MM: February 27

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!

I really need to get better at taking pictures through the week!! Anyway, happy Monday, and here are a few pictures from last week!

Jasper has been so frisky with the cooler weather! And when he’s not running all over the apartment, he’s sleeping.  He’s such a little ham!


I ran my 11th half marathon on Saturday, and will have a race recap up soon! Chris ran his first half and CRUSHED it!  So many of my friends ran this race and did awesome. I didn’t have the race I wanted, but I finished it and learned from it and will be running Longview in a month!



Have a great week friends! I’ll try to do better and take more pictures this week!  Congrats to friends who ran races in St Louis, KC, Des Moines, and Detroit over the weekend!

Monday Mentionings: October 3

Hello, happy October, and happy Monday!

I was in Hays over the weekend, and took Chris along with me, so I only have a few photos from the weekend to share!  We made it into Hays Friday evening, and very early Saturday morning, Chris and I ran 10 miles around Hays.  Mom joined us about halfway through, and it was such a beautiful morning for a long run.


Just after our run, we went to Cervs to get snoballs and then watched the FHSU parade.  Chris had his first snoball.  He’s hooked now too, just like me.


After the parade and lunch (at Lomato’s), we drove around Hays a bit showing Chris the sights, and then got another snoball.  Dad even got one!

Later on Saturday, after dinner with Grandma and Granddad (at Gutierrez), we had dessert and hung out with Grandma and Granddad, and Steve, Leann, and Ava.  Ava was shy at first around Chris, but certainly got over her shyness Saturday night.  She and Chris played for quite a long time.


Sunday morning, Mom and I ran, while Dad biked along with us, then we all went out to the Q for lunch.


After lunch, we walked around Frontier Park and then Chris and I headed back to KC.


It was such a great weekend, and went far too quickly.
