Friday Favorites

WOW.  Today was a crazy busy day.  From signing yearbooks (I know…my job is really tough) to cleaning out my classroom and desk (I did find a bag of starburst that I forgot about which made me really happy), I am more than ready for a nap.  So let’s go over a few of my favorite things today:)

1.  Deleted;)

2.  Even though I will really miss my students I couldn’t be more excited for summer.  I am a FREE WOMAN.  Sorry to whoever gets my classroom next because those picture frames are not coming off….turns out heavy duty velcro tears the wall off with it.

3.  This Pina Colada salad is in my top 10 favorite salads ever, don’t believe me…just take a look at my scrapbook that I made with pictures of favorite salads ever and you will believe me.  Toasted coconut, macadamia nuts, almonds and pineapple are the best combination ever.  I chose where to go for our faculty lunch today and everyone thanked me over and over again for being so smart when it comes to choosing restaurants.  (Slight exaggeration…only one person said something).

4.  A dessert from a student to thank me for making him run more than he ever thought possible in PE.  Lemon desserts have jumped to the top of my list from here on out.   Check out the mini spoon!

5.  I am 27 weeks today, HRG Baby update coming soon!  Don’t be too jealous of my pinned back hair, I can do a tutorial on how to do it like this if you want.

Photo copy 6.  It is Friday so that means I have my ‘long’ run tomorrow which is always a favorite!

What are some of your favorite things about today?

I laid out for 40 minutes but felt like I was melting every second I was outside.
I subbed at a high school and wrote 4 disciplinary cards in the 2 hrs I was there! I think thats a record!
I am hanging out with 3 kiddos tonight at 7 and we are making TRIX rice krispie treats. I am PUMPED!

I am spinning tomorrow and then doing a long run on Monday. IDK how long though :/

Yay for the belly! You look great! Its so fun to see your pictures since we are the same week!

Sadly, no awesome workouts this weekend. I work ALL weekend-4 shifts in a row. In nurse terms, that is dreadful.

Can’t wait to read your 27 week update!

And where is that salad from??

favorite things about today are babysitting for the cutest 5 week old twin boys and their 18 month old sister AND dinner with my best friend soon :)

Sunday i have six miles on the calendar for my marathon training plan. it’s supposed to be 92 degrees so i’ll probably be getting up at an ungodly hour to beat the heat. totally worth it for a good run though!

Reply

Coconut on a salad?! This is the most brilliant thing ever! I must try this soon!

I bet you are so excited about being on Summer break!

Favorite things about today:
Waffles for breakfast
Going on a long walk
Ice cream tonight

:) Enjoy your summer break!

Reply

I think I may be the last person in the world to know you are pregnant. I had a break from all things blogging for the last few months. Apparently I missed a bunch. Congratulations!

That salad sounds crazy good!

My favorite part of today is that it starts a 3-day weekend. It’s not like having the entire summer off like SOME PEOPLE I know. :P But I’ll take what I can get. :)

Reply

OK, one of my favourite things is definitely that baby pump picture! SO EXCITED FOR YOU! :)

Reply

Oh my goodness! I have had that salad before if it is from some place that the name is train related ? My brother and sister took me there when I went to visit them at BYU

Reply

Yes yes yes! Art city trolley! Let’s go together:)

Reply

Tomorrow’s long run is going to be a four mile race followed by some more cool down miles. I’ve never run a 4 mile race, so it’ll be a fun automatic PR.

I love that Billy runs! Remember when he surprised you by starting to run in secret? So awesome!

Reply

Baby bump is looking super cute! :)

Where is that salad from?!? Looks delish!

Long run scheduled for tomorrow AM and hopefully will be a good one!

Favorites about today…….It’s FRIDAY! :) And 3 day weekend coming up. Can’t get much better than that!

Yay!! School is out! That must be nice. I miss those days when summer came and freedom hit. It was the best! That salad does look way yummy. I never would have thought of that combo.

