5 on Friday...


Running!  I'm in the final stretch of the #rwrunstreak summer challenge and to be honest it's starting to take it's toll!  Between the heat and running I'm tired!  But almost as if on cue, I received three of the best comments on Instagram (follow me @darci_spear) last night!
How could I say no, right?!  This is why blogging and Instagram are SO great!  To know I've inspired someone...just drives me more and motivates me!  It's win-win!  So let me introduce you to The 60/60 Running Challenge!  Email me at if you want to join in!

Hot summer evenings with great Friends and Neighbors!  Jack had his last tee-ball game last night; I unfortunately missed it because Norah wasn't feeling so hot, but I was given a full report - he did great!  After the game our neighbors right behind us had a pizza party for the all the kids!  We are so lucky to live where we do!  Right behind us is a boy and girl who are just the same age as Jack and Norah, then right beside us there are 2 boys that Jack is in between and then a baby girl that will make an awesome playmate for Norah in another year!  There are literally kids everywhere, it's perfect!
Starting to accept that the number on the scale is just that...a Number...nothing more, nothing less!  The picture below really drove that home for me; all 6 women weigh 154 pounds, the picture shows how we all carry weight differently and that striving to be a certain number doesn't always represent a healthy lifestyle.  Amen!

I'm loving how in the spirit Bean has been about the 4th of July!  This is what she wore to daycare this morning! 
Holy Smokes!  I am going to die a very happy lady, as long as I make it to 8-1-14!  Holla!  Christian Grey on the Big Screen!  I absolutely cannot wait! 

Matt Bomer is my absolute pick to play Christian, hands down!  If anyone other than Alexis Bledel gets the part of Anastasia I will be simply devastated!  These two are the PERFECT Christian and Ana!


Who do you want to play Christian and Ana?  Or do you agree with my assessment?

Have a great weekend, y'all!


  1. Aww,I like them as Christian and Ana!
    Also, count me in for the challenge!

  2. Ong I hadn't heard 50 shades was coming officially I cannot even contain myself!!!! I think they are perfect and I can't believe I never thought about her for Ana!!! Perfect!!!! I'm in on the running challenge!!!!! Whoop whoop!!!

  3. Ok, Im thinking about doing the challenge :) So count me in and I love the idea of Matt Bomer, but I always pictured Ana as a blonde...Im going to think about this one :)

  4. Ian Somerhalder would make a good Christian, but I agree with the one for Ana!

  5. Holla!!! I'm with you Matt Fo sho....but Henry Cahill is looking pretty good too. And Alexis all the way!!!
    I commented on IG but I'm with you for the 60 in 60. I should be able to handle that.

  6. Not even going to PRETEND like I'm not excited for that movie to come out! That casting would be spot-on perfect!

    Thank you so much for linking up with us :)

  7. OMG! Her bow! I think I need a little girl! ;)

  8. OMG - you are spot on with your assessment - I CANNOT wait for the movie - although I don't know how they are going to be able to not give it a porn rating!

  9. Running is great. If you`ve ever had a runners high, you`d be hooked!

  10. I def agree on your choice for Ana, Christian I will have to think about! I am so seriously pumped for that movie! Awesome job on your challenge! I will
    Partake in the 60/60 but with walking and it will probably be more like a 30/60 but woohoo! :) can I borrow beans bow?

  11. Ummmm, I think you are my new BFF!!!!! I LOVE Matthew Bomer & I can't even tell you how devastated I will be if he doesn't play that role!! I also agree with your choice for Ana!!!!!
