theidearoom What is a favorite memory you have of growing up?

Some of my favorite memories of growing up were backpacking trips with the family. My little sister isn't in the picture. I'm the oldest girl and the middle child. Sure does explain a lot #tbt #nicehaircutmom #bangsfordays

  •   amanda_tee My favorite is road tripping with my brothers and my parents! They love to drive. But the music was my fave! Earth, Wind and Fire, James Brown, etc. I sure miss those days! 5d

theidearoom Not sure why I thought it would be a good idea to go running outdoors today...40 mph winds are no joke. But, I had my heart set on going. Let's just say that my Garmin said I ran 3.5 miles...but I'm pretty sure it was more like 5 miles. It was pretty much two steps forward and one step backwards while running into some serious headwinds! Sometimes we bite off more than we can chew or find ourselves in a difficult situation. The only way you can push through it, is to keep going...into the wind. It wasn't pretty...but I got 'er done. And maybe, just maybe, when the wind has calmed, I will run and feel stronger than I did today! Isn't that just how life is sometimes? #runningmetaphor #runyourrace #farmgirlpaints 1w

theidearoom Last week on our cross country RV Trip (see earlier post), we spent the day at the Museum of Science & Industry. We could have spent several days here! The former High School Science teacher in me, loved it. My favorite part was touring the German U-Boat, U-505. I don't think I could live in one of those... !! #theidearoom #accessrv #accessrvrental #museumofscienceandindustry #chicago 2w
