MM: June 5

Happy Monday! Once again it’s been 2 weeks since my last Monday Mentionings post… last Monday Chris and I were in Hays for the long Memorial Day weekend.  Let’s jump right in with a sentence or two per picture!

We are moving to our new townhome in a couple weeks, so we got to packing over these last 2 weeks. Jasper was sure to pack the most important thing first: himself.

A couple weeks ago we also got to try wedding cakes! Delicious.

I also celebrated my birthday a couple weeks ago! My work family had lots of fun surprises for me, and then Chris took me out to one of my favorite restaurants and spoiled me like he’s so good at doing.

Over Memorial Day weekend, Chris and Michelle and I drove to Hays to see family! Belle happened to be planning on going to Hays anyway, so we had a little road trip together! We hydrated properly with Starbucks at the halfway point of the drive, and then snoballs as soon as we got to Hays.

I still can’t run because of my knee issues, but I was able to take a fun walk with Mom and Skye on Sunday morning.

Sunday night was pizza and ice cream sundaes and smores!

And fun pictures with Ava!

Last Monday Morning, Chris and I went for a nice long bike ride around Hays!

Followed by more snoballs and fun with my favorite people before heading back to KC.

Last week, Chris and I went to the Royals/Tigers game – Chris had bought tickets for my birthday. Most unfortunately, Detroit won. =P

This past Saturday, Chris and I walked the Hospital Hill 10k at Crown Center. I had never done the HH 10k before, but I’ve done the half twice. I really enjoyed the 10k, and hope to be able to run it next year!

For the rest of this weekend, Chris and I packed and meal prepped, and Jasper helped, as always.

I’m really excited for the weekend to come, we are going to Detroit!

Happy May!

Once again, I managed to only really take pictures over the weekend.  Jasper and Chris have the most adorable little relationship. Jasper adores Chris, even when he picks him up like this.

Friday, Chris and I had plans to meet up with my best friend from middle school, Bethany, and her boyfriend Sean.  About 20 minutes before work ended, I was given 4 Royals Diamond Club tickets for that night!  Instead of grabbing drinks with Bethany and Sean, we invited them to the Royals game with us!

These seats were AMAZING!  Chris and I got there a bit early and walked around before the game started.  It was  pretty chilly night, but the rain held off, and when the wind wasn’t blowing, it was quite pleasant.

Unfortunately, the Royals lost, but it was fun anyway, and they were ahead for a lot of the game. Our tickets came with food, drink, or merchandise vouchers, so we just had to use them!

It was really great to catch up with Bethany; it’s probably been over 2 years since I’ve seen her! It was nice to meet Sean, and to have her meet Chris.

We had a great time!

Sunday morning, Chris and I ran the Trolley Run.  This was my third time running the Trolley Run, and Chris’ first. It was incredibly rainy and chilly all day Saturday, and we luckily had a break in the rain for the race; it only drizzled a bit.  I’ll have a race recap up soon!

There was some really crazy weather in western Kansas over the weekend, SNOW and blizzard conditions – the interstate was even closed halfway across the state.  I hope everyone out west is safe! Happy May, friends!

Tuesday Mentionings: September 6

Hello! It’s Tuesday! haha, I missed posting yesterday because I had a crazy busy and fun weekend! I hope everyone had a fantastic Labor Day weekend, I know I did!  I have lots of pictures to share from the long weekend.

Saturday, I ran 4 miles with Amy before she left town.  I was then going to run 6 more miles with Chris, but my knee was really acting up, so I ended up biking while he ran, but I did ditch my bike and run 2 miles in the middle with him, so I ended up with 6 miles of running and 4 miles of biking.  Good day!

Sunday morning, Chris and I headed out to the K bright and early for yoga in the outfield of the stadium, before the game.  Mom and I did yoga last year on the outfield, and I was super excited to get the opportunity to do it again!  We ran into Jenn, and hung out with her for the yoga part of the day. The weather was beautiful; the yoga was great, and the morning was just perfect!

We actually got to walk down the tunnel right onto the outfield this year.   It was really neat to walk down through all the field equipment and see the murals on the wall and World Series posters and stuff.

After yoga, we ate breakfast at Rivals, and then watched the grounds crew for a bit before heading to the car to change and wait to get back into the stadium.  We went in and had plenty of time to check out the Hall of Fame, including the 1985 and 2015 World Series trophies, and had a chance to walk around the outfield experience for a bit before heading to our seats.

The Royals and Tigers were playing.. Chris’ team is the Tigers, and mine is the Royals (of course).  Chris joked that we are in a complicated (baseball) relationship. 😛  When the Royals were ahead, Chris made a sad little face, and then when the Royals ultimately lost, I, too, made a sad face.

Monday after a warm Labor Day run, Chris and I hit up the zoo for the afternoon.  We got to see about half of the zoo, we didn’t have time for the Africa section, so we’ll definitely have to go back again.  We had a chance to see the penguins be fed, and watched the sea lion splash show before we left.  It was a lot of fun, I can’t wait to go back to the zoo again!

I’m really excited to go to Wisconsin this next weekend for Kristen’s Ironman and a visit up there. I’m not sure if I’ll have a post next Monday… I’ll try to post a little something, and I’m sure I’ll have lots of pictures on Facebook and Twitter.  Have a great rest of your week, friends!