Hmhmhmhm well I have started to pack everything up because we are moving next Thursday into a new apt with a dishwasher and washer/dryer. I cannot tell you how excited I am!!!! I dread going to the laundry mat.

I was just going to do 8 tomorrow but I may decide to go for 10. Why not :)

Happy Weekend Girl! Hope you have a great holiday!

I need to know where that salad is from asap! I can thank you a million times (no exaggerations this time!) in return.

Your bump is so cute and so high. Looks like the old wives tale holds true for you.

I am hoping to get my long run in tomorrow, but after doing 17 miles last Saturday at the Ogden Marathon (I did the 1st 7 of my relay group then helped pace another friend doing the full) we shall see how it goes. Plus this week it feels like someone is sitting on my chest when I exercise or whenever I lay down. I have been having a hard time sleeping and it has made for some crappy runs. It feels like I can’t get all my air in and out. I am hoping it goes away soon cause I don’t like it.

Three cheers for a free Summer to sleep in, run whenever you want and hang out with the fam! You are livin the life!

Reply

My dearest Megan! I MISS YOU!! Ha, I don’t know why it is so high but it is making it hard to breath. 17 last saturday…you are incredible and it made me tired just reading that! Let me know how your run goes and boo to the chest thingee…are you sick?!?! You really are right…it is living the life!

Cute baby bump! No workout per se this weekend unless you count gardening and cleaning the house :)

Reply

I literally LOL at some of your posts sometimes. Today being one of them due to “Don’t be too jealous of my pinned back hair, I can do a tutorial on how to do it like this if you want.” hahah I love it. Yay for summer vacation starting!

Reply

I guess this means that you want me to teach you how, it is pretty complicated:) Have an amazing night Bri!!

Reply

I always get super excited when my friends tell me they are starting to run – I just love sharing that passion!

Reply

Awww your students and co-workers are going to miss you!

I get out of work early today! I guess no one wants any imaging done;-) So I get to chill w/the husband–I haven’t seen him since Sunday and it was his b-day yesterday.

I did my long run today–19 miles, every mile was hard (not sure what was up w/that!). Physically it was awful, but mentally I was strong, yahoo!

Reply

Love that baby bump! Keep on growin’ baby! You are doing a great job, Janae!

Reply

Thanks so much Hannah…growin’ this baby is hard work:)

Reply

YAY for last days of school!!! You ARE a free woman!! And so cute pregnant. Enjoy your weekend & your long run. I’ve got a brick workout planned (for the ironman training) ;)

Reply

Oh my gosh; you look like Julie Andrews in the sound of music with your hair like that! “The hills are alive with the sound of muuuusiiic!”

That salad looks amazing where is it from?

Reply

HAHAHA you made my night!! It is from Art City Trolley in Springville. Wanna come with me next time?

Reply

I got new running sneakers + two Lululemon tanks today! This weekend I’m running Boston’s Run to Remember (only the 5 mile race) then joining my cousin for the last two miles of her half!

Reply

So excited for this weekend – running my first relay race ever this weekend! It’s a 275km 17-leg race around one of the prettiest places ever. I can’t wait!! I think my leg counts as my weekend long run :)

Congratulations on finishing up work – it must be so nice to be done and to have some free time! Enjoy it – and have a great weekend :-)

Reply

My favorite thing about today was my double run!! 5 miles ran and 4 miles walked total– such a great workout! Tomorrow I’m looking forward to my yoga class and 87 degree weather :)

Reply

Happy Summer to you!!! :) :) Your baby bump is so precious! One of my favorite things about today is that it is my birthday!!! I LOVE birthdays!

Reply

Lemon Bars are one of the best lemon treats! They are so easy to make too!

Reply

I’m running a 10K on Sunday and I hope I don’t die from the heat. Apparently it’s suppose to rain though, which I’m fine with. I haven’t ran in a few days, so let’s hope this run won’t kill me!!

