I hope your weekend has been an amazing one so far! We had a really special day for us yesterday so let’s get started with a little recap!
My day started nice and early (my body cannot sleep past a certain time even if I wanted to anymore… maybe because I go to bed so early). 8 miles @ 9:30 average pace. It was one of those runs that felt like it went by SO fast. That hasn’t been the case lately so I gladly welcomed this feeling yesterday.
After my run I ate breakfast with the family and then we all jumped in the car to go over to my sister’s house (her post about her kitchen remodel is going up tomorrow!!!) for her to do my hair and makeup. She is amazing and it gives us time to catch up on everything together while she does it.
Yesterday was a really important day for us. I don’t talk a lot about religion online but I thought I would share a little bit about yesterday for us because it was by far one of the most important days of my life. We had almost all of our family there too which was incredible.
Andrew and I were sealed in the Provo City Center temple. For those of you that don’t know what a sealing is, in our church we have a special ceremony that is called a sealing. In this sealing we believe that we are not only married for time on earth but also after this life. We believe that families are something that go beyond this life, that families are forever and we can be sealed to our children too. Having this ceremony meant everything to me and thank you for letting me share something with you today that is such a big deal for us.
Our amazing parents. PS my dress was of course from Roolee… I loved it.
And of course Brooke and Knox.
After the temple we jumped in our cars to go get food.
We first met up with my side of the family at the Pizza Factory.
We had our own little room and all you can eat salad, breadsticks and pizza of course. We all left beyond full!
A few of the kids at their table.
My brother was in Belgium and flew in to Utah just in time to be there and he brought us back these Belgian Chocolates…. heaven.
After our meal with my family we drove up to Andrew’s parent’s house where they put on a bbq to celebrate!
They had these incredible rocky road brownies… I’ve never seen anything like these. They sure are brilliant at food combinations.
They had a cotton candy machine for the kids too. At the end of the day I was officially exhausted:)
Time for a rest day today (LOTS OF RESTING) and then another running week is up ahead! I finished with 42 miles this last week and I’ve got a half-marathon this week!
What was your mileage last week? What is your happy mileage lately??
What is your Sunday going to involve? Have a rest day this week? When did you take it?
Does your body wake up naturally at the same time each day or do you set an alarm?
