Why Lindsay’s List??
Making lists keeps me sane! Whether it’s a list to keep my day organized or things to pick up at the grocery store, I find myself making a list all the time.
Plus, it makes it a WHOLE lot easier to write up a quick blog post.
Wanna know more??
Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE reading your comments, so please keep them coming!
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
LOVE the new layout/design of your blog. I’ve been reading it on my ipad and haven’t seen the full thing till now. Teach me your ways!
lol..thanks! this is all Travis’ doing – I know nothing about blog design.
Not to be a creeper, but saw your lazy couponing post and noticed your receipt said Franklin. I actually live in Bryson City! I have friends who coupon, and they love it and have tried to teach me, but honestly it seems like too much effort. But using Southern Savers like you suggest to do makes it seem SOOOOO easy. Like effortless practically. I Love It! So, you have given me motivation to try out this couponing thing for the summer at least! I will also be checking out the rest of your blog to see what other cool things you post about!
Well Welcome!!!! I love local readers!
I love lists too! Sometimes when my list seems too daunting for the day, I’ll write, wake up, eat breakfast, eat lunch, make dinner, just so that I can cross SOMETHING off the list! Sometimes I’ll write things down that have already happened, like make bed :) Found you through Janae blog, you commented on her most recent one and I clicked on your name because it said Lindsay’s List and I like lists :) Nice to “meet” you.
Hi Lindsay! Just a quick note to say thank you for sharing stories and pictures of your family with your readers. I absolutely adore little Clara, she’s so precious!
How did I not know you lived in North Carolina? I’m closer to the East side but Asheville is one of my favorite places in the world. :)
I just stumbled across your blog and I love it! I love sharing running and my faith with others and it’s awesome to see another strong Christian woman doing the same. I live in Johnson City, TN so we are pretty close geographically too! Keep doin’ what you’re doin’! :)
Thanks, Niki!! We ARE really close! Southern girls gotta stick together.
As I’ve just heard about the Blend Retreat, I have naturally found my way over to your little spot here, and I just love it. Looking forward to peaking around some more!! (and hopefully meeting you in person in May, if I can make it happen)
Just found your blog, Lindsay, and I can’t wait to read more! :D
YAY! Thanks for dropping by! I’m always looking for new blogs to read too – heading to yours now!
Lindsay~!I’m so so happy I found your blog! You’re too funny and I feel like I can relate to you on many levels! And I just saw that you linked up a song by Bethel Church~I love their worship team. Lately I’ve been listening a lot to Kim Walker’s song “show me your glory”. Oh btw, do you know IHOP’s worship group as well?
And I think it’s so cool you’re a trainer! It sounds like such a rewarding and fun job. :D
Hi, Lindsay. Love your blog- plan on following now that I found you. I just started blogging about training for the NYC marathon. I am a Christian too so I am relating my training to my daily walk with God. I would love for you to check it out. I also linked up with She Reads the Truth via your blog. Awesome idea- can’t wait to incorporate it into my daily devotion time.
welcome!! going to check out your journey!
Hi, Lindsay! I stumbled upon your blog, and now I find myself hooked! Your words and fun,encouraging, and radiant spirit has me glued to the screen. I’ve been catching up on all the wonderful posts I’ve been missing out on! It seems as though we have a few things in common. I’m 29 years old,been married for almost 6 years now,and I, too, have been saved by God’s amazing grace. I’m extremely clumsy and uncoordinated as well, but, unlike you, I’m far from being athletic – although I’d like to think so. I’m looking forward to following you and your family’s journey through life. Did that sound too stalker-ish? =)
Not stalkerish AT ALL! I love when I find people with things in common – that’s one of the reasons I blog!! Glad you found me – please keep reading and commenting!
Lindsay, where have been all this time that I’ve been missing out on your fantistic blog!?!?!! (I just learned about it on Going Home To Roost’s blog and SO GLAD I did!)
I’m definitely going to be perusing your site more as soon as I finish my mind-numbing Research Proposal! Thanks for being an inspiration.
So excited to find a Christian Healthy Living Blogger!!!
So glad I just stumbled upon your blog! I am already a big fan!
I too am a list addict, I will make daily to do lists, grocery lists, you name it, I will have a list for it! ha It keeps me sane I believe! It doesn’t matter if I throw the list away an hour later, I like writing my organizing my day before I try to tackle what’s ahead.
Just happened across your blog. I love your honesty and ability to laugh at yourself!
My Dad grew up in the Burnsville area so I know just how beautiful your area is. Keep writing!
Thanks for reading, Anna!! I know the Burnsville area – beautiful!
Hey Lindsay! Just checking out your about me page and am so inspired to hear that you’re a Christian! Will & I were just saved together this past June after 21 years of confusion and lack-of-guidance. Glory to Him! :)
That’s awesome, Britt!! And yes, Glory to HIM!!!
let’s just talk about the fact that we both mention “underbaked brownies” in our about me intros. SOUL MATES, WHAT?
lol..I’ve got an 8X8 pan I’m currently working on! ;)
Love when I find other Christian’s ! Glad I found your blog:)
Thanks for reading, Marian!
