Baby Boo-Boo and Already a Resolution Fail!

Well this week was eventful!

My crazy, enthusiastic baby girl got so excited about walking and running that tripped and fell head first into the coffee table.  She cut her forehead and had to get 5 stitches!  Poor thing. I was on my way home from school with my phone on silent when it happened.  When I looked at my phone I saw 11 missed calls from Jason and knew something was wrong.  He likes to say that he wasn’t freaking out but he totally was.

Once the bleeding was taken care of, she didn’t even seem to notice it because she is so tough!  She was actually more angry about having to sit still than about being hurt.  Jason said that he thinks she’s going to be an athlete since she gets hurt, gets back up, and wants to keep playing.

I’m really mean and I call her “Franken-baby” now….maybe I’m insensitive. She’s still the cutest though, so it’s ok!



In other news, my new years resolution of waking up at 5 am was a total bust!!  I tell Jason every night to kick me out of bed.  So in the morning when he follows through with his end of the deal, I get angry, whine about it, and then go sleep on the couch for another hour! The 5 am version of myself is 5 years old.

I did do it ONE day though. And there’s really only one way I’ll ever do it again.  I have to have my clothes ready to go the night before…


…my pre-workout drink and post-workout breakfast/coffee needs to be ready to go and calling my name…


…and I have to have some good reading material that I look forward to catching up on.


On Monday, all of these things lined up and I managed to get my lazy butt out of bed.  I’m always super proud and impressed with myself when I finish my workout.  I feel like such a big kid with my life together instead of the shambly mess that I really am.


And for some dental humor:

There is a tongue condition that is called “scrotal tongue.”  I’m not lying. (It’s not as gross as it sounds (unless you’re grossed out by the mouth in general, then it’s probably not your cup of tea)).

And to go with the scrotal tongue, we have special sanitation precautions that we use for the x-ray sensors…..


Interpret it as you will.


Ps. Jason and I did Insanity’s Plyometric Cardio workout last night and it almost killed me…and now I can’t move.


Goodbye for now Utah! Hello Oklahoma!

Now that the holidays are over my little family and I flew back to Oklahoma.  The hubby and I both grew up in Utah so it’s hard to leave those mountains.

Fun fact: even though he grew up in Utah by the mountains, the hubby has never been skiing or snowboarding! He’s actually part Hawaiian so he doesn’t even know how to stand in snow without falling 😉  This picture was right before he proposed to me in snow shoes, on top of a water tower, on top of a mountain….we aren’t always the most traditional.Image

Ok ok, he can stay standing in the snow, but only if he’s holding onto me for support because I’m so big and strong…ha!  Image

Now for a brief holiday recap: We had an amazing time camping out at my parents cabin living  the life of luxury at my parents mountain lodge. There were 10 adults, 8 children (all under the age of 7) and 5 dogs staying in one home for the holidays. Can you say chaos?! I loved it!

(I love this picture because my parents look like they are so overwhelmed by the craziness!) Image

We all got matching pjs with butt flaps which we all looked super sexy in! Throw in a nerf gun war and you have some serious cool-factor happening. (He might kill me for posting this picture).


It was good to be around family after spending 10 days home alone studying for my dental board exam *cringe*  Dental students take their boards during their second year of school and it covers general anatomy, dental anatomy, physiology, embryology, biochemistry, microbiology, and pathology. The thing is a beast! My cat, Moo, thought that I should just quit studying and start napping.  Image

I’ll find out in a couple of weeks if I passed or not.  Send good vibes my way pretty please!

With the stress that the holidays can bring and the stress from my board exam, I was so happy to have this little girl to remind me to enjoy the magic of a little holiday cheer. She makes everything better 🙂


She was really excited to see Santa… and then she cried when she finally got to sit on his lap. Typical.

Now I’ve gotta go watch my Oklahoma Sooners whoop up on Alabama in the Sugar Bowl! <<Knock on wood>>


My first blog post!

Well hello there, blogger world! I’ve been a super secret blog stalker for a while now.  For some reason 2014 seemed like the right time for me to join the cool kids and start a blog of my own! 

It feels kinda awkward writing my first blog post…like a blind date or something…so I guess I’ll start by explaining my blog name! 

#1 “Mouthy” – ok yes, I can be a little bit of a spitfire at times, but mostly I just like getting all up in people’s mouths.  Get your mind out of the gutter –  I’m in dental school! 


We practice on scary looking machines called “Dexters”

Sometimes I have to let my clinic parter get all up in MY mouth…it can be terrifying.


Ok ok, this is actually just a cleaning (they don’t let us use drills on people for a while) and she’s pretty much so it’s fine!

#2 “Marathon” – I am addicted to marathons.  I’ve ran two full and countless half marathons, and a couple of Ragnar Relays. I haven’t run as much since I had my baby.  I got a stress fracture in my left leg and another one in my right foot.  I don’t recommend it. I hope this blog will keep me accountable for getting back into the swing of things! 


This is after the New Orleans Rock n’ Roll Marathon where I beat my 6’3″ husband by an hour and a half! I had hurt my foot so I still came in 30 min slower than I had hoped but it was a PR none the less! 4:11:47 Next time I go sub-4.

I thought it was hard running with a prego belly…



…but running with a baby in a jogger is way harder! So much respect to moms who do this all the time with multiple kids! 


sorry if you get a headache from this blurry picture!

#3 “Mom” – Well I suppose this is the easiest one to explain. I have a one year old little girl that is the cutest, spunkiest, most opinionated, smartest person I know! But I guess I could maybe be a little bit biased 😉


I know I know, she doesn’t look a thing like me.  It’s really rude! She got gorgeous tan skin and dark hair and eyes like her handsome dad.  


Ignore my crazy hair. Direct your attention to the cute baby and my handsome hubby 🙂

She just had her first birthday and I’m still not ok with the fact that she’s growing up so fast. That’s another reason I wanted to start this blog.  I want to be able to write down, photograph ,and video all the fun stages in her life so that I never forget or lose track of it.  


So there you have the story of my blog name, MouthyMarathonMom.  I like alliterations so the fact that all the words start with an “M” makes me really happy.  

How do I end a blog post? The end?? 

The End.  

Or maybe “The Beginning” is more appropriate. 

The Beginning.
