MM: May 8

Monday! As is becoming normal, I didn’t take any pictures except for the weekend.  The week went by fairly quickly between work, running, workout classes, and baseball.

Friday night, Chris’ band had a show at the All Star Rock Bar. It was tons of fun! In between shows, and after Chris’ show, I was watching the #Breaking2 attempt – Nike was sponsoring 3 elite runners to attempt to break 2 hours in the full marathon. They were trying to take 2:57 off the World Record time.  The attempt was not world record eligible due to pacers and hydration techniques, but it was really fascinating to watch.  I’m sure other bar-goers on a Friday night thought I was odd for watching a marathon at a bar, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Saturday, lots of errands were completed, and then Chris and I ran 2 miles in the evening.  We also saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Sunday, we got up too late to get an early run in, but headed out to Shawnee Mission Parkway around 10:30. It got warm! Spring is definitely here, after temps in the 40s last weekend, it was high 70s, and the sun was hot.  I managed 6 miles, hoping for 7, but it was rough in the heat. Chris had stomach problems and dropped out after 1, but kept me company on my 1.5 mile loops, seeing him and grabbing water every 1.5 miles until I was finished.

The boys enjoyed a short Sunday afternoon nap too. They are so very precious together.

Sunday night we made burgers, corn on the cob, and baked beans. If it’s going to feel like summer outside, we’re going to eat like summer!

I’m excited to go home this weekend to see sisser and her baby bump (squeee!!!), celebrate the baby shower, and have at least 3 amazing snoballs. Have a great week!

I can’t believe February is just about over. Where is this year going, already!?  I was pretty terrible at taking pictures once again last week, but I do have a few to share.  Chris and I have been busy wedding planning, and lots of things have been coming together! Our wedding website is here:!

Wednesday was National Margarita Day, apparently, so Chris and I had to partake. Mmm.


About the only other pictures I have are from last week are from the weekend.  Chris’ band had a show Saturday night in Warrensburg, MO.  We cycled in the morning, got lots of errands done during the day, and then drove out to Warrensburg Saturday evening for the show.


It was a great show, and we stayed to watch the band after Chris’ band, and they were really good as well! It was a fun evening, but made for a pretty late night. We actually got home so late that I texted Kristen, who was in Florida, just waking up (very early) to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon, before I went to bed!


Sunday, after sleeping in, Chris and I went out for our long run. It was a bit cooler than I expected, and my shirt could have used some sleeves!  My ankle and foot is still bothering me a bit from when I sprained it at the beginning of the month, but for the most part it’s holding up.


I really don’t have much else to share. Happy March, this week!

MM: February 6

Last week started off great, I had good runs on both Monday and Tuesday.  The pic below is from my run Monday night.  Then Wednesday, Amy and I met up for a run, and the first 3.65 miles were great, feeling good, having a great talk while running, and then BOOM, I stepped wrong on a stupid walnut and sprained my ankle.  I twisted it and fell hard on my other knee, and DANG it hurt.  Amy actually ran and got her car and came back to pick me up.  I’ve not ran since Wednesday.  I saw my chiropractor on Thursday, and he confirmed it was sprained, but my tendons and ligaments felt in tact and ok.  He scraped it a bit and taped it, and now it’s black and blue and still puffy, but it is getting better. I may try to run on it later this week. Dang walnut!


Thursday night while Chris was at band practice, I went to happy hour with coworkers.  Definitely a fun group to work with.


I sent this text to Chris on Friday, he makes me laugh every day.


Friday night, Chris’ band had a show in the Blue Springs area, which was a lot of fun. Chris actually broke a string about halfway through the show, but kept playing like the rockstar he is.  They have another show in a couple weeks; should be lots of fun!


My boys.  Jasper loves him so much, he is always snuggling up to him.


Saturday  and Sunday, we got so much done! #adulting.  Sunday  morning we stopped and got some John’s Space Age Donuts, and ran a few errands before knocking out lots of chores at home.


I’m really excited for this weekend, Mom and Dad are coming to visit!  Have a great week!
