Ragnar Relay SoCal 2011…

Well the running adventure continued this weekend with the 200 mile, 12 person Ragnar Relay.  My team- “Slow Motion to the Ocean” was great!  Fun, energetic and relaxed people who love running.  We ran from Huntington Beach to Coronado Island in 34 hours.    Here’s some pics from the trip!



The start line.



The route



So happy to be done with my first leg- mid-day…Yorba Linda along the river. 



Some of my teammates at the 1st Major Exchange in Yorba Linda before we split up again.


The campground in Lake Elsinore. Chillin’ and waiting for Van #2 to finish its leg so that we can start on our second legs.


Patty and I getting ready to start on our 2nd leg in Murrieta.  How do you like our safety gear? Smile



Gotta have some bling.



The  driving range in Carlsbad where we “slept” from about 3-5am.


Last leg coming to the point at Torrey Pines.  So thankful that hill is over Smile 



We did it!!!! Go Team Go!

Fun with Chompy and Writing…

A couple of months ago I came upon this website:  Trekaroo.    (Image Source:


This site is incredible! 

Parents provide reviews and suggestions on activities, locations, lodging places etc. that other parents can refer to when planning trips or looking for fun things to do with their kiddos.

Since I’m trying to always be creative in what I do with Chompy, this is right up my alley!  I love looking through great, fun, safe options for Chompy.  I also really enjoy writing reviews and hopefully helping other parents through Chompy and my adventures! 


Check out some of my reviews by searching for MommasMosaic on the website or just look around for cool things to do! 

Maybe you’ll find a new adventure! 

The Big Sewing Project….

So, it was delivered to Lissa today, and therefore, I can post the pictures of my biggest project yet!!! 

I love how it turned out and hopefully she likes it too!  She picked out the best, swirly, fabric ever!

I think it looks pretty good in her beach-y, mountain-y, outdoorsy, beautiful sister’s room!

Celebrate the boy!!!

I'm in the middle of a BIG sewing project, but tonight, I decided that I needed to do a project that I could finish in 1/2 hour. So, in honor of the beginning of MADE's "Celebrate the Boy" I made Chompy a new bib. Even though he is 20 months old, he is a messy, messy eater who needs a bib. So, this can replace the itty bitty baby drool bibs that we still have around in our drawers.

I was drawn to this blog post today, and cannot help but feel like my heart spoke through her.

I think this is why my mommy theme since Chompy was born has been "Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder." E.B. White. In fact, it's framed in his room right now.

Reasons for the lack in posts...

So now that we've been in the house for 7 months, I finally got the motivation to start organizing. So, that's where I've been hiding.


And Here:
(Thanks to my Aunt Danie and Uncle Tom for the AMAZING hand-me-down rugs! They make our floor so much more cozy to race cars and build duplos.)

And here:

And Here:
I've slowly been going through each closet. While they aren't perfect, they are much better and at least everything fits. 'cause if something didn't, then it got tossed or donated.

And...last but not least, in between Chompy and I sending sickness back and forth to each other, we've been trying to get in some good runs that end like this:
