Texas Highways

Is there anything better than a beautiful day, on the road, without a care in the world?

I wish every day was this simple.

Home Sweet Home

This is my favorite sight each day - especially on Fridays.

There's nothing like pulling into Parker Road station, end of the DART line, in Plano. Home, sweet home.

Wild Kingdom: Hayley Style

Kelly came in from taking out the trash and said:

A bunny had a lucky escape last night.

Then he took me outside to show where a bobcat unsucessfully pursued a bunny under our fence.

Lucky bunny indeed!

A Redemption Marathon

Last weekend's Houston Marathon was a big run for Kelly and our best friend, J.

Kelly desperately needed a really strong run, a run that said he still had speed and a fighting chance to chase a Boston qualifying time. J wanted to break 4 hours. He said the mission was PR or ER.

Both had logged serious time at the gym, changed their diets and started serious cross training. As a result, both wives had done the same.

We were all - as Kelly noted - in danger of becoming boring old people who could only talk about calorie counts and training routines.

The morning looked promising. Cool(ish) weather. Good sleep. The right fueling the day before.

And as a result, the run was great! Kelly didn't hit the time he was on track for, because the temps increased significantly during the last 10k on the course. But he still logged one of his best times in years. As for John? He beat 4 hour. Barely, but he did it, despite the heat.

We left Houston with two happy guys, both who intend to run the Houston Marathon every year now.

Remembering Christmas Parties of Yore

Apparently, Kelly didn't get the memo that it was a photo booth. He thought it was a kissing booth.

I didn't mind.

Typical Dinner with the Hayleys

Presenting winter weekday quick soup recipe #652 (seriously, I think we've eaten soup nearly every day this week): Broccoli cheese soup with Honey-Baked ham and Chipotle Tabasco.

Doesn't it look wonderful?

But here's the other all-too-frequent part of a Hayley dinner that we usually don't show you:
