Update in the 'Wood

Hey, strangers! I know I've been MIA but I am finally back home for a while and trying to catch up on life! So, while I'm catching up, here's some catching up on Kaliwood for you!!

10K Training: Officially started this week! I made the mistake of running after dinner and just felt like it was weighing me down. Wasn't the best run but still felt good afterwards! Click here to view my training schedule! I will have to do some re-arranging this week since we are going on a camping trip, but should still be OK. And I should be able to hike/jog while camping.

Which brings me to my next item of business: Yes, I'm going camping. In the middle-of-nowhere West Virginia  And it's like black bear country. Awesome. Somehow Tim convinced me to go along on their annual trout fishing trip. (I must have been 4 glasses of Pinot in when I agreed.)
Pros: Piper is coming as well as our good friends Ash and Dan! And they are bringing their great dane, Duke, whom Piper loves!
Cons: Nature, tents, no modern conveniences, bugs, snakes, bears, dirt, nature....

Growing up, my idea of "camping" was pitching our tent on our living room floor. So, we'll see how this goes. I know my girl, April, feels my pain.

In other news, I went to my friend's wedding last weekend. Isn't it so weird to see someone you've known since you were little getting married?? So crazy, but so fun!

Here's my hurried attempt at an up-do for the wedding that I accomplished in about 15 minutes. There are a couple things out of place, but for the rush I was in, I was pleased with the outcome! Always room for improvement.

In other hair news, sometimes when I curl my hair I do big messy waves that are interlocking and tangled, but lately I've been going with the soft flowing big curls as you see below...

 So I will be doing a tutorial of these coming soon!!

Also, wanted to share my new chevron maxi dress that I recently picked up from a cute local boutique. Love it!!! (Please ignore dirty laundry in the background. Ain't nobody got time for that!)

And because I always feel the need to have a token adorable pet photo, here's Piper after a weekend and the grandparents! #passedout

Have a great day!



  1. My boyfriend is from Virginia and keeps thinking he is going to take me camping. Ummm unless we take all the comforts of home, I'm not seeing it.


  2. Your up-do and your curls look great!


  3. I can't believe you did that in fifteen minutes. It's gorgeous!
