Happy Saturday Friends
It’s the first Saturday of month which means it’s time for the Ultimate Coffee Date.
Let’s catch up since I haven’t blogged a whole lot this summer due to never-ending fun!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that here we are in August. The summer days are far and few. Back to school and work meetings start next week for both the Hubs and I. I officially begin a new chapter at a new job on August, 15th. I’m excited and nervous! Excited for the new opportunities and nervous for the being full time for the first time in over seven years! I think my biggest fear is getting dinner on the table for my family each night. I’m going to have to step up my Sunday grocery shopping and food prep big time!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that week 9 of marathon training is just about in the books which means we are at the 1/2 way point!! Just over 2 months until I hit the start line of the Chicago Marathon for the 3rd time and 10 years after my first marathon in 2006!! My training has been going great even with the super hot summer we have had! I feel proud and thrilled to be representing the American Cancer Society as a member of their Team DetermiNation.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had the most AMAZING time in Park City, Utah. Probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to.
And the running sunrises….
And all the beauty…
Best girls trip ever and I highly recommend checking out Park City if you are ever looking for a fun, active and beautiful vacation with AMAZING foods!
I’ll spare you all the food pics but there was lots of good eats on this trip!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this little guy isn’t so little anymore…
B turned 18 months on July 28th and continues to blow our mind!
While he and his sister clearly look like siblings they are SO different. This little man loves to climb, run get dirty and get into plenty of trouble. When he falls down he says, “Uh Oh” and gets back up and resumes his trouble! He loves spotting airplanes in the sky and taking long walks to say hi to anyone he sees! He’s so social, engaging, friendly and has the greatest sense of humor!
And he loves his sister more then anyone else!!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am beyond proud of the growth that this little lady has made this summer!! We have had the best summer ever.
No doubt that 7 presents its challenges and as you all know parenting is not all rainbows and ice-cream sundaes but this summer has totally been about making amazing memories and doing all sorts of fun things!!
So while we are getting ready to close the books on summer 2016 I am not too sad since I know that summer of 2017 and those that comes after will probably be just as good if not better!
Speaking of Ice Cream Sundaes… If we were having coffee I would probably tell you that running between 30-40 miles a week means that I am enjoying my fair share of ice-cream. It’s my summer treat and I made a promise this summer never to say NO to really good ice cream. In fact I pretty had the best ice cream ever from this amazing little shop in Utah. I actually told the owner when I leaving that I was sad to be leaving since it was the best ice cream I had ever had!!… Seriously NO EXAGGERATION!! and now as I write this I have thoughts of creamy salted caramel.
So that’s it friends.. as you read this I am probably out running my 13 miles (yeah for a cutback week) or enjoying some time with the family and thinking about having ice cream at some point today!
Tell me what’s been going on with you?!
