I was just running along and minding my own business when all of the sudden I saw a man sprint by me with a little white dog.  I was still kind of asleep so it took me a second to register that it was my brother.  They were out on a walk and when they saw me running he decided to surprise me:).   We just need to find a way to get them to move here.

Seeing those little blue eyes was a great start to my day.

I then finished up my run and hung out on my porch for a bit.

I use the exact same ingredients to make this egg burrito but when Andrew makes it for me, it just tastes a million times better.

We spent time over at my sister-in-laws sister’s house and she had this granola for us to try and WOW.  Just wow.  I will be purchasing this asap.

From there we went to get the kids snow cones (Skye talks about Tigers Blood flavoring daily) and I had chicken strips and fries there that were delicious.

And that wraps up another summer day!

Oh and then I ate brownies on the couch while I watched Family Feud ha.

A few of my favorite things from this week!

*I was going through a list of the top selling items on Amazon and came across this Hair Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush with 13k 4.5 star reviews and since it was only $8 I decided to try it.  I fell in love quickly and see why everyone else loves it.  It gives you the best scalp massage and feels like you are able to REALLY get in there with your shampoo.  Because I don’t wash my hair a ton… it makes it so that when I do, it is cleaner than ever and just feels really good.  Between this and the Olaplex, my hair is much happier.

*My new hobby:).  I had a bunch of you recommend this book to me and so far I am loving it and it is perfect for a beginner.   I am so excited about getting more into lifting and finally understanding it more.

*I found another pair of cheap leggings that I’m obsessed with (and they have too many colors to choose from!).  They aren’t maternity leggings but with the thick waistband I just went up a size.  They move with you, I love the pocket on both legs, they aren’t see-through, they feel like butter while they are on and they wash really really well…. They are HERE for $25!

*Definitely not a favorite for Andrew ha but the kids have LOVED watching ‘Floor Is Lava’ on Netflix and then we try it at our own house with the furniture ha.

*Gushers.  All of the Gushers.  I might have hid them in my bedroom because I am being a little selfish with them.

Random running q of the day… do you ever crave soda after a hot run/race?

-I normally always do but when I’m pregnant the idea of soda is not my favorite but here is why you may crave it too:

What are your weekend plans?  Anything going on for the 4th?  

What book are you reading these days?

What is a food/meal that always tastes so much better when somebody else makes it for you?

I have a new pregnancy update HERE.  21 weeks and talking about those first signs of labor (I need to hear yours)! ——————————————————————————————— That was a rough one.  Some days running just feels natural and some days you just shuffle through the run. My sister and her awesome stories kept me going and like usual, … Continue Reading

Anybody else out there take self-timer running photos all of the time?  Just me? Hahaha I needed a change of scenery for my run!  I’ve been doing the same loop most days of the week and I decided that I needed a change yesterday. 8.2 miles @ 9:01 average and these lower temperatures remind me … Continue Reading

While so many of you are dealing with crazy heat and humidity, we had another cold day yesterday.  It was 45 degrees for my run!  It’s a huge blessing that it was cold and rainy because on Sunday our area had a lot of big fires happening and the change in weather really helped!  When … Continue Reading

I hit a pregnancy mile record on Saturday so I sat in the grass for a bit afterwards to soak in the accomplishment! I did a warm-up and then went to the track after being inspired by Sam’s IG about her crazy fast mile that morning.  I thought I would start off with some shorter … Continue Reading

A good morning for a good sweat. Came home to these two telling me they wanted to eat outside so they could have breakfast with a view. And then they jumped on the tramp with Beretta in the winter pajamas they insist on wearing even though it was already 75 degrees outside. Then we were … Continue Reading

I learned yesterday that a Costco chocolate muffin makes excellent pre-run fuel.  I’m going to need a lot more of these. It was 73 degrees outside so I was very shocked with my 8:49 average pace… it must have been the muffin. I listened to this episode during the run and it was so inspiring … Continue Reading
