that magically fairies would remain perky forever. Sigh.