Ok, just by reading this, I can tell we’re going to become the best of friends. Big into lists? ME TOO! Big into non-stickiness? ME TOO! Big into being happy? Right there with ya. I could go on but I think you see the point. So glad to find you through LC, too!!
YAY!! Love finding new blog friends! Bookmarked your site.
I’m new to your blog but really enjoying it so far. I thought you lived in Colorado! My husband and I are actually going to Asheville in two weeks (we live in Atlanta, about 4 hours away).
Atlanta is only 2 hours away from me!! I live just north of the NC/GA border!! We should totally meet up sometime. Do you know Tina from FFF? We should all meet up!!
oh and Lee, you should leave a comment on TODAY’s post and try to win some Chobani!
Just discovered your blog and love it so far! Your sense of humor is great, and I love your love of underbaked brownies. ;)
Awesome to know that someone shares my love of salmonella! ;) Thanks for reading, Ashley! Heading your way now!
We almost moved from Steamboat Springs, CO to the Asheville area. 500 inches of snow makes for a very loooooong winter.
oh yes, I remember. Well, Denver wasn’t that bad, but I’m sure that S.S. is way worse as far as snow goes!!
I love WNC! My dad live in the Barnarsville area, up in the mountains, and my grandparents live in Cullowhee. I LOVE that part of the world.
PS. your babies are so chubby and cute!
oh wow!! It’s SO pretty this time of year too – the leaves are changing! Thanks for stopping by, Jessica!! I love new readers!
Just found your blog, love it. I also like your Tuesday Trainer feature. Will be back.
Jodi – I’m not sure if I ever replied to you, but THANKS for reading!!
Hey Lindsay! Just found your site- have to second your affinity for underbaked brownies! Yum!
Hi Lindsay! Love your blog, AND making lists :-) I’m from Durham, NC, but live in MA now. My eldest sister lives in Black Mt., and my other sister went to Warren Wilson, so I know (and love!) the area pretty well.
Can’t wait to keep reading!
Welcome, Kiah!! Love Warren Wilson!! I have many friends who went there. WNC in the Fall is just amazing – can’t wait for the leaves to change!
How could you not like olives? Or white bread? Those are two of my favorite things. :) But I am with you on the underbaked brownies – best thing ever.
I like French Bread (white bread) but not like Wonder bread. Sticks to the roof of my mouth. :)
Your blog is adorable, and so are you little babies – gah, they have such cute little faces!
Thanks, Ashley!! They take after their daddy!
I just came across your blog and love it. I’m married to a Travis too! They’re the best!
Agreed!! Come back soon!
I just found your blog through “knewlywifed”. I love lists! Sometimes I write things I have already accomplished on my lists just so I can cross them off. Is that weird? Haha don’t tell my hubby, otherwise he will realize I’m not really superwoman :) I used to live in Cornelius, near Charlotte and I miss it terribly. Asheville has got to be getting pretty beautiful with fall rolling in!
I’ll keep your “list cheating” a secret! ;) Thanks for stopping in!!
That was meant to be..”TO write stuff down.” I swear, I know English.
This is all me, all the way. I LOVE making lists–and my blog is just another way for me write stuff down. :)
Hey Lindsay! I just found your blog through a tweet from Janeatha @ Meals&Moves…we have a lot in common! Our faith, moving every day, and personal trainers…my husband and I don’t have any kids yet, but maybe one day we’ll be share that in common too. ;) Were you involved with YoungLife? I saw a YL shirt in one of your posts – I interned for a few summers at a YL camp in CA where I’m from but now live in Calgary with my Canadian husband. Anyway, loved reading through your recent entries and glad to have stumbled upon your blog!
Wow! Glad to have found someone as awesome as me ;) My sister is actually involved and got the whole family YL shirts! From what I hear about the program, it’s awesome! Do you blog??
THanks for stopping my blog as well! I live outside of Johnson City, TN, in VA. We love to visit Asheville! Such great food and little shops!
Stumbled on your blog today! So cute, and your green bean canning post reminds me of myself! I live about 1 1/2 hours from Asheville, and live in the same town with e.v.e.r.y. member of my family. Green bean canning is a family tradition for us!
Seems to be a southern tradition!
Thanks for stopping by!! I LOVE when people comment, so please continue :)
Where in N.C. do you live?
Love the concept and title of your blog. I can’t tell you the satisfaction I get from crossing things off my lists!
i was born and raised in Denver. I heart Colorado too! I just moved to Southern California in March. I really like it here, but I am missing Colorado all the time!
Thanks for stopping in!! There is some sort of anxiety release when you cross something off your list! I make multiple lists a day.
We lived in Denver (well, Westminster) for almost 3 years. Which part are you from??
Sorry I took so long to reply to this, I am from Lakewood. I miss it! Best weather ever.
