MM: January 30

Good morning! It’s been quite the week. I started off last week by being sick, which drug on and on.  I am still sniffling and coughing some, but for the most part, I’m back to normal.

The highlight of the week was going wedding dress shopping on Thursday night! Michelle and Amy and I went and looked at several dresses; I didn’t find the one on Thursday, but I did find my perfect dress yesterday, and it’s now hanging in the guestroom, waiting for November!

I saw this gem in my timehop last week, it’s from 7 years ago, when Jazzy was almost a year old.  He was chilling in the chair with Dad.  And dad had a mustache at the time.  Everything about this picture is awesome.

Over the weekend, we finished packing Chris’ apartment and he’s officially moved in with Jazzy and me now!

We were finally able to get outside for a run, in the sun!  It’s been so gloomy and dark and cold, or we’ve been out with head colds, or busy packing, that we haven’t made it outside for a run in far too long.  We went on the trails and though it was chilly and windy, it was so nice to get some much needed Vitamin D and get a good run in!

Have a great week! PS, how is it FEBRUARY this week!!?

Hi friends! I have a quick post today, because as of this writing, I’m feeling quite under the weather.  I forgot I had taken this picture last Sunday night, but missed sharing it with you last week. Jasper is terrified of Chris’ guitars, but has no problem hiding behind them.

I ran a total of 6 miles last week, probably my lowest weekly mileage in at least 3 years… due to my cold and a really busy week in general.  Tuesday night I made it out for 3 miles, and it was a bit chilly but felt really good to get outside again!

Jasper has been oh so in love with his paper bag and sham wow.  Hah. Buy him toys and buy him toys and he plays with random junk!

Thursday night I was able to get back outside again with Amy and Jenn.  It was a great run, felt really good the whole time.  Too bad after that run, I really started going downhill.

Friday I progressively felt worse and worse, and spent all day Saturday and Sunday feeling the full effects of a nasty head cold.

That’s about all I’ve got this week. Not much to share, because not much happened! I do have 1 huge great bit of news, Chris and I have picked a venue and settled on a wedding date! YAY!  More news to come soon!

I’m hoping to rest up and kick this cold’s butt, so I can get back out on the roads and get my growing to do list back under control!  Have a great week!

Once again, I didn’t take too many pictures last week! I have a few to share, though.  KC was expected to get hit with a huge ice storm Friday/Saturday/Sunday. I really was getting tired of running on the treadmill so many days in a row, so Chris and I went to KC Running Co. to run outside Thursday night. Brr it was so cold! We got a few miles in before the storm that never really came.

Friday, work let out early (again, because of the ice storms that never actually showed up!) and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to run.  Usually I take Fridays off, so it was a bonus run last week!

Saturday, Chris and I got so much adulting stuff done, and Jasper spent some time tending to the plants.

We spent a fair amount of time cuddling and chilling on the couch.  Saturday night, I I was the pillow for the boys.  Sunday afternoon, Jasper and Chris shared a nap.

The weather was kind of crappy, drizzly and kind of icy (not nearly the catastrophe that was forecasted) so I opted to run inside. I wanted to get a quality long run in, as I haven’t had a good quality long run in a while.  I managed to get all 10 miles in, only stopping twice to refill water and reset the treadmill! 10 miles!

The rest of Sunday was spent relaxing, watching football, and eating pizza.  Have a great week, friends! Stay safe in the wintery weather!
