MIMM: Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Weekend!

Happy Monday

I’m going to try to get back in the regular habit of blogging on Sunday evenings but we will see how that goes as this warm weather continues.  Because let’s be honest, warm sunny days like the one we had on Friday and yesterday call for HAPPY HOUR!  I’m linking up with Katie for MIMM since this weekend was simply marvelous!!

This weekend marked the return of Happy Hour!

Friday was a warm and fantastic day.  We stayed at Sara’s school and played on the playground for almost an hour 

That was until my neighbor texted me that we needed to return for Happy Hour… and then my mom sent me a text asking if the Hubs and I wanted to grab a drink outside somewhere and enjoy the evening.

We didn’t have to think twice and happily accepted a little time out without children!

I was happy to get out BOTH days this weekend for some amazing running! Saturday, I got caught in some warm rain and it made me feel like a kid all over again and then the Hubs insisted I get out Sunday morning since it was full sun and perfect crisp temperatures!

My drawers have been taken over by Tasc Performance gear.  As I mentioned a few months ago I am thrilled to be a Tasc Performance Ambassador and wear there gear for everything!  More on some of there stuff later!

Anyways, I had two great mile runs and while I am feeling good.. I am still playing it smart and not running the Chicagoland Spring 1/2 Marathon next weekend.  Just going to focus on the North Shore 1/2 Marathon in 4 weeks. I’ve got some major head trash and self talk going on right now as I have NEVER not done a race I have registered for!

We had a great Mother’s Day brunch with my parents and enjoyed the perfect temperatures.  My kids are amazing and I am so grateful every single day for all the joy they bring me and my family!

Post brunch we hung out at home!  It was rough for Sara.. 

And…. I got my Mother’s Day garden!  The Hubs got everything in the ground, washed and folded all the laundry and made dinner!  

Mother’s Day for the WIN!!


How was your weekend?

    It was AMAZING to finally have some great weather! Glad you got out and enjoyed. I got most of my garden in as well. I’m doing the tomatoes and peppers on the deck this year cuz the deer are unrelenting. The kids are SO big!

  5. This weather has been fantastic! I was just out getting our garden started this morning. Yay- it’s funny how dirt and plants can make you so happy!

    Definitely sounds like the right call on the race… but I know how hard it is to not do something you signed up for.