Reply

I have a sick little one, and even though I HATE my kids being sick, they are just extra cuddle-y and lovey when they are sick. Spent the day snuggling with my little girl and reading books, coloring, and watching her favorite TV shows. Plus we played in the “elevator” which is really my son’s closet that they pretend is an elevator. It’s very sweet to watch my kids play together!

Reply

So maybe you’ve covered this and I’ve missed it (if so, I’m sorry!). Billy is going to law school somewhere next year, right? So you guys are moving. But I’m guessing you don’t have a new job lined up yet? Are you planning on working next school year, or no because of the baby? Just curious! :)

Reply

Favorite thing about today – It’s Friday and a Holiday weekend. Bam!

I’m running 9 miles this weekend with a power yoga session thrown in.

Reply

I want that salad!

My girls are counting down to the last day of school. They go through mid-June. Everyday I get a countdown on how many days of each class they have remaining.

Not sure what I am doing this weekend exercise-wise. I may surprise even myself!

Reply

You look awesome! My favorite part of Friday is the long weekend. So excited to just relax!

Reply

Summer seems to be the perfect time for lemon desserts. I can’t get enough either! Congrats on the end of the school year…now you have all the time in the world to enjoy pregnancy and running and life :)

Reply

Long run tomorrow, and I am already looking forward to getting up for it!

Favorites of today:
Hummus and pita chips
new compression socks came in the mail
PJ’s by 7:30 and watching the bachelorette.

Happy last day you lucky girl.

What kind of dressing did you or would someone use on the pina colda salad??? Looks yummy!!

Reply

They called it piña colada dressing and it was really sweet! So good!

Reply

Today was my last day of school too! YAY for summer freedom! Are you planning on teaching next year wherever y’all move?

My very first “long” run in my half marathon training is tomorrow, but it’s only 4 miles. It’s supposed to be 97 degrees here with high humidity (as always), so I’m getting up pretty early on my first day of summer to get my run in.

Have a great weekend! And that salad sounds amazing!

Friday favorite: wine to celebrate National Wine Day & then not setting an alarm for Saturday morning- does it get any better!!! :)

Reply

My favorite thing about today is that we just bought a grill! I can’t wait to start grilling up some tasty eats. :)

Reply

I went to the UA outlet tonight, and I saw a woman who came in with itty bitty outfits from Carters, and a little bulge, and she was buying some bigger running shorts…

I immediately thought of you. :)

Reply

My favorite thing about today is spending time with my best friend in Denver! I only get to see her a couple times a year. And yes, we went and got froyo. So necessary!

Reply

You look glowing in your pregnancy picture! Love. Favourite things today are hanging with my friends tonight for a birthday event and going to starbucks for my daily coffee fix.

I’m going for 9 miles tomorrow. Longest I’ve ever run. I’m really looking forward to it!

Reply

I’m doing my long run this morning with a buddy, which I am so excited about because it has been WAY too long. However, I’m drinking coffee before a run for the first time..so we’ll see how that goes! :)

Reply

Your little bump is so cute!!

Reply

Don’t be too jealous of my pinned back hair, I can do a tutorial on how to do it like this if you want. <– You crack me up!!! :D Yes, yes, PLEASE do a tutorial!! Haha!!!

Reply

I had a 10 mile run scheduled for today. It was raining when I left but I don’t mind that. 1.37 miles in and the thunder and lightening started. I raced home after that. That is the only thing I will not run in. Since I live in Wisconsin and the weather here is nutty, tomorrow will be a 90 degree sunny day so I will get up early and do my run then.

Reply

Aww your belly is getting so big! I am so excited for you! You really need this summer vacation!
What are your plans for after the baby comes? Will you and Billy already be moved to which ever law school he chooses? Are you going to work? Sorry just curious, I absolutely adore you girl!

Reply

I am sooo jealous that you are done with school! We still have one more week and I feel ripped off :)

Were you sad to say goodbye to your classroom? I don’t think I would be. I’d be excited to peace out of there!

I read your post about Which Wich and I’ve been wanting to try it. Now I definitely NEED to!
